Alright, how do I put this bluntly? That porch scene between Elena and the Salvatores was rank bullshit.
Elena is just starting to catch feelings for Damon. How the hell is she already stringing them along? You’re supposed to be working with Elena’s trajectory, writers, not yours or the viewers. What came out of Elena’s mouth was direct meta from the fans and Julie Plec.
That scene was all about the Salvatores, because Julie Plec is all about the Salvatores.
Is Elena supposed to be realizing she’s in love with Damon? Because I really haven’t gotten that from her. I’ve gotten lust and like.
“I know I’m being selfish.” I did not need that crap after Julie Plec Klaus berated her for tearing them apart. Make up your damn mind, writers! Is this Elena’s fault or is it not Elena’s fault? If it’s her fault, then why do you maintain on her doing it? Have her let them both go. Why does she want to put up with this? Why does she feel this is worth it? Why do you not want to write for Elena? Why is this triangle becoming so meta now that it’s really happening?
Am I really supposed to believe Elena feels for Damon as deeply as she does for Stefan? Already?
The words that came out of Elena’s mouth really did not sound like her. I’m not joking. That porch scene, on top of that scene with Klaus, was really set up to make her look like the bad guy. She’s in a lose-lose situation, and they don’t care. We just spent a scene talking about the Salvatore’s future (and we get another one later between just the two of them) and their stupid bond, when Elena’s relationship with Jeremy and Bonnie is marinating in the deepest, hottest level of hell, and she can’t be a good sister or a good friend to save her life because she must be stuck with the Salvatores.
So screeeeeewwwww the Salvatores and their future and their happiness and their simple as hell brotherhood, and their unhealthy feelings.
“60 yrs from now, none of this will have mattered.”
And scew the fangirl writers.
