A Major Character Dies in the Vampire Diaries Series Finale and We Have Some Theories
Fans rejoiced when we found out that Nina Dobrev would return for the Vampire Diaries series finale, but it won't be a happy occasion. Instead, Elena Gilbert will spend her few waking moments left on screen at a funeral.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Dobrev filmed one of her last scenes in a Mystic Falls cemetery, surrounded by almost everyone that she loves. Apparently, the one person missing is the body in the coffin.
"We wanted to go big, emotionally, with the action, and with the spectacular of it. We were absolutely feeling epic," showrunner Julie Plec said. "It's a big death," EW's Samantha Highfill teased. "I think fans are really going to be impacted."
So whose supernatural life will be coming to an end? The obvious answer is Bonnie, because according to Kai's spell, she can't be alive while Elena lives. But with Kai's return at the end of last week's episode, it's possible that the spell could be broken and someone else's life be in jeopardy.
Our next choice would be the newly human Stefan, who is now an easy target. Cade is clamoring to kill him already, and his death would certainly wreck Elena—not to mention his little brother Damon.
Speaking of, if one of Elena's "loves" is going to die, it's obvious Damon has to be in the running. After all, what would be more tragic than Elena finally coming back to life—but her longtime love dying soon thereafter?
One thing's for sure: These last four episodes will have us sitting on the edge of our seats.
