Quote stjarna:Quote sharon n nick 4eva:Quote XPac: Yeah. Even though I'm not certain the triangle will ever completely go away at least until the show is near it's end (because the show essentially is built on it), I do think Stefan lost a LOT of ground here regardless of how things turned out.
I think a point overlooked by a LOT of characters is that Stefan was actually the one that broke up with Elena. If you look at the break up, he's the one that flat out says that he couldn't take it anymore. Elena, even though she was sired, still chose to try and be with him... he walked away.
And that's going to put a very serious chick even in any future relationships they may have. Again, in the least it puts Damon and Stefan on equal footing, whereas prior to this season I think even the hardcore Damon/Elena fans would admit that Stefan was the more likely person for Elena to choose when he wasn't ripper Stefan.
Course, there's still a chance for the writers to have Damon do something which equally sabotages his chances with Elena. Writers do tend to have Damon do that from time to time when things go in his favor. We'll see.
Elena of all people should not be surprise that Damon does something bad, it is some what expected of him.
Yes they did redeem him, but he would not be Damon if he was ALL good.
Like you said they can used that as a way out, for Elena. >(
Damon is on the redemption trip, imo, but far for being really reedemed!!! He is the bad boy- she will either accept it or not- if she tries to reform him - not gonna happen- cos you either love him or you don't- now will that become an issue with Elena- we know from other shows what happens when you do not see person's true colours?! ;)
I am not saying she is doing it or will do it- it's a maybe- but we know how Elena really is- she wants things to be correct?! Or maybe I haven't got it right at all?
These are just some of my musings....
Whatever happens- no to Stelena again!
I think you have it right.
Elean of all people should know Damon's true colors. She has been trying to redeem him "some what" since the beginning of the show.
I think Elena really is attracted to Damon because he challenges her. He may love her, but in no way is he going to let her do something that may get her hurt or even killed. Damon is right to the point. He says what is on his mind whether Elena agrees or not.
