Thus, it is still not very clear that whether the death of Bonnie will lead to the awakening of Elena, but a clipping of a teaser of The "Vampire Diaries" season 8 has put forward a clue that the return of Elena is linked with the death of Bonnie.

The TVD series finale, "I Was Feeling Epic," revealed in the final minutes that Klaus somehow got word of Caroline opening the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted after her husband Stefan (Paul Wesley) died, and sent a $3 million donation along with a letter that read, "Dear Caroline, I have often imagined the paths your life might take, but your chosen future is more noble than I ever fathomed".

Julie Plec, who co-created and executive produced The Vampire Diaries, told Variety that the timing to end the series just felt right after so long, saying, "The reason that we chose to actually end it in the first place was that the themes in the season were so specific to an ending". While the night marks the end of an era, the bigger headline is the return of Nina Dobrev as the show's original main character, Elena Gilbert. Elena told her that Stefan heard the voicemail she left him, where she told him she would love him forever and she understood why he did what he did. She could see my lip quivering and the snot bubbling and she was like, 'Zach, this is a free one.

Dobrev departed from the show after her contract expired in Season 6, but she vowed to come back for the finale to wrap up Elena's storyline, and the wait is going to be worth it, said actor Ian Somerhalder, who plays her on-screen love interest Damon, as well as executive producer Julie Plec.

After the decision to end the series was official, Plec created two lists of what she wanted to include in the lead-up to the conclusion: "We had two hit lists". Entertainment Weekly earlier reported that Elena will be seen crying while standing in the Mystic Falls cemetery. That being said, we do have crossover elements in the upcoming season of "The Originals" that's about to start airing.

As for how the series will end, there are many fan theories, including one that Damon will sacrifice himself to save those he loves. Stefan will do what he can to ensure Bonnie's safety.
