i agree, but when elana was human,even though she had some feelings for damon, she didn’t betray stephan. except when they kissed at the hotel we they wanted to find out if everybody was sired to klaus or not. and it was stephan’s idea for her to go with damon to figure out if she wanted to be him or not. so that’s elana’s fault. and also the witch new orleans told damon and stephan that a vampire sire bond can only happen if the person that was turned had feelings for the vampire while they were still human.if that vampire turns them, then a sire bond can occure.then elana’s feelings grew after she became a vampire, so her feelings for damon grew also.that’s not elana’s fault either.

Damon may look kind of shallow but good inside but stefan is hot but boring always being concerned is not the best road to take, you must take risks once in a while.

I can’t stand elena and Damon together! I love stefan and elena better. They bring out the best for each other and they are cute together and truly love each other. I hope Damon and elena break up and stefan and elena find there way back together. Damon had to sire elena to be with him, yes she loves him but not that deep connection love she has for stefan.

U guyz need to stop criticizing & stop abusive word,fans of delena need to stop saying abusive words at stefan,you should put yourself in his shoes & imagine u being the person acting the film and you see people saying those words at you how would you feel its only a film moreless like a fiction he his only working for his money & he’s doing what he’s asked to do.It is elena that needs to wisen up she have to stop using the two brothers coz they both deserves the best they both have their good & bad sides,she only makes them miserable & at the end leave them alone to meet the other she should decide what she wants herself & stop depending

If a Delena fan or ant TVD fan uses the name “Stefan” then its not against Paul Wesley (the actor who does the role of Stefan Salvatore). I hate Stefan, i dont think he is selfless, and i find him and Stelena annoying, but i love Paul, he is funny and cute and an amazing person.

What annoys meis she is toying with the two. I love Damon as a character but she’s picked stefan. As a human she tried to change Damon in to stefan. This season all she has done is say she doesn’t want to be like Damon. I struggle to see why any fan of Damon would want the delena pairing. She toys with him, emotionally hurts him, try’s to change him and constantly makes him feel the bad guy. I love Damon, he is funny, witty, dangerous and sexy. Yet when he’s around elena he changes who he is. Damon deserves someone who loves him for him and not what they can change him into. I also find it extremely annoying that Damon is persistently after his brother girl. I find that awful. I would never ever, go for someone that my sister loved. That’s my issue. I do love Damon, I just hope the writers eventually move away from elena with him and on to someone who actually deserves him.

I totally agree with you!!! At first I thought that damon and elena are good together and I still do but you right about elena using damon. She ask for his help and than she complain by comparing him with Stefan. Honestly I think they must just give damon a nice girl so that he can forget elena or let him leave mistric falls because it’s really anoying to see stefan win everytime. And like damon said: It’s always gonna be Stefan so whats the use of sticking with elena. Let stefan protect her since she choosed him…

Hey i totally agree with that statement. I think that damon is letting himself onto something that will not truely be what he wants it to be. It will never last because elena don’t know what she wants, she will just end up breaking his heart over and over and thats not a cool thing for her to do to him because she is just playing with his heart and damon doesn’t deserve that, he is a good guy trying to change for her but she takes advantage of his love and it annoys me to i really thing damon deserves someone that loves him.

elena does love him, its just that no one will let her. they think she deserves better, they don’t realize that he is so much better than they know.

I dont understand why people are saying stefan ” judges ” her… he CANT judge her , lol hes the ripper. and he always went to her about his blood problems. He didnt understand that she couldnt keep the blood down, he thought it was just a sickness that would pass. SHe SHOULD have went to him about it.

This show is worth it if you want to watch hot people and laughing at due to the bad show it really is nothing else, same plot over and over again. Glad that I stopped watching it a long time ago. They don´t care if Delena fans are angry they know that they will keep watching thinking what if??

