Now that we know Stefan has destiny on his side, which brother will win Elena’s heart? Browse pics of both couplings and cast your vote!
The Vampire Diaries‘ Oct. 17 episode didn’t just expand the series’ mythology; it totally changed the dynamic of the show, propelling it from a simple vampire drama to a full-blown epic vampire love story. Learning that fate is working to reunite Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), and that Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is literally fighting everyone’s collective destiny by being with her, was a brilliant twist for this show. The romantic stakes have never been higher, and I’ve never been more unsure of where Elena’s feelings truly lie. (I mean where they currently lie, of course, because that girl flip-flops more than the footwear of the same name.)
Damon & Elena: Can They Successfully Challenge Fate?
Damon’s “you are my life” speech to Elena may be the couple’s most romantic moment to date, but it’s hardly the only one.
Who could forget the epic kiss they shared while Elena thought Damon was dying on the second season finale? Or the other epic kiss they shared at the motel in season
four [edit: season three], which literally sent sparks flying in every direction? And then there were those glorious months of sire-bonding, when Damon and Elena steamed up our screens each week with a roll in the sheets.
Elena seems on board with the whole ‘fighting fate’ thing, but there’s a funny thing about fate… it’s freakin’ fate!
Stefan & Elena: Will Destiny Prevail Once Again?
“Destiny has been trying to get the doppelgangers together forever.”
Tessa was pretty clear about the universe wanting to make ‘Stelena’ happen, and no matter which ship you sail on, you can’t deny the couple has shared some unforgettable scenes on the show thus far. From the first time they met — Elena’s “we have history” remark was more accurate than anyone knew — to the time she helped bring back Stefan’s humanity during his Ripper phase, those two have been through hell and back.
Stefan ultimately decided to call it quits midway through season four, but he’s clearly still in love with Elena, so now it’s up to fate whether or not the exes reunite.
