Judging by last week’s, premiere I can already tell this season is going to take us for a ride. Elena is doing witchy drugs to keep seeing Damon, Caroline spent the entire summer with her mother because of the newly drawn city line to where Mystic Falls starts and Stefan is pretty much running away from it all and ignoring Caroline’s 100 million phone calls. Let’s not forget about the rest of the boys though. Alaric is the new professor in town, Jeremy is in complete denial and hooking up with a different girl every night (I’m sorry, how does that differ from most guys?), and Tyler is “dealing” with his anger issues. Just because he’s human doesn’t mean he can’t trigger the curse and start the werewolf cycle all over again.
Meanwhile, Bonnie and Damon are having pancakes with smiley faces?! Where the hell are they? The Other Side is gone! According the trailer they’re lost in time, reliving the same day over and over again. How very Groundhog Day of them.
Also, Elena has turned to Alaric for help forgetting all things Damon. Like literally. He’s going to erase all of her memories of him. WTF?! That’s crazy pants. But then again, if I were sobbing uncontrollably 24/7 and doing witchy drugs to talk to my dead boyfriend, I would probably do the same.
Take a look inside this week’s episode titled “Yellow Ledbetter” with the one and only Julie Plec.
