The Vampire Diaries season 3 is coming to an end with episode 22, “The Departed,” this Thursday, and part of the episode is going to be Elena doing something that’s been a long time coming: making a decision about Stefan and Damon.
Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 22 “The Departed” Spoilers
Who will she choose? That has yet to be revealed, but Nina Dobrev did talk to Zap2it about what Elena will be going through when she makes her choice: “Because of the circumstances, one of the Salvatores does leave town. When Elena does make the decision, she’s alone. She’s not with either brother. She’s taken away from that element of temptation, and away from the pressure, and she’s not forced to make an impulsive decision because they’re both standing in front of her. … Because she’s by herself, she can make the decision without being swayed by one or the other.” It is about time she makes her choice, and it’s a good thing she makes it when she’s aloneÂ—otherwise, there would be that question about whether or not she chose one way because of whom she was with at the time.
There are reasons for Elena to choose each vampire (and reasons for her not to), but in the end, she will be making a choice in The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale. That’s going to open up the chance to tell a whole new story in season 4 without the pesky love triangle getting in the way. After all this time, it is time for them to leave that behind and see what life is like for everyone after her choice. After all, it’s not just going to affect Elena. Damon and Stefan did decide that whichever one of them she doesn’t choose will be leaving town, which means Mystic Falls is in for some changes.
