'The Vampire Diaries' Scoop: Stefan Betrays Elena This Week

The Jan. 12 episode finds the former lovers at odds — again — and it gets really ugly, really fast.

A while back, The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec told reporters that this would be the “year of the originals,” but it’s looking more like the year of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) to me — and that only becomes more evident after the Jan. 12 episode.

My Mystic Falls source tells me that last week’s confrontation between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena — you know, the one that ended in her slapping him and telling him to go to hell — is nothing compared to their heated confrontation this week.

Without giving too much away, Stefan’s ongoing battle with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) leads him to betray Elena in a way viewers won’t see coming. Decisions are made, actions are taken, and Elena ends up getting VERY hurt.

So here’s my question to you: How do you feel about Elena’s relationship with the Salvatore brothers this season? Are you annoyed with Stefan’s sudden change in character, or are you happy to see Damon’s sensitive side getting a chance to shine? Drop me a comment with your thoughts!

I love stefan and elena together, but if damon changes a bunch i could live with it but stefan can not just walk out of the whole relationship because for one he is smokin and two elena is alway super happy with him when there is no bad things going on like the beginning of the lake house episode and for the third reason he always buts elena first. if stefan and elena get together damon cant walk out too he makes me laugh to much i dont have as much to say for him because he has not had a lot of time to prove that he is good to her.

THE WRITERS KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO HOOK US. I LOVE THE ROLE REVERSEL.TO ME ITS NOT ONLY ABOUT THE BROTHERS LOVING THE SAME GIRL, BUT THE BROTHERS BOND.ITS EXPOLSIVE..I LOVE DAMON. ELENA STILL NEEDS TO MATURE MORE. LETS BE REAL. IF YOU HAD SOMEONE WHO WOULD DIE FOR YOU AND LOOKS LIKE THAT. THE BEST YOU GOT IS WE CANT KISS ANY MORE,IT ISNT RIGHT. GROW UP LITTLE GIRL.ITS IS A SMOKING YEAR!! KEEP IT UP!!!!

In the books Elena is to Damon as Tyler is to Klaus…. Sired. And even then… it’s still Stefan that saves her from herself. I think it’s fine to explore the Delena story… even Katherine said it… she too loved them both but in the end it was Stefan… it will always be Stefan. Damon’s love is the manifestation of his desire to have what he should not. It’s the nature of Damon. I think the writers know that real intimacy between Delena is a point of no return. Season 2 episode 10 Damon promised Stefan to protect Elena no matter what happens… a request that Katherine tells him will be the biggest mistake of his long life… So maybe the point of all this is to show that sometimes you CAN come back from anything with enough love (sappy iKnow but it’s Hollywood). After tonight’s episode with the scene on Wickery Bridge it is clear that the writers are not quite ready to give up on Stelena :) A blind man could see what it took for Stefan to do what he did and also that some part of Elena “got it” when he said he lost her when he left town with Klaus… when he chose to save Damon… (PS iLove Klause and iMiss Tyler and Karoline). I say Delena fans should enjoy it while it lasts and then enjoy Nina and Ian as a couple as Delena may not last much longer on screen. Maybe after it all of this is over she’ll end up with Matt lol

I couldn;t agree more! ELENA’S wistfull gazing after Damon walked away…and that expression she got by saying :you can’t kiss me again”, it seemed as if she was talking to herself…she was trying to cxonvince herself…but remember what she said to Stefan in the 13th episode?im not telling you cause im feeling guilty that it’s happened…just guilty cause you dont know it! although she said it wasnt right to Damon!she is really confused!

