*If you are reading the series and have not read past the third book don't read*
Actually from what i remember from the books (all though they are vert different in the way plot points and the characters are played out versus the show) elena does die at the end of the third book before returning to the books at the end of the fourth one. so i think alaric, elena, and katherine all die. And its just like TVD to have an ending to the second season like that.
