    “I guees she & Elena are more alike than we realize”. LOL. How true. I think Katherine didn’t like that Damon was like a love sick puppy with her. She seemed to be more interested when he wouldn’t fall for her b.s. anymore. He was more challenging then. Stefan presented more of a challenge to her. I think she loved him more because he wanted her less. Elena…idk I guess she is just young and inexperienced.

     I know you’re a Stefan/Elena fan at least I think you are from what I’ve read from your posts. I had been a die hard Stefan/Elena fan since day one, that’s what made me fall in love with the show. But the way they have written the characters this season, they have destroyed that relationship which I know they had to do for the Damon thing to move forward yada, yada, yada. But in the process, they have made Elena a very unlikeable character. At least for me they have. I am first and foremost a Stefan fan and I want him to be happy. If they could somehow get back to the kind of love they had before & him be happy great, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. But you are right about one thing, that kind of love never dies. Stefan told Elena he would always love her and he will.

    I just don’t want to see them have him destroyed, holed up in his room again, writing in his journal. Yes, he will be devastated about losing Elena to Damon which I am not looking forward to seeing. Truthfully I’m wondering how the hell they are going to try to pull that off with them living in the same house. I think that one of them will have to move out & maybe move into Ric’s apartment? Can you imagine how awkward it will be passing Elena coming & going in the night! Honestly I don’t think Elena is good enough for Damon or Stefan. Like ihatepeople said even Paul is dying to see Stefan’s character taken in a new direction & have a new love interest.  

    Here’s an interview/article that Paul gave that I thought you should check out & see what he would like for Stefan’s character.

  • wednesday75

     Yeah, but now I have flashes of the Memory Lane episode where Katherine was putting those images in his dream of Damon & Elena together. Ugh! The pain on Stefan’s face! I’m so not looking forward to seeing this. Yes he will try to be strong, but it’s till going to crush him. She is the love of his life. I don’t care what people say, Katherine was the love of Damon’s life. He loved her for 145 years. In past interviews that Ian gave, he always talked about Damon being in love with two different women. I hope Paul’s persistence pays off & we get to see Stefan have a new love interest.

  • wednesday75

    My dad came up with that exact theory! Tyler & Jeremy are going to make it through to next season. At least that’s what I’ve read from several articles. It’s Caroline I’m worried about. She is my favorite female character! I can’t imagine the show without her. I honestly don’t think I would want to watch it anymore.=(

  • wednesday75

     Yeah, she told him he was a bore when he was sweet & polite! Remember when the 3 of them were trapped in the room together in the Masquerade episode. I loved that scene.  Katherine: The 3 of us together just like old times:”The brother who loved me too much & the brother who didn’t love me enough” Damon: And the evil slut vampire who only loved her self!” I would love to see Stefan give in to Katherine like that “dream” in the cave. That scene was way too short!

  • ihatepeople

    I think the pain then in that episode was partly due to the suddeness of seeing them together even if it was Katherine putting the dream in his head. She used an underlying fear she knew he had to mess with him and it worked. This time I think it will be a little different even though it’s actually real and not a dream simply because he has seen it coming. He also feels partly to blame because he pushed them together when he left and kept pushing her away. In an odd way I think he has prepared himself for it. Plus the fact that now he and Damon are on the same side as brothers. As hurtful as it is for him I think he can deal with it better now. Definitely time to put him with someone else. Another vamp or a witch even and not one of our core people either. Someone new.

  • ihatepeople

    Absolutely. I think of that line all the time. It’s true too. I like Stefan better with Katherine because he doesn’t give in to her crap and SHE is the one trying to win him over which is unlike the selfish vamp she is suppose to be.

  • ihatepeople

    Hmmm…I don’t get the impression Caroline is going anywhere unless she dies during some fight between Tyler and Klaus over her. I don’t think she has a target on her back. I think it’s Matt.

  • ihatepeople

    It was actually nice to see the writers reuse Jer’s ghost whisperer abilities again. It seemed like that skill fell by the way side.

  • ihatepeople

    He was very take charge about it. Maybe he’ll take over for Ric as the vamp slayer.

  • ihatepeople

    What a beautifully put comment.

  • ihatepeople

    There’s always Elena’s house they could go to. LOL.

  • ihatepeople

    How about option 3 and just give us more episodes? ;)

  • wednesday75

    You’re right. When I saw his interaction with Katherine in The Return, I was sold! I love how he always seems to humor her and seems to be amused by her even though he still wanted to kill her at the same time. They’ve come a long way since last season. He still doesn’t trust her, but at least he can be in the same room with her & not want to kill her. You knew back in Memory Lane, he still cared about her when he hesitated to kill her at first. But then of course she had to go & ruin it when she threatened Elena. As much as I would love to see Katherine at the end of this season, I don’t want them to bring her in just to kill her off. That would piss me off royally! If she shows up to take off with Stefan, that would be different. I’d be a happy camper.

