TV Line chats with Julie Plec about what to expect when the show returns from a 2 month hiatus tonight with Episode 3.10 “The New Deal”. Julie mentions that “It will be well worth [your] while” if you tune in. “There’s a good little series moment.” And here’s what she had to say about the long-awaited moment between Damon and Elena.
DAMON & ELENA: AT LAST! | After several very close moments this season, how much longer can the will-they-or-won’t-they pair go there without actually going there? “We’re not in the business of the eternal tease that never goes anywhere,” Plec hints. “That’s not how we like to tell our stories.” In fact, she promises that “ultimately, there will be a payoff” to the long-building sexual tension between Stefan’s ex and his bro. But, she adds, the long-awaited moment, particularly “what it is and when it happens, may be surprising to people.”
