Were you totally disturbed by the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, which showed Damon Salvatore (Ian Somherhalder) torturing Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev)? Me too. So much so, in fact, that I've not felt quite the same about the Smolder-holder since watching it.
But hey, the thesp has jumped to his on-screen character's defense in a recent interview with Zap2It. And this is what he had to say:
Damon wants Katherine as dead as a doornail because I think she reminds him of everything awful he's ever done... She taught him how to kill, taught him how to enjoy it. And I've learned that resentment is anger toward yourself for something you allowed to happen. I think Damon victimizes himself when it comes to Katherine, saying, 'She did this to me, she did that to me.' But in all actuality, he does have a point.
If Damon finds out that Katherine did the Traveller spell to live in Elena's body, I don't even want to know what he's going to do...
The thesp continued:
Ultimately, Damon is victimizing himself and being a baby about it, but he does have a point. I mean, he has so much anger. Imagine waiting for someone for 150 years...
What do you think, Vampire Diaries fans? Was Damon's behavior reasonable because of all of the horrible things that Katherine did? Let me know what you think in the comment section below!
