When The Vampire Diaries returns from hiatus and starts it’s end of season run, fans can expect to see some revealing flashbacks. New information surrounding the time in Elena’s life when her adoptive parents, Grayson and Miranda Gilbert, will surface and impact the way we view Mystic Falls in present day.
“The great rule of storytelling is… don’t flash back if there’s nothing that’s going to change your life moving forward, and we’ll have to see what we can uncover about that past that can would impact us today,” executive producer Julie Plec spoiled. “Elena’s parents are dead, and it was a human accident, and a human tragedy. The night that Stefan pulled her out of the water and saved her life was the beginning of their love story, so I would certainly like to return to that night at some point and know more about it.”
Unfortunately, Jeremy fans will only get to see his 14 year old self in a flashback toward the end of the season.
Though Damon and Elena aren’t on the best of terms right now, things are going to grow more intense between them — if that’s at all possible! Though revisiting the car crash may stir up some feelings for Stefan and Elena, there are some passionate, powerful scenes coming up for her and Damon, too. Let’s just say that while he may have given up on pursuing her for the greater good, she’s not quite ready to let him go yet.
