Speculation for TVD 5.10 and beyond....  
So, I was thinking and I'm ah-speculating!

Uhm, so, I've been in a crappy mood all week and in an uber-negative mood and going through worst-case scenarios in my mind and reading back through my last couple of posts and a few things hit me and I have a new speculation... I wonder now if the whole point of Caroline's "Damon is the most dangerous thing ever" isn't because she needs to be hit upside the head with a 'you are a hypocrite!' stick (although, she so does, Julie!!!), but because Damon is going to show her a new side of dangerous. All of them a new side of dangerous.

I wonder if we saw Damon turn the switch of with Enzo, and Stefan fight with it at the beginning of the season on and off but choose not to is because we're going to see Damon turn off the switch and see Damon become the worst, most dangerous we've ever seen him. And if that does happen, ooh, Elena better forgive him. She certainly forgave Stefan for all his off-switch shenanigans. I mean I could be totally wrong, but I dunno. I will say if they do this, I'm even more annoyed that they didn't give us more D/E goodness in these first 10 episodes and instead did it all OFFSCREEN over the hiatus except for the first couple of episdodes. HARRUMPH!

But I could be wrong! :D

I mean even if I'm not, it's not WORST-case scenario, it could be really cool, and Ian would be awesome and evil!Damon would be REALLY awesome to watch, and the angst would be great and I'm sure the end result would be good for D/E. I just would have preferred more D/E in these first 9 episodes. If I'm right in some way, you know. But I could be wrong. Who knows?

You really could be on to something, it definitely sounds quite plausible .To be honest, I don't know if I should look forward to it or if I should be afraid...
On the one hand that would be so cool (and as you said Ian would be AWESOME, I am sure) to see Damon as the bad one, falling into a really dark void, esp since we know so much more about him now than we did in Season 1, when he was the bad one. On the other hand ... Man, they didn't give us nearly enough DE onscreen and I am afraid that the cliffhanger will be that Damon switches off his emotions and goes on a killing spree and we are all left hanging until January. If we got some decent DE-interaction before that, I wouldn't mind, but I kinda don't believe in that right now.
Does that make any sense?
I am biting my nails until I have seen the episode...

I agree with the comment above. This could very well happen and though it would be amazing to see (I'm sure Ian will do a perfect job), I would've preferred something else too, regarding Delena. And yep, she better forgive him...JUST as he did for Stefan (and he did some pretty awful stuff). Right now, it feels like this could go in a million different directions and I'm so anxious to see the episode. I will have to wait until tomorrow morning, I'm so afraid I'll run into some spoilers.

A bit off topic, but I don't know where to put my question. Enzos number was 21244. That very number was on the bloodbag Damon saw in the the fridge in 5x08 when he talked to Dr. Wes. I would say Damon and Enzo knew their numbers respectively. So ... is it safe to assume that Damon KNEW that Enzo was alive when he told Elena his story during the last episode? What do you think?

Uhm, maybe he recognized the number and assumed that they kept his blood all this time?

Ooh, I like where you are going here! If he did turn off his humanity, I hope it wouldn’t be for more than a few episodes, and only used as a device for him to continue moving forward and growing. A 'taking one step back to go two steps forward' kind of thing. It would give Elena, Stefan and the gang a chance to focus on DAMON for a change, which I think we've needed for a really long time.

Even if he doesn’t turn off his humanity, I hope they use this storyline to really delve deep into his character’s psyche and have him begin to deal with all his issues of self worth and guilt. Why he felt so justified in killing innocent Whitmore’s and how ultimately, that didn’t change or fix anything. And especially if he was doing it to honor his friend’s memory, how it was all for nothing when he finds out Enzo is alive. Dealing with the hurt and pain he’s been suppressing for so many years (maybe even flash-backs with his mother?) could take him to some really dark and dangerous places. And, honestly, for me, it just doesn’t get any better than Ian Somerhalder in those scenes with Jessica and Andie (“Get out of here before I kill you”). :) He is so good at broken and beaten Damon. I would love to see Elena (and Stefan) there to help him to pick up the pieces.

Any storyline involving Damon is a win for me. This has the potential for being something awesome! ;D

Nope, you were wrong, just like you were wrong to think Elena would in any way be drawn back to Stefan. Now you know the real arc for Damon and Elena as characters and as a couple - breaking down the greatest obstacle of all: his self-loathing.

So, I do hope you're feeling better, even with your distaste for Nadia present. Don't stress yourself.

Yeah, I was wrong about this, but I'm still not pleased because we still still didn't see them them happy as a couple after five years of waiting. Instead they chose to have that offscreen. We were told they were happy, but didn't see it. Instead they had them in separate storylines throughout most of this season. I'm fine with bittersweet, but we need more sweet to make the bitter go down and we haven't gotten enough sweet at all.

Point taken. Still, maybe there'll be more sweet in the future.

I think you're definitely onto something, however I'm hoping for a surprising twist & for Elena (what with that ripper potion injection - because Stefan, as always, rescued Elena too late haha ^^) to join Damon in whatever *evil* shenanigans he'll decide to engage ;D

What can I do to put you in a better mood? *huggles* I hope you will feel better soon! ♥
