2.18 ~ “The Last Dance”
Damon: You see that’s why I didn’t tell you; because you would have never been able to do it. Don’t get me wrong, Stefan. I don’t mind being a bad guy. I’ll make all the life and death decisions, while you’re busy worrying about collateral damage. I’ll even let her hate me for it. But at the end of the day I’ll be the one to keep her alive.
