“Damon sort of got the girl, he’s feeling pretty good about that. But it’s Mystic Falls and no one can be happy for very long. I’m imagining for as much happiness as Damon’s gonna get, he’s gonna get equal parts dark. I don’t typically look at it as story arcs or even from the character’s standpoint, i look at it from a writing’s standpoint. I’m looking forward to the valleys and peaks.”
