I have some spoilery goodness to spread about the season 3 finale of The Vampire Diaries, “The Departed”. Our Salvatore brothers will rediscover what family really is, while the ever growing tension between Stefan, Elena and Damon will finally come to a head.
“What’s interesting about what’s happening right now is the dynamic between the brothers. They are starting to really bond,” Ian Somerhalder tells TVGuide.com. “A tease about the episode coming up is really about these brothers overcoming their disdain for each other and ultimately realizing that family is really embedded into the fabric of who we are and if you can connect with that it’s really powerful.” Paul Wesley adds, “Stefan and Damon will always love each other, but they’ll always be in love the same girl. They’ll die that way or they’ll live that way for the rest of their lives.” If the triangle reaches a breaking point, can the brotherhood withstand whatever decision Elena ultimately makes? “Yes,” Wesley states firmly. “The bond of blood is an amazing bond.”
“This whole Damon-Elena-Stefan thing is coming to a head. Stefan knows that there are feelings flying around between the three of them and he’s man enough to understand that this is a symptom of love and how complicated it can be.”
