I HAVE SO MANY HEADCANONS FOR THE HOW AND THE WHY. THIS WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK IS NAUSEATING. THE EPISODE DATE HAS BEEN IN MY CALENDAR FOR MONTHS.
Her father. The man that was also so kind and gentle with her and Jer, the man that would read them bed times stories and all they had to do was simply pout before he’d cave. The cook of the household, and the loving husband and father. As member of the founding family, she had come to find out that he was a vampire hunter, but that was something she could accept a little more easily. There was reasoning of the safety of his family, of the town behind that choice, but to find out he experimented on them.
That he would brutally torture them just to get results for their tests on how vampires worked. It seemed so impossible, to think that there were so many things that had been hidden from her growing up. She remembered him spending so much time in the basement, but that was usual, or at least that was what they were led to believe. The man she had reached out for and said ‘I love you’ to in their final moments underneath the water, and the man that had begged Stefan to save her first instead of him. How could he be capable of such a evil thing?
She just couldn’t wrap her head around this fact, and she wouldn’t be satisfied until she knew more about it. However, she couldn’t help but to wonder what he would think of her now, especially since she had become a vampire. The very thing they had been trying to protect their daughter from all these years. Would he have it in him to torture her if she was laying on that table? Elena was extremely grateful that she would never have to find out, but still that didn’t ease the pain or worry of the situation.
“I….not doing to well, if I’m being honest, but I’m trying to push it to the side. There are bigger things going on right now that need my attention. Things like being poked and prodded like I’m undergoing some research by aliens.”
