Vampire Diaries Season 3 Finale Spoilers: Will Elena and Matt Be Saved?
This Thursday’s finale episode ofThe Vampire Diaries will be history repeating itself over by Wickery Bridge! Theextended promo for Season 3, Episode 22, “The Departed” showed us a glimpse of that troublesome OriginalRebekah (Claire Holt) standing in the middle of the road asMatt (Zach Roerig) andElena (Nina Dobrev) are driving along in his truck, causing them to veer off the bridge and crash into the river. Is that her jealousy letting loose? That’s at least one dangerous accident in the finale.
But the episode will also flash back to the wreck which started it all — the Gilbert family accident involving Elena and her parents. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to sense the connection, but TV Guide reports that the flashback crash won’t reveal any supernatural cause to the tragedy.
Executive producer Julie Plec says it “was an accident. Period. End of story,” but there will be another common denominator (aside from Elena) involved in both incidents: the person who saves them.
Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) was the one to rescue Elena from the murky wreck on the first go-round, and it seems he’ll get to be the hero once again for crash number two. If he hasn’t alreadyredeemed himself to Elena, saving her life again might just do the trick, no? Let's just hope more than one human walks away from this accident!
