News & Interviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 6
Nina Dobrev's departure from "The Vampire Diaries" couldn't have been more perfectly played if the entire cast had held hands and jumped into a bottomless pool of teenage melodrama.
It really felt like it wasn't enough time to bid farewell to such a beloved character.
I like that Elena gets why Damon hid the cure from her. I think Elena a few season ago would have made a big deal about, which showed some character growth.
Knowing Nina Dobrev was exiting the series in the Season 6 finale quelled what would have been an otherwise suspenseful exit, but the writers did her character justice with a slew of heartbreaking goodbyes and a homage or two to the past.
The sixth season has been seen by many as a return to form, clawing its way back from a dodgy fourth and fifth season and doing so with a renewed energy and focus on character over convoluted plot and needless romantic strife.
Audience Reviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 6
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.
