In The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 22, “The Walking Dead,” Bonnie (Kat Graham) dropped the veil between the living and the Other Side, and it was ghosts galore. So how many people tuned in to watch Mystic Falls get flooded with familiar faces? (Oh, how we've missed them!)

According to The Futon Critic, The Vampire Diaries ratings held relatively steady compared to Season 4, Episode 21, “She’s Come Undone”: It had 2.155 million viewers last night, though the numbers may be adjusted later and that’s without DVR tallies included.

Those numbers are actually down a bit from The Originals backdoor pilot, which aired two weeks ago and had 2.2 million viewers. Regardless, The CW has faith in both shows and picked them both up for the fall season.

Next week’s episode, Season 4, Episode 23, “Graduation” is the Season 4 finale. We’re hearing there are lots of big twists and cliffhangers, so you won’t want to wait until Friday to watch!
