Forget Enzo tricking everyone by turning Tripp into a vampire so he could die the moment he entered Mystic Falls. Forget finding out Jo is Kai’s sister and forget about Bonnie sending her teddy bear with her magic for Damon to find because tonight the ships sunk. They sunk so low it hurts. It hurts so much I want to talk about Delena and Steroline only.
“I would give anything for you to remember, but I’m not gonna risk your life. It’s the last thing I would ever do… even if you don’t remember that.” – Demon to Elena
Elena looks into Demon’s eyes and feels extremely guilty she doesn’t see what he sees. Elena feels like a huge piece of her is missing and that missing piece is her memory with Damon. She asks Damon to help her refresh her memory with some of their memories. Damon dances with her and tells her about their first dance. It failed. Elena asks Damon to takes her to the place she last said ‘I love you’ to him and he took her to the Mystic Falls border (because they can’t actually enter) and explains the night of the crash. That failed too. Damon tells her other memories, including “there is a motel ice machine in Denver that’s got some stories,” and a night where they went out to see a meteor shower the summer before she started college, a memory we weren’t familiar with yet, and it still failed.
Elena is really making the effort to remember. She wants to remember so badly she went into Mystic Falls for the compulsion to wear off and remember everything. Guess what? It sort of worked. Bits and pieces of their memories rushed through her mind and it all happened so fast she couldn’t grasp it all. Except for, “there were these stars, and it started to rain.”
Delena fans have been demanding for a Delena rain kiss for so long. I guess campaigning it as a World Trending topic on Twitter for Julie Plec to see worked because in tonight’s episode we got the perfect heartbreaking Delena rain kiss. It’s no wonder why Damon replayed this memory a thousand times. It was practically a marriage proposal! Elena wanted nothing more than to be with him forever.
The thing is, Elena already remembers a small piece of that memory. She just needs to somehow completely remember it all and I still believe she’ll remember everything with a kiss. So get with it Damon!
“She has a thing for you, mate” Enzo to Stefan
The cat is out of the bag and who would have guessed it would be Enzo to spill the beans.
After respecting Caroline’s wish to ignore it ever came up, Stefan needed to know how and why she had a thing for him to figure out how he missed it. So he asked her at the hospital and got what he wanted, even if it wasn’t what he wanted to hear. See the scene at the 1:25 mark in the video below.
Here’s what caught my attention. Stefan’s response, “No, I didn’t say that.” The boy did not deny if he’s ever had feelings about her. If anything, it looked like he was fighting back his feelings, possibly even the urge to kiss her because let’s be honest, he totally looked he wanted to kiss her. At least he should have. The scene should have ended with him running after her and then kiss her, except he didn’t. I hope it’s not because he’s scared to admit his feelings for her because Caroline just laid her heart out to him.
It took forever to get where Steroline is today. They started off as Stefan being her vampire mentor which lead to being friends. Next, they became best friends, then later the kind of best friends that could turn out to be something more. Right now, they’re going through an obstacle that would literally make or break what they have. When you’re just best friends, you can recover over anything, but when you’re best friends with feelings, you’re risking something you could lose forever. Caroline risked their friendship by admitting her feelings. If Stefan doesn’t admit he has feelings for her, I don’t think they’ll ever go back to what they used to have, and that would be a huge lost for everyone.
Damon’s best speeches to Elena:
“No matter how much I missed you or how much pain I was in, I never would have erased everything we ever had. Even if I was drowning in grief, I’d rather hang on to every moment that I ever held you, or every laugh I ever heard, every shed of happiness that we ever had. I would rather spend every moment in agony then erase the memory of you.”
“There’s just one little part of that story you’re missing, you got into the car with me. I was all ready to go, the door opens, and you jump in the car and say ‘We’re in this together’ and you’re not taking no for an answer. That was the moment I realized you’re the perfect girl for me, because you were just as crazy as I was”
“My favorite memory of us, the one I relived a million times over the last four months. It’s this summer night that we had before you went off to college, you wanted to show me this meteor shower, so, we drove around in the middle of nowhere and the moment those shooting stars started to fall, rain.. lots of rain”
