    NO, he did not compel her to find consuming love. He compeled her to get everything she is looking for and to forget she met him

  • guest

    The only new triangle thing was Elena being cruel to both brothers(I meant to say Damon, but I changed my mind). She wants to tell Stefan something, then stops, making him believe he is not chosen( he totally believes that). Then, when she is about to lose them both, she doesn’t miss the chance to hurt Damon with “I care about you ,so I let you go”

  • Gracie

    Nooooo :)  I’m not saying that it’s some kind of competition.  I’m not saying that just because Damon met her first, he’ll get ‘er.  No, that’s stupid.  I’m just implying that it’ll definitely help things out in the long run.  Speed along the process just a tad.  True love cannot be defined as “Who Came First”, I know that. She said herself, “I mean maybe if you and I had met–first…” HER WORDS.  Don’t know what the heck it means, BUT HER WORDS. 

  • ForWantingWhat_Iwant

    That’s the LONGEST comment I have ever seen!  (I copy and pasted it onto Microsoft word and it added up to 9 pages, in case anybody was wondering…)  But you’re amazing.  And it was an incredible comment too so double cheesy thumbs up to you!!!

    Some fans have to know: Will Elena and Damon EVER get together?
    If at any point in the life of this series, that could go on forever and ever, I think that if we didn’t go down that road eventually, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs right. But, I would never say when or how or to what end. I can only say that it’s a show predicated on a girl coming back to life and her development of love for one brother who then, because of who she is, changes the life of the other brother and that’s our show. There are roads we can go down with that in the future, for sure, so stay tuned.

    Need I say more Delena Fans

  • c_kryspie

    HOW THE FUCK IS SHE GONNA BE A VAMPIRE NEXT SEASON?!?! oh and I love Klaus & Caroline together :3

    Umm, lets leave the actors looks out of it. So what if he’s is 33? I really don’t see the point and he doesn’t have wrinkles, it’s the awful makeup that they put on him.

  • anon

    Damon compelled her to forget his love declaration and their first meeting. There really was no choice here. Elena had Jeremy compelled twice, thus taking away his choices. That has far impact cos it changed his life/lifestyle etc… As for Damon doing so much to hurt her, water under the bridge now. He spend the better part of 2.5 seasons helping her stay alive.

  • anon

    As a grown woman in my late 30′s, I know not to look for any moral/values etc from supernatural shows. There’s murder, mayhem etc etc in this show, free will/respecting decision are things that pales in comparison. Most of the characters have blood on their hands, in reality they would all be locked up. As u said, this is fiction so everything is for entertainment. If someone is looking to take away some message from this show, then it’s the wrong show for them.

    Also the writers got death-threats from Stefan/Elena fans earlier this season as well, not just Damon/Elena fans. They should know not to take these things too seriously!

    Good thing this is not real life then…

  • anon

    Damon was nowhere near the accident that caused Elena’s parents to die. I don’t get why people keep saying Damon could have caused the 1st accident!

  • anon

    Haha, I thought the same…

  • Kiki

     lol jo ich bin aus Deutschland :-)
    Klaus’ body didn’t completely burn like the Mikael did. I’m sure Klaus will return into his body sooner or later

  • Kiki

     he might be in the run for the “most stupid brother alive” trophy, too :-)

  • ihatepeople

    You just gave me a visual of what the trophy would look like. I’m picturing a boy sitting on a stool with his chin resting on his fist leaning forward on his knee frowning. Ontop of his head is a dunce cap with the words “dumbest brother ever”. LOL

  • Zara

    Yeah, but that is another reason why Elena loves Stefan more than Damon. It is a strength that Stefan has imo, since his free-will has been taken the most e.g. Klaus, even Katherine to a certain extent and it wasn’t for the greater good, so he understands that it is important to let someone have their choice but Elena wouldn’t be in that position if it wasn’t for control freaks Matt and Jeremy (Has Jeremy not learned anything? They were acting Damon-like and Matt, I am disappointed but Elena has to turn somehow.)

    If Stefan didn’t respect people’s choices, then Elena wouldn’t be alive and if he saved her, then it would be like Elena re-living the death of her parents, losing Damon (since she let him go and the fact that he would agree would anger her too) and most importantly Stefan (it would make him a hypocrite and it would be the anti-thesis of the basis of their entire relationship). Elena wouldn’t be able to live with the guilt and pain of losing anyone else; she’ll probably have an emotional breakdown from all her loss. Stefan knows how much it would kill her inside if Matt died, and this time, he wouldn’t be able to bring her back to life and make her ‘glad to be alive’ since it would be his fault why she is feelings that way, although I’d blame Matt and Jeremy just as much. If it wasn’t for them, then this wouldn’t have happened in the first place. This is a lose-lose situation. However, that car trip was to illustrate Elena’s choice, Damon meeting Elena first, Stefan respecting Elena’s choice, Elena turning into a vampire etc. It was just a catalyst.

    It was in Elena’s fate to become a vampire, and perhaps as much as I hate to say it, Delena end game because as Julie Plec said ‘Elena is no longer Elena’ and she will change for sure, but her ‘humanity’, history, past etc. will all be a part of her as well. They also wanted to show that human Elena’s choice would always be Stefan, but if Elena has to change into a different species for Delena to be endgame (heck, not even that, just Elena admitting her feelings and love to Damon and give him a shot) and become more Katherine-like, then so be it; it only shows that it is quite contrived. And if Elena is more different, then she isn’t the woman Stefan or Damon fell in love with, so what’s the point? Sure, Damon would take her with open arms if she is willing to be with him, but how much of it would really be the original Elena? Elena is a doppelganger and they might transition in a different, more extreme way like Katherine did as she changed drastically, but as it has been shown throughout the show, Elena’s ‘humanity’ will pull through and she will feel regret, guilt and remorse so hopefully she doesn’t change too much because it won’t be the same Elena we shipped either Stefan and/Damon with. Elena will no longer be Damon’s ‘humanity’, but Stefan will always be her ‘home’.

