[Early history/ Season 1] Damon Salvatore was born June 28, 1842. Before Damon was turned into a vampire he was a solider in the American Civil War for the Confederate Army. He along with his brother grew up in the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Though dealing with the death of his mother took a toll on him and his relationship with his father, he continued to have a positive relationship with his younger brother Stefan. That is until he met Katherine, and she also started seeing his brother along with him. This is what first started the animosity between the two brothers. Katherine Pierce was the love of Damon's life and a vampire which he quickly found out. Damon's father Giuseppe never approved of his son spending so much time with Katherine and constantly commented on his poor sense of duty. This did not matter to Damon he was more interested in learning fully what Katherine was and was fully willing to drink her blood eager to learn all he could about what she was and how he would be able to give up his human life to spend eternity with Katherine. Stefan of course knew all this though Damon had begged him to keep it from there father, who at this time was a prominent member of the Town Council and a vampire hunter. Stefan ended up breaking the promise he made to his brother and because of that Katherine was taken away and Damon who tried all he could to save her was chastised by his father for all he had done to try and save her. This was the start of there relationship going for the worst, though Stefan agreed to help him find a way to rescue her. When they finally tried to put there plan in action they were both shot and killed by there father who was so ashamed of both of his sons for falling in love with a vampire, what he didn't know was that they both had Katherine's blood in there systems. Damon was the first of the two to awake after being killed and rushed to the Fell's Church where they were going to burn all the vampires, Damon felt that with out Katherine he had not reason to continue his life and was planning to not complete his transformation into a vampire. That is until Stefan returned to him after murdering there father and feeding on him, he forced Damon to drink blood that would complete his transformation as well. Even after his transformation Damon was upset that Katherine had decided to turn his brother as well, though he did looked to her old friend Emily Bennett for answers, she gave him a daylight ring, telling him she owed Katherine for saving her life. She also let Damon know that she was able to save the vampires in the church, something Damon decided to keep from Stefan until almost one-hundred and fifty years later when he returned to him home town to try and free Katherine from the church. Unfortunately she was not locked in there with the other vampires , but he was able to meet Elena Gilbert who was a defendant of Katherine with whom he has taken much intreats in, most likely due to Stefan's intreats. After finding out Katherine was free all along and had not real feelings for him at all, and really loved only Stefan, Damon took most of his anger out on the town, killing people as he pleased and doing anything to make Stefan's life harder including murdering there only living relative Zach Salvatore. Damon, though he has mellowed out a bit with time. He has also not only joined the new Founder's Council, but leads it, has made more friends the enemies it seems as far as people who are important in the town. He has been able to maintain a positive relationship the mayor Carol Lockwood and the sheriff Liz Forbes.
In The Return
Directly following the events of the season one finale, Damon arrives at the hospital, expressing worry to Sheriff Forbes about her daughter, Caroline. She tells him that the mayor, Richard Lockwood, is dead, but that he couldn’t have been a vampire. He comforts her, but seems incredibly intrigued by the fact that Lockwood was affected by the Gilbert Device. When Elena arrives at the hospital worried about Caroline. He points out that Bonnie doesn’t know how to cure Caroline with a spell, and offers to give Caroline enough blood to make sure she lives. Elena turns it down immediately, but Bonnie agrees. When Bonnie leaves, Damon attempts to bring up the fact that they kissed, but Elena blows him off, saying she has no idea what he’s talking about. He grabs her arm, saying, “If you wanna forget this happened, fine, but I can’t.” Jenna arrives at that moment, telling Elena something that Elena claims was never said. This is when Damon first realizes that Katherine Pierce is in Mystic Falls impersonating Elena. He recruits Elena and heads back to her home, where they find Stefan, who had just got out of a fight with Katherine. The three of them sit down in the dining room and talk about what Katherine wants, where Stefan asks Damon exactly what happened between them. Damon admits he kissed her, thinking she was Elena, and Stefan attempts to attack him. Elena stops him, claiming that she wouldn’t do that. While trying to formulate a plan, Damon leaves, declaring that he’ll just ignore her and see where that gets him. Damon goes to the Lockwood Mansion and breaks up a fight between Carol Lockwood and Elizabeth Forbes, who are discussing the death of the mayor. He questions Sheriff Forbes about Mason Lockwood and finds out that he’s Tyler Lockwood’s uncle, and the brother of the mayor, but he knows nothing about the Town Council. When Bonnie goes to talk to Damon in the dining room, wondering if he’s suspicious about both Tyler and the mayor being affected by the Gilbert Device, he ends up irritating her until she uses magic to hurt his head. He later speaks to Elena out on the Lockwood’s porch, where she asks him how he’s doing. He doesn’t admit that he’s hurt until Elena tells him that she’s surprised he thought she’d kiss him back. He also appears after Katherine stabs Stefan, trying to pick a fight with his little brother, though he doesn’t seem too serious about it. Stefan warns him that Katherine will get between them, but Damon, sarcastically, denies that it’s possible.
