The cure to vampirism has resurfaced on The Vampire Diaries, but will Elena take it as part of her exit from the series? All signs point to yes.

When the show returns Thursday (8/7c, The CW), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will keep secret the fact that Bonnie (Kat Graham) brought him that little vial. But when he and Elena discuss their future, Damon realizes it's time to admit that those hypothetical plans they made could now become a reality. Naturally, Elena balks at the opportunity to become human again, until Damon proposes (in a swoon-worthy scene) an idea — one that mirrors Elena's in Season 4 — that she'll find hard to refuse.
