The end is coming sooner than we’d hoped — but we can assume that also means some of our favorite characters could be making a comeback. Besides Elena of course, there are a few more that we’ve lost along the way that need to show up before the show wraps.
“I would not be me if we were not revisiting some old faces,” Julie Plec told our sister publication TVLine at Comic Con. “There’s a lot of people we’ve loved. This is a year about celebrating what the series has been and what it’s felt like to be together an love these characters. We will find interesting, creative — whether through a memory or flashback or some other surprise — we’ll find ways to say hello and goodbye to those people again.”
So, who will Julie and co. bring back? Well, here’s my list of characters I’d love to see back. First of all, let me point out that Elena is not on this list, because in my heart of hearts, I know that she’ll be back. So here are some others I’d love to see. Also, let’s put death aside. We know it doesn’t really matter on TVD.
Uncle Mason // Taylor Kinney
Julie even said in the video that he was a top pick for her. And why wouldn’t he be. Plus, if you get him it’s kind of a two-in-one deal with…
Jeremy Gilbert // Steven R. McQueen
He literally just moved away, so if we don’t get him back, there’s a problem. Plus, he’s on Chicago Fire with Uncle Mason now!
Tyler Lockwood // Michael Trevino
No one really knows where Tyler’s been, so I’d be thrilled to see him jog back into town (preferably shirtless) with his Uncle.
Klaus Mikalson // Joseph Morgan
Julie, I have faith in you. Klaus may be in New Orleans these days, but we all know that he loves Mystic Falls. And if not, I’d be okay with at least one last Klaroline phone call for the road.
Jenna Sommers // Sara Canning
Jenna may have been murdered by the above, but again, I’d be happy with a flashback — maybe even a memory from Alaric. Let’s be honest, we could do a list of the women Alaric’s lost. Poor guy.
John Gilbert // David Anders
Speaking of the Gilberts, John has to make the list. Elena’s Uncle/Dad may be spending his time around The CW corner on iZombie, but he was an iVampire before all that.
Sheriff Forbes // Marguerite MacIntyre
We know she’s not coming back, but this would be one hell of a flashback or memory that could come from either Damon or Caroline — either way, very emotional and I’m now tearing up thinking about it.
Katherine Pierce // Nina Dobrev
Okay, I said I wouldn’t mention Elena, I didn’t say anything about Katherine. Now, I’m pretty sure she went off to Hell when she was sucked away — but who says that’s not where Damon is these days.
Anna Zhu // Malese Jow
Anna was one of the most underrated vamps on the show, but her love story with Jer was pretty adorable.
Vicki Donovan // Kayla Ewell
Speaking of Jeremy’s loves, Vicki was gone too soon and literally connected to the entire town. She dated Tyler in his bad boy days and of course was Matt’s sister. And Matt needs some love in his life these days.
