Damon must decide whether to tell Elena about the cure in The Vampire Diaries 6×19 “Because” episode!
In The Vampire Diaries synopsis for the 6×19 “Because” Damon is faced with deciding whether to tell Elena about the cure, knowing it could end their relationship.
Damon isn’t the only one whose life may go topsy-turvy as season 6 airs it’s last four episodes. Caroline is still humanity-free, Bonnie is pissed at Damon (again), and Enzo learns some info he wasn’t expecting.
The cure may have come into play because of the fact that Nina Dobrev, who plays Elena, is leaving the series. The rumors became fact on Monday, April 6th, 2015, when it was officially announced that she would be leaving after this season. Before season 6 began reports indicated that one of the three stars wasn’t signing on for a 7th season, so now we know it was Nina.
So how will Elena’s life on the series end? Since she was re-evaluating her life after finding out Jo was going to have a baby, she could decide to take the cure and move away from Mystic Falls to begin a new, mortal, life. This would leave the possibility of returning in guest appearances, similar to Claire Holt on The Originals.
Or they could kill Elena off. That would definitely be cruel and unusual punishment after 6 seasons and numerous doppleganger roles. Nina has stated that when a character dies they should really stay dead, otherwise fans won’t care or believe they’re really dead, because somehow they’ll always come back.
Nina isn’t the only cast member leaving. Michael Trevino will also be leaving the series as a regular, but according to Julie Plec he’ll always be a part of the family and they’re looking forward to “finding creative ways to make sure he and his character Tyler Lockwood always remain a part of the show.” Earlier this season Steven R. McQueen, Jeremy Gilbert, also left the series as a regular.
Perhaps Tyler and Elena will ride off into the sunset together. Elena to burn up and Tyler to bury the ashes.
