'The Vampire Diaries': Where will Elena, Damon, Stefan, Jeremy, Caroline, etc. be after another 100 episodes?

the-vampire-diaries-100-episodes-200-episodes-speculation.jpg

After five years and five crazy seasons, "The Vampire Diaries" aired its 100th episode last week. 

The hour was filled with game-changing twists (Katherine possessed Elena! Caroline had hot sex in the woods with Klaus! Tyler came back to Mystic Falls at the worst possible time for Caroline!) but our favorite parts of the episode were the callbacks to earlier game-changing moments in the series, like when Aunt Jenna appeared to remind Katherine of the time she compelled her to walk into a knife, or Uncle John reminded her that she cut off his fingers, or seeing Vicki and Alaric again.

Those nostalgic moments reminded us of how much has happened and how much our characters have changed in the past 100 episodes. Just think back to the pilot: Elena was sitting in a graveyard, writing in her diary, mourning her parents, without any knowledge that she was surrounded by supernatural creatures. Bonnie was more concerned with fashion trends than being a supernatural anchor to The Other Side. Vicki was still alive, and hooking up with Jeremy who was a stoner and slacker -- not a powerful vampire hunter. Alaric hadn't even moved to Mystic Falls to teach yet. 

My how far we've come. And since our "TVD" craving can never be sated, we're already thinking about the next 100 episodes. Where will Elena, Damon, Stefan, Jeremy, Caroline, and the rest of our favorite characters be when "The Vampire Diaries" 200th episode airs in 2019? 

Will they be alive? A different kind of supernatural creature? Who will be dating who? Who will be doing who? How many times will they have crossed over onto spinoff "The Originals" (because we have a feeling the New Orleans series will also be around for a long time)? Let's speculate! 

Elena (Nina Dobrev)

Supernatural status: Human after a big witch spell recreated the cure

Died and come back to life: 3 times, can now see/speak to ghosts

Hooked up with: Stefan again, then back to Damon, then back to Matt

Dating: Matt, now that they're both human

Crossover episodes: 0 (let's be honest, Elena never really gelled with the Originals except for Elijah)

Damon (Ian Somerhalder)

Supernatural status: Still a vampire

Died and come back to life: 2 times (Bonnie brought him back the second time), can now see/speak to ghosts

Hooked up with: Elena again, then Bonnie after she brought him back

Dating: No one

Crossover episodes: 0 (Damon hates all things Original, after all)

Stefan (Paul Wesley)

Supernatural status: Still a vampire, but also obsessed with hunting all other vampires (except his family/friends) after a group of them murdered his human girlfriend

Died and come back to life: 0 times (he's been training well)

Hooked up with: Elena again, then Caroline, then the next Petrova doppelgänger (who was human)

Dating: Dated Caroline briefly before falling madly in love with the next Petrova doppelgänger. Then she was killed and he vowed not to date anyone else

Crossover episodes: 5 episode arc on "The Originals" after his love died: He went to a dark place and resumed his friendship with Klaus before taking on his new life as a prejudiced vampire hunter -- just like his father

Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen)

Supernatural status: Vampire

Died and come back to life: 8 times, brought back by Bonnie each time until she couldn't stand it anymore and they broke up, and he got turned into a vampire the last time by a desperate Elena before she became a human

Hooked up with: Bonnie

Dating: No one after Bonnie dumped him 

Crossover episodes: 0

Caroline (Candice Accola)

Supernatural status: Still a vampire

Died and come back to life: 0 times, because she's awesome and can't be killed

Hooked up with: Stefan, then Klaus, then Katherine (twist!)

Dating: Dated Klaus on "The Originals" but now is single and loving it after a fling with Katherine (Caroline doesn't need a significant other to be awesome, let's get real, she's at her best when she's on her own)

Crossover episodes: 9 episode arc on "The Originals" to give a relationship with Klaus a try after she graduated from college, but realized no matter how passionate her attraction to him was, she couldn't keep overlooking his villainous tendencies 

Bonnie (Kat Graham)

Supernatural status: A witch (again) after getting help from other witches to restore her power and transfer her Other Side anchor status to an actual object so no one has to endure that pain ever again

Died and come back to life: 0 times

Hooked up with: Jeremy, then Damon

Dating: No one, because she got fed up with constantly bringing her significant others back from death

Crossover episodes: 0 (she hates the Originals, duh)

Tyler (Michael Trevino)

Supernatural status: Still a hybrid

Died and come back to life: 0 times

Hooked up with: No one after Caroline's betrayal of hooking up/dating Klaus

Dating: No one, that sting doesn't fade

Crossover episodes: 1 more episode on "The Originals" to confront Klaus for hooking up with Caroline, and armed with a white oak stake, he kills Rebekah to get revenge on both her (for putting him in the Garden) and Klaus

Matt (Zach Roerig)

Supernatural status: Human, surprisingly

Died and come back to life: 0 times (Matt Donovan FTW!)

Hooked up with: Elena

Dating: Elena now that they're both human

Crossover episodes: 1 to attend Rebekah's funeral on "The Originals" 

Katherine (Dobrev)

Supernatural status: Caroline turns Katherine into a vampire again, after getting her own body back and having witches cure her aging problem

Died and come back to life: 1 time during the body switch spell

Hooked up with: Elijah again (on "TVD," not an "Originals" crossover) then Caroline after she helps turn Katherine back into a powerful vampire  

Dating: No one (Katherine, like Caroline, is best when she's on her own ... that's how she survives)

Crossover episodes: 0 (you really think she'd voluntarily put herself in the line of fire with Klaus, especially after hooking up with the love of his life? Yeah, no)

Alaric (Matt Davis)

Supernatural status: Still a ghost (though Damon can now see/speak to him, thus the bromance lives on!)

Died and come back to life: 0 times (he's still dead)

Klaus (Joseph Morgan)
