I hate how elena says "i'd do anything to find the cure because lately I don't like the person I've become" and then she gets it at the end of season 4 and yeah she offers it to Stefan out of love BUT when he refuses to take it because he wants it for her, she doesn't take it because she wants to please damon and its like wtf? that was probably what you wanted most in the world and now you just gave it up? for damon? are you sure you ain't sired?
Yeah the show never actually portrays how Elena comes to accept being a vampire because she doesn’t because they bring it up again two freaking seasons later and give an SE plot to DE.
