For him, she is the best thing that has ever happened to him in his life. Damon lets Elena take the lead. Elena is reunited with Alaric and she wants to go find Damon but he tells he that he will go find Damon and that she needs to hurry to Bonnie. Unable to go on with the memory of Damon, Elena has Alaric erase every good memory she has of him and doesn't remember loving him until she finally learns the truth from Stefan. Ive read that somewhere in season 5, elena and damon started dating but then somehow elena lost "the love of her life" im excited cant wait to see it. 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.

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.

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: 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. At the start of Season Four , Damon 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 Rose , where 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's so selfish, that he'd take someone else's life to give Elena the one she wanted: 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 Memorial , Damon 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 Rager , Elena is in Damon's room "supposedly" looking for bourbon but he knows that she is lying as she wants the white oak stake.

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. Damon picks out a blonde girl for her, and Elena catches up with her after class. At the party , Elena 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. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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: 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 Tyler , The 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. He refused to sleep with her. 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 again , but 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. Damon was ready to do the right thing: 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. 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.

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. 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. 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. 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 Hole , Damon 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.

Later when they came back, Elena went upstairs in Jeremy's room and she realized that Jeremy was dead. Damon,who followed her, tried to calm her down but without any success. She pleased him to take Jeremy body downstairs which he did. Elena went in the kitchen and took a bottle of gas and started pouring it around the house.

Stefan, Damon, and Caroline were watching in surprise. Elena went near the fireplace and took a match. She lighted the match and was ready to drop it on the floor and set the house on fire. She started talking about her mother, her dad, Jenna, Alaric, Jeremy, and John who used to live there and about the house which is full of memories of people she loved and died.

Suddenly the match burned her finger and she let it fall but luckily Damon caught it in time. Elena broke down on the floor and started crying and shouting about the pain that she couldn't handle anymore. Stefan told Damon to help her. He sat on the floor next to her and hugged her. He told her that he can help her. He told her to turn it off that this was what he wanted for her to do. Elena stared at Damon for a little while with tears on her eyes and then she turned off her humanity.

Next on the porch, Damon and Stefan were talking about Elena. Damon told Stefan, "Humanity means nothing when you don't have anyone to care about". Stefan replied, "She had you". Later they went back in. Elena took another match, lighted it and let it fall on the ground.

The house started burning and they left home with Jeremy and Elena's memories, including Elena's past burning into flames. In Bring It On , Elena was laying in the middle of the street similar to what Damon does , waited for a car to stop, and fed on the vervain-free driver until Damon showed up and told her to show some restraint. Caroline thought school would be a good idea, and Damon told Elena it would make him happy and not to feed on anyone , but Elena rejoined the cheerleading squad and fed on the vervain-free competition, taking the ribbon she wanted.

And then things just kept getting worse. Caroline tried to talk to her, but it became clear the sire bond wasn't working; without her humanity, she had no feelings. Later, Elena and Caroline were fighting, Elena had almost killed her and Damon had to intervene when Elena was a little too close to maybe staking Caroline for comfort. Elena told Damon that she had enough of people telling her to feel when she felt amazing.

She asked him if he wants for her to be back like the scared little girl who couldn't admit what she wants,meaning that she would've chose him instead of Stefan if she wasn't scared. She reminded him that he had wanted to be with her and wanted him to be honest that he liked her like this.

Damon had sneaked Elena out of the house and decided it was time for another road trip. We see them in Damon's car, heading to New York , the city that never sleeps. From Because the Night , onward, the relationship between Damon and Elena seems to be broken beyond repair due to a conflict of interest: Damon wants Elena to take the cure at all cost, whereas Elena wants to find the cure first so she can keep the Salvatore brothers from making her take it.

Elena will stop at nothing to reach her goal, and seems to no longer care for those that she once considered her friends. She only teams up with Rebekah because they have the same goal and because Rebekah will protect her from Damon and Stefan. While Damon and Elena are in New York, it is also shown that Elena now sees Damon as a mere tool that will help her reach her goal of finding the cure, as she uses him to get away from New York so she can go after Katherine, who has the cure.

Later, Elena tells Stefan and Damon that she no longer wants the cure and has no intention to take it. She then asks Stefan and Damon to back down and stop trying to make her take the cure, to which they refuse. She then kills a waitress and tells them that until they stop trying to forcibly cure her, she will kill many more people.

In Pictures of You , Stefan tells Damon once Elena gets her humanity back, Damon will help her deal with all the emotions she's repressed since Jeremy's death and Stefan will leave town. At night, Damon and Stefan picked Elena up in a limo and Damon gave her a corsage. Both Damon and Stefan walked her down a red carpet walkway which was lined with large screens flashing photos of Elena and Matt, and Elena and Jeremy that were meant to tug at Elena's heartstrings.

