Damon Salvatore has undergone a serious transition throughout the last three seasons of The Vampire Diaries. He’s gone from a bloodthirsty villain who experienced no qualms about abusing high school girls or snapping the necks of football coaches, to a compassionate protagonist willing to bring his younger brother from a very dark place and put his life on the line for the love of his life (Elena Gilbert). Well brace yourselves, gentle viewers, because that’s all about to change in Season 4. No longer will Damon be an enamored good-doer who’s all about sacrifices and doing the right thing — instead he’s reverting back to the old days when being a sexy, bad playboy was the name of the game!
Here’s what TVLine.com is reporting about the comeback of badass Damon:
Question: Vampire Diaries scoop. Hit me. —Joel
Ausiello: Julie Plec is resurrecting original flavor Damon this season. “This year, Damon is the Damon of Season 1, minus the posturing and posing,” she promises. “He just is. He is who he is. He’s got attitude. He’s always right. He’s rarely wrong. He might do the wrong thing, but he’s always the one who’s like, “I told you guys. You should have listened to me.” So this year is going to be very much about, ‘You don’t like me. You want to judge me. You don’t like who I am, how I do things? Well, screw you.’ It’s going to be a great shift for him… He’s still going to be the Damon we know and love — he’s still going to be kicking ass and taking names. But he just has this devil may care attitude about it. He’s just not going to change for anybody anymore. He did that. That’s over. That’s so last year.”
Ahh! Although “evil” Damon was kind of creepy at times and didn’t think twice about claiming lives, we can’t wait to see him re-embrace a life of sass, blood, and decadence! Hopefully this news means that not only will viewers get to enjoy even more hilarious Damon quotes but also additional dancing scenes!
So tell us: Are you excited to see Damon Salvatore return to his former ways in Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries?