I agree, Although Damon doesn’t help his situation with his bad boy image, He has shown his soft side to all the characters and they still can’t trust him, and even after finding out that Stefan cannot control ingesting human blood without turning into a monster, yet everyone’s fine and dandy with him. Elena obviously loves Damon more as she doesn’t have to try to have fun with him or be anything other than herself. With Stefan, he’s always trying to sheild her block her from everythink. she will not break, she’s stronger than that, but continues to play the damsel with him. Damon just lets her be herself. Clearly the better couple here is Damon and Elena. You can have feelings for two people at once, but at some point i really hope that she ends up with Damon. Her character is so much more interesting than it is with Stefan. Everything Damon has done it has been for her. He is helping Elena through her transition with what she needs. Not through what someone wants her to do, so that she’ll be like him. Use your head Elena! Choose wisely, and hopefully you Be with the correct brother….. Damon

Yes I agree that Damon is being unfairly portrayed as a predator. And your right on about Bonny “Buzzkill” Bennett. I’m not sure about Elena giving her the benefit of the doubt. But I don’t think that the blood sharing scene was creepy, thought that was very like them making love.

I knew this whole triangle thing wouldn’t end in the last season. They would never just let all us delena fans down. That’s why they put that twist with Damon meeting Elena first, and just like that all my hope for Delena was back. If she truly loves Stefan then she would not still have feelings for Damon. There will always be that hot attraction between Elena and Damon that no one can deny. The thing with Damon is that he makes her have some FUN. She has FUN when she’s around him, contrary with Stefan it’s freaking booring. And Elena’s afraid now cause she knows a part of her is becoming more and more like Damon. And deep inside she loves it. ;)

I think your logic that if she “truly” loves Stefan then she would not have feelings for Damon is not very good. The same arguement would be true for the reverse. The whole show is built on the premise that she has strong feelings for both brothers. Lets not forget as well that Mystic Falls time moves much slower in relation to time in the real world. So although it’s been MONTHS since Elena made her decision which remember by the way she was still very much unsure the entire season 3 finale even minutes before she decided it was Stefan when Matt was asking her where to drive too. It hasn’t even been a week! I think getting over either brother in that time would be quite difficult. Nevermind when you throw in the new information from Elena remembering what she was compelled to forget as well as sorting through her “heightened” emotions for both brothers. What’s love? Whats lust? What just caring for someone? When it all blends together into the “hunger.”

Although I along with many others get a little tired with the love triangle now that they have been dragging out for the past few seasons. I give the writers a pass for this season, because it just wouldn’t make sense for a girl that could not make up her mind, figure out how she felt about the brothers, be soooo indecisive. To suddenly when she got turned into a vamp and got all the aspects of her personality, and emotions heightened go from the most indecisive person to knowing exactly who she wanted and how she felt about everyone. That would annoy me even more so than the love-triangle that will never end.

I’m so tired of Elena and her desperaet need for attention from both brothers. I’m tired of Damon always getting the short end of the stick. He’s too intersting a character to be so underused. Ian is an amazing actor and deserves more than what he’s given to play. It’s the same old story over and over. Damon deserves his own love, it’s time they let him move on from Miss Wishy Washy.

I don’t know why I even bother reading your articles because everyone knows you are Pro-Damon/Delena. How about writing an unbiased article. All your articles is about poor Damon. I do not agree that he is being unfairly portrayed as a predator because that’s exactly what he is. He is trying to turn Elena into Katherine. He wants her to be like him and turn off her humanity. That is not who Elena was as a human, they keep saying her emotions are heighten well she was a sweet, compassionate, loving and selfless person as a human so she should be like that as a vampire. I think Elena should just depend on Stefan and Caroline to help her. She belongs with Stefan. I love the love story between them and all the things they have overcame to be together. I don’t hate Damon, I just don’t like the fact he still tries to take advantage of her(ex. the blood sharing). He hurt his brother by doing this. He should just be her friend and not do things to try to hurt his brother.

Obviously he has NOT turned off his humanity. Why would he be as involved with everything as he is if he had no humanity.

