The entire aspect of the story is a amor triangle. It’s not just centered around Stefan and Elena. It’s Stefan, Elena, and Damon. So yes, Stelena and Delena people, you will ALL have your ship moments.
So don’t get suckered into thinking you’re watching something with any deeper meaning. True Blood is just a soap opera. And when it comes to the show that has thought about its mythos more, Diaries blows Blood out of the water.
