Thanks to TV Guide, we get a behind the scenes look at the sets of TVD with Michael Malarkey as our guide!

Anything new on The Vampire Diaries? — Samantha
Expect Damon and Alaric’s bromance to hit a serious speed bump when Damon angers Alaric. How serious is it? One word: fisticuffs! In other heartbreaking news, Bonnie, who has thus far stayed strong in her crazy situation, will be dealt another crushing blow that leads to a breakdown.
Via TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:
Question: Damon found Bonnie’s bear, anything else you can tease that’s ahead for “Bamon” fans on The Vampire Diaries?- Renee
Ausiello: Let’s just say you’re not crazy for seeing a strong connection between Bonnie and Damon, Renee. Despite Elena expressing a “glimmer” of hope for a romantic reunion, Damon is still focused on the mission at hand: Bring back Bonnie. And Ian Somerhalder, for one, wouldn’t be surprised if things turn spicy once the Bennett witch returns. “There’s an extraordinarily thin line between love and hate,” Somerhalder notes. “Due to the fact that these two hated each other, and had so many connections … it only seemed appropriate that they would be given a chance, due to the dynamics of their relationship.”
Question: Do you have anything on my favorite Vampire Diaries character, Tyler? —Jeanette
Ausiello: What a coincidence, Jeanette, Tyler is one of Andy Swift’s favorite TVDcharacters, too! (Definitely in the Top 20, at least.) Anyway, Michael Trevino says Liv’s current dilemma will take up most of Tyler’s time. “He’s there for Liv and wants to protect her and make sure she’s not getting into trouble,” Trevino says. “She’s being so tough and a little bitchy at times towards him. He’s not used to that, so I like that Tyler’s having to deal with that this season. But we will see their relationship become stronger. He’s really smitten with that girl.”

TV Guide has some Vampire Diaries Scoop, check it out!
I am in need of some Damon-and-Elena scoop on The Vampire Diaries. — Felicia
While stuck-in-the-’90s Damon will be reluctant to believe Bonnie’s crossword theory, they quickly find clear evidence that proves they’re most certainly not alone. But will the person actually be able to help them? Meanwhile, look for Alaric’s compulsion to take immediate effect on Elena, whose new outlook, especially regarding Damon, shocks even her best friend.
Check out the latest Vampire Diaries scoop from TVLine and TV Guide.
Question: Got any scoop on Enzo from The Vampire Diaries? — Amy
Ausiello: Enzo makes his triumphant return this Thursday, and he’s a man on a mission. “He’s his same mischievous, slightly conniving self, but he’s also one of the only ones actively trying to figure out what happened to Damon and to see if he can get him back,” Michael Malarkey says. And even though Enzo and Damon didn’t end things on the best of terms before they both died, it sounds like that’s all water under the bridge. “Their friendship spans over quite a number of years,” Malarkey adds. “He just wants his buddy back.”
Via TV Guide’s Mega Buzz:
Are Bonnie and Damon really stuck in the ’90s on The Vampire Diaries? — Lindy
Well, if the music and Damon’s outfit didn’t clue you in, the ’90s song-inspired episode titles have been hinting at it for weeks! But don’t worry about Bonnie and Damon. Despite suffering some I Am Legend-caliber boredom, they’ve become like an old married couple: cooking, grocery shopping, even doing crossword puzzles to pass the time. They’ll snap out of it, though, and back into action at the first glimmer of hope for a return to Mystic Falls.
TVLine and TV Guide had a chance to talk with EP, Caroline Dries about last night’s episode, and she answers some of our burning questions and what’s to come next week!
MAN ABOUT TOWN | Thriving in a supernatural-less Mystic Falls, Matt has found a “father figure” in Colin Ferguson’s community protection leader Tripp. But this being The Vampire Diaries, “not everyone is who they say they want to be,” the EP warns. “But he’ll ultimately become an interesting layered, dynamic character that’s not necessarily a good guy or bad guy. He actually represents a normal person’s point of view on the whole vampire world.” As for Matt’s roommate, Jeremy, “he’s going to try to find some meaning in these first few episodes,” Dries says. “But he hasn’t hit his rock bottom.” Yikes.
Via TV Guide:
With Stefan and Damon gone, is the love triangle gone too?
Dries: I can tease we definitely keep the love stories alive. They may not play out in a traditional way, but they’ll feel very satisfying. I think it’s done in a way that feels fresh for a show in Season 6 that has had the same characters and this love triangle for a long time. I don’t really call it a triangle because Stefan has become more of a soul friend to Elena, but those two are still very connected. It’s more how do we maintain Damon and Elena’s love story while he’s not present? I think we do a cool job of it.
TV Guide has six teases from Nina Dobrev about tomorrow night’s season premiere, here’s a preview, then check out the rest over at TV Guide.
For the first time, viewers will see what Elena is like sans any Salvatores in her life. “I’m excited to see her start this new life in college and see how she copes without the Salvatores and how long that lasts and if it makes her realize that being away from them is good or bad,” Dobrev says. “It’s interesting to see her become her own independent person.”
EW chatted both Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, check out what they had to say and read the rest over at EW.
As for Damon, he won’t exactly find himself grieving for anyone or anything. As Ian Somerhalder put it, “He’s pissed off. They’re stuck in a place they don’t want to be, and Damon’s fiercely loyal. He feels the need to get back to his family. They’re trying everything. They’re Scooby-Doo-ing that sh– like crazy.”
However, don’t expect Damon and Bonnie’s situation to be devoid of fun. “You never really get to see these two together because they do have a lot of fun together,” he said. “Damon’s a goofy man. He likes to have fun, and Bonnie doesn’t take s–t from anyone anymore. She’s just been hammered for years by all these sort of supernatural elements and she just doesn’t take it anymore. It’s awesome.”
E!Online, TV Guide and TVLine has some spoilery goodness for us, check it!
Confession: I was the biggest Eureka fan, so I am so excited to see Colin Ferguson on TVD! What can we expect?
Just some male bonding between him and Matt Donovan! “He came about because we wanted to show Matt thriving in Mystic Falls without supernaturals,” EP Caroline Dries previewed of Ferguson’s character, Tripp. “We wanted to give him a father figure, coach-type of guy, so that’s where Tripp come out of.” Of course, this is The Vampire Diaries, so Tripp will have his secrets, but he’ll “ultimately become an interesting, layered, dynamic character that’s not necessarily good guy or bad guy.”
Via TV Guide’s Mega Buzz:
Got any Vampire Diaries scoop for the premiere? — Jenny
While Elena copes with the loss of Damon in her own way, her brother’s grief expresses itself a little differently. Specifically, he’s locking lips with a mysterious new lady who rubs Matt the wrong way.
Any more scoop on Originals-Vampire Diaries crossover? — Lisa
After we heard that Nina Dobrev will be making an appearance as Tatia, we pressed Originals star Joseph Morgan for details. And it sounds like a very juicy flashback involving Tatia, Esther and her two sons. “You’re going to get insight into Klaus and Esther’s relationship, but also Elijah and Esther’s relationship and what happened back then,” Morgan said. “We’re grateful for Nina coming over… so we could tell that story because I think it needed to be told and it definitely informed who the brothers are today.”
Via TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:
Question: I’m still Team Stelena on The Vampire Diaries. Is there any hope? —Allison
Ausiello: Never give up hope, Allison! Elena’s emotions are all over the place in Season 6 and I have it on good authority that her love life is going to be far from dormant. In fact, I hear she’ll be locking lips with a handsome fella in Episode 3 — and his name does not rhyme with Shmamon.
Question: Any intel on Nina Dobrev’s crossover to The Originals? —Jacob
Ausiello: How’s this intel for you, Jacob? When asked if Tatia’s scenes with Elijah and Klaus would be “steamy,” or if they’d be all talk, Nina Dobrev answered, “A little bit of both, in different capacities. … I’m always going to be in a love triangle. I can’t escape it, so I might as well just accept it.”
Thank to TV Guide, we have a brand new preview clip from The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere, “I’ll Remember”.

