Back home, things aren't as Damon expected them to be. Elena has compelled her memories of their time together and moved on.
After a few initial set backs, Damon sets his mind to wooing her back. As the season progresses, Elena falls for Damon all over again as they search for a way to free Bonnie and she becomes a large part of his support as his good friend Liz Forbes becomes more and more ill with cancer.
Kai, who escaped the Prison World without Bonnie and merged with Luke, has absorbed some of Luke's qualities and is now moved by guilt to help free Bonnie.
With his help, he, along with Damon, Elena, and Jeremy, are able to visit the Prison World and remind Bonnie that there is still magic residing in Qetsiyah's headstone in Nova Scotia. After the death of Liz, Caroline is unable to bear the pain of losing her mother and chooses to turn off her humanity just as Bonnie returns. Bonnie brought back with her a strange video she'd caught while leaving a second Prison World she'd been moved to set in October 31, She shows the video to Damon and he recognizes his own mother, Lillian Salvatore, standing in the background.

She is reluctant to leave without them, but Damon threatens to leave her behind if she doesn't go. Bonnie, Damon, and Elena leave with Lily, leaving Kai behind.
When they return, Bonnie gives Damon a gift she'd gotten for him during her trip to Nova Scotia in the Prison World: the cure to vampirism.
He struggles with whether or not to give it to Elena and provide her with the life she'd been robbed of.
After using Lily to get Stefan's humanity back and he is used to bring Caroline back, Lily is adamant about returning to her Prison World to retrieve what she considers to be her family. Damon confronts Bonnie, who had taken the Ascendant, and tells her that Lily is threatening to destroy the cure if he doesn't return with the means to get her "family" back.
However, when he decides to let Bonnie destroy the Ascendant, he comes home to find that Lily had actually given the cure to Elena instead. He confesses that he was selfish and afraid of losing her but agrees that she should take it and that he'll take it with her. Elena takes the cure and, unexpectedly, her memories return and she remembers when she'd traveled to Nova Scotia with Damon in search of the cure the first time, he'd told her that he used to miss being human, but, now, he couldn't imagine anything more miserable.
She tells him he needs to think about it before making that decision and enlists Stefan to try to make sure Damon is certain of his choice to become human.
Damon almost decides he'd rather stay a vampire until he witnesses an interaction between an older couple. Before Jo and Ric's wedding, he tells Elena he'd made his choice to live one lifetime with her. During the wedding, Kai shows up and stabs Jo before causing an explosion.
The second to last episode ends with Elena lying unconscious on the ground. At the hospital the doctors tell him that she is medically healthy and they see no reason why she's not awake. Kai stumbles into the hospital injured. After consuming Lily's blood and killing himself, Kai's ability to siphon magic allowed him to become another Heretic vampire with witch-like powerbut he was soon bitten by a transforming Tyler, who had re-triggered his werewolf curse.
Kai tells Damon and he's linked Elena's life to Bonnie's and as long as Bonnie lives, Elena will remain asleep but perfectly healthy. He also tells him that the spell is permanent and any attempt to find a loophole in the spell will result in the death of both Bonnie and Elena. Damon returns to the wedding to find Bonnie badly injured on the floor and Kai's reminder that letting Bonnie die will allow Elena to regain consciousness. Damon tells Bonnie he's sorry and leaves the room. Kai is irritated that his plan to torture Damon with an impossible choice had failed and, while he's distracted, Damon decapitates him from behind.
Damon saves Bonnie's life and they go to the Salvatore boarding house to say their goodbyes to Elena, deciding that they will allow Bonnie to live her life and, when she dies, Elena will wake. Damon allows himself to enter Elena's subconscious to say his goodbye, dancing with her and telling her that he'll never be ready to live the next 60 years of his life without her.
Stefan and Damon move the coffin holding Elena to a crypt and have Bonnie seal the door magically to keep away those seeking the Cure. The season ends with the impression that quite a bit of time has passed. Mystic Falls is desolate and run down after the return of the other Heretics, Lily's "family". The last scene shows Damon looking torn standing on the clock tower he once sat on with Elena.
Damon has to deal with finding out who his is without Elena and coming to terms that he cannot kill his best friend Bonnie to bring her back quicker.

Caroline gets kidnapped when Damon and Bonnie murder one of Lillian's 'children', and finds out from Valerie, Stefan's first love, she's pregnant with Alaric and Jo's twin Gemini babies.

Nora and Mary Louise Heretics spend the season dealing with their relationship problems and their own family, along with the death of two of their brothers. Beau, another Heretic is a mute with the same X mark on his throat as Julian has on his chest, which took his voice.

She then dies and Stefan and Damon buries her. Julian grieves her death and flies off the rails, going on a murder spree and creating an army. Stating that the only reason he didn't give in to the madness of the Phoenix Stone was because of his love for Lily. At the start of season 1, Damon was a self-proclaimed loner,  often keeps to himself. Despite his initially antagonistic relationships with humans such as Alaric Saltzman and Sheriff Elizabeth Forbes, Caroline's mother.
Damon gradually involved himself into the lives of many people in Mystic Falls by developing friendships with several humans. After spending time with Elena Gilbert, Damon becomes more empathetic and falls deeply, madly and passionately in love with her.
