And here is the cruel truth that confirms our worst nightmare,Nina's accompanying note explaining her exit :
Dearest TVD Family,
I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure,and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever.
There's more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you'll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale (I have given an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for you to see!), but until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert's life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her -- and to my work family -- as I move on to the next chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of you (this weekend's pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for 'that Twilight TV show.' ;-) I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what's coming, you don't.
So by now you have got red puffy eyes and are unable to speak because of that cruel lump in your throat, but the only comforting thing I can say is that she's gonna be with us for the rest of this season at least.
But putting our "fan theory hats" on, let's read the note once again.Nina says she is moving on to the next chapter of her life. But could it be that this chapter is starting ..or to put it in other words...the reason she is finally quitting the show(remember,the sixth season filming is almost over) because of this ? :
Well, that was another sad news that Delena fans had to suffer.But the fact that despite such a devastating event-seeing your boyfriend of years getting engaged with someone else in just six months after you have broken up-that shit can wreck any normal human being fro the inside.But Nina was as brave as always and continued to act with Ian as professionally as possible.She is an awesome actress,human being and terribly professional.So yeah, we will miss her.Badly!
Note: Its the same question and dread that every TVD fan shares, that how is VD gonna run without one of its main casts?But be happy, Julie Plec and CW both confirmed that the show's seventh season will go on and it will now be a challenging feat for the show's writers to design a storyline without our dear Elena..but it will continue.
Having said all that,its a terrible loss to The Vampire Diaries ,a loss that has left us ,its fans in an ever growing pool of tears...All that you and I can do now is sit back and binge watch all the episodes from the pilot and reminisce those days when our sweet and sexy Nina Dobrev wowed us all and stole our hearts with her performance as Elena Gilbert ,the most gorgeous vampire in history!!!
Feel free to express your grief in the comments section and spread awareness about this tragedy by sharing this post among all other TVD fans on Moviepilot!!!