That night, Damon encounters Katherine in the Salvatore Boarding House, where the two share a heated kiss. He stops them before they have sex, asking extremely modestly if she’ll just tell him the truth. She tells him that she’s never loved him, which literally rockets him off the deep end. He shows up at Elena’s house drunk and angry, demanding that Elena admit she has feelings for him. He forces her to kiss him, but when she denies him with the same line Katherine used, “It’s always gonna be Stefan,” he seems momentarily emotionally broken. Jeremy interrupts, and Damon pins him to the wall and snaps his neck. While Elena falls to her brother’s lifeless body, Damon steps further into the background, appearing to, in some capacity, realize the magnitude of what he’s done. As The Return draws to an end and Elena declares her hatred for Damon, he’s seen hurling a glass into the fireplace, his face contorted with anger.
In Brave New World, Damon is first seen having tea with Carol Lockwood. She asks Damon to spearhead the Town Council while she’s acting as interim-mayor. He accepts just as Mason and Tyler come back to the house, and listens to their conversation about anger problems. When Stefan comes home later, he seems to have occupied himself with investigating the Lockwoods’ family secret. He later attends the Carnival, where he speaks to Jeremy. When Jeremy threatens to tell everyone about vampires, Damon grows serious and drags him behind the concession stand, where he takes his ring and puts him in a headlock, pointing out how easy it would be to really kill him. He also watches Mason and Tyler arm-wrestling, where he volunteers Stefan to go up against Mason. Stefan admits that he’s supernaturally strong after losing to him, which further interest Damon. He compels a carnival worker to pick a fight with Tyler to make him angry. Later, the newly-transitioned Caroline confronts Damon in the school hallway, telling him that she remembers everything he compelled her to forget. He goes straight to Elena, and, along with Stefan, they meet in Alaric’s classroom. He is convinced that killing Caroline is the only thing they can do, and, locating her by the dead body of her newest victim, he attempts to stake her. He’s stopped by Stefan the first time and Elena the second, who bravely steps between him and Caroline. He’s in charge of disposing of the body, and when he says something particularly crude in the presence of Bonnie, she sets him on fire. Elena manages to stop the witch before Damon is killed. When Damon returns to the boarding house, Jeremy is there, and he’s laced Damon’s alcohol with Vervain. He admits that he was there to kill him, but decided against it because of the blind hatred of his parents.
In Bad Moon Rising, Damon is first seen in the Salvatore Boarding House talking to Alaric, Stefan, and Elena, discussing if it’s possible for Mason Lockwood and Tyler Lockwood to be werewolves. They decide to go to Duke University, where Alaric’s wife, Isobel, still has an office full of research. Stefan doesn’t come, as he’s still watching over Caroline, and when Damon taunts him for this, Elena kisses Stefan to spite him. Throughout the drive, Damon tries to convince Elena that he knew Jeremy would come back to life when he killed him. When they arrive on campus, Isobel’s old research assistant lets them into her office, but attempts to shoot Elena with a crossbow, as she knows who Katherine is. Damon moves in front of her, taking the arrow in the back, and Elena is the one to pull it out. Alaric discovers a book describing ‘The sun and the moon curse.’ She tells them that werewolves are hard-wired to hunt vampires, and that a werewolf bite is fatal to vampires. Disturbed by this, Elena calls Stefan to warn him.
Also, she asks Isobel’s research assistant what she knows about Doppelgängers, which seems to interest Damon. He taunts her again with the information he claims to know. When Elena tells him that friends are supposed to help each other, he follows her to the car and gives her a book, which bears Katherine’s original last name. He admits that he doesn’t want to lose their friendship forever. Near the end of the episode, he walks her to her door, where she asks him if he honestly knew Jeremy was wearing the Gilbert Ring. He genuinely apologizes, but Elena tells him that he’s lost her forever, revealing that she manipulated him to get information about Katherine. Hurt, Damon tells her that she has much more in common with Katherine than her looks.
In Memory Lane, Damon appears in the Mystic Grill to taunt Elena about a party he’ll be attending at the Gilbert House. He wants to find out more about Mason Lockwood, and throughout the evening, he continues to drop innuendos to Tyler’s uncle, like drawing a wolf while playing Pictionary, and trying to get him to serve the pie with a silver utensil. Mason confronts him in the kitchen, hoping to keep the age-old rivalry out of their lives. Damon continues to antagonize him, suspicious about his presence in Mystic Falls. Eventually, he agrees to a truce, but he takes a knife from Jenna’s silver set and follows Mason outside, where he stabs him in the stomach. Mason heals immediately, warning Damon that he’s made an enemy. After Elena and Stefan have their fake fight at the grill, Damon leaves and encounters Katherine outside, who he reacts to coldly.
In Kill or Be Killed, Damon continues to listen in on Stefan and Elena’s fake arguments, revealing that he knows it wasn’t real. He takes a cup of lemonade from a little girl, but is shocked to learn that it’s been spike with Vervain. It was part of a plan executed by Mason Lockwood to show Elizabeth Forbes that Damon was a vampire. Furious, Damon attempts to kill Mason, but he and Stefan are shot with wooden bullets in the forest, falling right into Elizabeth’s trap. She takes them to The Lockwood Cellar, where she demands to know how he can walk in the sun. Damon doesn’t tell her, but says that he thought they were actually friends. She shoots him repeatedly with wooden bullets until, eventually, Caroline manages to save their lives. Damon feeds on one of the dead deputies and tries to convince Stefan to do the same. And then, staggering because of his injuries, he confronts Sheriff Forbes, who asks him to kill her. Damon refuses on the basis that they’re friends, keeping her locked up until the Vervain leaves her system so he can compel her to forget that he, Stefan, and Caroline are vampires. Later, when he encounters Elena in the living room of the Salvatore house, she tells him that sparing Caroline’s mother was more like the Damon that she was friends with.
