i agree with everyone down below! the bond has not be broken because damon and the audience will never know how much of it is true love or just the bond in effect. i know her feelings for for him are real, but that doubt has already been planted in everyone’s mind. plus, elena just seems to…clingy and helpless this season; especially with her BEGGING him to not let go. i like elena, so please give the girl some agency! also, it’s obvious the show is a hit; therefore, it will be going on for a long time-im waiting to see her get back with stefan (#stelena!!!), cause i think that’s who she should be with. but for now, im curious about where they are going to take this sire bond thing-and if there is a cure…will elena be the one to take it?

Well maybe i`m stupid but some of you wrote that because of Delena stuff the ratings were goin down and that Stelena is the majority..So, i assume whoever you are, counting is not one of your best skills..If 2.4 million still watch the show to see Delena finally maybe happening than i think we got 75%..but just my thoughts..Anyway..It doesn`t matter what kind of shipper you all are, please watch the show..If the ratings go down than it will end before any of our favorite couple become endgame..than the result will be that CW will drop the show like the secret circle..The Delena fans had a lot of patience to see these two finally hook up..and it was not like i wanted it to happen as a huge fan of Damon and Elena..but i have still faith in Julie Plec..I want this show to be epic, whatever the direction is..

the ratings went down because of bad weather and snow storms that week, that is why i could not watch it and also because of the 2 squawk boxes interrupting the delena love scene the week before. we told everyone that got so ticked of not to do that and that next episode will be delena by the lake-house and the ratings went up again to 2.800.000 plus that week. Also the highest rating ever where the two heely promoted delena episodes by the cw and the director.

I think Damon should break the sire bond if he really loves her and to find out if Elena will go back to him or will she go back to Stefan

I love that Elena knows they are sired, but she doesn’t let that affect the relationship. She knows her feelings are true, and I hope that is enough to keep them together. My co-worker from DISH convinced me to start watching this show during season one and it grew to be my favorite show. I have so many other shows on Thursday nights that having the DISH Hopper allows me not to worry about any DVR conflicts, since I can record up to six shows at once. I cannot wait to see what will happen in the mid-season finale, because I have heard that someone is going to die. It will be exciting to see if they can break Jeremy from the hunter instinct.

ok so how does no one see this!! By telling elena to live her life without him and to forget about him, SHE IS OBEYING HIM, the sire bond is not broken at all!!! How can the sire bond be broken when here she is still obeying what he said to do.

that’s cause the bond CAN’T be broken, this is the best solution that they have so far.

He can’t let her go because he would have to leave her forever. But as we know he and Elena will be at her house close to a lake together. So, guess what? He will try to believe that her love is completely true. And it is because the bond is just affecting on what she does, not on her feelings. Sorry for my bad English, I’m German.

Damon can’t leave Elena there meant for each other. If Damon breaks up with Elena she would probabley go back to Stefan and some of us delena fans don’t want that to happened at all. Seeing Jeremy chopping up wood made me like I wanted to die. Jeremy looked hot. I think Shane should show Haley were her parents are buried at so Haley can be with them. So I really do hope Damon and Elena stay together and don’t break up. I didn’t want this sire bond be true at all. Elena loves Damon. So Stefan needs to be with somebody else and leave Damon and Elena alone. That sex scene was awesome.

Damon can’t, because then he’d have to leave. And that would end the show. I mean, who is gonna watch it without him? It really isn’t right to string all the fans on this way, so come on! We don’t want him to do the “You’re better off without me” speech anymore, we just want good ol’ Delena romance. And sex. And cute-ness. No more Stefan getting in the way. Just the two of them, being happily together. That would make me and millions of other fans happy.

You are so right! If Damon tells Elena to stop thinking about him and all that crap the witch told them he had to do in order to break the bond, he would have to leave Mystic Falls forever. The show will be SO over…who will watch if Damon is not on? Nobody. If he uses the bond to order her to forget him, that will be him abusing the bond to control her. Isn’t that what they are supposed not to do? The writers have corner themselves in this little conundrum, and whatever they have written as an exit, will leave people disappointed to the point they’ll stop watching the show. I, for one, will stop watching if Elena goes back to Stefan like nothing happened…that would make Stefan a doormat, Damon an abused man(by Elena) and Elena…oh Elena, you would be the bitch of the decade…

If people tell Damon and Elena they are sire bonded enough times they will start to believe it themselves. Enough about Damon and Elena, what I want to know is where Jeremy is heading now that he’s a potential Hunter, or rather a Hunter. If he’s the key to ‘curing’ Elena, what’s a safe bet that he’ll have to die, maybe Damon and Elena should concentrate on protecting Jeremy from Stefan of all people, and himself as well, or they’ll all end up on the wrong end of a stake. Also we saw Jeremy try to kill Elena when his hunter side kicked in, so what if he kills her before they find the cure, or Stefan will never get human Elena back and no more doppelgangers or blood for Klaus.

Its a little late for her to be admitting she is falling in love with damon. She should have said ‘I’m in love with him.’ She started falling for him a long time ago! Either way the sire bond will not tear them apart. Damon may back down a little, but it will give elena a chance to show us all how much she really loves him!

I FIGURED OUT A WAY TO SOLVE THE SIRE BOND WITHOUT DAMON LEAVING ELENA!
The plan is so simple:: 1) Damon, tell Elena that every time you say or hint something that Elena doesn’t want to do, she should slap you!, => 2) Whenever you get a slap, a) you just back out of your reqeust or b) if you really think Elena should do as you say, ask her to explain why she doesn’t want to do it and then decide if it’s worth to convince her to do it or not.

@Andy
Well, okay, skip part 2B, I still think it’s a good plan. I would like Damon and Elena to get to know each other better, I mean, they could talk about important things, so Damon would know how she feels about them, so he could anticipate when she does something she doesn’t really want to do.

That wouldn’t work. Elena being sired to Damon means her desire is to please him whether she wants to or not.

Personally I like the twist. Everyone’s treating it as a bad thing, but listen to what Tyler said “it doesn’t affect your feelings..just your actions. I mean I hated Klaus, but I still did everything he asked.” And for a vampire to be sired to another, the vampire MUST have feelings for the sire BEFORE they were turned. HUMAN FEELINGS. Vampirism just heightens those feelings. Besides Elena’s always had feelings for Damon, think about those kisses they share in Season 3. Stefan and Elena fell in love too easily. Damon and Elena GREW to love one another. Another thing, Elena brings out the good side in Damon, and Damon brings out the fun side in Elena. With Stefan, he was already a good guy, she didn’t do anything for him.
