Andy’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ Afterthoughts: Elena Should Be With Damon & Stefan Should Be With Caroline!

The couples on this show are all wrong! Allow me to recast them so they make more sense:

Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) have always seemed like such a sickeningly sweet, and mostly perfect, couple — but after watching the Sept. 23 episode of The Vampire Diaries, I think it’s time these two go their separate ways. It’s so obvious that Elena should be with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), a guy who can actually challenge her, and Stefan fits better with newbie vamp Caroline (Candice Accola) because she brings out his fun side.

Keep in mind, I’ve never read the book series the show is based on, so I have no idea what’s going to happen. But it seems pretty clear these are two very mixed-up couples. Here are 4 reasons why my theory is correct:

  1. Nina and Ian’s scenes (aka the one at the end of tonight’s episode) are so much more emotional than the ones between Nina and Paul. Those interactions have gotten kind of flat.
  2. Damon is still totally hung up on Katherine, so it’s only natural that he would move on to someone who reminds him of her. Gee, I wonder where he could find someone.
  3. Caroline is up for grabs now that Matt (Zach Roerig) decided to dump her.
  4. And finally: You all already agree with me! You voted that Ian and Nina make a hotter on-screen pair than Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, so you obviously dig them together.

Am I right, or am I right?
