The Vampire Diaries to Air Damon Origin Episode

at . Comments

He's a lover. He's a fighter. He's a self-destructive wild card who lashes out when hurt, as evidenced by his actions to conclude "Dangerous Liaisons."

He's Damon Salvatore, and he's the heart, soul and often shirtless body of of The Vampire Diaries. But how did he come to be this way? We'll find out on March 15.

In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly (yes, this one), Julie Plec prepares fans for a significant flashback installment. It will focus on Damon and, in the words of this producer, depict "the birth and rebirth of that wicked, wonderful character."

Very Dapper Damon

How mysterious. How intriguing. How many days until March 15?!?

OMFG can all you Dalena shippers are driving me insane!!!!! All you do is bitch bitch bitch about how they aren't together, how it's soooo unfair, or how Stelena is boring. Can't y'all be satisfied that Nina &Ian are together in real life? Y'all ruin the show for the rest of us.


@ ipse: It is just not fair that it's always Stefan and Elena. And that the writers transformed Elena in such a bitch. She was my favorite character and after this episode i just thought that she's like katherine now. That's sad.
It's ok if Damon and Elena fighting. I can deal with that. But that he sleeps with Rebecca?! The bitch who tried to kill the love of his life?!
That's just wrong. @ Natts: i do so agree with you.


i am still being hurted after those horrible twists of last episode. We had stefan + elena for season 1,2 and now 3. No change.she is soo in love with him - after what he has done. Producers gave hope for Damon and Elena being together (for first time a bloody change) I looked forward to see them together. And in one episode - producers destroyed it. Stefan and Elena fans are getting their bloody wishes of seeing stefan and elena together and they will get to see them back as couple for sure.But excuse me - that is Selfish and unfair treating fans who watch the show - it's very heartbreaking for fans like me - to give hopes of seeing something different - elena + damon as a couple for a first time - and then break it all in one episode.producers really broke my heart and i still cannot get a grip after last episode - I need to cry as I had a huge hopes to see after that long time waiting - Elena + Damon as a couple - Now i feel that this show will be ruined as Gossip Girl.


@frustrated and @xoxo: I agree that elena acted VERY unsensitive and I think that she actually did not mean to say that the fact that he loves her is the problem but that this causes him to be overprotective (in her eyes). Nevertheless it was painful to watch! But I would not paint their future as black as you both did - they will be on good terms soon enough. And sometimes you need a fight before you can take the next step relationwise... remember them fight about damon feeding on bill? Damon left town with Katherine only to come back in the next epi and swear he would never leave her again and elena for the first time was perfectly comfortable with it. Well, of course I dont know what is up for them and where this will lead but this is certainly not the end of the story of damon and elena, so relax and try to enjoy the ups and the downs this show gives them and all the other characters.


@frustaded: i agree with you. Good comment.


My prayers have finally been answered!!! All I've ever wanted was a flashback episode that revolved around my baby Damon. I'm excited!! They better not F this up.


I'm frustrated w how they destroyed the closeness between Elena and Damon. She started pushing him away after the kiss. Either she is pushing him away because she is mad at herself for feeling things for him or she is just selfish and only used Damon when it served her purposes. Whatever the reasoning I think they severed any chance of them being together which means that who build up of them getting close was just a tease. I didn't start really finding the show that enthralling until that action started happening. Stefan was always too mopey and boring. They spent 2 1/2 seasons having Elena trying to get Damon to feel again but then the second he does she slams him for it and says it's too much. Feeling too much was his weakness and she knew that by the fact that he threw his human life away to save Katherine then pined for her for over 100 years. She openned the flood gates with his feelings then she just crushes him. It really makes me not want to watch any more.


I can't agree more with @ Melody. True dat!!


Damon...heartbroken yet again. So much has already damaged him. He deserves better �


@Borednow, I say that only because I know Julie Plec wasn't the one who made Damon awesome. It was Kevin Williamson who gave him the snark. JP turned him into this heroic, lovey-dovey piner who Damon fans feel sorry for.
For the first two seasons, we saw Damon use all these weird, creepy tricks, and I really liked it because it was scary and different. The crow, the fog, the dropping down from the air, and the lying in the middle of the road in the middle of the night, it was fun to watch. He struck this balance between being predatory and charming. Now he's Elena's lap dog, and it's painful to watch. I don't think they know the first thing about how Damon became awesome because they're the ones who took it away from him.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
