Damon's Proposal to Elena Was Cut From 'The Vampire Diaries' Finale

While we were so satisfied with the end of The Vampire Diaries, a major moment had to be cut that we would have loved to see!

Executive producer Kevin Williamson just revealed that Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) proposal to Elena (Nina Dobrev) was left on the cutting room floor due to time constraints in the episode.

“We actually had a moment, which we didn’t have time for — everything got cut,” Kevin told TVGuide.com. “I think the first cut came in 18 minutes over. And there was a moment in the show where he proposed and she responded after medical school. And the whole point of that moment was just to show that she became a doctor. And so we thought, ‘Oh, we’ll just put her in scrubs and we can cut that piece.””

In case you missed it, Kevin also recently talked about why Stefan (Paul Wesley) had to die in the finale.

TELL JJJ: Would you have wanted to see the Delena proposal?

    They should of made it a 2 hour finale

    Somehow I don’t believe it was because of time constraints bullshit!

    Stupid decision. Reading their interviews it seems Kevin and Julie were happy with their odd little finale – it obviously didn’t matter to them the plot was full of holes, it was hastily and sloppily put together, and they short-changed all the fans waiting for an epic Delena reunion after they chose to build up for so many years. It felt not only disappointing but like a slap in the face. They had plenty of time for better planning and could have had a 2 hour finale but took the easier route. It is sad that a show that was so high quality for a long time would end so poorly. I hope they at least have the courtesy to put any deleted scenes on the DVDs.
