Last night's episode of The Vampire Diaries, "The Sun Also Rises," set the stage for an epic season finale next Thursday. More than one life hangs in the balance May 12.

While Mystic Falls presents a screening of Gone with The Wind in the town square, Damon’s memories of Katherine in 1864 mix with the reality of Elena in the present.

Will Damon survive, and in what form? Will he earn Elena's forgiveness? Will the body count continue to rise after a carnage-filled episode yesterday evening?

Promos to come shortly. Click to enlarge photos from "As I Lay Dying" ...

From the way I look at these pictures, they are epic and shocking mixed together. I love all of the Stelena moments because I'm a huge Stelena super fan. The true events of the episode are extremely shocking. Now that Damon is dying, how will Mystic Falls be like without him? There is only one way to find out and that's to keep watching and learn the spoilers. Now matter how shocking the events go, I will still love this show soooo much as my favorite. I love the Vampire Diaries in any fantastic way there is. =) =D

Please...all you Damon haters. Dont hate him coz you aint him!!! Its plain and simple really...The dude is EPIC!!! and his character carries the show. Sure they could focus on some of the other characters as well (and they do) but Damon outshines the rest with no effort at all. and you can bet your life the show would die a silent death if he wasn't around. As for the man behind the character....DAMN homey!!!! you rock! Ian Somerhalder you sure know what your doing! and you are part of an awesome team! I take my hat off to the writers/producers of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES! You've brought back television for me!!!!

loveee damon . he's the reason i'm addicted 2 this show . i'm sure he'll not be dead . can't wait 4 da 3rd season . :DDD

hmm.. the delena story should take a step like what happened at the end of season 1 with damon kissing katherine thinking it was elena. but a happy ending would probably ruin the whole show for me as much as i would like to see delena together. :p

i reali think that season 2 is way better then season 1 so im gonna have to disagree with u lani, damon IS legit. i think that damon wont die cuz remember that Rose didnt die from the wolf bite, she got staked. and i must say when my friends told me about vampire diaries i thought it would me rubish til i watched it. the writer is a true legand!!!

Avatar

Lani sounds like a damon hater. the show is not all about him all characters are given their chance. season 2 is awesome but it would only take a true fan to notice. and of course season 1 had more details about the characters they were now being introduced! so STFU if you don't know what you're talking about. >_<

Clearly you have been watching a different show from every one else. If you and your "friends" won't miss the show thru summer, so what? Doubt the show will miss you!!!!!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
