In the end, Stefan (played by Paul Wesley), newly human again, sacrificed his future with his wife, Caroline (played by Candice King), to save his brother, Damon (played by Ian Somerhalder), and the town he has loved for nearly two centuries.“You have quite literally an eternity with Elena ahead of you,” Stefan reminds Damon, before injecting his brother with the cure for vampirism and taking his place.She also continues to grow her new friendship with Nora, surprisingly. We start to get little peeks at this force that’s been after Stefan all of this time, and we’ll slowly but surely start to piece together this mythology that we’ve been building with that sword and the stone, and why that’s the spine of the season.” At least we get to see Matt and Tyler spend some quality bro-time together as Michael Trevino returns for tonight’s episode. Caroline invited Tyler to her baby shower, of course!“Caroline’s getting more and more pregnant so those babies have to come out at some point,” Dries says. One of my favorite scenes is coming up in [this] episode, directed by Paul Wesley.You know Nina could only come back for one episode — maybe if she had came back for the whole season, we could even have warped back towards that, but you can’t just do it in 42 minutes.”Watching the finale now — which ends with Elena (played by Nina Dobrev) and Damon living a long life together after Elena finishes medical school, walking down the street holding hands, and eventually finding peace with their late family members — it’s hard to imagine how the show’s could end any other way. In a recent interview with , Plec said, “Back in season 2, when Kevin and I were sitting in the mall and we had fallen in love with this series and this story about two brothers who loved the same girl, and the love triangle was kicking into high gear, we said to ourselves: When all is said and done, when this show is over, both brothers should die in the name of saving their girl and then be watching her like ghosts ...as she went off into the sunset to live her life and maybe marry Matt Donovan or maybe become a doctor, but that those brothers would be side-by-side watching her live.”The love triangle between Stefan, Damon, and Elena has always been a strong point of , and the emotional resonance between all three characters made it a truly impossible choice throughout the years.Season six was arguably one of Damon and Elena’s more dramatic seasons, because she chose to erase all good memories of Damon after she thought he died.(He was actually trapped in a magical prison world.) When Damon finally returned, a lot of fanfare was made of the two reuniting, since all Elena could remember of Damon was that he was “a monster.”Delena fans would likely be furious if Stefan and Elena reconnected romantically, but the show has made a point throughout its seasons of emphasizing the fact that human Elena is Stefan’s soul mate, and Elena had to turn into a vampire to be with Damon.
And unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait a little longer.Initially, Damon is the main antagonist in the beginning of the show and later became a protagonist.After the first few episodes, Damon begins working alongside his younger brother, Stefan Salvatore, to resist greater threats and gradually Elena begins to consider him a friend.Even though Bonnie knows Damon almost killing her wasn’t his fault (he was just leaving his own personal hell and didn’t know it was real, obviously), that doesn’t mean she’s all too keen on spending time with him right now. When oh when is poor Matt Donovan ever going to get some romance?She’s got other problems on her plate—namely, helping Matt clear out all the new, unwanted Mystic Falls residents. We’re going to see a hint of what’s coming for him in tonight’s episode, but we’ll soon find out that something is going to propel Matt onto a new path entirely. “There is a character that we haven’t seen yet in the flash-forwards. “And we’ll start to understand why we haven’t seen him yet, and what’s going on with him in three years in the future.
