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.
[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!

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.'"

Class is in session on The Vampire Diaries — except this is one awkward lesson.
On the Season 6 premiere, Professor Saltzman (Matt Davis) is at the head of the class, while Elena (Nina Dobrev) hides behind her book and Liv (Penelope Mitchell) obnoxiously laughs at the day's topic: the occult as it pertains to resurrection.

"Is there something funny, Liv?" Alaric asks.
"More like, ironic," she snarks back. (We have to give her that one considering the events of the Season 5 finale.)

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."