He always puts her safety first before anyone else, even his. Damon's most prominent love, aside from Elena, was Rose. He met her while searching for Klaus and hooked up with her shortly after.
Unfortunately Damon ticked off Jules, a werewolf, and she showed up on a full moon for revenge. Damon has had a challenging relationship with his younger brother Stefan Salvatore for over a century. Before they became vampires, they both loved the vampire Katherine Pierce.
Damon shows that he has nurtured a long-standing desire to reunite with Katherine throughout the first season. In the first season, we learn that it was Stefan who convinced Damon to feed and complete his transformation after Katherine turned both brothers into vampires. Damon is always there for Stefan when it really matters, e. They both actually love each other but won't admit it, however: .
After learning of Katherine's deceit, Damon starts to fall for Elena. In general, Damon is fiercely protective of Elena and always puts her safety ahead of all else. Damon comes to Elena's rescue at the Miss Mystic Falls pageant when Elena is left stranded without a partner, and the two dance. In the episode "Rose", Damon confesses his love for her only to compel her to forget about it because he doesn't believe he is worthy of her.
Throughout the third season his relationship with Elena grows; she learns to fully trust him, and they begin to rely on each other as a team. They share two passionate kisses, but Elena remains in denial about her feelings for him. After a long struggle, Elena still chooses Stefan much to Damon's dismay. In the following season, Elena realizes that her feelings for Damon cannot be denied any longer.
She and Stefan break up, and in the following episode Damon and Elena finally get together and have sex. Damon and Elena then both individually discover that Elena is sired to Damon, making Elena's feelings unfortunately known; however, Elena insists that her love for Damon is the most real thing that she's ever felt in her entire life. In an interview before the season finale, Julie Plec stated that "This year, she's had a very traumatic roller coaster of life experience and it's changed her irrevocably-and at the center of it all was the diehard belief that she loved Damon, that she loved him more than she'd ever loved anyone.
Damon and Elena spend the next few months together, having the summer of their lives. When Elena has to leave for college, Damon stays behind in Mystic Falls and they have a functional long distance relationship. However, in the episode "Original Sin", Tessa, who is revealed to be Qetsiyah, tells Damon that the doppelgangers are fated to fall in love and that he is only a bump in the road that makes their story interesting.
Damon refuses to believe in this and assures Elena that he will fight for her and their future together as she is his life. It is later revealed that there is nothing fated about Stefan and Elena, but that they were merely drawn together by a spell. After a tumultuous, back and forth relationship, Damon and Elena get back together at the end of the season, and they choose to sacrifice themselves together to save Stefan and Alaric and their other friends on the Other Side.
Damon says his last goodbye to Elena, telling her that she is by far the best thing that has ever happened to him, and that being loved by her is "the epitome of a fulfilled life", as Elena sobs inconsolably. In season 6, Elena is unable to move on from Damon's death months later. She pretends to be happy, but she is secretly taking witch herbs to hallucinate Damon.
When the herbs make her dangerous to humans, Elena decides to have Alaric compel away her memories of Damon, because she will never be able to move on otherwise. When Damon returns, he attempts to help her remember their love story, but the compulsion will not break.
Not remembering any of the good things about Damon, Elena still decides to give him another chance.
She slowly falls in love with him again, ultimately declaring that no matter whether she has memories of him or not, she always finds her way back to him. When Bonnie returns from the prison world, she gifts Damon with the cure for vampirism, knowing that he wanted to give it to Elena. However, Damon is afraid that this will mean losing Elena. They discuss what a human life together would be like. Elena initially rejects the cure, but Damon decides to take it with her so that they can have a human life together, including children.
Damon always wanted Elena to have the human life she always dreamed of. Elena takes the cure, which breaks the compulsion, and her memories of Damon return to her. Later, when the they were about to leave, Damon gave her a book that was labeled "Petrova," saying that Katherine was originally from Europe -being born as Katerina Petrova- and asked her if they could be friends again, to which Elena simply thanked him. When they arrived at her house, Elena asked him if he saw the ring, and he admitted he didn't and that he got lucky with the ring, given the fact that he could have truly killed Jeremy.
Elena thanked him for his honesty, but told him that he'd lost her forever, outraged that he'd kept information about Katherine that she needed. Damon, hurt and angered by this, bitterly told her that she and Katherine had a lot more in common than their physical appearances before leaving her alone on the porch.
When he and Stefan were outed as vampires by Mason to Sheriff Forbes, they were injected with vervain and brutally interrogated about their ability to walk in the daylight. Elena and Caroline intervened, and Caroline killed the deputies, exposing her vampirism to her mother in the process. Damon was seemingly on the verge of killing Caroline's mother, but chose to spare her, much to everyone's relief. After a talk during which Elena learned that Stefan was going to drink human blood again in order to be able to protect her, she told Damon that what he did to Caroline's mother was the person that she'd become friends with.
He then told her that deep down, she knew that Stefan needed to drink the human blood, before leaving. Later on, he provoked Katherine, which resulted in her compelling Jenna to stab herself. She survived, but this incident caused Elena to break up with Stefan, worried that as long as she and Stefan were together, Katherine would hurt or possibly kill everyone she loved.
When she was leaving, Damon confessed to her that he'd goaded Katherine and a tearful Elena said that Katherine had won. Not long after saving her from Rose and Elijah, she and Stefan shared an embrace, although she acknowledged Damon, smiling and mouthing "thank you," to him, showing her gratitude towards both brothers.