Teddy1308: Any chance Stefan and Caroline might be a thing this season on The Vampire Diaries?
Do you want the bad news or the terrible news? The bad news is that there’s no plan in sight for any kind of Stefan/Caroline romance. The worse news is that their frienship might be Kaputzville too! At least, that’s what’s up for the beginning of the season, according to the show’s Big Boss Momma Bossy Pants (that’s not her real titlem and she is anything but bossy), Julie Plec, who tells me: “Caroline isn’t going to let Stefan off the hook very easily. In fact, his determination to move on and start a new life after the loss of his brother may ultimately ruin the friendship he’s built with her over the years.” So. Not Cool. Unless you are a Klaus and Caroline or Tyler and Caroline shipper, at which point you are probably chanting “nanny nanny boo boo” right now.
MichelleGr: What’s up for Alaric on TVD this season?
Some juicy storylines, with a sweet side of little angst, of course. Plec teases, “Alaric is having a hard time reconciling his former self with his new vampire identity. And when he meets a fascinating and smart new woman, it makes it even more difficult.” Feast your eyes on the first pic of Alaric with his new woah-man.

Any Vampire Diaries scoop for me? — Brittany
Sure! As our boy Matt becomes more involved in Mystic Falls, he’ll realize that Colin Ferguson’s Tripp has an important family connection to the town. Just wait until you hear Tripp’s real name. Then it’ll make more sense that he’s keeping quiet about some extracurricular activities that could put Matt’s closest friends in extreme peril.
We’ve got some more scoop, this time from TV Guide‘s Mega Buzz!
Any Damon-Elena scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Meredith
Until the duo is reunited — which doesn’t seem likely to happen for a while — there isn’t much to tease on that front. On the other hand, the tension between Caroline and Stefan will come to a head early on when our favorite blonde finally confronts him about her feelings — and Elena overhears the whole thing! Even though Nina Dobrev told us Elena would be all “awko-taco” about a Stefan-Caroline pairing, you’ll still be surprised by her reaction.
