Were you too busy frantically scouring the internet for a Mother’s Day present to watch The Vampire Diaries? (Is it too late to send flowers?) Well, you missed some major moments — and familiar faces — in Season 4, Episode 22, “The Walking Dead.” Seriously, our faces are still stained with mascara tears.

But it’s OK. The episode is available on The CW’s Vampire Diaries site or you can get it from iTunes here. So why should you watch it? So many reasons! First, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is back to her old self. Sort of. OK, she’s mostly just focused on killing Katherine (Nina Dobrev), so she’s still acting kind of bitchy.

What else can we tell you? Bonnie (Kat Graham) manages to drop the veil, but Silas isn’t about to let her one-up him that easily. And like we said, some old favorites from beyond the grave drop by...

If all that wasn’t enough to convince you, we don’t know what will! Get thee to The CW and watch on. How else will you be ready for the Season 4 finale? Season 4, Episode 23, “Graduation”? Let’s just say Mystic Falls is about to get very... hunted.
