'The Vampire Diaries' Spoilers: Did Nina Dobrev Get Killed Off?


Nina Dobrev said goodbye to Elena Gilbert on tonight’s heartbreaking and epic season six finale of The Vampire Diaries.

A big question on everyone’s minds has been whether Elena survived Kai’s (Chris Wood) attack last week, and we finally got our answer.

Kai actually linked Elena’s life to Bonnie’s (Kat Graham), so she will live in a casket until Bonnie dies! And Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had the chance to let his BFF Bonnie die, but he chose not to, knowing that he could live happily ever after with Elena in about 60 or 70 years.

We got a goodbye scene between Elena and every character – including a returning Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) – and it was nothing short of heartbreaking.

Will Nina Dobrev's Character Elena Die Tonight on 'Vampire Diaries' Finale?

Spoiler alert! Minor spoilers ahead for the season finale of TVD.

The Vampire Diaries season finale is tonight and the big question everyone wants to know is…Will they kill off Elena (Nina Dobrev)!?

“Well…” executive producer Julie Plec started to tell E! News. “I don’t know how to answer that without either hinting a yes or hinting a no. I’ll just say that we’re very happy with the choice we made about how to handle her character’s departure. We’ll see if everyone agrees. We always knew how [Elena] was going to go, but we just didn’t know at what point. We were still talking about whether we’d be able to move that into season seven or not. We definitely knew the ending.”

Cast member Michael Trevino also weighed in on the issue. “It’s an end note for sure,” he said of Nina’s departure. “It’s a big period at the end of the sentence, if you will. It’s beautiful. As we know, Nina Dobrev is leaving our show so we put a stamp of an ending there for our beloved Elena.”

“They did a beautiful job with her send off,” Michael added. “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a cliffhanger, but it definitely is a, ‘where do we go from here?’ You’re going to be asking yourself, what is season seven going to be about? It’s mysterious in a way.”

Nina Dobrev has nothing, but wonderful things to say about ex Ian Somerhalder, who just married Nikki Reed!

News. “I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him. And that didn’t change. Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.”

She added about Ian‘s wedding, “When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy, and so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that… Of course, we’re on a teen drama show, everyone’s going to look for drama…I just ignore it.”

'Vampire Diaries' Creator Tried to Get Nina Dobrev to Stay

The Vampire Diaries co-creator Julie Plec is speaking out about Nina Dobrev‘s decision to leave the long-running CW series after this season ends.

“She was just looking forward to moving on with no hard feelings and no drama,” Julie said on the KCRW podcast last week. “This is taking the personal out of it completely, from a storytelling point of view it’s a great challenge. As writers in the room we’re finding it very rejuvenating. Just on a strictly creative exercise level.”

Nina had said earlier this year that she wanted to be done and we spent a little bit of time trying to talk her out of it. [We'd say,] ‘Oh, look at all these great plans of how you can stay!’” she explained. “And she finally was like, ‘No, I signed up for six years. I’ve done my six years. I’m ready to move on and spread my wings.’”

Julie explained why she decided to have fans learn the news before the episode airs, unlike the time Josh Charles was killed off The Good Wife.

“A lot of people had a hard time with that. It was a beautiful shock, but there’s grief attached to that. And I’m looking at Vampire Diaries, which is now six years deep, and it’s the main character,” she said. “A lot of our audience — they’re still teenagers — and there is a profound attachment to this character and to this show. I started looking at it from a fan point of view and being like, ‘We need to tell them that it’s happening before it happens. You can’t just end the season and do what we’re going to do to this character.”
