“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”
Thursdays (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW
Season five of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES began with a sense of hope for Elena (Nina
Dobrev). After a passionate summer with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena headed to Whitmore
College with Caroline (Candice Accola), not knowing that Bonnie (Kat Graham) sacrificed her
life to save Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). As Bonnie’s friends fought to bring her back to life as
the Anchor to the Other Side, Stefan (Paul Wesley) had to face-off with his doppelganger Silas,
and a newly human Katherine (Nina Dobrev) struggled with mortality and motherhood.
Damon’s relationship with Elena was put to the test when Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey),
an old vampire friend from Damon’s past, revealed he was still alive and looking for revenge.
Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch
tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. Finally, with
time running low until the inevitable collapse of The Other Side, Damon and Bonnie made the
ultimate sacrifice in order to bring back their friends.
Now, months after this devastating tragedy, everyone is dealing with the loss of their
loved ones in different ways, some more destructively than others. What happened to Bonnie
and Damon, and if they can even be saved, remains a mystery. Meanwhile, their beloved
hometown of Mystic Falls continues to be a magic-free zone, protected by a mysterious new
community watch program. If there’s any hope of salvaging their former lives, our heroes must
find a way to push through their grief and band together. This season will explore themes of
loss, denial and what it means to move on in the face of immortality, ultimately begging the ageold
question – can you ever really go home again?
