If you love TVD as much as I do, I guarantee you're freaking out, but are also confused about this. We've all wondered if Elena is ever going to appear again, especially since this upcoming season is the last one of the series. Lucky for us, we've finally gotten an answer. Sort of.
The head at CW, Mark Pedowitz, said this about her possible return: "There are discussions going on with Nina, we'd love to have her back... These are discussions that go on, hopefully she'll be back, but should it not work out, Julie has planned a great series finale for the fans. I always like to have Nina. Who doesn't like to have Nina on the show? She was a great person to have. She was a great spokesperson for the CW and for The Vampire Diaries."
He continued to say, "She made a career decision that, for her, was probably the right decision but we'd love to have her back. But again, if it cannot work out, Julie will take care to have a really satisfactory series finale.
I am so desperately hoping that they can come to an agreement to have Nina back, it would be so so incredible. Fingers crossed!
