We've been going round and round on the Stefan-Elena-Damon train for a while now, and so far the producers have been clearly on Stefan's side. Damon's love is for Katherine, not Elena. But things may change...
“Damon is obsessed with Elena’s doppelganger, and if one day Elena’s doppelganger is not in the picture, it’s an immediate transference,” explains exec producer Julie Plec. “We’ll see him have an evolution of feelings for her. And, over time, we’ll see her wonder if there’s something redeemable about this guy.”
This begs the question: when and how is Katherine leaving the picture? Could it be linked to the tomb storyline?
