“You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger...” — Damon's first words to Elena in The Departed


The relationship between the cured vampire/human doppelgänger, Elena Gilbert and the cured vampire/human, Damon Salvatore, is a complicated, but a popular and powerful romantic pairing, and a significant relationship in the series.


Though initially started on antagonistic terms, their relationship develops throughout the series. He was the narcissistic evil vampire, who came to town to seek revenge on his younger brother, who Elena happened to develop an interest in. When everyone had written Damon off as a bad guy who couldn't be redeemed, Elena, who was unafraid of him and willing to call him on his crap, saw something in him that hinted he wasn't entirely evil.


And so there marked the start of a tentative friendship. Over the seasons, their bond continues to grow, from becoming allies to friends, to best friends and, ultimately, lovers. He’s always saving her from danger and she’s saving him from his dark self, they both care deeply for each other, regardless of any obstacles that may come in their way


They both love each other with a passion that consumes them. For him, she is the best thing that has ever happened to him in his life. For her, he is the one that defines her and believes him to be her soulmate.


"Drawn together and not pulling away."— Describing their relationship


"Because of Damon's feelings for Elena, thinking that, for the very first time in his life that he has a home, Elena is the one who helped Damon find his home and his home is Elena."


"That's the journey, I don't just want to throw them together tomorrow. I'd be sad. I want to see the kiss, I want to see the sweaty palms, I want to see it all go down."


"Even before anything happened in our series, Elena had been touched in her soul by this man."


"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 die hard belief that she loved Damon, that she loved him more than she'd ever loved anyone."


"I think that's what makes them as a couple so powerful. Even if the story line is them not dating, it's still a love story."


"It was going to be something beautiful and epic, so the rain was a way of us [honoring] this group of fans who spent five years begging for this one thing. … I think it’s because of The Notebook … oh, and Spider-Man. Basically, there’s something about people coming together in the rain that’s the ultimate expression of love in the minds of most audiences."


"The show was so Delena-heavy. And their love was such an epic love and such a big story point for so many years that it's a strange dynamic now to have all that gone. Which is kind of what makes it interesting, because it's an Elena we've never seen before.""


"At the end of the day, it is for love and he's going to try everything he can to get her back and win her back."


"They’ve been through a lot. Love trumps all. So when you see, you want it to win."


"I think they're a pretty damn epic television couple."


"I think there’s some terrific fan fiction to be written about Damon’s first years as a human, but he was ready for it. He wanted it. He wants her. And when all is said and done, after going through such a trauma, to be able to grow old and die with your one true love is a beautiful solace in an otherwise difficult time."


"Elena and Damon had a connection that was unlike any other. And you could see it onscreen. It was a very tumultuous back-and-forth relationship. But love ultimately prevails"


Damon came back to Mystic Falls with the sole purpose of bringing back Katherine Pierce, the vampire with whom he had fallen in love as a human in 1864. However, after realizing that Katherine had secretly escaped the tomb but hadn't cared enough about him to find him, he resented her. He begins to fall for his younger brother Stefan's girlfriend, also Katherine's doppelgänger, Elena. His love for Elena makes him want to protect his birthtown instead of destroying it, as was his original purpose when he arrived. They form a rocky friendship.


Elena constantly forgives Damon from doing horrible things to her, such as killing her younger brother Jeremy (although he came back to life) or feeding her vampire blood (essentially ending her human life). Elena has admitted she sees the good in Damon and believes he's worth saving. Elena begins to reciprocate Damon's feelings for her, though continues to love Stefan.


Their friendship deepens, leading to them becoming best friends. Elena cares whether Damon lives or dies, and even when she chooses Stefan over him, Damon continues to still be there for her when she needs somebody and feels she can't turn to Stefan about it. Damon has never lied to her and would always tell her the truth, although he has admitted that he will lie to her if it saves her life.


After becoming a vampire, Elena breaks up with Stefan as her feelings for Damon had become too strong for her to ignore. Elena and Damon sleep together after she admits to her feelings. It's discovered that because Elena had feelings for Damon when she was human and it was his blood which turned her, a sire bond has been created between them. Damon begins to doubt her feelings for him and believes they are solely built on the sire bond. After being compelled by Rebekah to tell the truth, Elena reveals that she is no longer in love with Stefan and is instead in love with Damon.


She later confesses this to him, stating that it's the most real thing she's ever felt. After Jeremy dies, Damon uses the sire bond to get Elena to turn her emotions off, knowing that the pain would be too much for her. She loses all feelings she has for him as a result, but continues a relationship with him solely for manipulation, later telling him her feelings were all due to the sire bond. Damon's willing to do anything to get her emotions back, including torturing her and killing Matt (although he was brought back to life), which eventually proved successful.


Elena later chooses between Damon and Stefan for the second time, this time choosing Damon, since she had fallen out of love with Stefan. She confirms her love for Damon during a heartfelt confession from them both, and they kiss. Damon's later proud as he says to Alaric, "I got the girl."


Their relationship lasts the whole summer and briefly becomes long distance when she begins attending college. After realizing how he's changing her, he decides to break up with her, causing her great heartbreak. Stefan makes Damon realize how stupid he was acting and he decides to try and win her back. However, when he finally tells her, he's unaware that Katherine has taken over Elena's body when she rejects him. This sends him off the deep end and he becomes guilty when he finds out the truth.


After he tells her the truth, they mutually decide to end their relationship as they realize they have too much control over each other. However they end up sleeping together. But after that, Elena tells Damon that he has to let her go until they can figure things out.


As Markos, the Travelers' leader finally makes his appearance, Elena and Stefan begin to have visions of a life that they would never have. Damon is hurt by this but Elena lets him know that the universe doesn't control anything and that her and Damon are real, not those visions. She tries to be friends with him but he refuses and they try to avoid one another which turns out to be impossible.


After getting kidnapped by Markos, nearly dying and with a little encouragement from Stefan she tells Damon that she thought she would never see him again and couldn't think of a worse way to die and so they both rekindle their relationship. In the finale of Season Five, in order to bring Stefan back from the Other Side, Damon and Elena go on a suicide mission. However, when the resurrection spell starts, Damon is unable to come back from the Other Side. Knowing that the Other Side is disintegrating and there is no other way for Damon to return, Elena breaks down completely.


A ghost Damon confesses to her that she is the greatest thing that ever happened to him and the fact that he will die knowing he was loved by Elena Gilbert is the epitome of a fulfilled life. Damon says I love you and leaves while Elena continues to cry and pleas with him to return to her.


Months after Damon's death, Elena desperately mourns him. During that time, Elena had been using a witch drug that allowed her to hallucinate Damon as she does not want to believe that he's dead. 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. After Damon's return from death, Elena tries to avoid him but changes her mind and decides that she wants her memories of him back.


However, Alaric becomes human because of crossing the anti magic border and is unable to give Elena her memories. At first, Elena tries to move on but then realizes she can't seem to shake her feelings for Damon. They both decide to make new memories and start their relationship anew. As they started to bond, Elena began to see the good side of Damon as he worked hard to bring Bonnie back from the Prison World.


During their new relationship, Elena continued to fall for Damon and eventually got back together with him after the death of Liz, which made her feel that life was too short, wanting to live her life to the fullest with him. During the growing love between the two, Bonnie managed to escaped the Prison World and give Damon the cure which Damon planned to get before.


As time went by, he still hadn't told Elena about the cure and started to question his future together with Elena. Eventually, his mother who was revealed to still be alive and was stuck in a prison world, stole the cure from Damon and put it in a place that Elena would find it. Damon and Elena talked about why he hid the cure from her because he didn't want to lose her and eventually chose to take the cure with her. Elena not wanting Damon to decide so quickly and resent her one day, knowing how much he loves being a vampire, asks for Stefan's help, to show Damon a brutal human life with Elena.


After watching an elderly couple, Damon made his final decision to take the cure. He would give up his vampire status to marry Elena and be the father or their children. As soon as Alaric and Jo's wedding took place, Kai killed Jo and attacked everyone, putting Elena into a coma. Kai revealed that he linked Elena and Bonnie together. As long as Bonnie lives, Elena won't wake from her sleep; so until Bonnie dies, Elena will wake. Damon made the selfless choice of saving Bonnie's life, making Elena proud of him. They shared their final moments together with a dance and a kiss. Damon will wait for Elena until the day she wakes.



"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."
—Damon to Elena


Damon first met Elena the night her parents died. She met Damon in the middle of the road, and at first, he mistook her for Katherine. They started talking and even flirted a little. He told her that she wanted a love that consumed her, a love that was passionate, and a love that was a little dangerous. And then he told her that he wanted her to have everything she wanted.


After their moonlit conversation, Elena's parents had arrived and Damon compelled her to forget it ever happened. They were later reunited in The Night of the Comet, but she didn't remember him. This also explains the reason how Damon knew who Elena was when they met in the Salvatore Boarding House. Elena admitted in The Departed, that if she had met Damon first, things might have gone different between them and she would have chosen him over Stefan. This memory resurfaces after Elena transitioned into a vampire in Growing Pains.


In the Pilot, Damon spies on Elena by controlling a crow and a fog when she is writing in her diary at the cemetery. Damon met Elena at the Salvatore Boarding House when she was looking for Stefan, his brother. He purposely told her about Katherine Pierce, an old flame of Stefan and himself, though he didn't mention her name. He wanted Elena to think Stefan was still heartbroken and on the rebound from the last girlfriend he had, which was Katherine.


The relationship between cured vampire/human Damon Salvatore and cured vampire/witch doppelgänger Katherine Pierce has been complicated since their meeting in 1864, when Katherine stayed in their estate and Damon was serving in the Confederate army.


Damon fell deeply in love with Katherine, but unbeknownst to him, she'd also been seeing his brother Stefan, sparking the brothers' lifelong rivalry.


Their relationship ended when the town began eradicating the vampires. She was then taken away, and Damon and Stefan were shot by their own father while in an attempt to save her, causing the latters' turning into vampires.


Damon since then, has spent the following 145 years obsessed with freeing her from her tomb, only to find out that she was never in it in the first place.


Katherine returns to his life in The Return. Damon initially acts flippant towards her, however she seduces him before telling him that she never loved him. Throughout the following seasons, Damon's feelings for Katherine have dwindled while Katherine still attempts to seduce him from time to time.


It is later revealed that Katherine had in fact loved him and his brother, but would ultimately choose her own safety over them. Damon continued to resent her until Stefan expelled her soul from Elena's body.



Elena Gilbert was born on June 22, 1992 in Mystic Falls, Virginia, to John Gilbert and Isobel Flemming, who fled town a few days after giving birth.


John Gilbert's brother, Grayson and his wife Miranda Gilbert, who desperately wanted to have children, but were having difficulties conceiving, adopted the abandoned baby girl. Because Grayson was a doctor, he was able to tamper with the birth records, making himself and Miranda appear as Elena's biological parents on her birth certificate.


If anyone ever became suspicious, Grayson and Miranda had the birth certificate for documentation proof. Elena later learned that she was a descendant of Katherine Pierce, the vampire that caused the feud between Damon and Stefan Salvatore back in 1864 and turned both brothers into vampires before faking her own death.


During her sophomore year, Elena was dating Matt Donovan, her oldest friend with whom she had formerly shared a crib with as children. At a bonfire, the two of them got into an argument where, afterwards, she called her parents to pick her up. While waiting to be picked up, she met Damon Salvatore, who confused her with Katherine, not yet aware of doppelgängers.


