BITE-Worthy Moment: Damon Tells Stefan Tyler Bit Him, The Vampire Diaries “The Sun Also Rises”

Once again, so much happened during this week’s installment of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries. The curse was broken and there were two major character deaths — Jenna and Uncle Daddy John; two minor character deaths – Jules and Greta; as well as a relationship death: Matt and Caroline. Elijah chose to save his brother the hybrid over killing him although Bonnie did her badass best to make that happen. It was an emotional episode for everyone involved — including all the fans who can’t get enough of this amazing show. But what got to us the most was a moment between brothers at the very end of “The Sun Also Rises.”

During “The Last Day,” a wolfed-out Tyler bit Damon which, as we know from Rose, means certain death. This week, the vampire was in strict save-Elena-from-Klaus mode. And once that mission was accomplished — with casualties of course — Damon had no choice but to think of what was happening to him. After the funeral, Damon walked away from the group. Stefan approached and told him they were heading back to the house. Damon wants to know how they go about “killing an all-powerful wolf-vamp and his two-faced older brother.” Stefan tells his big bro he’s not going to let Elena lose anyone else. Stefan may need to rethink that thought when Damon finally tells him Tyler bit him. We just love the way Stefan reacts:

“We’ll find something. A cure.” “There’s no cure, Stefan.” “We kept Elena human, right? We found a way where there was no way. Hey. I will do this.” “You want to do something for me? Keep this from Elena. Last thing she needs is another grave to mourn.”

We love the sibling relationship (and yes, rivalry) between Stefan and Damon. It’s complex and volatile and intense. They don’t always understand where the other’s coming from but when they really need each other they are there. This moment really affected me especially as Damon walked off alone.

Damon. Always alone. He tried to do the right thing (in his mind) by feeding Elena his blood. No, she didn’t ask for it and no, he shouldn’t have done it but he’s in love. In love and in pain, Damon doesn’t react rationally. Now that Elena’s safe we think Damon would be more invested in saving his own life. Stefan is. Maybe Damon doesn’t think he’s worth saving. No matter how many times he’s tried to kill him, Stefan doesn’t actually want to see him dead. Not this time. That’s one of the many differences between Stefan and Elijah (traitor!). Stefan was willing to sacrifice himself for Elena (although that backfired because Klaus said he has plans for him). Do you think he’d be willing to sacrifice himself for Damon? We know Stefan won’t be able to live with himself if he doesn’t do everything he can to save his brother.

Let’s see what happens in next week’s finale. Will Stefan find a way to save Damon? How long does Damon have before Tyler’s bite kills him?
