The Vampire Diaries: Nina Dobrev May Be Gone, but #DelenaIsForever and the Tears Are Flowing on Twitter

Originally posted 05/14/2015 10:50PM

The fretful anticipation surrounding The Vampire Diaries' finale has been building since stars Nina Dobrev and Michael Trevino announced in early April that they would leave the show after season 6.

With a fanbase as committed as TVD's, it was inevitable viewers would be equal parts up-in-arms and dissolved-in-puddles regardless of how the characters made their exits. Unfortunately for Trevino's fans, his werewolf hybrid character Tyler Lockwood ended on more of a whimper than a growl on Thursday. The fanfare around the departure of Dobrev's on-screen persona Elena Gilbert, however, certainly merited the uproar heard around the Twitterverse during and after the East Coast airing.

Why Michael Trevino Was Ready to Leave The Vampire Diaries: 'I'm Surprised I Didn't Run Out of Storyline Earlier'

Originally posted 05/14/2015 09:00PM

During his six-year run as Tyler Lockwood on The Vampire Diaries, Michael Trevino truly was the focus of the series' most interesting storylines.

However, in later seasons, Tyler had less and less to do as a consequence of the fact that being a werewolf – and, later, an out-of-control vampire/werewolf hybrid under the control of a maniacal, 1,000-year-old vampire – didn't exactly endear him to the vampires on whom the show is primarily based.

So Trevino realizes that, with all characters, there is a time to move on. In a chat with PEOPLE, he says – earnestly, we might add – that he's "surprised" that Tyler didn't run out of things to do earlier, but that he's "grateful" he lasted as long as he did.

The actor, 30, also reveals his favorite part about playing Tyler and answers the dangerous, million-dollar question: Who's best for Caroline?

For those already mourning the loss of Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries, all is not yet lost – the departure of Elena just might breathe new (un)life into the series.

"The last two scenes of the finale truly depict where the show is going," Ian Somerhalder told PEOPLE on the red carpet at the CW Upfronts on Thursday.

The actor promised that the series will return to the "volatile, sexy" days of yore – "stuff that we all fell in love with. Season 1 and 2 of the show were so dark. It was awesome."

Nina Dobrev on Life After The Vampire Diaries: 'I Want to Live Like a Twentysomething!'

Originally posted 05/14/2015 12:00PM

Now that Nina Dobrev is no longer confined to the rigorous schedule of a TV star, the actress tells PEOPLE that she's enjoying her newfound free time.

As Dobrev, 26, documents her cross-country road trip/scavenger hunt on Instagram, she says that she's using the interlude following her run as Elena on The Vampire Diaries to "do the opposite of what I'd been doing for the last six years. I had a very scheduled, regimented life, and I've just been taking the whole month to not plan anything and see where life takes me and chill for a second before getting back into it and getting super-focused again."

Adds Dobrev, "I want to live like a twentysomething!"
