I've been following the blogs for a while now and for the first time, I've decided to put in my two-cents here because I just don't agree with some of the comments about Elena and how she fessed up to Stefan:
I must disagree with those of you who took offense with how she phrased it and implied that she was being less than truthful. In her mind, the only confession to make to Stefan is the fact that she kissed Damon back. She feels guilty about having kissed back. Both of them knew that Damon loves her. There's no need to tell Stefan that Damon initiated the kiss. Stefan obviously knew immediately after Elena's confession that Damon did kiss her and hence he took a swing at Damon towards the end of the show. I'm not sure how others could've interpreted these series of events otherwise.
