The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Who Will #SaveBamon?

at .  Updated at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries cast and crew gathered at Comic-Con today for a panel discussion with an auditorium full of rabid fans - and, yes, it included Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham.

The stars - whose characters were seemingly killed off on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale - walked on stage holding hands, much to the extreme delight of those in attendance.

They joked about starting the trend of #SaveBamon to bring back Bonnie and Damon, although it's rather clear these two will remain at the center of events on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

But the premiere will jump ahead four months, with family and friends assuming Bonnie and Damon are dead and gone.

“It’s been enough time for everyone to make some big choices in their life,” said executive producer Julie Plec, at the show’s Comic-Con. “Some are doing it very well, and some are not doing it very well at all.”

Elena, for instance, is "definitely not in a happy place. She has a strange, confusing way of dealing with her grief,” Nina Dobrev said.

Other tidbits and spoilers of interest from the panel:

  • Alaric will be “be living outside of Mystic Falls, having compelled his way into a teaching job at the local university,” a returning Matt Davis said.
  • And he must be getting a love interest! “If anyone deserves a little naughtiness, it’s Prof. Saltzman,” Plec laughed.
  • Paul Wesley disagrees, though: he thinks Stefan is ready for some as well. With a certain bubbly blonde? "Stefan’s been pretty good. He deserves some action," the actor said.
  • With Alaric and Elena (who will grow especially close this fall) unable to enter Mystic Falls, it will make it very “complicated” for the two to help Jeremy deal with the loss of Bonnie.
  • Is there a chance at all for Stefan and Elena will to end up back together? “Right now, the love between Damon and Elena is so strong, and the friendship between Stefan and Elena has grown so strong" that the answer is basically no, said Plec.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 airs on Thursday, October 2 at 8/7c.

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.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
