After five seasons on The Vampire Diaries, is the show's sole mortal Matt Donovan ready to leave his vampire friends behind?
"Initially those questions of whether you're pro-human or equal opportunity would've been hard to make," Zach Roerig told TVGuide.com during our recent visit to the show's set. "But now he's seen enough terrible violence and seen his friends commit these terrible acts [and] he's had a long enough time to distance himself. I think Matt realizes he just wanted a normal life and the only reason he's had to go through all this is because he's been such a dedicated friend. We all face that in life, where so many strikes happen against a friend and at some point you have to let them go and move on. I think that's where Matt is."<

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!

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.

Change is coming to The Vampire Diaries.
The CW show's fifth season wrapped up by executing a plan to save the Other Side. After getting all The Travelers in one place, and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) setting up a gas leak, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), with Elena (Nina Dobrev) in tow, crashed through the Mystic Grill causing a massive explosion that killed all parties involved. Once on the Other Side, while Liv (Penelope Mitchell) enacted a resurrection spell, Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Alaric (Matt Davis) were able to cross back through...
The Vampire Diaries villain Enzo may be dead, but his revenge is only just beginning.
After learning that the love of his life, Maggie (Heather Hemmens), was killed by his own best friend Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) flipped the 'ol humanity switch so he could exact retribution without a care in the world. After battling it out with Stefan (Paul Wesley), Enzo died, but fortunately for him, he can still make moves from the crumbling other side — and no one, not even Caroline (Candice Accola), is necessarily safe.
