The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 1 will be airing in a few weeks, yet there’s still no confirmation on whether Nina Dobrev will return to the show as Elena. New updates seem to answer that question.
TVD returns to CW on October 21 and fans cannot wait to see what the show has in store for them this final season. Many are hoping they’ll see Delena back together, but CW and the show creators have kept mum about the truth.
Season 7 ended with references to Dobrev’s character, Elena. This strengthened speculations that Nina Dobrev return to TVD will happen this coming season. Especially since the final episode of last season showed some of the best Damon, Elena scenes.
While nothing has been confirmed so far, recent reports have suggested that producers are already working to get Dobrev back to The Vampire Diaries season 8.
The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Spoilers: Elena to Save Damon?
The synopsis for The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 1 suggests Damon will be back to his old self, wrecking havoc in the town.
“Damon Salvatore will be up to his old tricks—the kind he was pulling when we first met him in the series premiere: trapping young couples driving on dark streets at night with the whole ‘body in the road’ trick,” E! explains.
Seems Damon will be wasting his days away with the help of his new partner Enzo, while Stefan tries to stop his older brother. But can he? Or will Elena be the only to stop Damon from throwing his vampire life away as he becomes a slave to an evil entity?
“[Stefan is] very focused on trying to rescue his brother from this mess, understanding that the fallout of whatever it is that Damon has to do could impact his ability to be reunited with Elena one day,” executive producer Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly.
Plec’s answer sort of hints that Stefan will indeed try to save his brother from some sort of evil hypnotization. But more importantly, her answer suggests a Damon, Elena reunion. Fans do hope The Vampire Diaries finale will end with Delena back together.
The Vampire Diaries season 8 premiere airs on October 21, 2016 on CW.
