Valentine’s Day brings up images of couples in romantic bliss. The memory of one couple in particular comes to mind, Damon and Elena of the TV series “Vampire Diaries”.
The couple had fans infatuated for six seasons of “The Vampire Diaries.” Delena’s love story even surpassed those of other iconic couples who graced the small screen, the New York Post remarked.
Alas, the couple’s romance ended with Elena’s departure at the end of season 6. However, the show did not totally kill off Elena’s character. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last year, executive producer Julie Plec explained how it went down.
Plec shared, “I knew, fundamentally, killing Elena Gilbert would be the worst possible way to say goodbye to that character, I don’t know if anybody — Nina Dobrev herself! — could have talked me into that. We had to tragically put an end to a character for the moment and make it seem final and permanent — which it is — [while] also leaving a door open with hope for the future. Which there is. That was what we set out to do, and I think we succeeded in doing that.”
In the spoilers for Season 7, fans saw the comeback of Tyler. Is Elena due for a comeback as well?
