“The Vampire Diaries” can be many things as a show, and based on some of the newest episode titles that have been released by The CW, consistent is one of them. All season long, the show has decided to use songs from around the 1990s as inspiration for their names, and while it seems as though Bonnie’s time in the alternate universe may be ending, that does not mean that the show is suddenly changing gears.
You may already know that the winter premiere on January 22 is entitled “Woke Up with a Monster” (read more about that here), and to go along with that, we have via SpoilerTV the names for the two subsequent episodes. Just for fun, we’ve also enclosed a little more information about the actual songs behind them.
6×12, “Prayer for the Dying” – This song was originally done by Seal, and we’ll be honest here: Despite being someone who mostly grew up in the 90s, we still had never heard this song before right now. Story-wise, this title makes us very afraid about the state of Caroline’s mother.
6×13, “The Day I Tried to Live” – It seems almost like the opposite of the previous title, no? This is a song from Soundgarden, a band that was supremely popular during the era. “Spoonman” and “Black Hole Sun” are to us a pair of their biggest hits.
Moving into the second half of this season, some of the biggest questions revolve around characters like Elena (who was captured by Kai) and Stefan, who is forced to deal with whatever his feelings are for Caroline while she tackles other devastating circumstances.
