Will Damon and Elena ride off into the sunset together when Nina Dobrev leaves the series at the end of its current season? It’s possible, considering Damon vowed to take the cure with Elena on the April 23 episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ Plus, Caroline finally flips her switch.
As we get closer and closer to Nina Dobrev‘s exit from The Vampire Diaries, a lot of changes are happening for our favorite folks in Mystic Falls. On the April 23 episode, Elena finally found out about Damon (Ian Somerhalder) having the cure, Bonnie (Kat Graham) pissed off Lily, and Stefan (Paul Wesley) worked hard to turn Caroline’s (Candice Accola) emotions back on.
‘The Vampire Diaries’: Damon & Elena Taking The Cure? — Season 6 Episode 19 Recap
We knew the cure would eventually come into play, but we never though Elena would find out about it this quickly! But we have Lily to thank for that. After Bonnie stole the ascendent from the Salvatore house, Lily was quick to blame Damon. In retaliation, she then found the cure he was hiding in a shoebox and pretended to throw it in a fire. But in actuality, she put it on a silver platter for Elena to find. When Elena confronted Damon about the cure, he suggested they take it together — what?!
Elsewhere in Mystic Falls, Damon, Elena and Stefan locked Caroline in a bed and breakfast so that they could get her to turn her emotions back on. They did this by trapping Stefan inside with her, as she was unaware he already flipped his emotions back on. So he was working from the inside, at least until she realized his fakery and then went ballistic. Stefan ended up infusing memories of Sheriff Forbes into Caroline’s mind after she passed out from dehydration. These evoked a bunch of emotions and Caroline eventually flipped her switch back on. Of course, Caroline was super upset that she burned her mom’s final letter to her in the process.
We’re happy Caroline’s back to her old self, but we’re not so sure she and Stefan will be an official couple just yet. It seems like she needs to continue grieving the death of her mother first. And as far as Damon and Elena are concerned, it’d be nice to see them both ride off into the sunset together. That might be the only way we accept Nina’s departure from the show.
