Elena says, "You've 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 says, "Then STOP LOVING ME!" Elena: "I CAN'T." Damon says that's the problem. "We don't work." Elena says, "I know." Damon: "We agree. This has to end." Elena says, "It just did. It's over. We're over." Elena draws a deep breath. Damon stops to look at her and inhales. And then he grabs her face with his hands and swoops in for a kiss. Elena's hands find the back of his neck. The CW plays intrusive music. We all make-out.
Elena tears off Damon's shirt. I think they're in his bed, now. My 13-year-old son is wandering through the room. I don't want to embarrass him. They're on someone's bed. Damon's chest is bare now, and thank the heavens he's not a waxer. I'm sorry, but I find that unattractive. Damon rips off Elena's over-shirt. She's still wearing an under-tank. They're still trying to give one another Mono. Sex sex sex. Title card.
I'll be back with coverage of "Rescue Me." In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page, and then come on over to the forum, where we're trying not to suck.
