How The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Rebooted the Show, For Better and Worse
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.

Damon and Elena, The Vampire Diaries. The FULL season 4 romance. Their story.
By Jaclyn Hendricks. During the season finale, things take a turn for the unexpected when the two kiss on her front porch after an intimate conversation. Or so we think. Unfortunately for Damon, his dream-come-true is actually a nightmare in disguise — in the form of his supposedly dead ex, Katherine also played by Nina Dobrev , in fact. With his final moments looming, Elena curls up to the dying Damon and kisses him gently. He survives, thanks to an impeccably timed appearance by Katherine, who arrives with a cure to save his life.
The current season of The Vampire Diaries its sixth has been, for the most part, an enjoyable return to form for the series, which lost its way a little bit last during Season 5. However, some things are still holding the show back from its former greatness, and the answer to exactly that those are can be traced back to The Vampire Diaries Season 4, which essentially acted as a reboot for the whole show, for better and worse. Suddenly, Elena, who was a least favorite character for many fans, was one of the best parts of the entire show and that was due to a renewed sense of agency that she had discovered in her new life as a vampire. Even as people were encouraging and discouraging Elena to find and take the cure, it was ultimately her decision. Neither Damon who wanted Elena to remain a vampire or Stefan who wanted her humanity returned to her controlled her choice, and it was refreshing to see the focus on Elena be about how she wanted to live instead of who she wanted to date.
