The final season of The Vampire Diaries ended with a time jump

The final season of The Vampire Diaries ended with a time jump that found Elena Gilbert (played by Nina Dobrev) living a happy, human life with Damon Salvatore (played by Ian Somerhalder). Of course, this means that Stefan Salvatore (played by Paul Wesley) is off on his own adventures. While it’s always possible that the series could come back for a reboot or a spin-off, it seems like the show is really over. So what does the ending mean?

For starters, it means that Elena Gilbert is finally able to live her life without being pulled into the world of vampires and supernatural beings. For years, she was caught up in a love triangle with Damon and Stefan Salvatore, two vampire brothers. She was also constantly being put in danger because of her connection to them. In the end, she chose Damon and they were able to have a happy ending.

It also means that Stefan Salvatore is finally able to be at peace. He struggled for years with his identity as a vampire and trying to be good. He sacrificed himself for Damon and Elena numerous times. In the end, he decided to go off on his own so that he could find peace. It’s unclear what will happen to him next, but it seems like he’s finally able to be happy.

The ending of The Vampire Diaries means different things for different characters. For Elena Gilbert, it means she can finally live her life without being pulled into the world of vampires and supernatural beings. For Stefan Salvatore, it means he can finally be at peace.

Stefan and Damon’s fates

[Spoilers ahead for the series finale of The Vampire Diaries.]

After eight seasons, The Vampire Diaries came to an end on Friday night with a two-hour finale. The episode picked up right where the previous week’s left off, with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) dying in a explosion caused by Sybil (Natalie Dormer). While Bonnie (Kat Graham) was able to use her magic to send Damon and Enzo’s souls to hell — where they presumably reunite with Katherine (Nina Dobrev), whose body Sybil has been occupying — Stefan (Paul Wesley) was not so lucky. Stefan died as a result of his injuries from the explosion, and his soul went to heaven.

With Stefan and Damon both dead, that left Caroline (Candice King) as the only remaining original character on the show. She was able to find some solace in the fact that she would be able to see her husband and children again someday, but her happy ending was not enough to make up for the loss of Damon and Stefan.

Caroline and Alaric’s new family

Alaric and Caroline have a new family in the ending of Vampire Diaries. They have two young daughters, Josie and Lizzie. Alaric is also teaching at the local college. Caroline is running her own successful business. They are both happy and content with their lives.

Bonnie’s new life

In the final episode of Vampire Diaries, Bonnie (Kat Graham) is brought back to life by magic. But it’s not the same Bonnie that died. This new Bonnie is different — she’s not a vampire, she doesn’t have any supernatural powers, and she doesn’t remember her past life.

So what does this new life mean for Bonnie? It’s a fresh start, free from the burden of being a vampire. She can live a normal human life, without having to worry about being killed or turning into a monster.

It’s also a chance for her to explore her own humanity. In the past, Bonnie was always defined by her supernatural powers. But now that she’s human, she gets to discover who she is without those powers.

Ultimately, the ending of Vampire Diaries is about hope. Hope for Bonnie, hope for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), and hope for the future of the franchise. The series may be over, but there are still many stories to be told in this world.

Katherine’s return

Katherine’s return in the final season of The Vampire Diaries has been teased since the very beginning. And while it was never fully explained why she was back or what she was up to, her actions throughout the final season made it clear that she was up to something. In the end, Katherine’s return served a larger purpose than just to create chaos and havoc. It was revealed that she was actually working with Damon and Stefan in order to help them defeat Cade.

The Originals’ spin-off

The Originals, a show about the original family of vampires, was a Vampire Diaries spin-off. It was created by Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson. The series premiered on The CW on October 3, 2013, and concluded on March 10, 2017, having aired for 66 episodes over five seasons.

The series finale of The Originals left plenty of questions unanswered. What does the ending mean?

The final scenes of The Originals were bittersweet. On the one hand, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) finally got the happy ending he always wanted with Caroline (Candice King). They got married and had children together. But on the other hand, Klaus sacrificed himself to save his daughter, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell).

It was a touching end for a character who always put his family first. In the end, Klaus died so that Hope could have a chance at a normal life.

As for the rest of the Mikaelson family, they all ended up in different places. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) went back to New Orleans with Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), while Rebekah (Claire Holt) left town with Freya (Riley Voelkel). Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) also left town, but it’s uncertain where he went.

With all of the Mikaelson siblings gone, that leaves only Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) as the sole vampire in New Orleans. It will be interesting to see how Marcel fares without the Mikaelsons in season 6 of The Originals.

The Salvatore brothers’ final goodbye

At the end of the series, after defeating their enemies and finally finding peace, the Salvatore brothers say their final goodbye. Stefan gives Damon his blessings to move on and live his life with Elena, while he himself enters the afterlife. This bittersweet ending leaves fans wondering what could have been had the brothers had more time together.

Elena’s return

In the final episode of The Vampire Diaries, Elena (Nina Dobrev) finally returns to Mystic Falls after spending years away. She’s not the only one who’s come back, though; her friends Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are also back, and they’re not the only vampires in town. As the three of them stake their claim on the town, they must also deal with the fact that there are others who want to take it from them.

Elena’s return signals a new era for Mystic Falls, one in which vampires and humans must learn to coexist. It’s a big change from the way things used to be, but it’s one that Elena is more than ready for. She’s spent her time away from Mystic Falls learning about herself and what she wants out of life, and now she’s ready to put that knowledge to use. She knows that Stefan and Damon will always be there for her, but she also knows that she has to allow herself to be open to new experiences. After all, her time away has taught her that life is full of surprises.
