Then, when Elena and the Salvatores went to Bonnie and asked for her help in de-spelling the magical device that would reveal and incapacitate every supernatural creature in town, Bonnie only pretended to do it. This was the single event that drove every element of the first-season finale: Damon’s near-death in the fire, Stefan’s decision to rescue Is it just me, or does Mystic Falls High School have the most lenient attendance requirements of any school ever? Nobody seems overly concerned when Bonnie and Stefan skip entire months of class at a go.

Elena, on the other hand, barely even seemed to care. And there was definitely a hint of sexual tension between the two at other times—like when Stefan saved a bikiniclad Bonnie from burning up in one of her pyrokinetic trances, or the way she smiled at him when he told her about how her Salem Witch ancestors were “heroic examples of individualism and non-conformity” (“Friday Night Bites,” 1-3).
