Watch Damon defend himself: Elena’s ‘happy because of me!’
Does Elena (Nina Dobrev) really love Damon (Ian Somerhalder), or did she merely choose him over Stefan (Paul Wesley) because she’s sire-bonded to him? That’s the question the Salvatore brothers explore in this explosive clip from the Dec. 6 episode of The Vampire Diaries, in which Stefan and Damon make a high-stakes wager over the doppel-pire of their dreams.
It’s too intense to summarize, so here’s the boys’ word-for-word exchange:
Stefan: It was your blood that turned her, and she’s been different since day one because of you. You can’t deny that.
Damon: Sure I can! I finally got Elena to a good place about being a vampire. You two idiots can’t stand that she’s happy because of me.
Stefan: OK, prove me wrong. Tell her it’s OK to drink from a blood bag.
Damon: She can’t! Her weird doppelganger body rejected the blood from the bag.
Stefan: Right, because you told her to! You said she had to drink warm human blood straight from the vein; she almost died to make you happy. … Look, just ask her to drink from the blood bag. Make sure you tell her how happy you’ll be if it works. If I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to apologize.
Damon: When her body rejects this blood, which it will, your apology better be epic.
Watch the bro-down below, then vote and comment: Do you think Elena’s body will reject the blood, even after Damon tells her to accept it?
