The Vampire Diaries Debate About Elena and Damon's Relationship

Buzz Battle: Should Vampire Diaries's Elena and Damon Date?

It's been awhile since we've had a good Buzz Battle, but there just hasn't been anything particularly squabble worthy for the Buzz editors to dissect. That is, until now. Over the weekend we stumbled up on this photo of Elena and Damon of The Vampire Diaries looking awfully cozy in an upcoming episode. The sexual tension has been mounting for weeks now, but will the writers go for broke and finally solidify this brotherly love triangle? Let's go over the facts. Editor B will argue the pro side, Editor S the con. And away, we go!

  • Editor B: Elena and Stefan make a cute pair, but Elena and Damon really sizzle. Damon gets under her skin and brings out her firecracker side. Plus, Damon can keep her on her toes — and that's what makes for great television. We may always root for Elena to end up with the nice guy, but she and Damon have way hotter chemistry, which will give the show a big boost.
  • Editor S Counterpoint: It's way too soon! The show is only in its first season, so it would be TV shark-jumping suicide if the writers let Damon and Elena get together now. Maybe in two, three seasons from now they can consummate that tension, but for now, they need to keep building up this foundation.

To see the rest of the arguments (and pick the winner), just


  • Editor B: The drama on The Vampire Diaries has moved at a solid pace thus far, but we've yet to see Stefan really shaken to his core. So far the vampire with the heart of gold has done his fair share of ass-kicking when necessary, but we've yet to see what he's really capable of. I just know that under all those abs beats the heart of a bad boy — don't you want to see Stefan change it up a little?

  • Editor S Counterpoint: I'd love to see Stefan go all Angel on us, but you know it would never last. Once he goes back to being all nice-nice vampire Stefan, he'd just mope without his beloved Elena. And moping is pretty boring.
  • Editor B: Damon needs a girlfriend, stat. Sure it's fun to watch him dance around with sorority randos, but we've yet to see him meet his relationship match. Plus, once he starts dating Elena, it'll be perfect time for Katherine to finally make her return after all these years in hiding, which will lead to a whole new dimension of drama.
  • Editor S Counterpoint: I can't deny that I want to see Katherine (especially Nina Dobrev in an Eddie Murphy-like dual role, battling herself), but let's not kid ourselves: Damon and Elena would never last. They'd flame out fast, so it might as well come toward the end of the series, not now.

Time to pick a side: who's the winner of this Buzz battle? And what important points did we miss?

The dimension of charters is by far one of the best scrips and shows i have seen. however like many i am a fan of seeing Damon and Elana together. I am honestly not a fan of twilight and would not want to watch the same plot over again. Keep the dimension in characters. Shack up the story. when looking into the phyce of each charter. Damon has Pure Intentions, Yes Stephen is likable but he works off of gilt a lot and does good deeds only out of selfish reasoning ( to clear his own continence). with the story of how he twisted his brother to be a vampire with him it enables all likely hood of him taking it back witch gives Damon a higher character then Stephan. Damon does not do what he is expected to do, but still somehow makes things right. Stephan is a text book heroin but falls short on his own will and his own hypocrisy witch makes viewers doubt him just as much. Elena's character will be questioned if she "cheats" or blindly go's with Damon however i trust the the writers and editors to find the twists to work it out or to see everyone happy, besides the fun is in watching the story fold out.

omg wat is wrong with u ppl i mean stefan and elena have so much love within each other. u can see it in there eyes. i mean there is a reason that they keep coming back to each other. since damon has done some mean things to elena i dont think that they will b togeather in a long time. so i vote for stefan and elena

In my opinion, they would be a nice couple, but not now yet. I'm watching The Vampire diaries, almost just because of Damon, and i love scenes of him showing his love to someone (for example Elena), because he's so harmless and cute then :)

Let that tension build and build for a few more seasons! Everybody knows "the have is not as good as the want.". :)

Yes, Elena should date Damon but after watched last episode maybe she could give Elijah a shot too? I mean Stefan is boring and lately Damon is acting like a little spoiled kid compared to a noble man like Elijah! I think he will develop a crush for her as well.

There is great love chemistry shown in between Damon & Elena in Vampire Diaries episodes and i am sure they will go for date.
