The news of Nina Dobrev leaving the show spread in minutes. After posting lots of pictures on her Instagram account with what looked like a lake party, the rumour started. It seems that someone from that party also posted a picture and used the tag #wewillmissyounina and that was enough for the fans to go crazy.

Nina proved her professionalism by adding a goodbye letter to Elena fans in which she described the incredible journey in TVD and the reasons why she leaves:

"Dearest TVD Family, I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries.

I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. 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."

Also, actress and producer Julie Plec declared that Elena was a six season story since the beginning, which leaves the fans' heart in pain. Hearing that their favourite character in the show was leaving, no matter if they were in team Delena or Stelena, broke them apart.

And now, the big question. No, that doesn't mean Damon will propose to Elena but who knows? Everyone wonders: how will Elena leave the show? Will she die? Maybe the witchy vampires which Mommy Salvatore considers them family will tore apart Elena's heart.

Or Damon will realize he loves Elena so much so he will tell her about the cure, make her take it and compel her to forgive everything . That will let her live a normal human life and have the baby she always wanted. Haven't you heard it? There's a rumour that Elena will get pregnant in season 6!

Every fan knows that now the cure is in Damon's hands and it seems that Elena taking the cure to vampirism is the most convenient ending.

But Damon will compel her to take it or just ask her? Will Elena say yes and just leave the Salvatore Brothers? If she leaves what will Damon do? So many questions but the show ends in May, so we'll find out.

Elena Gilbert is the heart of the show. The highschool girl torn between the sweet and kind brother and the sexy and bad one.

So it is no surprise that many fans consider that the show will end after season 7. There are some who can't even imagine the show without Nina.

Nina Dobrev is not the only one who leaves the show. Steven McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert and Elena brother) already left and Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood) also announced he will leave the show. The actor posted a video made with Nina on the social networks and it's so funny because they have helium voices.

So how can the show go on without the main character? What will happen next? We can just hope that Julie Plec will come with other brilliant ideas to keep the fans interested.

Episode 18 just arrived and there are 4 more to come; the actors assure us that those episodes will be full of surprises. Stay tuned and don't forget to tell us what do you think will happen next.
