Is The Vampire Diaries love triangle not going your way right now? See what Nina Dobrev has to say about Elena and Stefan’s “cosmic” connection.

The Vampire Diaries season 5 begins airing in exactly one month, picking up a few months after the season 4 finale.

Last season, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) found their way to one another despite sire bonds and other complications, while Stefan (Paul Wesley) found out he was the doppelganger of Silas – who then proceeded to trap him at the bottom of a lake, assuming his identity.

However, Stefan won’t stay in the lake forever, and we can expect Elena to have a hand in saving him.

“She has this weird feeling something is going on,” Nina Dobrev tells TV Guide.

And even though Elena is now with Damon, Stefan and Elena still share, “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 also hints that Stefan will be freed from his underwater prison sooner rather than later. “And when she finds out what he’s been through, it’s not easy for her,” she says.

Do you think Elena will go back to Stefan in The Vampire Diaries season 5? Or will she stay with Damon?

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, October 3, airing at 8/7c on The CW. The first episode is titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”
