|“||Well, if you don't bring Bonnie back from the Other Side, then you'll be breaking your promise to Elena, and the idea of jeopardizing your relationship brings me this perverse amount of joy, so I've decided not to help you, Damon.||”|
Before Damon was born, Silas was a witch for over two thousand years ago who became Immortal with his lover, Amara after he stole the Immortality elixir created for his wedding to the witch Qetsiyah. However he was imprisoned and left dormant for two thousand years. But when it came to the episode Down the Rabbit Hole, he was awoken by Katherine by feeding him Jeremy's blood, and Silas killed him. Silas was buried with The Cure for over 2,000 years.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series
In Pictures of You, Damon was attacked by Silas, who was posing as his brother Stefan; before that he had posed as Damon to attack Stefan as a warning and Damon did say "Did someone posing as me get to you" or on the same lines as that.
In The Walking Dead, Silas posed as Damon's dead friend Alaric, who said "I just spotted Silas" but Damon wasn't fooled by his pretense in getting away. But Bonnie did turn him into stone and left him there until she died, and so the spell had broken.
In Graduation, Silas hadn't completely broke out of his stone spell, but was hidden away for either Damon or Stefan to put into the safe and fling off the cliff into the quarry, but instead of Silas being put into the safe, it was Damon's brother, Stefan, who is a doppelgänger of Silas.
In I Know What You Did Last Summer, Damon is surprised to see Stefan back in town after not hearing from him. Jeremy tells Damon when he's gone that is not Stefan, but Silas; and Damon thinks that's impossible, but finds out Jeremy is not wrong. He tries to make a deal with Silas, which consists in offering Katherine in exchange of Stefan.
In Monster's Ball, They work together to get information out of Tessa, with Damon holding his brother hostage and breaking his neck every time he's awake so Silas can pose as Stefan. Damon only agreed to do this so Silas would bring Bonnie back to life and for Slias to get the information about where the anchor is.
In Handle with Care, Damon helps him find the anchor and realizes it's Amara.
In Death and the Maiden, Damon gets a call from Silas, who's backing out of his deal to bring Bonnie back to life in exchange for his own and tells Damon that he doesn't care for Damon's relationship with Elena. He also mentions he's going to kill Amara since she is clearly suicidal, and that if she dies while she's still the anchor, the other side will be gone. Damon works to make sure that doesn't happen.
