Welcome back to Humor Nation. Elena Gilbert is one of the central characters in the Vampire Diaries. It was her epic love stories with the Salvatore brothers which drove the plot for the most part. Having lost both her parents, she was trying to overcome the tragedy when she met Stefan and fell in love with him. Soon, she came to discover about the existence of all sorts of Supernatural creatures around us. But that was not all, soon we learned that Elena is not an ordinary human, she is a Petrova Doppelganger and her blood carries magical properties.
Elena became the prime target of Klaus Mikaelson in Second 2 who planned to use her in a ritual to liberate his hybrid nature. Season 3 finale saw Elena becoming a vampire. She is a kind and compassionate character who cares a lot about her loved ones. She could also be vulnerable at times and often depicted as a damsel in distress who has been rescued by the Salvatores.
So Take A Look At 6 Interesting Things About Elena Gilbert That TVD Fans Might Not Know About
6. WAKING UP AS A HUMAN AFTER HAVING VAMPIRE BLOOD
Elena Gilbert is the only character in the entire TVD Universe who died having vampire blood in her system, but woke up as a human. Klaus needed a human Petrova in the Hybrid Ritual Sacrifice. As Elena was the only human Petrova alive in the existence, Klaus forced her to participate in the ritual. He drank the blood of loss and she died in front of Stefan Salvatore. As Damon had fed Elena his blood before she was sacrificed. But Elena awakens as a human and this is because Bonnie used a spell which bound the life of John Gilbert to hers. While Elena returned back to her life, John dies at the same instant. John wanted to be a good father to her after disappointing her numerous times. He told her that he will always love her.
5. ELENA VS ORIGINALS
While Elena may appear to a weak and fragile human, but she is a pretty strong woman. The Originals are one of the most powerful beings in the TVD Universe, the most powerful vampires. Everyone has heard their legends and they live in the shadows. It’s pretty difficult for anyone to stand their ground against an Original Vampire, forget about defeating them or neutralizing them. But you will be surprised to know that a mere human Elena Gilbert managed to neutralize three Original Vampires: Elijah, Mikael, and Rebekah.
Elena is also directly/indirectly responsible for the deaths of the three Original Vampires. Elena staked Finn Mikaelson with a normal stake to distract him while Matt Donovan staked Finn with a White Oak Stake. When Kol Mikaelson was going to cut off the arm of Jeremy with the Hunter’s tattoo, Elena intervened. She threw the White Oak Stake to Jeremy who staked Kol with it. And, as Elena’s life was linked with the Enhanced Original Alaric, her death also killed Alaric.
