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

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
