The Vampire Diaries Season 5: What We Hope to See

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...

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!

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.
