YAY VAMP DIARIES!!!!
Damon makes me sooooooooooo happy.
I'm rewatching last week's episode, where he and Alaric go to the house in the woods where Stefan is being held captive, and Damon kills the house's owner so that he can get inside and rescue his
Alaric: You were supposed to compel her.
Damon: It doesn't work that way.
Alaric: She's human!
Damon: And I'm not! So I don't care. Now get out of here--oh, and get rid of the body!
The fact that the entire conversation is conducted in hissed, harsh whispers to avoid detection by the other vampires just adds to the amusement value.
I've said it before, and I'm sure this is not the first time that I'll repeat myself, but Damon's true obsession is his brother. We get to see more of that in this week's episode, when Damon is confronted about his vampirism by the newly introduced Uncle John Gilbert. Damon's clearly puzzled by John's knowledge, but doesn't care too much about it until John threatens both Salvatore brothers with exposure. Then Damon's hackles go up *visibly* and he breaks John's neck without a second thought.
Of course, that doesn't turn out so well, but still. The point remains the same. If Damon were any more obsessed, there'd be an entry in the DSM-IV about it.
Watch how he switches gears abruptly at the very end of the episode. Damon's lounging in an armchair in front of the fireplace, playing at lord-of-the-manor with his cut-crystal glass of blood, when he hears Stefan come in.
Damon: We have a problem . . . and by problem, I mean global crisis.
And when Stefan is just pale and silent, Damon immediately whips over into protective-older-brother mode, forgetting all about the truly important matters of a just a moment before . . . because for him, nothing is more important than his brother.
I doubt anything ever will be.
