The Vampire Diaries Season Finale Scoop: Who are The Departed?

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale will be titled "The Departed." This much we know, thanks to an Ian Somerhalder Tweet.

But now E! News has shed a little more light on the May 10 installment, reporting in its latest Spoiler Chat that the title refers to all those who Elena has lost over the years, starting with her parents and continuing through Aunt Jenna and, possibly, Alaric.

Expect to witness a flashback to her family's car accident on the finale.

Elena's guilt, of course, has been building up throughout season three, as we saw her beg for Bonnie's forgiveness on last Thursday's "Break on Through." Will she finally reach a boiling point on the finale? And what will that entail if so?

Ponder the possibilities and visit E! for more spoilers on shows such as Grimm and 90210.

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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
