CW's "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 released a very short teaser featuring Elena's return to the series. Elena Gilbert, portrayed by Nina Dobrev, has finally woken up from her deep slumber. As the show's habit in killing off characters is evident, fans presume that Elena's return means another character's end that causes many to speculate that Damon will be dead soon. Is it?
(SPOILERS ALERT: Read at your own risk)
From the "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 Episode 13, TVLine recapped that the notorious villain, Kai (Chris Wood), is now back in Mystic Falls. With his return, Damon held his hopes up that Kai will undo the curse he bestowed Elena through a mutual agreement. Remember, Elena remains asleep unless Bonnie (Kat Graham) dies.
Unsurprisingly, Kai betrayed Damon by stabbing him, leaving him to desiccate. The question is: Will Damon actually die from hands of Kai? Many believe it is so. Julie Plec revealed that a major character's death is coming for the "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8, and most probably Plec refers to Damon.
Kai stabbed Damon with the sword that can even kill the creator of Hell himself, Cade (Wolé Parks). Not to mention, Damon is desiccating at the end of the episode. Not only that, Kai disappeared with Elena's body for unknown reason although fans are ensured that Elena will be okay as it is already a known fact that she is coming back alive. "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 does know how to create complicated situations
Further, Damon's chance of being dead increases as a "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 teaser showed a casket scene for the finale. According to Entertainment Weekly, the final episode features Elena standing and crying in the Mystic Falls cemetery with almost everyone of the crew around her.
Meanwhile, many become persistent that Elena must end up with Stefan as both are humans now. However, it is rather too confusing how Stefan seemed not to be dying as Katherine notably died after becoming human due to her reality-age. Stefan, in fact, is over a hundred-year-old being. Thus, Stefan is also a candidate for being dead in the "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 finale.
On the other hand, many also believe that Bonnie will be the one on the casket at the finale episode. Since the curse is between Bonnie and Elena and assuming Kai failed to reverse the curse, this means that Bonnie died for Elena to wake up. Bonnie may sacrifice herself once again as she is depress about Enzo's death. However, as to how Bonnie will die in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 remains a mystery.
Anyways, let us hope that showrunners will provide a justifying finale for this epic show. "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 final episode will air this March.© 2017 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
