The new teaser clocks in at a mere 10 seconds but it packs a powerful punch all the same. In it, we get our first glimpse of Dobrev reprising her role as Elena Gilbert for the final time and the good news is, she’s wide awake! Even so, Elena seems to be a bit confused as to what she’s doing there in the first place.
There’s a short shot of Elena gazing at what looks to be the Mystic Falls High trophy case before she turns to look at a smiling Stefan (Paul Wesley) and asks one simple question.
“What happened? Why am I here right now?”
We’re with Elena on this one in the sense that we’re definitely curious to discover how she was able to come back in the first place. As fans of the series know all too well, when Elena was put under the curse, her life was tied to Bonnie’s meaning she’d be in indefinite sleep until Bonnie died.
Could Elena’s return mean that something terrible has happened to one of her oldest friends? Or have Stefan, Damon, and the rest of the gang figured out a way around that particular constituency of the curse?
We guess we’ll just have to wait until March to find out!
