    In the books she sleeps with Damon? What was Stefan’s reaction to that one?  Having Elena even sleep with Damon and go back to Stefan AND Stefan takes her back is terrible writing. Wonder if LJ Smith was drinking when she wrote that part. It is no wonder her books did not take off back in the 90′s.

    Elena was much different in the books. She had a terrible personality. Viewers would not have related to the book Elena. Didn’t Damon love both Bonnie and Elena in the books?

  • Deb

    She was fired from writing her own books?  From what I understand, once the television started, she kept writing the books.  She hadn’t written them since they first came out in the 90′s.  Expanding the story was something to tie into the tv show. Though, the book Elena did not change to the tv one.

  • Deb

    Same thing if Stefan dies, they would want Elena with Damon. Stefan was out of the picture in Season 3. Damon made his move. The only way Damon will ever get Elena is if Stefan dies. Even then, Elena will love Stefan in death.

     THANK YOU! RIGHT TO THE POINT! So nice to know there are still rational people))) So true!

  • Deb

    Could be, but Caroline turned and still loved Matt. She kept her human qualities. She had to let Matt go because he was human and she could not control her blood urges. she should have been honest with Matt. Maybe letting Matt in earlier would have helped their relationship. Maybe not. I am sure Matt is kicking himself for not accepting Caroline when he found out. Tyler made sense because they are one of a kind now – supernatural creatures. Elena’s love is not going to change just because she is now turned. Finn turned Sage and they remained in love for 900 years. Lexie and her man stayed in love after he turned. He went after Damon for killing Lexie. Why would Elena’s love change?  If anything he will go through the same natural changes of any woman as a relationship grows. The question is how wil lthe brothes feel about Elena once she turns? They loved her humanity. Will their feelings change?

    Elena is going to change as she begins to understand her new physical strengths. Even Caroline changed, She is still insecure, but she is also self assured and stands up for herself. Elena hopefully will do the same. She will not need to be rescued and will be able to take care of herself and her friends. What does this mean for her relationship with Bonnie?  Bonnie hates anything to do with vampires. It took her a long time to accept Caroline’s transformation. I am sure Bonnie will have a spell to prevent Elena’s transformation.

    Stefan can only take so much. He loves Elena, but wants her happy. he will always wonder if Elena wants Damon. She can no longer fully convince him that he is the one. Stefan has lived.  Elena has not. I think he will allow her to live and step away from her. I am sure if that happens, they will meet up again.  I read that they are going to allow Stefan and Elena to be happy for a while in Season 4. I hope so. They have spent a long time apart. It is time they both experience some fun.

    Damon hopefully gets a new love interest not in the group. Someone his age. He is supposed to be 24 on the show. Not even if you squint does Ian look 24.

  • Deb

    Where is Matt going to go? Matt is alive and well. Hopefully, he finds him a nurse while in the hospital. Since everyone has hooked up with a supernatural being, Matt wil probably find himself one too.

  • Deb

    I cannot see Elena sporting Damon all over Mystic Falls. He is not a dater and he is one that just wants to roll around in bed and sit at the bar at the Grill all night. Canont see Elena taking Damon to school functions or double dates. He is charming, but her friends see right through him. At least Stefan is willing to go to hgh school for the 100th time to be with her.  What is Damon going to do? Compel the principal to become the new history teacher? Especially since he has zero credentials to do so. Elena’s friends and Jeremy do not like Damon. They also do not trust Damon. The writers bat around the relationship, but Damon is the type of guy you have nightly booty calls.

    He is not someone you bring home to mother. Everyone talks about their passion. What passion? They argue, Damon does stupid things, Elena frowns at him, he does something else stupid. Stefan and Elena are all loves, hugs, kisses, and sweet moments. Their passion is the love they share and fight for all the time. Her friends like Stefan, they trust Stefan.

    Elena would end up trying to convince everyone to like Damon or give him a chance. he has tried to kill, manipulate, threaten, compel, and feed off her friends since he showed up. None of them have forgotten. Elena has seen both sides of Damon. She still chose Stefan. When she said, I love him, Damon. It reminded me of Stefan telling Damon the same thing in the woods and at the house.  Damon has heard both confess their love for the other AND he still chases after her because it is what he wants. He has zero respect for Stefan and Elena’s relationship..

    When I read “Damon deserves Elena” “they belong together” I wonder if we are watching the same show.

    I tihnk it was Elena’s plan to turn into a vampire when all of the trouble occured. She had ample opportunity to unbuckle herself and swim to the top. Stefan tore the door off. it was wide open for her. She sat back and died. Too easy. Who doesn’t think that Stefan gave Matt some blood when they got to the top? He is alive and well.  I would not be surprised if she made a deal with Meredith to make sure vampire blood was in her system. She knew killing herself and Alaric would keep her friends safe.

