Well hello there:D!
i hav noticed, and hopefully a lot of you guys have to, that Elena, in the season change(and a little before that) became.. ..Wel a martyr. I first notcied it when Damon and Alaric rescued Stefan from the tomb vampires, and she wanted to go into the house, and kill herself. Then ever since, she have tried to "protect" everyone from vampires. In "Masquerade" she didn't accept Jeremy's ring although there was no risk for him at all. i know Stefan already stated hern to be a martyr, but still.
Is there any other who is seriously getting tired of her trying to find the easiest and baddest solution for the problem?
She continously tries to get her self killed. And she is really starting to pissing me off, especially since "Masquerade".
Any cons/pros for her stupid action,
What do you think about her being so martyish?
@Halde, thank you for posting this. I am at total agreement with you! Elena has really been frusrating me this season especially and toward the end of last season. It's as though she doesn't care how her death would impace so many others. it's kind of selfish, if you ask me, in a way. And I'm not sure if you agree wit this or not, but it seems as though in the last couple of episodes or so she's ordered/requested that both brothers do things for her. e.g. 'I want her out!" Or something like that in the house guest. Granted, Stefan and Damon may've wanted her out also. But seriously Elena, what's with you lately?><
I do agree.
And WTF is up with her being mad at Damon and Stefan for killing Elijah?
Him, the warlocks and werewolfs, and the rest of the town ofcause, is the only ones that know she lives..
They are the only ones who could possible get the word to Klaus.
Now he is dead, and she is mad for them going "behind her back" and killing Klaus.
"Ohh noes, you two layed waste to my plan of suicide;(("
It is, as already said on the show, to run away from everything, and basicly because she is giving up, as Stefan said.
And now, after Damon and Stefan removed all the problems with Klaus, she want everything to happen "her way"
I get Elena wanting to protect everyone...I would do the same....but the thing is, there's only so much that she can do...and she needs to try and sit down and relax...
I agree, she's got a very annoying on this season...
@Halde and TeamDamon4ever, your points are great and yet again I agree! It's almost as if (I'm not saying she does this intentionally), that she 'knows' Stefan (and now Damon) would do anything to keep her safe/anything that she saks them to do. e.g. wanting everything to go her way all the time. And I'm not saying Elena is as bad or worse than Katherine - but it reminds me of what Katherine said in Mascarade.
"Does Elena enjoy having both of you worship at her alter?"
Why yes, Katherine, i think I personally may somewhat agree with that...
I get why you guys think she's frustrating and I will admit that I like feel they're laying the whole martyr act on a little thick by having her constantly repeat the whole"I'd rather die than the people I love..." (or some variation of that).
I admire her selflessness though and she certainly put her money where her mouth is when she stabbed herself in 2x15. Furthermore, I think it's a very important character trait to highlight because it paints HUGE contrast between her and Katherine as Katherine's motto is "better you die than I," while Elena's seems to be "better I die than the people I love." BUT I think maybe they should downplay it a bit, perhaps less vocalizing??
it is a little annoying but if you think about it she just wants to protect the ones she loves. i would probably do the same thing. but i think that what she does is stupid because stefan and damon already have a plan and also we haven't seen klaus yet and we don't know what he is up to and elijah didn't hurt anyone. if the ones she loves start getting hurt then she should sacrifice herself imo.
