SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read this post or the comments until you’ve watched The Vampire Diaries episode 3.10, “The New Deal.”
The Vampire Diaries may only be an hour long show but the writers certainly know how to infuse plenty of oos and ahhs within each episode. And tonight’s episode was no different! From a paranoid Elena elevating her heart rate by casually sprinting around town to Klaus undaggering — then redaggering — poor Rebekah (whose homecoming dress looks remarkably spotless considering she’s been spent the last month face down in Dungeon de Salvatore) to Jeremy’s heartbreaking exit from Mystic Falls, episode 3.10 was rich in memorable moments!
Nevertheless, “The New Deal” scene stealer award goes to another unforgettable moment…one that Delena fans cheered their hearts over. Here are some clues: A porch. A longing. A kiss. Yes. That’s right. Damon Salvatore seized the night and the girl he’s been desiring ever since Vampire Diaries season 1 and he smooched her good! You could practically hear Elena’s heart thumping away: “He got that super bass / Boom, badoom, boom / Boom, badoom, boom bass Yeah that’s that super bass.”) Moreover, judging by the fire in his eyes and the way Elena’s hands ever-so-gently grazed his luscious, raven hair it seems like their kiss ignited some considerable fireworks.
Do note though, that as sweet as it was, this one kiss doesn’t necessarily mean that Damon and Elena are going to elope, raise Renesmee-esque cherubs, and live happily-ever-after. If there’s one thing to understand about Mystic Falls, it’s that everything is way more complicated than it initially seems. With Klaus on the prowl, Bonnie dreaming about coffins and haunted houses, and Stefan still brooding about (looking pretty damn delicious to say the least), there are more important issues at hand…issues that take priority over hookups. Additionally, unlike Katherine Pierce, Elena’s not so brazen about switching Salvatores. Believe it or not, it’s not her innermost desire to forge a reputation as a brother lover…just saying.
But the intimate moment that Damon and Elena shared tonight was memorable indeed and a much needed relief from all the pain and suffering that they usually endure. Even if it was just a lingering kiss on the lips and not a full on affair (think Katherine and Stefan cave sex dreams from season 2), it was sweet to see Delena experiencing a romantic minute or two.
Here’s to hoping that all the amazing Mystic Falls residents enjoy at least one equally knee-melting bliss on future episodes of Vampire Diaries season 3!