It started to work, so Elena moved inside. Damon stopped her from drinking from a flask and he started working the "I'm your boyfriend, and we're at prom, how romantic! She wasn't biting and she told him he's nothing to her and that she'd only told him she loved him when she still had her humanity because of the sire bond, leaving him heartbroken.

Then Elena danced with Stefan in front of Damon which made him jealous. Later Elena tried to kill Bonnie and Bonnie used her magic which made Elena throw up Bonnie's blood and her bones being broken. Stefan and Damon stopped Bonnie from killing Elena.

He hugged her while she was begging Bonnie to stop. Bonnie realizing what she had done left. Elena gave Damon a meaningful look. Damon helped Elena get up and as Damon held her Stefan vervained her. Damon told Stefan that he saw the fear, which in fact is an emotion, in Elena's eyes. Stefan replied that they would make her life a living hell as it is the only way for her to feel again.

In The Originals , Damon and Stefan discusses about how Elena seems to be more resistant to blood-starving than they expected. Damon asks how long is it going to take before Elena starts becoming emotional, to which Stefan replies that it is probably going to take a lot more time. Later, towards the end of the episode, Damon goes to see Elena in the cell of the Salvatore Boarding House where the two brothers hold her captive, and tell her that she "looks terrible", implying that she is starving for blood, to which she replies that Damon doesn't care about her.

Damon then goes on to tell her that he does care, but that she doesn't, which is the problem, and that it needs to change. He then gives her a blood bag. However, Elena quickly spits out the blood as she realizes that it has been mixed with vervain. Damon then asks her how she feels about what he just did to her giving her the blood bag with vervain , and implies that he and Stefan are going to torture her until she turns her humanity back on.

Elena tries to escape with super speed, but is blocked by Stefan. She tells them that if they want to "play games" to determine who has the most willpower between them, they shall see who is going to "break first".

Stefan then closes the cell's door. In She's Come Undone , Damon was inside Elena's head, making her think she was walking on school grounds talking to Caroline, who'd just been named valedictorian. He wanted to show her all she's missing out on. The Salvatores had her locked in their version of solitary confinement, a tall safe.

Elena was brought upstairs and tied to a chair without her day-ring. Stefan opened the curtains and she suffered the punishment. Damon was using a fire extinguisher to put out the flames on her arm. She told him she was going to kill him. Stefan didn't hesitate to pull back the curtains far enough to burn her face the next time. Elena was burning again, and this time, she launched a verbal assault on Damon.

She told him he was right -- she never loved him, it was just the sire bond. Elena broke free from her singed rope constraints, pulled back the curtains herself, and set herself on fire. The brothers stopped her. They love her too much to ever really hurt her, Elena said, so what does she have to be afraid of? Damon couldn't understand why Elena wasn't doing what every other vampire eventually does -- turn on her emotions. If they weren't going to hurt her, they had to bring in someone who would.

Stefan thought of Katherine. Stefan burst in to say Elena was gone. Katherine hadn't locked her in. She wanted to see her escape and raise hell, which would be more entertaining. Damon decided to take Matt with him as bait. In the woods, Elena kicked Matt because she wanted him to wake up so she could feed again. The Salvatores finally stepped in, and then Damon had enough: He told Elena that he was going to kill Matt.

She called his bluff, and he snapped Matt's neck. Elena went to Matt, believing he was gone, and when Damon showed her that he was wearing the resurrection ring, he said she was experiencing joy that her friend wasn't dead.

The memories came back to Elena: What she'd done to Matt, Caroline, Bonnie, and that waitress that she actually killed. She started crying, broke the glass in the truck's window, and just generally freaked out. Damon tried to calm her down but she wouldn't listen.

Stefan told her he knew this stage: She had to focus on one thing inside of her that makes her strong and latch on to it. She had to find the thing inside of her that makes her want to live. Back at Salvatore Mansion. She got it now: Things have happened that can't be undone, she said. And she needs to do something about that. Turns out, the reason she had to live was to kill Katherine, who she blames for everything -- ruining their lives, bringing Klaus to Mystic Falls, killing Jeremy.

In The Walking Dead , Damon is avoiding Elena and Stefan's attempts to use himself as a guiding example fall short because he had the same killing compulsion with Klaus as Elena has with Katherine. When discovering that Bonnie is going to drop the veil, Stefan teams up with Caroline to search inside for Bonnie, while Damon and Elena look outside. Mostly, she just wants to know where Katherine is. He thinks she needs to let it go. Damon and the real Alaric, load stone Silas into the trunk of a car, they plan to drop him into the ocean.

