Elena and Damon. Warning comments now contain spoilers from the books. Unintentional but still...


Don't know if it's just me picking up on this but it seems like Damon softened (slightly) towards Elena when she said 'I'm sorry about Katherine'. Especially in that last scene when he was stroking her cheek. Their scene in the kitchen was the first time it looked like his smile was genuine and not melacious. Maybe I'm just wishful thinking...


Maybe she'll eventually bring out some good in him???


But I have been thinking...why would Stephan feel it was necessary that he 'has to know her' a.k.a Elena if it was Damon who loved Katherine? I'm getting confused.


Hmmm....

They both loved her, and when she saw that, she killed herself so they wouldn't have anything to fight over and could just be brothers instead of enemies.... Her plan didn't really work though!

Katherine was the vampire both brothers fell in love with as humans. They forced her to choose between them, but she instead decided to turn them both in hopes that all three of them could continue on happily together. Her plan backfired, causing Damon and Stephan to resent each other even more. So Katherine "killed herself" (I use the term lightly because we later find out it was a fake suicide, though I have no idea if the show will take the same plot as the books) in hopes that the two would unite. Instead, they literally kill each other over her, then due to the blood exchange with Katherine, rise as complete vampires.
Stephan is initially drawn to Elena because she reminds him of Katherine, as the two girls are very similar in looks. Damon wants Elena because she is Stephan's, just as he wanted Katherine because Stephan loved her first.

So I'm guessing this was a book series????
Hmm Katherine kind of sounds like an idiot. Oh and how did Stephen hide the fact that he didn't eat anything at their dinner. Or maybe Vampires eat in this show?? Grrr so much that still needs to be explained. Mind you I kind of like Damon a bit more than Stephen. He has more personality.
Also what is special about the necklace that means Elena can't be subjected to Damon's 'charm'???
Can't wait till next week :P

The necklace contains vervain. It's a type of herb ( mentioned in episode )So, Damon can't hypnotize her.The book is a series:1. The Awakening2. The Struggle3. The Fury4. Dark ReunionThen there's a whole new series where the main character is just Damon.

First off, I'm sorry if anybody feels I spoiled the show. It wasn't my intention. I was simply trying to answer the question the best I could, and my only knowledge happened to stem from the book series. In all honesty, I have no foresight as to what will happen on the show. Just because there are books, doesn't mean the show will follow the same story lines. In fact, I'm rather certain it will not. There are already so many aspect that are completely different (i.e. in the books Stephan and Damon were much older than a century, as they lived and were turned in the 1400s during Renaissance Italy; I also have a hard time getting past Elena having a 15-year-old brother rather than a 4-year-old sister; even Tanner's death was way different in the episode than the book; etc.). Many of the events of the books really wouldn't make sense for the show, so I am just treating the show as independent from the books.
For those watching the series on TV who haven't read the books, I definitely recommend them despite all the changes. They are some of my favorite books of all time. The first four books (listed in the post above) were originally published in 1991 (I was 7 then!) and have recently been re-released (upon which I bought them and read them shortly before the show began). There is a brand new fifth book out now (which is part of a new trilogy) titled The Return: Nighfall. The next book will be out in February.
Once again, my apologies to anyone upset with me for what I wrote. It really wasn't my intent to spoil anything!
P.S. Vamps can eat human food, though it doesn't do anything to sustain them. If you remember Spike in Buffy, he loved buffalo wings and onion blossoms. :D

I agree with you buffster the plot to the tv series is soo different from the books, I also am trying to think of them as being two completely independent works of fiction. Not to say i don't like the show thus far, though It's definitely not anything like what I thought it would be.
I read the books way back when I was in high school and yet again just before the tv series began, they are definitely a worthwhile read. Its become clear the plot of the show is going to branch farther and farther away from that of the books and I can't wait to see what will happen next!

I really have enjoyed this show... I'm completely addicted and since my dad got direct tv and our local cable has some dumb deal with cw ive been watching on the internet because we cant get cw shows otherwise... anyways because of that i missed the first 4 shows but I sat down and watched them all then i went online and spent this last week reading all 5 books... soooo good... and the books really are different in so many ways from the show like for instance Bonnie was a little curly red head with brown eyes that was a disendant from the Irish druids... and in the show shes been morphed into a combo of the book Bonnie as well as meredith... it should be interesting to see how they end up introducing and portraying meredith in the show... I wish i could justsit down and keep watching the show because all i want is to know more... ive just enjoyed the show and books so much i cant wait till thursday or february
While they are vastly differnt they are both enjoyable and make for a good read and an entertaining show... its like the others said they kind of stand alone and thats fine with me as long as it remains as amazing as it is...
