The Vampire Diaries Season 6: How Will Elena Cope?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

What happens when you lose the love of your life and one of your best friends?

We'll find out on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

In an interview with TV Guide, executive producer Julie Plec said new episodes of her CW hit will pick up many months after Bonnie and Damon seemingly died, with various characters reacting to these deaths in various ways.

"Elena has returned to her life at school and seems to be doing well, but the mystery is really how well is she doing?" Plec teases. "And she's got some odd and awkward coping mechanisms that inform a lot about where she is and how she's handling this particular grief."

Visit TV Guide for the full interview with Plec and scroll down to learn where others are (mentally and physically) when we meet back up with them this fall...

STEFAN: He and Elena will “connect over the fact that sometimes it takes extreme choices to move past something that has hurt you so deeply… we will see their friendship be strong and healthy in spite of the way each of them individually are dealing with their loss."

CAROLINE: "She's taken this loss - in a weird way almost the hardest - so she's going to have to bounce back in her Caroline way. Who she bounces back with and how she does it and how she's living her life is revealed in the first episode."

ALARIC: "He was turned into a breed of original vampire and then set on a killing mission and then he died, so after being a weird vampire and a ghost for all this time he's assimilating into his life as this creature he never wanted to be. But he's still trying to be the human that he was and it's not easy for him."

Look for a new woman to also enter Alaric's life, while his bond with Elena grows stronger than ever.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 will be titled "I'll Remember" and it will air on Thursday, October 2 at 8/7c.

Okay, a few thoughts about this teaser:
1. Is this supposed to make us exciting about the "new turn" the show is taking? Elena is whining. Again. Like we haven't seen her cry for five fucking seasons already (and god, Nina has become ugly when she cries, she used to have a lot more grace to it).
2. Where the FUCK is Bonnie? This is the second time she died for Elena's sake, but does Elena even care? Helllll no, it's Damon, Damon, Damon, boohoo, Damon, lemme take some drugs so I can see Damon, boohoo. Hello? Elena, your best friend, who you've known ALL YOUR LIFE, just died AGAIN and all you can think about is the manwhore who killed your brother about three times, raped and abused your best friend (and didn't even apologize) and attempted to kill everyone you care about at least once?
3. How about we see some more of Stefan? I'd say losing his brother, with whom he has had a complicated relationship (to say the least) for a century and a half is a lot more interesting than some stupid, self-centered snowflake crying about her boyfriend, whom she's been with for like six months (and in those six months they broke up about 37 times) and who has made her feel like crap basically since the moment he walked into her life, except for those three months she spent having endless gross sex while her actual soulmate was drowning for HER SAKE. Again.
4. Where's Jeremy? Do people not realize that this is the third (fourth, if you count Bonnie's death in the season four finale as well) that this guy has lost his girlfriend? And again, Julie wants us to pity Elena. She has to start understanding that she can't sell Elena as the heroine of the show anymore. You don't get a medal for fucking two brothers within 24 hours. You don't get a pat on the back for not caring that your boyfriend almost killed your brother AGAIN. You don't deserve to whine and complain and cry when all you've done in five seasons is draw the attention to yourself. You can't expect us to root for a selfish, self-centered, empty, no-brained person who goes completely against canon by having her have some ridiculous speech about how all she sees is a future with a manwhore self-proclaimed serial killer. That's not a heroine, that's a pathetic excuse of a woman. How about they finally let her have some backbone? But noooo, let's try and attract the DE-stans again. Have they learned nothing from the tanking ratings at all? Delena does not deliver because it doesn't have anything substantial, except for sex - poorly acted sex, I might add. I shall now start praying to a God I don't even believe in that season six will be the last. (Besides, Julie, how do you wanna make ten seasons? No one ever believed that Paul/Stefan is seventeen to begin with. Ian/Damon looks at least thirty, not twenty-two. Nina/Elena looks in her twenties, not eighteen. Save some face, Julie, for the love of god.)


put Elena and Stefan back together they belong together... They met frist

@ Gabby

Untrue. Damon met Elena first, but erased her memory of him.

@ Carissa Pavlica

True but Stefan and Elena fell in love first - just like it was with Stefan and Katherine until Damon decided that he wanted her too.

I really like Stefan and Elena together. However I think in the end it will be Damon and Elena.

I actually stopped watching TVD's after the first few episodes of last season. I did read the recaps though. Sorry to say the show died a slow painful death when they turned it into the Delena Diaires. It's funny because Delenas were always yelling we're the majority, put Delena together. Then it happened and slow the fans of the show stopped watching and the ratings went down hill. Before the Delena bullies start. NO I'm not a Stalena. I was a fan of this show from the first episode of the first season. When the show was about the entire cast. Now it's boring. It'll be funny to see now that Dalena is not together if the ratings will go up.

Everything was about Delena. Always. Elena hasn't had a single conversation in the entire season that didn't concern Damon. Remember, in 5x19, when Bonnie was telling about the Other Side disintegrating? To which Elena's response was "well, Damon says that he doesn't want to see me anymore, so you're not the only one in denial". Yes, because knowing you'll die AGAIN is the same thing as having your manwhore boyfriend be immature about the possibility of at least a friendship. -.- At least when she was with Stefan, she also still cared about her friends and her brother (let's not forget that her relationship with Damon was so DISGUSTING to Jeremy that he actually moved away from her, but did she even pick up the phone to call him?).


Hopefully makers occasionally read these forums and they see that let Damon and Bony where they are (where exactly?) Series would hurt a lot. Should not bury him completely. Damon humor and his chemistry with Elena is no substitute. And to Stefan seems to me more suited Caroline.

@ ellein

Of course they didn't. No one ever dies in TVD these days. Death israpidly becoming a holiday: they always come back.

@ ellein

Reading between the lines......ha? So Julie Plec sort of mentioned that both 'Damon' & 'Bonnie' definitely have the chance of coming back from dead....happy!

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 Quotes

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]

We're all getting through our own way.
