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.
