Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec has confirmed that the upcoming season finale will see Elena (Nina Dobrev) make a choice between the Salvatore brothers.
The love triangle between Elena and vampire brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has intensified over recent episodes.
In an interview with HitFix, Plec suggested that the episode will provoke a strong reaction from the show's fanbase, many of whom identify themselves firmly as either 'Stelena' or 'Delena' supporters.
She joked: "I might have to leave the country.
"No, for us it's really, really important that we took a good, strong look at Elena's character, at her wants and her needs, where she is in her life.
"Hopefully people who are fans of the show and fans of Elena and fans of real human behaviour will understand and respect the choice that she makes, in spite of a percentage being very sad and another percentage being happy.
"So we shall see, but it is not going to be pretty, I'll tell you that."
Asked whether this would be the final resolution, Plec responded: "No, absolutely not!
"This show is a journey of a teenage girl finding her way back to life through the love of one vampire and discovering maybe other elements of life through the love of another vampire, growing up, graduating high school, moving on.
"There's a whole road for her still to travel and our brothers are in the middle of their journey as well. For us to say that this is the one and only choice and no other choice will ever be made would be premature."
Actor Ian Somerhalder recently suggested that the brothers will bond in forthcoming episodes, despite their shared affections for Elena.
