The Vampire Diaries Season 5: What We Hope to See

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Following another hiatus, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 returns tonight with a new episode.

It will then air another new episode next week... and the week after that... and the week after that. Nothing but fresh installments each Thursday night up through the finale on May 15.

Most fans agree this has been a somewhat uneven season, one filled with unexplained Travelers, an overabundance of Dopplegangers and not nearly enough shots of Jeremy in a tanktop.

But it's not too late! The series can still turn itself around and leave us starving for Season 6.

Below, a handful of diehards (TV Fanatics Leigh Raines, Miranda Wicker, Matt Richenthal and Steve Marsi; along with Crissy Calhoun and Heather Vee from Vampire-Diaries.net) come up with a wish list for what they hope to see on these final five episodes...

More Muscles Please!
Can we put the Travelers out to pasture for good? Please and thanks. Also: at least two scenes of Jeremy’s biceps before the finale. - Miranda Wicker

What do YOU think, TVD Fanatics? What do you want to see as we steam toward the finale? Weigh in below and return tonight for my complete review of The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 18!

I can hardly wait for season 6. When I sit down and watch the vampire diaries it's like I'm living through elena. Sure, there is tons of drama and danger and conflict, but who wouldn't want 2 gorgeous vampires fawning over them? Especially Damon. I sincerely hope they end up together when all is said and done. The most frustrating part is that they know they are made for each other but continue to push one another away. But it's real and hopefully they will end up together

Bring Lexi back. And Tom Avery. Bring Tom and Elena Together. Get Katherine back and get her and Stefan together. And then Silas and Amara can be together on the other side. That is how the doublegangers are supposed to be.

damon has loved elena for 5 seasons. their love evolved and grew into something so solid. he has loved her unconditionally. now all of a sudden its being shown that their relationship is just physical. that JUST DOESNT MAKE SENCE. there has been such a huge build up to the relationship. and suddenly it seems so disconnected. why should their rel suddenly be so toxic and superficial? the writing is now getting stupid and illogical...! its s desperate attempt to keep the love triangle going! stephan and elena dreaming about each other ...??!! suddenly damon and elena are all just about sex?! makes NO SENCE WHATSOEVER!

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