In Plan B, Damon is visited by Jeremy Gilbert, who tells him that Mason Lockwood is looking for the moon stone. Alaric comes by later, surprised to see Jeremy. He gives Damon the research from Isobel’s office. Damon wants Jeremy to retrieve the moon stone from Tyler, and, upon finding out that Katherine and Mason are together, he speculates that Katherine wants the moon stone. The brothers ask Bonnie to touch Mason Lockwood to find out what he wants with the stone. He also asks what’s happening when she ‘ju-jus’ his brain, suggesting they do it to Mason or Katherine. Though he asks rudely, Bonnie agrees to help them. She uses her magic on Mason, effectively subduing him so that they can capture him. Damon takes him to the Salvatore Mansion and chains him into a chair. While there, Bonnie attempts to get into Mason’s mind, revealing that the moon stone is being kept in a well of some kind. When Mason grabs her, Damon pries his hand away, thanking her as she’s leaving the room.
He cruelly tortures the young man by shoving a red-hot fire-poker into his chest repeatedly. He questions him about Katherine, but gets no response. Jeremy later delivers wolfs bane, which Damon uses to further his torture of Mason. He shoves the plant into Mason’s mouth, causing him immense pain. Mason reveals that he’s getting the stone for Katherine so she can lift the curse of the moon, because she supposedly loves him. Seemingly entertained, Damon tells Jeremy to leave or get over his sympathy. After Jeremy leaves, he ends Mason’s life by ripping his heart from his chest. Stefan arrives later, while he’s cleaning up the body, giving Damon the moon stone to hide. Finding that the last number Mason dialed was Katherine’s, Damon calls her, much to Stefan’s disapproval. He taunts Katherine with Mason’s death, angering her. After Jenna stabs herself, on Katherine’s compulsion, Damon confronts Elena and apologizes for provoking her.
In Masquerade, Damon participates in a conversation with Stefan and Caroline, claiming that he’s going to the Masquerade Ball to kill Katherine. Bonnie comes over later, while Damon and Alaric are discussing weapons in the background. Stefan and Damon show up at the Masquerade Ball with masks on, discussing how one of them might hesitate while killing Katherine. They meet up again after Katherine kills Aimee Bradley; Stefan wants to call the plan off, as he didn’t anticipate human death, but Damon objects and they agree to go through with it. When they trap Katherine in one of the Lockwood Mansion’s rooms, they attack her viciously, stabbing her multiple times with their supply of stakes.
Jeremy arrives to tell them that their every action toward Katherine is being reflected onto Elena, which stops the in their tracks. Katherine continually tries to hurt herself to cause Elena pain, but she’s stopped by the Salvatores. She tries to make a deal with them; she wants the moon stone back. She also tells Damon that he used to be boring, and tries to antagonize them by pointing out Damon’s love for Elena. Damon is the first to give in to her taunts, attempting to stake Katherine after pouring her a drink. Stefan stops him, but Katherine continues to play with his emotions, wondering when Damon got so hot. The witch Lucy uses the moon stone to subdue Katherine, apologizing to the brothers for her involvement with Katherine. Damon carries Katherine’s body to the tomb, throwing both her and the moon stone inside. As he shuts the door, she tries to stop him by claiming that Elena is in danger. He listens to her momentarily, but then shuts her inside. Damon, again, seems to have been emotionally affected by Katherine as he walks away.
In Rose, Damon appears at Caroline’s house, whose explaining how Tyler killed a girl at the Masquerade ball. He questions what Caroline has told Tyler about him and Stefan, convinced he knows something. He tells her not to befriend Tyler. Later, he talks to Stefan about Elena’s disappearance. He tells him that Katherine knew Elena was in danger. The two of them take a Vervain grenade from Alaric and, using Bonnie’s instructions, go to rescue Elena. Stefan thanks him for coming, but attempts to get him to admit he only came because he loves Elena.
Before they get to Trevor and Rose’s hideout, the two of them share a blood-bag, where Damon taunts him with the darkness in his past, wondering if Elena would ever ‘open her veins’ to the old Stefan. The two have a brief conversation outside before coming in to rescue Elena from Elijah. Damon drives a large piece of wood through Elijah’s chest, and while Elena is hugging Stefan, she mouths a thank-you to Damon, as well. Later, when Damon is drinking at the boarding house, Stefan approaches and tells Damon they should learn to work together, or they won’t be able to protect Elena. He also apologizes for making Damon turn into a vampire. Damon seems surprised by his words, and this prompts him to visit Elena in her bedroom, where he reveals that he found Elena's necklace. He doesn’t give it to her at first, holding it as he tells her that he loves her, but that he doesn’t deserve her; Stefan does. Tears can be seen in his eyes as he says this. He compels her to forget what he said and, after returning the necklace, leaves her room.
