thevampirediaries_102314_1200_article_story_large

Elena convinces Stefan to take her along to Savannah so she can make sure he’s really happy.  He takes her out to a local bar where they get all cutesy and put on a show for the bar folk: Stefan Cooper proposes to a pregnant Elena Williams.  All seemed great until we find out Stefan is really dealing with the loss of Damon in an unexpected way.  Stefan ends up telling Elena that she had her memories of Damon erased.  Elena takes her own advice and doesn’t have her memories restored just yet.

Jeremy feels resentment that Bonnie sacrificed herself to save all the others.  Alaric is trying to help him move on.

Damon feels remorse for his killing spree on May 10, 1994. He murdered his nephew’s pregnant girlfriend, Gail who turns out to be Sarah’s mother.  We learn that Kai is a really messed up guy and murdered his Coven.  The Gemini Coven banished him to the hell Bonnie and Damon are trapped in, it was created for Kai.  He can’t practice magic but he can consume magic from other witches and threatens to kill them if they don’t agree to take him along.

Trip Fell reveals his secret vampire prison to Matt.  He’s keeping Enzo there and wants to know who bit Sarah.

Ivy is back as a vampire, YAY!

S6E3 – “Welcome to Paradise”

vdp welcome to paradise
Join Krissi, Patrick and Tawny as they discuss, The Vampire Diaries, Season 6 episode 2 “Welcome to Paradise”. Stefan returns to Whitemore in search of Enzo and visits Elena at school. It’s no surprise that Elena is the happiest she’s been in a few years and gets everyone together for a swim party in her attempt of nostalgia since they all have seemed to grow apart over these last 4 months. We learn that Trip Fell has been training his town watch volunteers to be vampire hunters as Jay attempts to kill Stefan in the woods. Even though Enzo saved him, Stefan still wants him dead and leaves him debilated in Trip’s care so he can be driven across Mystic Falls town lines.

Back in the 90’s, Bonnie and Damon are grocery shopping and find further proof that they are not alone. Damon is hestitant to give into the idea, says he’s trapped in his own hell, and doesn’t share in Bonnie’s optimism that they’ll eventually get themselves out of there. We are introduced to Ky who seems even more of a douche bag than Jay the vampire hunter. Was it really his plan all along to torture Damon so Bonnie would regain her magic to get them all out?

The Steroline scenes were pretty harsh but at least Caroline has admitted her true feeling for Stefan and we’ll hang onto that for a while.

S6E2 – Yellow Ledbetter

Play

vdp enzo

Join Krissi, Patrick and Tawny as they discuss The Vampire Diaries, Season 6 episode 2, Yellow Ledbetter. Elena and Alaric take a walk down memory lane while trying to pin point the exact moment she fell in love with Damon so her memories of loving him can be replaced. We get to see all those great scenes of the beginning stages of Delena love.

Caroline and Enzo find Stefan and confront him about abandoning his mission to find a way to bring Damon and Bonnie back. That was the worst dinner date ever for Ivy and unfortunately her last. Enzo has made it his mission to bring misery to Stefan’s life every time he trys to settle into a new life.

Matt isn’t too keen on Jeremy getting cozy with Sarah. They find out she stole the car she came into town with and we find out that that leader of the town watch is part of the Fell founding family. Thomas (aka Trip) Fell is capturing vampires and driving them across Mystic Falls town line to kill them. Also, Jeremy is paying Bonnie’s phone bill and leaving her angry messages which is another interesting way he’s dealing with her death.

Bonnie and Damon are trapped in an empty Mystic Falls not only in the 90’s but they are on repeat….May 10, 1994. Bonnie finds her Grams grimoire and hopes she can reteach herself magic to undo the spell that put them there. After many pancakes, dance parties with Salt n’ Pepa and Pearl Jam, and crossword puzzles, they then realize they are not alone in the Salvatore house. Who do you think is shacking up with them?

TVD I'll Remember

Join Krissi, Patrick, Tawny and guest host Dwight as they discuss the Season 6 premiere of The Vampire Diaires, “I’ll Remember”.  It’s been 4 months and we see how the gang is dealing with the death of Bonnie and Damon.  Since Mystic Falls is still under the Traveler’s spell, Elena, Tyler, Liv, Luke and Alaric have taken up residency at Whitmore College and Alaric is now a professor.  Caroline is in pursuit to find a way to end the Mystic Falls spell.  Stefan went in search for a witch and ended up with a mechanics job, a new girlfriend, ultimately gives up on his search for the witch and comes to terms with his brother’s death thus moving on with his life.

Elena and Jeremy are in denial big time!  Elena deals with the loss by taking a hallucinogenic herb that lets her see Damon while she’s feeding on humans to the point where she’s almost killing them.  Jeremy deals with video games and a different girl every day.  Tyler is learning to cope with all his human rage and Caroline is trying to get through to Stefan since they need each other to get through the loss of Damon and Bonnie.  Alaric is struggling to acclimate to his resurrection as a vampire.  Elena calls upon him to compel her to forget Damon and her love for him.

We finally see Bonnie with real Damon in an alternate reality/universe maybe?  So we know they are OK wherever they are and hopefully they’re devising a plan to come back!!

We missed you TVD and so glad you’re back!
