Bitchy isn’t an emotion — it’s an attitude. And it’s becoming a way of life for Elena (Nina Dobrev), as she proved in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You.” No one was safe; prom night marked the second best friend she’s tried to kill.
Love her or hate her, Elena’s mean moments were entertaining to watch. We’ve rounded up her cruel comments. Check ‘em out below!
Elena “helps” Rebekah (Claire Holt)
About Elijah’s human test: You’re gonna fail.
About prom: You realize you won’t even be able to compel yourself a date, right?
On Bex’s personality: Remember that time you tortured me until I told you how to find the cure, ruined my relationship with Stefan, and then you trapped us with a werewolf? ... You’re not a good person. You’re not gonna win this thing by being yourself, so just stand there and refrain from talking.
Elena’s nastiness with Bonnie (Kat Graham)
On amnesia: Hey Bonnie. Heard you got your mind wiped. That sucks.
On why the witch is no fun to have around: I thought you were going to bring Jeremy back but it turns out you were just a brainwashed crazy person. … So technically, you’re a walking reminder of all the horrible things that have happened to me.
What does Elena want? For you to stop being a problem.
*Chomp* The sound of Elena trying to eat the prom queen.
Elena gets bitchy with Damon (Ian Somerhalder)
About his age-inappropriateness: You’re over-age, and honestly, it’s kind of creepy.
On his value to her: You’re nothing to me, Damon.
Hitting where it hurts: I told you I loved you because I was sired to you, and now that I’m not, I know that none of it was real. But if you still think that it was, then maybe you’re the one who needs help with their emotions, not me.
Elena’s thoughts on Matt (Zach Roerig)
On his prospects: What are you gonna do? Get me a job at the Grill?
On Matt’s lack of supernatural power: Spare me Matt. If you were me, you would’ve shut off your emotions the second Vicki died.
Elena shuts down Stefan (Paul Wesley)
How does dancing make her feel? I feel nothing.
Her heart doesn’t remember? What heart?
Elena taunts Caroline (Candice Accola)
Elena flaunts “her” dress: So, how do I look?
On how Elena looks in the dress: I thought I’d do it a favor.
Elena assaults April Young (Grace Phipps)
On what April can and cannot do: You can’t be compelled, but you can be killed.
Elena teaches April a lesson: Remember when I told you to make Rebekah prom queen? … You should’ve listened.
*Bang* *Chomp* The sounds of Elena trying to kill April.
