We don’t know much about season eight of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ except that it’ll be a dark one. The new poster for the final season was just revealed showing the funeral of someone — so let’s dissect.
“The End Awakens.” Three words could mean oh so much, making them the perfect tagline of season eight. The new poster, shared just hours before the final season premiere of The Vampire Diaries, shows the crew we love back together — but not for a pleasant experience.
Enzo, Bonne, Damon, Alaric, Caroline, Stefan and Matt are all together in the rain, gathered under umbrellas — in front of a coffin. It’s clear that they’re at a funeral — of Elena, we can assume — as the rest of them are all there. Here’s a description of each face we see (everyone looks very dapper in their black, I must say).
Enzo and Bonnie are standing side by side,with arms interlocked, and she looks straight up pissed, while he’s distracted. Damon is as well, standing alone, staring into the distance. Caroline looks to be supporting Stefan, who looks like he really needs a hug. Matt is back in Mystic Falls (for some reason) and also staring off into the distance, looking distraught. As for Enzo, who is now permanently part of the group, is the only one staring at the coffin.
The poster was shared first through our sister publication, TVLine. Who do you think is in the coffin? The final season of The Vampire Diaries premieres tonight at 8PM ET on The CW.
