: About the only good thing I can say about last night was that April wasn't in it.
Damon's 180 from wanting to cure Elena to break the bond to not wanting it because human Elena will age and die made no sense. He was ok with her either way at the start, and pursued human Elena, but now doesn't want her if she is human.
But he winter be with her bonded either, so... Anyone else seeing the problem here?
For him to want her to stay a vampire should have been his stance all along with him fighting the cure instead of everyone wanting it except forKol. Now Kol is gone so Damon steps in. Damon was onto Shane, but then fell for it anyway.
I wish the writers would talk to each other so the episodes actually added up.
Well, actually, Damon was who Damon really is last night ( I said that I was disappointe- cos I thought they will show epicness and have him for it- but really it would not be Damon!!!)
Damon, how I see him- is someone who is not really a strong character, good deep down, but with a lot of insecurities which he masks with his bad behaviour, which is his shield that he uses so skillfully... and as a human he was all for the forbidden and dangerous, hence Katerina.... and he wanted to drink from her, Stefan was compelled, right!!!
So, katerina, imo, is the right one for him!!!He wants the woman to be going round with him and have good time- and now that Elena is a vampire it is just right for him... he is not the type that wants to settle down ( remember end of season when he first met her - persuming she wants more- excitement, to see the world...)- and I guess part of Elena wants that but I think, she wants the love and the home more!!! Back to Damon- I don't think he messes up when things become difficult- it is just his nature- his the bad-boy and he will always love the naughty - and he won't change for anyone -not even for his love... remember the scene last season when he attacked Caroline's dad and Elena stopped him and wondered why he is still doing the bad thing- and he even then said to her do not make me or think I will be Stefan.... Damon now, more than ever can see that actually the bond made her act on feelings she has for him, but actually it is someone like Stefan she actually really wants... ( and as Elejah fan here- I wish it is Elijah she chooses ultimately- LOL
So, him turning 180 degrees- maybe not.... it is Damon all along- he is conflicted all the time- as he has so much to deal still within himself....does he really want Elena... or was it Katerina that he wants all along... or a fusion of Elena and Katerina...
He wants vampire Elena! Cos that what is IT for him!!! Now that he has got her he will not want to let her go!!!
I guess I detoured from my point, I don't know...
but I get Damon saying what he said to Elena, it is him, and I think that none of it is out of his character!!!JMO.
I was commenting on how fast Damon's turn was. He wasn't going to let Shane get to him, the immediately let Shane get to him.
Damon not wanting to be human, I get, and figured would be his take. Him wanting Elena to stay a vampire would have made sense as his first reaction until he found out abuot the sire bond, but from day one he was onboard with curing her and in one day he changed his mind. For him to turn that fast, to me, required more conflict than "I'll cure you for Stefan, I'll cure you to make sure you love me, shut up Shane I'm onto you, Shane is right, I don't want you cured."
And it's not like he's willing to be with her as a vampire and things are perfect and she's ruining it with the cure. He refuses to really be with her because of the stupid bond, which can't be broken (stupidly) wihtout curing her. In one ep they really left no options for Delena to be a couple with this new stance. Granted it's a stance Stelena should have had to deal with long ago that was largely ignored, but they didn't have the unbreakable bond in there to make it that much more convoluted. Again, I hate the boxed in writing they do with this show. Everything narrowed to one dumb thing.
On top of that, he told Stefan he was ok with Elena either way and he had no problems chasing her before she was a vampire. So for him to suddenly tell her the human/vampire thing doesn't work (which is true) is a big change to happen over night.
What I guess I'm saying is, the writers yet again wanted there to be a twist and instead of making it fit, they again just threw it in and it really doesn't jive with what happened the ep before.
It just seemed to me that once they killed the only fly in the cure ointment, Kol, they decided they needed another so Damon changed his mind to complicate things.
I often feel the writers throw darts at story ideas and go where it lands instead of with what makes sense
