And we didn’t want her to walk off into the sunset and get a job somewhere because that felt fake.We thought, “What could she do that proves to her friends and to the viewers who she is as a person?” And of course she would make a sacrifice so her best friend could live out the rest of her life.We thought it was fitting that, at the end of the day, after all these sacrifices made on her behalf, she takes the bullet for her friend and goes out Sleeping Beauty-style.Taking Elena out of the equation allows the brothers to get back to where they were before they came to Mystic Falls, but with a new closeness and lease on life.Once Damian matures some more and becomes a teenager, will the writers at DC put him into a relationship with another costumed hero or will he be a loner?Different writters are going to be doing stories involving damien for decades to come and he is going to have many loves.
I found this to be an intriguing storyline, but at the same time Damian seems like somewhat of a loner to me. @batarang614: I could see it..of the whole mantle thing he seems to have going on...though a future relationship with Supergirl that ended badly for one reason or another could explain all the tension between him and Conner depicted in the future once he's Batman and Conner is Superman He showed interest in girls in Battle for the Cowl, I think it was.
Like Tim and Dick he is going to change over time and different women will play roles in his life.
He has already shown to have an interest in girls, but he is to young and his character is too under developed at the moment for him to have a love interest yet.
Batman's imposing at the best of times and Talia.... Jason did'nt have any though,unless you count donna(countdown mostly has been retconned )or talia(bullcrap,which made no sense and disgusting to the ultimate level) i actually dont count it due to continuity lapses.
@entropy_aegis: yeah true, i dont really count jason as part of the brotherhood even though bruce says he will always be part of the family but your right he is the exception damien isnt going to be like jason though, dc isnt going to do the same thing to damien that they did to jason.
Yet in an age where characters are being killed off left and right, it's a little bit surprising that Elena didn't bite the dust (as a vampire or otherwise).
