is it just me or does anyone else notice in both of these instances how damon looks over at elena to make sure she’s okay? he doesn’t want to intrude on her grief or interrupt her and caroline comforting each other. but he just looks over at her before placing the grimoire on bonnie’s memorial and then again after. just to make sure that she doesn’t need him, that she is all right, or as all right as she can be in these circumstances. the way his eyes just keep going over to her, checking on her… there if she needs him but if not just there.
