The Vampire Diaries: 10 Unpopular Opinions (According To Reddit)
4. Damon Became A Better Person Because Of Bonnie
Although most people believe that Damon's redemption began once he started to fall in love with Elena, not everyone is on board with this opinion. A few people have actually stated that Bonnie was the one who influenced him the greatest. When Damon and Bonnie were trapped in the other world, a couple of fans believe this was where Damon's personal development began.
It was during these moments that he started to care about someone other than himself and put someone's needs above his own. The fact that Bonnie calls him out when she sees he is regressing into his former self and won't placate him shows why Damon respected her.
