Relationship Recap: Ric and Damon Are Friends Again on The Vampire Diaries

The past few weeks have been very difficult on The Vampire Diaries fandom. At least that’s what I’d like to think when it came to Alaric kicking Damon to the metaphorical curb. I know Damon deserved it but Ric is his one and only friend and it was a bitter breakup. Ric had every right to end things because their frienship had been one-sided for quite some time. Ric’s the guy Damon can turn to for anything, especially since Stefan’s all ripper right now. He’s the guy who has Damon’s back no matter what. He’s the only human (besides Elena), who wants him around and cares about whether or not he lives or dies. And what does Rick get in return? Nothing. So when Damon went off the rails in “Disturbing Behavior” and killed Alaric I wasn’t happy. And I knew there would be consequences.

It was nice to see Mason Lockwood back in Mystic Falls however briefly in “Ghost World.” I think the most important thing he did – besides potentially find a way to kill Klaus (more on that later) – is to reunite Damon and Ric. I love their caustic but caring relationship. I love their dynamic. I love seeing them hanging out together like real friends. And Ric is someone Damon needs in his life. Ric humanizes him, holds him accountable for his actions, maybe even makes him think (sometimes) before he acts. And he’s saved Damon’s skin more than once.

The only thing that would’ve made Damon’s apology better would have been to hear him utter the words, “I’m sorry.” But that’s not Damon and I do feel like he actually meant what he said to Ric. Now that they’re friends again, I can’t wait to see him get in trouble together. That’s what real friendship is about anyway, right? Having someone by your side who supports you when you’re making questionable decisions – and that’s what going after Klaus is. I’ve become a bit attached to him, I have to admit. I’m not quite ready for anyone to find a way to kill him so I’m hoping it’ll take a while. Like maybe a few more seasons?

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8/7 c on the CW
