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

Thu, September 23, 2010 11:59pm EDT by 154 Comments

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?

How can you possible think that Damon is right for Elena? Granted this is a television series, but how can we encourage young girls too choose the vicious, deceitful, seflish bad boy who has hurt everyone? Damon has done so many things to warrant Elena’s hate, not love. How could Elena love the person who physically, emotionally, and in other ways, abused her friend caroline? How could Elena forget that Damon threatened to kill her best friend in the entire world, Bonnie. Or what about how Damon killed Stefan’s best friend with no hint of hesitantion or remorse? Or, how he brutally turned Vicky and caused her death? Or what about how he turned her mother into a vampire, and clearly had sexual relations with her? Or, how he snapped her brother’s neck, for all intesive purposes killing him? Or what about the other countless lives he has taken and destroyed since we’ve been introduced to this character??? And THIS is who you think the moral, value laden human Elena Gilbert should choose? Why??? Because he’s hot? Not good enough I’m afraid. Damon shares no commonalities with Elena. They do not value the same things. Elena is much more selfish when she is with Damon (forgetting and forgiving the havoc he caused for her, her friends, and her family). I just think that the continued amping up of this couple fuels the misguided belief in girls and women that you can ‘fix’ that bad boy and he will change for you. Nuh uh, not gonna happen.

this is a vampire tv show damon is a vampire, and even under all of that there is a good side to him, most the things happened a long time ago in the show and elena can’t help but love damon.

Ok, so after “Memory Lane” there is no doubt for me- Elena/Damon, Stefan/Katherine <3 I don't know how Nina Dobrev does it but she has way more chemistry with Stefan as Katherine than Elena plus I think Stefan's much more fun with her. As for Stefan/Caroline- nah…. it doesn't make sense to me AT ALL

Stephan & Elena belong together. These two have perfect connection on every level and would do anything to make another person happy. They have this enviable maturity and tenderness to their relationship and I totally root for them but I’ve read the books and it’s going to get more confusing. So be ready people.

Damon belongs with Katherine. They are hot for each other after so many years and they are both evil. IMO it’s a perfect pairing :)
Too bad Katherine claims to love Stephan but if they follow the books she won’t be around much longer. Though for the show I would keep her on because having her around creates drama and element of constantly present danger.

I wouldn’t say i ‘ship’ Stefan & Caroline but i’m wayyyy more open to them than to Stefan & Elena. S/C actually have chemistry and make an interesting and a more realistic couple.

Damon belongs with Elena and one day Elena will belong to Damon as well.

FYI- The books haven’t ended. MIdnight is going to be published this year, and LJ Smith is writing 3 more books so the story continues, and she said Damon is her favorite character so the end is not determined yet.

I totally agree with you @Melissa and @Angie Stefan and Elena belong together and I was very confused when I saw this article I do agree that Stefan and Caroline can just laugh when their together but I think she fits better as a best friend type not his girlfriend he loves Elena and thats never going to change and Damon is just wrong for Elena he’s hurt her too many times to even have a chance with her. I have read the books and she does have strong feelings for Damon at times but then she remembers Stefan and it all goes away and she ends up with Sefan in the end. this is how the couple thing should go: Elena and Stefan, Caroline and Matt, Bonnie and Tyler, and Damon by himself not forever at least but he needs to stop going after his brothers girls. Team Stelena Forever!!!!!!!!!!!

I so agree with you. And I hear it and read it everywhere. Damon is the one Elena should be with. I think that the writers intended for Stefan and Elena to be a good paring. But it failed. Now they are forshadowing Elena and Damon.

NO NO and NO Elena belongs to Stefan and DOT………..Damon could survive alone but I’m counting on him for sure to find someone can be so long and with Katherine………….and Caroline as she must be with Matt because it is so cool because they are too gold together……navyse tie dovody su uplne blbe a ze sceny su tak emotivnejsie je preto lebo ke sebe nieco citia ale vobec sa to nerozvinulo tak ako nech to pekne zostane tak ako to je as na to ze Caroline musi byt s Mattom

Are you serious? *is confused* Of course she shouldn’t break up with Stefan? Leaving him for Damon would be insane?

And Stefan/Caroline? This is crazy! No way!

I could not agree more! Damon and Elena are way better together than Stefan and Elena. The moments between Stefan and Elena are defenitely boring,flat, and lack chemisty! Just watching them hug is painfully ackward. I am also on board with the idea of Stefan and Caroline. Although, I really loved Matt and Caroline together.
