Elena and a smooth- and bare-chested Damon make eyes across the room as Jeremy sleeps.He touches her hand and she runs out of the room, overcome with emotion. When he follows her, she kisses him passionately
Or…actually, he will be the one that stays gone. I predicted before that Damon would make the choice for Elena. I stand por that. He will tell Stefan to go back without him and be happy with Elena. He will do this because he loves them both
it's hard to deny what was said at the very beginning of the pilot -- this is his story. Elena will probably choose Damon at the end of the season, and she may choose Damon forever, but this has always felt like Stefan's story.