In Katerina, Damon expresses immediate distrust toward Rose, who comes back to tell them that a legendary vampire named Klaus is after Elena. He doesn’t want Elena to believe that she’s in danger. After Elena leaves to talk to Katherine, Damon spends the day with Rose. He asks her if she knows where Klaus is, and convinces her to take him to see the vampire who supposedly knows where to look. When they meet up with Slater at a vampire-friendly café, he threatens her against tricking him, but she proves that she’s much stronger than him by turning the tables. She tells him that he can trust her, and the two of them go inside. Slater immediately recognizes Damon; he knows the year he was turned and the person who turned him, which seems to make Damon suspicious. They talk about Slater’s very long link to Elijah, which was severed when Damon killed him. Slater tells them that, if Elijah wanted the moon stone, he might’ve been planning to break the vampire-side of the curse so that the werewolves wouldn’t break their side.
Damon wonders how to break the curse, but they’re interrupted by an attack from Elijah, who breaks the windows of the café. Rose is seriously injured by sun exposure and Damon is forced to carry her back to the car, where she tells him that they’re all going to be killed by Klaus. Later, Rose apologizes for the surprise attack, expressing a desire to save Elena. She tells him to turn the ‘switch’ off of his emotions, and the two of them have sex. They’re seen sitting by the fire in their underclothes, where Rose points out that having a ‘switch’ is a lie, and that they can’t actually shut off their emotions. Rose gets a call from Slater, who tells her she needs the moon stone to lift the curse, and a witch to figure the rest out.
In The Sacrifice, Stefan and Damon visit Katherine together, as the moon stone is in the tomb with her. They come directly to Elena’s home afterwards, explaining that she wanted out of the tomb, if they wanted the moon stone. They also tell her that they must "release" the spell from the moon stone so Klaus won’t be able to sacrifice Elena. When Elena tells them that she doesn’t want Klaus to kill everyone she cares about, both brothers express extreme surprise. Damon appears later during their meeting with Bonnie, where Jeremy tries to convince them to let him retrieve the moon stone. While he’s planning to incapacitate Katherine to get the stone, Damon gets a call from Rose, who tells them about Elena’s plan to give herself over to Klaus.
She tells him that she would rather die than let Klaus kill the people she loves. He threatens her, grabbing her arm, and when she attempts to hit him, he menacingly warns her to never do that again. Three men arrive and Damon immediately tries to protect Elena, even from Elijah, who was supposed to be dead. Elijah flees, leaving Damon to drive Elena home on his own. The two of them bicker on the front porch, but Elena is surprised to find an injured Jeremy waiting for her. When she finds that Stefan has been trapped in the tomb with Katherine, Damon stops her from entering, restraining her against the doorway until she leaves. Stefan makes him promise to protect Elena while he’s unable to.
In By the Light of the Moon, Damon visits Stefan in the tomb to tell him that they trapped Elena in her own house. He tries to give him blood, but Stefan refuses, not wanting to share with Katherine. He comes to Elena’s house later to be one of her ‘babysitters,’ taunting her about not being able to leave. She’s angry with him, but Damon continues to have a care-free attitude. He gets a call from Alaric, who tells him that a woman from Florida has come searching for Mason Lockwood. He meets Alaric at the bar, who’s been having a conversation with the woman.
While Damon is distracting her, Alaric pours wolfs bane into her drink. Damon talks to her about Mason, claiming to be one of his friends, but she responds suspiciously when he tries to get her to have a drink with him (in other words, to sip the wolfs bane so he can tell if she’s a werewolf.) She doesn’t fall for it, able to smell the wolfs bane in his drink. Damon threatens her, but she responds by declaring how strong she is on this night in-particular (the full moon). Alaric warns Damon to go home and stay inside, because one bite from the werewolf will effectively end his life. He goes home, where Rose has been waiting. He acts coldly toward her as she tries to apologize about helping Elena, admitting she has nowhere else to go. When Jules, the werewolf he taunted in the bar, leaps through one of the Salvatore’s windows, she bites Rose’s shoulder before Damon stabs her, getting her to run off. The bite heals immediately, mystifying both vampires. Rose is terrified that her life almost ended, and Damon comforts her with a hug. The two are seen again in the living room, where they begin another heated sexual encounter, but they’re interrupted when Damon discovers that the bite on her shoulder has resurfaced. This is particularly devastating news to Damon, because the two of them were just beginning to develop a friendship.
In The Descent, Damon cares for Rose trying to convince her that she’ll get better. When he looks at the worsening wound, he pretends that it’s getting better. He asks Elena to watch over Rose, but he rejects the fact that he’s upset about Rose’s impending death. Damon goes from there to the Mystic Grill, where he immediately goes for Jules. Stefan stops him, but he continues, sitting down at her table. Though he pretended he didn’t care about Rose, he asks how to cure a werewolf bite. She won’t tell him, and she taunts him about how much pain Rose will be in, and how she’ll soon be rabid from dementia. He tracks Rose down after she slaughters a man. He meets up with Elena, who he arms with a wooden stake. He stops Rose before she takes yet another victim, pinning her to the ground in a parking lot. He comforts her when she realizes what she’s done, picking her up and carrying her back to the Salvatore Boarding House. Damon watches over her after putting her back in his bed, where he reacts coldly to Elena’s presence. He also snaps at Rose, denying that he cares about her. When Rose tells Elena that what it was like to be human ‘haunts her,’ he turns to watch, surprised when she begins writhing in agony.
