Elena Gilbert is really returning for the series finale of The Vampire Diaries.
It was already confirmed a few weeks back by Dobrev, but now we have our first glimpse at the return of the iconic character in a teaser for the series finale.
Dobrev departed The CW hit at the close of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 when her character was linked to Kat Graham's Bonnie Bennett.
It meant that Elena would not be able to return to the land of the living until Bonnie was no longer living. It was a brutal twist, but there's probably a way around that.
This show is known for its illogical magical loopholes, so you can expect Elena Gilbert and Bonnie Bennett to share some touching scenes as the series closes up shop.
in the official teaser for the final episode, Elena meets up with her former love, Stefan Salvatore.
The character knows this meeting could come due to her best friend being dead, but would Stefan really be smiling if that was the case?
Kai returned on the most recent episode of the series and made a run for it with Elena's body, so that will likely be tied to her return.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries Season 8, the characters have been battling with Cade, who is the devil.
