“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.
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.
MTV’s poll for The Best TV Couple of 2015 was up for almost two weeks. And on December 29, the site revealed the official list. Here’s the Top 5:
- Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, “The Vampire Diaries”
- Captain Hook and Emma Swan, “Once Upon a Time”
- Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak, “Arrow”
- Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, “Jessica Jones”
- Regina Mills and Robin Hood, “Once Upon a Time”
With a love like Delena’s, it’s impossible for fans to forget what the couple shared in the past seasons. As mentioned on the site, “heartfelt fan fiction, fan art and fan videos” of Delena continue to surface on the web.
