Truly a silly TVD rant, but it bugs!!  
Yes, I know I'm all over my previous TVD issues, but I MUST briefly bitch and whine about something!

OH MY FUCKING GOD!! SERIOUSLY! I KNEW IT!!! Can they not have ONE FUCKING FLASHBACK EPISODE WITHOUT STEFAN!!?!?!?!??!?! We didn't get to see Damon in suave 1920's garb in "The End of the Affair," because it was ALL Stefan's flashback (never mind that he's already had more than anyone else), but here when it actually looks like a Damon-ONLY flashback episode ... nope! New stills from 3.16 just came out and, of course, here's Stefan!

Geez, at this point, (not including one-time flashbackers) Elijah and Klaus (and that's barely) are the only ones who have been featured LESS than Damon in flashback episodes.

PISSES ME OFF!!!!

I guess I just assumed Stefan was around for this one because Ian tweeted about the flashback stuff being a good Bros. Salvatore episode. I wasn't expecting Stefan not to be there, so it didn't really surprise me. It would be nice to have one with Stefan though.

I didn't know that tweet was about this episode, and I just ugh! I want a DAMON-centric, Damon-ONLY episode. They've given enough flashback love to Stefan. I want more DAMON! It's a small thing, but it's one of the small things that's bugged me since season 01, and then season 02 made it worse and now, well, season 03 ain't helping the issues. :(

ETA: And that tweet was during my spoiler-free zone!

Maybe it's just the balance against Damon having the better arc, story, lines and possibly, the girl.

Hah! I'll take that. (No, I'm petty and still peeved. :grumblegrumble:)

I figured Stefan was gonna be in the flashbacks because the promo had Stefan saying "Remember Sage?" or something to that effect, so I assumed he knew her as well.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on February 23rd, 2012 11:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's why I thought he would be, but I wanted to be wrong, damnit!! I want a Damon-only flashback episode! GRRR!

I am legitimately more upset that a) Sage is a lady now and b) we do not get to see the amazingly terrible book canon: that Damon is passing himself off as AN ITALIAN COUNT. Oh my God, I might need to cave and read those in the next two weeks.
Arabian: Katherine03arabian on February 25th, 2012 06:25 pm (UTC)
I've never read the books, so I don't have this stuff to get frustrated with. Well, Ian's done the whole fake Italian accent before, it would have been amusing to get that on the show, hah!

I'm right there with you girl! There is absolutely no reason for Stefan to be involved in a flashback to see how Damon became the cocky, sauve, charming, lady-killer that he is today. I want a completely Damon-centric flashback. Plain and simple.

I don't understand why Stefan has to be featured in flashbacks focused on Damon. Wasn't the whole premise of their relationship, after Damon transitioned, that Damon really wanted nothing to do with Stefan? He did promise Stefan an eternity of misery. Did we forget that little piece of info JP and KW?

Just this SO MUCH!

Exactly. I wonder if it's the show taking the opportunity to write a less-martyred Stefan to give PW something more to do? I dunno.

The thing is that apparently this is NOT a Damon-centric flashback episode, but rather a brothers-one. Which, yes, I'm sure I'll like but once again ... I WANT A DAMON-CENTRIC FLASHBACK EPISODE!!!!

Aww crap, he is? I figured he would be in the episode with the "remember Sage" part, but not the flashbacks. Maybe Damon will at least get more screen time? And hey, woman boxer, that's always cool
Arabian: Damon&Alaric03arabian on February 25th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
Apparently, this isn't even a Damon-centric flashback episode, but rather brothers Salvatore-centric flashbacks. Which, yes, I'm sure I'll like but once again ... I WANT A DAMON-CENTRIC FLASHBACK EPISODE!!!!

I'm just dropping in to say that I completely feel you on this. I'd love Damon to be the sole focus for once. Stefan has had his opportunities, and it just feels (sometimes) like this show tries to make it all about Stefan, Stefan, Stefan. If only Damon could shine in a flashback WITHOUT Stefan. Just once. Even if it's only for a couple of minutes. Not a lot to ask for, right?

Well, I don't agree with that. Damon is easily THE male lead of this show; it hasn't been about Stefanx3 since the beginning of season 01.

If only Damon could shine in a flashback WITHOUT Stefan. Just once. Even if it's only for a couple of minutes.

To be fair, we did get that in "As I Lay Dying," but it wasn't enough for me. I want a full-on legitimate DAMON-CENTRIC (which, this apparently isn't even that, but again, the brothers) DAMON-ONLY flashback episode. Why is that so much to ask for?

You're not alone in that feeling. Those were exactly my thoughts when I saw the pics. I really hope the episode is about Damon's past. From Julie Plec's quotes I assumed it would be a 3x03 type episode only focused on Damon this time. Even the promo was all Damon which got my hopes up. But now I saw the pics and read the episode synopsis, I think the flashback will be only a scene or two at the most, and more about the brothers than about Damon. Even the "Damon makes an emotional confession to Stefan" line in the synopsis...gives me a bad feeling. If it turns out to be another Stefan glorifying episode I'm gonna be PISSED!
Arabian: Damon02arabian on February 25th, 2012 06:32 pm (UTC)
I don't think it's going to be a glorifying Stefan episode (although, to be fair, I don't think we've ever had any of those personally), but yeah, this isn't even a Damon-centric flashback episode from what I've heard now, but rather a brothers-one. Which, yes, I'm sure I'll like but once again ... I WANT A DAMON-CENTRIC FLASHBACK EPISODE!!!! Sigh.

I don't want Stefan to have many lines in the flashback parts of the episode. That's all I have to say.
sun_signsun_sign on February 27th, 2012 07:30 am (UTC)
Judging from the pics, he'll just be following Damon around all the time looking worried. And rightfully so, because DAMON IS THE BOSS OF THIS EPISODE.
