|“||He wants blood and death. He wants to kill his entire family. He wants to pay back everyone who was a part of trapping him again. And I don’t think he has much care for what the aftermath of that might be. I think he is literally thinking, “I want to do these things and make these people suffer, and I don’t really care what happens to me, in the process.” What he did by walking [into that wedding] was a suicide mission. He walked into a room of vampires where anything could go wrong. He could have been dead in a second, but he doesn’t seem to care. He’s so mentally gone, at this point, that he just wants revenge, pure and simple.||”|