    Damon choses his own heartbreak. He pursued his brother’s girl. What did he thinkg was going to happen. Even when Stefan was gone, Elena never stopped saying how much she loved Stefan. Why did he think his charms would override their love?  He never respected their love. He gets the heartbreak because of his decisions.

  • Deb

    I don’t understand why Elena would go dark?  Will she have a blood lust? Caroline did not go dark. Having Elena go dark is too much of a convenient story line. She is too smart to go dark. She has Caroline, Tyler, Damon, and Stefan to help her.  She also has Bonnie’s spells to ease the transition.

  • Deb

    Are they supposed to have Elena and Damon hook up to please some fans?  Where would that go? Elena has to finish high school and take care of Jeremy.  All with Damon doing what? Helping? Not his style. Plus, her friends and Jeremy do not like nor trust Damon.  Cannot see to many school dances, prom, or double dating with Damon and her friends.

  • Deb

    We need Kat to show up and shake things up. In the books Kat put a spell on Elena to forget Stefan. She turned to Damon. Though if they did this on the show, I doubt if Damon would take advantage of the situation. He would want Elena without magic. Though, he is Damon and probably would.

  • Deb

    Bonnie will probably pop up with a spell or two to help out the transition.

  • Deb

    There has to be more than meeting someone first. She met him, they had a two minute talk, end of story. Not an epic meeting for Elena. She met Stefan and was hooked. She said if she met him first, things MIGHT be different. She would have had to get to know him and then fall in love. Did not happen. She was just breaking up with Matt and not thinking about another relatinshoip.

  • Deb

    Katherine did not NEED the Salvatores. She wanted them both for her own selfish sexual pleasure. She did give a rat’s behind about Damon.  When she saw them in the road dead, she never even looked at Damon. She went over to Stefan, kissed him, and told him they would be together again.  She followed Stefan around for centuries. she never looked Damon up.

  • Deb

    You are on target.  I don’t know why people think that there will be some hidden agenda when she wakes up. She did not want Damon. She has told him on at least two occasions when he has asked for the truth. She has never wavered on her feelings for Stefan.

  • Deb

    Viewers need to stop thinking of the show as some type of paring of couples and given them off the wall name pairings. The fans are just fans who love a show. I don’t get the whole “shippers “thing. I am a grown ass woman who just loves to be entertained every Thurs by Vampire Diaries, Greys Anatomy, etc.

  • Deb

    No, I did not hear or see that.  She said she met hm and instantly fell in love. She chased after Stefan like a puppy even when he tried to pull away. Elena has seen Damon’s bad and good side, but remains in love with Stefan. Damon is a irrational persona and everything he does is amplified. Elena likes Damon’s good side which is a rare citing. She is always pushing and pulling Damon to be good. Elena has returned Damon’s kiss twice. I think “Every time they kiss” is little extreme. They may have chemistry, but the true passion lies in a love that endures. Stefan and Elena’s love has endured. She fights for Stefan, and risks everything to save him. She has entered a house full of vampires, she has hid in a closet, when has she done this for Damon?  Elena has woken up and realized that she was stringing Damon along and did not love him. Sometimes when I read these comments, I wonder if we watch the same show. I feel like some people write what they want to see and not what actually happened. When did Elena compare her relationship to Stefan to Matt?  she did equate her relationship to Damon to Matt and said that she was stringing him along and had to let him go.

    Stefan is not like Matt. She is in love with Stefan. she was never in love with Matt. She met Damon on a dark road. Spoke to him for two minutes. No sparks. Just a brief conversation where his ego told her what she wanted him a man (him).  He did not know her. He described himself adn if she was Katherine it would have enticed her. She is not Katherine. Did you miss thepart when she said to Damon, I love him (Stefan)? Kind of puts a hole in the “explosion of true love” statement above.

  • Deb

    Lalita, I agree with you. Even when Damon was dying Elena chose Stefan. She watched Damon dying last season and comforted him. She gave him the kiss because it was what she knew he wanted. Also, Stefan was not there. When Katherine caught her she jumped. First thing she asked, “where’s Stefan? if Stefan was there she would not have done it. she would have gone to Stefan.

  • jb142

    OMG! I frkn cried when I watched that scene where Damon first told Elena that he loved her! That’s the thing I really love about Damon, he always wants what he thinks is best for Elena. He made her forget because he felt that he didn’t deserve her, so he was basically saying, “Elena, I could treat you right, but my brother could treat you better.”
    And I know he told her again that he loved her and he didn’t make her forget, but I don’t think Elena really truly knows how much he loves her. Hopefully she realizes that in season 4.. All I want is for Damon to actually be with Elena even if its only for a few episodes. She can go back to Stefan if she realizes that she absolutely loves him more, but she’ll never know unless she actually tries being with Damon.

