The recently released poster of "The Vampire Diaries" season 6 has hinted that Damon and Elena's romance could be torn apart. The poster shows the duo taking different paths.
Designed by CW's senior art director Brian Hunt and inspired by Karl Pavlovich Brioullov's "The Last Day of Pompeii," the poster also shows Bonnie pulling away Damon from Elena while Caroline (Candice Accola) is seen sitting on the ground.
While the fans anticipate reunion of Damon and Elena, the poster has a different story to tell. Damon may only appear in Elena's past and the couple may never reunite.
However, one of the spoilers has it that Damon may try his best to reunite with Elena.
"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 saw Damon and Bonnie's death as they were trapped on "The Other Side." Since then, there has been a huge amount of speculation on Damon and Elena's reunion.
Season 6 will reportedly show Elena trying to come to terms with Damon's death.
"She's trying, and I won't necessarily say she's succeeding. She's got some complicated coping mechanisms that are making her be things and do things and act in ways that we wouldn't normally expect from her," said EP Julie Plec to TV Line.
It is also repported that Damon and Bonnie are not dead and will be taking time to get use to the surroundings of "The Other Side."
"They'll be aware that they're no longer where they thought they were — but they're also not dead, per se. They'll be asking a lot of questions, along with the audience, including: What's going on? Where the hell are we? And how do we get home?" added Plec.
Damon and Bonnie are going to have a lot of queries in regard to their existence, as people close to them may try to move on with their lives.
Damon's brother Stefan may have to make some very hard decisions on how he wants to move ahead. The first part of season 6 may show the state of the characters after the loss of Damon and Bonnie, according to Pelc.
"TVD" season 6 cast includes Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and others. It will premiere on CW this fall.
