Welcome to our super-detailed recap and review of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere episode 1 entitled “I’ll Remember.” We also have a nice spoiler synopsis and preview video of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 “Yellow Ledbetter” episode 2 at the end of the recap/review.
We see a lantern that blinks in and off then a tent. There are two teens inside it making out. They hear a noise and the girls ask what it is. The boy says he has no idea. The girl tells him to go and check it out. The boy tells her she can go check it out. Instead of telling him to act like man and not a bitch she goes and checks it out. She walks over to the tree the lantern is hanging in and hits a couple of times so it will come back on. She turns back around and starts a sentence that abruptly ends in a scream. The Sheriff is standing there with a flashlight glued on the girl. The girl tells her she thought she was a serial killer. The Sheriff tells her it’s worse actually because she will still be alive when she calls her parents. She tells them to pack it up. The teens are now walking through the forest headed towards a car. The boy is complaining about getting busted for two beers. They pass a sign that says they are now leaving Mystic Falls. The girl says that Mystic Falls is turning into that place from Footloose. He opens the trunk and throws his bag in. He notices the girl is missing. He yells for her and she comes falling out of the trees covered in blood. He runs to her and holds her and tells her everything will be ok. In between gasps she tells him to look up. He does and he sees a figure jumping down on him he screams. It’s Elena.
Elena is walking and in a voice over she says today was a good day. Summer is officially over and she couldn’t be more thrilled. Sophomore year..she says this is the year your supposed to pick a major to,carve at your path in life. So that’s what she did we are looking at future Dr. Elena Gilbert. She is lighting candles in a little church in graveyard. Next she is in a hospital with a bunch if other students and the doctor talking to them decides it’s time for a pop quiz. She ask if the patient is complaining of chest pains and is shirt of breath what test would they run. A guy holds his hand up but she calls on Elena who is lost in her own little world. Elena gets the answer correct. The doctor praises her for reading ahead and tells her to remember that she will need it in three years. She hands Elena a bed pan and tells,her that’s what she needs to know about today. They all start walking. The guy that raised his hand earlier tells Elena he was impressed. Elena says thanks. Back to Elena in the church. In the voice over she says so maybe I did spend the day observing but at least she has unlimited access to blood bags. She is pulling a envelope out of her pocket and pouring into a mortar and crushes it. She says we can use all the help can get. Some of us are still getting used to the whole drinking other peoples blood thing.
Alaric is mixing his blood in a cup of something he is drinking. Elena walks in and he ask her if she wants some. Elena tells him she had some on the way over. Elena tells him this will never not be weird. Alaric ask her what a witch turning him into a vampire or that four months ago he rose from the dead. Elena tells him it’s him being her college professor. Voice over Elena again she says in Alaric’s defense he couldn’t exactly compel himself a job back at the high school. Elena goes on tomsayn thanks to,the Travelers Mystic a Falls was off limits to anyone with fangs. On the plus side the crime rate is down. Matt is boxing with someone in the park. Elena says she isn’t sure that he got the memo. Elena says Matt is better than he has ever been. She thinks he can bench press more than Jeremy now which is behind freaky. Matt walks in on Jeremy making out with a girl on the couch. Elena continues her voice over. Speaking of Jeremy …actually lets not talk about my brother. Matt walks out. Elena says she would rather talks about Stefan. Cut to Stefan fixing a car. Elena says the last time she heard he was chasing some lead to a witch that could contact the dead. Stefan’s boss whistle to get his attention and tells him to get his ass over there it’s pay day. Elena says they haven’t spoken in months which must mean his search for answers has been all consuming. Elena says he is grieving he has lost so much. She is lighting candles. She says they all did. She puts the lot match in the mortar setting it’s contents ablaze. She says they are all getting through it in their own way.
Caroline is on the phone. She tells the person she is talking to that she dropped out of Whitmore why would she cheer for their stupid football team. It’s Elena. She tells Caroline it’s the opening game of the season and it’s time to come home. Caroline says she is home she just signed a lease on her new apartment. Caroline is having a picnic with the Sheriff (aka mom). Elena tells her she is living in a town that doesn’t even want her and that’s sad. Caroline points out the Elena doesn’t even like football. Elena says she like drinking in the parking lot before hand. Tyler comes up behind Elena and she puts the call on speaker. Tyler tells Caroline she is coming. Caroline tells Tyler not to act like he has any ground to stand in he skipped a entire year. Tyler tells Caroline she hounded him for a entire year so here he is. He tells her to her ass back there. Luke is standing behind Luke and shows Elena another brown envelope she shakes her head no and he walks away. Elena tells Caroline she is going to be at her house at six tomorrow and to bring her school spirit. Elena tells her bye and then hangs up.
Caroline goes back to talking to the Sheriff. Caroline tells her that he hasn’t found a spell that can undo a anti border spell per say but the book does mention Travelers which isn’t that helpful but at least it’s a step in the right direction. The Sheriff calls her sweetheart and then tells Caroline she should go with them tomorrow. Caroline says no that they are going to see a movie. The Sheriff tells her they have spent the whole summer together. Caroline puts the book down and says the Sheriff must be sick of her. The Sheriff tells her she just lost one of her closest friends so it makes since she would want to hang on to things that are familiar. She says Elena lost her to and that she clearly misses Caroline. Caroline says no that Elena has taken up residency on planet denial. Where football is more important than her boyfriend being swept off into oblivion. Caroline says every time she mentions Damon to Elena it’s like nothing ever happened. The Sheriff tells her that Elena has experienced more grief than anyone she has ever met. She tells Caroline to cut her some slack. The Sheriff gets a message that two kids were admitted to the hospital with suspicious wounds on their necks. Caroline ask if it’s vampire attacks and then says how vampires can’t get into Mystic Falls. The Sheriff tells her no but they can lurk around the borders. She tells Caroline she has to,go and take care of this. She also tells her to think about Elena’s offer. Caroline picks up,the basket to hand to her mother and she gets burned when her hand goes past the invisible border.
Elena is doing the voice over again. She says Caroline doesn’t want to let go. Elena says he gets it she doesn’t want to either. She is pouring water in the mortar. She says he doesn’t wanna think that everything has changed and she has to start over. The worst thing that could possibly happen actually did. She puts the mortar to her mouth and drinks what’s in it. Next she was in the woods. Elena says but she doesn’t have to. She then says that was her day how about hours. She looks over and Damon is siting next to her. Damon says can we go back to the part where Alaric came back from the dead to be a college professor. Elena laughs. Damon puts his arms around her and holds her.
Alaric is in front of his class teaching about the occult. Elena has her book up and is hiding behind it. In class, Elena hides behind her notebook as Alaric lectures on the occult. Alaric tells his class the occult translated literally means hidden therefore the study of the occult…….Alaric looks over at a hidden Elena….he trails off ….picks up his lost thought and continues therefore the study of the occult is the study of hidden knowledge. Today they are going to discuss it as it relates to resurrection something he is quite versed in at this point. Livvie starts laughing and Alaric ask her if something is funny. Livvie says more like ironic but ok. Tyler comes flying in late. Alaric tells him it’s generous for the practice squad to lend him to them. Tyler apologizes,for being late and them looks around in a panic. He sits down next to Livvie and peeks at her book. She snatches away. Tyler calls her princess and tells,her he is sorry he was Jair trying to see what page they are on. Livvie tells him shhhh that she is trying to listen. Livvie waves her hand and makes the book flip to the right page for Tyler. Tyler jumps and looks over at her. Livvie acts coy and hides her face as a smile breaks out in it. Back to Alaric rambling he is saying that they believes resurrection only existed in a spiritual sense. He peeks at Elena again. Alaric sends a direct message to Elena that only she can hear. Alaric says Elena you know I can smell that right. Elena looks up from her cup and when the straw slips out of her mouth blood is on it. Alaric tells her it isn’t fair that she has that while all the kids in that room smell like blood sausages. Alaric tells her to put it away. Elena says sorry. Back to teaching Alaric goes.
After class Elena hauls ass to catch up to Luke who is hauling ass to get away from Elena. Elena tells him she has been really thirsty lately and she ask him if it’s because of the you know.