She told him, "I don't know what I want," she said."That's not true. You want what everybody wants," He answered. "You want a love that consumes you. You want passion, and adventure, and even a little danger." After talking to her, Damon told her that he wanted her to get everything she wanted in life, but compelled her to forget their meeting, because he didn't want anyone to know he was in town yet.


Elena's parents arrived to take her home in their car, and she then had no recollection of meeting him. They were later reunited but she didn't remember him.


After leaving the bonfire with her parents, their car unexpectedly drove off of Wickery Bridge. Elena somehow miraculously ended up in the hospital, alive, but her parents were not so lucky, had died. It was later revealed that Stefan Salvatore arrived at the scene during one of his visits to his nephew, Zach and, after hearing the car crash into the river, he dove into the water and swam to the car.


He tried to save Grayson, who was still conscious, but he gestured to Elena to indicate that he wanted her to be saved first. Stefan therefore took Elena to safety and she survived the accident, but unfortunately, her adoptive parents died before Stefan could save them too.


It was later revealed that John, her supposed uncle, was actually her biological father due to a relationship with Isobel during their teenage years.


Elena awakens on the morning after the accident to find out that she has become the thing she dreaded the most has come true- she died with Damon's blood that Dr. Meredith Fell had injected in her system. And she must go through a terrible transition to become a vampire or face certain death. Stefan promises her that he and Bonnie will exhaust every possible way out of the situation, but Damon is furious with his brother for letting her die in the first place.


Damon also tells her that there is no way out of it, "You feed or you die, there is no door number three." Later Elena is checking her mouth for fangs and Jeremy walks in and Elena runs over and they start talking and Elena is constantly looking at a lamp that is making a weird noise; once Jeremy left, she goes over and clutches the bulb and smashes it.


After Stefan makes her a sandwich she can't eat it, Stefan tells her he should have saved her first instead of Matt, but Elena tells him if he did, then Matt would be dead and she couldn't handle that. When Stefan mentions her finishing the transition she tells him they'll cross that bridge when they come to it.


Her statement makes her laugh uncontrollably as she slowly starts to cry too. She goes back upstairs and sees Damon, but realizes she's remembering the scene from Rose, where Damon tells her he loves her and compelled her to forget. After hearing noises downstairs she finds Stefan surrounded by deputies and Pastor.


They take them to Pastor's house, after Pastor tells her about his and the council's plan, she starts to leave the house when Pastor thinks she's one of them.


Physically, Elena is a very beautiful young woman with an oval face, light olive complexion, almond-shaped brown eyes which are sometimes mistaken as doe-eyes, and smooth, long, straight dark brown hair. Her height is about 5'5" to 5'6" and she has a slim, slightly athletic physique. Elena has an uncanny physical resemblance to her ancestor and her doppelgänger, Katherine Pierce, who often poses as Elena in order to trick others, mainly Stefan and Damon.


However, even though Elena and Katherine look exactly the same in terms of physical appearance as a result of being Petrova doppelgängers, there are some slight differences between the two girls in terms of fashion and style, and especially personality. Elena physically resembles the original Petrova Doppelgänger, Tatia, who is Katherine's doppelgänger.


Damon Salvatore is Elena's new boyfriend, best friend and Stefan's impulsive elder brother. As time, they fell in love with each other. Damon is a 170 year old immortal who is described as seductive, cocky, acts arrogant, impulsive, dangerous, and charming. Elena first met Damon when he was in Mystic Falls looking for his object of obsession for over a century, Katherine Pierce.


He then talked to Elena but afterwards, compelled her to forget their meeting. Elena then met Damon again at the Salvatore Boarding House when she went to look for Stefan. After a while, she started to view Damon as self-centered, violent, sociopathic and cruel, especially when she found out that he continuously abused and used her close friend, Caroline Forbes against her will.


She was horrified to discover that Damon was also behind all of the murders and unusual "animal" attacks in Mystic Falls.


Originally, Damon disliked Elena and was rather apathetic about whether Elena lived or died. Damon was drawn to Elena, mostly due to the fact that Elena bears an uncanny resemblance to the object of his obsession for over a century, Katherine. Although Damon and Elena often bicker and don't get along, Elena began to slowly warm up to him as she got to know him, befriending him in the process.


But she still kept her distance due to Damon's constant immoral and impulsive behavior. Damon and Elena's friendship deepens with time and the two become closer, Damon fallen for Elena and Elena developing feelings for Damon.


Damon once told Elena that he loved her, but that he didn't deserve her, but Stefan does. He then compelled her to forget his confession afterwards. As opposed to Stefan, Damon is seen to be extremely selfish when it comes to Elena, willing to put the life of Elena's before anyone else's, including Elena's loved ones. But he has grown and changed, protecting Elena, her family, and friends.


It has been a consistency throughout that Elena cares deeply about Damon and has some feelings for him. But now Elena and Damon are closer than ever, and the sexual tension between them has even increased as Elena's emotions were heightened. Stefan ended his relationship with Elena because of her no longer fighting the feelings she has for Damon.


Elena admitted to Damon that he was the reason for her breakup with Stefan and with Jeremy trying to kill her, Elena was forced to move into the boarding house with Damon. Stefan moved out when she moved in because of the awkward situation and relationship between her and Damon. Damon and Elena also made love for the first time and became a real couple the night she moved in with him.


Damon has never, not once, given any indication that Elena would “lose” him, under any circumstances really. Quite the opposite, he promised never to leave her again. The passion they share is hard to define. Damon once again had the opportunity to prove his worth and show Elena his humanity. She brings out the good side of him — that he doesn’t have to kill for fun and drink blood from innocent people. This humanity makes it only harder for Elena to hide her true feelings for Damon.


She cares very much about him. Throughout their time together she maintains a rocky relationship with him but they manage to overcome anything. She confessed her love for him after the sire bond was broken.



Rebekah Mikaelson is the female Original Vampire who was a recurring character of the third and fourth seasons of The Vampire Diaries and the female lead of the The Originals. She is the only daughter of Mikael and Esther, and has one maternal half-brother, Niklaus Mikaelson, and five brothers; a deceased unnamed older brother, Finn Mikaelson, Elijah Mikaelson, Kol Mikaelson and Henrik Mikaelson. However, only Klaus and Elijah, along with Finn, who is currently possessing a warlock named Vincent, are her only living siblings. She is also the aunt of Hope Mikaelson.


Throughout the series, her character’s actions and personality are mostly influenced by her love-and-hate relationship with her half-brother, as well as by her desire to live a normal life, that is, in her own words, one with a "home, a family, and someone to love her". She has also been the love interest of many of the male characters at different times in the two series’ universe. However, her most important relationship is arguably the one she had with Damon Salvatore.


Rebekah is the only daughter of Mikael and Esther, wealthy land owners from Eastern Europe in the 10th century. She is the sixth of seven siblings : Finn, Elijah, Niklaus, Kol, Henrik and an unknown older brother who died while the couple still lived in the Old World. They then move to the New World.


Later, Rebekah and Klaus are shown to be packing and moving elsewhere. Klaus tells Rebekah to hurry up, but she says that she is not going anywhere without Stefan. Klaus tells her to let Stefan go, but Rebekah refuses, intent on staying with him. Klaus forces her to choose between him and Stefan, and as she opted for the latter, he neutralizes her with the White Oak Ash Dagger. This is the only weapon that can be used to neutralize an Original Vampire like Klaus and herself. Rebekah remained neutralized for 90 years and was stored in a coffin which was carried around with Klaus wherever he went. The coffins also contained her other brothers, Finn and Kol.


After Gloria revealed to Klaus that Rebekah had what she needed to contact The Original Witch, Klaus reluctantly resurrected his sister. While she is resurrecting, Klaus compelled a guard to let her feed from the guard and also told the guard to tell her where to meet Stefan and Klaus. After rising from the dead, Rebekah is delighted to see Stefan again, but is furious after she is unable to find her necklace. She was appalled by modern music and fashion. Gloria uses Rebekah to find the amulet and after doing so, threatens to kill the girl with her necklace and her friends.


As Stefan is about to open Elijah's coffin, Rebekah walks in. He tells her he remembers they were running from someone and inquires about it. Rebekah tells Stefan that she can't talk about it, and instead pulls Stefan into a long kiss. Rebekah then asks afterwards if he'll love another girl the same way he loved Elena. Stefan says he hopes to and tries to kiss Rebekah again, but she stops him, saying his kiss gave him away. Klaus appears, and Rebekah reports that Stefan is not on their side, as he's asking about Mikael. Once they're back in Mystic Falls, Rebekah informs Stefan that Klaus knows that the doppelgänger is still alive, when she is meant to be dead, and that he won't be merciful. Stefan attacks her, but being an original vampire, Rebekah overpowers him and "out of jealousy" stabs him. She later meets Caroline and Tyler at Mystic Falls High School, knocks out Caroline and takes Tyler to Klaus.


After Klaus feeds Tyler his blood and kills him, Rebekah drags Tyler back to Caroline and stays to watch over them. As Rebekah sat there bored as ever, she goes through Caroline's phone, only to find a picture of Stefan and Elena together, and spots her mother necklace around Elena's neck. Rebekah is furious and storms into the gym to inform her brother about the necklace's whereabouts. She threatens Elena and asks about the necklace's location, but Elena explains that she doesn't have it anymore because Katherine had stolen it from her. After Klaus figured out how to successfully create hybrids, and having Elena "donate" blood, he and Rebekah are at the hospital's parking lot.


She questions how he knew that he needed the doppelgänger alive, and he reveals to her, "You know the original witch hated me. Do you honestly think I would do anything other than the opposite of what she says?" He further explains, "The doppelgänger needed to die in order for me to become a hybrid. But if she was dead...". Rebekah chimes in, "Then you couldn't use her blood to sire yourself a new species". And he adds, "Leaving me alone for all time."


Rebekah is disappointed in his reasoning behind the creation of his own species, just so he would never be alone. Klaus changes the subject, sending her away to fetch the truck. While she's gone, Damon comes to inform Klaus that Mikael is on his way to Mystic Falls to finish him off, causing the hybrid to run off, leaving Rebekah behind. In Smells Like Teen Spirit, Rebekah forces herself into the Salvatore Boarding House, and enrolls into Mystic Falls High School, ostensibly to keep an eye on Tyler, whom she's been supplying with blood bags. Rebekah also joins the cheerleading squad and openly tells Caroline that she may be interested in her boyfriend and many other "things" of hers, practically declaring her war.


The same night, she attends the traditional bonfire, where Damon Salvatore tries to distract her (so Alaric and Elena can get Stefan off the track) with his charms and marshmallows, but Rebekah sees through him, and stabs him. She later shows up at Tyler's house with a girl, teasingly biting her, and tells him that Klaus would want his hybrid to get the full vampire experience; at the mention of her brother, Tyler needs no more convincing, and begins to feed on the girl.


After promising that she will kill the Doppelgänger, Rebekah goes after Elena in Dangerous Liaisons. Rebekah reproaches to Elena that she daggered her and wants to bite her. Elijah shows up and stops Rebekah before she could have killed Elena. Arriving home, Rebekah is threatened by Klaus because of her intention. Kol protects Rebekah from Klaus. Leaving the Mikaelson's Mansion, Rebekah goes to grill where she meets Elena and Caroline. She goes there to invite Matt at the ball.


