“Goodbye Elena” shows clips of Elena’s journey as it ends in 6×22 “I’m Thinking of You All the While” finale!
The debate over which brother is Elena Gilbert’s true love ends tonight in the season 6 finale, as Nina Dobrev makes her final appearance. As executive producer Caroline Dries said, “The challenge was showing fans there are stories out there, even without Elena in this world.”
Executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries knew for awhile that Nina wanted to leave at the end of season 6, so it gave them a chance to write the whole season around her exit, and give her a satisfying ending to her journey. One thing they made clear was that Elena would NOT be dragged to Hell the way her doppelganger Katherine Pierce was. That Hell was only for evildoers.
Damon’s plans have been drastically altered thanks to Kai’s return. Instead of taking the cure and sailing off into the sunset with the love of his life, he’s faced with making a terrible decision.
Caroline Dries on Damon’s decision
Can the character once known as Selfish Damon put others before himself, even if it means losing Elena?
She reveals that Caroline and Stefan are at a crossroads and where they end up “will be satisfying – and really surprising.”
Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler Lockwood, is also leaving as a series regular, but they’re keeping the door open so he can return. As Caroline says, “We love both the character and Michael.”
As season 6 ends, she confirms that Elena won’t be coming back, but she promises “a beautiful end to her story,” and is excited for fangsters to see how they finish Elena’s six year journey.

GOODBYE, MYSTIC FALLS – In the aftermath of Alaric (Matt Davis) and Jo’s (guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) powerful nuptials, things take a dramatic turn when an uninvited guest shows up, leaving Elena (Nina Dobrev) in terrible jeopardy. Despite Matt’s (Zach Roerig) advice to leave town to protect herself, a defiant Bonnie (Kat Graham) takes matters into her own hands after finding herself on the receiving end of a twisted plan. As Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) reach an emotional crossroad in their relationship, a reunion with Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell) leaves Tyler (Michael Trevino) faced with a decision that could change his life forever. Meanwhile, Lily’s (guest star Annie Wersching) reckless actions cause Stefan to realize the lengths to which his mother will go to reunite with her “family.” Finally, after a devastating chain of events, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is forced to make the most difficult decision of his life. Michael Malarkey also stars.
