Elena to Damon: It’s about us. It’s not just that we’re bad for each other. It’s just that when we’re together, we do bad things for each other. And I can’t live like that.


Damon: Katherine didn’t do this. I did! I thought you broke my heart, so I ripped open Aaron’s neck: THAT is how much control you have over me.

Elena: And I’m still here! That’s how much control you have over me!

Damon: Listen to us! This is toxic! We are in a toxic relationship, Elena! I just killed your friend and you find someone else to blame!

Elena: You want me to blame you? Easy! Done! You screwed up, Damon. Again!

Damon: Thank you!

Elena: You put me in a position where I have to defend you, again, where I have to bend my morals, again. Where I have to go against every single thing that I believe in, again, because I love you!

Damon: Then stop loving me!

Elena: I can’t!

Damon: Well, that’s the problem! We don’t work!

Elena: I know..

Damon: Then we agree? This has to end.

Elena: It just did. It’s over.. We’re over.

(They stand there and stare into each other’s eyes for a second, until Damon moves in to kiss her. They start ripping each other’s clothes off and head over to the bed)


Gossip Girl: The thing about new beginnings is that they require something else to end…
Some endings take a long time to reveal themselves, but when they do they’re almost too easy to ignore…
Some beginnings start so quietly you don’t even notice they’re happening. But most endings come when you least expect them. And what they portend is darker than you’ve ever imagined.
And not all beginnings are cause for celebration.