When the party starts, Rebekah plans out with Kol to murder Matt to make Elena suffer. Because she feels something for him, Rebekah changes her mind and tells Kol she won't hurt innocent people. After Esther's speech, Rebekah drinks the champagne laced with Elena's blood and so, she becomes linked with her siblings. Kol didn't give up on killing Matt, so he wanted to make it without Rebekah. The boy is saved by Damon who hurts Kol. This event is seen by all members of the Original Family including Rebekah. Rebekah then meets Damon and hooks up with him after being upset that she disappointed Matt.


The next morning (All My Children), we see Rebekah waking up next to Damon in his bed. When she was about to leave, she and Damon meet Elena at the door of the Salvatore house. She greets her with a sarcastic smile. Arriving home, she is teased by Klaus and Kol ,(her brother), who calls her a strumpet. When her brothers leave for Mystic grill on search for some fun, she throws a shoe at them for their remarks. When they are gone, we see her having a chat with Elijah, who is worried about their mothers behavior.


At the Wickery Bridge Foundation, Rebekah meets with Sage and Damon there. Sage suggests to Damon that they could discover what Rebekah was planning if he seduced her. Damon complies with Sage and attempts to coerce Rebekah into lowering her guard so Sage can get into her mind and see her thoughts.


Damon and Rebekah sleep together and while Rebekah is sleeping Sage enters her mind to discover that Rebekah is searching for the remnant of the White Oak Tree. Sage also manages to get into Damon's head and discovers that Damon had been planning to kill all the Originals including her true love Finn.


So she betrays Damon and warns Rebekah about Damon's plans to kill her and her family. Rebekah then strips the White Oak Wood from the Wickery Bridge and destroys it. After getting Finn back in town, Rebekah seeks revenge against Damon who she truly believed had liked her and she breaks into his home.


Rebekah easily knocks Alaric out and attacks Damon. She then kidnaps Damon and takes him to Klaus' Family Mansion so she can torture him and drain the vervain out of his system so that he could be compelled.


Shortly after organizing the 20's decade dance, Damon distracts her so she can not know Tyler returned. She then begins to like having a guy around, but her happiness is short lived as Esther comes back to town. They talk and after a brief discussion Esther seemingly falls down and appears to be dead. In the end of the episode, it is revealed that Esther possessed Rebekah's body in order to kill the Originals.


After that night, Rebekah appears at the storage warehouse to find Damon, who has apparently called her there. Once she arrives, Damon tells her to be quiet and to help him move Klaus' body. Alaric then comes in and fights Rebekah, tosses her aside, and stakes Klaus. Rebekah then screams in horror as Damon holds her back, and tells her to run. Later, Rebekah meets up with Elijah and tells him Klaus is dead.


They console each other for their loss. Rebekah is then informed by Elijah that Tyler Lockwood died, but the other vampires sired by Klaus somehow survived. Both siblings assure each other that they, as well as Kol, were not responsible for siring Stefan and Damon's bloodline. Both ponder how they can still be alive. Following this revelation. She calls Stefan and congratulates him for still being alive. She informs Stefan that Elijah spoke to Elena, and that she and Matt would be returning to town soon.


At the beginning of the series Bonnie Bennett is an upbeat and positive person. However, as the series goes on and Bonnie begins to suffer the losses of people close to her (Most notably her Grams and Jeremy), she begins to become a much more serious person. Throughout the series, Bonnie remains a strong person who is loyal to her friends even through all of the challenges they have faced.


While Bonnie has become friends with Stefan, she remains cordial with his brother, Damon despite Damon's actions that have affected deeply including turning her mother into a vampire. Bonnie's most defining trait, as well as her greatest weakness, is her loyalty to her friends.



Bonnie Sheila Bennett was a heroine and one of the main female characters, and until recently, the Anchor to The Other Side on The Vampire Diaries.
While she fills the role of counselor and confidante, Bonnie was also the brassy-but- cautious witch, who discovered her powers just in time to help out her family and friends.


She is best friends with Caroline Forbes, Elena Gilbert, and Damon Salvatore who was once her boyfriend. She attended Mystic Falls High School. She now attends Whitmore College with Caroline and Elena. Bonnie is noted for having many heroine tendencies, including repeatedly being ready to sacrifice herself for her friends. As her powers have increased, Bonnie stepped up at every opportunity to trade her life for those of her friends.


Luckily, when Bonnie was alive and well, her spell-casting abilities most definitely came in handy when the Originals came to Mystic Falls. Since gaining the power of Expression later on in the series, Bonnie had become one of the most powerful characters in the series: she was able to take down two members of the Original family with ease.


Bonnie attempted to use spirit, Expression, and dark magic all at once to bring Jeremy back from the dead. Her Grams warned her that no magic was strong enough to challenge the will of Nature, but Bonnie refused to listen. It was too much for her therefore killing her in the process.


Qetsiyah transferred the status of Anchor to the Other Side fromAmara to Bonnie, allowing her to exist on both sides of the living and the dead. However, Bonnie is now forced to feel the pain of every supernatural death, and no longer has access to the powerful magic she once had.


After Markos violently tore his way out of The Other Side with the help of the Travelers, it began falling apart as his unnatural resurrection dis-balanced it. The blood of the doppelgangers used in the spell also reversed magic that was holding the Other Side together, which then began imploding on itself. This threatened Bonnie with permanent death seeing as she was The Anchor.


Despite great effort on both her and her friend's part to save the Other Side, it finally destroyed itself completely, and with it, Bonnie, together with Damon, also died the same day. Both of them were the last people left on the Other Side as it fell down around them. Bonnie spent her last moments with him and finally, their deaths were marked by a white light that surrounded them.


Bonnie was born on February 15 1992, to Rudy Hopkins and Abby Bennett in Mystic Falls, Virginia. Her mother abandoned her, after taking down the Original Vampire Mikael and losing all of her powers, in order to protect her best friend Miranda Sommers-Gilbert's adoptive daughter Elena, who is the doppelgänger needed to break Klaus' Hybrid curse. Even though it isn't implied, it appears that her father gave her Abby's maiden name "Bennett", although for unknown reasons. Bonnie befriended Caroline Forbes and Elena during her childhood.


Her grandmother Sheila Bennett, at one point tried to explain to Bonnie about her witch heritage, although Bonnie dismissed this because she thought that her grandmother was drunk and before the beginning of the series, she tried to explain to Bonnie about her witch heritage again (even though


In Pilot, as Bonnie Bennett began her junior year at Mystic Falls High School, she, along with every other girl in school, fell under the charm of Stefan Salvatore; a new, handsome and mysterious student at school.

Damon tries to pull it off her neck, but the necklace burns his hand. Bonnie runs away and comes home as soon as possible. And tells Sheila everything. Sheila says that the necklace belonged to one of the most powerful witches in their family, and she shows Bonnie an old picture of a woman who is also wearing same the necklace: Emily Bennett. And also it is revealed that she is Bonnie's great-great-great-great-grandmother.


In 162 Candles, Bonnie decides to pack up at her grandmother's and go home. Knowing that her father doesn't like her to be gone for long. Bonnie tries to give her grandmother, Sheila the necklace back but she says no and that it belongs to Bonnie. It is a talisman that has been passed down from generation to generation and it has found its way back to Bonnie. Bonnie decides her grandmother is right and leaves the necklace on, but just wishes it was a little bit prettier. Bonnie pays an early visit to Elena in her room.


She apologizes to Elena for being an absentee friend these past few days. Feeling that she can trust Elena, Bonnie swears her to secrecy and shows some of the things her grandmother taught her. She rips open her feather pillow to Elena's surprise and proceeds to make the feathers fly up into the air. Elena is shocked but happy that Bonnie shared this with her. Back at the Mystic Grill, Caroline spots Bonnie and asks her about the necklace. Bonnie refuses to give it back. When Caroline reaches out to grab the necklace, she gets a shock from the necklace.

She senses that her relative “Emily” keeps trying to tell her something and feels that the necklace has a lot to do with it. Later, at school once again and without luck again, Damon confronts Bonnie about the necklace. She still refuses to hand it over to him.


He tells her that he would not hurt her and in fact, he can help her get rid ofEmily. Damon tells Bonnie that the next time she sees Emily, to tell her “a deals a deal”.

Pulling off the road suddenly, Bonnie gets out and throws the necklace far into a deserted field.Elena is shocked but knows that it will make Bonnie feel more relieved.Elenainvites Caroline and Bonnie to dinner so that they can try and be friends again. When Bonnie arrives, she tells Caroline that the “necklace” drama is all over and that she threw it in a field.


They decide to do manicures and Caroline goes into Bonnie's bag to get the kit out. Seeing the necklace in the bag, Caroline calls her a liar. Bonnietries to convince her that she was telling the truth and that the necklace shouldn't be in there. Realizing that she over reacted, Caroline apologized to Bonnie. Suddenly, Caroline has the idea to have a séance to see what “Emily” wants from Bonnie. During the séance, the threesome start to get scared when a breeze blows through and the candles begin to flicker. The candles begin to flicker some more and Bonnie decides it's enough. She throws the The Bennett Talismandown by the candles.

Bonnie enters the bathroom and suddenly the door shuts after her. Caroline and Elena rush over to help her but they can't seem to open the door. Finally after a struggle, the door opens and Bonnie appears calm and slightly different.


Telling them she's fine, Bonnie walks away towards the door. Passing by the mirror, the reflection is not that of Bonnie but of Emily instead. Fearing for Bonnie, Elena yells for Bonnie not to leave. Noticing that Bonnie doesn't even hear her, Elena calls out “Emily” and immediately Bonnie stops. Bonnie/Emily tells Elena that she is going to destroy the necklace and that Damon will never get it back. Having had enough drama, Caroline decides to head on home.



Smallville: Thirst – review (TV Episode) Director: Paul Shapiro First aired: 2005. I must admit that I don’t watch Smallville – indeed this is the only episode I have ever watched. Why? Whilst, intrinsically, there was nothing wrong with this, I just have never been a huge fan of the Superman franchise and this series is, essentially, a Superman prequel – college boy Superman. Of course, I am well aware of the main movers and shakers in Superman – so the concept of Clark Kent (Tom Welling), Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) and the effects of kryptonite are familiar. Plus this is a vampire episode, I had to watch that.


The episode itself is essentially the story reported by Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) as she tries to get internship at the Daily Planet – having been rejected and offered the chance to produce a story to be re-evaluated by editor-in-chief Pauline Kahn (Carrie Fisher). There is a side story concerning Lex Luther and Professor Milton Fine (James Marsters) – obviously the characters’ conflict meant little in isolation but, unusually, the sub-story fitted neatly into and complimented the main plot.


As a prelude we see a pizza delivery to the Tri Psi Sorority and the door is answered by three young ladies in bikinis. They get the delivery guy to head to a Jacuzzi with them and, when he suggests that he has to get going, develop fangs and bite him. Sorority vampire chicks… oh my! Incidentally the sorority president is called Buffy Sanders (Brooke Nevin) – Chloe explains that the names have been changed in her story and this is obviously a nod towards the Buffy TV show. Anyway Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk), Clark’s girlfriend, has been accepted into Metropolis University – a different college to Clark, and is going as they do the courses she wants. The only problem is that they don’t have any dorms left and so she is going to try for a sorority. In this case the Tri Psi Sorority. As you can guess she is successful and her initiation involves a passing of blood through a kiss – she seems to respond to the blood immediately.


