❝Well, the first question is, what does she feel, if anything? And who does she feel it for, if anything? And where does she stand with Damon? Poor Damon, the big, lingering question that he’s been feeling from the beginning is “Is this love that she feels for me real?” He doesn’t believe it’s real because he doesn’t believe he deserves it, and he doesn’t believe he can be happy, but he wants so desperately to know. Now we’re in a predicament where she’s not really feeling anything at all.❞
-Can Elena and Damon sustain any kind of romance with her humanity gone? Is that even on the table? [x]
Official Synopsis for 4x16 | Bring It On
THE NEW NORMAL — Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new outlook has everyone concerned, leading Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to agree that going back to the normal routine of high school would be the best thing for her. Caroline (Candice Accola) is pleasantly surprised when Elena decides to rejoin the cheerleading squad, but her pleasure turns to shock when Elena’s behavior proves dangerous. Not giving up on their search for the cure, Damon and Rebekah (Claire Holt) work together until his unwanted advice catches her off-guard. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) tries to use Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) to get the information he’s after and makes an intriguing discovery in the process. Meanwhile, a bored Elena throws a wild party and gets into an ugly fight. The episode was directed by Jesse Warn and written by Elisabeth R. Finch & Michael Narducci.
A lot of people seem to be in disagreement with the writers. Not so long ago we were told that the so-called “switch” that controls a vampires emotions was a myth. A lot of you are now relying on that fact for Elena. If the switch is a myth how could she turn it off even with Damon pulling a sirebond on her?
The problem is you’re forgetting the whole quote:
2x09 | Katerina:
Rose: It’s a lie, you know. There’s no switch you can turn off. Sure when you’re a newbie but after a couple of hundred years… you just have to pretend.
A lot of you seem to be forgetting that Elena is only a baby vamp. She’s only a couple months old- definitely NOT a couple hundred. The switch still works for her and with the added bonus of the sire bond willing her to flip it, there’s no doubt that she’s in deep. She doesn’t want to feel these things. It hurts too much. She has too much grief right now. She needs to put it aside until she’s ready but being a new vampire comes with overwhelming emotions, everything is heightened.
It won’t last long. Even Katherine who like Elena lost everyone she loved, her whole family, stated that it only lasts for so long before the need to feel fights its way back in and then it’s just a matter of letting it or living in denial.
And right now… Elena needs to keep it away until she’s ready to face it.
