Quotes

Damon Salvatore: I'm lost. I have a secret, a big one. But I've never said it out loud. What's the point? It's not gonna change anything. It's not gonna make me good, make me adopt a puppy. I can't be what other people want me to be. What she wants me to be. This is who I am. You are my existential crisis. Do I kill you or do I not kill you? But I have to Jessica, because I'm not human. And I miss it. I miss it more than anything in the world. That is my secret. But there is only so much hurt a man can take.

Beautiful Dream, Mortal Existential Crisis
21 October 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While Stefan seeks out Isobel, Damon asks Elena to take care of Rose and he meets Jules. He asks Jules the cure for werewolf bite and she tells that there is no cure. Caroline is involved in a triangle of love with Matt and Tyler. When the pain of Rose comes to an end, Damon hides his true feelings about her and has a mortal existential crisis.

"The Descent" is THE episode of Damon, who gives peace to Rose and suffers for her in a magnificent performance of Ian Somerhalder. The sequence of Rose's dream is beautiful and heartbreaking. Instead of killing Jessica, the conclusion would have been excellent if he killed Jules instead. I am going to miss the charismatic Rose and it is terrible to see the unpleasant Uncle John back to the show. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "The Descent"
