Recap: 'The Vampire Diaries' - 'All My Children'
It seems we're entering the winter of Elena's discontent, or at the very least one hell of a romantic lull. Since she rejected Damon, he's quickly reverted back into bad guy mode, and though Stefan seems perilously close to becoming the Stefan we used to know, he's clinging to two ideas pretty fiercely -- that feelings are pain, and loving someone is just a bad idea for all involved when you're a bloodsucker. Even a minor spark with Matt never really got rekindled, so Elena is just going to have to go it alone -- as usual. It turns out having hot vampire brothers lust after you isn't so much fun after all.
