Damon all the way. He’s so hot and I hate Stefan. I was gonna stop wouldn’t even watch this if Damon wouldn’t final get elna. And I think Stefan it’s more selfish than damon. Stefan has always got the girl and the one time damon does he’s crazy.

Although for endgame I’d like to see Elena and Damon together, I find the love triangle to be alright the way it is, simply because I don’t think the brothers would be as compelling (either of them) if the roles were reveresed. Yet I feel like it would be nice if they did shake up the dynamic a bit.

I’d like to see Damon “attempt” to pull away some. Things like Damon actually leaving town, but have someone preferably Elena go and get him to come back, wheter its because she needs his help again, a ‘this is your home too’ type thing, or even just because she wants him back in town. It would be nice just to have Elena be the persuer for a change because we know she has some feelings for him, and she’ll admit it then the next scene will seem way more one sided.

I would also not be opposed to Damon bringing some other ladies AKA Distractions around because the prospect of Vampire Elena jealousy seems like it could be an interesting emotion to explore outside of her now common vampy emotions like whiny, sad, miserable, guilty, and sometimes rage when it comes to Rebekah.

I would not even be opposed to Katherine coming back to serve as a Damon “distraction.” I don’t believe it is out of the realm of possibility he did hook up with Rebekah right after she tried to kill Elena in season 3. I think it would definately cause some friction in the love triangle as well.

Like everybody else here I’m on Team Delena. I hate the idea of ‘the cure’. I would be really disappointed when Elena gets back her humanity. Elenea is finally a vampire and should deal with the advantages and disadvantages. Why don’t cure Kathrine instead ? She is also a doppelganger and Klaus can use the blood from her. I also hate the whiny side of Stefan. Like the others said here, I think Damon is much more help to Elena than Stefan. It makes it really looks like Stefan doesn’t believe in Elena when he mentioned that Elena is driven by Love and when she switch off the humanity once she’ll never get it back .. blah blah … definitely Team Delena !

okay i am TEAM DELENA ALL THE WAY!!! but did any one else notice last episode when stelena fans thought they were having there moment and then DAMON appeared…the song that was playing was saying And it feels like I am just too close to love youThere’s nothing I can really sayI can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no moreGot to be true to myselfAnd it feels like I am just too close to love youSo I’ll be on my way…hahahaha basically that whole song is talking about ending it and moving on to someone else…and then this week on “the five episode” where elena and damon dancing the music goes like this…I feel so close to you right now It’s a force field I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal Your love pours down on me, surrounds me like a waterfall And there’s no stopping us right now I feel so close to you right now…its obvious there going in a DELENA way with this show you just have to read in between the lines

You, you literally read my mind. I ABSOLUTELY agree with you. The writers give us delena fans some kind of signs, like all of these amazing songs and all those small hot excellent delena-moments, those are signs that delena obviously will happen after all. I don’t care how many times Elena will say that it will always be Stefan, please it’s bullshit. If she truly love Stefan, from the bottom of her heart, then she wouldn’t still have feelings for Damon.
And we all know it, team Salvatore team Stefan or team Delena.. Damon and Elena WILL end up together. It’s just a matter of time. ;)

This show is getting old… Look at Elena; she’s behaving exactly like Katherine(very original writers). I for one hope that Elena will be cured, and get this Katherine/Damon behavior out of the way. And Damon, grow the fuck up and chase someone else who better fits your description of “how to be a Damon wannabe”. I’m not Team Delena of Stelena, but guys, get your head of off your asses and accept the fact that “Delena” is not going to happen. They only have a story because Damon feels something for her, but that’s it.

And i saw an comment on how Stefan doesn’t have any faith in Elena. Elena never wanted to be a vampire… He knew, that if Elena would kill someone, then that’s the same thing that would destroy Elena because of her love and compassion; something Katherine already forgot. So instead of teaching her how to hurt people and control her blood lust and have fun with it like Damon, Stefan is(once again) busting his ass off to find a cure that may or may not exist(deja vú with Damon and his disbelief when Stefan told him there was a cure for it) for Elena, so she can have the normal human life that she wished for. But all of you are so obsessed with Damon for not getting love, always getting hurt, his bad-boyish behavior and last – but not least: his appearance. Look, he’s the bad boy – and sometimes good, older brother. But Stefan is the one she chooses. I’m aware of the fact that i’m kind of contradicting myself by praising Stefan, haha. But Stefan is the one she’s ending up with.

So far the only things Damon did is:

-killing Jeremy out of jealously
-trying to turn Elena
-resenting Stefan for being in love with his own girlfriend
-trying to turn Elena for a second time

You get the idea.

you are very right. i started watching the first season a week ago (i know, i know im horrible) and i originally wanted to stay clear of “shipping” for anyone. BUT i cant help it…i am team stefan all the way. elena and stefan are crazy in love, and i like how they both helped each other out during the darkest of days. damon is sexy, and is only good for well…sex. elena has to end up with stefan! producers, dont tease me with such a beautiful/dynamic couple and then tear away at the end with “and that’s how the story ends, she leaves the guys she fell madly in love with and sleeps with his brother. the end.”