Before returning her vervain necklace, Damon professed his love to her and kissed her forehead. He then tearfully compelled her to forget the conversation, and gave her the necklace. Stefan tells Elena that they have no choice to get the Moonstone from Katherine to save her life. But she says, "What about Klaus?
Elena says "Is that before or after he kills everyone I care about, including both of you pointing at Damon and staring at Damon. Then Damon gives her a What you care about me face. Then Damon learned from Rose that Elena planned to surrender herself to Klaus, he was infuriated and went to Elena and ordered her to leave Slater's house.
She angrily refused, determined to protect her loved ones from Klaus, and attempted to punch him. However, when Cody and a group of other vampires, including the believed-dead Elijah, arrived to collect, Damon tried to keep her from being taken and was surprised when Elijah killed the others. When they went back to her house, they argued about her decision to sacrifice herself-only to be interrupted by Jeremy telling them that Stefan was in the tomb. Elena was devastated and Damon prevented her from running inside.
In By the Light of the MoonDamon comes to Elena's house to be one of her 'babysitters,' as Bonnie casts a spell on Elena to keep her in the house. Damon later tells Jeremy to keep an eye on Elena as he leaves. He taunts Elena about not being able to leave.
In The DescentDamon asks Elena to watch over Rose after she has been bitten Julesbut he rejects the fact that he's upset about Rose's impending death. After he kills Rose, Elena confronts him. But he snaps at her saying that he feels emotions, and that 'it sucks. Damon makes sure Elena is okay, then jokes about killing John.
Elena is somewhat relieved to see that Damon does not trust John either, so she goes with Damon to confront John at the Grill. When they arrive at the Grill, Elena tells Damon to "be the better man" and to "not do anything stupid". Not surprisingly, Damon sarcastically tells her that stupid is more fun. When Jenna tries to get him to date her friend, Andie Star, he blows her off. Elena has watched the whole interaction and when he reaches her, she tells him that he shouldn't be rude.
He then replies that his steering away from all women is in the best interests of women everywhere. He and Elena eye each other for a moment, but then Elena's phone rings. Elena briefs Damon on the situation and forbids him from killing Tyler. He tells her to stop assuming he'll do things just because she asks. Damon is lucid and comforts Elena while they dance, drawing a few giggles despite their serious situation.
Later Elena confronts Damon when she learns he knew Bonnie had to die and slaps him. After Damon explains what happened she apologizes to him. He then tells her that if it means Elena will be safe, he would not mind letting Bonnie die, even doing it himself, as he will always choose Elena. Elena doesn't say anything for a moment but then wishes him goodnight and leaves. He approaches after Elijah describes how powerful Klaus will be, wondering why they can't just kill him beforehand. He suggests that they go through with their original plan to let Bonnie kill him, channeling the power of the witches, but Elena objects because a spell that powerful would claim Bonnie's life.
Damon replies sarcastically, saying he'll write her a good eulogy. Elena later comes to his room to assure him that he won't lose her, he forces her to drink his blood as a more definitive way of making sure she'll come back to life - as a vampire. Stefan intervenes and the two have a violent fight, which ends in Damon stabbing his brother through the stomach with a large piece of wood.
He leaves angry once again, speaking briefly to Elijah in the sitting room. Elijah tells him that vampire blood nullifies the Elixir, pointing out that Elena will never forgive him for what he's just done. Because I can't stand the idea of you hating me forever. In the last episode Damon goes to Elena's house to earnestly ask for her forgiveness, not because he wants it, but because he needs it. Unaware that he's dying, she asks for more time to consider forgiving him, and Damon agrees wholeheartedly.
Later Stefan tells Elena that Damon is dying as he is bitten by a werewolf. At the "Gone with the Wind" screening Elena finds Damon and drags him away, but as she does Damon gets confused, mixing the present with the past, when he chased Katherine through some woods.
He remembers begging Katherine to feed him her blood so they could be together forever. Back in the present, he tries to bite Elena as she begs him to stop, explaining that he is hurting her. Damon suddenly appears to return to the present, but collapses. Elena cradles him, while also covering her neck with her hand. Elena takes Damon back to his room, where she watches over him. Damon worries that he'll be dangerous like Rose, but Elena refuses to leave his side.
She gets into bed with him and holds his head to her chest, where Damon talks about the bad decisions he's made. He tells Elena to apologize to his brother for him, admitting that he deserves to die, after everything he's done. He apologizes to Elena again and tells her that he loves her, which brings tears to her eyes.
He then tells her that she would've liked him better as a human, to which she responds she likes him now, the way he is. She kisses him just before Katherine arrives to deliver the cure, which she says Stefan paid for by giving himself over to Klaus. She tells Elena that it's alright to love both Salvatore's, because she did. She leaves and Elena and Damon remain to contemplate what's going to happen to Stefan. Damon challenges her, surprises her, he makes her question her life, beliefs.
Elena and Damon 's relationship begins to take off to a whole new level, where Elena starts to let Damon in. In The Birthdaya voice behind Elena says good morning. She turns around and sees Damon naked, she throws him a towel so he can cover up, annoyed by his inappropriate behavior. Later that night at the boarding house as Elena gets ready for her party, Damon walks in and teases her. Elena assures him that she isn't going to get upset and that she is determined to have fun.
