In case you’re not caught up, she’s been “sleeping” in a coffin for about three years now, under a spell that tied her life to Bonnie’s (Kat Graham).
So she isn’t supposed to be awake unless Bonnie is dead.
But since Kai (Chris Wood) is back in Mystic Falls – and he’s the one who created the spell – who knows what will happen.
“The nostalgia is insane,” Nina told EW, who has the first look at her return. “I keep getting triggered by moments: a piece of wardrobe, a person’s voice, a crew member’s laugh. It’s like a trip down memory lane, and I have so many beautiful memories of the six years that I spent here. I’m really glad that I got to be a part of it.”
Check out the first look at Nina below! Be sure to watch the first promo for the finale too!
The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 on The CW.