The next day Chloe, who is having roommate hassle, discovers Lana in her dorm. She reacts badly to bright light but Chloe assumes she is suffering from a hangover. Clark shows up and Lana is acting strangely. She gets his scent and is suddenly aggressively seductive. When Clark doesn’t respond in a similar way (being in touch with emotions and all that) she suggests it is time to reassess their relationship.Chloe is investigating the sorority, as well as googling vampires for some reason that seems like a leap of faith given that in her last scene she was oblivious to the signs. She telephones Clark and says something is wrong, in a flash he is there (Chloe, evidentially, knows about his powers). They decide to investigate the sorority at a Halloween party – cue Clark in a Zorro outfit deciding that the cape is kind of cool.


Unfortunately, to look at the lore, I will have to spoil the whole episode. Clark finds a clipping in Buffy’s room regarding survivors of a bat attack. Lana, meanwhile, has put the bite on Chloe. Clark rescues her and takes her to hospital. She is not responding to transfusions due to a rabies like virus that is attacking her red blood cells. Professor Fine comes in and suggests that Clark confronts Lex about project 1138.


Clark does so and, on hearing that Lana is infected, Lex spills the beans. A group of high school kids were stuck in a cave. The area around the cave had previously been struck by meteors and the radiation had got into the water table, forming into stalactites and infecting the (vampire) bats. Buffy was infected by the bats then rescued by Luther-Corp. The infection gave a cannibalistic thirst for blood, light sensitivity, caused the development of fangs and increased strength (we elsewhere discover it gave immortality and quick healing also). The infection seems to be kryptonite related as a stalactite effects Clark adversely. Luthor-Corp has a cure.


Once the information is divulged Lana gets into the room, she is specifically hunting Clark, as per Buffy’s orders. He manages to grab a syringe full of anti-virus but is bitten by Lana. His special blood invokes further powers in her. She looks in the mirror, disgusted by herself and her actions. In her disgust she shoots fireballs from her eyes, destroying said mirror. Of course, you know that Buffy will die (in a fireball), Clark will cure Lana and all will return to normality.


Obviously I found the idea of injecting the cure into the heart, which was synonymous with the stake in the heart, rather interesting and quite clever. The use of Bela Lugosi is Dead by Bauhaus on the soundtrack was an obvious referential moment. I did wonder at the strength of fangs that could penetrate super-skin – but perhaps Clark’s full powers have not developed and as a casual observer I’ll never know. The episode worked in a glossy teen way. The cause of the vampirism worked within the confines of the Superman franchise. I don’t think it inspired me to watch the series, but as a vampire episode it wasn’t bad – which is, of course, how this will be scored.


Thirst: Series Episode 93: Writer Steven S. DeKnight Director Paul Shapiro Broadcast Date October 27, 2005 Production Code 2T6405 Navigation Summary: Lana decides to enroll at Metropolis University at the last minute and is forced to join a sorority to find housing at such a late date. However, the house leader Buffy Sanders and her new sorority sisters offer her more than a place to crash after they turn her into a vampire and instruct her to kill Clark. Chloe applies for an internship at the Daily Planet, but the newspaper's formidable editor may be more than she can handle. Milton Fine finally reveals his evil side and superhuman powers when he kills Lex's bodyguard.


Chloe interviews for a job at the Daily Planet. Chloe is at the Daily Planet headquarters in Metropolis interviewing for a job with the new editor-in-chief, Pauline Kahn. Ms. Kahn is unimpressed with the column Chloe wrote in high school and tells her that Lionel's arm-twisting is the only reason she ever got the opportunity. She dismisses Chloe, but Chloe tells her that she doesn't expect special treatment and is willing to work her way up to the top. Pauline Kahn tells her that she will consider hiring her if she produces a good story. Switch to Chloe's narration as she continues to work on her report on the Tri-Psi sorority. At their sorority house, a pizza boy arrives and the girls invite him into the hot tub. During the make-out session, the girls suddenly start biting him, he begins to scream and the water turns blood red.


Clark goes to visit Lana at her theater and then steps into her apartment to find her packing. She tells him that she's applied for late acceptance to Met U, but there is no longer any housing available, so she is considering a sorority. Clark is disappointed and suggests her go to CKU with him, but she assures him that nothing will change between them.


Lex asks Fine about his research. Clark is in Professor Milton Fine's history course. After the lecture, Professor Fine is approached by Lex Luthor. Lex accuses him of researching certain LuthorCorp projects that have yet to gain public knowledge. He asks him if Clark Kent is providing the information, but Fine denies Clark's involvement. Lex reminds Fine that he has great influence in the CKU review board.


The Tri-Psi sorority head, Buffy Sanders introduces her group as the prettiest and most exclusive sorority. Lana is one of the pledges and is surprised to find out that she is the only one that has been picked to join. They tell her that there is one more initiation ritual, and it is revealed that the entire sorority are vampires. They bite Lana and she becomes part of the sisterhood. Fine goes to the Mansion and tells Lex that he doesn't have to investigate his past, because he will provide him with anything he wants to know. He gives Lex a file on himself and tells Lex that he knows he is using funding from the University to conduct LuthorCorp experiments. Lex seems to back off, but when Fine leaves, Lex sends a guard to follow him.


Clark notices Lana's odd behavior after joining the sorority. Chloe's roommate Karen is dismantling her mini version of the Wall of Weird when she arrives home. She is angry about the wall, and even angrier that Lana Lang is asleep in Chloe's bed. Karen storms away and Chloe tries to revive Lana. She is groggy and lethargic, and Chloe thinks she is hungover from the pledge party. Clark arrives and Chloe leaves her in his care. He asks if she's feeling ok and she says she's fine and starts making out with him. Clark is surprised and confused by her aggressive advances and she gets annoyed by his reluctance and leaves. The guard finds Professor Fine at Warehouse 15. When he approaches and says he shouldn't be touching what isn't his, but Fine claims otherwise. He extends a metal projectile from his hand, kills the guard, and goes back to examining the Black Ship.


Clark and Chloe investigate the sorority. Chloe's investigation continues and she reports that Lana and her new friends have fun throwing each other off the house's balcony and getting drunk. Clark is worried about Lana's strange behavior and Chloe tells him that she's been investigating the sorority and has uncovered some strange details. None of the sisters ever leave the sorority, and it is the most exclusive one on campus. She makes a plan to infiltrate their Halloween party and brings Clark along. They split up to locate Lana. Clark ducks into a bedroom where Buffy catches him rummaging. She orders him to leave, but she is distracted by someone at her door. When she turns back to Clark, he is gone.


Fine tells Clark to ask Lex how to cure Chloe. Chloe finds Lana dancing and making out with other boys and pulls her to the side. She asks her about how she's been acting and Lana bites her. Chloe calls Clark for help and he uses his super-hearing to find her. He arrives to catch Chloe just as she passes out, astonished to see Lana standing over her with a mouth full of bloody, pointed teeth. Clark takes Chloe to the hospital where the doctor reports that she has a rare strain of the rabies virus which is preventing her red blood cells from regenerating.


They can treat her but they don't know the cure. Professor Fine arrives at the hospital, claiming to be visiting a sick colleague. He asks about Chloe's condition and Clark admits that he thinks she was attacked by a vampire. Fine looks at Chloe's chart and tells him to ask Lex about Project 1138. Back at the Tri-Psi sorority, the other girls are mad at Lana for leaving a victim alive. They tell her that Clark was snooping around and she has to clean up her mess by bringing him back so they can finish him off, or Lana will be the one they feed off instead. Lana feeds off of Clark.


Clark goes to the Luthor Mansion and demands that Lex tell him about the Project. Lex leads Clark into the library carrying a metal briefcase. He explains that six years ago, Buffy Sanders was trapped outside Smallville in a cave but was rescued by LuthorCorp. The cave was found to contain meteor rock-infected stalactites that had mutated the vampire bats living there. A LuthorCorp worker was also bitten and developed vampire-like symptoms like strength, fangs, and light sensitivity, but they were able to cure him. He opens the case to reveal vials of the serum, kept active by a large fragment of meteor rock. Clark starts to feel ill and backs away just as an overhead window breaks. Lana appears and jumps to the floor. She knocks Lex out and attacks Clark.


Clark is weakened by the kryptonite and Lana bites him. After sucking his blood, she is able to shoot heat from her eyes. Clark is able to grab one of the syringes with the antidote in it before Lana takes him back to the sorority house. The girls lay him on the hearth of the fireplace and prepare to feed on him. Lana doesn't want to kill him and suggests they just turn him into a vampire as well. The girls explain there is no room for him in a sorority. Buffy doesn't care what Lana wants and when Lana stands in her way, she knocks her to the floor. Buffy then tries to kill Lana, but she uses her heat vision to vaporize Buffy and the other vampires run away in fear. Lana prepares to turn Clark into a vampire but he is able to stab her heart with the antidote and restore her to normal.


Lana tells Clark that she doesn't remember much. Clark and Lana are walking along campus when he tentatively asks how much she remembered. She admits that it's all a little fuzzy, but she remembers biting him and says she felt his love for her and his strength. She says she misses being with him. Clark goes to the Luthor Mansion to thank Lex for saving the girls' lives. Lex gets Clark to admit that Professor Fine is the one who told him about Project 1138 and tells him that Fine is obtaining highly classified documents. He warns Clark to stay away from Fine.


Chloe gets a job at the Daily Planet. Chloe's report concludes with the knowledge that all the girls were cured, including herself. Her roommate transferred, so Lana was able to move in with her. She gives the article to Pauline Kahn, but Kahn claims that they don't print tabloid stories. Chloe counters with the research she did for the article including interviews, CDC reports, and eyewitness accounts. Kahn changes her mind, says that Chloe has potential, and agrees to hire her. Chloe is thrilled to start her dream career in the basement of the Daily Planet.


Lust for a Vampire (1970) Directed by Jimmy Sangster Production Company Hammer Film Productions Produced by Harry Fine and Michael Style Screenplay by Tudor Gates Cinematography David Muir Based on characters created by Sheridan Le Fanu Cast: Ralph Bates (Giles Barton); Barbara Jefford (Countess Herritzen); Suzanna Leigh (Janet Playfair); Michael Johnson (Richard Lestrange); Yutte Stensgaard (Mircalla)


A newly resurrected female vampire and her undead family prey on the staff and pupils of an Austrian finishing school.


Jimmy Sangster's Lust For A Vampire is the second part of the 'Karnstein Trilogy', three films very loosely based on J. Sheridan Le Fanu's novel Carmilla (1872). Preceded by The Vampire Lovers (d. Roy Ward Baker, 1970) and followed by Twins of Evil (d. John Hough, 1971), this film deals, in a crude but very English way, with the idea of the vampire as sexual predator.


In response to a more relaxed approach from the British Board of Film Censors, and the influence of European titles like Et Mourir de Plaisir (France, d. Roger Vadim, 1960) and Le Viol du Vampire (France, d. Jean Rollin, 1967), the Karnstein films marked a new direction for the Hammer vampire. Whereas the female vampire had played only a marginal role in many of the Dracula films, Carmilla (or Mircalla) Karnstein is the focus of Lust for a Vampire.


The trilogy also introduced a far more explicit approach to the sexual nature of the vampire. Dracula's victims were invariably female, and the young woman's ecstatic, breathless expression only hinted at something more than a simple bite. In Lust for A Vampire, Mircalla attacks both males and females and often drains their blood during sex.


