I am convinced that either A) there’s only enough cure for one person and Rebekah gets it-which in this case I feel like she’s the only one who deserves it- or B) they find the cure, whoever wants it will take it, and nothing happens-it won’t work.. I just don’t see then changing all the characters back to human-how boring would that be? It would be like watching the Matt and April show every week!

Love between Elena (human & teen) and Stefan it was ,,the first sweet love,, (Matt for Elena it was only a ,,dating thing,, in accordance with the ,,rules,, of the school) . She discovered the love with Stefan who was teacher for her in this matter (let`s face it : Stefan it is a men with +100 years of experience!!!). The love of Stefan will be always ,,the good thing for Elena, the safe thing for her,,. And let`s be honest: in REAL LIFE we ALWAYS CHOOSE the SAFE WAY for US, in order to keep our ,,world,, (family, friend`s, home) intact. When she chose Stefan she was making the chose in order to keep her ,,world,, safe and good for live her ,,dream life,,.
The struggle of Elena to bring back Stefan is in fact the journey of becoming an adult, but here it was Damon (a men with +100 years of experience !!!) her teacher in this matter. And a new & different love during this journey it was as sure as fate. Like in REAL LIFE that kind of love is there, growing there, in your heart and your soul, WITHOUT THAT YOU KNOW, TO BE AWARE OF IT. And not always is the right thing for you, like a person of human society (if you relate to the rules of what `s suppose to make in our life: grow, school, family, help for another human …). But can`t be the good ONLY for you, for your soul (if you relate of your deeply wish to absolute and eternal happiness , deep down of you). Like in REAL LIFE we ALMOUST NOT CHOOSE the SECRETLY THING WANTED ONLY FOR US because of ,,society good old rules,,.
We MUST be honest in the answer to the following questions : how real we want to be TVD in this matter ? how much we want to dream watching to TVD ? we want living by TVD a real/banal story or a deeply wished /amazing story ? have you never had to make this kind of choice in your life? And ,,after,, is was made (non important wich way )never put you a question : what if ?
When Elena became a vampire WON THE POWER OF RECOGNIZE THE NEW LOVE AND THE THE POWER OF CHOOSING WITHOUT BEING CONSTRAINTS OF THE RULES. And she choose Damon, with or without the sire bond.

@Gwen do u want to know why elena won’t fight for damon or their relationship…because it is not real..yes they do have an amazing chemistry/bond…but its never been true/epic love..you said it yourself..if it were to be stefan..she would fight for him like she has done from d beginning..so its a pretty obvious answer to your question..true love with damon..I don’t think so..like I’ll keep on saying..elena is a teenager girl who’s brain is messed up..I wish she would be killed off the show..so the two brothers can think straight..just saying

First and before all : I am a Delena fan, but I thought a lot to the last episode, and I am very sad.
I am just thinking about Damon`s VERY BIG DILEMA .
It`s real the love of Elena for him or is the sire bond? How he can`t break the sire bond ? Only if Elena becoming human again, and because Elena wanted that, he wanted too!
But he is thinking more and more to 1 very big TRUTH (from sez. 3) : Elena being human = Elena will choose Stefan. And will lose her for god ! And the proof for that : her proposal to take the cure with her (because Elena want him to be like Stefan, even if Stefan will take the cure for himself, that SELFISH IS HIM !!!) He will accept that ? He had change it so much in the name of love to Elena, but can`t change who it is ? even if this change will suppose to have a very big cost : WOULD MEAN TO LOSE STEFAN FOR GOOD and A SELF DESTRUCTION AND TOTALLY ABANDONMENT TO ELENA! He accepted from long time ago the fact he is a vampire, and to be human with Elena it will be VERY MOST SELFISH THING TO DO, but at the same time, THE GREATEST PROOF OF LOVE TO ELENA !!! Becoming a human it WILL BE the last proof of him to Elena, to everybody : how great it`s his love for her, but in the same time, the great proof of how selfish is him! Why Elena don`t understand that? Why SHE DOES NOT WANT TO CHANGE TOO or ACCEPT WHAT SHE IS, a vampire, IN ORDER TO FULFILL THEIR LOVE? Why, if her love is real, she don`t want to stay a vampire and live for eternity with him?! But IN THE SAME TIME he is asking himself: if she will change her option and will stay a vampire, for him the question of sire bond will remain – the twits of Julie Plec made only to kill this love by the beginning !!! At the end it`s a situation without escape, with only 1 option : he will HELP ELENA AND STEFAN TO TAKE THE CURE. This is a very BIG DILEMA for him. It will be the GREATEST PROOF OF HOW MUCH HE CHANGED AND HOW MUCH HE LOVE ELENA and HIS BROTHER. And that guys is divine. The hope is : Elena to choose him after she will became human.

Ur crazy. Caroline and klaus are te best thing since sliced bread. And elenas getting annoying. I think Katherine is a much better character. Honestly, i used to ship damon and elena like crazy, but im getting sick of this whole, ‘im in love with stefan, no im not, but maybe i am, oh ill just go screw damon’. So basically, the only reason im watching this show is becuase of klaus and caroline. Still just a tv show, so…

So is this really what Shane has said…Silas was buried with the cure so he could choose to die. He didn’t take the cure so the witch made a group of five hunters to kill vampires until they could find Silas’s burial spot, raise him and force him to take the cure? With sacrifices? Or were they fail safes if someone was stupid enough to raise him? Okay, perhaps the writers are confusing themselves now. LOL
What I took away from this episode. 1. Someone will probably need to lose at least two liters of blood. 2. It sounds like only a cure for one person. I say save it, because you will need it if…3. It sounds like the real cure needs a leap of faith. You have to believe that Silas will raise the dead. Now that might be the actual cure. You die…become a ghost…and are brought back not a vampire. What you are,who knows…but you are not a vampire.

Does anyone else think that professor Shane hypnotized damon when they were in the cabin…bc when damon and elena had their heart to heart about the cure he said the exact same words Shane was manipulating to him…hmm just a theory

Possible. All season has been about free will. Tyler wanted to break sire bond. I still think Pastor was hypnotized to kill those people even if Shane said otherwise. April practically had her brain scrambled she was compelled so much. Bonnie seems hynotized. Elena has a sire bond. Damon compelled by Kol to kill Jeremy. Free will has been a VERY big deal this season.

Meh! Is anyone else tired of the ship wars and fans at each others throats. The story is becoming silly, full of holes, and it’s like they alternate/play with shippers each week. Good luck on pulling that for another three years. I’m DE but close to walking away.

I never trusted Shane and we know Damon never trusted Shane either. I don’t think Damon wants to get his hopes up because he knows it’s not going to work. And if it doesn work he is afraid Elena will be back to where she was before, loving Stefan. If it was possible, they would have done it a long time ago. Shane never meant for anyone to get anything. He just wants to bring his dead wife back to life. He doesn’t care who he screws or kills to get that. Frankly if I were Elena, I would say “if Damon isn’t taking the cure, I don’t want it. My life is with him now.” That would really piss Stefan off. But, she should stay with the man she loves.

I agree. I think the show will take reversal mode where they all find out something about the cure and don’t want to take it, But Damon will be the one who does take it for a sacrifice or something like that. Damon should be the one to take it because he doesnt want it. And it will show how much he loves Elena in some twisted way. Maybe taking the cure may save Jeremys life or something I dunno. We will see how it all folds out. But I do see them mentioning A LOT that Damon does not want it. And he apparently is the only one. It’s easier to have 1 vampire take it instead of all of them getting the cure and then there is only Damon left as a vampire. What fun would that be anyway.
