Damon Salvatore is heading down a dark path — and he might destroy his relationship with Elena along the way.
In what was an eye-opening episode of The Vampire Diaries last week, Elena (Nina Dobrev) learned some of the history behind the Augustine vampires, including the fact that her boyfriend Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was locked up and tortured for five years. While his anger upon escaping was certainly reasonable, Damon revealed his revenge was to kill every generation of Whitmores, with the exception of one person per family, which also happened to include Aaron (Shaun Sipos)'s parents and aunt. In the final moments of the hour, Damon found himself alone in the cell while Elena was trapped in the lab alongside Damon's former cellmate, Enzo (Michael Malarkey), who had been presumed dead.