He sends Elena away, getting into bed with Rose and holding her against his chest. He sends her a dream of the place she was born and raised, where the two of them sit together in a beautiful meadow. Just as she admits that she’s no longer afraid of dying, actually hopeful she’ll see Trevor again, Damon stakes her to end her suffering. A tear goes down his cheek as he does this. He delivers her body to Sheriff Forbes to explain the earlier attacks on humans and when he returns to the boarding house, Elena is waiting. She tries to comfort him, but he denies that there’s anything wrong with him. He responds angrily, saying that he feels emotions, and that ‘it sucks.’ He feels guilty because Jules was coming after him, not Rose. Elena hugs him anyway, and Damon’s eyes begin to visibly water. That same night, Damon is lying in the middle of the road when a woman named Jessica stops her car to check on him. He tells her that he’s lost (existentially, metaphorically). When he drinks alcohol from a flask, she runs back to her car, but he compels her not to move. He admits that he can’t be what other people want him to be, and he tells her that he misses being human more than anything in the world, debating whether or not he should kill her. After he tells her she’s free to go, he pursues her and kills her anyway.
In Daddy Issues, Damon first appears in the shower, a very dark look on his face as he listens to a news report about the people Rose killed. They mention the woman he killed in the road. He’s angry with Stefan when Stefan brings John Gilbert back to Mystic Falls in an effort to save Elena. When Stefan tries to comfort him about Rose’s death, Damon reacts sarcastically and leaves. He goes to the Gilbert House, where he demands to know John’s location. They share a distrust for John, where he says ‘I’m the good guy now, remember?’ Elena decides to go with him to find John out of concern that Damon will harm him. They find John at the grill, where he’s interrupting Jenna’s date with Alaric. He tries to get information out of him, threatening his life because he’s lacking his resurrection ring. His threat is ineffective because John doesn’t trust him. When Jenna tries to get him to date her friend, Andie Star, he blows her off. Elena receives a call from Stefan regarding Tyler Lockwood, and Elena and Damon have a heated discussion in the bathroom. He wants to kill Tyler because of what he knows. Elena tells him to be the better man. When John arrives, wondering what’s happening, Damon tells John to keep Elena there so he can go rescue Caroline, who is being held captive and tortured by Jules and her boyfriend, Brady. Stefan and Damon are almost killed during this rescue, but they’re spared by the warlock Jonas Martin, who was working with Elijah. John later gives Damon a bottle of white oak ashes and a silver dagger with which to kill an Original.
That night, Damon invites Andie Star to his house and the two of them share a bubble bath. Damon tells her that he’s in love with a woman he can never have, and that he doesn’t trust himself around anyone. He says that he kills people, but he compels her to be unafraid. When asked why he kills people, Damon says that he likes it, and that Elena wants him to be the better man, but his nature won’t allow it. While kissing her, Damon slips down her neck and bites her, filling the bathtub with her blood.
In Crying Wolf, Damon has bandaged Andie’s neck, and they walk downstairs together. She reveals that she’s going to the Historical Society Tea Party, something Damon invites himself to. He also gets her story straight so she won’t tell anyone he bit her, and he tells Alaric, who has just come in, that she’s his new girlfriend. He tells Alaric about the dagger, and Alaric says that he and Jenna will also be at the party. He claims his goal isn’t killing Elijah, but meeting him for the first time. At the party, which is being held in the large Lockwood Mansion, Damon meets up with Andie, also greeting Carol Lockwood and introducing himself, officially, to Elijah. Damon and Elijah have a conversation in the sitting room, where Damon questions his motives and goes so far as to physically block him from the exit. Elijah responds with physical violence, stabbing Damon in the neck with a broken pencil.
Damon returns to the Salvatore home, where he and Alaric are talking about how difficult it will be to kill Elijah. After Alaric leaves, Damon finds that someone has stabbed him in the stomach with a stake, and that same person leaps onto Damon’s back and injects him with Vervain. Jules is behind the attack. She chains him to a chair, which is ironically similar to the way he tortured Mason Lockwood to death, and questions him about the moon stone. Elijah shows up and kills four werewolves, saving Damon’s life for the third time. Later, while on the phone with Bonnie, he’s told that Elijah and Elena’s deal called for Elena’s death. He calls Stefan and relays this information.
