One with... eyes?
Heh, yeah, I realized when I was going to sleep that I probably should have worded that differently, because I
find him attractive. And yeah, they probably will put him through some major payback and redemption before seriously hooking him up with anyone. I (maybe foolishly) hope that they will have him go through these changes before even meeting said love interest, or at least in a way that's clearly separate from her, rather than either deliberately trying to change himself for her sake or having the writing make it obvious that they are redeeming him just so he can know the love of said woman.
For some reason, Tim Riggins from Friday Night Lights
is coming to mind, even though I know that's kind of a weird comparison because Tim Riggins was/is nowhere near the level of squick that Damon's at. Still, it was obvious that he loved Lyla, but even when she pointed out his fucked up behavior herself and he started working on it, it felt like he simply realized that she was right, rather than thinking, "Oh, she doesn't like this about me, so if I change it, she might want to be with me."
I think Damon's redemption should have way more to do with his brother than with a pretty woman, and the writing on this show is thankfully pretty sharp, so maybe that's how it will go down. (It's just years and years of seeing fictional people change their wicked ways simply to get into another person's pants that makes me suspicious, rather than the writing itself, which has been good.)
I am definitely curious to see more about Damon and Katherine, although it seems like the flashback nature of it may keep them from delving into it the way they would with a romance in the present.
