Some time has passed since the events of the Season 4 finale. "We're coming back three months later, so we'lltouch base on what the characters have been doing all summer," says Caroline. "We realize that poor Stefan has been drowning, dying, and coming back to life. But everyone else has been having a totally fun time. Elena and Damon are a super-sexy couple and happy for once. Caroline is ready to start school. Nobody knows that Bonnie is dead, so it's bliss, but then there's Stefan just dying."
We’re sure Delena fans will feel a bit robbed at missing three months of Damon-Elena dating cuteness, but Nina Dobrev said at Comic-Con that the two will try to make their relationship work.
As for everyone else, we can’t wait to see Caroline frantically preparing for college... and hopefully we’ll at least be able to see Bonnie on the Other Side.
