Hearts will break and life in Mystic Falls will never be the same after tonight’s dramatic season finale of The Vampire Diaries.
Determined to protect his sister, Jeremy (Steven R McQueen) makes a decision that will change everything. In the harsh reality of the present situation, Elena (Nina Debrov) longs for simpler times when her parents, Grayson (Jason MacDonald) and Miranda (Erin Beute), and Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning) were still alive and her biggest concern was her relationship with Matt (Zach Roerig).
Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) leave Mystic Falls together on a mission, but soon split up when Elena needs one of them. Meanwhile, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) are forced to make a life-changing decision.
Finally, Bonnie (Kat Graham) makes a secret deal that has heart-breaking consequences.
The episode also explores in detail the miserable scene in which Elena’s parents were killed. Debrov explained to the American TV Guide how gruelling the scene was to shoot.
“It’s something I will hopefully never have to survive I real life – trying to survive under water while trying to save other people.”
The underwater shoot distressed the starlet despite her experience as a scuba diver.
“It was quite intense and a little scary. I’m used to [being] underwater with a tank, but having to act without the tank is completely different. We were in the water two days [in a row] for eight hours a day. By the end, I was so exhausted I slept like a baby.”