Unfortunately, what could have been a bold move in bringing the implicit into the open is compromised by a very immature approach to the material. The hero, Richard Lestrange (Michael Johnson), alternates between behaving like Sid James in a Carry On film, and a parody of a Romantic poet. When Lestrange and Mircalla make love, they are serenaded by a horribly inappropriate pop ballad, which robs the scene of all tension.


Above all, Lust for A Vampire is littered with scenes that exist only for the titillation of the male audience. The young women of the finishing school spend half their time topless or performing classically-inspired exercise routines in skimpy outfits. There is no attempt to explore Mircalla's bisexuality; instead, she is placed in a couple of soft-core sequences with her classmates. Her attacks on men are perfunctory moments, while her female victims are drained in lengthy soft-focus seductions.


A somewhat esteemed colleague, a theater critic who knows me, has suggested that, considering the title, I might find much of what I generally want from a movie in "Lust for a Vampire," which is now playing at the Penthouse Theater and which she has not seen.


Much, but not all. The story of a beautiful vampire and the man who loves her, "Lust for a Vampire" is set in and around a rustic Austrian village nestled snugly in the shadow of its vampire castle. It is the 19th century, a point that the visiting advanced skeptic, Richard (Michael Johnson) never lets anyone forget.


"Mircalla, this is the 19th, not the 18th century," he reminds his favorite student at the local girls' school where he has taken a job (because of the girls). But Mircalla (Yutte Stensgaard) continues to show a woeful ignorance of the last 100 years' literature, and the reason is not far to seek. However, she dresses with the times—Empire, clinging, filmy, very low-cut, high-waisted, terrific—and she is absolutely ravishing. Therefore it is not surprising that Richard falls at Mircalla's feet, where several have fallen before him, and wins the heart of an antique monster whose very life blood was just days before the sacrificial offering of an unwilling local virgin.


It is love, not lust, that Richard makes to Mircalla outside the castle, and it is love that makes her hesitate long enough to take a burning stake in her bosom while she is being exorcised at the end. Richard then seeks rather too convenient refuge in the arms of the school's gym teacher (Suzanna Leigh, also a knockout) and what might have been the fatal passion of the century (19th, that is) settles down into another faculty romance.


Despite many obvious lunacies, "Lust for a Vampire," which was directed by Jimmy Sangster and written by one Tudor Gates, is not unaware of its conventional sources of vitality, the nice tension between desire and decomposition, the bracelet of bright flesh around the bone.


In the early 1970s, the ailing Hammer studios came to the decision that the dwindling popularity of old stalwarts Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee meant that they could no longer be relied upon to pull in a decent audience. The studio needed something new and exciting if it was to recapture the kind of audiences it had enjoyed in the late 1950s and early 1960s, to the over-familiar setting of 17th Century peasant villages overlooked by menacing castles.


Unfortunately, they couldn’t figure out how to insert the aforementioned lady parts in a way that contributed in any meaningful way to the same hoary old plot, so that their inclusion looked both awkward and out of place. Like a pair of curious teenagers terrified of the thing which they both find so fascinating, Hammer edged towards scenes of naked lovemaking and lesbian trysts before scurrying away almost red-faced with shame. They also assumed – wrongly – that the regular presence of bare breasts on the screen meant they no longer had to pay attention to such trivialities as plot or characterisation, meaning that a supposedly daring combination of soft-porn and horror falls horribly flat.


Tudor Gates’ workmanlike screenplay sees holidaying writer Richard Lestrange (Michael Johnson) becoming so infatuated with finishing school pupil Mircalla (Yutte Stensgaard) that he engineers a situation which calls upon Miss Simpson (Helen Christie), the school’s headmistress, to employ him as a temporary teacher to her girls. It’s not long before Richard is making the moves on Mircalla, but what he doesn’t realise is that Mircalla is a vampire descended from the Karnstein family which owns that brooding castle overlooking the village where peasants warn of the dangers of the Karnsteins without really showing any sign of the dread you’d expect with each approaching sundown.


The fact that Lust for a Vampire’s hero is a manipulative low-life who is willing to seduce an innocent schoolgirl in order to satisfy his lust sort of illustrates just how confused Hammer was when the movie was produced. Richard Lestrange really should be the villain of the piece and does nothing even vaguely heroic throughout the movie. It’s true that Mircalla isn’t quite the innocent teenage virgin she appears to be, but he doesn’t know that. But then, how could he even suspect that she’s a vampire when she shows no ill-effects from exposure to sunlight (she does, however, have the traditional aversion to a crucifix)?


Lust for a Vampire is a dull picture with little in the way of a storyline and very few scares. There’s a shadowy figure who looks a bit like Christopher Lee who’s sometimes seen lurking in dark corners, and the occasional buxom serving wench found with fang marks in her neck, and there’s an incredibly cheesy lovemaking scene to a horribly dated song called ‘Strange Love’ which is probably the only thing that makes Lust for a Vampire worth watching.


If all bloodsuckers were like Carmilla Karnstein, the luscious blonde vampette in Lust for a Vampire, we wouldn't have any need for Buffy. Lust for a Vampire has a reputation as a B-grade Hammer film (which is like being a C-grade Hollywood flick), but really it's a wry, energetic, and fun example of the heaving bosom school of old fashioned gothic horror.


Lust for a Vampire doesn't even try to do the former. Almost everyone involved understood that this movie was by definition exploitative and aimed at the cheap thrills crowd. Everyone understood that with the unfortunate exception of the movie's lead actress, Yutte Stensgaard.


Stensgaard was a young Danish actress who was still naive and ambitious enough to believe that she had been hired primarily for her acting abilities and not her more obvious attributes. There is one story of the guileless Stensgaard asking the director what was her character's motivation for getting out of a carriage.


This should have been a better movie, but outside of seeing the delectable Stensgaard in various states of undress, there's not much here. The movie was born under a bad sign. Ingrid Pitt turned down the lead role. The original director quit. And Hammer icon Peter Cushing, who brought several films undeserved gravitas, left production to care for his sick wife.


The story is a rewrite of Hammer's previous Karnstein movies. Mircalla Karnstein (Stensgaard) a vampire immune to daylight, arrives at a Styrian finishing school to enroll as a student. Of course a vampire's gotta do what a vampire's gotta do and before long young girls are dying. Two different male teachers both have the hots for Mircalla.


This is evidently before sexual harassment law was enforced. There is the creepy Giles Barton (Ralph Bates) who is known by his students to sneak around outside their rooms spying on them. Barton knows all about the Karnstein history and aches to serve a real Karnstein. The other male teacher is the dashing Richard Lestrange (Michael Johnson).


The girls generally like this younger, liberal man. Johnson doesn't believe in vampires. Mircalla gives the strong impression that men are not her first choice for love or food but there's something about Richard.


Stensgaard likely did the best she could but her acting abilities were less than her beauty. And even if she had been Meryl Streep she could not have done much with the script. Bates hams it up as he tries to play Renfield to Stensgaard's vampire queen but that makes things worse. And Johnson gives the impression that he wandered in from a Pride and Prejudice outtake. He's just in the wrong film. A subplot with a corrupt greedy headmistress and a female teacher (Suzanna Leigh) who suspects odd events goes nowhere.


Bates once said that Lust for a Vampire was among the worst films ever made and he regretted having anything to do with it. I don't know if I'd say it's quite that bad but that's only because Stensgaard was easy on the eyes.


An honest unbiased appraisal must indicate that this was an unambiguously horrid film. A cheesy pop song was dubbed over a key scene between Stensgaard and Johnson. What should be intense or at least erotic becomes laughable.


The director is accidentally seen on camera near the end. This film should only be watched late night if there's nothing else on or by obsessive completists who want to watch and possess every single Hammer film ever made. The trailer was trying for fear and shock but it just seemed schlocky to me.


Yutte Stensgaard (born 14 May 1946) is a Danish actress born in Thisted, Jutland, Denmark, best known for her starring role in Hammer's Lust for a Vampire (1971).


Born Jytte Stensgaard, she moved to the United Kingdom to improve her English in 1963. She worked as an au pair, studied stenography and became a model for a time. Stensgaard began her acting career in the film La Ragazza con la pistola (The Girl with the Pistol, 1968).


She then played parts in diverse UK TV-series: The Saint (1968; episode: "The Desperate Diplomat"); Broaden Your Mind (1969); Doctor in the House (1969/70) - in which she played the recurring role of Helga, Dave Briddock's girlfriend; On the Buses (1970; episode: "The New Uniforms", as Ingrid, a Swedish tourist); Special Branch (1970; episode:


"Miss International" as Nina Sareth); sci-fi comedy series The Adventures of Don Quick (1970; as Flosshilda); Jason King (1971; as Arlene in the episode "As Easy as A.B.C."); The Persuaders! (1971; playing Bibi, a Judo instructress who assists Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) in the episode "The Morning After"); The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine (1972), and anthology series Dead of Night (1972; as Gertrude Wickett in the episode "Bedtime").


Her film parts include the Bulldog Drummond film Some Girls Do (1969) as Robot One; she played small parts in If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium (1969), Scream and Scream Again (1970) and Doctor In Trouble (1970). She also appeared in the low-budget sci-fi sex comedy Zeta One (1969).


Stensgaard's most famous role is that of the vampire Carmilla/Mircalla in Hammer's Lust for a Vampire (1969). The film was the sequel to The Vampire Lovers (1970), which had starred Ingrid Pitt as Mircalla. The original film was an adaptation of Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. However, Lust for a Vampire shared little with the novel; it only used the vampire characters, and was thus a completely new story. In the film, the bisexual Carmilla infiltrates an all-girl boarding school while falling in love with a novelist.


Stensgaard auditioned for the part of the Doctor Who companion (Jo Grant), alongside third Doctor Jon Pertwee in 1970. Towards the end of her career she appeared in pantomime and the stage-farce Boeing-Boeing (1971). She also appeared on TV as a hostess on the popular game show The Golden Shot hosted by Bob Monkhouse.


Stensgaard has married twice: first to art director Tony Curtis; second to John Kerwin.[1] She left acting in 1972, went to live in the U.S. and had a son called Sten. She became a devoted Christian and for years worked at a radio station (selling ad time for Art Bell - mentioned on an August 15, 1997 programme on vampires), selling air-time and refusing to discuss her acting career.


She was tracked down by a Danish horror fan, Nicolas Barbano, and eventually agreed to an interview (which appeared in Video Watchdog). Soon after, she was guest of honour at a horror convention.


Stensgaard's image continues to grace the covers of numerous book and magazine publications; for instance, Marcus Hearn's book Hammer Glamour (2009), which contains a chapter on her.


A former au pair and model, Jytte Stensgaard emigrated to the UK in 1963, hoping to have a successful international film career. Changing her name to the slightly easier to pronounce "Yutte" Stensgaard she ironically didn't make her debut in a British film, but in the Italian movie The Girl with a Pistol (1968) (Girl with a Pistol) which did have some British backing.


She then went on to appear in various British movies, mainly of the comedy or horror genre, most famously the lead role in Lust for a Vampire (1971), as well as several television guest roles.


She also got a six-month stint hosting a game show with British king of comedy, Bob Monkhouse. After struggling with myopic casting directors, who could not see the beauty and budding talent before them and were happier to just keep casting more established but less beautiful women, Yutte finally gave up and emigrated to the USA in the mid-seventies and took up a job selling air time for a Christian radio station in Oregan.


