It’s time to look back on the last eight years of Delena and see what epic moments they had together.
It wasn’t always epic kisses and declarations of love between these two. No, these two had a rocky road to romance. Elena didn’t always see Damon as the good guy, a guy that she could love forever, someone she saw a future with. Instead she saw someone that was selfish, murderess and hateful, but that all changed. Elena brought out the good in him, he wanted to change, he had be worthy of Elena.
Elena soon saw the good in Damon. Villains, siblings and romance problems brought them closer together. Elena could no longer deny her feelings for Damon and, well we all know Damon’s loved her since season one.
As their relationship blossomed, and they hit some rocky road along the way, it sure made some great moments. Here are out top 10 Delena moments.
