speculation for TVD s6 premiere  
So, this is based on an instagram Nina Dobrev posted about 3 weeks ago which I can't find right now, but I'll describe behind the cut and the episode title of the premiere, again, I'll put behind the cut. (And this should be the extent of my being spoiled for the premiere hopefully.)

So in the instagram pic that was from filming the premiere, you can see that Elena has the red stripe in her hair which Katherine, of course, got rid of. So, I'm thinking that, yeah, we're gonna get flashbacks of Elena and Damon's summer of love! Woohoo! Which would make sense that Elena is thinking back on that time. Or at least that we'll be definitely getting flashbacks of when Damon and Elena were together and that's how we'll get Damon/Elena scenes even when they are separated. So, WOOHOO!

Secondly, the episode title is apparently "I'll Remember." Now that fits the Elena flashback theme, but I was also wondering if maybe florencia7 is right and Damon and Bonnie are going to have amnesia. Maybe, just maybe what Grams did is send Bonnie back to Earth, but with no memories and that will be the case with Damon and Bonnie both--since he was with her, duh (much like in florencia7's story--which you should check out, it's pretty good!). Hmmm...........

I didn't think they'd go there, but with that title, I'm wondering now. Just wondering.

ETA: I forgot to put this in here (which I meant to, but sicko1012's post reminded me. They briefly touched upon this with Stefan's memory loss arc in season 05, but the show tends to do that. Briefly do an arc and then do a longer take with another character in another season. For example, they did it with the possession of Matt/Gregor briefly, then much longer with Elena/Katherine. Did the sire bond with Tyler/Klaus and then did a much fuller exploration with Damon/Elena. I don't think it would be redundant, if it's explored much more richly and thoroughly.

Also, PLEASE don't further spoiler me on anything else in the season. This is all I know and I don't want to know anything else.

Oh my goodness! I saw that instagram photo and I can't believe I didn't think of it before! This would make me insanely happy. I am so glad that you pointed that out because I bet you are right. Maybe they aren't just doing flashbacks from that summer either. Maybe they will also go farther back. I think I saw somewhere on tumblr that the crew was taking the set for the Gilbert house back out. So, maybe we'll get some missing Delena scenes from there too? I hope so. It would be nice to see an array of flashbacks throughout different points of their relationship.

As for the memory loss, the more I read florencia7's fic (which, yes, is wonderful), the more I was curious of the possibility of happening in the show. The only thing though, would the writers really bring in another amnesia storyline when they just did that last season with Stefan? I mean, I think this one would be better (seriously, the only highlight in Stefan's memory loss for me was when he acknowledged an interest in Caroline) and I think they would have more room to expand on it and make it interesting, but at the same time it would seem a little redundant. Well, I guess the writers have done that in the past, but this seems a little too specific and too soon. Its great material for fic, but for the actual show, I don't know.

Sigh, I didn't know that about the Gilbert house. I would have liked not knowing that. Please try not to spoil me on anything else.

I meant to add that part about the Stefan memory loss, but forgot, so thanks for the reminder. They briefly touched upon that in season 05 with his mini-arc, but the show tends to do that. Briefly do an arc and then do a longer take with another character in another season. So, yeah, I could totally see them doing that with Damon and Bonnie in a longer stretch. For example, they did it with the possession of Matt/Gregor briefly, then much longer with Elena/Katherine. Did the sire bond with Tyler/Klaus and then did a much fuller exploration with Damon/Elena. I don't think it would be redundant, if it's explored much more richly and thoroughly.

Oh man I am so sorry, seriously. I always try to respect people's decision to remain spoiler-free, and now I feel like a total shit. Especially since I think I did this to you once before too, back in season 3. I think I missed you saying that Elena's hair, and the episode title, was all that you knew. I've spent entirely too much time on tumblr where I am pretty around people who already know everything. But that's no excuse. I am TRULY sorry.

Yeah, you are probably right. While I personally wouldn't have a problem with it since it seems like a storyline I would enjoy much more this time around. I guess part of me is just worried about the big stink people are going to be making of it. I watch TVD with my dad and I just know I am going to be sitting through episodes with him complaining about it the whole time.
Arabian: Damon13arabian on August 17th, 2014 03:42 am (UTC)
I know it was an accident. And I know how easy it is to forget what are spoilers and what aren't (especially in this age of free-fall spoiler knowledge everywhere) when vague-ish spoilers are talked of everywhere. Cast and crew drop spoiler tidbits in their tweets/instagrams ALL THE TIME (like Nina did in that instagram pic) and then people casually discuss them all over the place. It's why I don't read/do twitter/instagram or tumblr. I just can't without getting spoiled. So I understand that you're going to slip. I should have been more clear and adamant in my post. It happens.

