We’ve spent the summer speculating on what might have happened to Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) on The Vampire Diaries. The two were seemingly blinked out of existence in the Season 5 finale, but will be back in Season 6. How will that work?


According to TV Guide, the mystery of where Bonnie and Damon ended up will be answered by the end of the second episode, which sounds great to us! TVD has never been a show that dangles unanswered questions in front of us for long. It answers questions quickly while throwing us the next plot twist. We see no reason to stop that tradition. There are enough shows on TV that skew the other way.

So, what do we know about Bonnie and Damon’s home-away-from-home? “Although the setting may look familiar, the duo is definitely in a place that's foreign to them. Perhaps it's not the where that matters at all!” TV Guide teased. Hmmm…might TVD be pulling an Outlander on us? Time travel is all the rage right now, and the vampire drama wouldn’t be the first to use it as a plot device well into its series run. Lost pulled a similar trick.

The more we think about it, the more into this time travel theory we are. TVD has always been a show that rocks the flashback, but the device has become less relevant in recent seasons. Bonnie and Damon’s trip to an earlier (or later) era could bring the flashback (or flashforward) back in interesting ways. We’re casting our vote for time travel.
