Determined to protect his sister, Jeremy makes a decision that will change everything. In the harsh reality of the present situation, Elena longs for simpler times when her parents, Grayson and Miranda, and Aunt Jenna, were still alive and her biggest concern was her relationship with Matt.

Stefan and Damon leave Mystic Falls together on a mission, but soon split up when Elena needs one of them. Caroline and Tyler are forced to make a life-changing decision. Finally, Bonnie makes a secret deal that has heartbreaking consequences.

The official synopsis of the finale says that Stefan and Damon leave Mystic Falls together on a mission, but soon split up when Elena needs one of them. In the picture you see damon and rebekah somewhere in, I guess, mystic falls, they are afraid of someone, that 'someone' could be the reason why elena needs one of them, and that person is DAMON!! (as you can see in the picture) what do you think??? agree??


If Jeremy sacrifices himself for Elena's life i think i might scream!!!


I am getting tired of the Elena's love triangle. At this point I do not even care who she chooses. I just want her to make a choice and end this suffering.


I hope that Delena will be an endgame, just let Elena choose Stefan in Season 3 and she'll realize how wrong was she ;). She'll miss Damon's lips, trust me :)


This is the episode that Elena is suppose to make her decision. Somehow, I think she's gonna pick Stefan. Damon & Stefan are on the road together. Elena will call Damon, tell him her decision & he'll hand over the phone to Stefan. After speaking w/Stefan, he hangs up & they both acknowledge she wants Stefan back.They'll have a heart to heart talk, making their love bond of brothers stronger. Stefan will go back & Damon will continue on to the mission meeting up w/Rebecca. Damon will either turn off part of his humanity & some of Damon from Season 1 will be back. Or next season he will be the one staying away from Elena & MF, still never knowing true love. And all us Delena fans hearts will be broken into millions of pieces.


I ADORE Klaus. He has the best one-liners, and is super hot. More Klaus please!


I actually agree with BoredNow about Elena. I have always secretly called her 'Shark Eyes' because of her lack of emotion and expressions. I can't figure out if they are just writing Elena poorly, or if Nina is dropping the ball. Nina does a great job as Katherine, so maybe it is the writing. I just wish the writers would give Elena more range, and yes I agree with a lot of other people on here in that- please let Elena have some kind of meltdown! Give the girl more 'flaws'.


LMFAO BoredNow is bored with this show now


I agree with Bored Now a bit. I do think that the relationship between Caroline and Tyler needs to be explored a bit more and I hope to see more of them. I like the love triangle I just wish it wasn't as drawn out and as played out as it's been. I wonder if Matt ever ends up falling for Rebekah. It seems like a good plot twist, she seems pretty redeemable. I love that Esther possessed Rebekah though!! I am excited to find out what she'll do with Rebekah and what she and dark Alaric come up with!! I don't think Jeremy will turn vamp, that would be a weakness since he'd be the easiest vamp to kill. I love TVD and I must confess, all of the guys are hot! but Elena could use a bit more range in her emotions. I get how she always has to hold it together but I just want her to lose it, really snap, even if it's just once. She carries a great burden it's time she really reacted. Even if it's just to break down and come back as a stronger, fiercer character afterwards.


you're a freakin' bitch BoredNow

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.


When 9 Russians tell you you're drunk, you lie down.
