Losing someone you love is hard. Losing two people you love is even more difficult. And in the newest promo for season 6 of The Vampire Diaries, we get a deeper look into how everyone is dealing with the deaths of Bonnie and Damon.
For starters, Stefan seems to have found a new love interest, and Jeremy has chosen to cope with the help of Damon’s old friend, alcohol. As for Elena? Well, she’s feeding on people and doing everything she can to see Damon. And in a pretty amazing throwback to the season 3 finale, she thanks him for giving her a love that “consumed” her, passion, adventure, and even a little danger.
The biggest red flag of the promo: If there aren’t vampires in Mystic Falls anymore, then who/what is killing the campers?
The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
