Audience Reviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 6

  • Mar 21, 2022
    While still maintaining creativity in terms of the shows mythology, the show continues to draw in viewers, which I credit mostly to the development of Bonnie and Damon's friendship which one can't help but love and admire. To critically analyse every aspect of the show, like it would for any piece of television for that matter, takes away from its enjoyment. Simply admiring and enjoying this season, and this entire show will leave you with a deep love, like I myself have, for The Vampire Diaries.

    I'ts good anyway! Good acting guys
  • Jul 31, 2020
    It has no idea what to do with its characters anymore.
  • Apr 23, 2020
    The 6th outing of The Vampire Diaries is surprisingly fresh with no intentions of holding back tragedy. The departure of Nina Dobrev's Elena was very risky but also felt complete.
  • Dec 23, 2019
    IT was a sad season which i liked
  • Jan 06, 2019

  • May 12, 2017
    I gotta say that Season 6 is truly one of my favorite seasons of the show, yeah maybe the writing isn’t as strong as before but the creators do with what they can to build this world even more. More losses, more new enemies, and more new emotions colliding. After the Other Side fell apart Bonnie and Damon saw a white light and an uncertain future. Will they end up in a heaven of sorts? The Travelers also put up an anti-magic barrier so that anything supernatural will be affected if they enter Mystic Falls. Everyone’s lives have changed, not necessarily for the better. Months go by and Elena is going to be a doctor. She’s in her sophomore year at Whitmore but she feels such immense pain from losing Damon. If only it was that easy to forget everything about him. Elena starts seeing a student named Liam that makes a bit of the normal she’s been longing for. For Damon though he would rather suffer in agony and heartbreak than forget every moment with Elena. Bonnie and Damon are trapped in a certain purgatory and they’re not alone. It’s a prison world that repeats the same day over and over again in 1994 which leads to Damon remembering something important from that time. They meet Kai. Bonnie could help them get back to the real world. They need a relic called an Ascendant to harness the power of the eclipse. Kai reveals that he killed his whole family and the Gemini Coven punished him by creating the prison Bonnie and Damon are in. Kai can also absorb magic from others. Bonnie makes a big sacrifice for Elena and Damon. Back in 1994 Kai tried to kill Liv and Luke to be the leader of the coven. Twins are in line to lead the Gemini. The twins have to merge their magic by their 22nd birthday but only 1 of them can live. Kai escapes to the real world and ends up becoming more powerful than ever. Can he be stopped? Alaric is back and teaching at Whitmore. He’s still a vampire though. But after crossing the town line all the magic is stripped away. A doctor named Jo comes in. She falls in love with Alaric. She’s a member of the Gemini Coven as well and she can’t be compelled. Jo is really Liv and Luke’s sister who tried to protect them from Kai. Jo and Kai are twins as well. Things certainly change so much more when a wedding and a pregnancy are announced. Bonnie finally makes it back to the real world and she gives Damon the cure to vampirism. Should he give it to Elena so she can have the life she deserves? Will they still be together if she ages and he doesn’t? Or will she live forever with him? If that isn’t enough Stefan shows Damon what human life would be like and what it would be if he was still a vampire. Is either life better? If Elena takes the cure, Damon must make the ultimate decision of his entire life. Matt is training to become a cop to serve and protect the town he loves. One of his trainers Tripp is actually one of the founding families of Mystic Falls. He feels that vampires should be eradicated altogether even Matt’s friends. Damon has flashbacks of Lily who supposedly died. Things get way more surreal when his mother is alive and well and in a 1903 prison world. Lily opens up that she became a vampire and a Ripper so the witches imprisoned her after she lost control. Their father was a monster the boys had to suffer with. She couldn’t see her kids again fearing she’d kill them. She intends to free her new “family” that are Heretics (vampires who have magic and can siphon it on their own). They too were imprisoned by the Gemini Coven. It’s heartbreaking to see that she favors them more than her own flesh and blood. Tyler is enjoying being human since he’s not a hybrid anymore. Liv may be falling for him. Tyler and Liv bond and learn to cope with the merge. After Kai comes back with a vengeance Tyler loses something dear to him but gains something else in return. Some strange girl named Monique shows up as well. She claims to be Sarah Salvatore, the niece of Damon and Stefan. Is she telling the truth? Caroline is hurt by Stefan leaving. She may even have feelings for him; after all she did want to be with him back when they first met. Stefan just wanted to start over and have a regular life. Unfortunately Caroline faces a horrible truth about her mother being sick. The show says goodbye to one of its best supporting characters and it devastates Caroline to the point where she wants to shut off her humanity do deal with the grief. She even drags down Stefan with her. Is she better off this way? Can she and Stefan still have a thing in the future? Enzo returns from the Other Side as well and wants to cause all sorts of trouble. He is jealous of Stefan’s respect, love and ability to come out on top despite his mistakes. Enzo is then shocked to see Lily because they’ve met before and it turns out she was the one who turned him in 1903. Jeremy misses Bonnie; he’s been through so much. So it makes since he makes a big change for himself. Maybe he can finally find a life of his own away from Mystic Falls. If not a lot more we still learn plenty of life lessons from Season 6: Brothers don’t give up on one another. We find a way to keep going. Maybe we’d rather suffer in agony and pain than forget. Life is too short immortal or not. Love always requires a leap of faith. Falling for someone means being vulnerable, giving up control. Loving someone doesn’t mean you have to be in love with them. Then the most heartbreaking decision ever then comes along during the finale. Elena is put under a sleeping curse meaning that supposedly this is the end for Nina Dobrev. This is the point where like so many fans I myself was so awestruck with the show losing its most influential character. I’ve loved Elena since day 1. I will miss her deeply and it’s hard to imagine Mystic Falls without her. Season 6 says goodbye to several people on the show so who knows when we’ll see any of them again. How will Stefan and Damon make it through Mystic Falls without its main star? Will the evil ever be defeated? What else lies in store for Season 7 besides the looming threat of the Heretics? At this point many viewers would tune out but Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson still haven’t lost any of their staying power. I’m still attached to this show so much.

    The Vampire Diaries' sixth season delivers exciting new adventures as the show expands its mythology to include new realms and new types of supernatural beings. This season Elena and her friends struggle to adjust to living in a magic free Mystic Falls; meanwhile Damon and Bonnie find themselves stuck in a mystical prison world that's perpetually repeating the same day (May 10, 1994) over and over again, and is home to a psychopathic witch from the Gemini Coven. Additionally, there are some interest character subplots, including Matt being torn between his friends and a new vampire hunter that's come to town, Caroline dealing with her mother's terminal cancer, and Enzo vowing to ruin Stefan's life for giving up on Damon. Candice Accola and Ian Somerhalder really standout this season, and give some incredible performances. The writing is also rather good; as it deals with the show's complicated mythologies especially well and brings several character arcs to a close. And, the season finale is quite powerful. The Vampire Diaries has come a long way in six seasons, and now stands poised to take the next step in its evolution.
