The Vampire Diaries fans are eagerly waiting to see the reunion of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder in upcoming Season 8. The duo have always amazed the fans by their superb acting and their off-screen PDA’s. Ever since their breakup in 2013, fans have been waiting to see a possible reunion. However, it looks like Somerhalder’s wife, Nikki Reed, does not want that to happen, as she is afraid of a possible affair.
It was earlier reported by Hollywood Life that Reed and Somerhalder are on very mature terms with each other, and if there will be a possibility of her husband’s reunion with his ex-girlfriend on TVD, then she will not have any problem, as she understands the nature of their industry.
“Nikki and Ian are so in love. There’s nothing he could possibly do to upset her. The idea of Ian and Nina reuniting on screen for The Vampire Diaries doesn’t bother her one bit. She has no issues with this whatsoever. Nikki and Ian are celebrating their one year anniversary on April 26, and that’s what she’s most looking forward to for the time being.”
In an earlier interview with E! News, xXx star also confirmed that she cares for Somerhalder, and if a reunion on The Vampire Diaries will affect his married life, then she will choose to stay away from it.
“I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him, and that didn’t change. Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.”
But now it looks like things are drastically changing between the happily married couple. According to Australia Network News, Reed-Somerhalder’s marriage is facing a new challenge these days. The outlet further reported that it is very distressing for Reed to see her husband getting intimate with Dobrev. The actress also seems worried, as there are chances that during the shooting of Season 8, the lost long will again rise between the two.
From the past couple of weeks, it is also being speculated the news of a Dobrev and Somerhalder reunion on The Vampire Diaries is only because The CW wants to save the show. Ever since Dobrev left the supernatural series after Season 5, fans started to wonder if she will ever again portray the role of Elena or Katherine. TVD fans lost all their hope of seeing Somerhalder and Dobrev back again when the actor announced that Season 7 will be his last on the show.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, fans of The CW’s show do not care which character Dobrev will portray, as long as she shares screen space with Somerhalder’s character Damon Salvatore. The outlet further stated that the news of their reunion is only to create a hype in order to regain the lost ratings of the show. If the early episodes from the series create enough buzz, then there are chances that the show will go on for more seasons.
TVD’s Season 8 is rumored to be its last, and according to showrunner Julie Plec, fans will get to see Dobrev for one more time. During her conversation with TV Line, Plec stated that The CW will try their best to bring the lead lady back to the show.
“In my opinion, she was very clear about what she wanted the next step in her life to be, and she’s doing a great job of achieving that. So I’m sticking with my side of the plan, which is to bring her back at the very end.”
The CW has already made an official announcement that The Vampire Diaries is indeed returning to the network for Season 8. However, no one has confirmed the news of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder’s reunion.
