-Klaus on Stefan and Elena.
I just wanted to say that this scene of Stefan-Elena -Klaus stood out for me in the entire episode ( besides Damon's sensitive promise to Elena at the end). Someone as supposedly diabolical as Klaus seemed astounded that inspite of being a monster neck deep in blood of innocent people, Stefan's dead heart beats for Elena. Stefan is compelled, ordered, enslaved , on remote control and yet he fights himself with all that he has left to save Elena from himself. Stefan is not Stefan anymore but he is still Elena's Stefan. Klaus looked so frustrated and ready to kill when Stefan refused to obey him and turn off his feelings. He had to literally pin Stefan to a wall and look into his eyes to control him.
More than feeling bad for Stefan and Elena as star crossed lovers , you feel bad for Stefan as a person. All said and done, he doesn't deserve the shit that is happening to him. He deserves to be loved and taken away from this darkness. He deserves to be taken back into the wings of Damon and Elena. He was a very disturbing sight to watch in that gym when Klaus literally emotionally and psychologically tortured him in front of Elena. PW is a terrific actor and he moved that scene. Its good that Elena saw with her own eyes what is happening with Stefan and just why he cannot come back.
It was depressing. It really was. As much as am in love with Klaus, i wish Damon just pulls his heart out and takes away his little brother away from this living hell where he even breathes only because Klaus allows him to.
Love and luck always,
GOD bless everyone.
Lovely lovely analysis Pocu!
Even at his darkest, worst, most dangerous self, Stefan fights, and he fights just for Elena. He doesn't care whether he can return to the Stefan Elena knew, but he'll still protect her no matter what. He's been compelled to feed on her, and that Stefan inside him makes him fight the urge, Elena makes him fight that side, which unfortunately is a part of his very being. His love for Elena is stronger than the thirst for blood, and that keeps the Stefan we all love alive inside Ripper Stefan.
Despite the fact that Klaus wants to control every move of Stefan's, take him away from everyone he loves, he just CANNOT kill that Stefan, and he cannot get that love out of his heart.
And yeah, in all this it's Stefan who's suffering the most. Cause he has no one, he doesn't even know whether he'll ever be able to return, and he has to face that side of himself everyday, that he hates the most.. He's getting all this crap for just protecting the ones he loves absolutely selflessly.
It was one of the saddest episodes of TVD as a whole, the scene in the gym just makes you cry when you see Stefan struggling to save Elena, and that too from himself. He wants to save her, but it's so unfortunate that it's from him that she needs to be saved. PW is just phenomenal, and simply brilliant as Stefan. There's nobody as perfect as him when it comes to portraying such a diverse range of emotions. His eyes just speak volumes, even without dialogues.
