As of last week, Damon was poisoned by vervain that was put into Caroline's blood. Stefan continues to inject it into Damon's blood and he has even taken off the ring that is used to protect the vampires from the sun and other dangers. Stefan thinks that he has it all figured out, too. He plans on punishing Damon by letting him dry out and he ends up being literally a living corpse. That is when he is put down in the dungeon for fifty years so that he can think about what he has been doing. After fifty years, Stefan will check in with him to see if he has become a changed man at all...Read the full recap
Damon: You won. Now nothing can come between you and Elena. Except the truth. The lies catch up to you, the longer you keep lying to yourself about who you are.
Stefan: The beauty of you in there and me out here ... is that I can walk away.
Elena: (to Stefan) What are you?!
Elena: I'm not gonna be one of those pathetic girls whose world stops just because of some guy.
Elena: I want so much to make things right but every instinct in my body is telling me to be careful. What you don't know can hurt you.
Jeremy: Why don't we choose not to get high?
Vicki: I hope you're not one of those guys who now that we're together tries to change everything about me.
Zach: You don't visit, Damon... You appear. Periodically. Reminding me that this isn't my house, that you're only allowing me to live here ... allowing me to live.
Damon: Someone had to mow the lawn.
Damon: Where's my ring?
Stefan: You won't be needing it anymore.
Elena: I think there's something he doesn't want me to know, which makes me wanna know all the more.
Matt: Like he's a serial killer and keeps a clown suit in his trunk?
