Elena has made her choice, and it's not the choice most fans of "The Vampire Diaries" would have expected. But then again, nothing about Elena has been expected since she got turned into a vampire. But could it all be part of an elaborate plan by Damon, or is it just a surprise connection that he hasn't even realized it yet.
It wasn't until the closing moments of the episode that Caroline figured it out and shared it with Stefan. She'd been putting together the puzzle pieces of why Elena seemed to always agree with Damon, even when it meant abruptly changing her mind. Somehow, as Damon was the one that turned her, Elena is now sired to Damon.
Earlier in the night, she'd had to move out of her house because Jeremy's new Hunter abilities is clouding his judgment -- he'd already tried to kill her once. When she moved in with the Salvatores, Stefan left, because she'd already told him she had to choose Damon.
So while Caroline was having her revelation, Elena and Damon were getting into bed together. It's a hook-up years in the making, but is it real? Does Damon know Elena is sired to him, and if so -- how horrible is that?
