Sorry, Vampire Diaries fans, things are not looking good for Elena.

Why The Vampire Diaries finale won't be as sad as you expect

In this exclusive first look at the Season 6 finale, a very somber looking gang — which includes Stefan (Paul Wesley), Caroline (Candice Accola), Bonnie (Kat Graham), Tyler (Michael Trevino), Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Matt (Zach Roerig) — are gathered for what appears to be some bad news from Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Could this mean that Elena (Nina Dobrev), who just took the cure and became human again, is really dead? After all, group scenes in the Salvatore living room don't have the best track record. But on the bright side, Stefan and Caroline look awfully close, right?

What do you think is happening in this scene?

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
