The Vampire Diaries Season 5: How Will Stefan Be Different?
Then again, Stefan could emerge from the vault having realized what’s really important to him.
Option 1: Elena. Maybe Stefan will come back and be sick of sitting around, letting Elena pick a Salvatore. What if he were ready to fight to get her back? Would she change her mind if Stefan were so outspoken with his intentions?
Option 2: Family. Stefan realizes that Damon is the most important person to him, and he decides to stick around Mystic Falls to bond with his brother. Or maybe he wants them to leave town together, Elena and all.
Option 3: Eternity. Perhaps his experience in the vault will help him realize that he really does have all of eternity left to experience, so why do it in Mystic Falls, Va.?