  • wednesday75

    Yeah, I think he has been preparing himself as well. When he told her he would always love her, I think that was his way of letting her go even though he told her to figure out her feelings for Damon. I’m curious to see this week’s episode because Julie said that Elena wasn’t going to keep anything from Stefan. That will be one interesting conversation. “The only reason I didn’t sleep with Damon was because Jeremy interrupted us, but I still don’t know how I feel about him!” Kick her to the curb guys! Run don’t walk!

  • wednesday75

    I know alot of people hated the Ghost World episode, but it was one of my favorites because it brought back 2 of my favorite characters, Lexi & Anna!. Loved both of them & missed them. And Paul did some of his best acting going all Jekyll & Hyde on Lexi & Elena!. I also really liked Mason’s interaction with Damon. Could have done without Vicki because I was never a fan. But it was nice to see Rose this time around because I loved her as well.

  • wednesday75

    I hope it’s not her, it kinda worries me when the synopsis says that Caroline & Tyler are forced to make a life changing decision. I think it might be Matt, Ric or Bonnie. As much as I love the 3 of them, I could handle loosing them because honestly they haven’t been using the characters to their fullest potential. Especially Bonnie. Kat is probably begging them to put Bonnie out of her misery so she can move on to better things!

  • wednesday75

    I thought the same thing, but that would be so tacky! That would make her look like a total tramp!

  • wednesday75

    That would be awesome!

  • TVD

    That was like, a gazillion years ago? Everyone’s forgiven him for that, even Jeremy.  Nobody cares anymore because he’s well and alive now.  Point is, Damon has changed, he perfectly deserves Elena as much as Stefan does and we (delena fans) love him.  

  • WOWY_INDEED

    Couldn’t have said it better;) She literally needs help.

  • Jenna

    The present day Stefan would be on the same page with Damon on the Tyler issue… ‘collateral damage’!!!

  • Jenna

    Out of her misery, lol!!! Right, don’t blame her either!
    BTW, why didn’t Tyler go spend the night in his own house? What, was he worried Klaus would know he’s back? He’s gonna find out sooner or later… more like sooner!!!

  • Jenna

    As sick as it sounds I loved Jeremy in that episode beheading that hybrid… would be so awesome if he became the “new” slayer!!!

  • Jenna

    Yeah, she loves them both… but if she had to CHOOSE she would choose Stefan. The reason she said to Damon that it was always Stefan is partly because it was true and secondly because she was trying to cause havoc, she KNEW that would send Damon off the deep end. He was so volatile in that whole episode knowing Katherine was around and at the end he was so mad at her and dismissive but still couldn’t deny his love for her, gave in and they had that passionate moment only to find out it meant nothing to her… his whole world came crashing down. Then cut to Elena’s room , and her telling him ‘it’s always going to be Stefan’… while he is drunk mind you… yeah, it was inevitable the guy was going to snap!!!

  • wednesday75

     Never mind! I just sent you a message on forums to tell you to read these comments & you already beat me to it! LOL! As much as I love Kat she can be cruel at times. But she has proven to Damon that she does love him by saving his life twice now. That should give him a little comfort. But I suppose you’re right if she had to choose it would probably be Stefan. I did like the end of the Homecoming episode when she told Stefan she was trying to save him because she liked the old him better. I thought that was sweet, even if he didn’t believe her. Although he should considering she just blew her chance to be rid of Klaus! That spoke volumes!

  • wednesday75

     I know right, that was kind of odd. I can’t wait for that dance scene! When Tyler & Caroline are dancing & Klaus tries to come up & get her to dance with him. Tyler is going to pretend that he is still bound to Klaus & then toward the last episode something is going to happen I think! He’s not going to let Klaus know what happened. Don’t you know it’s going to kill him to watch Caroline go dance with Klaus if she says yes.

  • wednesday75

     I did too! He so reminded me of Dean!

  • wednesday75

     Well yeah! Plus he’s a major danger to them! He’s the reason Damon almost died and Caroline! But he’s safe for next season so we don’t have to worry.

  • Guest

    We often talk about triangles and sometimes it really is tiring that often leads to shipper wars. What would it be if its rectangles or squares? TVD would then be a better place, esp for Julie Plec. 

