But luckily, we found some scoop on season seven that will hold us over for a bit.
According to executive producer Caroline Dries, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) will have a much bigger storyline in the Fall – more specifically, right in the middle of the war between Lily and her sons Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder).
“He’s eventually going to have to choose a side,” Caroline told TVLine.com. “In some ways, he feels drawn to Lily; she turned him and she’s the only real family he has. But he’s also friends with Damon, so it’s going to create an interesting dilemma, and whichever side he chooses will have serious ramifications.”

So it turns out, Kai actually linked Elena’s life to Bonnie’s (Kat Graham), so she will live in a casket until Bonnie dies! And Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had the chance to let his BFF Bonnie die, but he chose not to, knowing that he could live happily ever after with Elena in about 60 or 70 years.
We got a goodbye scene between Elena and every character – including a returning Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) – and it was nothing short of heartbreaking.
We caught up with the 28-year-old actress at the CW Upfronts where she gave us some scoop on Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline – aka Steroline – and what she thinks of Caroline’s journey this season.
“I think that Caroline’s definitely changed,” she told JJJ. “I think the fact that in last week’s episode she told Stefan, ‘Look, I really like you. Let’s do this, but I had a really crazy year, so I need some time for myself. That is a very mature response. I don’t think I’ve ever been that mature in my entire life. I think it’s really special and cool. Especially going into next season and even tonight’s finale, there’s a really sweet Stefan and Caroline moment that I think fans of the couple will like.”
Meanwhile, Kat Graham talked to us about Bonnie and Damon (Ian Somerhalder), saying, “I think had to get worse before it got better and I think it’s definitely gotten worse. I think they had to hate each other before they could love each other, for sure.”

JustJaredJr.com: We’ve seen a lot of different villains on this show. Some worked, some maybe didn’t. Why do you think Kai resonated with fans so much?
Chris Wood: What I love is that he’s truly evil and as an audience, we really get to see no redeemable qualities about this character, especially toward the end, he’s really pretty awful. And I know going into the arc for the season, both [executive producers] Julie Plec and Caroline Dries wanted to introduce a character who was different than all the other villains – by having a truly psychotic character who has no feelings whatsoever and just really had a different mental state. He wasn’t redeemable in a lot of ways some of the other villains were shown to be. Damon [Ian Somerhalder] ended up going from being pretty awful to the love interest of the show. And Klaus [Joseph Morgan] sort of found a nice balance between being like an anti-hero and still having a badness too him too. I think they really wanted a different perspective.

Minor spoilers ahead for The Vampire Diaries fans!
The Vampire Diaries will be wrapping up another season tonight (May 14) and the biggest question fans have been asking is whether or not Elena (Nina Dobrev) will be killed off.
“Well…” executive producer Julie Plec started to tell E! News. “I don’t know how to answer that without either hinting a yes or hinting a no. I’ll just say that we’re very happy with the choice we made about how to handle her character’s departure. We’ll see if everyone agrees. We always knew how [Elena] was going to go, but we just didn’t know at what point. We were still talking about whether we’d be able to move that into season seven or not. We definitely knew the ending.”
Cast member Michael Trevino also weighed in on the issue. “It’s an end note for sure,” he said of Nina’s departure. “It’s a big period at the end of the sentence, if you will. It’s beautiful. As we know, Nina Dobrev is leaving our show so we put a stamp of an ending there for our beloved Elena.”
“They did a beautiful job with her send off,” Michael added. “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a cliffhanger, but it definitely is a, ‘where do we go from here?’ You’re going to be asking yourself, what is season seven going to be about? It’s mysterious in a way.”
