The finale is called “I Was Feeling Epic,” after Lexi’s iconic line in season 1. Show creators Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson are more than glad to have Dobrev back:

“I’m thrilled to bring this show to an end the way we always intended — with Nina back to help us say goodbye,” Plec said in a statement. Williamson agreed. “I’m so excited to have Nina back to ensure our farewell episode is truly epic!” he exclaimed.

Dobrev parted ways with the show after 6 seasons in 2015, stating:

“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.”

The season 6 finale saw Elena and Damon enjoying one last dance together on the street where they first met, before Elena entered a comatose state for several decades. The suspense of whether or not Damon will find a way to revive her without killing her best friend, Bonnie, in the process, is utterly unbearable.

We will have to wait until March 10th to find out!
