‘The Vampire Diaries’ Review: Elena’s Goodbye

I still want Elena and Damon to end up together.

I still want Elena and Damon to end up together.

I still can’t believe that will be the last we will see of Elena Gilbert. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye and I’m not ready for an entire season without her. She’s such a big part of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and a piece of the show is now missing.

This episode was a great tribute to Elena. Everyone got to say goodbye. She touched so many people and we even got to see Jeremy again. It was a very sad episode, but it was one of the best episodes I’ve seen saying goodbye to a character. And Elena and Damon could still be the endgame. That just depends on if Nina Dobrev is willing to come back for the series finale. Bonnie could die in an epic battle and Elena and Damon could finally be together. Or we could just fast forward in time.

I really thought the writers were going to kill off Elena. Especially the way the previews showed it. The writers did something very surprising. Kai took his revenge on Bonnie in a very interesting way. Killing Bonnie wouldn’t get his revenge, but linking her life to Elena’s would and it would also be payback to Damon. I almost thought Damon was going to kill Bonnie, that’s what Kai was hoping for too, but Damon has come a long way. He may have played with Bonnie’s emotions before, but he wasn’t about to kill her. Once upon a time he wouldn’t have thought twice about killing her to be with Elena. But Bonnie has become a great friend, Elena even called her his best friend.

I definitely think Damon and Stefan’s goodbyes were the hardest to watch. They were Elena’s two epic loves. Damon was by far the hardest. She wants him to live his life and be happy. He’s not ready to spend the next 60 years without her. They had a great last dance, but it’s time to say goodbye.

Alaric had a really rough day. His wife and unborn children were killed right in front of him at the wedding and then his surrogate daughter is put in a deep sleep and he’ll never see her again. And now everyone in the Gemini coven is dead. Not before Liv did one last good deed. Liv had Tyler kill her so he could live. I guess it was always only a matter of time before he triggered the curse again. But what will he do now?

What becomes of Mystic Falls after Elena’s gone? It looks like a very scary place. We know the heretics did come back and Lily was reunited with her family. But Damon doesn’t look like he’s been a good boy since he lost Elena. On the upside Matt fulfilled Elena’s wish, he’s a cop.

Stefan finally told Caroline how he feels and that he’ll wait for her. By the look on Caroline’s face it doesn’t look like he’ll have to wait too long, but things always seem so different when a new season begins.

I think ‘TVD’ will look very different next season without Elena. Will it be able to keep it’s fan base without its main character? I guess we will have to wait and see.