But first, Alaric gives Damon something he found in Silas' pocket: When Elena wouldn't take it -- because then the Hunters would kill people -- Damon knew the sire bond hadn't resurfaced when she got her humanity back. Damon thought Jeremy would help him convince her, but Jeremy said it was her choice. He accepts Elena as a vampire now. Elena then noticed Damon wincing in pain and told him to take off his shirt. She saw the wound from Vaughn's wooden-bullet gun hadn't healed.

He told her that bullet was laced with werewolf venom -- and the hunters were dicks. With Klaus in New Orleans, the only hope was for Damon to take the cure and become human so he didn't die. That's what Elena wanted. But Damon said he was so motivated by Elena's save-the-world speech, he wouldn't do it.

He gave the cure to Vaughn and told him they were off to dig up Silas. Damon didn't want to become human, so if he was going to die, he'd at least distract Vaughn. Elena was freaking out about Damon leaving until Stefan told her it was a stall tactic. He said the bullet was only laced with werewolf venom, so Damon had time. Jeremy made Elena go to graduation but she was still shown to be worried about Damon. Later, Vaughn was about to kill Damon until Alaric stepped in and saved him.

Alaric phoned the others ask Stefan whether he should watch Damon die or force-feed him the cure. Damon was standing in front of the fireplace and said he wanted to apologize, but then realized he wasn't sorry. Yes, he'd rather die than be human, both because he didn't want to age and because he didn't want to age while she remained the same. Jeremy is living with them which leads to awkward moments when he walks in on his sister straddling Damon on the couch.

After the end of summer, Elena is finally ready to go to college and a night before leaving she is seen taking a bubble bath in Damon's tub as he walks around in a towel.

She mentions she feels something bad is about to happen and Damon replies its because she is leaving for Whitmore College. Elena asks him to support her decision but he says that he would rather convince her to stay and kisses her. Damon and Elena's sweet goodbye. Later, Elena calls Damon to tell him about an unexpected human roommate who has just arrived. Damon and Elena checked in with each other later over the phone, and he tells her nothing about Jeremy's car accident, expulsion, Silas, Katherine, or anything else that had happened that day.

When Jeremy comments about him lying, Damon replies that he doesn't want Elena to come running back to Mystic Falls and that he will figure all this house because he wants her to be happy and enjoy her college life.

Before Damon could explain it wasn't Stefan, Silas told Elena to turn off her phone and she did. Later, Damon showed her that he'd snagged Stefan's daylight ring back from Silas the day before.

And then Damon said he's secure enough in their relationship that her having psychic dreams about her ex-boyfriend doesn't bother him, but it still sucks. They kissed, and Elena told Damon they were going to save Stefan and she would still love him. Then they passionately kissed. This shows how much they really are in love when they're embracing while having a disagreement. In Original Sin , Elena wakes up in bed next to Damon telling him that she had a bad dream about Stefan. Damon is annoyed but eventually asks her to tell him about it.

Elena tells him how she saw Stefan burning in sun in front of a bar but doesn't know where, then Katherine makes her presence telling the name of the bar and saying she had the exact same dream. Then Damon and Elena along with Katherine go to find the bar. After reaching the bar Damon compels the owner to tell what happened with Stefan, she tells them the whole story and tells how Qetsiyah threw him into a truck. She mentions how she knows who's truck it was and directs them to the hut.

Before parting ways Damon tells Elena not to risk her life in saving Katherine as she is not even worth a hair on Elena's head and then they kiss. After finally finding Stefan they take him back to the boarding house where Elena praises Damon for looking out for Stefan but Damon doesn't respond.

Elena asks what Qetsiyah said to him back at the cabin. Damon tells her about how she explained that the universe is working against them to bring Stefan and Elena together and so they don't stand a chance. Elena responds by saying that Qetsiyah is crazy and she won't let Silas' 2,year-old ex-girlfriend screw things up between them. Damon emotionally tells her how he won't let a stupid idea of destiny stop him from loving Elena or being with her or building a future with her because she is his life.

Elena, touched deeply by his words, leans in to kiss him but they are interrupted by Stefan who wakes up and tell them he has no idea who Elena and Damon are. Jeremy confesses to Damon about Bonnie's death and Damon is shaken by it. Meanwhile Elena admits to Stefan about being with Damon when he tries to kiss her which upsets Stefan and he vanishes.

