The season 5 finale only aired a few hours ago, but a marketing poster for "The Vampire Diaries" season 6 was posted to a spoiler website. Normally a poster wouldn't reveal huge clues about the next season, but it includes a character who died. With the inclusion of this character in the poster, fans are pretty sure that one dead character will find his way back. On May 16, the poster was uploaded to Spoiler TV.
The poster includes Damon, Elena and Stefan. On the season finale, Damon and Bonnie were stuck in the Other Side and were apparently sucked away. This is what makes Damon being in the poster so interesting. It definitely makes fans think that Damon will return in "The Vampire Diaries" season 6. But is this poster real? If so, will Damon really come back and if so, how will he return and will Bonnie also appear?
In small print at the bottom of the poster, it tells a little bit of what happened in season 5. Then it states what the focus of season 6 will be. It reads,
"Season five of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES began with Elena ending a passionate summer with Damon, and heading to college with Caroline, without either realizing that Bonnie had died saving Jeremy. As Bonnie's friends brought her back to life, Stefan faced off with his doppleganger Silas, and a human Katherine struggled with mortality and motherhood. Fearing losing his loved ones on the Other Side, Damon made a sacrifice with catastrophic results. Season six will be the story of their battle between good and evil within themselves, and their journey back to each other to reclaim their home."
From the last part of the description, it sounds like season 6 of "The Vampire Diaries" will focus on the characters finding each other. Since Damon and Elena are separated, perhaps the journey of them being in the same world will be the focus? It also talks about them reclaiming their home. WetPaint speculated that the Travelers might still be an issue even though Markos was blown away while in the Other Side, thanks to Lexi.
Some fans commented that the woman in the poster looks more like Katherine than Elena because it resembles a glamour shot. Another person observed that the description didn't say anything about Bonnie finding her way home. Fans will have to wait until "The Vampire Diaries" season 6 airs to find out for sure.
An image search on Google didn't show any other sources for the poster and it couldn't be found on the CW website or any of the social media accounts for the show. A message sent to "The Vampire Diaries" official Facebook page has not been responded to yet.