Hopefully, the story will play out in a way that keeps the complaining at bay.

You concur with the prevailing opinion on Tumblr about the flashbacks. About the amnesia, its more split. I don't know what I want to see (something new? Is that even possible at this point?) but I would take amnesia over human - though we'll likely get both!
Arabian: Damon & Elena01arabian on August 12th, 2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
Oh, I definitely believe that Damon is human. I just can't see him not being human with knowing that they were planning on doing that Damon storyline with him having the cure in season 04 and with all of the human tidbits dropped since season 02. Not to mention him unable to lift that thingie that was on Liz, but Alaric could. I'm really looking forward to it personally.

I don't think there any new stories. The newness and good storytelling comes from the characters and the character interaction. That's what I'm looking forward to and I think it will be grand. And since I forgot this part in my original part, adding this here. They did briefly touch upon this with Stefan's memory loss arc in season 05, but the show tends to do that. Briefly do an arc and then do a longer take with another character in another season. For example, they did it with the possession of Matt/Gregor briefly, then much longer with Elena/Katherine. Did the sire bond with Tyler/Klaus and then did a much fuller exploration with Damon/Elena. I don't think it would be redundant, if it's explored much more richly and thoroughly.
Bogwitchbogwitch on August 12th, 2014 12:26 pm (UTC)
I agree with all of that, I just don't want it to happen! At least not for long.
Arabian: Damon05arabian on August 17th, 2014 03:44 am (UTC)
Well, hopefully it will play out in such a way that it will work in such a way that you won't mind how ever long it lasts.
Thoughts= stars I can't fathom into constellations: Delena kiss 1thesicko1012 on August 12th, 2014 05:54 pm (UTC)
Huh, that's another thing that I think I missed. Damon not being able to move the thing off of Liz when Alaric could, I mean. Wait, so are you thinking that he might have died a human milliseconds before the explosion?
Arabian: Damon & Elena41arabian on August 12th, 2014 10:07 pm (UTC)
Clearly, someone--that would be you--did NOT see my post on the finale.

Get thee over there.
Florencia: DE (I Needed It)florencia7 on August 12th, 2014 06:29 pm (UTC)
I miraculously (well, kind of consciously too, because I'm choosing not to read anything on the subject lol) spoilers-free so far, so I didn't even know about this instagram pic! But I LOVE your theory that we'll get DE summer flashbacks!!! It seems logical that they'd try to give us some DE scenes before the reunion that will probably take quite a few episodes to happen. But I guess I just didn't *dare* to hope for that... up till now ;D

haha I'll happily be wrong about amnesia. The reason why I went with this storyline is not because I like the idea, but because it just seems very likely. I'd still prefer for Damon and Bonnie to keep their memories intact. I think watching them fighting and struggling to find their way back home would be more rewarding than if their return/someone finding them was to be a result of an accident.
Arabian: Elena09arabian on August 17th, 2014 04:14 am (UTC)
I'm fine with whether they have their memories or not honestly. I trust the showrunners/writers. Whatever they decide to do, I'm chill with. I trust the journey and however they decide to go, I'll be happy to go with them and just enjoy the ride honestly.
Mattghidorah15 on August 22nd, 2014 06:19 pm (UTC)
Looks like we finally have a proper teaser trailer up on YouTube. But I'd stay out of the comments section - the amount of hate being spewed at Elena and Delena is just disgusting. I'm really glad your journal is free of that nonsense.

Arabian: Elena&Caroline01arabian on August 22nd, 2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
Yup, saw the promo and knew to avoid the comments because I figured there would be spoilers. There were only 4 comments though so I was lucky. Didn't even think of the hate that would be there. Silly people. Wow, did they go a different route so far based on that. Nice to see Elena didn't give up, but I'm wondering if she gives up on him by episode's end? Eh, we'll see.

I'm really glad your journal is free of that nonsense.

Me too!!!
Mattghidorah15 on September 22nd, 2014 08:33 pm (UTC)
So...a little more than a week left. How's tricks?
Arabian: Jeremy03arabian on September 22nd, 2014 11:47 pm (UTC)
I'm feeling wary which I'm sure will be dissipated by the show itself. Once again the CW just sucks so hard. Barely any promo at all, and the poster is just awful and they've done literally NOTHING to capitalize on all of the Damon/Elena buzz that was created by the finale, just nothing and instead have spat all over it. Typical. So, I'm just... kinda wary. I'm hearing rumblings (strong ones) that there will be a seventh season now (at least with Ian, Nina and Paul), which means possibly stringing the killed-dead triangle along more, so, yeah.... wary.
Mattghidorah15 on September 23rd, 2014 04:44 am (UTC)
Well, just because the network people are idiots at advertising doesn't mean the show itself will turn rotten. It hasn't truly let us down so far.

