The scenes between Damon and Klaus, where Klaus was desperately trying to figure out why Damon could win Elena’s heart while Caroline remained immune to Klaus’ sociopathic charms, was brilliant. I’ve always thought that Damon kind of looked up to the Originals … they take “I don’t give a fuck” to a whole new level, and they can rip out two hearts at once. But tonight we learned that Damon has one thing Klaus doesn’t … a girlfriend.
And it wasn’t even cheesy, which it very certainly could have been. Instead, we get a wonderful glimpse into Klaus’ mind, and a wonderful speech on having a reason for your evil.
