‘ Damon and Elena on the road to happily ever after?
The upcoming episodes of the CW series will find the lovebirds “finally working their way back towards each other,” executive producer Julie Plec previewed at a Television Critics Association press tour panel in Pasadena on Sunday. As the couple strives for “a functional relationship,” fans will be treated to the beginning stages of their romance that they missed the first time around.

That pleased star Ian Somerhalder, who noted, “The three or four [or] five months that were skipped over, the honeymoon phase, you don’t typically get to see Damon in a time and space where he’s truly happy.”
“It’s great to see anyone happy at any time,” he continued, adding that Damon and Elena are “extremely deserving” of some happiness. “They’ve been through a lot. Love trumps all. So when you see, you want it to win.”
But everything can’t be peaceful on the show, so the Gemini merger will “culminate with a lot of drama and death,” EP Caroline Dries teased.
, Plec said she and Kevin Williamson crafted their “perfect” ending a while ago. However, since “the show is going to go on longer than we could have dreamt of,” the concept has “evolved.”
“But it’s still rooted in that same idea. We’re still on that same path,” she continued.

, the back half of the season will explore Esther’s origins as a witch, the deal she had to make and more of the family mythology. And of course, the looming threat of witch Dahlia to Hope’s safety is prevalent.
“The big question is will she show up and come for that child?” EP Michael Narducci teased, adding that Klaus might have a different strategy for protecting his young daughter than Elijah.
yeah we dont listen to fan demands SAYS the EP who literally gave Delena stans what they asked for! She´s the worst and yay more Dullena that will be superfun! and i´d never thought that somebody shockingly would try to steal magic super power baby hope! such unpredictability…..
I just don’t see what a “honeymoon phase” adds: they already went through one back when they were cheating on Elena’s boyfriend/Damon’s brother. They already drained any story they got there. If Bonnie & Damon aren’t happening there’s no use to keep this on the DVR.
Darn. I was sort of hoping for a Damon/Bonnie hook up. I quit watching because Delena made me sick.
I was actually looking forward to see Damon & Bonnie and what them and Stefan & Caroline could do to brotherly dynamic. It’s the same old stuff, I’d rather continue with The Big Bang Theory, at least their characters are moving forward.
I’m hoping there will still be a Damon/Bonnie romance when she returns. That would be the perfect way to end the honeymoon phase – a kick-butt Bonnie return. Elena would never suspect Bonnie would be a threat to her relationship with Damon.
TVD a.k.a The Dullena Fanservice show is just the worst. Like yeah I’ll def check back to see Dullena’s honeymoon phase. Sic. The Kevin Williamson ending got me excited for a second but that was it. Let me see, what I loved: Katherine, The Originals, S1 Badass Damon, Defan, Stelena, Forwood, Klaroline scenes oh and the good stories. But Plec and Dries killed all. Thanks for making me invested, I had three good years with TVD overall. Who knows, I guess the ending will be a Delena wedding with a baby.
For TO I really hope it will be good, because I care about Esther’s past and Dahlia and Freya’s fate, but I just hate recasts and want to see most of the original actors weekly. Anyway, if they really kill a sibling off again as I read, I guess I’ll quit. I love everyone (especially Kol and Rebekah) but Finn, and he just became a regular. But at least if I’d quit, I could cross Plec out of my life for good.
It just gets more and more repetitive and boring. I skipped most of the first half and truly missed nothing.
Cool. Was a bummer to miss seeing them happy. Hope there’s some more crossovers with the Originals. I miss Caroline/Klaus
Oh… These are good news!!! Hope finally we get see Damon and Elena as the couple they should have been last season. Season 1 to 4 were so promising! Their love story and journey was one of the best on TV ever.
Plus I hope they don’t ruin Defan again. Love them atm.
The Gemini coven is interesting and I’m waiting for the friends to team up to fight Kai
Ps: Kai is sooo good. Best billion next to Klaus.
You can then use the robot to clean that area when you
accomplished, it basic goes back to its designated docking station, waiting for
more orders from you. Built in noise sensors can detect when there is a lot of
mess to clean up so the Roomba robotic vacuum will stop moving so far and
No! Enough Delena please!!! It’s tired and it’s boring! Stop forcing this ship down our throats!!!
I truly can’t believe they are going to continue on this path. I skipped the last two episodes before the winter break and I didn’t miss it all. I think I’m finally done. I’ll just stick with rewatching seasons 1-3.
Yaay! The Delena news makes me so happy! It’s true, we didn’t get to see them happy for very long, so it’ll be a nice reprieve from all the sadness and gloom that that ship normally gets.
I’ve been really enjoying Delena and Kai this season. It’ll be really nice to see the parts of their relationship that we missed during the fast forwarded summer. Can’t wait. Hope they explore more of the origins of the gemini coven too.
Thank goodness for the Delena news. It will be good to see them happy & drama/guilt-free and attempt to have a healthy normal r/ship. I don’t care if people say its fan-service anymore because at this point the only people who still care to watch the show are Delena fans so the EPs might as well give us – the last remaining fans – what we want.
This is the best day ever, TVD & Reign getting renewed and then getting a confirmation that Delena is going to happen. I hope the death of a main character is not Damon or Elena.
Oh good. This means I don’t have to feel bad about not watching anymore!
