The Vampire Diaries‘ finale writer Brian Young spoke with TVGuide about the episode and whether or not Damon uttering Elena’s name meant what we all hoped.

“At Damon’s core, his relationship with Elena is and always will be paramount to him,” Brian said. “So Damon, while he’s willing to do anything for his friends, if he even hears a glimpse of what could be Elena, it changes his whole perspective on anything.

He added, “As much as he wants to go out and live his life, that will always be part of him. If she’s in play, it changes his whole perspective.”

Ian Somerhalder Clarifies 'The Vampire Diaries' End Date Statements, Says Season 8 Will Be His Last

Ian Somerhalder is clarifying his statements last week that The Vampire Diaries will be ending after eight seasons.

Last week, the 37-year-old actor told reporters, “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.”

Now, Ian has taken to Twitter to explain, saying that it will be his last season.

“Hey all, so… Last weekend I talked to an audience at a Q&A about the end of #TVD and how excited I was to make what I believe – my last year – be as great as possible. Somehow in my infinite wisdom and end-of-season foggy brain, I managed to make it sound like the show was coming to an end. Cut-to the press running stories that the show would be done after Season 8. Thing is, the people who actually make that decision (the CW and WB) haven’t made it yet! So let’s take things one step at a time: Season 7 wrap, vacation, lots of sleep, let the writers get started on Season 8, and then we’ll all see where we go from there. Until then, much love ;),” Ian tweeted.
