Sorry but I STILL don't think he is "wrong" for trying to give Elena the cure even if she doesn't "want" it
Then again I *barely* think he was “wrong” for similarly giving her vampire blood (yes, he was wrong. But barely to me. lol)
Hell maybe my morals are skewed but when Ты Любовь someone and Ты KNOW they are either A) going to die или B) going to do something that will affect them in an extremely negative way for the rest of their lives….honestly, I wouldn’t care if they want it или not. I’m sorry I know everyone’s like “rah rah liberated Elena!” but she is NOT liberated. She is under the influence of her own vampirism. This is not liberated Elena because this is not truly completely Elena. Yes this is a part of Elena. It is Elena. But it’s not truly completely her.
It’s like saying that crazy hunter psycho Alaric was “liberated” and that he could do whatever he wanted, and that they should sit back and let Ric kill all of his Друзья and the people he cared about because he “wants” to. This is really NO different. Because guess what - he wouldn’t have wanted that. That was Ric but only a PART of Ric.
Everyone was screaming to “fix” Elena when she first turned, but turning into a vampire doesn’t completely MUTE the parts of yourself that make Ты who Ты are. It enhances them, skews them a bit yes. But Ты are still you. Similarly to how different things in life can CHANGE a person for the better или worse, but Ты are still you. But life doesn’t completely shut off parts of a person - unless you’re under the influence of something obviously. It doesn’t completely take away a part of yourself that makes up so much of your personality.
Damon and Stefan know all of this first hand. They’ve been there. Damon is trying to use all that struggling he’s been going through since season 1 to help her. And he knows, once she turns that switch on, which she will - she is going to go through a hell of a lot of crap she wouldn’t have otherwise if Damon and Stefan didn’t give her the help she didn’t want. Not only is Elena still a teenager but she is a newbie vampire. Not saying Damon and Stefan are supposed to be her parents but they Любовь her. This means they want to look out for her. And they are both like 200 years old, they are going to know a thing или two about the vampire switch. Yes, in this case, both of them know better, and the Elena they knew like 2 episodes назад would have NOT approved of them sitting back and watching her do something like…ohhh I don’t know, trying to kill her best friend…and not do a thing about it.
Damon is completely in the right with this one. Completely. I’d be mad if he didn’t do whatever he could to get her to turn it back on. He knows turning it off is only a quick fix that if taken too far…will only make еще problems.
