Recap

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 picks up several months after Mystic Falls became a no magic zone and Damon and Bonnie faded into oblivion. So how is everyone doing?

Perhaps most predictably, Caroline is holding everything together. She, along with a little help from Ric and Sheriff Forbes, is trying to break the travelers curse and get her town back. She thinks Elena isn't grieving, but she has no idea what is really going on.

Elena has been getting psychotropic witch drugs from Luke that allow her to communicate with Damon. These drugs make her a little thirsty and she may have been accidentally killing a few people in the process. According to Caroline, she's the "border lurker." Although Elena tries to say a very heartfelt goodbye to Damon, she knows it won't work and asks Alaric to compel her to forget Damon.

Alaric is back in the land of the living and teaching Occult Studies at Whitmore. Tyler is a new student with his past werewolf rage issues. He is also definitely crushing on Liv. Luke and Liv are sick of everyone blaming them for everything.

Stefan has gone off the radar, claiming to look for leads. Really he has just checked out and can't deal. He shatters his phone when he can't face the calls he is getting from his friends anymore. He has finally, truly lost his brother and he doesn't want to face anyone or anything. 

Jeremy is drinking, playing video games all day, and hooking up with random girls. So Jeremy.

Everyone is just trying to figure out how to move forward. Lastly, Bonnie and Damon are hidden away in a cabin.

Bringing back one person from death is a nice surprise or twist, but when you keep on doing it, not only does it make future character's deaths cheaper, but it also makes the first instances of bringing someone back from the dead less impactful, too. Anyway I was hoping more from a season opener and maybe think this show is going to limp to the finish. This episode felt like they didn't really now where to take things after last season's finale and they're trying to be too heavy handed with the almost schizophrenic nature of everything. I decided to hold off a few weeks and wait until I could binge watch the show, but after this episode I was kinda bummed Last note, there was some great music in this one. I loved how they used “From The Wreckage Build A Home” by the Wind and The Wave when Elena walks to the crypt and narrates that she has chosen to be a doctor, and also it was cool to hear Alt-J's "Hunger of the Pine" when Caroline calls Stefan and tells him she’s not giving up and wants everyone together again...but it's kinda lame how just the music and the last scene are the only two things that really stood out to me, I used to love how action-packed this show was.

Oh my! Looks like Damon and Bonnie are back but have lost their memory? Could that be? Eek! Can't wait 'till next week. From next weeks sneak peak it looks like Alaric does make Elena forget Damon and then tries to make her remember again.....Is that what everyone else understood?

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 it...in our own way.

Elena
