The Vampire Diaries Season 8: No Crossover with The Originals; Evil Damon Reigns Over Season Premiere

The CW supernatural series The Vampire Diaries will return with its final season in two days. The show has been keeping under strict cover the news of fan favorite star Nina Dobrev’s return. But regarding the show’s alleged crossover with sister series The Originals, fans may have a clearer picture.

The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec announced sadly that the show’s timeline will no longer match that of The Originals when Season 8 starts. Till season 7, the possibility could have worked out which is why Caroline went to New Orleans for Klaus Mikaelson. But as she found out, there was no Klaus to seek help from, as the hero had been taken down by then.

“Seeing as in our timeline every single person is in a coffin scattered across the country in New Orleans, I don’t think we’ll see [the trip to New Orleans] happen on camera,” said Plec. The Vampire Diaries Season 8 begins three years into the future, whereas The Originals begins five years later. TVD will wrap up before Klaus wakes up from his pain-induced coma.

Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries will see its hero return to his glorious bad guy avatar. The new season takes on a very intense turn with Damon Salvatore at his evil best. The villain who feeds his and Enzo’s mind with evil is an unknown creature with a deep mythological background. Nathalie Kelley will play the new villain called Sybil, noted Yibada.

Readers of the TVD book would recall a time when an evil power Shinichi possessed his mind. It had fed it with evil thoughts, prompting him to even hurt his brother Stefan. Sybil seems to be a loose yet far more deadly adaptation of the character.

And Damon’s present state of mind does not help either. “Damon’s a bit of a loose cannon,” said Ian Somerhalder. “His girl is in a box, he’s been through hell and high water, and so him being susceptible to this sort of new energy just sort of feeds into the times.”

Somerhalder also teased that things would get even more complex and intense between Damon and Stefan in Season 8. The Vampire Diaries will have its final premiere on Oct. 21, 2016. Do not miss out on this one.
