Get ready Vampire Diaries fans, we're only a few short days away from the show's highly anticipated return, but that doesn't mean the less patient (i.e. me) can't indulge in a little pre-Vampire debauchery. The CW has released clips for the series' upcoming episode titled "Heart of Darkness," showing Elena's seemingly endless search to choose between two gorgeous Salvatore brothers. (Don't you just feel so bad for her?)
Sure, there's something about going to retrieve Jeremy and have a heart-to-heart with Alaric, but the main point is that Elena is finally coming to terms with her true feelings for bad boy vamp Damon.
It still remains unclear as to what those feelings could potentially be, but given the recent photos that have been released for April 26's episode — the one showing Stefan and Elena holding hands and embracing — the prospect of a full-on Delena relationship blossoming from this still appears bleak at best. But as this show has proven to viewers time and time again, nothing is as straightforward as it seems, so don't give up on the idea of some sort of romance in their future.
At the very least, these clips just further prove that even if she doesn't care for Damon quite as much as Stefan, she's definitely getting there. Even a spirit is pulling for these two to be together. Come on writers, let's make this happen already!
Check out new TVD clips below and get a taste of what's to come. Hopefully it will quench your thirst until this love triangle picks up where it left off on April 19 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on The CW.
