The Vampire Diaries Season 8: Fans To Expect Death As Series Nears End

We’re in the final four episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 8, with the show’s creators recently announcing that the finale will air on March 10. The producers already warned the fans of an impending death this season. But, do you know it may bring back Elena (Nina Dobrev) from deep sleep?

According to Mobile & Apps, the spoilers for the next episodes hinted of a reunion between Nina Dobrev and her real-life ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore). There are certain “means” to come to this conclusion, specifically the death of Bonnie (Kat Graham).

How can we bring back Elena in The Vampire Diaries Season 8?

In an upcoming The Vampire Diaries Season 8 episode entitled The Simply Intimacy of the Near Tough, Bonnie is going to face a crossroads—whether to transform into a vampire or not. The episode spoilers showed that Bonnie will be returning from her vacation with a bottle of Enzo’s (Michael Malarkey) blood. This makes Caroline (Candice King) wonder if she will go through with her transformation.

Elena’s deep sleep can only be broken down by Bonnie’s death. So, series creator Julie Plec’s hint that a “major death” will happen in the series might also mean the return of a beloved character in Elena. Of course, they may bring death to another character. But fans want to believe otherwise.

However, many fans believe that the show will attempt to bring Elena back to bring The Vampire Diaries into its perfect conclusion. What perfect conclusion? Elena living a normal life once again after hers was turned upside down.

Will Nina Dobrev be back for the final episode?

The creators may manage to justify Elena waking up from her deep sleep, but is there any way to lure Dobrev back to the show? When the actress left in the wake of her very public breakup from Somerhalder, she reportedly promised Plec she’ll make a cameo for the finale.

This is a promise that she couldn’t apparently keep. One of the reasons was her projects like XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. Then, there’s also the issue of working again with her ex, which doesn’t seem to sit well with Dobrev. Let’s just wait and see if she’ll be back for The Vampire Diaries Season 8.