    It is much easier to save the person you love more than the person who is a good friend of the loved person imo.

  • ihatepeople

    I doubt it will really matter. I mean the emotions you have as a human are magnified as a vamp. She’s made her mind up about who she wants. Turning is only going to increase those feelings. At most finding out she met Damon first might confuse her and make her feel bad but she is so stubborn in her beliefs that it still won’t change anything.

  • Alexa

    Well I feel sad i can see no end to Stelena being shoved down our throats and tey will lead us around on our noses to keep us watching and the ratings up, I just hope that now that they know how many fans want Delena they dont go ahead and write terrible material for Damon (Ian) or god forbidd have him less in the show in hopes we all come around to theyre point, i cant see that happening for me am still frustrated and even send e-mail to CW something I have never done it is not me but said it before dont like to be made a fool of

  • ihatepeople

    Doubtful they would reduce Damon’s screen time because that would seriously create a decline in viewership seeing as how Ian has a lot of fans. Besides they’ll need to abuse his character more so they can KEEP trying to prove SE is so magical. You know “shove it down our throats” as you said at Damon’s expense of course. Same plan different season.

  • Gracie

    Are you or are you not for Damon and Elena?  I mean, really.  Where do you stand?

  • ihatepeople

    Always have been for DE. That’s what had me hooked this season and brought me to this fan site. However, I’m exhausted with the road to nowhere we’ve been lead down. I seriously don’t think it will happen and from what the writers have said it was never meant to. Ultimately at this point I want Damon to be happy and I don’t want him used for the purpose of proving SE. His character has come a long way.

  • guest

    OK,I finally had a chance to sit down and watch last night. So sad about Elena being OK to let Damon die alone and not even giving him a little bit of love. 

    Hopefully that’ll send Damon off on a little journey of his own – maybe getting his bad on in some fabulous city far and away from Mystic Falls. The writers have turned him into a cross between an overprotective father-figure and that annoyingly clingy guy that you never want to date. Bring back a little touch of the bad boy, I say. Let Elena get a taste of what life’s like without him. Vampire or not, I think she’ll come to her senses. But not before the writers milk it for all it’s worth. The tension between those two is what drives this show and they’re not going to give that up too soon.

  • jade

    elena is an idiot, omg she should have totally chose damon.
    i cried like a baby watching this, klaus dead, rick dead, elena a vampire, tyler is klaus, i’m just mind blown.

  • GermanTVDfan

     really good job! Thank you for that, I enjoyed it very much!

  • guest

    I think it was a mistake the way the scene was written or how it was translated on the screen. It would make more sense if Stefan broke Elena’s seatbelt to give her a chance. She could still die,floating beautifully toward the surface…

  • http://mylikes.com/carolinedeluna Caroline De Luna

    i did that too…

  • Beverly Davis

    Yea I think us Delena Fans were just led on to keep us watching! I think there are more Delena fans than Stelena. I can honestly say that I don’t think I am alone in saying that if Damon and Elena aren’t together soon, then I will no longer be tuning in! The Stelena fans had their two seasons, so we Delena fans should have our two seasons! And I also think that if Delena does not happen, the ratings are going to drop! Just keep fighting for Delena and I think we will get it, if you know what I mean.

  • Beverly Davis

    I totally agree that they ruined it! This might have started out being all about Stefan and Elena, but, Ian took Damon’s character and made it all about Damon and Elena! Damon and Elena are now the main characters, so therefore they should be together, and Ian’s name should now be second in credits instead of third! I don’t understand how anyone can’t see that Damon and Elena are more suited for each other. Damon’s love for Elena is stronger than Stefans, and Damon has saved her more, put his life in danger more, and been there for her more! There are some that say Damon is more evil, but those people have not watched the same Vampire Diaries as I, because Stefan was worse! So the writers need to get this right, and put Damon and Elena together!

  • Kiki

     There are different fans with different feelings. You obviously like Damon and Elena together but that doesn’t mean it needs to happen. There are Stefan&Elena fans, too. The writers didn’t ruin anything. They are the ones who created the show and they obviously have done a great job otherwise the show wouldn’t be such a big success. If they’d done what some hysterical fans wanted to see the show wouldn’t be as good. So calm down and enjoy the show or go and write your Delena story and see if you can do a better job than Julie Plec

  • Kiki

     hm this post was supposed to be a reply to one that seems to be deleted now. So no offence to all the other Delena-fans.. it was ment for one particular

  • Beverly Davis

    I am sorry if I hit a nerve, but the truth is the truth! Check out your polls to see how many fans there are for each!

  • Whitekl

    If only they had put Meredith from the books into the series she could be with Damon since Alaric is now dead. I just wish they would have kept to the books more at least with elenas hair color and eye color. The only two the cow kept to a perfect description was steffin and Damon which is very good. Love the story and love Elena and Stefan together… But she will always be Damon’s dark princess

  • Whitekl

    If you read the books you would understand where the writers are coming from… They don’t just make up everything that they feel L.J. Smith created these characters and the cw went off of her books so if you really wanted to know things read the books not the ones the cw writes but L.J. Smith ones

  • Whitekl

    If bonnie hadn’t done what she did Alaric would have killed Klause and the show would have been over because everyone was descended from his bloodline and if Elena hadnt died Alaric would still be trying to murder all the originals and everyone would think they were descended from a different blood line so ultimately Bonnie made the best decision she could to save her friends and make for a juicy twist
