The mid-season finale of The Vampire Diaries ended with a wicked twist neither we nor Klaus (Joseph Morgan) saw coming: Stefan (Paul Wesley) stole a moving truck full of coffins, some of which contained Original Vampires. (We’re still not sure why there were so many pine boxes. The Original family isn’t that large.) Some time will have passed when we return with Season 1, Episode 10, “The New Deal,” but Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) haven’t yet caught up with the (reformed?) Ripper.

Executive Producer Julie Plec spilled some spoilers about their reunion to TV Line — and it’s bad news for Delena fans. “When Elena and Damon finally have the opportunity to confront him about his recent actions, his response makes Damon think twice about acting on his feelings for Elena,” says Plec. Perhaps he’ll explain that by saving Klaus’ life, he was really saving Damon’s?

Another couple who is having some trouble is Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) and Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino).The birthday girl is bumming hard in Season 3, Episode 11, “Our Town,” but maybe all hope for Forwood isn’t lost. Plec says, “she and Tyler come to terms with their recent breakup and what Tyler’s sire bond means for their future.” Whether or not they should be together is a contentious question, but the heat between these two is too intense for them remain platonic for long…
