    I find it funny that Elena is embarrassed and shocked seeing Damon nude. However, we all know this isn’t the first time Nina saw Ian’s big (hopefully) friend down there lol….

    this scene is ridiculous…. are they really going to do this delena thing??? so she’s going to lay down the two brothers??? she’s a *****! and that would be even more ridiculous if after that she goes back to stefan….I guess they want to please the fans but come on……….this is vampire diaries not gossip girl

    Damon is just so sleazy. I agree with what someone else said about if they have Delena happen in the show it would ruin it.

    I will keep breaking the replay button until September arrives!! Yay!! Ponytail Elena!! Hopefully there’s more of that, then having more of her hair down! Hopefully she styles it or something, making it less boring! lol! Not that it is or anything!! haha! I adore her tank top! I love her reaction when she see’s that Damon is naked! As for Damon, the hair is bringing back S1 memories, not loving that much!! I mean it’s okay it’s just not sexy as it was in S2, I’m kind of poed about that! I love his smirk, I missed that!! But what I missed more, was his sexy, hot & amazing wet, bubbly body! I just wanna lick his abs!! lol! (; I’m guessing Elena is living in the boarding house? But what about Jer we can’t forget about him! Is Alaric living at Jenna’s House? Or maybe he’s staying with Bonnie? Elena living at boarding house + Damon = Sexy Quality Time leaving out the S word (Stefan). I’m so excited, I can’t wait for S3, I’m mostly looking forward to seeing Damon & Elena together & Jeremy seeing ghosts as well as Elena’s bday!

    I thought the whole naked covered with bubbles scene would be hot but he looks ridiculous lol. Delena is inevitable but once she goes there they better NOT have her go back to Stefan because that wouldn’t be cool at all. Way to respect your brother’s relationship there Damon.

    I think this is the beginning of the end for the show!

    nick Says:

    cause they’re on their way for delena and it should not happen, the show is gonna lose its class and become a stupid thing for teens…It’s going to suck

    Poooooooooor Nina…seeing Ian naked. I feel sorry for her…NOT!
    OMG I kinda of hate her, cause she’s so lucky!

    Mandy Says:

    @nick: Oh please. A ridiculously large majority of the show’s viewers are fans of both Delena and Damon. If the show steered more towards Delena (for once) it would be a positive thing because guess what? The Vampire Diaries is about a love TRIANGLE. It is about the torn relationship between Elena and BOTH the Salvatore brothers. Not just Stefan. You can’t have a love triangle if Elena just stays with Stefan. This show is based on the triangle and if there was no exploration, there would be no triangle. Ergo, cueing the Delena pairing.

    Mandy Says:

    @lili: Like I said to Nick, the show’s about a love triangle. It wouldn’t be a triangle if there weren’t multiple love interests. Also, Nina Dobrev has already made it clear Elena’s not going to give in to Damon that easily. Just because they had one little kiss doesn’t mean she’s flung herself into each other’s arms.

    Kis Says:

    I am living for Damon and Elena. Damon is so hot. He has been my guy from the start. I like some more of that charme he has in his smile and when he is feeling great saying Hey “Im a superior hot choice” I like him to walk on sunshine. And to give him that he needs Elenas love. SO… lets have some of that . Damon and elena alone together in the house. I just cant wait for season 3.

    THABZA Says:

    I realy don’t like the idea of Damond and Elena together. I’ll like to see this two team up and try to find Stefan,Remember Damon vowed not to be selfish about his fellings for Elena she’s his brother’s galfriend. History shouldn’t repeat it self.

    Umm…. honey……
    The series is based after the book which goes with the same story line. The TV show maybe changed a bit, but they’re not going to completely go of story line…… Go read the books….. it helps you understand the story line more.

    meow Says:


    It’s following the story line from the book…. go read it and you will see that Elena has a Damon phase for a while. It’s supposed to be a contrast to what Katherine went through. Katherine excepts and loves all the attention she gets from both of them, while basking in how much she likes them. But Elena is fighting her feelings for Damon while trying to stay true to Stefan, which is where you she the contrast between the two……

    Go read the book and you will see that the directors are trying to follow the same story line as the book. Elena has a Damon phase in the book. Even though the show does it;s own thing, it still stays true to the authors story line.
