how will they get rid of Elena?
So by now every TVD fan and there mom have already heard the news about Nina Dobrev leaving the show. Seriously my mom found out like day of the infamous Instagram send off. Its hard to say that you didn't see this coming. But being the ever so dedicated fan that you are you denied it. Pretended it wasn't true. Going along with your Thursday nights the same way you always have. But after seeing A Bird In A Gilded Cage you knew the rumors were true. No need for Nina to come out and say shes leaving the show. Bonnie bringing the cure back to 2015 as a bff offering to Damon confirmed it. Here's where my theory comes in. We all know how badly Damon wanted to give the cure to Elena the first time around. And with a whole new *cough old* cure he finally has his chance. We all know what will happen to the Vampire after the cure is taken. *Back to human... accelerated aging... Death...* So as sad as it will be *not to mention weird* to go into season 7 Elenaless. I think its really the only way they can do it. This will put an official end to the character. And give Nina the freedom to do other projects. Plus we all know that death on this show doesn't always mean forever. Although I feel that she wont be returning. The phrase "never say never" keeps coming to mind. What do you think? Is the cure Elena's way out? Or will they find another way to say goodbye?
