Here’s what the 36-year-old actor had to share with EW:
On getting back to season one Damon: “That’s what I’m very excited about. Season 1 and 2 of the show is where people fell in love with this guy; it’s where I fell in love with this guy.”
On Damon moving on: “Elena told him some things that allow him to move on. He’s a 170-year-old man with an endless amount of wisdom.”
On the future of the show: “The last two shots of this show truly depict where this show is going to be and we see characters moving into spaces and places we never thought they’d be.”
