Fans finally get their wish to see Nina Dobrev before the series ends. No doubt, The Vampire Diaries season 8 teaser–even if it was only ten seconds long–is enough to whet their appetite for the finale episode titled I Was Feeling Epic.

Elena is Back in The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Teaser
“I’m thrilled to bring this show to an end the way we always intended – with Nina back to help us say goodbye,” Julie Plec said in a statement. Indeed, The Vampire Diaries season 8 teaser provided fans a bonus. The season 8 promo gives viewers their first look and listen of Nina Dobrev as Elena once again.

Nina Dobrev Gets to Say Goodbye Twice
E! Online counts Nina Dobrev’s return to The Vampire Diaries as another emotional tour for audiences. Originally, the actress left the series in 2015 at the end of season 6. Even then, emotions were high with her exit. Hence, it is likely this time around would be more touching.
The actress posted a lengthy message on Instagram after she wrapped up filming for the series finale. Dobrev admitted her return to the show brought on various feelings in her from joy to love and nostalgia.
Nonetheless, she felt it was a beautiful ending. Moreover, she was happy about to reunite with her family and friends from the hit TV series. Indeed, the recent social media posts of husband and wife Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed together with Nina Dobrev enjoying dinner showed good times between them.
Yet, perhaps the most encouraging part of her message was her assurance to fans they would be happy with the ending. Fans should prepare themselves for an emotional ride.
Dearest TVD family, It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying goodbye. And yet two years have passed and here we are again. This is my true final goodbye, as today I shot my last scene of the Vampire Diaries forever. Coming back for the series finale has been a whirlwind of emotion, nostalgia, love, tears of joy and bittersweet endings. It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn't have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends. I feel the fans family will also be happy with the show's conclusion when they tune in to watch the last episode air in a few short weeks. From the bottom of my heart, I send you my biggest thanks for the countless years of implicit dedication, passion, support, and undying love from all the fans that have stuck with us on this truly amazing and beautiful journey.
