Wait a minute, who is that? In the trailer for ‘The Vampire Diaries’ season seven finale, Damon utters a name that gives us a little ping of hope/wondering/confusion for the return of Elena Gilbert.
Could that be? Could Elena Gilbert really be the “evil” Damon and Enzo are looking for inside the vault? We’re not sure how that would be, but in the new promo for The Vampire Diaries finale, airing this Friday the 13th, it sure appears that way. Watch it here.
“This thing in the vault, do we know what it is?” Stefan (Paul Welsey) asks in the trailer. “Bad,” Damon (Ian Somerhalder) responds. Well, that’s a little vague. In case you need a catch up, the guys are reopening the vault after Bonnie sealed it, since they’re looking to sever the curse put on her — she’s currently a vampire hunter and from the promo, it looks like she now has her eyes on Enzo.
At the end of the quick promo, Damon is on the phone when he sees a shadow inside the vault. With that, he whispers, “Elena?”
Now here’s my thought: Elena isn’t bad. The only way she could return is if Bonnie dies. However, if Damon and Stefan somehow break the curse, save Bonnie from being a vampire hunter and save her from the poison that Enzo’s been feeding her, maybe they can also break the link between the bodies, and Elena can return.
I feel like that’s a stretch but on this show, you just never know. There’s also another way it could be Nina Dobrev. Who else remembers when Katherine died — she was sent to hell, and we know she is evil. I’m kind of a fan of that theory: Nina returning to the show as Katherine. What do you think, HollywoodLifers?
The Vampire Diaries airs on Friday at 8PM on The CW.
