Still shell-shocked from the Vampire Diaries season finale ? Us too. Whether or not Damon is really dead  may be up for debate, but what's not is how much we love Damon, and Ian Somerhalder 's portrayal of him. He's the most complex character on this show — and dare we say, the sexiest (sorry, Stefan ). Until we know what the fate of Damon really is, let's celebrate one of TV's oldest bad boys: Damon Salvatore.
Meet Damon Salvatore.
He's one half of the brothers Salvatore. That's Stefan, the "good one ."
He's the bad one, you would say.
He's not what you would call a people person.
He'll kill you without batting an eye.
And never regret it.
He kills early; he kills often.
He's kind of rude.
He can be mean.
But like most bad boys, he's sexy.
He looks great shirtless .
Even when he's sad.
He looks great taking a call.
He's got moves you've never seen.
Oh, and he knows how sexy he is.
He works on it.
Let's just say he gets around.
Until he falls for Elena, that is.
He may not be great at self-control, but he has great eyebrow control.
But he can also be really sweet.
He's emotional too.
And so cute.
Though he still has the devil in his eyes when he smiles.
But what really makes Damon funny is how snarky he is.
He has the best one-liners.
And he always says what we're all thinking.
He has great advice.
And he has great comebacks.
He'll get you where it hurts.
I would too.
Sometimes the snark is all about honesty.
It actually is, though, considering what happens in the most recent finale.
We sure are.
