We bet “The Vampire Diaries” fans around the world are still reeling from the Season 5 finale. Some even claimed that they were emotionally wrecked, like we were.
Recap: Of all the dead people who returned from the Other Side, Damon doesn’t. In the last scene, he and Bonnie held hands as the Other Side appeared to crumble. Then, the screen went white.
And that was the end of it.
The good news is that somehow, Stefan was briefly reunited with his bff, Lexi. Also, a notable character, Alaric, managed to walk out of the Other Side before it crumbled. What about the usually Carebear-like Caroline’s bad ass streak (when she snapped Luke’s neck), you ask? We couldn’t be any prouder of her.
But here’s the thing: what happens now? Will Stefan finally take Caroline out on a date? Is Elena going to spiral out of control in her dark place once again now that Damon and Bonnie are presumably “dead”? What does Alaric’s return mean for the Gilbert family?
According to “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer and writer extraordinaire, Caroline Dries, come Season 6 of the TV series, we’ll see the effects the Markos exile has had on everyone. While it seems like Damon and Bonnie could be gone forever, she lets slip that we’ll definitely still be seeing them in Season 6.
As for Stefan and Caroline, well, she said:
Her (Caroline’s) feelings for Stefan are (at the conscious level right now) friend feelings. I personally feel like she’s not quite sure what she’s feeling. It’s all types of confusing. Lots of grey area. Stefan is her friend. Elena loved Stefan. Elena’s her best friend. Kind of a no-fly zone, which is why I think that if she has had any more-than-friend feelings she’s pushed them away or convinced herself otherwise. The feelings behind the feelings are something we get to explore in Season 6 as we watch how her relationship with Stefan plays out in the wake of the finale.
She also teased Alaric’s return to “The Vampire Diaries” and said, “We are very excited about Alaric’s return and plan to incorporate him in Elena’s life hoping to give a type of parental touchstone to her (something she lost when she lost him).”
“I can’t go in too much detail without giving things away but the events of the finale were beyond devastating and ripple effects will be felt and change the dynamic of the show”, she added.
Gosh. The suspense is killing us. We can’t wait to see what Season 6 of “The Vampire Diaries” will hold for us all! October 2014 won’t come any sooner.
