“The Vampire Diaries” will be very different when it returns for Season 7. Now that Nina Dobrev has departed the show, her character Elena Gilbert is locked away in a coffin in the Salvatore family crypt. If you are wondering what’s going to happen next season, then you’re in luck because I have some spoilers to share.
In the final moments of the season 6 finale, it was teased that next season there’s going to be a time jump, maybe in the sense that it will be after a few months or even years after Elena’s death-slash-sleeping situation to divert the focus of fans.
Julie Plec, executive producer of the show has teased that the focus for the 7th season will be on the relationship of the Salvatore brothers, which will grow stronger than ever especially now that they have to face their mother and her family of heretics. They will also resolve what happened to Alaric as well as explain the disappearance of Tyler (Michael Trevino).
Plec and Caroline Dries also hinted that Stefan and Caroline’s “love story” will “become the heart and soul of the season 7.” Well, things are indeed changing for “TVD” as it evolves into something more.
From these spoilers, it is quite clear that there is going to be a huge shift in focus. Throughout the six seasons of the show, our main focus was Elena Gilbert and her relationship with the Salvator brothers. And now that she’s gone, there’s going to be a new “her and Damon” on the show, which will be Stefan and Caroline. Something fresh and new.
Ian Somerhalder also teased that fans may see a return of the Damon Salvatore of Seasons 1 & 2. Yes, the mean Damon and I guess we will see that during the first few episodes of Season 7 because as Season 6 put it, Damon isn’t good when it comes to handling losses and with the love of his life gone, he’s not going to take it easily. However, fans don’t have to worry because he said, “That’s what I’m excited about. Season 1 and 2 of the show is where people fell in love this guy; it’s where I fell in love with this guy. The story is just going to change form and I think that we get to go back to this really awesome dark, edgy, volatile [story]- all the sh*t that we all love.”
