What do you think?
Do you think that Damon and Stephan only like Elena because she looks like Katherine?
Now in the beginning of the show I would have to say that, yes, the reason why Stephan saved Elena and wanted to KNOW her was because she looked like Katherine. Damon I think is also attracted to the idea. Because imagine if a man walked into the room you were in and looked exactly like your dead boyfriend or whatever, but you knew it wasn't them. You knew nothing about them, but I bet somewhere deep down you would hope they could be them. It would sorta blow your mind. So I think in the beginning they only chased after her because she looked like Katherine, but now they know her better, they love her for who she is, not who she looks like. So it's both ways for me.
I think that they were obvious both curious about her because she looks so much like Katherine.
But once they got to know her, they realized she wasn't Katherine. Elena's personality is almost the exact opposite of Katherine's, so now they both like her for her.
I think that they were attracted physically to her because of the likeness initally. However, Stephan clearly seperated the two almost instantly, or so he claims, and likes her for being Elena, Damon on the other hand is still clinging onto Katherine. He sees her as a 'better' Katherine, imo, thats why he likes her, but i think he is only recently begining to seperate the two...I'm intrested to see his reaction to Katherine next season, and whether he cools on Elena or not?
