It's holiday time on The Vampire Diaries, but with Bonnie gone and a crazy psychopath on the loose, there's not much to celebrate.
Although Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) came thisclose to getting their girl Bonnie (Kat Graham) back, the two were brought back to reality when Kai (Chris Wood) forced Liv (Penelope Miller) to stop her spell and destroyed the ascendant. Instead of a long-awaited reunion, Bonnie was left once again alone on the porch where the three had planned to meet.

Postmortem: The Vampire Diaries boss breaks down that final scene
In the episode, Bonnie (Kat Graham), Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) return to their high school days in a flashback set in the show's first season in 2009. The scene will feature a big holiday gathering, and since we were on hand for the filming, we can promise ...
[Spoiler alert: The following interview reveals important plot points from Thursday's episode of The Vampire Diaries. Read at your own risk!]
The Vampire Diaries staged an epic homecoming on Thursday, and in more ways than one.
"The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" turned out to be quite the bloody affair. But while Tyler (Michael Trevino) accidentally caused a deadly turn of events at the Whitmore College event, over in the '90s, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) finally achieved some success with their own planned homecoming as the trapped Salvatore finally escaped — sadly, without Bonnie by his side. How will Damon's return affect Elena (Nina Dobrev), who's had her memories of their love erased? Will he snap Stefan (Paul Wesley) out of his funk? Does Bonnie still have a chance at her own return? Executive producerCaroline Dries answers all of those burning questions and more!
Candice Accola and Joe King
Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola and The Fray guitarist Joe King got married in New Orleans over the weekend.
Vampire Diaries fans certainly breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the Season 6 premiere when we learned that Damon Salvatore was alive, but we sure as hell won't be satisfied until he returns from, well, wherever he is.
The Vampire Diaries boss answers our biggest burning questions
Absent from nearly the entire hour, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) finally emerged in the final moments, giving the audience just a few clues as to their whereabouts — somehow in the '90s. But even if one or both somehow return, it won't be for several episodes, leaving the series devoid of some of our favorite things.

Where exactly are The Vampire Diaries' Bonnie and Damon? Viewers are finally about to get that highly anticipated answer.
"We'll figure it out in the next episode," executive producer Caroline Dries told a small group of reporters following a screening of the Season 6 premiere. "They're discovering it along with the audience. [The final scene was] to tease people [and say], 'Don't worry we haven't forgotten about them.'"
Nina Dobrev, Marco James
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.
