Ian Somerhalder is extra playful in this interview with Zap2it, dodging questions about the sire bond and Damon and Elena’s relationship. He does have some insight into Elena’s state of mind, however, and talks a little about Rebekah and that character’s similarities to Damon. Ian also shares some of the truest words ever spoken about Mystic Falls:
“Can they sustain a relationship? Or — not a relationship, they are in a relationship, but can they sustain a romance? It’s hard to sustain anything in Mystic Falls, except, like, a drinking habit. Those seem to be pretty sustainable,” he teases.
As the countdown ticks ever closer to Thursday, the CW has released another webclip featuring Damon and Klaus for Bring It On (EP416), courtesy of TV Guide!

RACE FOR THE CURE — Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) take off in search of Katherine (also played by Nina Dobrev) and find themselves in a small town in Pennsylvania, where Elena has a surprising encounter with another old acquaintance — Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies). Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are both concerned about Elena’s state of mind and are determined to do what’s best for her, but she makes it clear that helping her will be difficult.

FLASHBACK TO DAMON’S LIFE IN 1970s NEW YORK / THE BAND DEAD SARA PERFORMS — Realizing that Elena (Nina Dobrev) needs some time away from Mystic Falls, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes her to New York City, where he lived and partied hard in the 1970s.

Flashbacks reveal Damon’s hedonistic life in the underground club scene and a complicated encounter with Lexi (guest star Arielle Kebbel).

The second half the season will be more grounded in high school. What can we expect?
Plec: We just started shooting the prom episode, which is episode 19 and graduation is going to be the finale. We’ll get to end the season with all of those great questions of who’s going to be where, who’s going to be with who, who’s going to do what.
