Do you remember when they (Elena, Damon, and Jeremy) were in the motel? Damon came over and laid next to her, and, said something very important that, I follow as well: “If you act good, then, people expect good.” Damon doesn’t want that pressure on his shoulders. In every situation the trio gets into he is always the one to make the hard (undesirable) choices. When they flipped a coin, it was supposed to be Stefan, that was going to turn Bon’s mom but, who did it anyways? Damon. If you actually pay attention to the things he does and see the background reasons to them you’ll notice something that contains absolutely nothing bad. Sure, he messed up with the whole Caroline situation, but, you must remember, he was like Stefan in season 3. He turned off his humanity for so long. You can always tell when it’s about to go off (or already is) by the crow he uses. One more point, do you remember the car ride back from the Motel? Rose told Jer her reason for wanting them to date and it actually made him think. “Stefan will always be ‘good’ for her and pure, but, she needs Damon. He always keeps her on her toes, thinking about her choices in life, and situations. He brings out the best in her and her him. They need each other. Stefan can never compare to him.”

Umm…are you nuts? Opposite effect on most people. She brings out the best in Damon, and he brings out the best in her- he challenges her, gives her new perspective, and a love that consumes and frees her. Her love consumes him, and challenges him too. While the love her and Stefan shared was pure and tender, it doesn’t amount to what her and Damon share together. Stefan doesn’t think for himself, and only follows whatever Elena says, hence her even -being- a vampire in the first place…he let her die because she said do. While Damon admitted “I would have let Matt die and I’d do it again because I will ALWAYS choose you”. Not to mention how selfless he is while Stefan receives all the credit and attention for being a good guy. Damon is stronger, and even erased her memory of meeting him first because he felt he didn’t deserve her and put her happiness first…Stefan is the selfish one, but no one sees it.

Stick to Stefan, he’s always loving her, protecting her, simply steadfast, unconditional…..what else can any woman ask for….sure, Damon sizzles. Like any fire, it’s hot and it scorch….then….

Why, so she can live out a less-fulfilling life? She expressed that Damon makes her feel free…he challenges her. He consumes her and she brings out the absolute best person in him. They’re perfect. Stefan is boring…he’ll always follow her, never think for himself or challenge her, and I think they’d be better off being best friends.

Damon and Elana NEED to be together. First of all, he always tries to get her and Stefan together even if he loves her. he is always there for her when she needs him and no mater how many times she chose Stefan he was there waiting. he deserves to be happy. Caroline and Stefan need to get over it and accept than Elana is happy with Damon…Team Delana all the way.!

Get over it she loves Stefan more…..I mean and why wouldn’t she other than the fact that Damon looks better than Stefan, Stefan is the perfect guy. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying that she doesn’t love Damon too just not as much as she loves Stefan….Damon is not a bad guy he just isn’t stefan…Honestly I hope Elena and Damon get together because Elena doesn’t deserve Stefan…..Poor Stefan.

That’s the problem, most people think this way. They admire those who publicly or outwardly exhibit the qualities that others think are conducive to a ‘good person’, while Damon, who actually deeply loves her, is self-less and doesn’t let anyone truly see it which proves how sincere and unconditional it is. Just because he doesn’t broadcast all the things he’s done doesn’t mean Stefan is better, who acted like a total jerk when he didn’t get his way….no one sees that he’s actually the selfish one, while Damon challenges her and shifts her perspective and consumes her. Stefan is kind of boring, in my opinion.

I hate this sire bond nonsense and hope the writers end it SOON. Damon was only allowed to be happy for a few hours WTF. Every week they find new ways to torture the poor guy. Give it a break for f***s sake. Team LET DAMON BE HAPPY.

