Ian Somerhalder describes how Damon feels at the start of the new season:

“He does love her and it’s an unfortunate situation that they find themselves in because it’s that thing of every time he looks at her, ‘Oh, if I just push her off the side of this building, I’d get Elena back’…It’s this volley between ‘I love this woman as a friend, but if s “However, not only just because he loves Bonnie, but he really, truly wants to protect her. Because if in any event, something happens to her, and Elena wakes up and it’s 2016 or 2017 or even 2020, she’s going to be pissed. And Damon doesn’t want to disappoint her…keeping her alive is a very, very layered and nuanced dynamic between Bonnie and Damon. He adores her and doesn’t want anything to happen to her.”Something happens to her, I get my girl back.’”

Kat Graham describes their relationship:

“I think they are trying to help each other cope. They have a couple moments of…they kind of go at it. They’ve always kind of gone at it, but they both feel the same way and they both lost the same person that meant the most to both of them. So it’s interesting to watch how they both deal and how Bonnie kind of checks him.”