Oh and isn’t it terrible that a lot of Stefan fans are so rude with their comments. I never say anything bad about Stefan. I love his character especially since he doesn’t portray to be an Edward Cullen. I think the writers have made him great and I don’t understand why Stefan and elena lovers are so against damon. I guess because he is a huge threat . But I never hear or see on these things like that Stefan is ugly and sucks. Maybe delena fans are just nicer people. More forgiving or something. Just something to think about :)

Are you freakin kidding me? Go look up some YouTube videos of Stelena moments and you’ll see TONS of people making comments about how boring and ugly Stefan is. I’ve seen much more bashing from Delena than Stelena. More forgiving, check out this thread and tell me how forgiving Delena is. http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2012/11/01/vampire-diaries-season-4-episode-4-the-five-tv-recap/tab/comments/#comment-969669

Stefan’s relationship with Elena is far more romanticized than Damon and Elena’s as well. I mean they call them an epic couple and yet 90% of the time they are lying to one another and abusing one another in some way. It’s laughable and I hope no girl considers that to be ok in a relationship to lie constantly and never confront your issues in a relationship. It’s unhealthy.

Stefan is equally abusive if not more abusive emotionally to Elena. He stunts her growth and control because he has problems and insecurities in those areas himself. Thats not fair to Elena. And that one episode where he grills her for sharing blood with Damon without stopping to think hey maybe she is in a fragile place right now (with not being able to keep down blood). All he cared about was himself and whining about his girlfriend feeding on his brother? Hello, your girlfriend can’t keep down the one thing she needs in order to live and all you care about is yourself?!? I mean do you want your boyfriend yelling/guilt tripping you over something like that when your life is upside down and you could possibly die? He’s not helping her, he’s making things worse!

The thing is she should have told Stefan she couldn’t keep anything down instead of sneaking around with Damon. Damon took advantage of the situation. He knew it would hurt his brother, he even let him know about it in a bad way. He is not being a good brother right now and I really hate it because I really like the relationship between the brother’s in season 3.You don’t do that to your brother. I don’t like Damon & Elena together only as friends. I don’t hate Damon, it’s just my preference. When Stefan lies it is to protect Elena and the ones he loves.

she did try to talk to Stefan but he wasn’t listening to her, remember? She also tried calling Caroline but she was unreachable. That’s why she went to Damon. She knew he would help her, no judging, no questions asked

Ever since I stayed up ’till 2am. just to watch this episode I have made up my mind about giving up on this show… It hurts to say but I just can’t stand to see Damon be the one punished! Come on, Stefan is an animal killing, blood thirsty rippper! Damon who can actually control his thirst is the bad one? How in the hell is that fair?! Elena should really give up on both of them if this is what she is going to do to them both… Seriously Elena, evapurate or something! Go, shew, run of like Katherine and leave the Salvatore’s alone!!! Both deserve better than you! And this is coming from a Delena shipper… I gave up, so should Elena ‘Bitch’ Gilbert…!

No, everything he’s done this season fits with the character he’s been for the duration of the show. Damon’s relationship with Elena has always been abusive and emotionally manipulative.
And the problem is that the writers and the fans romanticize it.

I do feel like the transition is playing a part in Elena’s behavior. However, she has been stringing Damon along since, what, season 2? He does so much for her and she never even gives him credit for it. She allows Damon to be painted as the bad guy. When Elijah first comes to town and Rose and Slater kidnap Elena and bring her to that abandoned mansion, Damon, is the one who runs Elijah through with a coat rack. Stefan plays interference but Damon does most of the dirty work. When Elena, Damon and Jeremy were staying in that hotel last season things got pretty steamy with Damon, but she let him believe that something would come of that encounter. When Damon’s around Elena seems most secure. But she still allows everyone to picture him as the bad guy. It’s not fair to him to be used and played with by Elena in the first place (very reminiscent of Katherine’s behavior) but to help her and then not be recognized and be hated by everyone else due to his interference and her inability to defend him when she should is just completely unfair. I hope it turns around. I’m starting to dislike her character. :\