Elena is sired to Damon but not by his blood. Klaus compeled her
to forget Stefan and sire herself to Damon. The writers have given
us the evidence to support this in the first 6 eposides. Elena isn’t
blood sired to Damon when she changes to a vampire.
4.1 Elena tells Stefan she was coming back for him when she
died,the best decision I ever made she tells him.
4.2 Damon blood shares w/Elena but she cant keep it down. (just
like the animal blood) Elena shows no interest in leaving with
Damon at the memorial service.
4.3 Elena goes to Rebekah’s party w/Stefan Not Damon, and leaves
w/Stefan for the motorcycle ride. Then back to Elena’s room for hot
vamp sex w/s until hybrid toxin makes her hallucinate see damon
and push him away. Not something a sire would do to the master!
Enter Klaus (first clue) save Elena from hybire posions and wants
nothing from Stefan but tells Elena he may have a use for her yet!!!
The one thing Klaus wants more than anything else is to break up
the Salvatore brothers. He hates Damon and still wants Stefan back
with him. He’s still pissed at all of them for killing him and klaus
always gets even. He dosn’t act now because Stefan is there, and
her feeling for the brothers don’t change the next two eposides.
4.4 Elena feels guilty for dirty dancing w/Damon she tell Bonnie
shes having feelings she doesn’t want and becoming someone she
doesn’t want to be.
4.5 Elena writes in her journal I’m a vamp and I hate it. Still loving
towards Stefan and kissing him.
4.06 Now Klaus makes his move. He grabs Elena to keep her safe
from the hunter hallucinations he tells the brothers, but he is finaly
alone with Elena and compels her to leave Stefan and sire herself to
Damon.
The next interaction with Damon is in her bed when she grabs his
hand and with doe eyes tell him how he always saves her. Damon
feels guilty and tell her every thing Stefan is doing is for her. She
just stares and asks no questions (not elena)
The next interaction with Stefan she breaks up with him.
Next day at the party Elena agrees with everything Damon says (the
dress she changes her mind to agree w / d. – worried about Jeremy
but doesn’t look for him because d tells her not to (never elena).
(second clue) Klaus and Bonnie walking at the party, she asks him
how Elena could be such a different person and Klaus says, “It will
all make sence eventually”

within 24 hours of the breakup with Stefan, Elena is kicking him out
of his house to sleep with his brother. Sure she has feelings for
Damon, but she would never act on them this fast and with total
disreguarde for Stefan’s feelings or how it might affect the brothers
bond.
The emotional switch between her and Stefan has been turned off.
and the one with Damon turned on, and it happened immediately
after her time alone with Klaus. It’s a Klaus compeled sire bond all
mind control!

I am team Delena just because I love their chemistry but I have to admit Ken, this is a very compelling argument. You did some great work ferreting this out. I have been wanting to go back and rewatch the episodes from this season to look for similar clues. I like this theory…I think it will be something similar to this that will play out. I almost forgot that the originals can compel vampires…nice catch.

Well..
U know what guys..
I dont care what everybody else thinks but i love Damon and Elena and im always on their side..
Alwayssss..
Dude..
I love them specially Damon not only because of his extreme cuteness but also because his character is really very different from others and he loves Elena unconditionally…
And Elena also loves him and secondly… Stefen’s feelings for Elena has changed since she became a vampire but Damon’s love is pure and he loved her as a human and as well as, as a vampire and dude… Cum on.. Damon do deserve love…
I love him and i want Damon and Elena together at any cost…
I am literally mad about Vampire Diaries and also about Damon and Elena..
And if you think that i hate stefen, u are perhaps right… ;)
Damon loves Elena more, he cares about Elena more and most of all, he isnt selfish with Elena,
Stefen is really very jealous when Elena is with Damon and Damon is also but he doesn’t express it that much as compared to stefen…

Now, in season 4, we all, Damon and Elena(Delena) fans want Damon and Elena together i really hope that they’d be together soon….!!! :)

posters continue to imprint their couple bias on the storyline. The fact is Elena has NEVER told Damon she loves him, no matter how you think she does.

Elena doesn’t have to tell Damon she loves him. It shows through Actions whereas Elena with Stefan, it was always said [too much], which suggests they needed to convince one another of their Love. Stefan has always been envious of Elena’s feelings for Damon & this also goes way back to 1864 with Katherine as well. Stefan has insecurities when it came/come to
Katherine/Elena and their feelings for Damon. Actions Speaks Louder Than Words!

Actually, thats where you are wrong. In episode 10 Elena tells Damon she loves him. She means it, too. Now, I wont argue with you, it’s obvious something is wrong under the surface, because the writers find joy in messing with our minds, but no matter what curve ball they throw at us, Damon would be the very best thing for her. Remember, Rose said so. Stefan is very boring with Elena, and honestly, their story as a couple should be over completely. They don’t have that spark. It’s just not there.

The Sire Bond is not as important as it’s being made out to be. Nandi did say that a Sire Bond is created based on a new vampire’s feelings/love for the one who made her/him before she/he was turned, which we all know that Elena loved Damon before she was Vampire. Elena love for Damon is as heightened since she became a Vampire, her feelings are more magnetized for him, which is not a bad thing at all. Stefan & Caroline are the ones that have destroyed the meaning of a True Sire Bond, which Caroline did not give up on Tyler even when he was Sired to Klaus but I find it interesting that she and Stefan has turned Damon & Elena’s Love/Feelings for one another into Doubt. I truly hope JP & KW put them 2 together, so that their minds will be free of Damon & Elena’s relationship, so that they can be happy w/o all the Drama!!!! Team Damon/DElena!!!!

