don’t know how tonight’s episode will go folks
but let’s keep in mind that a lot of canon ships on TV right do not have:
✔ storylines where they save each other’s lives repeatedly, even when it puts them in danger
✔ half the otp moving heaven and hell for the other
and torching some doppelgangers in the process
✔ so much unresolved sexual tension that every time they see each other it’s eye porn
✔ scene where half the otp is so relieved to see the other they just melt into each other’s arms, consequences be damned
✔ veiled love confessions in lines like “where the hell is the wicked witch of the west” and “you’re disgusting”
✔ one of them not being able to move on without getting the other person back in their life
✔ bamf moments where they get shit done without anyone’s help
✔ oh and did I mention one of them brings the other back from the fucking dead
Bamon Canon Sex Scene: because let’s face it, this is legit porn (
let’s wash away that nonexistent beremy sex together)
because where there’s Bamon, there’s Bourbon
am i rite kendra
and call me insane but
in the 100th episode we’ll be seeing a lot of dead characters coming back
bonnie freakin’ bennett (again) will unite the two sides, the dead and the living (i bet she can do that) in order to bring damon back
which will cause a brief reunion with past characters
that’s why kat is so excited about that ep
krayday said: you could be on to something, they should that scene where bonnie is communicating with the witch lady, maybe they did that for a reason?
yup i mean i’m thinking that bonnie will replace being a witch with being a kind of protector of people on the other side
she’s a giver by nature and she seemed happy when she helped that old lady
if this is her arc this season, coping with the other side by helping it, it would make sense to put damon in certain danger wink wink
those experiments look pretty goddamn horrific
and its subjects don’t seem to last long
what if damon is brought to the tipping point (that promo sure makes it look like that) and he actually dies
like for real
and only bonnie freakin’ bennett can communicate with him on the other side
and she tries to find a way to bring him back
because that would be her way of thanking him
just imagine some of that dialogue
you didn’t give up on me, damon, i’m not giving up on you
you brought me back, i mean to return the favor
So I was watching one of Ian’s interviews for the 100th episode (this video) and you can’t help but feel for this guy because he is so done with this Dullena storyline.
Some choice words:
Ian: I mean it’s just amazing, the decisions this man (Damon) makes blow my mind, I mean whoever thought it was a good idea to kill the love of your life’s little brother. I mean, come on man, think about this for a second, it’s not a good idea.
I don’t know about you guys, but "the decisions he makes blow my mind" sounds like a pretty harsh statement from someone who has been familiar with his character for more than five years.
and “whoever thought it was a good idea” screams “quit your job, Julie Plec”.
Reading between the lines, it seems to me he sees his relationship with Elena as a bad decision, or “not a good idea”. Especially since it reeks of abuse.
Here’s another telling quote:
Ian: I think he does everything, even if it’s awful, with so much heart that the audience finds justification to forgive him, like oh he’s having a bad day, oh he’s in love... he killed her brother!
Of course the interviewer misses the point by handling it like a joke, but I think Ian is seriously trying to convey something here. Note that he sounds sarcastic and incredulous, because he doesn’t agree with said justification. The audience can also stand for Elena who offers forgiveness without acknowledgement of who Damon is as a person. Basically, Damon is let off the hook, but he’s never really understood.
That coupled with the whole “questionable decisions” aspect leads me to believe Ian would have chosen differently for his character as early as season one. I think he regrets the fact that Damon didn’t make certain decisions instead
like going after Bonnie Bennett, duh.
And yeah, if right now he were in a romantic storyline with Bonnie, you know what he’d say to that interviewer:
Sure, Damon’s made some bad calls, but falling in love with Bonnie, the one person who knows what he’s about and challenges him, is the best decision he ever made.
now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and cry because this reality doesn’t exist
