He didn’t say it back and he regrets it. Damon only said “I know”, he didn’t tell her he loved her back, he only said it after but she could no longer hear him. That’s why the first thing he’s gonna do is tell Elena how much he loves her. Except this time…. she’ll be the one that won’t say it back.
