After Nina Dobrev announced her return for the Vampire Diaries series finale, more familiar faces have hinted at potentially coming back for the show's final hour.
Things haven't been going well for Damon and Stefan lately.
For Stefan, though, such closure may not even be possible unless Damon and the other characters can find a way to pull him out of his violent ripper stage before it's too late.
In the official promo video [watch below], Damon and Stefan get ordered by Cade to do some tough assignments - and somebody else will have to pay for them.
According to TV Guide, Cade (Wole Parks) was able to give Damon (Ian Somerhalder) an ultimatum after he tried to quit.
"Our arrangement is very clear. Caroline (Candice King) desperately tries to connect with Stefan before Cade goes through with his plan". "Disobey me, and I send you there to stay". Damon tells Caroline, "The devil can't be killed". It seems like she is the only one who knows how to awaken the goodness inside them. She'll be busy protecting the bell that could destroy her whole hometown. The last time Bonnie regained her powers, the power to start fires was the first to manifest itself again, and there was no fire at the end of "You Made a Choice to Be Good". The synopsis for Season 8 episode 12 doesn't reveal anything about what the future holds for Bonnie, but it wouldn't be wrong to assume that she's done with the Salvatore brothers for good.
With there only being a handful of episodes left to go on "The Vampire Diaries" before the series finale comes on the air, we certainly do think that we're now at a time in which getting closure is important for so numerous characters.
