So finished the last episode and Damon that was bad, not just bad but a very cowardly bad move. You don’t leave your friend to die, when they are so many options to save them. The storyline hasn’t really started yet and the writers are making me feel not so good about it.
Can someone remove Elena from that storyline, the guy has been doing nothing, but chasing after one doppelgänger after the other, let him have some space to get his own story.
Damon kept a secret from Elena, what a surprise -_- colour me shocked *not really*.
If Stefan and Katherine are supposed to be the, what was it again “jaw dropping” couple well then that kinda backfired, cause I actually didn’t feel my jaw hit the ground, but whatever. Then again it seems that Kristin was the one who wrote the spoilers so if that is the case I wouldn’t really be surprised.
Can someone shut Elena up for. Caroline can be so adorable. Oh and someone better get Nina some cough syrup to drink, one could barely understand her. I now understand why they didn’t show much of Stefan and Katherine. Paul didn’t want to catch her infection.
Really hope that when Enzo get’s out, he goes to Damon and sets his ass on fire for me. He totally deserves it. Love you Damon, but come on.
Where was Bonnie btw, why am I even asking. Well looking forward to her finally getting a well deserved storyline that doesn’t involve her dying for any of the Gilberts, cause it is getting annoying on 20 different levels.
All in all wasn’t a bad episode. Really hope they do Damon’s storyline justice, Ian deserves that much after getting nothing for years.
I really think the goal is to write a ship so flat out RIDICULOUS, you can’t help but laugh and/or cringe during every fucking scene.
i feel some type of way about people saying they ship bamon because ‘she’d keep him in line.’ like, everyone has their reasons for shipping and i’m not trying to police anything, but to me that sounds like bonnie would be acting more like damon’s babysitter than his
don’t get me wrong, i do think bonnie’s influence does lead damon to make less shitty decisions than he would otherwise, but she doesn’t do it on purpose or make him do anything like ‘keeping him in line’ suggests. she’s basically just like ‘kay, but you wrong #doe’ and walks away. and after that it’s damon who ultimately contemplates the consequences of his actions and makes a different choice than his initial, reckless one. and if he’s already made said reckless choice, he takes bonnie’s words and admits he could’ve acted differently.
bonnie, in my opinion, definitely brings out the best in damon, but it’s weird to me to imply (even unwittingly) that it’s something she sets out to do every time he fucks up. like…no. bonnie seems to be the only one who’s words damon really takes into consideration but she doesn’t keep him in line. damon’s a capable adult
although it’s hard to tell sometimesand bonnie has such a low tolerance for his bullshit (emphasis on his because everybody else uses her as a doormat and she let’s them but let me not get started) she doesn’t have the time or patience to keep him in line. it’s damon who, for whatever reason, decides to take her words to heart.
as i got to the middle of this post i realized it was piggy-backing off darwinquark's meta, but i just had to get it off my chest lol. idk if any of this even made sense.
I mean isn’t “keeping” him in line, “making” him a better person what Elena is doing or trying to do and look at where it is going. Bonnie isn’t going to be the one to “change” or “keep” Damon in line. The only person who can do that is Damon. He is the one who has to think about his actions and consequences they bring. Damon is a grown man who should be able to know the differences between right and wrong and sometimes making the right decisions instead of taking the easy route. Reason numero uno why I am not here for Delena; you have the girl, now be a better person. It doesn’t work that way as we saw last episode.
If a person can’t be themselves they hide who they are and do what makes them be themselves in secret,
Damon is either the best thing for her, or the worst.
