2x18 (Elena looks rather accepting, doesn't she?)
So I've been considering posting this for a while, and with all the pessimism I've seen on here lately, I think it's about time I say it.
Now, all I hear lately is "ELENA TOTES DIDN'T REACT WELL ENOUGH TO DAMON'S 'I will always. choose. you' LIKE OMG!" and I just have to say something about that.
Listen, I know bạn may be frustrated, but I think honestly, that was a FANTASTIC reaction.
And bạn wanna know why?
IMMEDIATELY, I saw her face...
and bạn know what face she was making?
the same one from 2x8, 'Rose', when Damon told her he loved her.
There was a look of slight confusion, maybe even a little acceptance, and shock. But not shock in a bad way, shock as in...she could not have imagined Damon saying that, like in 2x8. She was startled bởi his pure, unbridled passion. Passion is NOT something Elena is used to, being with St. Stefan and all that...sorry, but that's just the way I see it. Stefan isn't very passionate, he's just too lovey and cheesy and a smidge boring...sorry!
But REALLY, I nearly screamed, because bạn know what happened with that scene?
All those feelings, all of the feelings from 2x08 from that moment Elena was compelled to forget?
They came back.
And bạn can TELL. I swear, she even looks at his freaking BED, as if saying
REALLY, Elena? "Goodnight, Damon"? Did bạn REALLY want to go to bed? hoặc was your mind on OTHER things...;)
Oh it's okay, Elena, we've ALL been there, that fantaisie when we look at Damon's bed, FINALLY you've reached that point.
I am BEYOND happy that scene played out like it did, because bạn could SEE it. They're just THAT good of actors.
Alright, that was all I needed to say, I just hope I reassured some people who were angered with the scene... :)
(oh, sidenote: Are any of bạn angry that Damon pointed out that Stefan doesn't do anything? I don't mean that to DEFEND Stefan, cause he DOESN'T do anything, but NOW he's gonna try to step up his game which pisses me off. Damn, cause now he's AWARE of it, I just wish he wasn't. And he remained that boring, useless...brooder. Alright, that is all!)
