I know that I began my last recap of The Vampire Diaries with "Oh my god," but... oh my god. The epic Delena moment that we've all being waiting for finally happened. Damon told Elena how he felt about her -- and then he kissed her!
I love The Vampire Diaries. I don't just like it or even like like it, I full on 'I will have your hybrid babies' love it. Seriously, I haven't felt this way about a show since Veronica Mars (season one).

There's no reason why they can't find talented 18- to 20-year-old actors to play angst-ridden roles. It would make the stories that much more credible as the actors age in the course of the series length.
