If The Vampire Diaries' Elena wasn't sure of her feelings for Damon before, she certainly is now.
On the Season 5 finale, viewers sobbed along with Elena (Nina Dobrev) as she realized the love of her life Damon (Ian Somerhalder) wasn't coming back from the Other Side.
"In high-stakes situations where anything can happen... it really makes you think about your life and what's most important and who's most important," Dobrev tells TVGuide.com in the video from the CW Upfront below.

Although Damon won't be by Elena's side when the series returns in the fall, it's clear that she and Stefan (Paul Wesley) will finally be in a place where they can lean on each other as friends in his absence.
"If you look back to Season 1, it's been very hectic for her and it's nice [for her and Stefan] to be in a settled place," she says. "But it's the CW; we're not going to stay there for very long. She's not going to be happy for more than 15 minutes in the first episode of Season 6."
Change is coming to The Vampire Diaries.
The CW show's fifth season wrapped up by executing a plan to save the Other Side. After getting all The Travelers in one place, and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) setting up a gas leak, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), with Elena (Nina Dobrev) in tow, crashed through the Mystic Grill causing a massive explosion that killed all parties involved. Once on the Other Side, while Liv (Penelope Mitchell) enacted a resurrection spell, Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Alaric (Matt Davis) were able to cross back through...
Stefan isn't really staying dead on The Vampire Diaries, right? That's the big question heading into Thursday's Season 5 finale.
As the Other Side crumbles and The Travellers' plan to rid Mystic Falls of all spirit magic is in full effect, it's a race against time to figure out how to solve those very big problems. With Stefan (Paul Wesley) having his heart ripped out in the final moments of last week's episode, now more than ever do Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Bonnie (Kat Graham), Caroline (Candice Accola) & Co. need to pull together to bring Stefan back — and also save themselves from impending doom.
How will Damon react to the death of his brother? By threatening Bonnie!
On The Vampire Diaries' penultimate episode, Stefan (Paul Wesley) was shockingly killed in the final minutes by the Traveler inhabiting Tyler's body. And with the Other Side disintegrating, Stefan could potentially go away forever. Now Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is downright pissed, and he is taking it out on the wrong person considering Bonnie (Kat Graham) is their biggest hope to figuring out a way to bring Stefan back.
The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder knows a thing or two about empowering people to make a change in the world. Through the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which he started in 2010, the actor aims to educate and collaborate with individuals and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.
But it was working on Showtime's docu-series Years of Living Dangerously that he realized the amount of high-profile — and very educated — people actually in opposition to the very message he stands by. On Sunday's episode (10/9c), Somerhalder works with activist Anna Jane Joyner to debate with and hopefully convince her father, evangelical megachurch preacher Rick Joyner, that climate change and global warming is real and is happening.
