Bonnie brought Jeremy BACK to life (AGAIN) but then SHE died. Then HE almost died (AGAIN) during a car crash. No one can ever say that Damon doesn't care about Jeremy. No matter what Damon himself says.
Added:
During his stint as a hunter, Jeremy was pretty tenacious. Vampires stole everything from him AND he couldn't die because of the Gilbert ring. He was basically the best.
Added:
Jeremy was DEAD-dead until Bonnie brought him back to life. But then SHE was dead and he was the only one who could see her and then there were THREE Elena's and Bonnie became the anchor. All so she could have sex with Jeremy apparently. Hey, we can't say we wouldn't do the same.
Added:
Things go so serious in that cave in Nova Scotia that Jeremy ended up totally dead. Do not pass go, do not collect oxygen. UNTIL...
Added:
Things got REAL when Jeremy let Bonnie use his tattoo/map to find Silas' grave for Professor Shadypants. Real hot and also, well, serious.
Added:
In the midst of all the badassing and smartassing and dying and coming back to life and vampire hunting, Jeremy maintained a pretty A-OK relationship with his big sister/cousin Elena. You know, when he wasn't trying to kill her.
Added:
In his continued commitment to personal hygiene, Jeremy took showers. Which is good because with all that wood cutting and bicep building, he probably worked up quite the sweat. We volunteer as tribute if he needs help with those hard to reach places or any one of his 2000 parts.
Added:
Something about becoming a hunter meant Jeremy could only ever wear undershirts and show off his beautiful biceps. Not that we're complaining.
Added:
Shortly after returning to Mystic Falls from his compelled stay in Colorado, Jeremy Gilbert accepted his destiny and became a hunter. No one will ever, ever, EVER forget this scene. Ever.
Added:
Jeremy Gilbert is so good he even grew on Damon Salvatore. (Okay, MAYBE Damon is smirking in the direction of Jeremy's jugular...just go with it...)
Added:
In between vampire killing and girlfriend kissing, Jeremy made sure to brush his teeth. We're sure Mama Gilbert is proud of her baby boy and his commitment to personal hygiene.
Added:
In his spare time, Jeremy Gilbert took up the crossbow to hunt vampires. He's the only other person we know who is able to give Daryl Dixon a run for his money.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
