Nina Dobrev previews Elena’s downward spiral ‘into a black hole of death and sadness and misery.’ Yeah, it’s about to get real in Mystic Falls.
While many Vampire Diaries fans refuse to accept that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) really died at the hand(s) of Silas last week, his on-screen sister confirms his passing in a shocking new interview with Entertainment Tonight. In a nutshell — emphasis on the nut part — Elena’s got a rough road ahead of her. “Elena could go off the deep end now that she doesn’t have the one thing that kept her human,” Nina Dobrev reveals. “She won’t take it lightly. It’s going to destroy her.”
So how bad are things going to get? Nina has no shortage of adjectives when it comes to describing Elena’s epic downfall.
“Losing Jeremy really, really, really changes Elena,” Nina explains. “Sometimes people recover from tragedy, and sometimes they don’t — but it’s a long journey for her. … She goes off the deep end and spirals downwards into a black hole of death and sadness and misery.”
Steven R. McQueen’s Reaction To Jeremy’s Death
We know how Nina felt when she first found out Jeremy was dying, and we definitely know how the fans felt, but what about Steven? Nina says her on-screen brother was able to take the good with the bad when it came to his untimely passing.
“I know Steven was very bummed, but also excited because he had a lot to do leading up to it,” she says. “His character grew and became so strong. It’s bittersweet but made for some amazing television.”
