Warning: There may be a few spoilers you might not like beyond this point… but not the kind that will make you hate us.
Vampire Diaries is one of those shows that stays with you no matter how long it’s been since you last watched it. Whether it be a few months waiting for the next season, or a few hours in which you’ve been craving it for every second.
So now that we all know we’re not going to get any more TVD fixes after this eighth and final season, we are clinging to all hope it will bring us so much satisfaction that we will be set for life.
That said, there are a few pretty darn confirmed speculations about what we’re going to be seeing which have given us mixed feelings.
Here’s the quick low down on what to expect.
Stefan’s going back to his old ways…
We thought this meant that uh-oh Stefan’s a Ripper again, but no. Julie Plec revealed there will be a MAJOR flashback to when Stefan was the Ripper of Monterey, that will hit us with some serious secrets.
The old themes are back.
Remember how much you love the decade dances, Miss Mystic Falls and the Founder’s Day eps? Well, we’re going to get another dose of those goodies and they’ll be better than ever!
Elena is coming back!
Nina Dobrev has already said countless times she’s 100 percent into returning and that’s all the info we need! Despite possible scheduling conflicts, there’s no way she could miss this!
Damon’s memories of Elena will play a big part in the entire season and her return.
We probs won’t like Damon in the premiere…
The first episode is a major homage to the first ep of season one (it’s called ‘Hello, Brother’… duh!) and Damon’s malicious old self…
Some of our fave characters are going to be returning!
This is always a given and we aren’t privy to the ins and outs of how exactly we’re going to see our faves again, considering (SPOILER for those not up to date!!!!!!) the other side no longer exists, but the writers always find a way around that!
We’re super excited to grace our eyes with the glory of season 8 (which has already premiered in the US!!!) and we love the final poster that has just been released!
What do YOU think is going to happen this season? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
