With all of the commotion caused by Kai (Christopher Wood) last night's ninth episode in season six of "The Vampire Diaries" was missing a key character, Caroline (Candice Accola).

The last time fans saw Caroline was in the "Friendsgiving" episode a few weeks ago, where the big dinner plans were turned upside down by a shocking revelation about Jo and the Parker twins. While Caroline's character was missing in "I Alone," Enzo (Michael Malarkey) returned once again to create even more havoc as well as a rivalry with Stefan (Paul Wesley).

Enzo is clearly not convinced that Stefan is the hero everyone makes him out to be and the beef is intensified after Caroline was hurt by Stefan.

It is interesting that "The Vampire Diaries" writers chose to keep her out of last nights episode especially considering the fact that she was present when Elena (Nina Dobrev) got the news about Bonnie (Kat Graham) being alive. It almost didn't feel like a complete episode without her in it.

She has been quite a pivotal part of this season given her developing back and forth love story with Stefan.

It could mean that fans can see her make a huge come back in next weeks episode but from Enzo's words last night she could find herself caught in the middle of a love triangle.

It would have been interesting to see Caroline and Elena take the journey over to the other side to bring their friend back. The love story between Elena and Damon make that a little more difficult. The fact that Damon and Bonnie really bonded doesn't help either.

Damon always seems to get what he wants at Bonnie's expense and that was the reason for Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) words as he ended his phone call with Elena.

It is easy to understand why the writers chose to take the route they did but Caroline and Elena taking the journey together to bring back their friend would have been a little nice to see.

Elena and Damon's love story is explored almost every week but the original bond between Caroline, Elena and Bonnie is began to seem a little lost last night.

Some fans took to Twitter to ask "Where Was Caroline?"
