The Season 6 premiere of The Vampire Diaries may be months away, but the TVD cast and crew are back on set this week to film the much-anticipated return. What does director Jeffrey Hunt have to say about the episode? Read on to find out!

“#TVD fans episode 601 is going to take you on a emotional roller coaster you may not be ready for. suggest you start preparing now,” Jeffrey tweeted Thursday, piquing our excitement. Although, as if we didn’t start preparing for the Season 6 premiere as soon as the Season 5 finale aired!


We can only imagine the Season 6 premiere will be a heartbreaker. Though at least several months will have passed since the close of Season 5, we’re sure our TVDers will still be dealing with the aftermath of their loved ones apparent deaths — a tragedy made less heartbreaking, but considerably more angsty by the realization that Damon and Bonnie are still out there somewhere. Though we’re not sure exactly what form their return from the bright white light will take, we know that their characters will be a part of Season 6, a season billed to be about our heroes’ “journey back to each other.” Commence scenes of Damon and Elena gazing up at the same moon, thousands of miles and/or several realities apart...now.

Are you emotionally prepared for the Season 6 premiere? Can one ever be emotionally prepared for a TVD episode? Sound off in the comments below!
