In this first clip from the upcoming CW show, The Vampire Diaries, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) has a monologue where she tries to convince herself she will no longer be that girl that lost her parents, but to reinvent herself. Very powerful stuff.

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

He's your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.

Klaus [to Caroline]