In The Dinner Party, Damon acts on his plans to kill Elijah. He’s first seen on the phone with Stefan. He tells his brother that Tyler Lockwood has left town, leaving them with only one problem: Elijah. He reveals that he’s going to be careful when killing Elijah. He speaks with Alaric, who expresses distaste with Damon and Andie’s relationship. He invites Jenna and Elijah, who have been speaking of historic Mystic Falls, and Andie tells them they should have a dinner party. Damon jumps at the idea, and Elijah agrees. Damon goes to the tomb and, now that the spell is lifted and he can move around freely, he brings Katherine blood and clothing, wondering if what John Gilbert said about killing Elijah is true. Katherine tells him that if Elijah dies, she’s stuck in the tomb forever, begging him not to kill the Original. By doing this, she confirms that it’s possible to kill an Original. Damon denies (to Alaric) that he’ll do anything to antagonize Elijah, but when Alaric leaves the room, he pulls the dagger and the ash from its hiding place. The party continues into a tense dinner, where Damon and John Gilbert, who arrived uninvited, prod Elijah for information. Meanwhile, Elena and Stefan figure out that if a vampire wields the dagger and kills an Original, it will die. Stefan calls Alaric and warns him, who is barely able to stop Damon in time. When they return to the dining room, Damon tries to convince Elijah to kill John Gilbert, and the two of them seem to put Elijah on the defensive. He threatens to take Elena away and protect her himself, so neither of them will see her again.
In the middle of this, Alaric uses the dagger to kill him, and the two of them lock him in the basement. Alaric is angry that Damon plotted Elijah’s death without him, and that he had to kill him with Jenna in the house. Stefan calls again to tell Damon that removing the dagger will bring Elijah back to life, and, panicking, Damon runs down to the basement. He finds it empty. Knowing that Elijah will come after Elena, Damon participates in a plan to bring him down, helping Stefan transport the body back to the basement. He finds the moon stone in Elijah’s pocket and decides to hold onto it. Elena then tells both Salvatores that she doesn’t want to be kept in the dark anymore, if they truly want her to keep fighting. They agree, and Damon wonders how he changed her mind; when Lexi is mentioned, Damon recalls the first time he ever met her, and that he told her to take care of his brother. She warns him that his hatred will get the best of him, which is ironic, because it eventually consumed his life. At the very end of the episode, Damon enters his room and finds Katherine naked in his shower. She reveals that killing Elijah removed his compulsion over her, and that she was able to escape the tomb. She claims she wants to help him.
In The House Guest, Damon first appears as Elena is leaving the house. He attacks her and pushes her against the wall, believing she’s Katherine and inevitably revealing to both Elena and Stefan that Katherine has escaped the tomb. It turns out that the person Damon attacked was actually Katherine, and that when Stefan went back to his room to attack who he thought was her, he nearly choked Elena. Damon talks to her down in the basement, where Damon is using a blow-torch on Elijah’s body. He wonders if she knew that using the dagger would kill him, and, angry, he points the blow-torch at her instead. She continues to try to convince him that she wants Klaus dead as badly as they do. She even told him that she didn’t care if he died, as long as she got out of the tomb. Damon remains in the house with Katherine. He’s trying to find out where the witches were massacred. She antagonizes him and he ends up pinning her to the piano seat, where she says she’s glad he’s not dead. She gives him sparse information about the location while also asking why he cares. Stefan appears and suggests they find the Witch Burial Ground. When Luka Martin enters the Salvatore house using his mind, it leads into a scene between Katherine and Damon in which she leans over his shoulder and points out how her old friend, Emily Bennett, was burned alive in the same place the other witches were. Stefan comes they speak as if they’re at a loss, but use gestures to reveal information to each other so that Katherine won’t know anything. Katherine calls for Damon when she’s attacked by Luka, and he pulls the stake from her stomach, using the blow-torch to burn Luka alive. He later brings Katherine a blood-bag, but stabs her after she takes it, revenge for not telling him that the dagger would take his life. She tells him that John Gilbert and Isobel want Damon and Stefan out of Elena’s life. He knew that killing Elijah would get her out of the tomb, so he gave Katherine a choice: either she stay and help them with Klaus, or he would kill Stefan. Damon points out that John Gilbert still tried to kill him, and Katherine tells him that, since she could only save one of them, she chose Stefan. Damon tries to go to Elena’s aid when Jonas Martin comes after her, but Katherine stops him, as she plans to step into Elena’s place at the house and kill him. He later tells Elena that it was Katherine’s idea in the first place. He hovers in the background as Elena and Katherine argue, where Katherine tries to convince them that she’s not a threat. In his bedroom, Katherine jumps onto his bed in a very short dress. Damon wonders how everyone knew that Emily Bennett was a witch back in 1864. He finds that Katherine was the one to expose her, and she reveals that he knows where the witches were burned, because he would’ve been there. She tries to kiss him, but he pushes her off, telling her to find somewhere else to sleep. This strengthens his resistance to the power Katherine has over him.