Understandably reluctant to make appearances at horror conventions when British film publicists finally started to notice her when it was too late, she did relent and start appearing at a select few in the late 1990s, giving the non-fickle amongst her fans a chance to see her unique radiance once more.


An inimitable beauty the likes of which has never been seen since, Yutte Stensgaard was possibly the biggest loss to movies since that of Sharon Tate.



Director/Screenplay – Jon Jacobs, Based on the Short Story by Fritz Leiber, Producers – Michael & Seth Kestenbaum, Photography – Gary Tieche, Music – Paul Inder & Oscar O’Lochlaunn, Underscore – Rich Giovinazzo, Special Effects Supervisor – Barry Anderson, Production Design – Clare Brown. Production Company – Kastenbaum Films/Smoking Gun.


Cast: Christina Fulton (Louise Balfour), Isaac Turner (Carlos), Bret Carr (Bud), Leon Herbert (Johnny), Susan Rhodes (Mandy), Jon Jacobs (Henry)


Plot: Louise Balfour, a woman who hung herself at Miami’s The Tides hotel in 1937, is resurrected as a vampire in the ruins of the hotel in the present-day. The voice of the hotel inside Louise’s head drives her to go out and devour human blood.


She goes to the studio of the photographer Carlos who is under pressure from hoods to pay up owed money and models for him. When people are startled by the presence she displays on camera and demand that she be made a feature model, Carlos becomes obsessed with finding her again.


Behind the captivating title, The Girl with the Hungry Eyes turns out to in fact be a vampire film. Sadly, it is no more than a glorified student film that is self-consciously trying to be arty and one that soon collapses into pretentiousness of the highest order.


Christina Fulton gives an appallingly over-the-top performance, staggering around like a cross between a strung-out junkie and a silent movie version of a waif. She is given these interior monologues that try to be hip but are terrible.


Director Jon Jacobs throws in pretentious lighting schemes, odd camera effects and distorted cut-up editing – there is a completely laughable theatricality to it all.


(Jacobs also makes a awful appearance as a white trash local who tries to pick Christina Fulton up). Some of this might have been tolerable if The Girl with the Hungry Eyes was a film with some original ideas and something to say but sadly this is not the case.


Indeed, strip away all the artifice and it is an extremely trivial vampire film that transpires as holding nothing more than a banally ordinary vampire-finds-true-love plot.


The film is based on a 1949 short story by famed fantasy/horror author Fritz Leiber. (The same short story was also adapted earlier as an episode of Rod Serling’s Night Gallery in 1971).


What happens is often not clear – for instance, we are never certain if it was the hotel itself that resurrected Christina Fulton from the dead. There is the confused notion of the hotel that appears to be rebuilding itself,


a la the house in Burnt Offerings (1976), as Fulton claims each victim. The one positive aspect is the Miami locations whose colour and sunniness make a sharp contrast for a vampire film.


Jon Jacobs and Christina Fulton later teamed up again for the equally bizarre and pretentious Lucinda’s Spell (1998), an erotic film about modern witchcraft. Jacobs has subsequently made the documentary I Want to Be a Porn Star (2002), the Western The Wooden Gun (2002), and Hey DJ (2003) and Miami II Ibiza (2012) in which he plays a DJ.


The only other Fritz Leiber work to be adapted to the screen was his novel Conjure Wife (1943), which has been adapted as Hey DJ (1944), Night of the Eagle/Burn, Witch, Burn (1961) and Witches’ Brew (1979).

A., Les Films de l’Astre Distributors: Bolero Film, Panocéanic Films, Filmax Stars: Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastini, Asia Argento, Unax Ugalde, Miriam Giovanelli, Rutger Hauer, Maria Cristina Heller, Augusto Zucchi, Franco Ravera, Francesco Rossini, Giovanni Franzoni, Giuseppe Lo Console, Riccardo Cicogna, Christian Burruano, Eugenio Allegri, Nicola Baldoni, Alma Noce


Film buffs can be a fickle bunch. Back in the eighties it appeared that Dario Argento could do absolutely no wrong but nowadays any movie that bears his name is instantly expected to suck. One prime example of this short-sighted treachery is the concluding chapter of his Three Mothers Trilogy which was dismissed by many before they so much as gave it the time of day. While there can be no denying that Mother of Tears fell short of the standard of both Suspiria and Inferno, it certainly wasn’t a travesty and actually tied things up rather well given the fact that it arrived over twenty years tardy.


Ultimately, it’s all a question of perspective. Had it been released back then, I’m convinced that its crimes would have been considered far less heinous but instead it is commonly referred to as the ugly runt of the litter. So when the Italian director took the executive decision of updating Bram Stoker’s cherished Dracula, understandably a few eyebrows were raised. I’ll admit that even I harbored doubts as to whether or not he could pull off such an audacious feat, particularly since his previous feature, 2009’s Giallo, received a pounding right across the board.


When you consider that knives are already drawn the very moment a new Argento project is announced, imagine the carnage that would ensue once they discover that one of the most sacred fables in the history of horror was set to be desecrated…in 3D no less. Talk about setting yourself up to fail. However, I will never be found culpable of willing a project on to fall flat on its face, especially when its director has supplied so many highlights during my filmic development.


Thus, I would extend Argento’s Dracula the same professional courtesy I would any other movie and set the bar of expectation realistically. Since Francis Ford Coppola’s largely successful 1992 effort, the Count has had far less than satisfactory representation on the silver screen and another misfire would surely be par for the course, which alleviated a little of the pressure on the Italian. Moreover, coherent narrative has never been his strongest suit so crafting a literary masterwork was also looking like somewhat unlikely.


One thing you can generally always count on with any Argento movie is a strong atmosphere and, with regular cinematographer Luciano Tovoli supporting his vision, the Gothic setting seemed positively ripe for the picking. So it proves as the screen is brimming with candle wax reds and lush greens, lending a rustic charm which calls to mind the Hammer films of yesteryear. The production design is also up to snuff and incorporates bustling villages, vibrant woodlands and ,of course, the remote castle in which our Count spends his downtime.


If it all feels a little unnatural then it is worth remembering that this was shot for 3D and, chances are, most of us will never experience it that way. Another Argento mainstay is ex-Goblin audio hot-shot Claudio Simonetti and his rousing composition assists no end in capturing the mood of the piece. Argento openly admits to being a visual creature and his greatest strength has never been his screenwriting. Here he enlists Enrique Cerezo, Stefano Piani and Antonio Tentori to assist in giving the age-old fable a contemporary feel and it is here that purists will likely take exception.


If you are expecting a faithful interpretation of the classic tale then you’re barking up the wrong tree entirely as he takes a number of liberties with the source material, most unruly being his decision to portray Count Dracula as less of a monster than a hopeless romantic. Trust me when I say that you just have to roll with the punches and take comfort from the fact that at least he opts for Transylvania as his setting, instead of following the recent vogue for relocation.


More troublesome to justify are his casting decisions, particularly with his chosen head vampire. The usually bankable Thomas Kretschmann is strangely subdued and given surprisingly little to sink his incisors into, making for a much less enigmatic Dracula than we have come to expect. Marta Gastini fares better as Mina although the inclusion of Unax Ugalde’s Jonathan Harker feels almost entirely inconsequential.


Most surprising is his daughter Asia, appearing for the fifth time in her father’s work, but seeming a little out-of-sorts in the slighter role of Lucy. Thankfully, you can always count on Rutger Hauer to add flavor to the dish and he proves an inspired choice to play Abraham Van Helsing, peeling back the years with a particularly physical portrayal of the great vampire hunter. In some ways, he would have been a more savvy choice for Dracula although, considering he is well into his sixties now, it may have been a stretch even for one as effortlessly beguiling as he.


Speaking of which, one particularly shrewd decision on Argento’s part is the inclusion of Miriam Giovanelli as Tania and she is mesmerizing from the very first frame, for a number of reasons. Thank the heavens above for cleavage-enhancing corsets and compromised chastity belts. One accusation you could never level at Argento’s Dracula is that it is lacking in either incident or excitement. The pace is breakneck throughout and 110 minutes soars past like a bat on amphetamines, barely pausing for a single breath for its duration.


His is a far more dynamic interpretation than most with a surprisingly generous quota of hand-to-hand combat and, with Sergio Stivaletti dishing up the practical splatter, we are guaranteed a number of grisly dispatches. More debatable is the over-reliance on CGI and it is hard to argue that certain more ambitious effects wouldn’t have benefitted from adopting a more conventional approach but my grandmother always taught me never to look a gift horse in the mouth so I’ll let it slide.


Undoubtedly most outlandish is the moment when the Count transforms into a life-sized mantis and this bold decision has drawn widespread criticism from pretty much all quarters. In his defence, this is the guy who presented us with a switchblade wielding gibbon for Phenomena way back in 1985 and I actually found it quite an endearing inclusion. Having said that, I’m fairly convinced that Stoker never intended his iconic lead to shape shift into a giant grasshopper so it’s fair to say that he is likely turning in his casket about now. In the context of Argento’s tale however, it feels like fair game.


All things considered, Argento’s Dracula is far from the unmitigated disaster many believe it to be. Let’s not get it twisted, a bona fide classic it most certainly isn’t. Even if you choose to overlook any of the numerous historical inaccuracies, it is a deeply flawed piece and culpable of some fairly significant gaffes. Despite this, there are still many reasons to celebrate. Visually this is the closest Argento has come to recapturing his former highs and it is undoubtedly one of the more rambunctious adaptations of Stoker’s Gothic masterpiece to appear in recent times.


Ultimately, this works best when you approach without the pre-prepared garlic and enjoy it for precisely what it is. Shameless entertainment. On that count alone, I will gladly offer up my jugular. If you are looking for a bloodbath, then you have come to the right place as deep red is the color of choice here. Heads roll, faces are impaled, stakes plunged, throats quenched from freely, limbs subtracted, ashen remains dissolved and barely a minute passes without casualty.


Once again, Asia is the subject of her father’s curious fascination and I, for one, will never complain as she was clearly fashioned from the finest Italian fabrics. In addition to ogling at her hypnotic chest pendulums, we are gifted to the sight of the delectable Giovanelli in varying states of undress and that is a reason to rejoice that nobody can quibble against.



Damon Salvatore is a vampire, turned by Katherine Pierce one hundred
and forty-nine years ago.


He is the son of the late Giuseppe Salvatore and the older brother of Stefan


He is a charming, handsome and snarky person who loves Elena Gilbert.
In 1864, Damon was turned into a vampire after being shot by his
father with Katherine Pierce's blood in his system.


His transitioning was completed after his younger brother Stefan,
also now a vampire, convinced him to seduce and then turn a woman
into a sexy blood drinking vixen.


Damon, angry that Stefan forced him to complete his transition to
a vampire, vowed to make Stefan's life miserable - this would cause
over a century-long rift between the brothers.


"But you know what I really am? Selfish. Because I make bad choices
that hurt you. Yes, I would rather die than be human.


I'd rather die right now than spend a handful of years with you only
to lose you when I'm too old and sick and miserable and you're
still you.


I'd rather die right now than spend my last final years remembering
how good I had it and how happy I was.


Because that's who I am and I'm not going to change. And there's
no apology in the world that encompasses all the reasons that I'm
wrong for you.”

— Damon to Elena in Graduation


Damon’s sole purpose in coming back to Mystic Falls was to free
Katherine Pierce, the vampire who turned him and the woman he
deeply loved.


