We are mere hours away from The Vampire Diaries Season 4 finale.

But The CW just released its 2013-2014 schedule and, along with it, an official press release that teased what's ahead in Mystic Falls... on SEASON 5!

Consider yourself SPOILER WARNED and scroll down if you want to read through a couple clues regarding what's on tap following tonight's "Graduation."

Old Elena?

Come October, according to the network itself...

The series heads into its fifth season with some characters headed off to college, a newly cured vampire trying to survive as a human, and a shocking Salvatore secret.

So there we have it! Someone WILL take the cure. Seniors WILL graduate. And the past will seemingly come back to haunt Damon and Stefan. Hmmm... sound off with your theories now!

UPDATE, 6/18: At the ATX Television Festival, Julie Plec said Delena really will give it a go on Season 5 as a couple, while Jeremy will have a tough time explaining his revival. D'uh!

well 4 all the comments i have red all are in favor of Damon being with Elena,but the truth is Stefan always tried to keep Elena human and protected her even before Damon came in season 1.the director is too harsh on Stefan,i mean he always tries to protect every one and do the right thing even Caroline knows that.Damon is a good guy but he is w reckless and and doesn't care,but all Stefan has done was all to protect Elena and every one else.So let us see what happens now that he,or as it is Claus and then they cant find the double danger that is the other Stefan to save every one again and again and again and again and again

DAMON UNDERSTANDS ELENA, NOT ONLY THAT HE MAKES HER ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE IS ENERGETIC AND BURNING WITH HIM. WITH STEFAN ALTHOUGH THEY HAD AN EPIC LOVE (WELL SORT OF) HE JUST TALKS AND TRIES TO MAKE HER NOT DO WHAT SHE FEELS!!. DAMON AND ELENA STILL ROCK AND I HOPE SEASON 5 SHOWS US MORE ABOUT THIS 2 LOVE BATS!!!!!. I HOPE THAT TO ALARIC COMES BACK.

So far the series hasn't followed the books at all. I've read all of them and Elena does end up with Stefen. However as the series aren't keeping to the books at all, here's hoping for Delena all the way!!!!! Stefen can just rot in his cofin and I wouldn't care - I am sooooo over his "poor me" stuff, everytime I see him moaning over Elena I just get annoyed and want him to shut up. He had his time with her, now he needs to move on!!

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]