  • Iansfan

     :) … it´s easy to talk about somebody you are in love with – even if he´s a fictional character on a TV show…

  • Iwka_baletnica

    Am i the only one who wants Damon to leave MF? Like Stefan did this season? I love Delena, but after everything that happened i don’t think Elena choosing Damon is a good thing, not now at least. She’s so afraid being with him, they both have to grow up a little. It will be too soon and nothing good will come out of it.. First she would HAVE to get over Stefan to be with anyone else and have a fair chance for it to work out (no insecurities that maybe you’re just a testing drive etc..). And i really don’t want DE to be together for few episodes and went back to hate and frustration again. That would be just poor storytelling:(! So please let her be with Stef, if that fresh start won’t work out, because she will be missing her friend and realize that her feelings for him might be bigger than she imagined before, then we can give a shot for Delena. We’ve been waiting so long for it to happen, but i’m ready to wait some more if that will mean they will have a fair chance, not only love scraps. I can be very patient, if knowing it will pay off:D What do you think?

  • ihatepeople

    I know right? I’m a sucker for blood and guts on shows like these. He seemed so grown up when he decapitated “Tony the headless hybrid”.

  • Cassie

    That’s technically what I was saying but Forwood has also build that foundation as well. Elena’s just a little more complicated then Caroline.

  • ihatepeople

    In no way do I want Damon to leave MF. I also don’t want him to be crushed by Elena over and over again either. Given her back and forth behavior I’m concerned that she won’t just drop him the second Stefan snaps his fingers. I don’t feel she’ll choose Damon anyway. As shown in this ep she always is looking for an excuse to not be with him because she wants Stefan. At this point Stefan is still her number one choice and if they’re not together it will be because Stefan doesn’t allow it.

  • nrid11

    I just want Elena to choose Stefan so that Damon can go back to his season1 lifestyle. But she’s is in love with both of them so probably she’ll choose to be single at the moment.

  • VDfan

    I believe blue could have a point. Why would Elena run away when Kol was beating Damon up in Scary Mary’s house? Kol just said he could not hurt her, and then she tries to run? Elena would stay and safe Damon! Who always run away when things get bad? Katherine :)

  • Guest
  • nrid11

    NICE idea. Actually I want the same thing. I think DE is not ready to go for a relationship right at the moment. Elena needs some more time to figure that out. If Damon is out of MF or in some major trouble just like Stefan was this season she will be able to realize her true feelings for him. Which will make their bond/connection stronger. And may be in the series finale she will finally choose Damon!

  • Kiki

     But when and where did Kathrine take Elena’s place?

  • TeamStelena!

    i was soo disappointed at elena for making out with demon in the last episode..i love demon he is HOT! no dought! but i jst don’t like the delena couple thing..stefan and elena are so great together! stefan let elena make her own decision, makes her strong, and loves her very much! i know elena have feelings for demon and he do too but she should know that stefan will always be better for her! i knw they are not back 2gether in this season yet, but i think she still cheated on him..i knw stefan been off this season because of  ANNOYING klaus! but she shouldn’t made out with demon if she still love stefan…while stefan was being all bad..he never messed around with other females…

  • Brandilynn1976

    I am sorry people but I have also watched since the very first episode. Just never felt the connection with Elena & Stephan. I always felt more with Elena & Damon. There was an incredible amount of under played, unnoticed gestures of caring between them Damon & Elena. Not to mention, Damon was the better one even before becoming vampire. Did you not catch any of the flashbacks? Damons feelings for Elena are just as pure as Stehans if not more. I would be annoyed if she chooses to be with Stephan, he is more like a friend/brother type. The passion and unspoken connection with Damon is what we were all taught love meant. And no she would not be a slutt if she loved or made love to two brothers at different times. I know more people that have done that in real life and married a brother! Give me a break I mean we are talking about a vampire television show! LOL

  • VDfan

    She could have taken her place after Elena went out the door, because she looks at Stefan like she is thinking “is this gonna work?” and he just answers “be safe”. Would stefan really let Elena leave alone with Damon, when he saw that Klaus was able to compell him? Would he take that chance? I don’t think so.. So maybe Elena never left Mystic Falls.. who knows :)

  • Zimsistress

    im sorry but Rose hit the nail in the coffin, when she described the brothers individual relationships with elena. Stefan does babysit her and he has never challenged her ever. Where as Damon has never been afraid to say no to her. That says a lot. So to whoever is calling Rose a bitch probably needs to go back and  re watch season 1 and 2 to see what the rest of us capable thinking homo-sapiens are seeing.

    That’s not true it’s not the driving theme.There are alot of moments such as when Damon is in her bedroom with her or they are on her front porch, at his house in front of the fireplace.There are alot of moments between those to that are not meant to be sexual in nature.Damon comforts her and tries to bring Stefan home to her.Damon just wants her to remember how she feels about him.Damon and Elena share more moments together then her and Stefan and not all of them are sexual tension.As a matter of fact the scene where they are training is playful and meant to be taken as such.When Damon is laying in the bed dying Elena kisses him of her own volition you cant say that sex was the driving theme.

  • Jansp3

    Damon deserved his time with Elena. He’s been there for her & always does what needs to be done to protect her…no matter what! Love Stefan but adore Damon!
