I hope ya’ll are ready for this LOL
Okay so first of all sorry for clogging the tag. I’ll put half under a read more because it’s hella long.
Anyway some much needed season 7 Bamon/Damon/Bonnie meta
In light of the last few episodes where Damon has fallen victim to the writers retconning the hell out of DE and in turn making us all scratch our heads and side-eye him into next week (hows that for a run on sentence)… I had to try all throw some ice cold water at the torches and pitchforks. Some ridiculous lines about Elena has not damaged his character beyond repair.
Damon has actually not done much harm this season or in season 6 actually. There is a common dominator and I’ll let you guess who. Anyway lets do this in sections
Elena has ruined Damon once and for all
I know people are sick of the mentions. I know people wish the writers would let it go already. But to say his pining diminishes things he has done for Bonnie is baffling to me.
I have a question. In what universe do you treat a friend the same way you treat a significant other? No really why would Damon prioritize his best friend over his girlfriend before they are romantically involved with zero hesitation? Like zero percent. And I asked this pretty hypothetically because we have in fact seen Damon chose Bonnie like 5 times now.
But the hatred for Elena and mere mention of her name is so real I’ve seen people forgive Kai for abusing her physically and emotionally, forgive Jeremy for cheating on her with ghost, forgive Enzo for everything he done this season (more on that later)…but Damon mentions Elena one too many times and him being willing to die for her and choosing her so many times amounts to diddly squat.
There is also this insane notion about 1st loves and being a ~second choice~ that only applies to Damon somehow. Enzo definitely chose Lily over a single Bonnie who was flirting with him and telling him he deserved more. It happened. Does this automatically mean Bonnie is worth less now? Is Enzo worth less than Jeremy then? Is Elena worth less than Katherine in Damon’s eyes? Like what?
Damon was going to bat for Bonnie while Elena was alive let us not forget.
He hesitated between two women he loves but ultimately he always picks Bonnie. How is this a slight I don’t understand. I think the word Elena triggers people because I am baffled.
But wait there’s more…
