The Vampire Diaries Season 6: Who Will Die?

Another The Vampire Diaries season is right around the corner, and you know what that means? Plenty of character deaths! Who has the grim reaper marked for death in Season 6 of TVD? Here are our best guesses.

Bonnie. We know, we know. She’s kind of already dead. But not really? Apparently, she and Damon have a chance to make it back from whatever existential plane they’ve found themselves on. The thing is? Though a lot has been made of this “journey back to each other,” there’s no guarantee that both Damon and Bonnie will make it back from this other world. And, if we have to place a bet on which one will make it, we’re giving the edge to Damon.

All of the new characters. Last year, Julie Plec confessed that most new characters are created to die. She actually said that. Of course, there are exceptions. Enzo was new last season, and is now a series regular (for now). The wonder twins, Liv and Luke, are still alive and kicking (for now). Not to mention that, dying on this show isn’t necessarily the end for one’s character. But, still, we’re guessing that about 87 percent of Season 6’s new characters won’t make it to Season 7. Sorry: Tripp, Sarah,Ivy, Jo, Liam, and anyone else we may have forgotten. (Do you really expect us to remember your names when you’ve already been marked for death?)

Tyler. Tyler may still be a generally athletic dude, but he no longer has all of the protective perks that came with being a hybrid. No super healing. No super speed. You get the picture. All he has left is the rage inherent for anyone with a latent werewolf gene, which means he’ll probably be picking fights left and right — and he won’t have his hybrid abilities to protect him. Good news: this means he can still live in the supernatural-free zone known as Mystic Falls. Bad news: he’s totally mortal.

Jeremy. There’s some kind of rule that dictates he die every season, right?

Who do you think will die in Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries? Sound off in the comments below!

Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries premieres Thursday, October 2, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