In Know Thy Enemy, Damon and Stefan are rushing downstairs, discussing why Isobel would show up on Elena’s doorstep. Katherine tells them not to reveal her presence in Mystic Falls, because it would be easier to keep ‘swapping places’ with Elena if no one knew about her. Damon, Bonnie, and Jeremy go to Jonas Martin’s apartment, where she tells Damon that if she can find the place where the witches were burned, she can harness their power. Damon’s also in the living room when Katherine asks them all about their plan, which they refuse to tell her. Damon, Jeremy, and Bonnie later go to the Witch Burial Ground, where a mansion stands. As soon as he enters, Damon finds that the spirits there are vicious toward vampires, and they temporarily disable his ring so the sun will burn him. He manages to get out before he’s burned too badly. While Bonnie and Jeremy work inside the house, he hovers on the porch. When he tries to enter, the door slams shut of its own accord. Carol Lockwood and Sheriff Forbes call Damon when John Gilbert is ‘killed’ at a social gathering. He tells them that John will come back to life and carries John’s body back to his house. His hands are bloody, so he washes them, and after receiving a frantic call from Stefan, he finds that Katherine has taken the moon stone from the soap dish, where he ‘cleverly’ hid it. He finds the place where Katherine is most likely to be hiding, and he and Stefan find Isobel’s bags inside. At this point, Katherine, Elena, and the moon stone have gone missing. After Elena is released and Isobel dies in the sunlight, Damon approaches with the deed to the house, which will make Elena the owner. When she signs it, the Salvatore Boarding House will be inaccessible to any vampires she doesn’t allow inside. Damon and Stefan figure out that Bonnie is their "secret weapon," now that she’s harvested the power of the dead witches.
In The Last Dance, Elena signs the deed, giving her ownership of the house. Outside, Damon and Stefan talk about Klaus. Damon wonders if she’s dead, though he seems rather disturbed by the idea. Once they’re finished, Elena invites Stefan in immediately, but makes Damon promise to listen to her. After Klaus sends Elena a message telling her that he’ll be at the dance, Damon invites Alaric to the house and tells him to put him down as a chaperone. He attacks Bonnie, trying to prove that she’s not strong enough, but she blows him across the room, revealing that she can kill any vampire, no matter how strong. At the dance, Damon suggests that everyone blend into the party. He goes to talk to Alaric, unaware that he’s actually Klaus. Elena wants to warn Caroline and Matt about Klaus, but Stefan decides to do it himself, calling Damon over to dance with Elena. Damon is lucid and comforts Elena while they dance, drawing a few giggles despite their serious situation. He later dances with Bonnie, as he heard her and Jeremy talking earlier. He wants to know if killing Klaus through magic will kill her, and he wonders if there’s any way to keep her alive. After Klaus reveals his identity, Damon sends Elena to find Stefan, grabbing Bonnie and making a plan with her to fake her death so Klaus will give up in his attempts to kill her. He returns when Elena is grieving over Bonnie’s lifeless body, coldly telling them he’ll deal with it. When he gets back to the house, having dealt with the body, Elena accuses him of knowing what would happen, and she slaps him. He finally explains that it was all a plan to save her life and keep her as their secret weapon. He leaves her there, but Stefan follows, upset that he didn’t tell him about the plan and that he put Elena through so much emotional pain. Damon calls it ‘collateral damage,’ assuring Stefan that, at the end of the day, he’ll keep Elena alive regardless of the cost. This is brought up again when Elena visits him in his room. She tells him that she won’t let Bonnie die for her and he responds in a similar way, telling her that he would let anyone die to keep her alive. Her life will always be his first choice.
In Klaus, Damon sees Andie off to work while Stefan searches for Elena. He follows Stefan to the basement, where they find that Elena has brought Elijah back to life. He’s convinced Elena will get herself killed, deciding to do something about it regardless of Stefan’s resolution to trust Elena. He and Andie go to Alaric’s apartment, where Katherine is being held prisoner. Damon can’t enter, due to the fact that Alaric is still alive and hasn’t invited him in, so he talks to Katherine through the door, offering her a small vial of Vervain, which will protect her from Klaus’ compulsion, in exchange for the answer to a question: he wants to know why she turned on them with Isobel. She admits that she knew they wouldn’t be able to kill Klaus, and, pointing out where that betrayal got her, Damon hands over the Vervain. He returns as Elena is trying to leave again and physically restrains her, antagonizing Stefan. Andie tries to comfort him as he drinks by the fire, but he sends her away, leading to Stefan’s entrance. Stefan darkly thanks him for being in love with Elena, if only it means Elena is being protected. The two get physical when Stefan claims that he has one thing Damon will never have: Elena’s respect. Elena appears with Elijah and stops them, explaining that Elijah knows a way to bring her back to life after she’s sacrificed. Elijah only requests an apology, which Damon refuses to give. He leaves angry and encounters Andie, in only her bra and underwear, waiting in his room. She wants to comfort him, but his anger gets the best of him and he bites her. He shows remorse by gently telling her to leave again, before he accidentally kills her. He’s last seen sitting there with watering eyes and bloody lips, staring after her.
In The Last Day, Damon is lying in bed listening to Elena, Stefan, and Elijah talk about the sun and moon curse. 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. When Elijah reveals that Klaus will truly have to kill Elena to complete the ritual, Damon becomes aggressive, rejecting that the Elixir will work and positive that Elena won’t survive this new plan. After leaving, drink in hand, he’s approached by Stefan, who would rather trust Elena’s choices. Damon rejects that idea, and when 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. Damon then goes to the grill, where he and Alaric are approached by Klaus. The Original warns him against protecting Elena, or doing anything ‘stupid,’ telling him that the ritual would be happening that very night. Being himself, Damon does just that, visiting Katherine in Alaric’s apartment to ascertain the location of the vampire and werewolf Klaus will be using as sacrifices. She unwillingly tells him to go to the tomb, where she says both Tyler Lockwood and Caroline Forbes are being held. He’s nearly stopped by the warlock guarding the tomb, but assisted by Matt Donovan, who he subsequently knocks unconscious for turning a high-powered rifle on him. Damon receives a call from Stefan as they are fleeing through the woods; Elena has already been taken by Klaus. Then, to make matters worse, the full moon bears down on them and Tyler begins his transformation, putting both Damon and Caroline in great danger. Tyler tries to bite Caroline immediately but Damon blocks him, receiving a bite on his forearm, near the crook of his elbow.
