“Vampire Diaries” fans are rejoicing for the good news: Delena was crowned as the Best TV couple of 2015! The star-crossed lovers bested 18 TV couples in MTV’s voting list of 2015.
Despite Nina Dobrev’s departure last season, Delena still got the top spot. According to MTV, Delena is “timeless,” and the show must thank all passionate “Vampire Diaries” fans. Fans stood by the couple since the beginning of the show in 2009.
Fans started shipping for Delena when Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) was still with Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). The love triangle brought ships of Team Stelena vs. Team Delena. And in the show’s fourth season, Delena fans finally got their wish!
Although Elena is missing in action this season, the site noted that she wasn’t entirely forgotten. But without Elena physically around, Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) seems to be going off the edge with his “madcap ways.” Since he’s currently trapped inside the Phoenix Stone, he’s probably reflected on what Elena would say about his actions.
According to MTV, that was the “crux” of Delena’s relationship. Damon and Elena breathed life into each other. Without Elena, Damon feels lost – the same thing that happened to Elena at the beginning of Season 6.
Despite speculations on Nina’s rumoured return, it looks like fans may never get another Delena moment.