Elena wants to know if he can maybe I don’t know add something to the next batch. Luke tells her there shouldn’t be a next batch. Elena ask what he means like she can’t grasp the simple concept. Elena points out it was Luke’s idea she see Damon of figment of my imagination land. Elena goes on to point out he is the reason Damon is no longer around. Luke tells her he is well aware and that’s why he made Alaric the daylight bracelet. Luke tells her he went against his covens rules to,get her the herbs and now is a good time for her to come back to life, back to reality, back to the hear and now.

Tyler reaches and grabs her and tells her he will tell Luke sorry. Tyler tells her that four months ago he could do anything. He could make anyone do anything he wanted, he was stronger than most people on earth and then it went away. All that is left inside of him is rage. Livvie ask him why he is telling her this.

Matt is walking around in the house cleaning Jeremy’s mess. There is a invisible wall standing between us and them and nobody is doing anything about it. Jeremy is drunk stumbling through the woods. Caroline says a part of her wonders if they hope they never find a way back in. Jeremy comes across a picture of him, Matt, Bonnie,and Elena. Caroline says and then there is me just sitting in a diner on the border of town trying to figure out how to get their home back. She says we just lost two of their closest friends and that they need each other. They need to be together or pretty soon they are just going to end up picture in a yearbook thrown in the back of a drawer somewhere. That is why she is not going to quit calling until he picks up the phone and she hears his voice and he tells her he is going to help her fix it because she is not going to give up on us. Stefan looks at the opine and then breaks it. Didn’t even listen to the message by the way.
Elena ask Alaric if he likes being a vampire. Alaric tells her she needs to get some sleep. Elena says with all the funerals she never had a chance to ask him. He said no in away from Mystic Falls helped. Elena says she meant the blood lust, heightened emotions and immortality. Alaric walkers over and sits in the bed next to her. He tells her that honestly he hates everything about being a vampire. Elena seconds that. But tells him one day she found the good part. The promise that love could be eternal. Elena says she had that with Damon which means for the rest of eternity she will have a hole in her heart where he is supposed to be. Alaric tells her it will get easier. Elena tells him she knows how death works. She tells him there is no such thing as moving on. It’s a lie. So if she is ever going to be able to move on and make eternity bearable she needs Alaric to do something for her. Alaric ask what. You were created by the original vampires and since she can’t be a normal human and stuff she wants Alaric to compel her to forget she ever loved Damon. Alaric just looks at her.
Damon is making breakfast for him and Bonnie. He puts fangs on the pancakes. Bonnie tells him that everyday she tells him she hates that. Damon says and everyday I do it anyway. Bonnie hands him the paper.
