Compulsion can be a bitch. It can also come back to bite a vampire. As we saw when Caroline (Candice Accola) turned, all the times Damon (Ian Somerhalder) compelled her came rushing back. Expect the same to happen to Vampire Diaries’ newest bloodsucker.
According to TV Guide, Elena (Nina Dobrev) will have at least one serious flashback involving Damon (Ian Somerhalder), but it’s not their very first meeting she’s remembering — at least, not yet. Instead, Elena will be confused by a memory of Damon telling her he loves her from Season 2, Episode 8, “Rose.” Why does the moment mess up the new vampire so much? Elena doesn’t realize she’s reliving the past, as opposed to experiencing something in the present.
