Damon/Elena, The rest of the story (Season 01, Episode 20, "Blood Brothers")
I didn't even realize until recently why "Blood Brothers" has the ability to annoy me despite how truly awesome most of the episode is. And then it hit me during a discussion with redbrunja in my current Ten Favorite Episodes post. The sad thing is that the scene starts out so promising, but then ugh, it just devolves into me seeing red!
Damon just shared a deeply emotional, clearly painful moment of his history -- something he's likely never told anyone before -- with Elena, and she shows not a single, solitary whit of concern for him. Nothing. Not even a "Damon, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry that that happened to you, but if Stefan is thinking of that ... I have to go." Yes, she still would have been all about Stefan -- which is perfectly understandable -- but she would have at least taken the five seconds it would take to acknowledge what a terrible thing Damon just shared. Instead, she's all oh!noes! I must go save emo!Stefan from himself, never mind that Damon just revealed a horrible, devastating secret. And then furthermore, she gets pissy with Damon. PISSY WITH HIM! In *that* moment. Ugh, Elena! Frankly, that pissed me off. And Elena rarely pisses me off so that just made it worse. :(
