There’s no worse feeling than a bad breakup (or at least it feels like this during the process) and, if you’re a empathetic vampire like Stefan Salvatore, the process is probably the equivalent of one thousand vervain-dipped daggers piercing your pale, muscular skin.
In the sixth episode of The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Elena admitted to Stefan that her longings for Damon were growing stronger by the day. So what did Stefan do? He set her free because he loves her — and also because his girlfriend lusting after his brother is an extremely uncomfortable situation for him to be in. And this week, in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 7, Stefan will spill the news of the split to Damon. How will Damon react? Watch the sneak peek from “My Brother’s Keeper” to preview the heartbreaking tension between the Salvatore men:
Luckily, Damon — who spent decades searching for Katherine only to have his proclamation of love spurned by her — knows a thing or two about the harsh side of relationships. So, instead of pressing the matter, he talks shop with Stefan and reveals that Matt (Zach Roerig) made an interesting connection. He linked up phone records between Pastor Young and Professor Shane (David Alpay) and saw that the two were in communication with one another on the day that Pastor Young blew up the Founder’s Council. Damon even jokes that the college instructor is even sketchier than the Ripper himself.
Stefan doesn’t seem amused at this recent development at all though and leaves the house to go off and brew up a proper plan to track down the cure with Klaus.