Elena calls Damon to help him find Stefan while he is trying to tell her about Bonnie's death. They finally find Stefan back at the house but he is still upset with them and leaves the house.

Elena tells Damon that they need Bonnie and Damon finally tells her about Bonnie's death which shocks her. Later, Elena is freaking out as she can't find a dress for Bonnie's funeral and breaks down into tears telling Damon how she can't do this again. Damon hugs her affectionately and tries to calm her down.

At Bonnie's funeral Damon consoles Elena as they both mourn Bonnie's death. Elena has been avoiding him since three days as she is feeling guilty because she was enjoying her life while her best friend was dead. Elena kisses him goodbye and leaves for her class. At the ball,Damon teases her by saying "Lady Anne Boleyn.

Now who in their right mind would cut off a head so gorgeous? My not so loving husband. Later at the ball, they find a desiccated Silas who has turned cold and grey and is unable to move because of Qetsiyah's spell. Damon and Elena find him and take him back to the Salvatore house.

At the house, they are telling each other about their respective missions of the day and how they failed. Then,Katherine arrives at Salvatore house and she is happy seeing that Silas is gone but Damon gives a devious smile and Katherine realizes why he has called her. Damon then feeds Katherine's blood to Silas while Elena watches and they think that she is dead. But soon she wakes up leaving Damon and Elena stunned and confused.

In Handle with Care , Damon and Elena were at Salvatore Mansion snuggling by the fire and debating how good a day it was about to be when Silas made his entrance. Elena wasn't sure they could trust him to trade his life for Bonnie's. He assured her that he was in: He just has to find the anchor, destroy it to destroy the other side, die, and finally be at peace.

He knew roughly where the anchor was. Silas was in such a great mood: When Jeremy appeared with his crossbow, Silas knew how excited Jeremy must be. They were all on the same side for the moment, so Damon told Jeremy to "Put the damn crossbow down, Pocahontas.

Silas then refused to let Elena come along as she looks exactly like his true love, Amara. Elena refused as she wanted to go as well then Silas used his magic on the crossbow to shoot Elena in the leg which upset Damon as he hurried to her side. Elena was concerned about why Stefan would be fraternizing with Tessa.

When she phoned Damon and Silas made sure Damon told her about how he'd maybe kinda sorta snapped Stefan's neck a couple of times, Elena was furious. Tessa informed Damon that she'd purposely lured Elena to the cabin so she could use her as leverage. Tessa wanted Damon to kill Silas before he found the anchor. If he didn't do it before sundown, she'd kill Elena. It might be cathartic, she said, because Elena has the same face as Amara. Elena managed to escape with Stefan's help.

Later, Damon told Elena they had to protect Amara now that she's taken the cure and is human again. In Death and the Maiden , Damon and Elena are finally able to bring Bonnie back to life with the help of Qetsiyah who makes Bonnie the new anchor to the other side. In Dead Man on Campus , Elena invites Damon to her first college party but first he decides to confront Wes about his lastest actions and what he's up to. Later in the night, Elena knew she needed to phone Damon and make sure he wasn't going to murder Wes.

Elena showed up and saw Jesse feeding off of Damon. She finally staked Jesse. Caroline appeared, just in time for Jesse to die.

Damon tried to tell her Elena had no choice. He takes her to the Whitmore House and Wes appears out of nowhere and vervains Elena in front of Aaron. Elena wakes up in a cell next to Damon in the basement of the Whitmore house, and she finally learns about Damon's Augustine days. Turns out, he was in that very same cell for five years in the 50s, getting tortured surgically every day by the Augustine doctors and getting only enough blood to heal back up to do it all over again.

They did it all under the guise of researching how vampires regenerated on a cellular level, but it was just sadistic. They would take out pieces of his organs, cut into him over and over, just to watch him heal. He told Damon the way to survive was to picture his revenge and that will get him through the day. Damon promises Elena that he'll get her out of there after she agonizes over how her father could have been one of those sadistic doctors.

Damon also tells Elena that Enzo's friendship is what kept him alive and holding onto his humanity. But the craziest part is that he also reveals he never told anyone, including Stefan, what happened during his Augustine imprisonment, so Stefan won't know where to look for them if he even notices that they're both missing.

He continues to tell her more about the past. Every year on New Year's Eve, the Augustine docs let the vampires out of their cells, though still in a cage with vervained bars, for a party. Whitmore let the guests drink Damon and Enzo's blood to demonstrate how vamp blood worked. And that's how Enzo comes up with an escape plan: Enzo lost the rock paper scissors game, so Damon got to drink the rations everyday, saving only a few drops for Enzo so he wouldn't desiccate.

