This is what we know: Nina Dobrev is leaving The Vampire Diaries.
This is what we also know: Elena Gilbert was left unconscious at the end of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 21 after Kai crashed his sister's wedding and committed a couple heinous acts of violence.
So this is what we're now wondering: Is Elena dead?
The official CW teaser (above) for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 22 certainly implies a sad goodbye is on tap, but will the series really go there?
Will it really kill Elena off?
We say no.
Producer Julie Plec has already said there will be a flash forward on the finale, while the network synopsis teases a "difficult decision" ahead for Damon.
So this is our prediction: Elena will live. Damon will realize that life as a human is too perilous for her. And, as a result, he will compel Elena to forget all about him and her time in Mystic Falls.
He'll send her away and the show will then temporarily jump ahead, giving us a look at Elena's happy, carefree life somewhere far away from her dangerous home town.
What do you think of this forecast? Do you hope it becomes a reality?
Or would you rather see Elena get killed off?
