Death has loomed over Elena Gilbert () since The Vampire Diaries began, but nothing will compare with the pain she's about to go through now that her brother Jeremy (), has become a vampire victim.

The shocking death not only devastated us - the fans - but also the actors. And, according to Hollywood Life, any of you out there thinking that Diaries finds a way to make it all better, you are in for a nasty surprise. Things are about to get real dark for Dobrev's character. She reveals:

Losing Jeremy really, really, really changes Elena... Sometimes people recover from tragedy, and sometimes they don't — but it's a long journey for her... She goes off the deep end and spirals downwards into a black hole of death and sadness and misery.

Jeremy was her last connection to being a human. She had lost her parents, Aunt Jenna, and Alaric. Jeremy was the only person she had left in that world. The only positive thing to come out of all this mess is to hope that the death will bring everyone in Mystic Falls together. But what about Steven? Nina says her on-screen bro was able to see the silver lining when it came to his character's death:

I know Steven was very bummed, but also excited because he had a lot to do leading up to it... His character grew and became so strong. It's bittersweet but made for some amazing television.

I cannot WAIT to see what's ahead. What about you? My only concern is how they are going to cram all of this in the last remaining episodes. Yeah, I know this is and time means nothing to her, but it's looking like at the moment there are a lot of loose ends that are hanging. There's Silas and the cure business, there's Katherine to deal with, there's Elijah to arrive, Bonnie's mentoring by Aja, Atticus Shane...the list goes on! How will they fit it all in?

The Vampire Diaries returns next Thursday 8/7c on The CW. What did you think of this week's show? Are you excited to see a darker version of Elena? Share your pain with me and let me know below, fans!
