'The Vampire Diaries' endgame!

Believe it or not, I am working on my TVD issues/missed opportunities post. (I think I may get it done this weekend... or at least get a really good jump into it. Not surprisingly, it's going to be massive.) Anyhoo, while looking for some comments here and there through older posts to get the framework for the post I came across this post from 2012: 'THE VAMPIRE DIARIES' ENDGAME?

- What is *your* dream endgame for The Vampire Diaries? Not based on what you think will happen, on producer/actor/fan commentary, and perhaps or perhaps not based on what is happening right now (or the last few seasons) but what you would like to see happen as the series winds down. Which couples do you want to see together? Where do you want to see the characters? Who do you want to survive to the end? As a human? As a vampire? Who do you want to die (if anyone)?

- What do you think *will be* the endgame for the series? Based on what has happened in canon on the show, what hints/clues the producers/actors have given out? Which couple(s), character(s) will be standing as a human or vampire at the end?
I included my answers and I was actually a little shocked at my "will be" endgame answer because of what I wrote about Stefan. Considering where we were in the show at that point* and what wound up happening and not knowing what would happen (as Jeremy, Tyler leaving and the Originals spin-off hadn't even been hinted at yet, not to mention that Enzo hadn't been introduced), I did pretty darn good.

* I posted this before season 03, episode 13, "Bringing Out The Dead" and I was already psycho spoiler free at that point.

As to what I think what will be endgame? I do genuinely think that Damon/Elena will be endgame, Stefan may or may not be with Caroline (or Katherine or Rebekah), or he may decide to go wander the world finding himself. Or he [Stefan] may wind up sacrificing himself for good for Damon, I could see that and see him be at peace with it in a way. Whichever happens, he and Damon will be at peace with one another, having found their middle ground and love. That I'm as sure of as I am of Damon/Elena endgame, if not more.

If Tyler lasts this season and they are still playing with the Tyler/Caroline romance angle, then I think they'll be endgame (not particularly happy about that prospect). The Originals will either be dead, out of commission or have left Mystic Falls. I also think that the show has managed to keep a tight handle on the main aspects of the mythology and that they have a planned ending that will, in the end, reunite the survivors as this tribal family (likely vampiric) that travel together.
Yeah, I think I did pretty good. Heck, I even used the word "peace" ya'll!
