Today’s announcement that Nina Dobrev will be leaving The Vampire Diaries at the end of the season has truly floored me. I suppose I should have been expecting it and maybe I was on some level. I’ve read the rumors over the last several months that things were not unicorns and rainbows on set. Frankly, I don’t care about the actors’ personal lives. As long as everyone shows up and does their job in a professional manner, I’m a happy camper. I just want to see twenty-two episodes of my shows each season.
I’ve spent the last several hours trying to figure out how the writers get us from Point A (episode 6×17) with a happy Damon and Elena to Point B (episode 6×22) where Elena dies or leaves town or whatever the writers have planned. The path totally escapes me, although I can’t help but wonder if this is why the cure is back in play.
Even harder for me to envision is what season seven will look like. I consider Elena to be the central character around whom the show was built. To move forward without her seems like an impossible task. However, I have to have faith that the producers and writers will deliver, otherwise I’m just crushed.
So, I anxiously await the final five episodes of season six and plan to mourn the loss of Elena during the summer hiatus. When October rolls around and season seven premieres, I will be sitting in front of the TV, excited to see what season seven holds for the residents of Mystic Falls.
Any theories, anyone? Please share!
Honestly, I’m really not sure what they are going to do. I mean, I’d love if they would delve into other people’s pasts, maybe go to a new town or something? Really though, the Elena story lines were running dry anyways, in my opinion. I think Nina Dobrev is smart to leave, but I just hope they have enough time to tie up all the loose ends. I’m not going to lie. If they somehow found a way to bring Nikki Reed in as Damon’s real true love after she left, I wouldn’t be opposed to that, if they wrote it correctly.
The possibility of them going to another town had crossed my mind as well. I guess I just wanted my happy Delena ending and that obviously isn’t going to happen.

I would love a happy Delena ending as well, but this isn’t a perfect world.
