Despite the fact that Damon has lost Elena forever, the two are still on speaking terms on The Vampire Diaries
The next new episode, "Memory Lane," will offer more flashbacks to the
1860s to shed some more light on Katherine, but in the present, Damon is
cooking up a new scheme.

The lovable bad boy can't stay away from Elena, so he got Alaric to get Jenna to throw a BBQ and invite Mason Lockwood so Damon can continue his interest in the werewolf curse. Check out a clip from the episode.
I'm happy Elena isn't completely ignoring Damon because it offers some hope. Sure, Damon snapped Jeremy's neck, but somehow The Vampire Diaries
has been able to make him sympathetic. The truth is that Damon has had a rough season. First Katherine and Elena both revealed that they choose Stefan over him, then Damon collected all his sincerity to apologize to Elena and she still shot him down.
At this point, Damon should probably return to the dark side, but the fact that he hasn't is proof that, underneath that callous demeanor there's still a heart. Last week we saw Jeremy seemingly forgive Damon, so if he can do it, why can't Elena?
There are two paths Damon can go down. First, he could continue to connect to his humanity and try to win over Elena by being a good guy. Or second, he could turn and get evil again. Bad Damon might be more fun, but seeing Damon try his hardest to be good is making season 2 a lot more interesting.
