Elena making her choice pisses me off. Not one thing in this episode led me to believe she was going to choose Damon, or Stefan for that matter. Listening to her lines and how to acted, I was led to believe that Elena was not going to make her choice in this episode.
In episode 20, yes, Damon was the one to make the plan to kill Matt to bring Elena’s humanity back. But when it did, she pushed Damon away, she wanted nothing to do with him and would listen to nothing he said. It was Stefan to make her focus on an emotion, the one she listened to as the emotions ran through her. Not Damon.
In episode 21, all Damon did for Elena was “keep her away from Katherine”, which he didn’t even do. After that, he ran around town with ghosty Alaric. Stefan, on the other hand, stopped her from killing Katherine and telling her that killing Katherine will not bring back Jeremy or make her happy again. He was, again, the one to help her with ranging her emotions. Not Damon.
And like every other finale, season 4 must end with Elena making a choice. In season 1, it was “Elena” kissing Damon. Season 2, Elena staying with the dying Damon while Stefan gambles for the cure to save his brother, with Elena giving the dying Damon a farewell kiss. Season 3, Elena choosing to see Stefan, who may be dying due to Klaus being killed, over Damon, who also may be dying due to Klaus being killed. So, ultimately, season 4 must have a choice between which brother.
Now, looking back at previous episodes, especially the recent ones, any fan would believe she was choosing Stefan, just by who is helping her with her vampirism more. Yet, there is still the sire bond dilemma, “Were her feelings just heighten from the sire bond? Or were they placed because that is what Damon wanted?” This question must be answered during the finale.
She chooses Damon. After telling him he is the worst choice she will make, he is her choice. But according to what has happen in more recent episodes, Stefan should’ve been her decision. Even JP is quoted to say that “Damon and Elena is not long lasting” and “Stefan and Elena are the end, they just have to get there.” So, does this mean the Stelena fandom must wait until season 5?
But here comes Silas, disguised as Elena. Hmmm, where does that lead us? Should the Delena fandom continue cheering or is it Stelena’s return?
The Stelena fan in me is betting everything she owns on that it was Silas who confessed to Damon.
The Stefan fan in me is wishing Stefan to get out of the box in the river and run far away from Mystic Falls and be happy, leaving this Silas shit to Damon and Elena.
The neutral watcher in me is believing that JP doesn’t know how to write a finale episode and just sent an entire fandom in a rampage, most likely losing many watchers for the bullshit this episode is made of.
The neutral watcher in me also wants to watch the last couple episodes again and analyze every line to figure out if anything in this season lead up to what this finale became.
