On the day of Sheriff Forbes’ funeral, Caroline has a lot to do — but can’t keep her mind off of Stefan. So much so that while Elena is helping her prep, she blurts out that they kissed! So, how did her bff, who’s also Stefan’s ex, react? Watch!
Well, when you kiss your BFF’s ex-bf, there’s going to be consequences! But let’s rewind a little here. To refresh your memory, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) finally shared that romantic, sunset kiss we’ve been waiting for all of Vampire Diaries. However, that romance got cut short by the news of her mother’s death, so she definitely had no time to think about what would come next.
‘Vampire Diaries’: Elena’s Reaction To Stefan & Caroline’s Kiss
“Welcome to the world of awkward sympathies. That’s why you have to be prepared with your responses. I would recommend at least three,” Elena (Nina Dobrev) tells Caroline in a new clip for The Vampire Diaries, trying to prep her for the funeral. Needless to say, she’s an expert at dealing with death these days.
“Your responses will be different for each category of people in your life — friendly circumstance, casual acquaintance, loved ones,” Elena continues, but Caroline interrupts her. “I kissed Stefan.”
Of course, Elena whips around to look at her, but surprisingly, she’s not angry — and Caroline’s not apologetic. She’s more just worried and can’t wait to ask him what’s going on with them. Naturally, she’s hesitant since “if it’s bad” she feels like he won’t tell her the truth, “at least not today.”
What Does Elena’s Reaction Mean?
Elena, like a good friend, just advises her to wait until tomorrow. She however, decides she needs to know.
I’ve got to say I’m shocked that Caroline wasn’t hesitant about telling her — did she know Elena wouldn’t care? Or that she’d at least not act like she cared on the day of the funeral? Or does Caroline really believe that Stefan’s completely out of Elena’s life? Well, regardless, props to Elena for being cool with it, or just being really good at pretending she was!
Also — just a side point: Caroline also dated Matt (Zach Roerig) after Elena. Sloppy seconds, much?
Watch the clip, then let us know your thoughts!