Damon goes straight from there to Alaric’s apartment, where Klaus has been staying. He boasts about what he’s done to keep Klaus from completing the ritual, but Klaus reveals that he has the werewolf Jules as a backup. Klaus then knocks Damon unconscious, and when Katherine wakes him up, he demands to know why Klaus didn’t use him in the sacrifice, instead of Jenna Sommers. Katherine tells him that Klaus said Damon was already as good as dead, questioning him about the bite on his arm. Damon admits that he was bitten by a werewolf, which both of them know means the death of a vampire.
In The Sun Also Rises, the ritual begins and Damon and Katherine are still in the apartment, examining the wound on his arm. Katherine seems upset that he’ll die, but Damon reacts coldly because, again, she chose to save herself instead of Jenna. He returns to the Salvatore Boarding House, and he seems to be in pain from his bite, as his walk falters when he goes to answer the knock of John Gilbert. He tells Elena’s father that Klaus has Elena, but that, since she has his blood in her system, she’ll come back as a vampire. The two of them go to the Witch Burial Ground, where he has a heated conversation with Alaric. He still appears to be in pain, which concerns Alaric. He’s present for the conversation about transferring John’s life-force into Elena’s body, though he seems to think it won’t work.
He impatiently waits for the spell to be complete. Bonnie and Damon head out, leaving Alaric in the house. As Bonnie goes through with her plan to kill the transitioning hybrid, Damon kills Greta Martin and retrieves Elena’s lifeless body. He carries her back to the old witch house and sets her on the couch in the main room, waiting by her side. When Alaric asks about Jenna, he gives him a sad look and a genuine apology. As Elena comes back to life, Damon makes sure she’s not in transition, and he’s extremely relieved that she’s alright. After the ritual, Damon attends the funeral of Jenna Sommers and John Gilbert, where he tells Stefan about his werewolf bite. Stefan assures him that they’ll find a cure, but Damon believes that he’ll soon die. He doesn’t want Elena to know so she won’t have another grave to mourn.
In As I Lay Dying, 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. He returns home and, directly after pouring himself a drink, he removes his sunlight ring in front of the window, planning to let himself burn to death. Stefan stops him and locks him in the basement, where Damon begins coughing up blood. His condition deteriorates rapidly from that point. He starts hallucinating about his time with Katherine in 1864, and the choices she gave him while they were together, such as feeding from her. The wound on his arm is significantly larger by the time Alaric comes by to watch over him. Damon grabs Alaric’s neck with one hand, begging his old friend to kill him, but Alaric knocks him back and refuses.
As he lays on the ground, he whispers Elena’s name. Later, Elizabeth Forbes shows up with her deputies, but inevitably sets Damon free. He wanders through the showing of “Gone with the Wind,” where he’s found and escorted to the Mystic Grill by Jeremy. The sheriff finds them here and tries to shoot Damon, but when Damon flees, Jeremy is shot instead. He goes back to the movie, wandering around behind the screen, and encounters Elena. His hallucinations have become more extreme, and he pictures himself feeding from Katherine’s neck back in 1864, transferring that memory to Elena in the present. When he realizes that he’s biting Elena, he stumbles back and collapses. She hits her knees beside him, holding him against her chest as she searches for someone to help them.
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 Salvatores, because she did. She leaves and Elena and Damon remain to contemplate what’s going to happen to Stefan.
Damon sat in the boarding house not sure what to really think about his brother. They had been getting along alright lately, but things were slowly taking a turn for the worst. He didn't know what to say to him anymore, hell he didn't even want to talk to him, eve time he tried to it just pissed him off more. He stood up pouring himself a drink as he continued to think to himself what it really was that pissed him off so much about Stefan. He took a long drink of straight whiskey, it helped him cope with well life. Then it came to him, he figured it out for sure, Stefan was weak…so weak, he always had been. When he was turned, hell before he completed his transition he had no self control, he couldn't even resist the urge for blood back then and then as he became a ripper, weakness thats all he was. He took in a breath and a smirk fell to his face. He then moved up the stairs quickly using his vampire speed. He rummaged though Stefan's draws till he found what he was looking for, his diary. Damon was always in the mood to read that, it always made him feel a better reading about his brothers misery. As it was he found it always good for a laugh as well. He sat on his brothers bed looking though page after page till he stopped on the latest entry. His smirk grew even bigger as he read his left eye brow rose. So Stefan and Elena were having problems were they? He thought to himself…Perfect. He quickly closed the diary and the draw he found it in. It was time to plan, this was his one chance to really get back at his brother for stealing Katherine from him, yes so she didn't love him back, but his brother had gone to far, he had moved in on the women he loved, now it was Damon's turn to really show Stefan how it felt.
