‘The Vampire Diaries’ moments that prove Damon and Stefan were the ultimate pair
Even though ‘The Vampire Diaries’ gave birth to a bunch of TV shows including, ‘The Vampire Diaries: A Darker Truth’, ‘The Originals‘, ‘The Originals: The Awakening’, and ‘Legacies‘, our craze for it hasn’t changed at all. The show debuted on The CW in 2009 and ran for 8 long seasons, consisting of 171 episodes, till 2017, and left the fans feeling fulfilled.
The show gave the fans a ton of great memories and moments to remember. And a bunch of them came from the dynamics of Damon and Stefan in ‘The Vampire Diaries’.
What were those Vampire Diaries moments that still bring warmth to our hearts?
When Damon saved Stefan multiple times
There have been several instances throughout the show when Damon gave a new life to Stefan. When, in season 1 of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, Damon helped Elena in saving the life of Stefan. And then, again in season 3, it was Damon who took it upon himself to turn Bonnie’s Mom, even though it had to be Stefan.
But, as we know, Stefan was always a vulnerable soul, living in the guilts of the world and punishing himself while brooding over it. While Damon was exactly the opposite. So, whenever Damon possibly could, he saved Stefan from the guilt. That happened in season 8 as well after Stefan killed Enzo but you know, the true partner Damon came to the rescue.
When Stefan did everything he could for Damon
It wasn’t only Damon who looked out for Stefan every time. Stefan probably proved himself a better brother to Damon a bunch of times in ‘The Vampire Diaries‘. Do you remember when Damon was dying from Tyler’s bite in season 2? Damon decided to burn his ring in the sun to escape the torture of hallucinations before his death. But Stefan stopped him and locked him in a cellar. Stefan went out in search of the cure like a good brother.
He, in fact, encouraged Elena to go talk to Damon even when he knew what it meant for him. He cared about Damon above everything else when Damon was dying. And then, Stefan did what a true brother should. He gave himself up to Klaus entirely to save Damon.
Even in death, the brothers were together
Both Stefan and Damon risked their own lives to save each other plenty of times. They left no stone unturned to look after each other even when they showed no affection on the surface.
In the finale of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, when Damon died, he met Stefan in his afterlife. Oh, just visualizing that scene brings tears to our eyes! But that proves how ultimate their bond was. It could have been Elena, but no, it was Stefan who he found, because it was Stefan who he truly loved, and received love from.
Even though both Stefan and Damon made a fine pair with Elena in ‘The Vampire Diaries’, it was their brotherhood that was the life of the show. We can forget everything after so many years, but not the moments Stefan and Damon shared. What was your favourite Stefan and Damon moment from the entire series?