Damon finally tells Elena his shameful secret: After massacring the party on New Years Eve and knocking over a candle, he tried to break the cage to free Enzo but the bars were vervained and he couldn't get him out. Damon flipped his humanity switch so he would stop caring about Enzo, and left him to die in the ensuing fire.

Elena, while horrified that Damon left Enzo, forgave him since he left to save himself. It was all about survival, after all. But then then Damon reveals his dark secret. When Aaron comes down to free Elena and Damon, he makes them confess the truth first.

He wants to know if Elena killed his parents, but Damon reveals that it was him. Damon killed Aaron's parents. It was all a part of his revenge plan that Enzo told him to focus on back in the 50s. He decided that he would kill all the members of Augustine and then all the members of the Whitmore family, leaving only one Whitmore alive.

Damon would let that person grow up, start a family, and then kill them all except for one, let them grow up and start a family, and do it over and over again.

For the past 50 years, he's been sticking to his revenge plan and kept it up even as soon as a few months ago, when he killed someone named Sarah Whitmore, Aaron's aunt. He did this at the beginning of his happy, perfect summer with Elena. It was a weekend trip that she didn't know about. Damon's lost count of how many Whitmores he's killed over the years and there isn't anything to excuse him for his shocking, horrifying behavior.

He wasn't killing these people to survive, or to save anyone, or because his humanity was flipped off. Damon's been keeping it up even during his relationship with Elena, and she had no idea what was going on. And in shock from hearing what Damon's been doing to his family for the past 50 years, Aaron shoots Damon in the head, upsetting Elena, leaving her shocked.

When Damon wakes up, he finds Elena's cell empty realizing that Wes has taken her. In Fifty Shades of Grayson , Damon uses the last of his remaining strength to get out of the cell and save Elena from Wes. Damon visits Stefan and tells him they have to go get Elena, but he doesn't know where she is, so they need leverage. They find Aaron and Damon tells Aaron to call his uncle to get Elena back, or Wes gets to try to reattach Aaron's arms. Wes manages to keep Damon busy by sending Enzo, who is revealed to be still alive, after Damon.

However Stefan manages to save Elena with Aaron's help. Later at the Salvatore house, Damon finds Elena reading through her dad's journal. She found a reference to Megan in her dad's journal. He cured her from a congenital heart defect, which is why Megan had a picture of Grayson Gilbert in her phone.

Damon isn't surprised that Elena is able to find the one positive thing out of all the torture. He doesn't understand how Elena can keep looking past all the terrible things that he has done. She says she loves him and accepts him and because she chose him. Damon replies that now he is choosing and he chooses to let her go.

Elena begs him not to run away because she has done horrible things too and that she won't judge him after finding out that he was tortured for 5 years. He shouts at her to stop defending him. Damon confesses that he can't change who he is but he refuses to change Elena and leaves. Elena is devastated and starts crying. In Years of Solitude , Damon and Elena are having a hard time dealing with their breakup. Damon is spending his time drinking while Elena doesn't want to get out of her bed.

Later, they have an awkward moment when Elena returns to the boarding house after learning that Katherine is dying. Stefan encourages Elena to not give up on Damon and convinces Damon to get her back. Stefan tells Damon that she is the best thing that has ever happened to him and Damon doesn't deny it and confesses that he can't leave without her.

Unfortunately for Damon, his dream-come-true is actually a nightmare in disguise — in the form of his supposedly dead ex, Katherine also played by Nina Dobrev , in fact. With his final moments looming, Elena curls up to the dying Damon and kisses him gently. He survives, thanks to an impeccably timed appearance by Katherine, who arrives with a cure to save his life. Season 3 of the series focuses on the undeniable chemistry between Damon and Elena.

Though Stefan is still very much in the picture despite a rough patch with his lady love , Elena finds herself drawn to the elder Salvatore. McQueen , in tow. Her feelings ultimately boil over and she runs out of the motel room with Damon following. The two then share their first epic kiss soon to be many.

Over the course of the series, fans are led to believe that Stefan is the first Salvatore whom Elena meets. Though the new vampire believes her unyielding feelings for Damon are genuine, Stefan and best pal Caroline Candice Accola discover that Elena is actually sired to him.

The fourth season of the series is an emotional roller coaster for Elena. From breaking up with Stefan to being sired to Damon, the brunette vamp eventually reaches a breaking point and shuts off her emotions completely. But by the time the finale rolls around, Elena is herself again — and ready to make a decision about which Salvatore she desires.

Elena is understanding, but Damon simply cannot forgive himself and puts an end to the relationship.
