The Vampire Diaries' Elena Gilbert might be distraught after losing the love of her life, but she's certainly got a funny way of showing it.
Gone is the girl we saw sobbing over the loss of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) when the "Other Side" crumbled at the end of Season 5. Instead, get ready for an upbeat, albeit somewhat delusional Elena (Nina Dobrev) burying her head in her studies while nursing a new hallucinatory spell problem on the side.
Uh-oh! The first trailer for Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries is here and things aren't looking so good for our favorite vamps.
Of course, that's par for the course in Mystic Falls—or should we say Mystic Falls-adjacent, now that magic no longer works within the town limits? Whatever. Either way, Elena and Co. will certainly be struggling when the series returns on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c.
How will Damon and Bonnie get back from the Other Side? And what exactly is that, anyway?
Those were some of the burning questions that were brought up at The Vampire Diaries panel at Comic-Con moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Damian Holbrook on Saturday. On hand were stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, surprise guest Matt Davis and executive producer Julie Plec to answer fan questions and give an idea of what's ahead.

The sound you just heard was about 4,000 Vampire Diaries fans losing their minds over this perfect video that kicked off the show's panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon. Featuring Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder musing over the fate of their characters, Bonnie and Damon, now that they've been sucked into oblivion, the video hits all the right notes and brings up a few good questions. Will we see a bigger storyline for Tyler? Could he be Elena's new guy? What is Alaric gonna do now that he's alive again? And most importantly, are "Bamon" gone for good? (Don't make us laugh!)
Here's the clip, which we're sure those in the San Diego Convention Center's packed Ballroom 20 will want to check out ASAP, since there is no way they heard most of the jokes over their room-rattling screams.
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."
