With Stefan (Paul Wesley) in the land of the living and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) somewhere else, it may not seem like we’ll be getting Salvatore brother bonding when The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 6. However, Ian told Entertainment Weekly that Damon and Stefan will be reuniting sometime soon. Read on for the deets!


“I had some really great scenes with Paul not too long ago, like last week,” Damon told the entertainment news outlet. “You definitely see some great stuff with those boys. It’s good when they’re not at one another’s throats.” Um, color us surprised. We thought it’d be a while before we saw these two together, but it sounds like their reunion will be happening sooner rather than later. What gives?

As far as we see it, there a few reasons for this imminent reunion:

  1. Damon and Bonnie find a way back from whatever existential plane they’re hanging out on soonish.
  2. Stefan and Damon have some sort of connection that allows them to communicate despite the fact Damon is somewhere else. Hey, if Elena can hallucinate-chat with Damon with the aid of some witchy voodoo, than anything is possible!
  3. We’ll be getting some more Brothers Salvatore flashbacks. This totally aligns with our theory that Stefan might be either literally or figuratively retracing the places he and Damon have traveled together over the years.

What do you think is up with Damon and Stefan’s reunion? Are you surprised to hear they will be getting along so well? Sound off in the comments below!

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