'TVD': top 5 'delena' moments
We count down our Top 5 Elena and Damon moments.
Thursday’s episode of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries features a return to one of our favorite events in Mystic Falls and a very special guest star.

Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Gold Medal Olympian Gabby Douglas will be popping up in Mystic Falls on Thursday’s episode as Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Caroline (Candice Accola), Tyler (Michael Trevino), Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and all of our favorites attend the annual Miss Mystic Falls pageant.

Douglas, who is a massive fan of the show, nabbed her guest spot after her medal-winning summer in London. During the Olympics, the “flying squirrel” had exchanged tweets of admiration with executive producer Julie Plec. Then in August, the cast made a video congratulating the Olympian and her fellow Fierce Five teammates on their individual and team performances.

In these recently released photos we see the cast including Dobrev, Somerhalder, Accola and Steven R. McQueen getting cozy with the Olympian and her medals on the Atlanta set of The CW show. The pictures also appear to show the Olympian  picking a side amongst the Salvatore brothers as she is seen holding an “I heart Damon” shirt.

With the Olympian appearing to be Team Delena, she will definitely love this episode as Elena and Damon appear to be getting close after the breakup of Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena in the most recent episode.

Tension between the brothers will also be at an all-time high. In the most recently released clip of the episode, fans saw the two discuss the couple’s epic breakup as Stefan tells Damon, “Let’s not pretend this isn’t the best day of our life.”

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes pictures from the episode featuring Douglas and castmembers of TVD in the gallery above.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 PM on The CW.
