Vampire Diaries Season 5 Spoiler: Ian Somerhalder Reveals “Damon Is Bad Again”

Ian Somerhalder teases The Vampire Diaries Season 5 in ChinaWhile we enjoy watching Ian Somerhalder portray the sweet and dutiful boyfriend on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, there’s nothing better than watching Damon Salvatore in total bad boy mode. Remember Season 1? Damon was as smitten with Elena Gilbert as he is now — only back then he was a sexy, spontaneous dance machine who never gave a second thought as to whose neck he was snapping or feasting on. Blood was blood, and killing/maiming was fun and a natural aspect of his ‘creature of the night’ persona. ‘Viva la fangs!’ was his life motto and he certainly indulged in the hedonistic pleasures of being a vamp.

Although it sucks that Damon broke up with Elena in “Fifty Shades of Grayson,” there is one silver lining: the couple’s current split is going to spiral Damon into a state of moral ambiguity and his behavior is going to raise some eyebrows. If you thought his strategic murders of the Whitmore family members were unsettling, wait until you see him in action when TVD returns!

“Damon is bad again,” Ian revealed in a video interview with China Joy during a recent trip to China. He explained, “He’s sort of the bad Damon, which is always a lot of fun. Because he’s heartbroken from Elena. He wants to just eat people and drink booze.”

And if Elena was the person who inspired Damon to be a more thoughtful and compassionate man, guess who’s going to serve as the devil on his shoulder in TVD Season 5? His old Augustine buddy, Enzo (Michael Malarkey)! The two fellas are apparently letting bygones be bygones (remember the time you left me to die in a fiery cage of doom? don’t sweat it, mate!) and embarking on a beautiful-yet-dangerous bromance.

“Enzo is the man,” Ian raved. “There’s a lot of Enzo and Damon. I think it’s called Denzo.” The adventures of Denzo? Yes please! While we’re saddened about Delena (let’s face it though — there’s always hope for these twin flames), we’re eager to see Damon live it up with a proper drinking buddy again.

Watch Ian’s revealing interview in the video below!

The Vampire Diaries Season 5 returns Thursday, January 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

  1. Stephanie Said:

    Yes & no. I love seeing the “bad” Damon in so far as he’s a lot of fun. But it bothers me how the writers have NO PROBLEM letting Damon be bad and do terrible things, but with their precious St. Stefan they always make sure he is justified in every bad thing he does. And conveniently, every character on the show overlooks, forgets or forgives his misdeeds. But never Damon’s. It’s annoying to watch. As a fan of the show I’d love it if things could be more balanced. Fair.

  2. Dan Said:

    I for one am glad Damon will become the bad boy of the show again as I feel he lost the status of antihero long ago..

  3. Hay Said:

    “St. Stefan” really? Stefan is a decent person, at his very core. His spiral into being the ripper was because of his guilt. He feels extreme guilt for all of his past mistakes and killing people. Damon has no remorse. He only cares about what Elena wants, or what he wants. Damon has never thought about how what he does affects others, which is the difference between him and Stefan. Stefan tries to make amends with those he hurts, Damon could care less.

  4. ranjana Said:

    m a huge fan of dis show. damon is hot charming guy. stephen n ellena both luk nys couple…

  5. Taty Said:

    I agree with Stephanie!!! And I hate hoe Caroline is always talking crap about him and whatever Stephan does is like nothing happened.

  6. Rhacy Caunca Said:

    NAH, IM NOT A DELENA SHIPPER SO, IM HAPPY THAT THEY BROKE UP. BUT, I DONT WANT ELENA TO GO BACK WITH STEFAN ANYMORE, FOR I WANT STEFAN WITH KATHERINE NOW. ELENA’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR STEFAN’S LOVE, ATLEAST KATHERINE KNOWS THAT HE REALLY LOVE STEFAN. :D DO YAH, DAMON THE BAD GUY, SEEMS NORMAL. AND WE ALL KNOW IN THE NEXT EPISODES ,HE AND ELENA WILL MAKE IT UP.

  7. TVDfan Said:

    Damon’s character follows suit with the books, so what’s the big deal if he is the bad guy? He is my favorite character and I don’t care for him as a softie, as he was when he was dating Elena. I’m happy to see him back as the antihero! But don’t be mistaken. Damon does have a good side as well. He just doesn’t show it often. Personally, I can’t stand Elena. In the books or the show. She shouldn’t end up with either of them!

  8. Caterina Said:

    I completely agree with Rhacy Caunca. I’m sooooo happy tat Delena are over. However I want Stelena bak. Stefan will always be gud for Elena. I’m not happy tat Elena choose Damon but everyone makes mistakes. And as for Katherine sources say tat she’s going to die because they want to introduce a new character. If Katherine does live then yes I want Stefan and Katherine so it can teach Elena a lesson tat she chose the wrong guy. I love Damon as a bad boy and a single boy. Better off single :)

    I can’t stand Elena… i just wish they could both break free of her.