He quips "It's your party, you can cry if you want to. He opens a little box and reveals he has found her necklace. Elena is thrilled saying that she thought she would never see it again, Damon helps her put it on and they go down to the party. Later, that night he goes to his room and Elena is there. Furious she asks him why he didn't tell her that he was tracking Klaus' victims, to which he replies that the victims are Stefan's and not Klaus'.
Elena refuses to accept Stefan's killings as his own and pleads with Damon to stop talking about Stefan like that. Damon replies angrily that she should stop looking for Stefan because he's not going to return, at least not in her lifetime. Damon looks and feels guilty and walks out of the room when Elena starts to cry. In The HybridElena asks Alaric if they can take a hike through The Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, which he agrees to after she says that she's going with or without him.
During the hike, Elena and Alaric are talking near a small cliff with a pool of water under it when someone randomly pushes Elena into the water below. When she looks up, it turns out that Damon was the one who pushed her into the water. She asks Damon how he found them and why he was here. He thanks Rick for the tip, and tells Elena to get out of the water because they are leaving. Elena, being stubborn, refuses to get out of the water.
Damon gets into the water they talk and she convinces him to stay for a while, he reluctantly agrees on the condition that they leave before the full moon Damon adds that unless she wanted to relive their romantic kiss on his deathbed. The three then continued their walk up the mountain as Stefan hears Damon and Elena talking.
They run across Ray and he attacks Damon, but Elena throws him the Wolf's bane bomb and Ray passes out.
They tie him to a tree where he wakes up and begins to turn even through the moon is not full. Damon tries to hold him back, Elena worried informs Damon that they have to get out of there now. They run until Elena trips and looks up and a werewolf stands right in front of her eyes. Damon distracts the werewolf from Elena and runs, while the werewolf follows him. Alaric tells Elena they should keep running she hesitates saying they can't leave without Damon and that it's her fault that he's there.
Alaric says it's his fault and convinces Elena to keep running. Later, Elena sees Damon get out of the car and asks him if he's okay, he assures her that he is fine. Elena asks if she can have a minute to appreciate that Damon is still alive. Later, Elena walks in to her room Damon gets Elena to confess that she cares about him letting her know he will get Stefan back but he just wants to make sure she remembers how she feels about Damon once that happens.
Elena is irritated by Damon when he says fine. Then says "Start packing. Elena and Damon take a road trip to Chicago to convince Stefan to come home again, when he says to Elena he no longer cares for her or loves her anymore making her become heartbroken.

He finds out that Klaus took her to the local hospital so he can drain her of all of her blood in order to make his Hybrid army. Damon arrives in the hospital's parking lot to rescue Elena. Klaus tries to stop him however Damon is able to scare Klaus off by mentioning he knows that Mikael is looking for him.
Horrified Klaus flees town, taking Elena's blood with him. After dealing with Klaus Damon quickly goes to Elena's hospital room and gently carries her back to the boarding house.
Later on in the night while in the boarding house recovering from being drained of most of her blood Damon gives Elena a glass of bourbon to help her forget everything she experienced. He goes on to say that if she wishes it he can compel her. She however refuses the compulsion and instead wants to remember everything that transpired. In attempt to lift her spirits Damon reveals that he stole back her necklace. Deeply upset, Elena shows no interest in the necklace and devastatingly confesses to Damon that Stefan is truly gone forever.

Despite his reservations Damon nonetheless pledges his loyalty to her and agrees to help.

Later that night after Elena daggers Rebekah Damon appears and congratulates her on a job well done. Elena feels extremely guilty but knew Rebekah had to be sidelined because they couldn't trust her to not go Elijah on them at the crucial moment.
Damon quips impressed "Hey, I'm not judging you, it's very Katherine of you. Elena is very concerned that Stefan was right about someone's humanity getting in the way, and since she felt bad for stabbing someone in the back literallyshe worried she is the weak link if they can't trust Mikael or Stefan; they need a better plan.
Damon says he knows what to do, but Elena has to trust him, which means she can't have any part of his plan when things are set in motion trusting him she agrees. After their ruined plan Damon and Elena are next seen in the living room of the boarding house. Damon is feeling extremely angry that their plan didn't work seeing as they had thought of everything; Mikael turning on them, Klaus having Hybrids they even put Katherine in Elena's place so she wouldn't get hurt.
Elena manages to calm Damon down. She takes his face in between her hands and says soothingly "We'll survive this, we always survive. He says sadly "We're never getting Stefan back you know that don't you?
They flirt for a while but are interrupted by Klaus. Klaus wants Elena and Damon to find Stefan in order to get his coffins back but when they refuse, he gets a hybrid to run over Jeremy who has been off vervain due to Tyler's influence and has been compelled by Klaus. Jeremy needs a normal life so Elena asks Damon to compel him to leave town for a long while and never think twice about it. Elena feels guilty for compelling her brother and Damon calms her down saying that she just saved his life and Jeremy is lucky to have her.

She tells him if he keeps pushing people away, he's going to end up alone.

