May 14th: (SPOILERS) Everything You Need To Know About Nina Dobrev’s “Vampire Diaries” Exit

Jen | Categories: Interviews, Julie Plec, Season 6, Season 7, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on (SPOILERS) Everything You Need To Know About Nina Dobrev’s “Vampire Diaries” Exit

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS, DO NOT READ ANY FARTHER IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!!!!

In her first interview detailing the departure of her show’s leading lady, executive producer Julie Plec tells BuzzFeed News how she approached writing Dobrev off the show, what the actor’s final days on set were like, and where the show goes from here. WARNING: Spoilers ahead if you have not seen the May 14 Season 6 finale, “I’m Thinking of You All the While.”

When news broke on April 6 that Nina Dobrev would be leaving The Vampire Diaries — The CW’s ratings-crushing, bloodsucking drama she’s starred on since it launched in 2009 — fans were shocked.

But the show’s executive producer Julie Plec was not.

Dobrev had called Plec in January with the heartbreaking news that she would not be renewing her contract for Season 7. And as sad as Plec was to see the actor she called her “little sister” go, she was excited to rise to the storytelling challenge. Plec devised a very intricate exit for Dobrev’s character, the newly human again Elena Gilbert. Instead of killing Elena off (as many feared) or simply having the character leave Mystic Falls (as many assumed), this season’s big bad — witch-vampire hybrid Kai Parker (Chris Wood) — bound Elena’s life force to that of her best friend and witch Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham). In short, as long as Bonnie is alive, Elena will lie comatose (she’s now resting comfortably inside the Salvatore family crypt).
