Who Are Damon and Jo?
No, I told you that was the last time, Damon. An eternity of torment, agony, grief, and you'll feel it all. Stop it, Damon, stop it, stop it, you're getting in my head Don't do this, please You're gonna feel it forever I hate everything about being a vampire. At least, you know, I did. Then one day I discovered the good part. You know, the promise that "love could be eternal. Which means that, for the rest of eternity, I'm going to have a hole in my heart where he's supposed to be.
I know how death works, Ric.
Trust me, I've done it. There's no such thing as "moving on. So if I'm ever going to be able to fall in love again, and make eternity bearable, I need you to do something. You were created with the original vampire spell, which means that you can compel other vampires. And since I can't take away my vampirism I want you to take away Damon.
I want you to compel me to forget that I ever loved him. Everyday I tell you I hate that And everyday, I do it anyway. You gonna erase Bonnie from your head, too? Missing Bonnie makes me sad, Jer. Missing Damon makes me dangerous. We're going to be searching through memories that are deeply embedded, and each significant memory that we hit which is connected to Damon I will help you modify.
And this should eventually lead us to the signature memory which, once erased, will create a positive domino effect through all your other memories. Can't you just compel me to forget everything at once? And then we can go get a beer? I am supernaturally rewiring three years of your memories. If it were that easy, I wouldn't be so terrified. More sad than afraid. Because I don't want to stop loving him. I don't think we should be asking where we are I think we should be asking when we are.
Alright, talk me through it. Before the Other Side collapsed, my grams said that she'd made a sacrifice so that I could find peace The part where you actually have a theory.
Well, this clearly isn't peace, otherwise I wouldn't be stuck here with you. What if we find something out? Yeah, what if Damon returns home and everything returns back to normal, and you're just sitting there all confused and weird? Then Alaric will bring back my memories.
You have a lovely clavicle. Forgive me, I always notice a woman's neck. I'm a neck person! So is Stefan, right Stefan? Ah, well, that's silly. You can't just stop being a neck person!
Matt Damon has backed himself into a corner with hypocritical gay comments | Film | The Guardian
Is Enzo your boyfriend? Ugh, oh god, no. Would you date that? Would a little support kill you? You know, I am acutely aware that we are in some other-worldly time dimension, however - did you ever think, for one second, that maybe it's you being negative reacting to my natural self negative-ly?
You've got to be kidding me. Bonnie, look at the date on that paper. It says May 10th, It's the same day as yesterday. We're living this same day Well, that proves it. My own person, custom-built hell. And you're in it with me.
I don't know, Ric! Well think about it, Elena! Think about that moment when you knew this person was somebody you had feelings for - that you loved. And you could see those feelings going on forever. Trust me, you never forget. What's a seven-letter word for kill me now? That joke got old six weeks ago. What kind of coward gives up on his own brother? It was my birthday.
Damon and I spent the entire summer looking for Stefan, and I was trying to put on a good face because Caroline was throwing this party for me but I was so sad I was two seconds from deciding I wasn't going to go - I wasn't going to leave the room - until Damon walked in to give me my It was the necklace that Stefan had given me.
I'd lost it, but Damon knew what the necklace meant to me; what it meant about my feelings for Stefan. Even though he loved me, he gave me the one thing that represented hope for me and his brother. I knew how much it hurt him. But he did it. And in that moment, I loved him. I didn't want to, I mean, it terrified me, but It's okay, I'm ready.
I need you to be sure. Welcome to Paradise [6. You ready to start over? Think you can find our ticket out of here, Bon-Bon?
Thanks for the mind games, jackass. You get your daylight ring back when you decide to behave. Now, answer my question: Why did you come back here? Because I missed my brother! I want to have a connection to my humanity, Stefan. I wanted to feel something again.
And when I decided to come back home, it all came rushing back, just like I hoped it would. Let's just hit the road, you and me, huh? I'll let you drive my car, I'll get you off this vegan diet, teach you how to feed again. It'll be great, Stef. What do you say? Stefan Yeah, I can imagine a road trip with you.
I can imagine you feeding on innocent people and, uh, leaving a trail of bodies behind. I can image you making me drink human blood, and laughing at me while I suffer. Way to be an optimist, Stefan. Just looking at the facts, Damon.
Inyou almost pushed me off the rails again because you were so damn needy. And now, I'm finally happy. I have a new life, I'm doing well, and, uh, you just can't handle that, can you, Damon? I'm not trying to screw up your dumb new life.
You don't have to try, Damon. All you have to do is exist. Because no matter what I do or where I go, you will be with me forever, trying to destroy every single thing that I've built. I don't know why I thought this time would be any different. I wanted it to be different. You just keep failing. I'm never gonna be rid of you, am I?
InI gave you your freedom, and in I almost killed your best friend because it should have been you there to help me, Stefan. You owe me, and it'll take you an eternity to pay me back. An eternity of misery, brother.
Damon and jo are we dating something
Just like I promised. You had Alaric compel you to forget every good thing that Damon ever did. You made him a monster in your own mind because you couldn't handle the grief of losing him.
I don't believe anything that you're saying. Why would I do that? Because you were in love with him, and he was in love with you. And when Damon died, a part of you died, too.

