The Vampire Diaries returned last night with "Bring It On", and what better way to celebrate than watching smoldering star talk all about it.
In an interview with TV Guide, Somerholder reaffirms his view on Elena, saying:
It's super cool to see this super empowered woman where the boys aren't scared she's going to walk out the door and get killed, because she's a badass chick who can hold her own.
He also hints at what Damon thinks about this whole thing:
I really want her to be my hot sexy vampire girlfriend, but I really don't want her killing everybody.
A reference to 's edgy new look, perhaps! Might Damon end up pushing Elena back into the arms of his brother, Stefan ()?
If you want more Somerhalder (and who doesn't?), then you can catch the full interview here, and see Damon in the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday 8/7c on The CW.
