     Thank you Raven :-)!
    I am pretty sure Elena loves Damon for good and very passionately so. She always did!

    From the new trailer for next episode when Damon says to her:”I wanna throw you back in my bed and never let you leave” and Elena saying, daring him at the same time “the do it!” This is more than epic love people, this is deep, passionate, undying love!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jenay Carriere

    I really like your comment maybe next time break it up a bit.

  • Shannon

    Omg, that woulda killed me if it was.

  • nightmagic

    i loved everything about this ep !!! the flashbacks however for once i didnt like Lexie as much nor Caroline but im glad Stefan apologized to Damon and told caroline he thinks Damon loves Elena as much as he does .love all the cute Delena scenes !!!!!!

  • nightmagic

     im choosing to have faith in julie and what she said at .but i loved everything you said and agree

  • Holly_kirsten

    I think that there is going to be a lot more to this Sire bond than most people think.  Because all we know about them are based on WOLF sire bonds.  Could it possibly be that a VAMPIRE sire bond could affect her feelings as well?  We already know there is one difference between the two bonds (wolfs can break theirs by turning till they don’t feel gratatude anymore and there is no way to break a vampire bond that we know of) Yes Damon could tell her to move on but in 20 years couldn’t he come back and tell her to be with him again and she would have to.  If the bond has no affects on her feelings why does he have to “order” those feelings away for the bond to be broken? Isn’t that affecting how she feels?

  • Nelly

    I think Elena seems to be rather brainwashed than freed. I can accept that you have tried to explain into every little moment and decision that she never been herself really.
    But if you really think that than you have to see now that this behaviour isn’t normal.

    Didn’t I send you the link last week? I have twitter. Its the same name. But you can also Skypechat with me, if you have Skype. Also here the same name. Just chose which method you prefer and send me “Anfrage”.
    Yeah all this speculation and in the end it might be something completely different. LOLI’m also pondering ab Tyler, is he a descendant of the Original werewolves that were slaughtered by Mikael? How are they planning to take Klaus down, they neither have a witch for it nor the ultimate weapon used by Alaric. I’m very impatient already and hope it is friday soon. But Friday will be very sad…”There will be mass casualties including someone we have known since season 1″

  • shila1307

    You know Caroline, she’s my girl, but even I found her very annoying in the last two episodes. And I didn’t like Miss Lexi in the flashback either.
    And the Shane/Silas/sacrifice/number 12 and 5 stuff is most interesting. It gives me the collywobbles. Now I have one dream and that would be for the case that Shane is not Silas (in 5%), bc I am 95% positive that he is Silas. It would be cool if they casted RALPH FIENNES AS SILAS (you know the actor who played Voldemort in Harry Potter). Well a girl can dream… :)

  • shila1307

    One would think that Bonnie prefers the aneurysm on all of them like she used to do. Isn’t it? And it would have been more effective, but it looked like she was struggling with her strength and is still weak :)
    I think I watched the episode 3 times and two times in double feature with episode 7.

  • shila1307

    But to lock him up they need a witch first. Abby locked and dessicated Mikael and you remember season 3 when they did the same magic on Klaus through Bonnie.

  • Kiki

     yep that’s what I thought. I’m sure the wolfsirebond is different from the vampire sirebond. It would be boring if you can break it easily. I’m sure there will be a lot of witchy spells and stuff like that.
    And since the show is about a triangle I’m sure the vampiresirebond effects feelings, too. That’s in my opinion the only way to bring the triangle back to Stelena one day and we all know this will happen during the next 2,5 seasons

  • BlackAngel

    yes. Damon accepts Elena: vampire or human. his love and acceptance of her is unconditional. can’t say the same about Stephan. he wants to fix her and make her back into the girl he loves. 

  • Kiki

     I’m not sure how much Tyler knows about Klaus and the rules to kill him. Maybe he thinks 12 hybrids are enought to take him down. But for sure he knows that he will die if he kills Klaus so I’m sure he’s not going to kill him.