After realizing that Katherine never loved him, Damon started working
with Stefan and Katherine’s descendant and doppelgänger,
Elena Gilbert,


whom he eventually falls in love and begins a romantic relationship
with. He currently lives with his girlfriend, Elena Gilbert and
her brother, Jeremy Gilbert in the Salvatore Boarding House.


For the majority of the first few years, Damon was the town's main
antagonist but he cooperates with Stefan to protect Elena,
her family, and frequently her friends. Damon has been helping Elena
with her new found vampirism.


He is also best friends with Alaric Saltzman and Bonnie Bennett.
Damon is a member of the Salvatore Family and a member of the Town


Damon in his early-30s, has light blue eyes and dark brown hair that hangs
just over his ears, and is styled in a casual disarray. He is
light complected with olive undertones, and a good toned physique.


Damon usually wears darker clothing: black boots under dark jeans,
a black shirt, whether just a t-shirt or button up depends on the
occasion, and he is rarely seen without his leather jacket.


Damon also has tremendous cheek bones. He is relatively athletic,
tall, strong, sexy, seductive and a good dancer.


Elena Gilbert is Damon's new girlfriend and his best friend.
As time progressed, he fell in love with Elena.


Damon is a 170 year old immortal who is described as seductive,
handsome, hot, impulsive and charming.


Elena first met Damon when he was in Mystic Falls looking for his
object of obsession for over a century, Katherine Pierce. He then
talked to Elena but afterwards, compelled her to forget their meeting.


Elena then met Damon again at the Salvatore Boarding House
when she went to look for Stefan.


Damon and Elena's friendship deepens with time and the two become closer,
with Damon haven fallen for Elena and Elena developing feelings
for Damon. Damon has repeatedly admitted that he is in love with Elena,
however, Elena has admitted that she loves him too.


Damon once told Elena that he loved her, but that he didn't deserve her,
but Stefan does. He then compelled her to forget his confession
afterwards. Elena and Damon are closer than ever, and the sexual
tension between them has even increased as Elena's emotions
were heightened.


Stefan ends his relationship with Elena because of her no longer
fighting the feelings she has for Damon. Elena admitted to Damon
that he was the reason of her breakup with Stefan and with Jeremy.


trying to kill her, Elena had to move with Damon. Stefan moves out
when she moves in because of the relationship between her and Damon.


Damon and Elena also had sex for the first time and became
a real couple the night she moves in with him.


Despite being sired to him, her feelings for him are real and
she loves him either way. She will not be giving up on him.


He may be selfish with his feelings but he doesn’t regret it
– when push comes to shove, he’ll always put her first and it’s
for that same reason that he’s always saving her when she needs him.


Damon brings out a side of Elena that none of her past loves
have been able to and challenges her in a way that no one else can.


He hasn't taken advantage of Elena when he's had the opportunity.


He's usually played fair with her, and he's always saying that
she's the one woman he has to do the right thing by.


When Damon and Elena are in the same room together, the sexual
tension between them crackles and pops like a sparkler.


And even when they aren’t saying anything, the pair can carry
on entire conversations through eye contact and body language.


Damon loves her unconditionally without expecting anything in return
because that's who he is. He loves her either way, human
or vampire.


The relationship between the cured vampire/human doppelgänger, Elena Gilbert
and the cured vampire/human, Damon Salvatore, is a complicated, but a popular
and powerful romantic pairing, and a significant relationship in the series.


Though initially started on antagonistic terms, their relationship
develops throughout the series. He was the narcissistic evil
vampire, who came to town to seek revenge on his younger brother,
who Elena happened to develop an interest in. When everyone had
written Damon off as a bad guy who couldn't be redeemed, Elena,
who was unafraid of him and willing to call him on his crap, saw
something in him that hinted he wasn't entirely evil.


And so there marked the start of a tentative friendship. Over
the seasons, their bond continues to grow, from becoming allies to
friends, to best friends and, ultimately, lovers. He’s always saving
her from danger and she’s saving him from his dark self, they both
care deeply for each other, regardless of any obstacles that
may come in their way.


They both love each other with a passion that consumes them.
For him, she is the best thing that has ever happened to him
in his life. For her, he is the one that defines her and believes
him to be her soulmate.


They are known as "Delena" by fans.


Damon Salvatore is one of the two main male protagonists of The
Vampire Diaries. Damon was a 178-year-old vampire and distant descendant
of Silas. He is now human, since his brother Stefan Salvatore injected
him with the cure which was in his blood. He was a major antagonist in
the first part of Season One. He is the older brother of the late
Stefan Salvatore, the husband of Elena Gilbert and the brother-in-law
of Caroline Forbes and Jeremy Gilbert.


He was born during the 1800s and lived in the colonial town of
Mystic Falls with his brother Stefan, his father, Giuseppe Salvatore,
and also with his mother Lillian Salvatore until her death in 1858.
He became a vampire in 1864. At the time of his return to Mystic
Falls, Damon and Stefan hadn't seen each other in
fifteen years due to their bitter and violent relationship.


In the 1950's, Damon was captured and tortured by the Augustine society,
led by the Whitmore family, who experimented on vampires for a "bigger
purpose". During his five years of captivity, he meets another prisoner,
Enzo, with whom he became best friends with. Eventually, the plan
the two made failed at a critical moment and thinking Enzo "died"
because of him, Damon turned off his humanity to suppress the guilt
and sadness. He sought revenge, an act of hunting down every member
over generations which he finally ends with Aaron Whitmore's death.


Damon's sole purpose in coming back to Mystic Falls was to free his
sire Katherine Pierce from a tomb she was never in. Damon deeply loved
her after 145 years. After realizing that Katherine never loved him, his
love for her fades as his friendship and love for Elena, Katherine's
descendant and doppelgänger, grows. Due to her impact on him and
the strengthening relationship with his brother, they begin working
together to protect Elena, along with her friends and family.


He lives with his brother Stefan, girlfriend Elena (when she wasn't away at college),
and her brother Jeremy Gilbert (after Elena burned their house down) in the Salvatore
Boarding House. In the Season Three, Damon filled the role as a deuteragonist in
the first half of the season due to Stefan falling prey to Klaus.


Throughout the series, his bond with Elena continuously grows and
they eventually fall in love with each other. Shortly after her death
and subsequent transition into a vampire, Elena's feelings for Damon are
heightened which makes her admit her love for him and they start a
romantic relationship in Season Four.


The relationship is complicated when they realize that, due to the fact
that it was Damon's blood that turned Elena, she is sire-bonded to him,
so nobody is sure whether Elena's feelings for Damon are real or
because of the sire bond, but most of the people they know insist
that, once the sire bond is broken, Elena will return to Stefan.
When Jeremy dies, Elena turns off her emotions; after she turns them
back on, the sire bond is broken and Elena reveals that her feeling for
Damon were real and she's still in love with him.


In Season Five, he discovers Enzo's undead status and they become friends
once again however once "Elena" breaks up with him, he puts an end to his
diabolical plan against the Whitmore Family and is then injected with a
dangerous compound by Wes Maxfield, causing him to become an Augustine
Vampire and the only one in existence.


This injection would cause him to crave vampire blood and he would not
be able to stop feeding until he had killed. He was later cured, thanks to
Enzo, Stefan, and Caroline's actions. Due to the Other Side collapsing,
Damon gave up his life to save his loved ones and this particularly caused
Elena, Stefan, and Alaric much grief.


In Season Six, Damon and Bonnie are trapped in a 1994 Prison World, which
Damon initially believes is his own personal hell, as they are continually
reliving a day from his history that Damon believes is the worst thing he
ever did. Bonnie is convinced her grandmother sent them there and there
is a way out. They work together to find a way back to Mystic Falls.


They also form an alliance to take down Kai. During this time, he is able
to form a healthy friendship with Bonnie, and they are able to move on
from their past and become friends. When Bonnie has a chance to send him
home, leaving herself alone with Kai, she does so. Damon initially believes
Bonnie was killed in the process, but when he realized she's still
alive, he becomes determined to find a way to bring her back.


After returning home, he learns that Elena has had Alaric compel away all
her memories of their relationship and he attempts to win her back. Damon
soon learns of Liz's sickness and soon after, she passes away in the hospital
in front of him, leaving him devastated. He is soon reunited with Bonnie
who made it out of the prison world and shows him a video of a mysterious
lady, who turns out to be Damon's mother.


Bonnie had managed to escape the 1994 Prison World by going to Nova
Scotia and regaining her magic there through Qetsiyah's tombstone.
She also picked up the cure for vampirism there. He then gave Elena the
cure and shocked her by saying he was going to take it with her and become
human too. The cure also undid the compulsion Alaric placed on Elena.


At the end of the season Kai put a spell on Elena and Bonnie which was
supposed to keep the now human Elena in a Sleeping Beauty-like sleep
until Bonnie dies, Elena will remain asleep. Damon was devastated by
this and said a difficult goodbye to Elena as they locked her in a
coffin while his best friend, Bonnie, lived out her remaining days. However,
in I Was Feeling Epic, Bonnie managed to break the spell, allowing Elena
to wake up and not to killing herself. Later in the episode, the newly
human Damon married Elena Gilbert and they lived a long and happy life
together, probably having children.


His best friends are Elena Gilbert, Alaric Saltzman and Bonnie Bennett. He
was close friends with Elizabeth Forbes until her death. His friendship
with his sister-in-law Caroline Forbes has improved during the last season
and they now consider themselves as close friends. Damon was also best
friends with Enzo from the time he first met him, until the latter was
killed, despite the two occasionally being at odds.



“ Life sucks when you're ordinary. And what makes you exactly
not like them? You're a vampire. You take that cure and become
human, you're no one, nothing. Trust me, losing this cure was
the best damn thing that ever happened to you.” — Damon to
Rebekah in Bring It On


The relationship between Damon Salvatore and the Original Vampire
Rebekah Mikaelson is complex since they had two night stands with each
other and Rebekah was romantically involved with Stefan in the 1920's.
They met each other in Season Three. These two were never close, but they
frequently allied without ache other to achieve a common goal.


Their biggest alliance was to find the cure. However, this alliance fell through
when Rebekah wanted the cure for herself. They are referred to by fans as


In Smells Like Teen Spirit, Damon gets introduced to Rebekah as Klaus has
left her behind, after finding out that Damon has found Mikael. Elena asked
Damon to keep an eye on Rebekah so that she can get Stefan to turn on his
humanity again. Rebekah coyly tells Damon she knows he’s trying to distract her
— then, after telling him no fight between the two of them could ever be fair,
she stabs him right in the gut.


In Dangerous Liaisons, Rebekah went to Matt to apologize for what happened
to him but Matt told her to leave him alone. Damon arrived to find Rebekah
standing at the bar so Damon poured them both a drink.


Damon tells her that she needs someone that is more durable, and Rebekah
asks him who that would be. Damon and Rebekah are next seen in his bedroom,
kissing and ripping off each other's clothes madly. Damon and Rebekah then
have sex.


In All My Children, Elena visits Damon to apologize for what she said to him,
but Damon claims that he is over it. Elena stands there shocked when she sees
Rebekah standing next to Damon. Rebekah then walks past Elena with a smile
on her face.


In 1912, Damon arrives at the mystic grill and sees Rebekah talking to
Carol. After Carol tells Rebekah that the Salvatore owned the mills
back in the day, she went over to Damon and Stefan to talk about it.
Later when Rebekah catches Damon's dart, she tells Damon that Sage
knew Finn 900 years ago.