The new stefan is interesting to watch, but I’m worried that the story line is just season 1 & 2 arc for Damon recycled…
I would like to see stefan and elena end up together, but not if elena hooks up with damon…that is just gross. Switching brothers, some things are off limits.

im sorry to say but she isn’t switching brothers…the circumstances allowed her to get closer to Damon because..she needed his help after Stefan leaving with Klaus. Damon was there for her, he earned Elena’s love by waiting patiently all this time …by trying to prove her that he is changed ..sometimes, you can fall in love with someone without meaning to hurt others….it’s beyond everone’s control

I love Demon and Elena and hope they get even closer than last week’s episode. Even if Elena was with Stefan ( and now not any more) , who can resist DEMON???? She makes a good choice if she chooses Demon. Stefan’s dark side is way much better that his “good” attitude. And what about Klaus??? Isn’t he great??!!!! Anyways all in all I LOVE season 3and well done both to the actors and the producers…you are really doing a great job.

i feel like damon and elena are new romeo and juliet (with a better end,i hope) their relationship is EPIC !!!!!
writers would be really stupid if stefan and elena end up together because since they met it was something between them and it was developing to this beautiful love for almost 3 years how anyone can t see it??
btw i love you delena fans

I’m annoyed with Damon and Elena this season. I feel that If Elena loved Stefan she wouldn’t be lusting after Damon. I also think Damon shouldn’t be flirting with his little brothers girlfriend 24 hours a day. I feel that Damon is confused with his love for Elena. I like how Stefan is this season although I would want him to go back to normal by the end of the season. It seems to me that Damon can act rotten without viewers hating him but Stefan can’t… Last but not least I don’t want to see romance 70% of the episode but actual solid plots. I remember being excited watching season 1 for each ep. Now the plot is WHAT WILL DAMON AND ELENA DO ON THIS WEEKS EPISODE. Honestly they might as well call the show The Delena Diaries…

Stefan DUMPED Elena! And Elena isn’t lusting after Damon, they shared one kiss! In 2 seasons and 10 episodes they shared 1 kiss. Whereas Stefan and Elena had sex in episode 10! And wtf about Damon can act rotten without viewers hating him? Stefan’s the one who always gets a free pass, who’s labeled as the Saint by the fans. And the Delena Diaries, really? It’s a freaking LOVE TRIANGLE!!!!! When are you Stelena fans finally gonna get it? We had to watch 2 seasons of Stelena, but now that it’s finally Delena getting together you’re having problems with that? Grow up! It was bound to happen.

I am a DELENA fan and I just wanted to say that ,when Elena was was Stefan we never called the show Stelena Diaries… We always knew that by time Elena will get closer to Demon ( even the books say so) so for now that’s what is happing in Mystic Falls…ELENA falling in love with DEMON (the right guy for her)…maybe later on this season or next one it will be Stelena again..who know what the producers have in MIND??!!! we wait and see.

Damon and Elena all the way!!!!! :D Damon and Elena built up their love they got to know each other as friends first before anything happened between them. Elena also knows exactly who Damon is, and he has grown so much next to her. Its not like when Elena was with Stephan were she didn’t know anything about Stephan. Elena and Stephan was all love at first sight, high school puppy love and blind to everything around it. Elena didn’t know anything about Stephan or Stephan’s past behavior only small little things Stephan would tell her after he was to far down the hole, and had no choice other that to tell her he was bad. Damon on the other hand has never changed Damon has been the same through every season even when Damon did evil things Damon still loves his brother and will do anything to protect Stephan, and now Damon is in love which only made Damon a better person and Damon did it for himself. Damon also had to learn a lot of hard truths through out the seasons, Demon learned what a b**ch Katherine was and he pick himself up and gave love another chance i hope Elena will do the same a give Damon a fair shot because he truly deserves her. DAMON ALL THE WAY!!!! :)

I AGREE WITH YOU!!!! AND FUNNY OR NOT I LOVE STEFAN’S DARK SIDE…GIVES HIM MORE COMPLEXITY AS A CHARACTER AND MORE STRENGTH IF HE SHOULD EVER DECIDE TO RETURN TO HIS “GOOD” SIDE…..I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A RE”MATCHING” DAMON AND ELENA – KATHRINE AND STEFAN….