College brings a lot of ups and downs to the on screen romance.

Both Elena and Damon, with the help of Sheriff Forbes, finds the safe where Stefan was drowning the whole summer, but only to find a dead body. Damon finally finds Stefan inside a hut where he is tied up in the chair and Qetsiyah makes a link of Stefan with Silas which fries Stefan's brain.
Qetsiyah reveals to Damon that his relationship with Elena is doomed. Damon and Elena take Stefan where both of them finds out that he has memory loss and can't remember anything. Damon, to make Stefan remember about his past life, gives him his journals and spends quality time with him.
At Bonnie's funeral, Damon consoles Elena. Damon wants to help Silas so that Silas can do a spell to swap his life with Bonnie as Silas wants to die. Silas had seen Qetsiyah going to the party therefore both Damon and Silas goes to the ball party at Whitmore College. Silas needs Damon to kill Stefan, so that he can get back his power. Stefan, after waking up, tricked Damon and snapped his neck. At Salvatore's mansion they bring a desiccated Silas, to trade Silas's life with Bonnie he must become mortal witch.

Season 6[ edit ] At the beginning of season 6, Damon is still trapped in the snapshot with Bonnie, forced to relive the same day over and over again. As the season progresses, the duo meet Kai Parker who's provides them with clues on how to get back home.
In a truly selfless act, Bonnie manages to send Damon back while she remains in with Kai. 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.
Troubled with the news that his mother is still alive after believing she'd been dead sinceDamon's informed by Kai that his mother was placed in a Prison World due to being a Ripper and the heinous number of deaths she'd caused.
Unfortunately, Stefan is forced by Caroline to turn off his humanity and Kai, Bonnie, Damon, and Elena have to travel to Lily's Prison World to retrieve her and use her as a means to get Stefan back.
Damon is disturbed to learn when he gets to Lily that she has been trapped with other vampires and they allowed her to drink their portions of blood to stay alive. 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: 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. Relationships[ edit ] 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. 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. Stefan Salvatore[ edit ] 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: 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, however, 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.
She recalls a memory from season 4, where Damon declares that there would be nothing more miserable than becoming human again. Elena is afraid that Damon would regret taking the cure, so she challenges him to think it through carefully. Stefan attempts to convince Damon that becoming human would be a bad decision, but Damon ultimately realizes that one lifetime with Elena is infinitely better than an immortal one without her, and confidently believes her to be his soulmate.
Damon and Elena excitedly anticipate the beginning of their human future together, until Kai puts Elena under a sleeping spell, tied to Bonnie's life. Damon spends the next two seasons devoted to Elena, waiting for her to wake up. He repeatedly states that he is miserable without her, and will spend the next 60 or so years unhappily until Bonnie dies. However, Damon is committed to staying true to Elena, and doing right by her.
Elena is shown to be Damon's moral compass, and his guiding force throughout the two seasons. The phoenix stone's influence remains, and Damon accidentally lights Elena's coffin on fire or so he thinks. Believing that he has unwittingly killed the love of his life, Damon becomes suicidal.
When confronted with the hunter Rayna, Damon commands her to kill him because he is already in hell in a world without Elena. Enzo then reveals to Damon that Elena is still alive, renewing Damon's hope. When Damon realizes that he is a potential danger to his friends and family because he does not believe he is good without Elena, he decides to desiccate himself next to her. He write to Alaric that before Elena, he didn't know what it was like to be happy, fulfilled or complete, and that he doesn't want to continue living without that feeling.
After Stefan wakes Damon from his desiccation, Damon continues to be devoted to his future with Elena.
At the end of season 7, he is lured into a trap by a siren, hearing Elena's voice calling out to him. When the siren takes control of Damon's mind in season 8, Damon spends a significant amount of time sleeping, seeking refuge in dreams of his memories of Elena. When Sybil erases Elena from Damon's consciousness only to insert herself into their memories, Damon fights back, instinctively drawn back to Elena. His love for her prevails, and he breaks the siren's mind control, regaining his memories of Elena.
Julie Plec stated that "I think the only hope that he's holding on to is the idea of the two of them living in Tribeca in their brownstone and raising kids and having a life together as humans when this is all said and done.
They begin their life together, getting married while Elena goes to medical school and becomes a doctor. Eventually they return to Mystic Falls to grow old together, where they died together of old age. We last see them walking hand in hand in the afterlife before reuniting with their respective families. Alaric Saltzman[ edit ] Alaric is a vampire hunter looking to avenge his wife by killing the vampire that killed her.
It is soon revealed that the vampire that Alaric is hunting is actually Damon. Before killing Alaric, he confesses that he didn't kill Isobel but turned her. Alaric is brought back to life by the Gilbert ring.
