MTV spoke with the cast of the Vampire Diaries at Comic Con and of course Nina Dobrev/Elena came up in the discussion!

Paul Wesley and co. explain why she could come back “like Jesus.”

Last spring, Nina Dobrev broke the hearts of millions when she revealed that the sixth season of “The Vampire Diaries” would be her last. But given how they ended things at the end of that season — with Dobrev’s character Elena sleeping in a coffin, her fate tied to Kat Graham’s character Bonnie’s — doesn’t that, in “TVD” land, essentially mean that she could come back any time she damn well pleases?

MTV News asked Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Michael Malarkey, Candice Accola and Graham this very question when they stopped by our San Diego Comic-Con studio on Saturday (July 11), and lucky for us, the answer was as good as we could have hoped for.

“She’s still there, dude,” Somerhalder joked. “She’s in a casket; she’s having a nap.”
“[Characters] die and come back,” Wesley added. “It’s like Jesus!”

Accola, more seriously, said “I think that’s what’s fun about this series. You never know when characters are going to leave, you never know when they’re going to come back. That’s been a constant for six seasons, now. So the fact that, for such a big departure, that it is left open-ended, is really true to the show.”

And what’s more, even while she’s sleeping, Malarkey concluded that “because the way it’s been done, she’s very much a presence in season seven.”

BOOM. Is anyone else way more excited for October 8, now?
