We only had two Delena kisses before Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness,” which is not nearly enough for a comparative study. Each time Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) have locked lips, the acts have become more passionate and intense. But just because their motel makeout was the most fevered, it doesn’t necessarily make it the best. Let’s revisit them, shall we?
Kiss the first
In Season 2, Episode 22, “As I Lay Dying,” Elena said goodbye to Damon, who was close to death, with a sweet kiss. A little sweaty, but Elena does like her men pale.
Kiss the second
A harrowing day in Mystic Falls in Season 3, Episode 10, “The New Deal” ends with Damon deciding he wants to feel guilty for kissing Elena. And that he did. All over the porch.
Kiss the third
While Damon initiated the last kiss, in Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness,” it was all Elena. Unsure of how she felt about Damon, she decided the best way to find out was to get down and dirty in a motel hallway.
