Thursdays 8:00 PM on The CW



But you DO Realize that what you are saying bassically means that "Elena for all we care could have been a chair,  a ring, an amulet or a statue and nothing would change".


See, thats the problem with Elena. She does not get personality or character development or awesome scenes or ANY chances to exhibit anything else but "i care a lot about you all".


I mean, her "want to be normal" speech in 2x20? Sure Nina acted the hell out of that scene, but I could care less. Why? For same reason I could care less about Matt's I wanna be normal speech - WE NEVER SAW THAT PART OF THEIR LIFE ENOUGH. Why does Elena want to be normal? What does she do? Is she still going to school or does she only show up at various themed dances and Alaric classes now? DOES she have any sort of personal life she wants to cling on to?As it stands now Elena's life consists of standing in boarding house and saying how she cares about everyone and how it all will be alright.


She HAS potential(as shown by roadtrips with Damon, both the carcrash one in s1 and university one in s2), but the show is hellbent on NOT giving her anything awesome, interesting or relevant to do and the show is also hellbent on NOT giving her scenes where she could show any aspect of personality that does not have anything to do with sitting and caring.


Katherine is more popular because she displays a VERY wide spectre of emotions. She is no buffy summers, but she certainly displays a very wide range of different opinions, intents, goals, likes, etc.  And even then writers seem to be intent on sidelining her to the usual "she betrays everyone"(example: entire Know Thy Enemy episode) mode instead of giving her character interactions.

i agree! elena could be more fun and all that. i'm just saying that the show needs her. not like vanessa in gg that she is gone and we didn't even notice. without elena there is no tvd. but like you said her character needs some development and i'm sure the writters know that and hopefully we'll see that happen is season 3. i completely trust the writters.

It will either be:

A) Elena is finaly signifficant to the plot, actually display spersonality and gets character development.




B) Elena spends entire season 3 sitting and caring about Stefan while Damon is off trying to rescue him.

i think in season 3 elena will try to find out what the kiss meant and if she has feelings for damon. she also will try to save stefan but in the process will come closer to damon and she will feel guilt.

If she was more simikliar to book elena she'd be a better charactyer to watch. Book Elena was a cross between Katherine and the show Elena. Overall a more compelling character

Book Elena = Less-Sociopathic-TV-Show-Katherine + Buffy from BtVS.

I ship Damon with Katherine magnitudes more than I ever shipped Damon with Elena; part of that is Katherine's superiority as a written, complex and fictitious being, another part is how much more intense and meaningful their connection is. Katherine us my favorite character on the show bar none.

Katherine and Damon are both damaged characters that can work out

That is only because we can connect more with Katherine than we can with Elena.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
