Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder may be on a weekly series but that doesn't mean fans can get enough of the pair. The real life lovers have just wrapped filming the popular CW series but Vampire Diaries addicts are aching to know how season three will conclude. Hope has emerged in the form of new stills and statements  from executive producer Julie Plec.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Plec recently commented on Jeremy's fate and how it effects Damon and Elena's relationship. She revealed:

After all the efforts to keep him safe, ultimately [Elena and company] are going to realize he may not be safe anywhere. Mystic Falls, where people can look out for him, may be the best place for him to be.

Four images have been released from the episode entitled Heart of Darkness (which will air on April 19th). The suspenseful episode centers on Damon and Elena's realization that Jeremy has been keeping company with edgy vampire Kol. The photos offer an interesting spoiler! It seems that Kol becomes quite hostile and even assaults Damon. Perhaps the vamp is unaware that you just don't mess with the dark and edgy Damon.

The high profile couple have been filming non stop for the past nine months and are rumored to be taking a much need vacation together. The actors took to twitter to express their excitement that a break was on the way. Ian tweeted That's a wrap on Season 3!!!!!!!!!! while Nina's tweet was similar.

See how it all plays out when the episode airs next week.
