From TV Guide: Mega Buzz: Elena’s “Hurtful” Choice
Q: Stefan and Elena seem like they’re in a good place on The Vampire Diaries. Will they stay that way?
Natalie: Those two are definitely in it for the long haul. But while they had some meaningful conversations about their future in the premiere, this week’s episode will bring trouble to paradise. Expect Elena and Stefan to clash after a particular “interaction” between Elena and Damon. “It’s something unintentionally hurtful she does to Stefan that she has to then deal with the repercussions of,” executive producer Julie Plec says.
