Elena Gilbert has a drug problem? According to the brand new promo for Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries, she definitely does.
Not only are Jeremy, Elena, Caroline and Stefan struggling with the “deaths” of Damon and Bonnie, but they’re also having to deal with the real world. As we saw last season, Damon and Bonnie are off in the unknown somewhere (is it purgatory? is it the place where cool supernatural beings go after they die?), and now their friends and family are suffering from the aftermath.
This first teaser (below) highlights Elena’s grief as she’s taken on a new hobby. In the words of Caroline, “Do you know Elena has some sort of witchy drug problem that allows her to hallucinate Damon?“ Well, it can’t be all that bad if she’s “seeing” Damon, right? The video also shows Damon encouraging Elena to “move on,” while Jeremy finds comfort in alcohol.
Good thing Alaric is back as a series regular, because he needs to help these two, stat!
