The pure emotion in Damon's voice...
You could tell that was all Ian. Whenever Damon shows emotion with Elena, Stefan, or anyone, his voice sounds strained, and it’s very similar to his voice when he’s angry.
For example, remember when Jeremy told Damon Bonnie was dead, and Damon said “Dammit, Jeremy!” in that croaky, tight-throated voice? Personally, I always thought that it was overacting on Ian’s part, but this was different, this time I was blown away.
The emotion is subtle, but it’s palpable and stunningly honest. When’s the last time Damon was honest about his heartbreak with anyone, including Elena?
Just… yes. I’m so, so, SO (!!!) glad that the writers aren’t sweeping this under the rug, not this time. Damon addressing that he misses Bonnie is the healthiest thing he has done for himself in a while.
Bonnie makes him a better person leave me here to die
Now excuse me while I go break the replay button and cry myself to sleep.
