The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 6 The Most Important Parts of “We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes”
By Tegan O’Rourke,
Everyone has gone mad over Elena and Stefan breaking up on the sixth installment of the season. But a lot of people including Elena should have seen it coming. And yes I am completely biased. I’ve been on Team Damon since before it became obvious he had feelings for Elena.
Just look at the history of the Salvatore Brothers, Damon was the one who pined for Katherine for over one hundred and fifty years not Stefan. Oh and remember how Stefan was compelled to ignore Kat’s vamp side, but Damon wasn’t he just accepted her as a vampire.
Stefan just doesn’t do vamper chicks. And there’s nothing wrong with that, Bonnie doesn’t date vamps either, it’s just a preference. I like how Stefan has a lot of self loathing; Paul Wesley has made a very compelling character, a vampire who hates vampires, fabulous!
It was clear to me this couldn’t last due to innocent Elena now being the kind of vamp who can only take it from the vein. Maybe if she was able to eat bunnies like Caroline it could have worked, but I doubt it.
The one thing that does miff me about the relationship ending is how Elena stood by Stefan and still had hope for their love even when Klaus had compelled him back to his Ripper side. Oh and she never gave him shit about being a ripper to begin with. She knew he was a bloodoholic and stayed with him anyway.
I think Elena’s feelings for Damon are a convenient excuse for Stefan to end the relationship. After all now he doesn’t have to admit to her that he just doesn’t love her unconditionally the way she loves or loved him. They grew apart, it happens.
And deep down Stefan knows the morbid truth about Elena, she is Katherine’s granddaughter and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Elena has the Petrova fire as they say and lets face it even as a mortal she was getting quite ballsy near the end, killing Ric to save him, that memory comes to mind.
I would like to see Stefan get hot and heavy with some of the other hotties on the show like Caroline, for some reason I think he doesn’t mind her being a vampire, because she can eat bunnies with him. But alas this may not work either since Caroline has a bit of the cunning in her as well.
Caroline was very convincing when her and Tyler had that spat at the Lockwood Mansion in front of Klaus. Then she met up with him at the Grille to keep him occupied while Stefan tried to rescue Elena. The best part of it which I think will put a real divide in her relationship with Tyler was her decision that it was ok to let Jeremy kill a hybrid to save Elena even though he was friends with Tyler.
Tyler made a good point Chris was their friend too why was it ok for him to die? Maybe Caroline needs a vamp that can make the hard decisions like oh I don’t know, Klaus! Maybe she’ll figure that out on her date with him. I couldn’t tell what Tyler was more pissed about Chris being the latest sacrifice or Caroline dating Klaus.
As for Jeremy, it will be interesting to see how far he goes with his new calling as a Vampire Hunter, especially since his Big Sis is now the hottest new vamp in town. And I thought the holidays with my family were rough. How are the Gilberts going to get through this one?
