I just want Elena back. I don’t know why the writers give characters the perfect death and then ruin it by making them evil.
It was the perfect goodbye, the perfect death. Should have totally been left at that.
I am fans of Damon Klaus and Delena/Klaroline so I really wasn't expecting to see that here. While I don't disagree with list of Klaus's "crimes," I just find it incongruous that you can state that Klaus is not a nice guy while accepting all the problematic things that Damon has done in the past (as recently as this summer!) and is seemingly going to be doing in the future. Has there been an acceptable level of backlash for those actions? Or for anyone else that has done bad things on this show?
Where do I say I accept Damon’s behaviour? I have said, time and time again that I don’t condone everything Damon has done. If you have been following for a while you would know that I don’t agree with his actions. Yet the difference between Klaus and Damon is that Damon regrets the things he’s done. Klaus does not. Damon tries to be a better man. Klaus will only do that if it benefits him in some personal way.
Damon Salvatore and Klaus Mikaelson are not the same guy. Damon can be a bad person, Klaus on the other hand is downright evil.
I just still find it hard to believe that you think I accept everything Damon has done. Yes, I (along with Casey and Jenn) run this blog and we are fans of Delena but that doesn’t mean I will sit by and accept him killing Aaron Whittmore’s family but did you miss that episode where Damon and Enzo were tortured by his ancestors? Most of the time Damon doesn’t do something without being pushed before hand. I agree he should have handled it better but being tortured (and I mean, guts out eyes gouged) is going to break even the hardest of men.
Although, yes. I agree. No one on this show gets the ‘time for the crime’. Even with Liz in town, everyone gets off murdering and biting and staking people here and there without fear of being booked.
Anyway, I hope this explains my opinion better for you.
Why didn’t Damon try to go back for Enzo after turning his humanity switch back on? He could’ve brought back up and saved his friend like a BAMF. TVD doesn’t make sense to me anymore…
Do you mean when he escaped during the Augustine society gathering? Think of it like this, he had been locked up for five years, turning one thought over and over in his head: that he will make them pay. As soon as he was out of that cage, that was the first time in five years that he could have control over his fate. He wanted to make those who hurt him suffer. If he had turned his back on the society and helped Enzo before the candles fell, then he would have risked capture again. How do you think he would be punished then, for trying to escape? I’m sure Dr. Whitmore would’ve made his suffering tremendously unbearable. Perhaps he would’ve even killed Damon, himself.
Anyway, what he didn’t take into account was the fire. He said that if he didn’t escape now, the surviving members of the society would hunt him down and drag him back to the basement, so he saw this as his only chance of survival. The bars of the cage were coated in vervain and with the fire, Damon had little to no choice if he wanted to make it out alive. He chose to save himself instead of damning them both.
He also didn’t return after 1953 because he believed Enzo to be dead.
It makes sense.
Quick thought but with Damon killing a few months ago with Sarah, I felt it was a little out of character, especially with being with Elena. He still kills, but with a purpose (e.g. danger), and I didn’t think it made any sense, but then I thought; maybe it was more for Enzo than himself. He left his friend to die because he couldn’t bare the torture anymore, and it killed him. The least he could do to try and make up for it was to take revenge just the way Enzo wanted. What do you think?x
It does seem out of character, but as Damon pushed the torture and pain from those five years deep, deep down I do think that he was suffering, and has suffered, for decades following 1953. Like Stefan suffering with the safe, Damon was left with some post traumatic stress and, I believe, survivors guilt. He promised Enzo he would continue to hunt Whitmores and that’s exactly what he did.
I believe that’s how he dealt with the pain and guilt for leaving his friend to die because really, if it hadn’t been for Enzo, Damon would have never made it out of that cell. It could have been him left in the parlor, burning.
There are some things that cannot be overcome and I think this shows that Elena can’t always keep Damon from doing terrible things.
Wow, damons story line just got a whole lot interesting. why do the writers insisting on caroline mentioning she’s anti-delena almost every episode?! do you think its because damon will somehow save her at the end of the season and she’ll look at him with less “hate”?
