I don’t know if I’m actually delusional or if this is actually legitimate, but when I watched Dangerous Liasons I couldn’t help but notice that the SE porch scene (ugh) was shot from a different angle than the DE porch scenes.
Now, as we know, the porch is DE territory. Sacred. Therefore I was annoyed and insulted that SE was infringing upon what even Julie Plec has established as “Delena territory”. (Not quoting exactly but she has mentioned that many of their significant scenes have taken place there).
When I thought about why the camera angles were so weird, all of a sudden I realized that…it all comes down to the metaphor of home.
In the SE scene in 3x14, Elena LEFT her home to go OUTSIDE to talk to Stefan.
But with all the DE scenes, Damon is always bringing her back home. Always.
