Stefan worked hard, and for hundreds of years to gain his emotions back after becoming a vampire. Then Klaus comes into the picture and convinces Stefan to go back to his old ways as “The Reaper”.
Stefan was ripper before klaus met him!! Stefan was in ripper mode when klaus met him!! Klaus didnt compel him!! It was all stephan!!!
Hello, I will try to explain.
Stefan's true personality is NOT the "Ripper". He had blood lust that he couldn't control and Lexi spent years helping him get away from it instead of helping him control it. DON'T MISUNDERSTAND, Lexi is an amazing person, but her methods were a little off.
Stefan hates hurting people and his old self couldn't control the bloodlust so he'd turn his humanity off and become a ripper. Every time he was a ripper, his humanity was off. He met Klaus and Rebekah when his humanity was OFF. He had no emotions at that time, therefore anything he did was not the real Stefan. We saw Elena try to kill Caroline AND Bonnie without humanity, and the real Elena would Never do that.
Elena was the one who told Stefan, "A little blood every day" to help his bloodlust and IT HELPED.
When Klaus traded Stefan's Freedom for Damon's Life in the Season 2 Finale, he made Stefan do unthinkable things BUT Stefan never gave in to the bloodlust.. Remember, he hates hurting people, but he knew if he actually turned his humanity off, he might not return. He even called Elena and cried silently while she spoke over the phone. Stefan even fought Klaus' compulsion to feed on Elena. He fought his bloodlust as best as he could in Season 3.
Klaus compelled him to turn his humanity off which DID NOT make him a ripper, it made him NOT CARE about becoming a ripper, again. Some of you misunderstand and judge when you did not pay attention to the show, but I hope this will help some understand.
