“Remember when we said that an early episode will reveal that Elena and Stefan are forever linked?” TV Guide asked its readers in its weekly TV Scoop column. “Well, consider this: We have a sneaking suspicion that Silas' first love looks an awful lot like Elena.”
Yowza! We had a theory that Silas’ epic love might be the original Petrova doppelganger, but you never can tell on this show. This would explain the psychic connection Elena shares with Stefan, making them both descendant doppelgangers from two people who were madly in love. If you recall, Silas wanted to turn his epic love immortal, but a jealous and betrayed Qetsiyah killed Silas’ love and buried Silas in that tomb where he stayed for thousands of years rather than take the cure and join Qetsiyah on The Other Side.
We can just imagine how Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is going to take the news that Elena and Stefan are part of some of millennia-long epic love story. He was having trouble dealing with the psychic connection and Elena’s dreams about Stefan. Poor vamp.