Edited at 2014-09-23 04:44 am (UTC)
Arabian: Elena13arabian on September 23rd, 2014 12:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, I know. Which is why I said the show itself will dissipate it, I'm sure, but right now, yeah, wary because of the CW and because now there's likely going to be an originally unplanned for 7th season. So, yeah, wary.
jairem08jairem08 on September 26th, 2014 09:44 am (UTC)
You know you are my grounding force for my TVD worries and insecurities. I wonder if I should worry now. Since you are wary. I really hope the marketing sucked purposefully. I only saw the poster by a chance and didn't like it. At all. Is there a message in there? What are they trying to say? I'm confused. I'm not crazy about S07 either. Why would they? S06 would be nice wrap up season. I don't know any other spoiler or info on the upcoming season and have no idea what to expect but really hope all will go ok?
Arabian: Damon & Elena39arabian on September 26th, 2014 10:38 am (UTC)
Oh, it's the CW and their typical HORRIBLE promotion. I'm not worried about that. As for season 07, from what I've heard, what happened what Damon at the end of season 05 was wrapped up in because of getting a season 07 so they were looking at. I'm just frustrated with the stupid-ass CW promotion which I hate SO MUCH.

Like I said, I'm sure the show itself will be fine, it's the CW and their suckage. The fact that Damon and Elena are being kept apart and not just plodding along in easy coupledom as frankly S/E were that shows they ARE the OTP couple.
jairem08jairem08 on September 26th, 2014 11:09 am (UTC)
Thanks for this.
Wonder when they want to stop the show. Going on forever will be silly. Actors are getting older and it will look stupid to be presented as teenagers and twenty something vampires constantly. Unless they make them human ... Even if for this reason S07 and beyond doesn't sit with me. Not to mention DE being kept apart yet again.
Again thanks for your reply. Let see what the new season brings.
Arabian: Damon & Elena42arabian on September 26th, 2014 11:21 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm sure that season 07 will be it for our trio. Of that I have no doubt. I can't see Ian and Nina at least going beyond that. And D/E being kept apart doesn't bother me *because* of this story. And I don't think that we're going to have them separated* that terribly long. Remember when Stefan was with Klaus, that lasted all of four episodes. I'm not saying this will last only four episodes (I'm still thinking 4-6, possibly a few more, but still), but I can't imagine it lasting much beyond that at all, and even if it does, we WILL see Damon/Elena together somehow. Because Damon/Elena are the biggest draw, they know that. It will just be a new form of angst, LOL! Because they ARE the show's OTP!

* As in not on screen together. They may not *be* together, but that will be a new part of their getting together. Because whatever is keeping them apart won't be because the love isn't there. And obviously Elena is fully, 100% aware of her love for Damon, so whatever it is, we should definitely see ELENA fighting for Damon. And won't that be a turn?!?! :D

jairem08jairem08 on September 26th, 2014 07:05 pm (UTC)
Let's hope it won't be long and that they will get them together fast. I don't know what the time jump will be in the first episode from the finale but I heard 6 months? That should be long enough to keep them apart. So I hope your about 6 episode max will be the longest before they get to see each other again.
Arabian: Caroline07arabian on September 26th, 2014 09:58 pm (UTC)
Please dont spoil me. :(

Sigh. But yeah, I just don't think we're going to have Damon and Bonnie gone from the Earthly plain for that many eps and separated from the other physically.

Sorry this might have slipped but I don't even know if it is true at all I absolutely don't read or fillow anything on TVD. Only place I read is here. Poster for instance I saw was completely by a chance and mentioned it only because you did. So my comment my be completely untrue. Wouldn't spoil this for you intentionally. I would hate it myself.

I'm sorry, what?
Arabian: Damon16arabian on September 26th, 2014 10:00 pm (UTC)
Yup. Thats why they went with what happened to Damon at the end of s5 because they have more time.
Mattghidorah15 on September 27th, 2014 12:03 am (UTC)
Ohhh, I get it now. They can afford to play out this storyline with him and Bonnie fighting their way back to being alive because they're gunning for Season Seven to be the last, which allows them time enough for the storylines they have left. That's your theory, anyway?
