The season 6 finale of The Vampire Diaries is upon us and we not only say farewell to an amazing and interesting season, we say goodbye to Elena Gilbert and Tyler Lockwood. The TVD season 6 finale, “I’m Thinking of You All the While” airs tonight on The CW at 8/7c.
In April 2015, Nina Dobrev and Michael Trevino announced they were departing The Vampire Diaries. Nina who portrays Elena Gilbert stated she always felt her character arc shouldn’t go beyond six seasons, so it was time to move on and explore other ventures. Michael Trevino who plays Tyler Lockwood, found another opportunity on the new ABC project, Kingmakers. We are sad to see them go, but excited for what lies ahead for both of these talented actors. Also, it is exciting to see how The Vampire Diaries team will construct season 7.
As for tonight, rumors are flying around as to what will happen to these characters in the season finale, “I’m Thinking of You All the While”. Some speculate that Tyler will meet his fatal end, while Elena who is now human will have her memories taken away by compulsion. We will find out tonight.
Let’s get a preview into The Vampire Diaries, season 6, episode 22, “I’m Thinking of You All the While” that was directed by Chris Grismer and written by Executive Producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries:
In the aftermath of Alaric (Matt Davis) and Jo’s (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) powerful nuptials, things take a dramatic turn when an uninvited guest shows up, leaving Elena 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 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.
