the main victim of this, in the main cast, would be Stefan
don't worry. doubtful they would neglect steffan. They will most likely do what they always do and neglect elena.
He's gonna have his development, at least i hope so,
I am sorry, but I just can't see how this show would make lasting impact over the actions of the characters. they have not tried to do that till now, i doubt they will suddenly start now. Every situation, every development, revelation, would ALWAYS lead back to status quo, sadly.
It would seem that the writers of this show no nothing about multitasking because they could have been making steps to develop his character along side Damon's.with this I agree. They CAN'T multitask.
They can't have story and chara-development at the same time. They somehow manage NOT to focus on developing multiple characters at once and they fail at that.
Finale of S2 was a PERFECT opportunity to develop everyone. They missed it so they can have another damon rage-cry and another SHOCKING thing, sadly...
As the favorite "fanboy", Damon is now widely expected to save the day in the nick of time ALL THE TIME, and ultimately, get the girl. If he doesn't........just watch the enormous backlash that the writers will have coming thire way.
the problem is not that. The problem is that even though Damon eventually does everything in this show now, characters and cast and writers still act as if he is oh my god how wrong and not right, while steffan, who does nothing, is supposed to be the rightful one. THATS what damages the perception of both characters in public
