Stefan and Damon thought Elena was feeling bad after the loss of her brother? If she ever gets her humanity turned back on, she may feel even worse about what she's done since then. It was certainly an unexpected development, but Elena has basically become the villain on "The Vampire Diaries."
This week, they found Katherine and with her came the cure. Ultimately, it wound up in Elijah's hands to do with as he saw fit. Would they use it to kill Klaus, give Rebekah the humanity she desperately wants, or give Elena the humanity she keeps railing against?
At the end of the episode, Elena explained to Damon and Stefan that there would be consequences if they continued to try and force her to take the cure against her will. Stefan spoke from the heart about how Elena never gave up on him when his own humanity was lost.
But rather than the response he was hoping for, she snapped the neck of their waitress. "Like I said, consequences," she said. "That’s one body you’re responsible for. If you keep trying to fix me, there’ll be a second, a twentieth and a hundredth ... it’s your choice."
This is going to be more difficult than they thought. "The Vampire Diaries" continues on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
