‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season Seven Promo is Here!

If you weren’t already excited for season seven of The Vampire Diaries, take a look at the promo and prepared to feel a little better about having no Elena this season.

We’re about to encounter a very different kind of enemy. An enemy that the gang is making deals with and since when did they start making deals with their enemies? There’s always some sort of plan to take the enemy down, even if the plan never usually works out well.

You were never supposed to be a vampire and a witch, but these were special witches. We saw how evil Kai was and now there’s more of them!

If the action and the heritics taking over Mystic Falls isn’t enough, we get a little peek at Steroline kissing! So we know we don’t have to wait long for this couple to start blooming. Of course I hope there’s a lot more than this one kiss to look forward to.

Plus Damon is back to his old ways. Not that I didn’t love Damon with Elena, because I did. But he’s sexy and naughty again and never likes to play by anyone’s rules.

Caroline and Kat are the only two leading ladies this season. Kat is ready to fight back and Caroline is seen kidnapped!

With more screen time for these to lovely ladies, I hope they get really good storylines. Kat hasn’t had a very good storyline because she’s been trapped in another dimension, but now she should get a killer storyline. She’s very powerful and I’m sure she’s still angry at what happened with Elena.

I’m most looking forward to more Caroline and the progression of Steroline. Caroline has always been my favorite female character and I was always disappointed when she wasn’t in an episode. Now is the time for the writers to utilize her more.

I love Damon too, so I’m looking forward to sexy, naughty Damon. October needs to get here quicker.

What are you most looking forward to when TVD returns?

‘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.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Review: Kai Returns to Crash Jo’s Wedding

Kai knows how to hurt people. Was right in the middle of Jo's vows necessary?

Kai knows how to hurt people. Was right in the middle of Jo’s vows necessary?

Most of this episode was very quiet and then Kai made a grand entrance by killing his sister on her wedding day as she’s saying her vows. I was not expecting that at all. Leave it ‘The Vampire Diaries’ to totally ruin a wedding.

Jo is dying, Elena is knocked out and Bonnie is not doing well either! That’s a lot of ladies not doing well heading into the season finale. I’m already afraid Elena will die, but not Bonnie and Jo too. Alaric and Jo were supposed to run off together and Bonnie just got back!

So Matt needs to stop taking vampire matters into his own hands. I don’t care how much he hates them, it never ends well. This time it may have gotten Bonnie killed. Really in the cellar was when Kai made his entrance by knocking out Bonnie and Matt, but we didn’t get to see him. Kai spared Matt, but of course he was seeking revenge with Bonnie.

How exactly did Lily get out? Was it Kai? Are we going to be seeing her friends soon? Those are some scary creatures to be facing down in the season finale.

As I said, this was a very quiet episode. It was a very nice episode. Damon actually decided to take the cure and he’s thought about it a lot. Plus Stefan tried to convince him otherwise. It was an old couple that had been together 40 years that made his decision. If I didn’t know Nina Dobrev was leaving the show, I would love for Damon to take the cure. But we do know Elena will be no more, so I don’t want to see a human Damon with no Elena. That won’t be any fun! I’m guessing Kai crashing the wedding gets in the way of Damon taking the cure. Now the question is, does Elena die or does he change his mind again?

Caroline was back this week! And back to what she does best, planning parties! Who better to pull off Jo’s wedding than Caroline. She was also doing the “amends tour” as Elena called it. We got to see a Steroline moment, but it ended with Caroline walking away. We’ll have to wait a little bit for this couple. Not that I can blame Caroline. After everything, she needs some time.

So next week we say goodbye to Elena Gilbert. Please tell me we actually get to see some of her in the finale. This can’t be the last we see of her. The promo for the finale looks like Elena is already gone! This can’t be how she goes out. At least kill her in the season finale. Take a look at the promo and prepare the tissues for next week:

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Review: I’d Become a Human for You

It seems fitting that we would see the old Gilbert house again before Elena leaves.

It seems fitting that we would see the old Gilbert house again before Elena leaves.

Since we know that Nina Dobrev is leaving, it’s unlikely that Damon will take the cure with her. It’s almost a shame that we can’t be wondering will he or won’t he, but if Elena dies at the end to the season, that would be even more cruel. So even though the suspense has been taken out of this storyline, it’s okay.

It’s interesting that Elena is human again before she leaves the show. Will she run off with Alaric and Jo? Or will the writer’s actually kill her off. However the writers choose to write her off the show, it better be an epic send off. Elena Gilbert deserves that.

