The Vampire Diaries is currently airing its eighth and final season on The CW, and one of the stars of the series is now talking about ending the popular vampire drama. He even revealed his own ideas for how the series should end, and his ideas might surprise you.
In an interview with Variety, Somerhalder said the following about ending the series after eight seasons:
“You want things to end on a good note. We really had an amazing run. It’s just time. All good things must come to an end. The real beauty of it is that it doesn’t actually come to an end. There’s iTunes and Google play and Amazon and Netflix and Hulu. We have these incredible outlets where media just lives on. New viewership comes into the fold. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.”
As for the end of the series, he has no idea what Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson has planned, but he does have his own ideas. He said the following:
“Paul [Wesley] and I talk about this all the time. Damon’s 174 years old and in love with an 18-year-old. It’s the most unbelievable example of robbing the cradle, first of all. Secondly, these boys, they came into this town, they wreaked havoc, they ruined lives. Honestly, I think the best thing for Mystic Falls would be for these guys and all of these vampires and witches to just go away. Let Elena wake up and have these boys gone and never know any of this happened. A phenomenal, go humanity thing would be where these creatures don’t win. We would love to see the two boys go down to the Caribbean somewhere and sit on a beach drinking some 60-year-old Caribbean rum, and as the sun comes up, just toast each other, give each other a hug, and take off their rings and throw them into the sea and let them just poof — turn into ash. I’ve created so much death and so much violence on this show that I think it would be such an amazing win for humanity if Damon and Stefan just went bye-bye. Let’s hope it happens.”
As for Nina Dobrev, he has no idea if she will return for the finale. Are you sad to see the end of The Vampire Diaries? Tell us what you think.