He then notices this and lies next to her. She asks why he can't express his goodness and humanity, which he replies that when someone has good in them, people expect good, and he doesn't want to live by anyone's standards, he then reaches and laces his fingers through her hand. Overwhelmed and breathless, Elena scurries out of the motel room to the balcony. Damon then follows her outside, and Elena, with her back to him, desperately says "Don't", he then replies "Why not? She then takes a deep breath, and viewers see Elena in those few seconds experiencing an overwhelming inner-turmoil as she battles between her morals and her desires.
The latter wins out and she then turns around and strides over to Damon and kisses him. They kiss passionately and lustfully, as Damon, showing no self-restraint, then pushes her up against a pillar and continues to kiss her furiously. Their passionate moment is interrupted by Jeremy's arrival, who awkwardly tells them that Rose had found Mary where the woman who sired Rose was staying.
Though Elena is mortified by the arrival of Jeremy, she has a hint of a smug smile, seeming somewhat satisfied yet flustered by what her and Damon had just done. When the trio arrive at Mary's house, Jeremy stays as Damon and Elena go inside. They are then attacked by Kol, and Damon gets becomes livid when Kol hurts Elena. Seeming satisfied he has inflicted as much dismay and damage as possible, Kol leaves and Elena then helps Damon with his injuries. He then proceeds and places his hand on her cheek affectionately, to check that she is alright.
Elena then backs away seeming unsure of herself. Damon asks what they are doing and Elena then says that Stefan thinks that she has feelings for him, Damon asks if she does, and she replies that she doesn't know. Fed up with her ambiguity and dishonesty, Damon then figures out that the point of the entire journey to Denver was for him to answer her doubts by doing something reckless. She then replies, clearly upset, that he constantly sabotages himself every time when they hit a bump in the road.
Damon, then replies that he isn't going to help her anymore with her feelings, and that she now has to sort it out herself. Later, as they are driving home, Jeremy is sitting in the back sensing tension in the atmosphere. Rose appears and makes it clear that she doesn't want her presence known to Damon and Elena.
She then says she knows Jeremy wants to protect his sister from Damon, fearing she'll get hurt, but says that because he's so young, he doesn't see what she sees. She remarks, that not only does Elena help bring out Damon's humanity, and make him a better man, but Damon also changes her as well; he challenges her, surprises her, makes her question her life and her beliefs.
Their relationship is truly dynamic. She then goes on to say that Stefan is different and his relationship with Elena is pure love, and that he will always be good for her, but Damon could be the best thing for her, but he could also be the worst. This leaves Jeremy quietly stunned. Damon asks if it was just between him and Stefan, who would get the goodbye. Elena tells him: "I love him, Damon.
He came into my life at a time when I needed someone and I fell for him instantly. No matter what I feel for you, I never unfell for him.
Heartbroken, Damon says that he gets it that its always going to be Stefan. However Elena says she can't think about always, all she can think about is right now. Elena says things may be different if she had met him before Stefan. Elena assures him that she will see him soon and they say their goodbyes. Damon then remembers how he had, in fact, met Elena before Stefan. Damon saw her there on a road and mistook her for Katherine.
He told her about what she really wanted: a love that consumes her, passion and adventure, and even a little danger, before compelling her to forget meeting him.
I'm not sorry that I met you. I'm not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, that in death you're the one that made me feel most alive. You've been a terrible person, you've made all the wrong choices, and of all the choices that I've made this will prove to be the worst one. But I am not sorry that I'm in love with you. I love you, Damon. I love you. At the start of Season FourDamon is with Elena and Stefan in Elena's room, explaining to her that she died with vampire blood Damon's blood in her system and that she is now a vampire.
He talks to them harshly and tells Elena to feed or die. Later on, she sees Damon in her room, but realizes she's remembering the scene from Rosewhere Damon tells her he loves her and he doesn't deserve her then compelled her to forget. She then seems to be shocked by this. She tells him she remembers everything, including the fact that she met him first. She eludes to the fact that it wouldn't change anything, but she has to take it a bit further.
She asks him what he would have done if he was in Stefan's position and he tells the truth only Damon would tell: he'd let Matt die to save her because he's selfish.
He's so selfish, that he'd take someone else's life to give Elena the one she wanted: a human life. And that single factor changes everything.
Damon has always been selfish and destructive, but one great reason Elena's answer had to be Stefan hearkened back to the time when Damon just couldn't understand why she'd choose death over vampirism. He tells her "I would have saved you in a heartbeat; no question. You would have gotten to grow up and had the life that you wanted, the life that you deserved. In MemorialDamon tells Elena that she's a vampire now so be a vampire. In the Grill, she asks for him for help because she can't keep the animal blood down.
He takes her to the bathroom and offers her his blood and she ultimately agrees to feed on his blood but he also tells her not to tell Stefan because it's "personal". On the way to the church, Damon gets a call from Elena telling him to hurry as she needs help because she needs a change of clothes and that someone's outside the bathroom while she's throwing up his blood.
He gets there in time before Connor attacks. He brings her the blood bags that she asked him to bring but as she starts throwing it up, he comforts her. As they are having a very close moment, they are interrupted by the church bells and Elena tells him she has to get in the church.
But Elena and Damon are still closer than ever, and the sexual tension between them has even increased as Elena's emotions were heightened. In The RagerElena is in Damon's room "supposedly" looking for bourbon but he knows that she is lying as she wants the white oak stake. He starts undressing in front of her and then asking her if she'd like to stay for the show and she walks out.
