The Vampire Diaries: The Last Day

Damon is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to prevent Elena from being a victim of Klaus' plan to break the curse. Damon's actions put him at terrible odds with Stefan and the tension that started brewing between the brothers over their differing opinions of how to help save Elena's life blows up into full-scale conflict. Tyler returns to Mystic Falls after receiving a disturbing phone call. With the full moon marking the arrival of the sacrifice ritual, Stefan and Elena spend a romantic day together -- afraid it might be their last.

Episode Quotes
Damon: Any reason you stopped by to say hi?
Klaus: I'm told you and your brother fancy my doppelgänger. Just thought I'd remind you not to do anything you'll regret.
Damon: Thanks for the advice. I don't suppose I could talk you into a postponement by any chance, huh?
Klaus: You are kidding. He is kidding, right?
Alaric: No. Not really.

Damon: Elijah's an original vampire, Stefan. One we tried to kill. You don't believe this guy.
Stefan: What do you want me to do, Damon? Elena made her decision. She's choosing to trust Elijah. I'm going to put my faith in her.
Damon: Why? She's just going to end up dead.
Stefan: Because she put her faith in me. She chose to trust me in spite of what I am. If I'm going to bet on someone instincts, it's going to be hers.
Damon: Then that makes you the biggest idiot of them all.
Stefan: She chose to trust you, too.
Damon: Maybe you shouldn't be so sure about her instincts.

Damon: We both knew that elixir wouldn't have worked anyway.
Elijah: The problem, Damon. You talk a good game, but you don't actually know anything. She'll never forgive you. And 'never' for a vampire? It's a very long time.

Damon: That was fun.
Alaric: You're gonna screw it up, aren't you?

Damon: And you're going to die, Elena.
Elena: And then I'll come back to life.
Damon: That is not a risk I am willing to take.
Elena: But I am. It's my life, Damon. My choice.
Damon: I can't lose you.
Elena: You won't.

Damon: What if it doesn't work, Elena?
Elena: Then I guess I'll just be dead.
