Here’s the preview for The Vampire Diaries’ next episode 6×04: “Black Hole Sun”. The episode airs October 23rd on The CW

Here’s the official synopsis for The Originals’ “Red Door” (2×05) and The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev appears as Tatia, the original doppelganger! The episode airs November 3rd on The CW.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ NINA DOBREV APPEARS IN FLASHBACKS AS TATIA, THE ORIGINAL DOPPELGANGER — In order to show Elijah (Daniel Gillies) that her plan is what’s best for him, Esther forces him to relive a time long ago when he loved a young woman named Tatia (guest star Nina Dobrev). With the help of Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is determined to find Elijah, who has gone missing, but is torn when she discovers that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is also in trouble. Elsewhere, Cami (Leah Pipes) finds herself in a dangerous situation when Mikael (guest star Sebastian Roche) takes her hostage as a way to lure Klaus to him, and Davina (Danielle Campbell) makes an upsetting discovery about Kaleb’s (guest star Daniel Sharman) true identity. Lastly, a violent confrontation ensues when Klaus comes face-to-face with Mikael.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries’ 6×06: “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get” airing November 6th on The CW

A RESCUE IN THE NIGHT — When Alaric (Matt Davis) realizes that Jo (guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) can’t be compelled, he asks Elena (Nina Dobrev) to do some digging into her background. After learning that Enzo (Michael Malarkey) has been captured by Tripp, Caroline (Candice Accola) teams up with Matt and Stefan (Paul Wesley) to rescue him before Tripp learns their true identities. Armed with some new information about her past, Sarah (guest star Gabrielle Walsh) breaks into Tripp’s (guest star Colin Ferguson) office and is surprised when she finds Matt (Zach Roerig) there, doing some investigating of his own. Meanwhile, Elena is forced to deal with the consequences of her actions, and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) hits rock bottom, lashing out in a destructive way. Lastly, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is determined to take matters into his own hands when he receives some upsetting news.

You’d think that losing their best friend might bring Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) closer together, but the opposite seems to be the case when The Vampire Diaries returns tomorrow with its Season 6 premiere. What did Nina have to tease about Elena and Caroline’s new frenemy-ship?

“There are a lot of things that are straining their relationship,” Nina told TV Guide. “The fact that they can’t go to Mystic Falls, the fact that Elena is in denial, but there’s also [Caroline's] friendship with Stefan straining things.”

The site also teased that Caroline will make “a shocking discovery about her BFF by the end of the premiere that further complicates things.” Yikes! We knew things were awkward between these two from this Season 6 premiere sneak peek, but we didn’t realize it was going to get worse.

But there is hope on the horizon! Nina said: “At the end of the day, they do care about each other so they’re trying to pull each other out of their conflict.” Yeah, these two have been through so much together — and have collectively and individually lost so much. We can’t imagine them not being in one another’s lives. Or ever giving up on their friendship.