It was nice imagining a human Damon, but it’s not a realistic fantasy. Everyone knows Damon would hate being human again. But it’s no surprise that Elena is still madly in love with him. Does everyone forget that the reason she was sired to him was because she loved him when she was human? So Elena worrying if she would still love him, as Bonnie pointed out, wasn’t unnecessary.

All of Elena’s memories are back and she remembers how much Damon doesn’t want to be human. So she’s making him think about it and discuss with other people. It is a big decision after all. It’s also a heartbreaking storyline, since we kind of know where it’s headed. Damon and Elena will not live happily ever after and it’s really awful for the epic love story of there’s. I still haven’t gotten over this. I just hope the writers do their story justice in the end. And I’m wondering how romantic storylines will go on from here. Caroline and Stefan still have a shot after she gets over what she’s done, but what about Damon? I don’t really want to see him with anyone else, it would just be cruel.

Looks like Alaric and Jo will be leaving too. Alaric is actually taking Matt’s advice and getting out. Jo finding out she had twins is what made up his mind. The coven will come for them, to strip Kai from his powers. But will they have powers, seeing as Jo gave up hers?

She might have a fight on her hands sooner than she’d like. Kai has found a way out. I thought Bonnie said there was no way out? Mystic Falls is about to get some major villains and they’re one vampire down. Maybe Elena should have waited to take the cure.

The episode wasn’t all doom. Jo got a pretty fun bachelorette party. It’s too bad Caroline wasn’t around to plan it. She’s a great party planner. But Bonnie, Elena and Jo still had fun. They stuffed their faces and talked about Damon.

Alaric was having a very similar conversation with Damon. Everyone wanted to know about Damon possibly taking the cure. It is a big surprise after all. But Damon wouldn’t tell his brother. I think he was scared that Stefan was going to show him the truth, it wasn’t a smart choice. He’s a vampire and he can’t be anything else. Do we really want to see him as anything else?

Matt is having some real issues since he almost died again. He’s now drinking himself to death, as Tyler said. Tyler can’t control his rage and is terrified of becoming a wolf again. Two storylines that could be tapped into more. Both are very lost and confused and very alone.

Lily won’t be alone too much longer. Her friends are coming! She was a bit of a surprise this week. She still knows Stefan very well. She knows when he’s lying to her. And her ripper tendencies are interesting. She didn’t kill Jo when she said she was pregnant. That was strange. I don’t think Ripper Stefan would have stopped. But as I said before, I think her humanity switch is broken. I was not happy when Lily tried to kill Bonnie, though I understand why she did it.

We just got Bonnie back and now she’s on the brink of death again, but Damon was able to heal her. Bonnie needs to be more careful. She’s died too many times. Everyone on this show had died too many times.

Only two more episodes left with Nina. Stefan shows Damon what his life would be like if he took the cure. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Vampire Diaries’: Just Because

This was a very brutal way to get her to bring back her emotions.

This was a very brutal way to get her to bring back her emotions.

Damon’s secret is out. Elena knows about the cure, but she doesn’t want to take it. She wants to spend eternity with Damon. Damon tells her she will take the cure and he will take it with her. Wait, what? Is there another dose of the cure that we don’t know about it? In 1903? But if Bonnie destroys the descendant how will he get it?

Now that Damon knows exactly what or who his mommy’s friends are, he’s regretting giving her the ascendant. So he went to Bonnie, who was very mad at him. Bonnie decided to make a lunch date with Lily to make sure she was out of the house so she could retrieve the ascendant. It worked nicely, but then Momma Salvatore decided to threaten Damon with destroying the cure.

Damon of course went to Bonnie to get it back. Even pushed her out of the way, but Bonnie saw right through him. She saw how terrified he was of giving Elena the cure. She told him if he can handle a bunch of people that can kill her and watching Elena grow old, take the ascendant. He couldn’t bring himself to take it. When he got home he thought his mother was destroying the cure, but she gave it to Elena and told her Damon was never going to give it to her.

Elena forgave Damon quickly. And chose not to take the cure quickly. But what will happen next?

Stefan was on a mission to save Caroline. He did a pretty good job of tricking Caroline. He came close to blowing his cover when Elena gave them the letter from Caroline’s mom. She wanted to burn it. Very reminiscent of Elena burning her house down. Stefan tried to stop her, but if he pushed too far, she would have seen through him, so he helped her burn the letter.

