Vampire Diaries fans have seen Elena Gilbert grieve, but when Season 6 premieres, she’ll have seemingly moved on from losing the love of her life, Damon.
“One of the big questions you’ll be asking when we get back is how did she pick up the pieces?” executive producer Julie Plec told TVGuide.com. “Or did she pick up the pieces at all? When we come back, several months have passed and Elena has returned to her life at school and seems to be doing well, but the mystery is really how well is she doing? 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.”
But Elena (Nina Dobrev) isn’t the only one reeling from Season 5′s finale that left Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) trapped on the Other Side as it was about to disintegrate. Stefan (Paul Wesley) lost his brother; Caroline (Candice Accola), a best friend; Tyler (Michael Trevino) lost his hybrid status; Alaric (Matt Davis) returned from the dead; and perhaps worst of all, Mystic Falls was stripped of magic. Where does the group go from here? As the show resumes filming in Atlanta, Plec spills some scoop.
How long will it be before we find out where Damon and Bonnie have been and presumably when they’ll be back?
Julie Plec: The answer of what happened is part of the season-long mythology, but the mystery of where they are is going to be asked very quickly and answered soon enough to not be frustrating. Read More at TV GUIDE
