TV Line recently spoken to Ian Somerhalder (star of The Vampire Diaries) about his character Damon and what to expect in season 3. When asked about how Alaric feels about Damon and Elena getting closer, this is what Ian have to say:
TVLINE | I hear he’s not too keen on the fact that Damon and Elena are growing so close.
He’s not too keen because he’s a smart man, and he feels a responsibility to protect her. He feels a responsibility to make sure she OK, and Damon doesn’t even pretend to make the best decisions in his life. He just does it. Alaric having that trepidation and concern for Elena’s well-being is very, very well-justified. I couldn’t argue with Ric, but Damon could until the cows come home.
And here’s what he had to say about Damon being frustrated:
TVLINE | How will Damon be letting out some of his frustration?
Damon’s way of letting out frustration and excess energy is not that different than anybody’s. [But] what’s different about it is that his is quite destructive at times, and it leads to someone getting hurt. Because of that, Elena won’t stand for it. She wants nothing to do with it. So that makes it difficult for him. He’s frustrated to no end on many levels, and now he can’t even go out and get his frustration out or express himself the way he’s used to. The blood is what makes it easier to cope with. So, it’s a tough time for Mr. Damon.
