With Elena Gilbert all gone, the love triangle and the romances in the American supernatural drama TV series “The Vampire Diaries” on The CW network are about to be gone too.
So when Season 7 of “The Vampire Diaries” starts airing late this year, the entire premise of the series will dramatically change. Without Nina Dobrev’s character, the show will finally find its true identity which is about friendships and the craziness of being a vampire in Mystic Falls, notes Hypable.
The title of the show was meant to be that way in the first place but with the love triangle and the romances being highlighted all the more in the series’ past two seasons, it has wandered off course.
A test case or an end?
While the show creators and the production team may still be thinking of how the series can thrive for its Season 7, the upcoming season will also be a test case if “The Vampire Diaries” can continue to hold its own without Nina Dobrev in it or whether it can go back to its initial premise and make good of it.
In any case, the creators of the “The Vampire Diaries” should consider ending the series on Season 7 in order to wrap it on a high note because further pressing it would make them appear as trying too hard to continue something that is no longer worth continuing.
The Season 6 finale already gave fans a preview of what’s in store for Mystic Falls come Season 7. There will be a time jump and the town will be torn apart by the heretics that also came during Season 6.
It would surely not take two full seasons for Damon and his vampire friends to solve the problems brought about by the heretics and Kai because 23 episodes would be more than sufficient to bring viewers the right amount of drama and tie whatever loose ends the show has made over the course of seven seasons.
Season 6 finale
The season finale of “The Vampire Diaries” Season 6 aired on May 14 and it turned out to be what it was earlier hyped – a post-mortal tribute to Nina Dobrev’s Elena Gilbert character.
As early as April, Nina Dobrev has formally quit the “The Vampire Diaries” after six years so the creators had to find a way in order to retire her Elena Gilbert character. They finally found a good storyline to do so and it will happen on the season finale of Season 6 of the TV series.
During episode 18 of the series, Elena Gilbert and Damon finally agreed to start a family of their own. That set the character up to leave the show for good by making it appear that Elena will concentrate on making her own family and live a normal human life again.
