Warning: Spoilers up ahead!

Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries is set to return with episode 16 next month with Ian Somerhalder at the reins, kick-starting all the vamp love following a short series hiatus.

And based on the photos that have been released by The CW of Damon's directorial debut, we are certainly set for an epic return on March 12th with 'The Downward Spiral.'

For a vague idea on what to expect, check out the synopsis below:

After shutting off her humanity following the death of her mother, Caroline gives her friends an unexpected ultimatum. Not knowing how to handle the new Caroline, Stefan’s attempt to intervene sets off a dangerous chain of events, leaving him and Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a race against the clock. Meanwhile, after seeking answers from Kai about the prison world, Damon’s world is turned upside when he learns some devastating news about his mother Lily. Elsewhere, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) finds himself becoming increasingly intrigued by Sarah Salvatore (Tristin Mays), and Bonnie begins to struggle with the effects of being back in the real world.

For one, I just can't wait to learn about the extent of Caroline's meltdown following her mom's tear-jerking passing. And will her current state mean that Stefan will be pushed to the sidelines?

For those of you who simply cannot wait those ten days or so until you can feast your eyes on what magic Somerhalder has worked, take a look at these images:

Caroline seems to have lost her mind with cocktails

Somehow I don't think anyone else is in a partying kind of mood.

Turning off her humanity switch has not only meant that she behaves differently, but she clearly also looks somewhat different, too?

Stelena seem very concerned at her behavior

The worry on Stefan's face suggests that the situation is not an easy one to tackle. Just how far will Caroline go and is her current mental state worse than we expected?

And if these tantalizing tidbits aren't enough for you, take a look at the sneak peak trailer for the next episode below:

I can't wait! Will YOU be watching?


Are you excited to see what Ian Somerhalder created whilst in the directors chair?