Will she chose a vampire life or a human life?

Will she chose a vampire life or a human life?

Damon shot both Stefan and Caroline with vervain in the B&B to make it seem like they were trying to get both of them to turn on their humanity switches. They really should have attacked Stefan too though. It was very one sided.

The letter clearly didn’t work, so Stefan went inside her head and showed her her mom being very disappointed. Also didn’t work. Caroline was on the brink of killing Stefan when he gave her a real memory. It was Stefan and Sheriff Forbes. He was asking her for a sewing kit to help repair the teddy bear. She told him she hoped he and Caroline would be more than friends. Stefan said it wasn’t the right time, he wanted it to happen when there was no loss or pain. He wanted it to be perfect. She told him, he’d be waiting a very long time. Stefan said he’s very patient.

Stefan asked Liz if he could mail the letter for her, the letter for Caroline. She said she wasn’t done with it, she wanted it to be perfect too. This brought Caroline back, she wanted to see more, but that was the end of the memory. She wanted to know what the letter said, but she had already burned it. All the pain came rushing back. She said she ruined everything.

When she calmed down a bit Stefan tried to talk to her, but she just couldn’t.

With Caroline’s humanity back on they can now concentrate on Lily. I don’t know if this woman has a humanity switch. She told Damon and Enzo that the only people that can keep her in check are her friends.

Enzo and Lily had an interesting conversation when Bonnie stood her up. She never abandoned him, that’s when she was taken. When Lily get’s into some trouble she calls Enzo. She had killed a man. She said cars are much quieter now. She didn’t even hear the car and startled the man in it by walking in front of the car.

She saw his veins pulsing and her pain was gone and she killed him, but then felt remorse after. How will they keep her in check?

Next week Elena and Damon discuss taking the cure together. Stefan says not to take the cure. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Vampire Diaries’: One Ripper Saved, One to Go

Lily is a very good liar.

Lily is a very good liar.

We had one brief episode without any enemies and now Damon is going to let out 6 vampires that are a very old bread, heretics. They are both witch and vampire. They can siphon magic from themselves. As Joe said, “imagine Kai with a blood lust of a vampire”. This is one scary creature and there’s six of them.

Damon only gave his mother the ascendant because he wanted desperately to save his brother. That was the only way he could get Lily to work with him. Now they have bigger problems.

Caroline and Stefan were terrorizing Whitmore. The episode started with Caroline betting Stefan she could scare someone to death. The dead guy over the balcony didn’t work, so she compelled him to have a heart attack and then not to breath and then told him he had spiders one him. Stefan was not happy she cheated, but she still won. So she got to do karaoke. To be honest, her singing with her humanity off, was even better than she did it before.

Things were about to get really dicey. Matt and Tyler stopped by to grab some food after their police training. They walked into Caroline and Stefan’s shenanigans. They tried to leave, but Stefan wouldn’t let them.

Caroline decided to play Caroline trivia. Tyler and Matt do know her very well, but the last question she asked was one they could never know. They didn’t know what her mother’s last memory was because they weren’t there. Stefan knew though, and he answered.

So then Caroline decided to play heads or tail to decide who she would kill. Tyler knocked the quarter out of her hand. Then he decided to attack them. Matt tried to convince him not to, but his temper was taking over. He went to stab Caroline and she blurred and by the time Tyler got to her, Matt was now there. He was stabbed.

Caroline trivia and then heads or tails! Barbie vamp was all about the games this week.

Caroline trivia and then heads or tails! Barbie vamp was all about the games this week.

Damon and Lily walked in and Stefan remembered her right away. Damon gave his keys to Matt and Tyler to get out of there.

Stefan knew Lily was there to get back his emotions. Caroline stabbed Stefan in the back and ran off.

Damon told Lily exactly what to say. She had no more feelings for her sons. She wasn’t coming back to get them when she was trapped in the prison world. So Damon had to tell her what he knew would get Stefan back and it worked like a charm.

Damon was giving Stefan one night to dwell on what he had done, but he said he didn’t need a night and was off to save Caroline.

Tyler took Matt to the hospital, where Matt wouldn’t let Elena heal him. Matt said he can’t hate vampires and then use them to his advantage. This was one of many things in this episode that made Elena feel bad about being a vampire for eternity.

It started with Lily asking Elena if she misses being human and she was only doing this because she over heard Bonnie giving Damon the cure.

