Damon to Return to Season 1 Form on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

Damon Salvatore will likely hit the bottle hard on The Vampire Diaries Season 4.

And not just in this fun, fan-made video.

Bad Day for Damon

Speaking to TV Line, Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec made it clear that Damon's attempts to open up last season - which went for naught when Elena chose Stefan - will be a thing of the past when TVD returns in October.

"Damon is the Damon of Season 1, minus the posturing and posing," Plec previews. "He just is. He is who he is. He’s got attitude. He’s always right. He’s rarely wrong."

Don't expect this Salvatore sibling to be apologizing for any actions any time soon.

"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," says Plec.

"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.”

And this year begins on October 11. Are you excited for the new/old Damon?

Damon needs to feed!!!!!!!!!! It is what it is.........so let him be the evil that he needs to be............ stop changing the guy ..........clearly it doesn't work.......like he said in that lovey dovey scene where "Florence in the Machine" song sang in the background...,."so that I don't have to live up to anyone's expectation" that is Damon's motto..... I say he needs to feed so you go baby.....do what you do best rip and run!!!!!!!!!

Oh come on. He will remain forever Elena's lap-dog. If there are any remnants of the season 1 Damon, Plec will rape it.

I'm not sure how Damon will do being a new/old self like the previous seasons but I can't wait for season 4 to come. =P

i like damon dont care about what people think about me attitude i think the biggst thing that damon needs is his own badass vampire girlfriend i thought that anna would have stuck around longer but i guess not im a big fan of damon and elena and i do think that they kind of need to see once and for all what they have between but the only thing that sucks is that if they do that stephan would be hurt unless while he is bored and wants to make elena jealous he hang around with katherine because no matter what stephan and elena belong together I ACTURALLY WOULDNT MIND IF DAMON AND ELENA DIDNT GET TOGETHER HAS LONG AS THEY BRING SOMEONE NEW AND FRESH FOR HIM that reminds me i hope they show katherines reaction to elena being a vampire she is going to be pissed that now she has to fight forever over stephans heart that would be interasting to watch

interesting to see how this works out

Okay i am confused. For shows to survive we need some sort of character evolution. That has happened for Damon, especially over the last season, and now Julie Plec has decided she wants him to regress. Welcome to THe Vampire Diaries - where every character, every plotline every development ALWAYS takes one step forward and two steps back and the show writers are so in love with the status quo that every season plotline is basically a copy-paste from previous season. TVD writers have no balls, never had any. They never kill off characters in impactful consequence-full way. They never do some drastic changes. They NEVER develop characters.

That has happened for Damon, especially over the last season, and now Julie Plec has decided she wants him to regress. Why? Because they have ran out of ideas and just want to recycle the story of Damons journey to become more human (for lack of a better phrase). I understand that he has took Alarics death hard and it should set him back but to completely regress to who he once was is a bit much. I am not impressed.