Later, Elena has hallucinations of Damon, he'd told her the reason she was seeing him was because she knew she was more like him than Stefan now, that was Elena admitting it to herself. If she has to feed from the vein to survive, she needs Damon to teach her how. Near the end of the episode, Elena fed on Matt again and would've killed him this time had Damon not shown up to stop her. He compelled Matt to forget about Elena going overboard and told Elena he was going to teach her the right way to be a vampire.
Then he comforts her. Bonnie is going to meet with the professor who took over Grams' classes, while Damon teaches Elena to hunt. Damon picks out a blonde girl for her, and Elena catches up with her after class. She compels the girl, but as she is about to bite into her wrist, Elena sees a photo on the girl's phone of her and her baby sister.
She can't do it. Luckily there is a frat party that night, so finding someone to feed off of shouldn't be hard. At the partyElena immediately finds the boy she wants to eat. She lures him away easily and drinks deeply. Damon supervises, and begins to worry that she is drinking too much. She stops herself, and proudly hugs Damon.
But she wants more. Back on the dance floor, the two split up and drink from anyone unlucky enough to dance with them. Elena and Damon then come together, both with bloody mouths, and dance together seductively, on a blood high. Elena catches sight of Bonnie and immediately feels guilty for enjoying herself.
As Elena says, "I should be here with Stefan. Bonnie accuses him of wanting Elena to go over the edge. He argues that she needs to learn to revel in being a vampire. Not hating herself and enjoying it will be the only way she, like him, can make feeding fun and not go nuts and kill hundreds of people. Damon walks away hurt and Elena begins to cry as she realizes what she has done to him.
When will elena and damon start dating
He accompanies her home and she apologizes for letting things get out of hand at the party then accidentally hurts his feelings by saying she hates thinking that he's right about what a vampire is supposed to be. We found out Elena hadn't told Stefan about dirty dancing with Damon after she got high on blood at the Murder House Party. Damon knows she's in a shame spiral filled with newbie vampire remorse, but Elena still wouldn't admit it to anyone but her diary.
When Stefan wouldn't answer a call from Elena's cell, they realized something must be wrong. Damon later found Alaric's map of the tunnels that conveniently provide an entrance to the Grill. Since Connor doesn't know she's a vampire yet, Elena wanted to offer to trade herself for the hostages. Damon rightfully thought that was a stupid idea because she's not ready to go up against a professional killer.
A mock fight ensued that ended with Elena straddling Damon on the bed. She said Jeremy was the only thing holding her together, and he promised they'd get him out. After Stefan had to vervain Damon, he woke up and she wanted him to go to the Grill, but Stefan had taken his day ring, so he couldn't. Elena decided she was going, and Damon told her to use the fact that Connor doesn't know she's a vampire to get as close as she could before making her move. When Elena was digging a grave to bury Connor in the woods, she sobbed when Stefan and Damon showed up.
But she's angry at Stefan for lying to her. She calls Damon, not Stefan, for help, because she doesn't trust Stefan anymore but still trusts Damon. Still bloody from the night before, she paces and waits for Jeremy to wake from the dead.
Damon replies, "How about thanks for not ditching the family ring even after it drove Ric crazy. She refuses, saying, "He's been lying to me and hiding things from me. He compelled Jeremy to forget God knows what. Damon admits calling him. Meanwhile, Damon cleans the kitchen and Elena tries to shower off the memory of stabbing Jeremy. But she hallucinates that the water turns to blood.
After getting dressed and going downstairs, she hallucinates Connor again and begins to dash for the door causing Damon to go after her. When she runs out the door Klaus grabs her and speeds off. Elena breaks out of the room Klaus imprisoned her in and Stefan sends Damon to find her.
He finds her on Wickery bridge, and tries to talk sense into her, but she doesn't listen still heeding the ghostly presences, until Jeremy kills a vampire and breaks the curse.
After he does the deed, Jeremy stands there and watches as the hunter's mark inch up his arm. Just as it does, the sun rises over the horizon and Elena's skin starts to sizzle. When it seems like she might get the death she no longer wants, Damon, not thinking twice, grabs her and dives into the water, saving her from the sun. The next day, Elena wakes up in her bed noticeably lighter and better.
Damon has been waiting in her room looking after her. Elena tells Damon that the last 24 hours were like a really bad dream. She thanks him for saving her. Damon sits on Elena's bed and they take each other's hands, sharing a moment. But, his nobler sentiments get the better of him and Damon explains Stefan's actions over the last few days to her and that he was lying in order to help Klaus find the alleged cure for Elena. Later that day, Stefan comes to the house have a talk with Elena.
She asks him why he sent Damon, to find her and save her instead of him, her boyfriend. He explains to her that since she turned Elena trusts Damon but not Stefan. Stefan understood why Elena was driven to Damon when Stefan was a Ripper, but now he doesn't.
Elena explains to Stefan that since she turned, Damon and her have something more. Her feelings for Damon have amplified. Stefan listens, and he does not seem surprised. But now, I can't do this, Elena. Not anymore. Viewers see Elena's self-consciousness as she hastily tries to fix her dress and hair when Damon walks in the room; similar to an awkward teenager. At first Elena and Caroline were dead set on the blue dress, being the safer choice over the red, but when Damon states that the red one would look better, and asks for Elena's agreement, she reconsiders by saying "the red is pretty.
