*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Elena’s life is tied to Bonnie’s, so viewers thought in order for Elena to come back to life, Bonnie would have to die… and the writers wouldn’t do that. Right?
Well, yes and no.
Being The Vampire Diaries, it’s all about the loopholes. The new preview reveals that Bonnie dies for just a moment, long enough for Elena to, you know, casually climb out of her casket.
And then we all get the heartfelt reunion between Elena and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) below, which you’re lying if you’re not looking forward to. (It’s okay. We’re crying, too.)
The series finale airs tomorrow, March 10, on The CW.
