I think people are blind if they think Delena should be together. It's Stefan all the way. Just watch the first 2 seasons and you know that Stefan and Elena should be together always. Come on writers sort this out. Stellana all the way, they have an epic LOVE.

First of all, team Delena, awesome! And next, whats the deal with silas? I hope caroline and Klaus will still be on.

I think stefan deserve elina more than enyone stefan is loving caring and always try to protect everyone.

When they were talking about someone having to survive as a human, they obviously meant Katherine. Elena forced her to take the cure when they were having that huge fight in the high school, remember? It sucks/awesome that even though Stefan was just dumped, they made the finale even sadder and more shocking when Silas shoved him into the safe. I'm also glad that Bonnie will still be in the story line, and I can't wait to see her face when she realizes Silas is still alive and she died for nothing.

ohoh.Are you guys kidding me, team delena is perfect.

If you are in stefen's shoes how will you feel when Damon is dating Elena?, is too unfair of the writer to do this to stefen believe when i say this Damon love Elena far better than stefen...stefen is weak,overprotective and always want to make decisions for elena...what am expecting from season will be claus to take the cure, stefen and elena back together, claus and caroline, matt and rebecca and sillas to bring back rose for damon and jeremy and bonnie in love and so many more drama

I like Stefan and Elena together. I know that the writers are tryig to give Damon and Elena a chance because that's what some of the fans wanted. But Stefan saved his brother's life. He has done soo much! I'm a stelena fan. To be honest I think Elena and Stefan should get back together. Writers please dont make Caroline and Stefan fall in love. Or Katherine and Stefan in love! Also hopefully you bring back Bonnie and Stfan. Dont kill them off the show please!! I really hope that the writers will make ELena and Stefen back together! I mean they deserve to be together!! Im begging you writers!! PLEASE!
