We’ll never get tired of a good ol’ love triangle, and we’re pretty sure that’s the basis for today’s Vampire Diaries fan question: Who does Elena (Nina Dobrev) love?
Team Delena and Team Stelena fans are likely sharpening their fangs in anticipation for the answer to this question. Not that we blame them: This “love” stuff is serious business, and definitely means more than just a crush.
If we’re basing this answer off of the pure facts alone, here’s what we have:
1. Elena revealed to her BFFs Caroline (Candice Accola) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) that she thinks she’s falling in love with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) in Episode 8 of Season 4.
2. That “love” is arguably the result of Elena’s sire bond.
3. In the mid-season finale, Elena sits on a dock with Damon and remembers how in love she was with his brosef, Stefan (Paul Wesley), not too long ago. However, she says that love feels like a distant memory now.
With those three facts in mind, we’d like to reveal our answer to this question: Elena loves being in love, but right now, she’s not in love with anyone.
Fangs down, fans! Let us explain! At the moment, she’s no longer in love with Stefan — per fact number three — and she’s also not in love with Damon....yet. That’s per facts one and two. If anyone’s in love here it’s Damon and Stefan, two brothers who can’t get enough of loving Elena.
