Stefan not realizing that Damon was in trouble or missing for 5 years is possibly the saddest thing I’ve seen on this show. I’d be willing to bet that Damon has known where Stefan was at any given time for their entire existence (save 5 years, I guess) because he cared enough to check up on him and make sure that he was okay, even if he wasn’t with him. Even this summer, Damon was trying to get Stefan on the phone when he figured Stefan was off licking his wounds and hating him. Stefan honestly never gave a fuck. For him, Damon was out of sight, out of mind and it was better that way. And the whole time Damon was supposedly making his life “miserable,” Damon was protecting Stefan’s fragile psyche from his own sense of self-absorbed and self-important guilt. And yet, Damon is the bad brother. Give me a break.
