Kai deserves better
I’m so happy to be able to see my favourite character Kai back but at the same time it sucks. It sucks that we have to see him go through the same bullshit again. In season 6 he opened up to Bonnie about his past and about how his family treated him like an abomination. Yet she still didn’t want anything to do with him and didn’t bother giving him a chance. In a deleted scene of season 6 he confronted Jo about how he was the “black sheep” and how everyone treated him like shit yet she still didn’t want anything to do with him and still saw him as this monster even though Kai was obviously trying to redeem himself and gain forgiveness from everyone. This season he’s opened up to Caroline about the same thing. And even admits that he “chose to become a sociopath”. This just proves that if his ridiculous family hadn’t treated him like he was abnormal then he wouldn’t be a “sociopath”. I hate how no one else on the show can see this. All Kai has ever wanted was to be treated the same way that Jo has been treated her whole life. Jo has never had to deal with the shit Kai’s gone through. All because she got lucky. It absolutely sickens me that Kai could open up his heart and soul to someone, try to gain their forgiveness, tell them he feels guilty about the things he’s done to them yet they’d still hate him and believe that he’s “irredeemable”. What’s even worse is the fact that that same person would choose to be friends with Damon, who’s made way more kills, done more hurt knowing the difference between good and bad since he’s not a “sociopath”.
