I also love the full-cricle of that relationship. You pointed out that the Damon we saw in today's episode is much like the 1864 Damon, a full circle in his evolution as a character. I think the relationship between the brothers has also reached a full circle.
Full circle it is . Definitely for Damon. And that is why i think Damon is going to re discover himself. And help Stefan re discover himself.
If you see it this way, throughout the two seasons, we have Damon blaming Stefan for his becoming a vampire/losing Katherine and Stefan blaming himself for what Damon's become, and despite the fact that we know the brothers love each other - they've been burying it behind mistrust and fights and stabbing one another, quite literally.
Looking at all that Stefan and Damon have been through , their emotions have been pretty screwed up - so much wrong , darkness, women and what not between them. But they both have come to know and accept the fact that thy can only kill FOR each- other , never each-other.
But in today's episode, that end especially - while we've always known that Stefan is willing to do anything for the people he cares about - I mean the fact that he turned his brother shows just how unwilling he was to live/exist without him - because they've always emphasied that Stefan was all about righting the wrongs and stuff, today's episode showed at the end that the 1864 Damon that adored his little brother is back. And next season will reinforce that when he goes looking for and trying to bring back Stefan. It'll be a long journey, but it will prove at the end that the brothers, together, can survive anything.
Hope so. I only see hope in Damon for getting Stefan back. Of course others will help but nobody can push Stefan's buttons like Damon can.
[I hope that obviously, Damon and Elena don't go about doing this alone but with Bonnie, who is awesome, Caroline, Jeremy, Alaric and even Sheriff Forbes, Matt and Tyler. also, I really want the scene from the book in season three where Damon fights Klaus to save Stefan.]You mean Force Mystic Falls on Mission Stefan? Hell, yes!
