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.

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.
