"You’re a little late, aren’t you?"
Damon - Elena + Elijah - Katherine (First Meeting Parallels)
"The spin in the works here, is this little thing called Elena. She’s got more of a grasp on him that he understands. Or let me rephrase that, I think he knows precisely the kind of grasp she has on him. I’m sensing something unselfish surfacing in him, like a devotional kind of love.
It’s not just about being drawn to her, it’s about the need to protect her. That’s why I used the word devotional. A lot of people will read this and think that’s just Elijah’s desire to be with her. I don’t think it’s as simple as as that.” - Daniel Gillies
It’s like I said, love. You don’t have to worry about me.