    I just think that somebody who loves another person as much as Damon loves Elena, should get a chance at being with that person they love

    And Stefan already had his time with Elena, so now it’s Damon’s turn :P

  • Andy Ass

    Lol, its going to be sooooooo much fun when Delena happens.
    Just remember over 60% want Delena.
    You really think the writers will go against those 60% in the end?
    Come on, surely you guys have more sense than that.

  • Rosemarieetaylor

    Dont say your done with the show! Yeah, I’m pretty pissed too that the producers are manipulating us with “Oh yeah! Did we tell you Delena has a chance?!” trick. I get tired of it ALL THE TIME, but I still have faith in the show. Baby steps, it takes baby steps for a couple like Delena to happen. The more we wait, the more beautiful and amazing it will be. If I want Damon and Elena to be together, then I want  Elena to be ready to accept the fact she truely does love him without Stefan clouding her judgment; WITHOUT ANYONE clouding her judgment. It takes someone to screw up a relationship that Damon and Elena has created and I’ll be damned if I see the end of the series be with Stefan and Elena. Delena is ENDGAME and I dont give a shit on what our stelena fans are saying they can jump off a cliff cause I know we dont need them. Xo have faith and season 4 will be Damon’s time to shine, its HIS TURN TO HAVE WHAT HE WANTS

  • Rheastrid

    i punched the pillow and screamed at my laptop’s screen:))) not to mention, i cried as if one of my dogs died.. and believe me, i LOVE my dogs a lot.

    but i know that at some point damon will have elena. it has to happen.

  • F Silva

    If Damon gets his heart broken again in season 4 by Elena, I will be done with this show by then!!!! Sorry.

  • Delena Always<3

    My thoughts on all of this is that Elena is good for Damon and thats who she should be with.. idk if everyone forgot or if maybe it just doesnt matter but Kathrine is still alive and she is who Stefan use to love he was never compelled to love her it was all real and I think he could be the better person for her they pushed in the past how Stefan did love her and  how she really believes his feelings will come back for her.. and then you listen to Rose’s point of view how Damon can either be the best or the worst for Elena and i think if the writers know how to choose the right timing for them Damon and Elena will be together besides i cant help but feel bad for Damon like he said its ALWAYS Stefan I think Damon deserves to get the girl he loves just once and seeing that Elena is probably the best for him to its perfect they can help each other grow Elena can be a major bitch to Damon and i dont like those parts about her cuz at times it seems like shes only stringing him along but when they can kiss you could see the close connection they had in that moment and when Stefan and Elena kissed after her and Damon it wasnt as passionate and almost like Stefan realized Elenas feelings for Damon are only getting stronger but shes denying it to herself it doesnt help that Caroline and Bonnie and Matt all believe she should stop trying to be with Damon n go with Stefan ya Damons been a bit of a dick to all of them but that doesnt change how he feels about Elena alot of the things that happend to them were because of Damons feelings for Elena… all in all i dont mind the love triangle its just in all reality there isnt much of a love triangle beeing shown except that one kiss between Damon n Elena i think they need to show more of the triangle with Damon n Elena

    I’m kinda thinking that Elijah may have some play in the future with Elena.  Have you picked up on how with each interaction bewteen them (Elena and Elijah) that his looks towards her are more and more admiring. He is noticing that she is NOTHING like Katherine and he is starting to be drawn to her.  He has saved her on more that one occasion from his siblings and that letter he left for her in her room before he left town says a lot to me.

  • Tju

    I totally agree with you. The more you wait, the better it gets. Endgame is Delena for sure. Stefans love has become completely ordinary in contrast to Damon’s.

  • A_softsong

    The epic love affair, the epic triangle, etc in season 3. 
    I am still waiting on EPIC  ( heroic; majestic; impressively great). 

  • SINCERELYSHELB

    In the begining i loved Stefan..Damon was a total jerk, but as time went on Damon opened up not to everyone but to Elena because she saw something good in him even when he was a dirt bag. Its season 4 and i still love Stefan i think he is a great guy but hes old news..he left, yes to save his brother which was so sweet but he let Damon in to rent space in Elena’s mind. Damon is the bad boy eveyone wants to go GOOD..and he did. Yeah hes not as sensitive as Stefan, but hes honest and is selfless when it comes to Elena. He held those feelings in when his brother was still in her life he took those memories away because he knew at that time he wasnt going to compare to Stefan. When she remembers everything it is going to rock things. I think she is going to play it off like she never remebered bc in her head she picked Stefan but as time goes on little by little Damon will creep right back into the space. Its been said Damon will not be pinning for Elena this season, i think he is seriously going to try to let Elena be with Stefan bc he wants her to be happy. An its going to drive Elena nuts not having Damon at her beckin call….btw i miss ALARIC