When Stefan leaves the bar, Damon and Rebekah force him to feed on a
girl in the street as a test to see how much blood he can handle at a
time. Stefan drinks, and just about drinks her dry like he did in 1912 but
Damon stops him. Damon tells Rebekah to leave.


In the episode Break On Through, Sage convinces Damon to get close
to Rebekah to find out why she is asking about the trees. Damon
seduces Rebekah and the two end up kissing and having sex again.
While Rebekah is sleeping, Sage comes into Damon's bedroom and
goes into her mind, only to find out that there is another white oak tree.


Damon looked at the old 1912 log book and finds that they used the white
oak tree to build the wickery bridge. Sage tells Rebekah about the bridge
and she is seen burning the parts used on the bridge.


Damon asked Sage why she betrayed him, and she replied that he didn't
tell her that Finn and the other Originals were bound together. However,
Damon finds a sign which was made of the white oak tree's wood and they can
now kill the Originals.


In The Murder of One, Rebekah tortures Damon after feeling betrayed because
he pretended to like her and used her to get information on the White Oak Tree.


Later, after Stefan tries to bargain the remaining White Oak Stakes for Damon's
freedom, Rebekah lets Damon go even though they don't have all the stakes as
a sign of faith. When Klaus comments on this Rebekah responds that she


respects the Salvatore's because they are willing to fight for each other and
die for each other, which is more than she can say for Klaus.


In The Departed, when Rebekah comes to see Damon at the storage warehouse,
Damon hides Rebekah and tells her to be quiet. The two then try to get Klaus'
body out of the storage warehouse before Alaric finds them. Alaric shows up
however, and stakes Klaus, with an emotional Rebekah watching.


Just as he is ready to kill Rebekah, Damon yells at Rebekah to run, showing that
he does in fact care about her.



“ Dear Bonnie, I'm a coward. I should be saying this to your
face not writing this letter but, I know if I do you'll talk me
out of running away from all my problems. You're gonna make
me face a future without Elena, and you're gonna help make
me the best man that I can possibly be. Same way she did.
And I'm absolutely terrified of failing you both. So I'm
leaving.Because I'd rather let you down once then let you
down for the rest of your life. And I hope it's the happiest
life because you, Bonnie Bennett, are an amazing woman,
mediocre crossword player, and my best friend. With great
love and respect, Damon.” — Damon's letter to Bonnie
in Nostalgia's a Bitch


This is the relationship between the cured vampire, Damon
Salvatore and the witch, Bonnie Bennett. Bonnie first saw
Damon in Friday Night Bites when he dropped Caroline
off at cheerleading practice. They first interacted in Haunted,
when Damon learned that Bonnie had come into possession
of the Bennett Talisman.


He needed this to open the tomb which Katherine was locked in (for
145 years or so he believed). At first, Bonnie didn't want to have
anything to do with Damon, saving his life only for Elena's sake
and soon blaming him for Caroline's transition into a vampire.
However, as time went on, Bonnie was put into situations where
she had to work with Damon to achieve what they both wanted
(albeit reluctantly at first).


Their teamwork has often proved to be beneficial for the both of them. Their
relationship has even come to a point where Damon is visibly worried for
Bonnie's well-being and was devastated when he found out about her death.
The improvement of their relationship is seen in Damon's efforts to help
bring Bonnie back from the dead. However, their unique friendship hit
a speed bump when Damon reverted to his old ways.


Finally, they stood side by side with each other as the Other Side collapsed,
holding each other's hand and at peace with what is to come for the both of
them. They later discover that they are trapped in a 1994 Prison World.
During that time, they start to bond and form a close alliance to take down
Kai. Before sending Damon back home, she mentions that he's not exactly
the last person she would wanna be stuck with.


When Damon returns home, he does everything he can to find a way to bring
Bonnie back, including a long road trip to Oregon to seek the Gemini Coven,
and also compelling Alaric to steal the Ascendant from Jo. They finally
reunite at the Salvatore Boarding House with a hug after Sheriff Forbes's
funeral. It's shown that Damon and Bonnie genuinely care about each other
and have made sacrifices for each other. After the many ups and downs in
their relation ship during Season Seven, they become close again.


However, Bonnie is heartbroken to learn that the Armory's monster corrupted
Damon's mind and she lost him again. Bonnie is currently trying to save his
life, along with Enzo's life, with the rest of her friends.


In Friday Night Bites, Bonnie is at cheerleading practice with Elena
wondering about Caroline. When Damon pulls up in his car with Caroline,
seeing them kiss before she gets out, Bonnie surmises that Damon is the
mystery guy from the grill. Elena tells Bonnie that he is Damon Salvatore and
Bonnie guesses that he's related to Stefan.


In Haunted, Damon walks up to Bonnie asking about Caroline's whereabouts.
After Bonnie warns him to stay away from Caroline, Damon notices that the
she is wearing the Bennett Talisman around her neck. When she won't give
it to him, Damon tries to take it and the necklace burns his hand and a
frightened Bonnie runs away.


Damon demands that Bonnie give him the crystal In History Repeating,
Bonnie had dreams about her wiccan ancestor Emily Bennett, which lead
the girls (Elena, Bonnie and Caroline) to decide to hold a séance. During
the séance, Emily was able to possess Bonnie and use her own more mature
powers to destroy the Bennett Talisman and try to prevent the release of
the vampires sealed in the Tomb under Fell's Church.


Meanwhile, Damon reveals the reason he really came back to Mystic Falls:
to resurrect Katherine with the help of the talisman, which Katherine had
given to Emily on the last day of Emily's life before she was executed.
Stefan tried to stop Damon, knowing that it would cause a disaster in Mystic


All the vampires held in the tomb of the old Fell's Church were trapped
without blood for 145 years, which caused them to desiccate slowly and
painfully, and Emily was concerned that the vampires would kill the
descendents of the Founding Families in retaliation.


On her way to the ruins of old Fell's Church, Damon greets Emily (in Bonnie's
body) and reminds her about the deal they made a century and a half prior:
Damon would protect Emily's line and Emily would protect Katherine.
Damon lunged for the crystal talisman, and Emily used her power to throw
him up to the branch of a tree so she could perform the ritual to destroy the
crystal without his interference.


Emily released Bonnie from her possession immediately afterwards.
Furious, Damon attacked Bonnie, but Stefan saves her by pulling him
off of her and feeding her his blood to heal her.


In Isobel, Isobel and John Gilbert (Elena's biological parents) want
the Gilbert Device, which Pearl stole back in 1864 from the original
Johnathan Gilbert. Pearl gave it to Damon, and when Isobel and John found
out, Isobel demanded that Elena, Stefan and Damon give the device to her
or would kill Jeremy. Bonnie, after she learns the device is a weapon
against vampires, offers to dispel the device, which would make it
useless. However, she only pretended to dispel it because of her dislike
of vampires (excluding her friends who were turned into vampires, such as
Caroline). However, Bonnie makes up for it in the end by helping Elena
and Stefan save Damon from death.


In The Return, Caroline is admitted to the hospital after she, Tyler, and
Matt are in a car accident. Bonnie arrives at the Hospital feeling
extremely guilty and worried about Caroline's condition, as the
wreck occurred due to Tyler being affected by the noise of the Gilbert
Device that she lied about deactivating. Still, although with resentment
toward Damon, she convinces him to giving Caroline some of his blood
to heal her and guarantee her recovery.


In Brave New World, after Caroline is murdered by Katherine in the
hospital, Bonnie is horrified to discover that Caroline has
transitioned into a vampire. This caused Bonnie to lash out at Damon,
who she blamed for all the misery that had occurred in Mystic Falls, and
uses her powers to spray Damon with water from a hose and then set
the water on fire. Bonnie was determined to get rid of Damon once and
for all, but she is stopped by Elena, who reminded her not to let the
vampires get the best of her.


In Plan B, Bonnie bumped into Mason Lockwood and got a vision of him
and who she thinks is Elena (but is really Katherine) kissing. Stefan
realized what it meant, and informed Damon. Together, Bonnie and Damon
incapacitate Mason and take him back to the Salvatore Boarding House
where they try to find out where the moonstone was and what he and Katherine
wanted with it. Bonnie, who Damon calls "judgy" leaves as soon as she
learns that the moonstone is in a well, and leaves Damon before she can find
out what Damon planned to do with him.


In Masquerade, Bonnie helped Damon and Stefan with their plan to kill
Katherine at the Masquerade Ball by putting a spell on a room in the
Lockwood Mansion to keep vampires inside.


In The Sacrifice, Bonnie did a spell to help Damon and Stefan. Damon takes
Bonnie to the witch burial grounds In Know Thy Enemy, Bonnie worked
with Jeremy and Damon in order to find the spell they needed to harness
the power of the one hundred witches killed in a massacre hundreds of
years prior. Damon admitted knew where the site was because Emily Bennett
had been burned there, and that he had tried to save her. He took them
to the site where the witches were burned. Inside the house, Damon noticed
that he could not move. Seconds later, his daylight ring stopped working,
and Bonnie deadpans that the spirits didn't like him being in the house.


Stefan and Damon later called Bonnie "their secret weapon" because no
one except for them knew that Bonnie had her powers back and had been
successful in harnessing the energy of the 100 dead witches.


Bonnie and Damon figured out that Klaus (in Alaric's body) had
been planning to kill her by provoking her into using more magical
power than she was able while trying to kill him. Damon told Elena to
run and find Stefan, and then asked Bonnie if she was still willing to
do what has to be done to kill Klaus. When Stefan and Elena returned,
they found Damon alone and Bonnie in the cafeteria fighting with Klaus.
After a few striking blows at Klaus, Bonnie sank to the ground and Stefan
and Elena couldn’t find a pulse. Damon cut in and told them to leave and
that he would take care of the body, stating that the Sheriff couldn't
find out about it.


He took Bonnie back to the house on the witch burning site and she
woke up soon after, revealing that she had only pretended to die in
order to give the group more time to formulate a plan to kill Klaus.
Damon and Bonnie decided not to tell anyone because the only way
that Klaus would think she was dead was if everyone else did as well.


In The Sun Also Rises, Bonnie cast a spell on John to bind his life-force
to Elena's. Damon, Bonnie and Elijah leave for the sacrifice, where Klaus
was planning on killing a vampire (Jenna), a werewolf (Jules) and the
Petrova doppelgänger (Elena). Jeremy wanted to accompany them, but
Bonnie kissed him and cast a spell to make him pass out. Meanwhile, Alaric
was furious when he discovered that he was unable to leave the house, due
to the sealing spell Bonnie had placed on the house to keep him and Jeremy


Bonnie appeared and threw Klaus across the ground. Greta headed over toward
them, but Damon broke her neck. He picked up Elena and pulled the stake out
of Stefan's back. Stefan told him to get Elena out of there and revealed he won't
leave until Klaus is dead. Bonnie continued to cast the spell and as Klaus weaken
Elijah approached him.


Elijah began to kill him, but Klaus croaked that he did not bury their family
at sea - the bodies were safe. He promised to take Elijah to them if he saved
him, and told him that if he killed him, he would never find them. Bonnie
threatened to kill them both if Elijah doesn't slay Klaus, adding that she didn't
care if she died in the process. But Elijah apologized and dashed away with
Klaus before Bonnie could stop them.
