Now that Alaric has successfully managed to tweak Elena's (Nina Dobrev) perception of Damon (Ian Somerhalder), there seems to be an opportunity for former lovers, Elena and Stefan (Paul Wesley), to reunite.
Photos from episode four of season six, titled "Black Hole Sun," show Elena and Stefan hitting the bar together, sparking speculations that they might embark on a romantic relationship as the season progresses.
However, the talk is that their relationship could be purely platonic. "Stefan attempts to show Elena what it's like to start over and create a new identity," the episode description reads, adding that Stefan too is "desperate to regain some normalcy in his life."
Interestingly, Elena's love life is not going to be dormant now that she has finally managed to convert the Damon "was my boyfriend, I loved him and he died" chant to "He was Stefan's brother. He was a monster. Then he died."
Spoilers have it that Elena will lock lips with an interesting guy in the third episode of the season, titled "Welcome to Paradise." Never give up hope [on Stelena]," TVLine's Michael Ausiello wrote. "Elena's emotions are all over the place in Season 6 and I have it on good authority that her love life is going to be far from dormant. In fact, I hear she'll be locking lips with a handsome fella in Episode three — and his name does not rhyme with Shmamon."
The third episode will have Elena and gang hitting the swimming hole to infuse some fun into their lives. However, drama isn't far behind, as Stefan arrives in Mystic Falls to hunt down Enzo for killing his girlfriend. As per the synopsis, Jeremy will make a surprising discovery about the anti-magic spell that could put Elena's life in danger.
Elsewhere, Damon and Bonnie already found out that they weren't alone in the past, and in the upcoming episode, they will come across more clues to confirm their doubts.
In the coming episodes, Damon and Bonnie will realise that going back to a time in Damon's past might provide clues to finding their way back home, and this might force the eldest Salvatore brother to relive one of the worst days of his life. Their current entrapment might have something to do with Damon's actions on 10 May 1994.
Meanwhile, speculations are also rife that Sarah might be the key to bring back Damon and Bonnie. A certain section of fans believe that Sarah could be Bonnie's half-sister who is in town to see her father, and in all likelihood, she too could be a witch.
