Take a deep breath, Vampire Diaries fans, because we’ve got an exclusive Damon-Elena clip from Thursday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) that’s literally designed to break your heart — and trust us, it will succeed.
Damon and Elena begin the clip by discussing potential honeymoon destinations for Alaric and Jo, but it doesn’t take long for Damon to redirect the conversation to his girlfriend’s future, asking her where she’d hope to be in five years, were she a human.
What comes next is a dream come true for every fan of this couple: a play-by-play of Damon and Elena’s perfect life together, complete with wine, massages, an apartment in Tribeca and “of course, eventually” two kids.
The bittersweet reality, though, is that Nina Dobrev only has four episodes left as a series regular, so even if there is a happily-ever-after for Damon and Elena down the road, it’s unlikely we’ll see it until that inevitable series finale flash-forward.
