9 ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Storylines that Still Need to Be Wrapped Up


In the most bittersweet news: The Vampire Diaries Season 8 only has three more episodes until we say goodbye to Mystic Falls forever.

To find resolution, there’s a whole lot that needs to be wrapped up in those three episodes, especially these nine storylines. Let’s see what questions still need answers.

1. How can they kill Cade?

When Kai Parker escaped from hell, he convinced Damon and Alaric that he knew how to kill the devil. However, his lips are still sewn tight on that one.

Damon thinks that he found a relic that will kill Cade, but we’re not convinced. Does it have something to do with the Maxwell family? Bonnie and the Bennett witches? Or, in sad news, is it not possible at all?

2. How will Elena wake up?

All signs pointed to Kai doing a solid and waking up Elena Gilbert, breaking her soul bond to Bonnie, but now that he’s gone old-school trickster Kai and disappeared with her casket, who knows what will happen.

We know Elena will return for the series finale, so what are the steps to get us there and how will she and everyone else deal with it?

3. Where TF is Enzo?

We already know Bonnie is kickbutt powerful, but even without her magic, she was able to create another “world” or “dimension” where her dead boyfriend Enzo is hiding from Cade.

Where is it? Can she reach it? Can Enzo come back? #Benzoforever.

4. What the heck is Jeremy up to?

Last we saw Elena’s younger brother, he was popping into Mystic Falls to say goodbye to his sleeping sister. Jeremy has been MIA since the three-year time jump.

Is he still fighting vampires? Did anyone tell him Tyler died? That his father figure Alaric has children? That his former love Bonnie took up with a vampire?

We know we’ll see Jeremy again this season, and we’re dying to know.

5. Will Steroline get their June wedding?

These two have been up and down all season. The once solid couple has dealt with a pact with the devil, Stefan going Ripper, Stefan killing Caroline’s Miss Mystic Falls contestants, Stefan turning human, and more. (Boy, Stefan has had a tumultuous season.)

Will Steroline be endgame or is it over again for the couple?

6. What will happen to Josie and Lizzie Saltzman?

The youngest Gemini twins are already coming into their powers, as Caroline and Alaric learned last week.

That’s terrifying. Especially because it could mean they are destined to fight against each other to the death, and we know how that worked out for their mom Jo and uncle Kai.

Will they learn who they are? Will be be powerful? Will they meet Kai? What is their future?

7. Will Bonnie get her powers back?

We know that Bonnie awakened some other magic when she suffered Enzo’s death, but will her true heritage Bennett witch powers come back?

We haven’t seen her in full force for seasons, and we’re all cheering for a full-throttle Bonnie Bennett comeback.

8. What does Matt’s future look like?

Wow, regular old human Matt Donovan has had a life of suffering. Fans are hoping for some redemption and a happy ending for the nicest person in Mystic Falls, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Considering his terrible mother Kelly Donovan is heading back to town, it doesn’t look like that happy ending will happen right away.

9. What’s the deal with Damon’s crow and fog?

This mystery has been plaguing dedicated viewers since the pilot, and we’re hoping to finally get some resolution.

In the first episode, Damon insinuated that he could control, essentially, birds and the weather. We saw crows creeping around Elena the whole episode and this hovering ominous fog.


Which lead to this exchange:

“Crow’s a bit much, don’t you think?” Stefan said.

“Wait 'til you see what I can do with the fog,” Damon replied.

None of these powers were ever mentioned again. What’s the deal?

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