When Damon leaves, Elena runs after him saying they need to talk. Damon says he knows about the break-up and isn't sorry about it. Elena asks him if he knows the reason as to why they broke up. Damon doesn't and states: "I'm sure it had something to do with you acting weird".
Elena gives him a meaningful look and tells him the reason is, "You. They share a long moment, looking at each other, but Professor Shane interrupts. The following pageant is full of shared looks and meaningful glances rife with sexual tension. After the pageant, Elena, having to get away from Jeremy as he's having nightmares about killing his sister, moves into the Salvatore house.
Stefan, decides he can't be there and heads to Caroline's, leaving Elena and Damon alone. Elena reflects, over a glass of whiskey, about how she probably sucks at being a vampire, and how everyone wants to fix her and change her back into who she used to be. But, Damon says that he's never seen her more alive. Elena smiles at this. She shyly admits that she had wanted to share a dance with him today.
He twinkles at her and extends his hand as an invitation and she accepts, dancing with him in front of the fireplace. It gets progressively more intimate as Damon twirls Elena away and then back towards himself and their lips meet. From soft and slow their kisses get more and more passionate.
Damon lets Elena take the lead. She knocks a lamp over as she pushes him against a wall, rips his shirt open and kisses him, running her hands over his chest as Damon looks equal parts surprised and awed. Damon reverses their positions and presses himself into her, her right leg wrapped around him, kissing each other wildly.
The scene cuts to Caroline and Stefan saying that Elena's feelings for Damon might mean that she is sired to Damon. When the scene cuts back to Elena, in nothing but her lingerie, is straddling and kissing a naked Damon in his bed. The scene intercuts with Damon and Elena making passionate but tender love, alternately kissing each others chests and mouths.
They switch positions and Elena looks happy, laughing with Damon, while he seems awed beyond belief. They move in unison, looking into each others eyes and the episode ends with them cradling each others faces in a loving kiss. Damon sends Elena off to school with a request that they wait just one day before they blab about their new relationship to Stefan.
When Elena heads off to school, Stefan shows up to talk to Damon. Stefan feels a pressing need to tell Damon about the sire bond, and to his credit he doesn't gloat about it, but you know he's feeling pretty relieved on the inside.
Damon isn't buying, however. He challenges Damon to test Elena by giving her a blood bag again. Damon reluctantly agrees to the deal, though he tells his brother that, when her body rejects the blood, "Your apology better be epic. He gives her a blood bag and "I can't believe this, Damon! I don't have to hurt people anymore! She hugs and kisses him before going to class. When going to New Orleans with Stefan, Damon learns of the sire bond.
The link between vampires seems to be formed out of love. When a human loves a vampire, and is turned by that vampire's blood, they experience the sire bond, and do their best to please their sire. Whereas Elena learns from TylerThe sire bond does not influence feelings, only actions.
Damon finds out the way to break the sire bond is for the sire to tell the one with the sire bond to forget about them and move on with their life. Damon, like the secretly good bad guy he is, goes home to dump Elena. But Elena already knows about his motives, thanks to Caroline spilling the beans about the siring thing.
It is real, I know what it is. Please don't do this to me. But I have to do the right thing by you. She takes his hand and places it on her heart. He doesn't answer, but it certainly doesn't seem to be wrong. Then she places her hand on his cheek and repeats the question.
The episode ends with Damon confused but he didn't break up with her. This scene is similar to a moment they had in Smells Like Teen Spirit. They woke up, fully clothed, in the same bed.
He was already feeling guilty. He knows what he should have done. Instead, he got up to change his shirt. Elena insisted this feels real to her and essentially dared him to send her away. Damon said what he really wanted to do was throw her back in his bed and never let her leave. She told him to do it.
Sadly, Elena's phone rang. Bonnie wanted Elena to meet her at the Gilbert family lake house, where she's trying to teach Jeremy not to kill Elena. Elena asked Damon if he wanted to come. He said they shouldn't be there. So was Professor Shadypants, as Damon calls Shane. The lake house is now in Jeremy's name, so he had to invite Elena in.
He did-so he could try to stake her. After trying to deprogram her brother, Elena told Damon how strange it was that the last time she'd been there, she was so in love with Stefan, and now that's barely a memory. Was that the sire bond's work, or her being so happy with Damon that she's forgetting about Stefan? That conversation gave Damon an idea: Professor Shane should have used someone other than the person Jeremy wants to kill to attach Jeremy's "detour feelings" to.
I feel that way about you," Jeremy said to Bonnie. The sweet, awkward smiles Jeremy and Bonnie shared. Outside, Shane and Elena talked about her relationship with Damon. He said he'd once loved someone too much, too-his wife and son had died and he'd been trying to figure out a way not to miss them. Damon interrupted them to threaten Shane's life againbut Shane saved himself by saying he could lead them to the cure because he's already been there.
Shane had to do some quick thinking of his own: Damon told Elena his theory about Shane having killed the pastor and 11 others in that gas explosion. Shane said the pastor had lost his wife to cancer and sought him out for supernatural assistance. But the pastor was too far gone. Elena said she trusts Shane. That discussion got interrupted by Jeremy and Bonnie, who were ready to prove Jeremy could play nicely now.
