It's not just that Damon would've rather died than killing Jeremy, but Jeremy also couldn't kill Damon. Ugh, I can't


Jer was bad mouthing Damon in the beginning of the episode saying how Elena was foolish to trust him and then for him not to be able to kill Damon when the chance came, when Damon was compelled to kill him, it made my heart hurt. Jeremy see’s Damon as an older brother. They used to play video games together. He kept him safe. And when he realized that Damon had no intention of willingly hurting him, it just reminded him of all that. Sure, Damon barked orders and did things a little unconventionally, and he was dating his sister, but when the time came, Damon did everything he could to make sure Jeremy made it out alive- including taking on an Original.

When Elena says " You can't kiss me again" she lightly opens her mouth just to say "I can't..." but for one second I thought SHE is going to kiss HIM. Oh my heart! This show is going to kill me one day.

I definitely think she wants to kiss him again. The way she says “You can’t kiss me again” sounded so helpless like she’s fighting a losing battle with herself. It’s just the matter of all the confusing emotions going on inside her. She’s still in love with Stefan and no she’s starting to find herself falling for Damon (she said vampireS not vampire at the end). That kiss took her off guard. It may sound cliche but it took her breath away and its written all over her face. The way she inches her face up for more when he leans back, the look of confusion as he backs away, and the way she stares off in front of her, her hand still raised in the air. That effected her way more than she thought it would and if he were to kiss her again now it would only make things all the more complicated.

Elena needs to work through her issues with Stefan and realized she’s grown into this strong young woman. She’s not the same girl she was in the beginning of the show and the fact that she is saying goodbye to that girl and accepting the new her is a huge step in the right direction. You can’t be expected to choose between two amazing guys (they are both amazing despite their lows) when you’re not sure who you are. That, to me, was the mistake Stelena had with their relationship. Elena was using(?) Stefan because he brought that spark back to her life and made her feel alive again. But throughout all her loss and pain she found this new strength and established herself on her own. That’s why when Stefan comes back from his revenge on Klaus they’re going to need to redefine their relationship and what they mean to each other. As for Damon, they’ve slowly built their relationship and Damon never let her be weak. He saw that fire in her because it’s inside himself (and he recognized the fire Katherine had). Now that they’ve kiss their relationship is evolving and she’s beginning to not deny her feelings towards her.

Anyways… long response is long! LOL! When and if they kiss again she’s not going to be able to let him go. That passion/sexual tension they’ve been fighting is going to be too much to stop. That kiss was an exploratory kiss but now that the exploring is done the passion between them is going to ignight ;) JUST LET ME DIE OVER THESE TWO!

I loved the Damon & Stefan dynamic when they were on Save Elena mission but it bothered me so much that when Stefan was alone with Aaron he immediately made Damon look like the worst being ever. I just wish he would've "protected" him even if he didn't understand or wasn't okay with it. But it's his BROTHER! Ugh this makes me so angry!

Couldn’t agree with you more.

I really like the way they teamed up and worked together. They have a common goal and a certain way of handling it. Damon even let Stefan be the kind of bouncer in a way when he was spewing threats. They worked well.

… and then Stefan had to ruin it. 

Granted Damon didn’t hear it but still. It sucks how Stefan considers Damon evil and wrong when he has his own misdoings (which may be considered worse). Elena had the good way of viewing it. She saw the action as wrong but she understood the motive behind it. Stefan didn’t even have a reaction to his brother being tortured for 5 years. Yet Damon made sure in S1 that Stefan got saved when he was being tortured by the tomb vamps. I’m pretty sure there were no qualms about their deaths.

I’m just really over the Stefan-the-hero-glasses everyone seems to have put on. Even characters that don’t know Stefan or Damon still seem to see Stefan as the hero and Damon as the villian. Damon even see’s it that way. 

From the beginning Stefan has said how evil Damon is and how he’s made his life hell and yet besides what happened with Vicki and the things he’s done to save other’s… I kinda don’t see that? I’ve seen the evil Stefan’s gone through… I’ve seen how he was a ripper… how he forced his brothers hand into vampirism…. how he blamed Damon for leading him astray when all Damon was trying to do was help him…. Yet I see nothing that Damon could’ve done to earn Stefan’s hatred of him except in the ease in which he handles being a vampire.

Vampirism makes all these actions very grey. All our characters have dark and light within them. Elena even stated she’s done wrong things. 

I just wish all this misguided hate towards Damon would stop. Our poor guy has such a shitty self-esteem because of it and he’s honestly such a flawless broken character. I need someone (preferably Elena or Stefan) to remind him of all the good that he’s done. Because he’s made the tough decisions so everyone of them could live. And when someone in the group did wrong (Elena killing off the hunter or Kol and all the vamps he sired to save Jeremy, or Caroline killing all those witches by saving Bonnie, or Stefan and his ripper antics) he never held it against them or threw it in their face. 

I’m just so over the Damon hate. Especially when it comes from holier-than-thou Stefan who has his own closet full of victims.
