We’re about 11 weeks out from the return of The Vampire Diaries (Oct. 8, The CW), but save for the dilapidated Mystic Falls we saw at the tail end of May’s finale, it’s hard to imagine what Season 7 will actually look like.
Sure, we got a few juicy teases at Comic-Con — including Stefan and Caroline’s amped-up game of cat and mouse, as well as a potential new love interest for Bonnie — but there’s still so much uncertainty about the new, post-Elena world we’re about to enter.
To that end, Team TVLine scribbled down a few of our own wishes for the coming season. And while we’re keeping our expectations reasonable — no one’s asking for Elena to wake up anytime soon, for example — we’re also hoping for the best.