Then Elena discovered Jo was pregnant and she was a little jealous. Elena felt really bad for reacting like that, but Jo understood. Elena discovered Joe was pregnant and her life flashed before her and the fact that she couldn’t have kids.

Will Damon give Elena the cure? He seems terrified of losing her.

This week we also go to see Enzo’s past. Enzo was going to introduce Sarah to her family, well Damon. Until Lily answered the door and he fled. It turns out Lily was the one who turned him. It was 1903 in South Hampton, England. Enzo was dying of consumption and was trying to board a ship to the U.S. with a doctor on board.

Lily helped him aboard and got him to see a doctor, only the doctor couldn’t save him. She promised him a new life and family, but instead turned him into a vampire and abandoned him.

No wonder Enzo and Damon get along so well.

Enzo first tried to set Sarah free. But she had taken vervain. She trapped him and wanted to know the whole story. Then he was going to turn her into a vampire, but he changed his mind. It was a rare nice moment for Enzo.

Next week Stefan is on a mission to save Caroline. Take a look at the promo:

Nina Dobrev Leaving ‘The Vampire Diaries’

TVDGleek3508 | photobucket.com

TVDGleek3508 | photobucket.com

Monday afternoon Nina Dobrev announced on Instagram that she would be leaving ‘The Vampire Diaries’ at the end of the season.

I was devastated as I read the news, as many other fans were too. The question that keeps going on in my mind is, how can there be a show without Elena? She’s the center of the series and I just don’t see how it can continue without her.

I had heard rumors for a while that Nina, 25, and her ex-boyfriend and co-star, Ian Somerhalder, weren’t getting a long on set after the break-up and one of them would be leaving the show. I hoped that it was all just rumors and that both actors would stay on till the end of the series.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that ‘TVD’ is coming back for a seventh season. The CW show was renewed for another season in January, but it definitely needed to be confirmed after the shocking news of the star leaving.

Rumors over the weekend also surfaced when crew members posted on social media photos of the cast and executive producer Julie Plec from the group trip with the hashtag #ninawewillmissyou, THR reported.

I don’t know if the rumors of Nina and Ian not getting along on set are true, but her leaving the show is now a reality. In her message to fans on Instagram she said she wanted Elena’s story to be six seasons. For Nina, it’s time for her to move on, but what about the show?

Can there really be a show without Elena Gilbert? The show has centered around her and the love triangle with the Salvatore brothers. I guess my hopes of Elena and Damon ending up together are ruined, seeing as Damon will be sticking around. I’m sure a lot of fans will be disappointed that Elena can’t end up with Damon or Stefan. How can this love triangle end with the girl not ending up with either guy?

Caroline (Candice Accola) is my favorite female character on ‘TVD’, but that doesn’t mean I won’t miss Elena when she’s gone. She may not be my favorite character, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t enjoyed her storyline and that I don’t believe that she’s integral to the storyline, because she’s very integral. There is no show without Elena and the Salvatore brothers. As much as I love Caroline, I think the show could go on without. I would personally be just as devastated if Candice left though.

Caroline has been becoming more central to the storyline, especially when it seems that Stefan and her might end up together. It will be nice if Stefan can end up with someone, but what about Damon? He only belongs with Elena.

I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around how the story can continue without Elena. Trying to picture life after Elena isn’t easy, especially when I’m still in shock about the news. I almost felt like crying when I read the news, but I was too in shock to process it. I’m sure I’ll be balling my eyes out on her last episode. Will the writers kill her off? Will she leave Mystic Falls forever? Will she take the cure? There’s so many questions!

In Nina’s statement on Instagram she said there’s still more to come for Elena’s crazy story, so anything could happen in her final episode and leading up to it.

I’ve enjoyed watching the love story between Damon and Elena, even while she was still with Stefan. It’s been a great journey and I’m saddened that it’s coming to an end, and not with them ending up together. I’m not sure how the writers can end Elena’s story to make me feel okay with it.

‘TVD’ returns Thursday, April 16 at 8/7c on the CW. This will be the beginning of the end for Elena and for her relationship with Damon. The season six finale will air Thursday, May 14. Are you ready to say goodbye to Elena Gilbert?

Here’s her message to fans on Instagram:

Dearest TVD Family,

I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there’s still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I’ll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever.

There’s more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you’ll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale (I have given an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for you to see!), but until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert’s life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her — and to my work family — as I move on to the next chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of you (this weekend’s pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for ‘that Twilight TV show.’ 😉 I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what’s coming, you don’t.

Love, Nina
