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.
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.
You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.
