Stefan V. Damon: Who Had Hotter Chemistry With Elena On Last Night's 'Vampire Diaries?'

vampire diaries 3x06

Since Elena is incapable of making up her mind, let’s pick the right Salvatore brother for her!

Now that Stefan (Paul Wesley) is a total loose cannon on The Vampire Diaries, Elena (Nina Dobrev) has come down with a major case of the wishy-washies: Should she keep fighting to save what’s left of Stefan’s humanity, or should she simply move on to his ready-and-willing older brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder)? Because I’ve recently been accused of letting my Damon bias get the better of me, I’m now opening myself up to the possibility that either brother could potentially be right for Elena.

The Oct. 20 episode, “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” was a crucial one for Elena, as she reminded the fans that no matter what each brother’s current situation is, Elena clearly has chemistry with both of them.

She was practically breathless as Damon taught her the finer points of vampire combat, and even though she only flirted with Stefan to lure him into a trap, there was no denying the look of intensity in her eyes when he caught her. Her attraction to Damon may be getting harder to deny, but I’d be wrong to say she doesn’t still have strong feelings for Stefan.

(CLICK HERE for our recap of this week’s episode!)

So which brother proved himself to have better chemistry with Mystic Falls’ favorite doppelganger?

Two brothers. One girl. Choose wisely.

Excellent points, Ashley. Really, all of the evidence points toward Delena. I’m doubtful if, the end, she’ll wind up Damon (or either of them, for that matter), but Damon is still the better vampire for her. Stefan is too self-hating. Elena remarked that Damon “doesn’t know what love is,” but she’s clearly only misunderstanding his love for her. Damon doesn’t always act in accordance to her wishes and he can be selfish (ie she preferred death to becoming a vampire, and he gave her the blood anyway), but that doesn’t mean that what he feels for her is not love, or any less powerful than what she and Stefan feel for each other. Furthermore, the development of Damon and Elena’s relationship has made their feelings much more complex and realistic than those between Stefan and Elena. Elena almost seems to romanticize Stefan a bit, while, with Damon, she’s always known all sides of him, and therefore sees him as he is, not as she wants him to be.
I might add that Elena has done more for Damon than she has for Stefan.

Stefan and Elena need to be together, he is lost at the moment but it is just right for them to be together, it always has been since the first episode.

Damon and Elena…all day, every day, all ways.

Seriously, chemistry aside, despite the obstacles and the pain, Damon and Elena always come out on top. They have a relationship built on FRIENDSHIP and trust. And who’s this “we” some Stelena fans are talking about? No, I will not say Stefan is better for Elena b/c he’s not. Elena got with Stefan w/o knowing him at all. Stefan lied about who and what his was, and his past. He still can’t accept what he is himself, he’s so filled with self-loathing. If you don’t love yourself, you’re not capable of loving others the way they deserve.

Damon has proven himself selfless when it comes to Elena AND Stefan. He makes Elena stronger, even Stefan pointed out the change. Damon is a rock for Elena and expects nothing in return. He saved Matt this season and got no credit and didn’t ask for it, same with turning Bonnie’s mom for Stefan. And despite Elena’s past relationship w/ Stefan and Damon’s feelings for her, he’s been there for her throught the whole time Stefan was gone and here but not really there. Damon and Elena belong together. Their foundation is built to last through any obstacle.

And not only that, but Stefan has proven that his own self loathing is stronger than his love for Elena. Case in point, him trying to kill himself in Season 1 and him rejecting and pushing away Elena any way he can in Season 3. He only cared about revenge, even to the point of leaving Jeremy for dead when Elena asked him for help (there goes the Jeremy neck snapping argument) and forcing Elena to drink his blood and trying to kill her by driving off the bridge (there goes the Damon forcing Elena to drink his blood to SAVE her argument). There is plenty of evidence against Stelena and for Delena.

who cares if she met stefan as being the good guy first? who cares?? she doesnt care if damon was the good guy! she cares if he’s being the good guy now! which is why theyre getting closer, stop making excuses.. elena is meant to fall for stefan and if it’s about that she loves his ripper side as well.. ive never seen the big deal about delena, never! no offence to the shippers but i dont think ian and nina bring their amazing offscream chemistry to the show, paul and nina do.. always liked them better. not to mention.. WE ALL WANT WHAT WE CANT HAVE, once DAMON AND ELENA start actually hokking up that DELENA spark may quickly fade away.

No it wont’ quickly fade. There’s a reason Stelena were thrown together and Delena weren’t. Stelena has faded. The writers have written Delena to be loved, not hated. It’s obvious and has been obvious since 2×08.

Hmm I watched 3 x 14 hoping for a Delena dance as photos showed…but no. They play the fan bases for ratings. Stelena will get a bone one week then Delena the next. It will be interesting to see if they can get away with that for another three years.

i think that these polls are ridiculous. Damon always wins because delena takes up more than half of the show… but we all know that Stefan is the better choice for her, he may have hurt her, but he was just being selfless.

OMG don’t you got it?! They CAN’T enf the show like YOU want it to end! They have to end it like most of fans want it! Which means, they have to end the show with Delena!! Or they will be hated… And btw these polls are NOT ridiculous. They show Kevin and Julie which pair has more fans so they know what fans want. And how you can see, Delena is what fans want. So Delena will be the pair which will survive…

I think Stefan and Elena’s love is strong and they should defiantly stay together because she is very helpful at keeping his humanity alive. There is nothing wrong with Damon but he has the same temper Stefan does, at times they both can be “rippers,” but they both have a sweet side.

