Just like the Team Edward versus Team Jacob debate in "Twilight," there’s a battle that exists between fans of "The Vampire Diaries."
The Elena-Stefan-Damon love triangle has been an ongoing theme since fairly early on in the "Vampire Diaries" series. In this episode, upset over feeling as though she lost Stefan, Elena gets a little more chummy with Damon. And it wasn’t lost on the other characters.
“So you’re not, like, switching Salvatores are you?” Caroline asked Elena.
Meanwhile, Alaric is telling Damon: “I think you need to take a beat with Elena.”
Elena almost owns up to her feelings for Damon, after Caroline pushes her to admit that she cares about him.
“If I admit it, if I even thought it for just a second, what does that say about me?” she said.
Caroline tells Elena that makes her human — interesting, coming from a vampire.
But Elena is human, so naturally she wants to change Damon to fit more with what she wants. (Girls, when will we learn not to try to change a man?) But Damon tells Elena he’s not Stefan, so she should probably stop trying to turn him into him (yes, I know I probably picked the losing side).
This episode was fairly boring. It’s mid-season now, so we’re just being set up for what will hopefully be good stuff later on. Here are some other plot highlights:
