vampire diaries 604 sneak peek

A new sneak peek for “The Vampire Diaries” Season 6, episode 4, gives Stelena fans hope for a possible reunion (sorry, Steroline fans). In the latest clip for the episode, titled “Black Hole Sun,” Elena (Nina Dobrev) is trying to keep Stefan (Paul Wesley) in town—technically, on the outskirts of town. Supernatural creatures still can’t get into Mystic Falls without dying, and that’s definitely not helping Elena’s argument.

Stefan came back to Virginia to find Enzo (Michael Malarkey). He gave Enzo to Tripp (Colin Ferguson) in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6, episode 3, so he doesn’t really have a reason to stick around now. The promo video shows Stefan on his motorcycle headed out of town, but Elena stops him. She thinks Georgia is just an escape for Stefan.

“So you’re just going to throw in the towel and go back to your fake new life?” Elena asks.

“Look, my fake new life ended when Enzo decided to kill my not-so-fake girlfriend Ivy,” Stefan says. “So I am going to go home, pack up and start over. Again.”

Elena might have sympathy for him, but that doesn’t mean she is letting him go that easily. She stole his keys, but Stefan assured her that starting over wasn’t new to him. He had a “system” for ditching an old life and starting a new one, and starting fresh wasn’t painful anymore.

“Prove to me that your system works," Elena said. "If I believe that you actually are happy, then I’ll let you go. But if I don’t buy it -- which I probably won’t -- I will keep harassing you until you come home, and I’m talking about like Enzo-sized harassment.”
