So clearly things aren't all that bad between Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev as they are obviously not constantly at each others throats or throwing daggers at one another.
Plus, if you remember, before her big announcement that she was leaving the show, Nina spoke out about her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, and on-screen love interest, by saying:
"I have an enormous amount of respect and love for him. [...] That doesn’t change just because you’re not together anymore. It doesn’t change. It shouldn’t, otherwise, why were you with them?”"
What a great, dignified and mature way to behave!
And as she wrapped up her final scenes with Ian on The Vampire Diaries, she even went on to directly compliment him by sharing a sweet behind-the-scenes image of Delena in their final moments in front of the camera.
Take a look at the dark and mysterious picture:
The best bit, however, was the caption. Prepare for your heart to melt:
"Behind The Scenes - shooting a Damon&Elena scene w Smolderhalder aka @IanSomerhalder
Well, clearly if she hated him that much she wouldn't have referred to him as "Smo(u)lderhalder" or as a member of her TVD family, would she?
It's a really loving remark and it seems that finally, she has moved on and put all her hurt behind her. It's all quite touching really!
