The Vampire Diaries season 6 returned last night with yet another strong episode. Season 6 still lacks the charm and excitement from seasons 1-3, but it's definitely an improvement from seasons 4 and 5. The second Paul Wesley directed episode, "Woke Up with a Monster," showed clear growth and confidence. Lots of little wonderful visual tricks we don't usually see on the show.