Choose the right path," Shane said, as Jeremy walked toward Elena with a wooden stake in his hand. Damon stepped in between them, and Jeremy looked at a smiling Bonnie and handed the wood to Damon.
Then he reached Elena and hugged her. As Damon watched Elena and Jeremy decide which Christmas ornaments to bring back to their house, Damon sat outside on the deck and watched her.
Elena took out plastic mistletoe and wanted a kiss, but Damon wouldn't do it. He said it was good to see her normal like that with her brother. He wants that for her. The truth is, of course, that Damon wants that with his brother, too. He misses celebrating Christmas with Stefan, which used to be their favorite holiday when they were human.
This is what I want. This is what will make me happy," he said. Later, we saw Jeremy thank Bonnie and hug her goodbye. Bonnie was going to drive Elena home. Elena told Damon she was prepared to fight him on this, but suddenly, every part of her body was telling her she needs to get in the car and leave him.
She kissed him goodbye. Simple and gentle, they clearly felt the kiss, but she was very confused about the intense push to leave him still. Damon was surprised by the kiss, but still saddened that he had to send her away. She asks them some questions about the cure and Stefan reveals that Elena slept with Damon and that she is sired to him. Rebekah then turns to Elena and compels her to tell them the truth about Damon.
Elena says that being with Damon is unpredictable, and that it makes her feel happy and free. Later that night she calls Damon and they talk about Jeremy. As Damon starts to hang up, Elena tells him that she realized something about them today.
She goes on to tell him that she is in love with him. After that, Damon asks her to get in her car right now and come to him. They hang up and Damon looks up at the sky, amazed that he is finally feeling reciprocated love for the first time in his life.
She arrived just in time to save Matt from another vampire, and inside they went when the line of vampires approaching. Elena was naturally upset with Damon, but she agreed to let him stay with Jeremy and go hunting while she took Matt home. After a while, Elena heard from Jeremy that Kol had Damon. She went to see Klaus to beg him to call off Kol.
She convinced him that they were all on the same team to a point. But the problem was that Damon was compelled by Kol to kill Jeremy. Later, Damon went to see Elena and asked where Jeremy was. At the Grill, she said, checking on Matt. Damon said he should go apologize to Jeremy for being tough on him.
At the Grill, Jeremy senses something was up with Damon when they came eye-to-eye. He started after Jeremy, and Elena called Damon's name and he stopped - for a second.
He told Elena that Kol must have compelled him because if he finds Jeremy, he'll kill him. Elena still needed to save Jeremy, so she called Stefan. Rebekah answered his phone, and Elena knew he'd hear her even if he wouldn't talk to her. She told him the situation and said if he cares about the cure or Jeremy, he'd come help. He didn't answer so she hung up on him. Elena caught up to Damon and tried to tell him that he can resist the compulsion because she loves him, and he loves her, and he'll do anything for her.
When he found Jeremy, Damon again did the most decent thing he could. Jeremy fired a shot, and Stefan pushed Damon out of the way. And he snapped his neck. Then, he looked at Elena. Damon was taken back to Salvatore Mansion and drained of most of his blood to weaken him. He couldn't even get off his back. He wanted to see Elena, but Stefan said they can't let him do that because with the sire bond, he'd be able to get Elena to let him out.
Stefan's plan: Damon stays in there until they find the cure and the sire bond and compulsion are broken. Then Elena and Damon can do whatever they want. Upstairs, Stefan ran into Elena and told her she couldn't see Damon because she'd let him out. At the end of the next episode, A View to a KillDamon was reunited with Elena now that he's no longer compelled to kill Jeremy, and Stefan arrived home with Silas' headstone.
Elena assumed Rebekah was daggered so they just needed to get Professor Shane and they'd be set - but Stefan said he didn't dagger Rebekah because she's on their side.
How could he trust her? Damon was more than happy to tell Elena that Stefan had slept with Rebekah. Elena had nothing to say until the brothers started bickering, and then she told them to stop. You've managed to use that sire bond pretty well so far, haven't you? Damon punched Stefan. Arriving at the islandDamon declined to tell Elena if he'd take the cure when it's found.
Later, Shane made a comment about Damon having the most to lose when they find the cure, Elena had to assure him that her love for him won't change. Then she kisses him and he hugs her. She clearly wants him to take the cure. Shane tried to tell Damon he should leave the island rather than watch Elena find the cure and choose Stefan.
He assumed Damon wouldn't kill him because then Bonnie would die when she did the spell to access the cure. But Damon doesn't care about Bonnie, he told Shane. And right before Damon snapped his neck, Elena arrived to stop him. She freed Shane and told him to stop messing with her friends. Damon's anxieties about Elena were coming to the forefront.
He was terrified that her love for him might be entirely because of the sire bond. If that's the case, then as soon as she gets cured, she won't love him anymore. Rather than face that possibility, he protected his emotions by pushing her away. He rejected Elena and the possibility of taking the cure himself - though that latter may be genuine, as he's been a vampire for a long time and had a lot of fun with it.
In Down the Rabbit HoleDamon plans on getting the cure for the girl he loves. Stefan and Elena found Damon and Rebekah while and Vaughn fled through the passage. Stefan sent Elena on, and he stayed behind to try to help Damon. When he found her, he and Bonnie took a flight back to Mystic Falls.
