Is Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) starring in Waterworld II? Nope, the certified scuba diver is just filming a scene for the Season 3 finale for Vampire Diaries. In this behind-the-scenes photo for Episode 22, “The Departed,” we get a sneak peek at what’s coming up for Elena.

So why did the star need to get into her wetsuit? The episode will flash back to the night when her parents died in a car crash on Wickery Bridge. Grayson and Miranda Gilbert will be played by James MacDonald and Erin Beute, and The CW posted a photo of the couple with their adoptive daughter. Poor Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) — always getting the shaft. We assume he’s off doing the drugs and drawing dragons.

Stefan was also in Mystic Falls on the fateful night when Elena nearly died, and Paul Wesley also needed to suit up for the watery scene. Where’s that picture, CW?