I’m super excited to see where this goes. As much as I hate any kind of torture on the show (and hell, do the writers love torture) it’s interesting to see how this new found information and story line develops. As for Caroline, damn. I am so, so disappointed. She was one of my all time favourite characters but now, with all the anti-DE, it’s just frustrating. I know that she’s had a tough time and Damon hasn’t always been the most supportive of her but you’d think she’d at least give Elena some credit and respect her friend’s choices. I hope something happens that makes Caroline realise that hey, some people (even if they were absolute buttholes before) CAN change!
And I suppose the reason it angers me so much is that she’s always been a Saint Stefan supporter and it’s just that, not once, really, has ANYONE ever acknowledged on this show that he is actually a very, very destructive person. It’s a problematic thing for me because we are constantly reminded of Damon’s mishaps but it’s like we are reminded at every opportunity that Stefan ‘never scared Elena, never hurt Elena, and was always in control’, which is the biggest crock of bs I’ve ever heard.
It’s things like this that just kind of crush any sort of hope for DE.
I’m trying, trying, trying to remain hopeful. At least, if they’re not together by the end of this season, I hope they each get to find happiness in their own way. I can settle if they’re happy.
kaylaismyseaotter said: alot of people were put off by the whole pregnancy thing though. what did you think about that?
Honestly, I’m not usually into that kinda thing but it wasn’t vampire/vampire procreation so I’m interested to see what happens to Hayley and the baby. I’m interested to see what the writers do and where they go with that particular storyline. Will the witches use it as a ploy against Klaus? I’d like to see that. BUT that would require him being emotionally attached to either Hayley or the baby which, as far as we’ve seen, he’s totally not.
Really, though, what I want this to be about, is changing Klaus. Every character needs development, and maybe I’m biased or blind, but I still see Klaus as the same man who waltzed into Mystic Falls in 2x17, Know Thy Enemy. I want him to grow, I want him to see through clear, focused eyes that being The Big Bad Monster will not win him love or adoration from anyone. I really hope Marcel shows him what it is to be a true leader, a true King because that is who Klaus should be. He needs to learn that people will not do you any favours if they fear you, and compelling them does not cover the fact that their loyalty is false.
I find that Marcel is much more intimidating and mysterious playing the Good Guy role than Klaus ever was being the Big Bad.
it wasn’t so dark when kol was on fire. /funny comment
If I had a cup of tea, I would be sobbing into it right now. I’m going to miss that beautiful bastard.

Damn, was it a reliable source? That’s a bit of a bummer. I’ll find some links and things for people who want to watch with the US.

UGH I THINK IF YOU’D CHANGE YOUR URL IT WOULD BE SO WEIRD BECAUSE MOST OF THE PEOPLE FOLLOW YOU GUYS SINCE YOU CREATED AND UGH IT’S JUST SUCH A SIGN I MEAN WHO DOESN’T KNOW WOD????? AND I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU JUST SAID why am i screaming tho
It would be so, so weird. It’s like if someone said ‘waitingondelena’ on the street I would generally look around and say what. OH DARLING! You utter sweetheart. Lemme just give you a hug rn. LOUD NOISES. It gets the emotion across ;) <3
mademehope replied to your post: I have a feeling in 4x07 either Caroline and Klaus…
Apparently, Julie already replied to a fan on twitter that it wasn’t Klaus/Caroline.
Honestly, until I see the episode I really don’t want to think of it being Damon and Elena again because I will not be able to handle the disappointment if it’s not. We always get cocked around with these teasers and spoilers only to be let down. Here’s just trying to be positive with what little we get. It’s nicer, I think, to be surprised during the episode than to build it up before hand.
Stefan probably still thinks they can beat Klaus, which they can’t. Question: if they were to use the cure on Klaus, would his entire bloodline be effected?
They can’t beat him. He’s always going to be there, and he WILL get what he wants. He’s not an Original for nothing.
That is a good question, I hope they pick up on that because it would be really interesting to see how that would play out.
I have livestream links on my blog ;)
You absolute sweetie. Thank you so much! <3
