SE spoiler: a cosmic connection to come into play

From TV Guide:

Any scoop on Stefan and Elena on Vampire Diaries? I’m still holding out hope for them! — Kendrick
NATALIE: I guess it’s a good thing that my colleague Robyn Ross was on set this week to ask Nina Dobrev that question! She says that Elena’s connection to Stefan will clue her in to the fact that something is not right with him (aka he’s drowning at the bottom of the river.) “She has this weird feeling something is going on. It’s this cosmic connection you have with someone that you’ve spent so much time with and I don’t know if that will go away,” Dobrev says. “She knows she’s in love with Damon, but she still cares for Stefan and wants to make sure he’s OK … and when she finds out what he’s been through, it’s not easy for her.”
