Damon plots to bring back his and Stefan’s past love Katherine Pierce, a vampire who looks exactly like Elena, and is played by the same actress.
Damon’s motives to cause trouble stems from the grudge he holds against his brother for forcing him to become a vampire.
Later in the series, he forgives Stefan but falls in love with Elena.
Of course, it wouldn’t be good TV without other protagonists.
Both brothers end up protecting Elena from various villains (including Katherine) and threats to their town, including werewolves and ghosts.
The show also portrays storylines about the other people who live in the town, like Elena’s little brother Jeremy Gilbert.
Elena’s friends are also an integral part of the plot, as their history teacher, who turns out to be a vampire hunter.
