Or, more specifically, the ridiculously comely co-stars "have been hooking up as of late" and are "getting hot and heavy," although it's "too soon to tell if they'll make a full reconciliation."
Somerhalder, 34, and Dobrev, 24, dated for three years before parting ways in May. While initially awkward, the split soon segued back into the friend zone. Last month, they were both on hand when the actor's dog delivered an octet of puppies, an experience they gushed about on social media.
Word of their apparently rekindled flame comes a little more than a month after the starlet stepped out with "Dancing With the Stars" hoofer Derek Hough. That budding romance wilted within weeks, ostensibly over geographic issues (he's based in Los Angeles; she shoots "The Vampire Diaries" in Atlanta).
"I didn't want to be dating one of my costars," Dobrev told Seventeen of Somerhalder in 2012. "But sometimes you can't help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long -- which I did for a really, really long time."
The pair's alter egos, Elena and Damon, were recently crowned TV's Best Couple of All Time.
