I'm not going to lie, Team Bamon is not doing very well right now. Bonnie is still holding a serious grudge against Damon for just up and abandoning her without even saying goodbye. To be honest, I'm still a little mad at him too. (Well, as mad as you can be at someone who looks like Ian Somerhalder.) But the point is that I totally understand where she's coming from and wouldn't blame her in the slightest if Bonnie chose to never forgive Damon on The Vampire Diaries . It's not fair for him to come busting back into her life like this, acting like she's such a priority to him. Not when it was a mere three years ago that he decided to close that coffin on himself with the intention of never seeing Bonnie again. That is not the sort of thing that friends do to each other.
I will give Damon some credit though... he spent the majority of the episode trying very hard to make amends. But Bonnie wasn't about to make those attempts easy. (Good for you, girl!). After he blamed Enzo for putting her life at risk with those pills, Bonnie leapt to her new boyfriend's defense, saying that he (unlike Damon) has been there for her every single day for the last three years. So even if she ends up dying, she knows that he won't leave her no matter what. And as difficult as that probably was for Damon to hear, it needed to be said.
The way he chose to run away from his problems — or rather in this case, sleep off his problems — was cowardly and wrong. Bonnie is the only one with enough guts to make him feel truly awful about it and force him to see the error of his ways. It's one of the reasons I love their friendship so much. They can be brutally honest with each other, but in the end, they make each other better people. So do I think this feud will last forever? No. Bamon is way to special to not work things out. I'm just saying that it's going to take a lot more than a bouquet of flowers and a handful of sarcastic comments to get this friendship back to where it was.
