When the season 5 finale of "The Vampier Diaries" aired, fans were shocked and upset when it seemed like Damon and Bonnie were gone forever. However, executive producer Julie Plec assured viewers that actor Ian Somerhalder would be back in season 6, at least in some form. It seems that fans are worried once again thanks to a photo that Somerhalder tweeted. On June 1, Digital Spy reported on the photo. Could that photograph reveal Damon's fate in season 6 of "TVD?"
The photo was a gravestone with the name "Damon" on it along with the American flag. Somerhalder added a caption of "Rest in Peace Damon Salvatore. #GameOver :(" The photo has fans worried that Damon is gone permanently or that he will not be brought back on the next season of the vampire series.
Fans should rest assured that Damon will be seen on "The Vampire Diaries" season 6. However, he may not be brought back in his human form. Even though Plec didn't reveal exactly how he would be brought back, she did say that both he and Bonnie would appear. She told TV Line,
"There's a mystery attached to how the [season] ended. Did they die? Did they find peace? Are they still on the Other Side? Does the Other Side still exist? If not, where the hell are they? And will they ever come back?
"Certainly, we will see Ian [Somerhalder] and Kat [Graham] again, but where and in what context? That's part of the mystery of season six."
As for the other characters, it has been reported that Alaric (Matt Davis) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) will also come back next season. Alaric is going to help Elena deal with the loss of Damon and she will help him deal with being a vampire. He isn't going to have an easy time since he will think that being a vampire is "weird."
As for Enzo, it is being teased that he will be a "loose cannon" in season 6. Fans can expect Alaric and Enzo to have some issues. Don't count on the two getting along when the show returns.
Spoiler reports have also revealed that Stefan will be on a character defining journey next season. His best friend for centuries, Lexi, is dead and at peace. However, she might come back in the form of flashbacks. Also, it is being hinted that Stefan and Caroline might start a romance.
Are you looking forward to season 6 of "The Vampire Diaries?" What do you think of the photo of Damon's gravestone? What are your theories on his fate?
