Damon: I’ve made a lot of choices that have gotten me here. I deserve this. I deserve to die.
Elena: No. You don’t.
Damon: I do, Elena. It’s okay. Because if I had chosen differently I wouldn’t have met you. I’m so sorry. I’ve done so many things to hurt you.
Elena: It’s okay. I forgive you.
Damon: I know you love Stefan, and it will always be Stefan. But I love you. You should know that.
Elena: I do.
Damon: You should have met me in 1864. You would have liked me.
Elena: I like you now. Just the way you are.
