The past three episodes have shown Stefan & Rebekah’s development as a couple, both physically and emotionally. Who could possibly deny ‘Stebekah’ now?
When Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) called it quits on the Nov. 15 episode of The Vampire Diaries, some fans feared the sensitive Salvatore would never find happiness again. Little did they know, his perfect match — and ex-girlfriend, Rebekah (Claire Holt) — was just a dagger pull away! Allow me to explain why Stefan and Rebekah make a bloody good couple, and why I really hope they’re given a future together.
1. Their Sex Is Hot
Let’s begin where they began: the bedroom! Yes, I was a little shocked to see Stefan and Rebekah jumping into bed together on the Jan. 24 episode, but I was totally game once they got started. And even though they did it under the pretense of “no feelings, no attachments,” you knew they didn’t mean it. Come on, their sexual tension had been brewing for nearly a century!

2. Their Banter Is Feisty
I’ve used many words to describe Rebekah since her introduction last season: “bitchy,” “evil” and “heartless,” to name a few — but I never thought I’d find myself referring to the foxy Original as “adorable,” until the Feb. 7 episode. The scene between Stefan and Rebekah at the campfire was so sugary, I felt like I swallowed an entire packet of Fun Dip, and I mean that in a very good way.
Rebekah: Did you hear that? [She cluthes Stefan’s arm.] I swear this place is haunted!
Stefan: You’re crushing my arm.
Rebekah: OK, you caught me, I’m a scaredy cat.
Stefan: You do realize you’re an Original vampire, right?
Rebekah: Which is precisely why you should stop teasing me. … I’m very powerful.
Me-ow! I don’t think Stefan and Elena have ever shared such an effortlessly flirty scene together. Relive the fun below:
3. Their Happiness Is Real
Ignoring the fact that Stefan only took Rebekah to the ’80s dance to distract her on the Jan. 31 episode, you’ve got to admit, they were both really happy to be there. Not only was Stefan in his glory, reliving the awesome-ness of his favorite decade, but you could see how glad he was to be sharing it all with his newly reignited flame. He even told her she reminded him of Lexi (Arielle Kebbel), and we all know how much respect he had for her.
The next scene, when Stefan taught Rebekah the joys of hallway sliding, was also kind of adorable. Not only does she make him smile, but he brings out her secret fun side.
Even when they’re not jumping each other’s undead bones, Stefan and Rebekah are just happy to be around each other. See for yourself:
