  • THAT WAS LIKE THREE EPISODES IN ONE!

    The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Finale Review: Rompin' Circumstance

    There are packed episodes of TV, and then there are packed episodes of The Vampire Diaries. And then there are episodes like “Graduation,” which crammed in, like, three episodes’ worth of stuff, even by this series’ standards.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    Graduation has arrived and Mystic Falls is filled with ghosts that are planning to settle unfinished business and to fulfill their destinies. Damon is in grave danger when he meets a ghost, while Matt and Rebekah work together against a ghost that is trying to reach the cure. Everyone gathers up for Graduation when help comes from someone unexpected. At the same time Caroline gets a surprising graduation gift and Bonnie is very close at closing the veil. Elena makes a decision about the Salvatores and has a showdown with Katherine. Stefan makes a horrifying discovery about Silas.

    • What an episode..

      10
      Klaus's sweet words towards Karoline,Bonnie saying goobye to Jeremy(Which left me in tears),Damon's sacrifice towards Elena,Stefan doing the same,Rebekkah showing humanity towards Matt and the end.. I thought it was amazing knowing that Silas is alive and will take the form of Stefan,curious what they're going to do with his role toward season 5 and what's gonna happen to Stefan,and Bonnie! Great end which left me almost at the edge of my seat but don't think it is the best season finale of all

      +the fact that they should've maybe took that for episode 22 to end.moreless
    • Brilliant finale!

      10
      Brilliant finale! Bonnies dead, Jeremy is not, The dead came back and then disappeared again, Silas is alive and and looks just like Stephan, while Stephan's trapped for the forseeable future in a safe at the bottom of a lake (Angel anyone?) Rebecca loves Matt, Klaus loves Caroline and Elena loves Damon, who nearly died before Klaus came back to save the day! No one wanted the cure after all, so Elena gave it to Katherine - Who most certainly didn't want it either!moreless

    • Hopefully Season 5 Will Get The Show Back On Track

      8.0
      Although the finale made me not wanna wait until October(which is when the season premiere will be),this was the worst season of the show especially when they brought Jeremy back to life but not Alaric & didn't start getting good until Katherine came God the writers kept her on because without her,the show is with the Originals gone,the show would just be about Elena being in love with Stefan & Damon(only Damon more at this time),Tyler & Caroline's trouble in paradise relationship(Klaus may have left,but this Jesse guy will be hitting on Caroline while Tyler is coming back to town),Jeremy talking to ghost Bonnie(for now),and Matt hopefully they have a good storyline this season and don't have any last minute changes or have Silas turn soft by having him fall for one of the girls because that's what ruined seasons 3 & 4 due to Klaus falling for Caroline and no longer acting like the villan which caused some fans to forget why they're trying to kill him in the first place.moreless

      • Kol: (to other ghosts) Welcome back. It was our deaths that allowed this day to come to pass. Massacres performed in the name of resurrecting the immortal Silas. Twelve hybrids, twelve witches, the slaughter of innocents by the so-called hero protectors of Mystic Falls. They risked unleashing hell on earth for their own selfish gains. And today, that's exactly what they're going to get.

      • Alaric: So, you get off on terrorizing innocent people?
        Connor: And who might you be?
        Alaric: I'm the guy responsible for the 18-year-old you just threatened.
        Connor: Well, that 18-year-old snapped my neck with her bare hands.
        Alaric: And I'm also the guy who showed her how to do that.
