The EP, meanwhile, once again emphasized that "The Vampire Diaries," isn't really just about the popular girl from Mystic Falls but also about the struggles of the Salvatore brothers.

But even though Elena escapes her captor, the threat of Wes’ plan doesn’t seem to be gone as Phase 2 looms… Here, executive producer Caroline Dries sounds off on the split and whether there’s hope for “Delena.” Plus: Now that the couple is no more, will it push Elena toward Stefan?

As for the Augustine mythology, Elena learns her dad taught Wes everything he knows and that Grayson Gilbert was trying to heal a little girl named Megan.

Adding insult to injury, before a rapidly aging Katherine can perform a Traveler spell to let her live on in someone else’s body, she collapses on the floor.

In an interview, Plec told TVLine that their plan is to have Elena return to Mystic Falls when the series is finally close to its end.

Since "The Vampire Diaries" doesn't seem to show any signs of slowing down, the heroine won't be coming back anytime soon.

However, the showrunner said that should there be something catastrophic that would happen to the other characters in the story, more specifically to Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), then the writers would have to revive the former protagonist.

According to Plec, "There is still a chapter of Elena's story left to be told.""I'll take Dobrev for whatever she's willing to do to tell that story," she went on to tell the media outlet.

The CW's hit supernatural drama TV series "The Vampire Diaries" is yet to return to the small screens for the second half of Season 7.

A handful of new updates for the show, however, have been pouring down in the past week.
