'The Vampire Diaries': Damon Vows To Help Elena Learn How To Be A Vampire (VIDEO)

A big part of these early episodes in "The Vampire Diaries" fourth season has been Elena learning how to be a vampire, and figuring out what kind of vampire she wants to be. But while she's torn between Stefan and Damon, maybe she's missing out on the best choice out there. As Stefan pointed out in the episode, Caroline is great at being a vampire. So why not have Caroline help Elena control her urges?

Instead, Elena has been feeding on her ex-boyfriend Matt -- with his permission -- and hiding virtually from her current boyfriend Stefan. Instead, she kept going to Damon when she needed help, and in the closing moment when she was ready to drain Matt dry, it was Damon who came to her aid. He even vowed to help teach her how to be a vampire.

TV Fanatic enjoyed the episode, but thought this move was a pretty blatant way for the writers to extend the love triangle between the three bloodsuckers. With Elena a vampire now, that love triangle can literally go on forever! It's a television network's dream scenario, right?

Keep up with "The Vampire Diaries" every Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
