Vampire Diaries Season 6 Premiere Title Revealed — “I’ll Remember”
Two months until the Season 6 premiere of The Vampire Diaries, and we’re scooping up any and all spoilers we can about the October 2nd episode. The latest exciting news? The episode will be called “I’ll Remember.” What does the title tell us about the much-anticipated ep? We speculate below.
The more we learn about the Season 6 premiere of TVD, the more excited we get. How does this latest spoiler shape what we know about the ep? Well, we already know that it will pick up several months after the events of the Season 5 finale, with all of our TVDers dealing with the apparent deaths of Bonnie and Damon in their own ways. Most obviously, this title refers to the way that tragedy still shapes the people they loved — most especially Elena and Stefan. They remember, even if they might want to forget.
Julie Plec told TVLine regarding Elena’s well-being: “She’s trying, and I won’t necessarily say she’s succeeding. She’s got some complicated coping mechanisms that are making her be things and do things and act in ways that we wouldn’t normally expect from her.” As for Stefan, Julie teases that he “has made some very big choices about how he wants to live his life in the wake of his brother’s death. That’s part of the first round of reveals of where our characters are.”
As for other implications of the title, we think the theme of remembrance will also apply to whatever’s going down in Mystic Falls — after all, the tragedies of the Season 5 finale did not just apply to our favorite characters, but to the community as a whole. When we catch back up with the townsfolk, Mystic Falls is still magic-free, which means no supernatural characters can enter it. But that doesn’t seem to be enough for the people of Mystic Falls, given that Season 6 villain Tripp is “a strong and disciplined head of a community militia and surrogate father to his young trainees who will do anything to protect his town.” This militia presumably also remembers the events of the Season 5 finale, and it will most likely shape the lengths to which this Tripp will reach to keep this town “safe.”
