The Plot of Vampire Diaries
Both parents dead with no family to rely on, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) falls in love with Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), a vampire who is 162 years old. However, their relationship takes a turn for the worse when Stefan’s older brother Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) returns to town with plans to bring back Katherine Pierce (also played by Dobrev), a doppelgänger of Elena and his past lover.
Although Damon resents his brother at first for turning him into a vampire, he eventually makes peace with Stefan and falls in love with Elena. This creates a complicated love triangle between the three of them. As the series progresses, it becomes clear that both brothers work to protect Elena from various villains and threats to their town, including Katherine. Through flashbacks, the audience gains a better understanding of not only the brothers’ history but also of the town’s mythology.
The Ending of Vampire Diaries Season 8
Season 8 was shorter than usual, with only 16 episodes instead of the 20 or more in previous seasons. It started off violent and ended with closures for all major characters. Stefan dies as a sacrifice to save his brother but not before making sure Damon becomes human too. Elena goes on to marry him, and Katherine is sent to hell where she can’t cause harm to anyone ever again.
Elena breaks free from her sleeping curse with Bonnie’s help. She goes on to graduate as a medical doctor and visits Stefan’s tomb before she too dies and joins them in the afterlife. In this other realm, Damon is finally reunited with his brother while Elena connects with her long-lost parents. They all spend time together at their family homes there.