Ok at first I was team stelena but as the seasons went by its starting to look like he the one for Elena. He cares for her , loves her, and does leave her like Stefan did. He pushed her away when she needed him the most and he wasn’t there but Damon was and he took care of her. Damon and Elena have a really good bond with each other and personally he’s the one!!!

What I really don’t like about Stephan in this episode is when he said that Elena cannot see how wrong Damon for her. Aarrrrggghhh…!
I wish Stephan knows that Damon already let Elena goes to him several times… Damon even defended that Stephan’s act is only to save her, make her happy…
Stephan must face the fact that Elena is happier when she’s with Damon

Stelena fans may as well forget it . Stefan been though too much and elena finally admitting her feelings to Damon sealed the deal . I highly DOUBT they would build Delena fans hopes up JUST to send her running back to stefan that would be a waste of a season . The show is really good and I don’t want to believe they’d backtrack like that . So yeah sire bond or not . Delena will remain and that’s that

I agree. If the writers backtrack Elena back to Stefan, then they have no new material. It would be a wasted season. It would mean the writers were taking the safe route and not even trying something new and daring. And of course, that would ruin the show, since isnt TVD about being daring? It’s not about being safe and comfortable. It’s supposed to be about adventure and love and even a bit of danger…correct? ;) Delena is the daring and fun way to go!

Well I think stefan should fall back and as far as Damon not being good for her who is stefan to judge? After all him and Elena weren’t exactly soulmates . His interest in her only peaked because of her resemblance to Katherine . Like the dead girl Damon was banging said, stefan is genuinely a good guy so he’d be perfect for whomever he ends up with while on the other hand Damon changes elena and she changes Damon . They complete each other . The site bond doesn’t influence feelings and Damon didn’t tell elena to fall for him . Stefan did drive her Into Damon arms after all so hey …

Since when is it acceptable to sleep with your brother’s girlfriend, even if you love her? And since when is it classy to sleep with your ex-boyfriend’s brother within a week or so of breaking up? She’s said all along, even in the beginning of this season, that she loves Stefan, but she stated within the last few weeks that she’s falling in love with Damon. So she chooses to explore possible feelings for Damon rather than be with her true love? I like both Stefan and Damon, but Elena gets on my nerves. She’s very loyal to her friends, but clearly she’s selfish in the love department. Stefan and Damon both have strengths and weaknesses, but quit hating on Stefan. He made Damon into a vampire because he loved him and couldn’t see spending eternity without him, selfish but sweet. He became the Ripper but didn’t enjoy it and hated it. They both have strengths and weaknesses. I’ve been Team Stelena since the series began, but I’m tired of how much Elena’s hurt him. I think they should bring Katherine back for Stefan, give Elena a taste of her own medicine but, more importantly, give Stefan someone who truly loves him. Katherine has strengths and weaknesses too, and she has always loved Stefan.

I am torn between who I want Elena with….the chemistry between Ian and Nina is off the charts – I believe due to their real life relationship….yet the love story truly is Stefan and Elena….but that is what makes this triangle work…there really is no bad guy…I feel so sorry for Damon all the time….but honestly who fall in love with somebody who killed theri brother…..even if it didn’t work. But I think we all want to redeem Damon and soothe his soul and we are all in love with him…Stefan knows Elena inside and out…sleeping with Damon without regards for Stefan’s feelings is not something Elena would do…..it just isn’t…no matter how sexy or how much we all want to sleep with Damon……

That’s nothing new, brothers/sisters in love with the same girl/guy [only in modern times, sometimes] & I’ve heard of scenarios like that before in real life. Unfortunately, you can’t help who you Love. In all fairness, if Stefan had just avoided Elena like he did in the books [Elena Pursued Him], then this would not have happened. Stefan knew Damon would have feelings for Elena as well & considering Katherine always chose Stefan in the past just as Elena eventually did as well, he should have stepped aside and allowed Damon to explore his feelings for Elena. That would have been more moral, than Stefan always getting what he wants. And what would have been even better is neither one of them dealing with her considering she looked like the woman [Katherine] who literally destroyed their brotherhood in the past, which affected their present. I also find it interesting how Elena always chose Stefan, even in the books but what it boiled down to was the fact that Elena fell in love with Damon and this was revealed to Stefan at Damon’s death & he never knew that truth until that exact moment when Elena zoned out everyone around her with only Damon in her heart & mind. So basically, it is possible to Love more than one person whether or not it’s Family/Friend related. I’ve been through something similar and it’s no picnic but the Love is definitely Real & worth it and nothing can destroy that, neither Family nor Friends.
