The Vampire Diaries Death Pool: Who Will Die on the Season Finale?

at . Comments

Death is coming to Mystic Falls.

Producers have confirmed that at least one significant character will die on this week's season finale of The Vampire Diaries, a twist that has fans in an understandable uproar.

While some believe the show will shock us and kill off Stefan or Damon, allow us to put those rumors to rest: ain't gonna happen. But anyone else? Pretty much fair game.

As fans in our Vampire Diaries forum debate which character is the most likely go, we weigh the odds of all Mystic Falls residents below...

He's scarcely been seen over the last few weeks, meaning storylines don't require his presence. But the show has teased him as a werewolf and it seems unlikely they'd kill him off before delving more deeply into this side of him.
Odds of dying: 25-1

Will nice guys really finish last? Killing off Matt would raise Caroline's profile, giving her a personal stake (get it?!?) in the dangerous town shenanigans, while also delivering a blow to Elena.
Odds of dying: 10-1

She's set Stefan and Damon up for a fall, but might guilt overwhelm this witch? If she changes her mind about turning on her BFF, it's not hard to see Bonnie trading her life for one of the Salvatores.
Odds of dying: 20-1

She's perfectly nice and all, but would anyone miss her if she were gone? Plus, as Miss Mystic Falls, she'll be sitting on top of a float. In other words: a prime target.
Odds of dying: 12-1

This would be welcome news for fans of David Anders. The actor that plays John Gilbert would likely stick around if Aunt Jemma went the way of Elena's adopted parents. After all, who would get custody of Jeremy and Elena without Jenna in the picture? The latter's birth father, of course.
Odds of dying: 15-1

John Gilbert
Our best guess. Here's what we see transpiring: John is killed before Elena learns that he was her birth father. Once she discovers this information - and that Stefan kept it from her - Elena will creep closer and closer to the open arms of Damon.
Odds of dying: 5-1

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.


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.
