Caroline Dries Teases The Vampire Diaries Season 6: Where is Home?

at .  Updated at . Comments

We have many months to wait until The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere on The CW.

But as fans try to think of ways to spend their Thursday nights until the return of this drama in October, Executive Producer Caroline Dries is at least here to offer up a few teases and tidbits.

Where will each character find him or herself this fall? How will Alaric get along with Enzo? And can you imagine a dark Caroline Forbes?!?

Follow this link to read the full interview with Dries and scroll down for a few spoiler-iffic excepts...

Can you go home again? The anti-magic boundary will continue to play a role moving forward as we begin to explore this notion of what it means to go home again… we’ll see the effects exile has had on everyone and see that everyone is handling it differently and personal journeys will form. Some will be fighting for a way to save their home, others have given up or moved on or found peace with it.

A new rivalry? We are very excited about Alaric’s return and plan to incorporate him in Elena’s life, hoping to give a type of parental touchstone to her... Enzo, as we left him, is still a bit of a loose canon wild thing and I can’t wait until the two butt heads.

A different Caroline? The feelings behind [her] feelings [for Stefan] are something we get to explore in season 6 as we watch how her relationship with Stefan plays out. Any time we turn a character dark it’s fun because it’s a change of pace for the writers, actors and viewers.

Dries also teased a “very fresh place” for both Matt and Tyler, while confirming that, yes, we’ll be seeing Bonnie and Damon again on Season 6.

So you can breathe easy now, TVD Fanatics.

What are you most excited about for next year? Do you want to see Caroline and Stefan hook up? Don't you wish Bonnie could have brought Lexi back?!?

Discuss all these developments and many more in our Vampire Diaries forum!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
