'Vampire Diaries' Finale Recap: Jeremy Sees Dead People, And Damon & Elena FINALLY Kiss!

Posted Thu, May 12, 2011 11:08pm EDT

An epic death, an epic kiss, and epic new powers for Jeremy! What did you think of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ season finale?

Considering the degree to which both my heart and brain have been sufficiently blown by The Vampire Diaries season finale, I can’t believe I’m even able to write this review. Every scene was heart-stopping, every plot twist unspeakably brilliant. “Delena” shippers got the one thing we’ve all been waiting for, while “Stelena” shippers will likely spend their summer anxiously wondering if their favorite couple stands a chance of lasting next season.

Let’s begin with a moment of silence of the late, very great Elijah (Daniel Gillies.) As could be expected, the promise Klaus (Joseph Morgan) made to him last week came with a catch — reuniting Elijah with his family members meant killing him. And that’s exactly what Klaus did. I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that this was not the last we’ll see of Elijah. After all, even dead Vampire Diaries characters have a way of popping back up. (But more on that later.)

Klaus also set his sights on Stefan (Paul Wesley) this week. In exchange for giving Stefan his blood — hello, werewolf bite cure — Klaus forced him to hunt and feed on an innocent human, then drink a ton of non-bunny blood. He’s now totally Team Klaus, whether he likes it or not. And judging by how much he enjoyed falling off the blood wagon, I’d say a part of him is definitely liking it.

As for the other Salvatore brother, Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) gradual deterioration — physically, mentally and definitely emotionally — took its toll on almost everyone in Mystic Falls. First, he dodged a bullet fired by Sheriff Forbes and it ended up going straight into Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen!) For a solid minute, I really did think he was going to die for reals, but then Bonnie (Kat Graham) called on the spirits of her witchy ancestors to bring him back to life.

Even with blood dripping down her damn face, Kat Graham looked amazing and the scene was somehow still the couple’s most epic scene yet. When she screamed out, “Please! I love him!” my heart grew 10 sizes. Just like in The Grinch.

And yes, I really did save the juiciest part for last: Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) finally kissed! Like, actually kissed. For real. On the mouth! They were laying in bed together, Damon literally experiencing his final moments of life, and he apologized for not being the one she loved. She told him she liked him “just the way you are” and then planted one right on his kisser.

Of course, that’s exactly when Katherine showed up with the cure in hand and saved Damon’s life. Needless to say, things are going to get awkward last season. It’s like on the last episode of Seinfeld, when Elaine thought she was going to die in the plane crash so she started to tell Jerry she loved him, and then they didn’t end up dying. Yup, The Vampire Diaries is exactly like Seinfeld. But with more vampires.

And now… how about that ending? I figured something was going to be different about Jeremy after he was brought back to life, but I didn’t expect him to go all Haley Joel Osment on us! In the final moments of the episode, Jeremy realized he can see dead people — more specifically Anna (Malese Jow) and Vicki (Kayla Ewell)!

This brilliant development gives me several thoughts:

1. Jeremy is awesome now.
2. It’s super creepy that Jeremy’s ex-girlfriends have been hanging out in his house this whole time. Seriously, don’t they have anywhere else to go? And do Anna and Vicki hang out together in the afterlife, like bestie ghosts?
3. Now that Jeremy can talk to spirits, we’ll probably get to see Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning) soon!

So many changes. So many new developments. So many trending topics on Twitter (well done, by the way.) Head to the comments section to tell me how you really feel about the finale: Do you think Damon and Elena will try to make it work? Do you think Stefan will be a full-on villain next season?

Is it just me, or is Stefan very hot as a evil vampire? ;)

This is what I think it will happen in the next Season – Jeremy will be able to see dead people (or only supernatural beings)- with his ‘powers’ – he will be able to see Elijah and find where he is buried. Elena, Damon and the others will bring Elijah to live (probably his brothers and sisters as well) and they will all go after Klaus and Stefan. They will kill Klaus and rescue Stefan. Altough I wish there will be more of Damon and Elena special moments, I do not think there will be. They will ofcourse join forces to save Stefan but no hot romance for them. I believe her when she said she likes Damon (and there is chemistry – look at her when they make eye contact) but she loves Stefan. And please – DO NOT FOLLOW the Books!! the story is only based on them but the series have different endings!! Ian Somerhalder is a great actor – I love his facial expressions :)) and he has this Damon humor – makes me laugh :))

What the hell is Jeremy? I know he can see dead people but what supernatural entity is he going to be? A Necromancer? Or does he just see them like Odd Thomas from the Dean Koontz books

Elena won’t be able to break it off with Damon now. He’ll start to cry. He’s been crying like a 12 year old girl all season. LOL Bring on the real men, Elijah, Klaus, Ric, etc…

I don’t see Damon and Elena happeining right away. I just can’t see Elena (or Damon) pursuing a relationship with each other in light of what happened with Stefan. I do see them bonding more in a quest to save Stefan, though.
