It was only a few days back that Nina Dobrev announced her return on "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8, sending a wave of excitement among her fans. Recent news suggests Elena and Damon's marriage.

Kevin Williamson, the screenwriter and producer of "The Vampire Diaries" has shared a photo on Instagram that shows Nina Dobrev dressed in a white lace dress. The snap has led to speculations that it is related to Elena's marriage to Damon on the finale of the series. Notably, the finale of the series has started filming and the team has been sharing lots of photos on social media.

As for Nina Dobrev's comeback, it is confirmed, reports E! News. A source close to the actress said that she is excited, nervous and expects the unknown for her time filming the finale. She is comparing it to a high school reunion where one sees people whom they have not seen in a while, people with whom they are still in touch as well as people whom they do not want to see. But, she is getting through it because she is professional and wants to give the fans one last hoorah.

In the meantime, it has been revealed that Ian Somerhalder aka Damon never felt the absence of Elena, claims TVLine. In an interview, the actor said that Elena never really left and was always ever-present. He admitted that she plays a great deal into Damon's morality and his understanding of who he is, especially in the last episodes.

He is still trying to make decisions she would approve of because she is still the light in his life. However, Somerhalder did not have anything to say about Elena's return. The actor said that he is not really sure how much she is going to physically play into things but he did acknowledge that the team was just finishing writing the finale now.

The "Vampire Diaries" finale titled "I Was feeling Epic" airs March 10, on The CW.
