“Ultimately those things are going to come rushing back. There’s a great line in the episode that you’ll see that he kind of calls her on it. It’s a win moment for Damon, he calls her on it. He knows what’s going to happen.”——Ian talking about Elena’s Compelled Away Memories.
Elena, it’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I’m haunted by how things might have played out differently if I’d been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness, nor for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same. As I’ve always loved you and always will.
i’m sorry. this needed to be done. <3 i will never ever in my life forget this moment.