Just to add Stefan did say he still loves her but can’t be with her right now and he did have hopes for a future for them.

Stefan and elenas romance was VERY romantic but it was a bit like a fairytale. Damon and elena were like a firework display damons the flame and elenas the firework, when they touch sparks fly and they interact.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Stefan and Elena is just to perfect like like a childrens fairytale; from the get go they were practically in love almost like impulsively. The relationship that Damon and Elena share feels deeper and is much more dynamic.

Both Damon and Stefan are not perfect but Stefan was the bad guy before Damon Stefan even admitted to Elena that when he was craving human blood that the bad side he had was the real him. Its like she gets mad at Damon because he kills people yet she shakes it off when Stefan does it? If she gets upset at Damon for killing people she should look at Stefan no differently and at least Damon admitted he did while Stefan was making up dumb excuses. 1. Damon is more honest to Elena. 2. Stefan and Elena fell in love to fast I mean she can move on from Matt who she knew since childhood but she cant move on from Stefan? wtf. 3. She should blame Katherine for Damon killing Jeremy Elena said herself that Damon is not stable once it comes to her so she should have suspected Damon heartbroken, drunk, and upset that he could hardly control himself. If the same stuff was going on with Stefan he probably would lose control too and do something stupid. 4. Damon apologized for trying to kill Bonnie at least he tried to help her with her problems by helping her get rid of Emily. 5. When he turned Vicky it was because Vicky said her life was bad and Vicky didnt want to feel pain so Damon turned her into a vampire because he felt bad for her he looked out for her and taught her things. 6. Stefan killed there father he could of just ran not kill him. 7. Stefan was the one who forced Damon to turn in the first place and tought Damon how to be bad which Damon refused for a while. 8. Damon isnt all bad he has a good side to every vampire has it not just him but at least unlike Stefan even though Damon hates being a vampire he still exepts it and doesnt pretend to be another person like Stefan. 9. Even when Stefan stopped killing humans he kills animals like bunnies and squirrels thats called animal abuse. If he is going to kill animals at least kill the farm animals only. animal abuse. 10. If Elena knew Damon in 1864 she would choose Damon instead of Stefan.

You thing the show will end with Stelena? Do you see the poll up here? The most of fans of TVD are Delena fans, so Julie and Kevin CAN’T end it different way that fans want. All that people would freak out (including me)! The Vampire Diaries would be hated (okay, loved by the few wierd people, who want to see Stelena). And trust me, Kevin and Julie would be hated… But they are not stupid and they know it, so they will end the show how most of fans want – Delena.

Damon&Elena just have IT, but what’s really beautiful about their relationship is that IT didn’t happen right from the beginning, like with Stefan and Elena..they’ve grown closer over time, learned how to trust each other,and they’re ALWAYS there for one another. They NEVER walk away. Whenever things get rough, they stay together.THAT’S what you do when you love someone. You don’t walk away because it may be easier. Even though you think they may be safer without you or better off, you stay because you know that no matter how bad it gets, you’re just a better “you” when you’re with that person. THAT’S what true love is. Elena is just better when she’s with Damon. She’s so much stronger, both emotionally and physically, this season. And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she’s FINALLY starting to fight back now that Stefan’s gone, and Damon’s around her more…They also “get” each other, and they have this “understanding,” like Elena said, which is an understanding that just isn’t there between Stefan and her. It’s like you hear Stefan and Elena say they love each other all the time, but you don’t really feel it. You hear her CONSTANTLY saying she loves Stefan, but you just want to ask her…WHY?? And it’s not because it’s one of those great loves that can’t be explained. It’s because there aren’t any real reasons, other than the fact that Stefan cares about her and protects her, but so does Damon..With Damon and Elena, they don’t even have to say anything. With a simple caressing hand under her chin or a longing glance at his lips, you feel everything words can’t express. And as for the deserving Elena part of it, it’s like Stefan already got his shot with Katherine, and with Lexi, too. Stefan’s had people in his life to pull him back from the edge, but Damon hasn’t, which probably explains why he’s so comfortable there, and why he’s so hesitant about “feeling.” And when he finally fesses up and admits that he loves Elena, Stefan comes in and says that it’s alright for him to have feelings for her, but he can’t have her love in return??? Not cool. Everyone thinks Stefan is the better man/vampire, but he’s not; Damon is. Damon deserves to be loved. Plus, if Elena and him don’t get together, and they aren’t “end game,” then it will be like Damon’s journey and growth as a character was all for nothing. Not to mention that little thing where Stefan was the one who practically made Damon turn into a vampire. But that’s okay, because like Damon said in the season two finale, all of the choices he’s made led him to her, Elena. That sounds a lot like DEstiny to me. And honestly, I think the only reason Elena met Stefan was so she could meet Damon. Fate’s funny like that. Oh, and they’re so damn hot together…Did I leave anything out??? :) Because I could LITERALLY go on for days, especially if it means convincing people that these two are just…perfect together. How some people can’t see that for themselves is beyond me, though. And caring this much about fictional characters is probably not healthy or normal, but I’ll blame it on these characters making everything feel so real..and Ian and Nina’s unbelievable chemistry, of course.(; Damon&Elena,forever<3

Eh…no. Damon and Elena have IT. And Stefan deserves to die alone for what he has done to Elena. Driving over the same bridge as her parents died just to get to Klaus is just down right devilish and sadistic. No to Stelena because really it never happened, the true love was shown when Damon kissed Elena’s hand, her eyes grew large with love and trust. Can you see it now? DELENA FOREVER!
