We didn’t leave Damon on a great note at the end of Vampire Diaries season 3, and executive producer Julie Plec has opened up about where we can expect things to stand with the character when the show returns in October.
“He needs a new drinking buddy. He’s actually feeling alone and how he starts to fill that void will be part of his journey as we go forward this season.”
Speaking of the renewed dynamic between Stefan, Damon and a newly vampire-ised Elena, Ian Somerhalder said, “Elena was a bad-ass girl, but now she’s a bad-ass vampire girl and now she can take care of herself – finally! It could be a lot of fun.” [TV Guide]