Just been reading some comments below, and although in GB were only on episode three, one thing stuck out. Ever since Elena turned, there’s been a running theme of no one wanting to accept Elena as a vampire, but they immediatly accepted Caroline when she turned and even Tyler when he became a hybrid and was technically under Klaus’ control. First Stefan lectures Elena when Rebekah attacks her instead of confronting Rebekah and then Bonnie gives her a ‘disapproving’ look at the frat party. No wonder she can’t come to terms to with it. All we need is for Elijah’s horrified reaction when he realises his precious human Elena has turned into a bloodsucker and she’ll probably take off her daylight ring and go out to burn in the sun. Couldn’t we wait till towards the end of the season, for the cure to turn up

Elena completely sucked in this episode. The most disappointing episode by far. More like a third wheel rather than a triangle.

I am team Delena but Damon is on the loosing end cause ‘its always gonna be Stefan’. I am tired of Damon being the one who doesn’t get love, I think they should just get another ‘Andy’ or ‘Rose’ for Damon. He deserves to be happy, everyone does!
I also sense a Klefan bromance.
Oh and true, that cure might cure someone else other than Elena.
I love TVD.
Andy Kudos! Amazing review!

you got it all wrong its not ‘ its always going be stefan’ its ‘I cant think about always only right now’..Stefan is her right now..not her always LOL The only problem with getting another Andy or Rose <—-they were merly distratctions while Damon did 'love' Rose he was not 'in love with her' they both knew he was in love with Elena. Being a Delena fan you should know by now there is only one way Damon will be truly happy and that is with Elena the 4×04 hug reinforces that.

I have a feeling that the real shocker with this cure will be NOT curing Elena, but one of the Salvatores. Sounds like a ridiculous notion, but it could happen. The selfish TV fan in me, hopes not. However, the endearing character lover in me, thinks Stefan could cure his ripper ways and maybe Damon can be happy and have a family or have the choose to die naturally like before when his brother took that choice from him. Anyway, its an interesting plot twist. I agree that TPTB aren’t wasting any time at all!

I call this “the season of the merry go round” only it’s not so merry at the moment.Damon the vampire door mat for Elena.I have no respect left for her whatsoever.She blatantly lied to Stefan on the porch.This show is just going in circles as far as the whole triangle only difference being this season Elena actually treats Damon worse.

The show is tiring and redundant and we didn’t we all see a cure coming a mile away.I have to say that the Stefan/Rebekah/Klaus scenes were really good.I liked the mythology part it was really good.Now if they could just please let Damon have his manhood back and get him away from Elena for awhile I would be happy.This whole triangle that isn’t a triangle is getting boring and Elena’s whining for the last 3 seasons is beyond stupid at this point.

I need more Klefan..
this Elena needs to be cured and she can’t handle being a vampire feels force. So many other had to deal with it to. She has so much help and will never be alone…but she can’t stand it??? Ihave problems to believe that.. what is so awful to enjoy to feed??????
I like the SE and the Stefan, Rebekaha n Klaus scenes..pls more Klefan
You are right about Rebekah she was great
btw 15+15+10 = 40 and not 50

Andy, I love you! Your reviews are by far the best, and I really feel like I have a kindred spirit in you! Anyways, how annoying wasn’t Elena after Bonnie showed up? Loves the nickname btw, buzzkill is very fitting…

Team Damon

Posted at 6:05 AM on November 2, 2012  

I was hugely disappointed with this episode. Rebekah’s story and Stefan’s 50 Shades of Grey reference were the highlights of this one.

It was nice to see Elena let loose and have fun dancing away with Damon at the party. As much as I enjoy that things are typically face paced in this show, they definitely blew it by rushing through the party scene. Elena’s struggles through the transition could have been delved into more and given Elena even greater depth and made us feel more for her but instead Bonnie buzz kill stepped in and with one look ruined the whole experience and turned her back into her whiny self. She doesn’t need to turn off her humanity, but she does need to accept who she truly is which is someone who does like to have fun and enjoy life and not someone who wants to sit around crying and worrying all the time. Damon knows she has it in her to balance the two, and he’s trying to show her it is possible while Stefan has no faith in her and is now on his noble quest to find ‘the cure’.

Then to top it all off by having Stefan screw up Damon and Elena’s time on the porch (which is sacred ground for them) just added insult to injury in this episode. I’m team Delena all the way, but I’m so tired of him getting the shaft. He so deserves better.

stI*I genuinely love this show and found this to be an episode of two halves, Paul wesley and Joseph Morgan are awesome together and I am fast becoming Rebekah’s no 1 fan. The banter they have is what kept me tuned into the episode…now my issues..
.I am not afraid to admit I have wanted Damon and Elena to get it together since the end.of last season, it doesn’t take a genius to figure they are trying to set dark Elena up for Damon and that human Elena is the girl for Stephan. Right with ya there Plec, makes perfect sense. But if you are going to have scenes with the two of themtogether there needs to be legitimate progress…I’m not saying they even have to bump uglies, there needs to be some sort of enlightened thought on Elena’ s part ( isn’t that the literal translation of the name?! Light?!) Not the usual whiny b**s that we thought we.were.moving away from…I really dig Nina dobrev and think she makes Elena as engaging character as she could ever be but there’s only so much even the best actress can do!

Please bring out the awesome Elena we have had glimpses of over the last couple of episodes (even in todays ep…her feeding/fun moments were just class). I know its a marathon and the triangle is central to the show but maybe…just maybe Elena should stop being the damsel and make decisions without brotherly influences, I’m pretty sure she will knocking on Damon’s door! (Or ripping it off the hinges, whichever metaphor works better).
One final thing…having Elijah back was immense! Here’s to more Daniel Gillies who is by far one of the best and underused cast members…oh and shout out to Jeremy Gilbert for finally becoming a fully likeable and interesting character rather than just a plot device!! His badass comment to Damon last week was pricel
