This is probably so outdated already but I just had to share.
I've noticed something in the EW 사진 that the trio did. To some people, they may have just seen Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesly. But they failed to see that they were actually portraying their characters in the shoot. Can't really blame 당신 though. The 사진 were distracting. Anyways, I always thought that the themes used in the Ian-Nina and then Paul-Nina pics meant something. White and innocent for the former. Black and seductive for the latter. I thought it was about Damon and Stefan at first so that's why I got so confused. I thought that because Damon is portrayed to be the not-so-good Salvatore that he'd get the dark theme while Stefan, being the "good" brother, would have gotten the lighter one. It made sense. But, no, the themes were interchanged.
Then it suddenly hit me. The themes weren't revolving on the two guys after all. It was about Nina. Well, 더 많이 specifically, her character.
Nina was definitely playing Elena Gilbert in her 사진 with Ian. She was smiling and looking at 당신 with innocent doe eyes. Even the body language screamed Elena: hand in Damon's hair, holding hands with Damon, and hugging Damon from behind. All of the 사진 of the two of them in the EW shoot made me want to say 'awwww' which I did anyway. Damon and Elena [Ian and Nina] looked happy and very much in love.
But in her 사진 with Paul, Nina was dark, alluring and almost evil. That does not fit the character 설명 of Elena at all. Unless... Stefan wasn't with Elena in their shoot but with Nina's other character, Katherine. That would explain the black sheets and the choice of lingerie. Gone were the innocent smiles and loving looks. They were replaced with seductive smirks and teasing looks. Very Katherine Pierce, don't 당신 think?
And now I'm hearing about the new TV Guide covers. I've seen the one with Nina and Ian, and I definitely agree that they are Elena and Damon in that photo. But, unfortunately, I still haven't seen the Nina-Paul cover so I can't really tell if Nina looks like Katherine in that one.
But if it did happen to be true, then the EW covers couldn't have been a coincidence. It would then be a foreshadowing for the show, a clue that it will be Stefarine and, 더 많이 importantly, Delena in the end.
