Truthfully the moment this happened, I forgot everything else and made whimpering high-pitched animal sounds and fell face forward off my couch or threw myself or whatever (I was just really excited ok. I didn't think his return would be so soon or at all and I WAS SURE DAMON WOKE UP REBEKAH but in hindsight why the fuck would he do that? It would put Elena in more danger WHY AM I STILL RAMBLING):
elijah: so niklaus... what'd i miss?
ELIJAH LOOKS PIIIIISSSSSED. and classy. His hair is pretty great too, for coffin hair. But can you really expect any less from this perfectly coifed mother fucker? ANYWAY, WHAT ELSE HAPPENED IN THIS EPISODE?
Let's do quickies because I'm very restless today, to be honest:
(this is why I should write reactions the night of dammit)
#nothing #no reaction #just silence #sadness #acceptance #elena wasn't sure what to expect but it wasn't this #because there has always been a part of stefan #that believed this would happen #and it's not about how elena feels about damon #or how damon feels about her #it's about how stefan feels about himself
THIS ALWAYS JEALOUS SELFISH WONDERFUL ASSHOLE. (As a related note, remember the other night when he threw Matt needlessly against the wall before kidnapping Elena but after she was making flirty faces with her human boyfriend? Don't think I mentioned that, but yeah.)
Really can't argue that Elena's better than both of these serial-killing psychopath brothers, but my spider senses did a little twinge at "You're better than him."
Oh, Stefan. Your issues are showing. It's funny, this was the episode I was making ~oh no he didn't~ faces at my screen. The other week, with the bridge? I was NBD-ing because it just made sense with Stefan's desires. SELF-DESTRUCTING AND TEARING EVERYTHING HE'S "EARNED" HERE IN THIS ONE-PONY TOWN IN THREE, TWO...
But it seems in the light of actually "losing" Elena's love to someone else, Stefan becomes a green monster. I suppose this has a lot to do with it being Damon who is getting Elena kisses, though. You know, the asshole who doesn't deserve the love Stefan works so hard for but always gets it anyway, despite being an asshole.
AND THEN HE GOES HOME TO THEIR LOVELY ABODE AND SUCKER PUNCHES DAMON IN THE FACE. My emotions are ones of pure delight right now. These fucking idiots. Oh man. What a dick, right? Meanwhile Damon is just "welp knew that was coming." He's always setting up these kind of situations for himself. You know, I bet Damon would be really into dominatrixes. Elena, in leather, with a whip? RANDOM THOUGHT, I KNOW.
Meanwhile Elena is coming to terms with actually kissing Damon back or kissing Damon at all. She can keep it from herself, keep it from Bonnie, but she can't keep something like this from Stefan, no matter what he's become now, or whatever love there is lost between them. Her guilt of him not knowing but not because it happened. ALSDKAF;asf I couldn't help but wonder which kiss she was referring when she was telling Stefan -- but that doesn't really matter, does it? She wasn't confessing to kissing Damon, she was confessing to there being something between them.
IDK, THAT'S ALL I GOT. I'M TIRED NOW. Asides:
- I LOVE EVERYTHING.
- KLAUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. He knows ok. He knows all your feels, Stefan.
- DAMON LOVES ALARIC, THEY ARE SO GAY. ALARIC WAS PUMPING IRON GUYS, IT WAS HOT.
- Meredith Fell can stay because she gives Ric and Elena a reason to make googly eyes at each other while the cameras are unnervingly close to their faces and I'm wondering if they are going to make out.
- Why was Bonnie pleased Elena liked Damon's kissing prowess?
- So far on board with this Tyler business, although it's really dumb. It's super dumb. But I love it because it's dumb.
- Bill Forbes needs to get the fuck out. Really? Torturing your daughter was a mistake? You're going to make it up to her? REALLY?