  • ihatepeople

    Which is funny don’t you think since he was all about her choices to the point he allowed her to drown. Now her choices and behavior is wrong because they don’t go with what Stefan thinks she should be doing? Can you say true colors?

  • BlackAngel

    he didn’t order her, he pleaded with her. if the sire bond thing is legit (still skeptical) then she agreed so as to make him happy. she does feel guilt about Stephan. i’m hoping the guilt eventually fades though. DELENA rocks!

  • BlackAngel

    then again, if the sire bond thing is legit (still skeptical) she told caroline not to tell because damon told her he shouldn’t be told…yet. bsides, it’s none of Caroline’s business. she should stay out of their affairs and mind hers (which by the way, need her minding a lot ryt now).

  • BlackAngel

    when Elena drank out of the blood bag and Damon was so disappointed, it was heart wrenching. such a big contrast from his happy morning face. i felt like he needed a hug.

  • BlackAngel

    Damon is the 1 who truly loves Elena (unchanging, unwavering love and acceptance). he accepts and loves her as a person and vampire. Stephan needs to fix her. 
    To break the sire bond, Damon has to break up with Elena, push her away and leave her. How the heck! does Stephan figure that as being fair?! it’ll hurt her, it’ll hurt his brother and the only 1 that’ll be satisfied is him. selfish much! 

  • BlackAngel

    because Damon is a dynamic character (you start with this hardhearted bad ass then move to …) but Stephan is quite static (righteous vampire who seeks redemption and doesn’t like to feed on human blood). sure his character goes back and forth (good and evil) but it always sticks to that theme (he’s evil then he wants redemption). doesn’t pike any real gist his way. 

  • BlackAngel

    the sire bond is not what magnifies the emotions. it plays no part in the way a person feels. it’s their turning into a vampire that magnifies the emotions. nevertheless, if her emotions were magnified, her feelings for stephan must also have been magnified but somehow, more for damon than stephan. probably because she had stronger feelings for damon in the first place but wouldn’t admit to it

  • Jill Hansen

    My only complaint is, stop with the endless Stephan and Caroline chatter while I am trying to watch Delena scenes!

  • Lucy237

    sorry folks – don’t like the can’t think for myself Elena or the too nice guy Damon.

  • Jayne

    Amazing episode, loved it.  This season has exceeded all the other seasons, its sexier, its hotter, its got more……its just got better & better 

  • Lynettemaxwell

    Please can we have some more of Damon & Elena, let us enjoy them! I really hope we don’t have Damon making a heart breaking decision just before the 5 week hiatus !!

  • Cherrie

    And your point is?? 

  • DontNeedAUsername

    Yeah lol

  • DontNeedAUsername

    That’s the POINT of sarcasm.

  • DontNeedAUsername

    Exactly :)

  • DontNeedAUsername

    True but that’s the thing he didn’t order her he asked her not to. Which still makes the sire bond thing sound dumb. I’m sure she wants Damon happy either way so that’s heightened. She feels guilt indeed so idk why some people on here say she wasn’t like she’s evil or something lol. I’m hoping he can insure her and still keep her.

  • DontNeedAUsername

    It’s been made

  • DontNeedAUsername

    True but he didn’t ask he pleaded and either way Elena wouldn’t tell Caroline simply cause of her big mouth. It seems like tbh. This whole site thing is dumb to me cause f the things they “link” Elena being sired too. Elena already felt the same way about ya know what I mean?

  • debz clarke

    caroline is turning into a right snitch and i dont think i like her anymore….even after hugging she snides to stefan about damon.  . episode was awesome tho.  loving every min.   bit scared about whose going to die in mid season finale tho….  hope its caroline… boooo

  • 8Dana8

     Stelena wishes… Haha.

  • ihatepeople

    Agreed. Why would the witch say human feelings were required before the person turned in order to be sired and people think that it was the siring that created the feelings. That doesn’t even make sense.

  • Ktingen


  • Kristendale26

    you’re happiness will be short lived im sure

  • Bayliff91

    are you 12 ? lol

  • Kaoticx

    Well sorry hun, but she is sired to him… no matter what you may think you know.
