'The Vampire Diaries': Elena's sire bond causes Stefan and Damon to clash

the-vampire-diaries-408-damon-flashback.jpgYou've all had some time to process this week's "Vampire Diaries" episode, in which Damon and Elena finally slept together... just as it was revealed that Elena is sired to Damon, and there's a supernatural bond imploring her to do as he pleases. Uh-oh.

In this new clip from next week's episode, "We'll Always Have Bourbon Street," Damon is pretty incredulous when Stefan tells him about the sire bond. "That is the most pathetic nonsense I've ever heard coming out of your mouth, and you've said some crap in your day," Damon says. "I've finally got Elena to a good place about being a vampire, and you two idiots can't stand that she's happy because of me."

Stefan has a plan to prove whether or not there's a sire bond, though. Elena hasn't been able to drink blood unless it's warm, human blood, straight from a vein. Stefan's theory is that Elena's body has been rejecting the blood bags because she's sired to Damon, and Damon told her she should drink from a human. According to Stefan's theory, if Damon tells Elena he'll be happy if she can drink from a blood bag, then she should be able to do it.

"Look, just ask her to drink from a blood bag. Make sure you tell her how happy you'll be if it works, and if I'm wrong, I'll be the first to apologize," Stefan says.

Damon wants Stefan's apology to be pretty epic if he's wrong. But we have a feeling that he's right.
