The 100th episode of a television series is a big deal. Financially, because it marks the point at which shows are attractive to cable networks for syndication. Emotionally, because it means said show has been on for five seasons, which is rare in the television world. Basically, there is a lot to celebrate. How did The Vampire Diaries cast and crew ring in their 100th ep?

“Thank you @julie_plec & @kevwilliamson for the delicious crepes! Happy 100th! Woo hoo!” Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) Instagrammed yesterday, along with a snapshot of the on-set crepe spread executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson sprung for. The sign in the foreground next to the crepes reads: “100 episodes! We’ve savored every sweet moment. Love, Julie and Kevin.” Punny, guys!

We all have a lot to thank Julie and Kevin for. Without them, we’d have no TVD and no The Originals! Can you imagine the world without these dark, emotional television worlds? Our weeks would be a little bit duller, and we’d know way less about doppelgangers. TVD has had its ups and downs, but, as a whole, it has been a fast-paced, character-driven drama that has given the fading vampire craze something to be proud of. Here’s to 100 more episodes!

What do we know about the 100th episode, aka Season 5, Episode 11? Well, director Chris Grismer Instagrammed a snapshot of what looks like bloody bed sheets from the set during filming, which suggests a grievous injury for one of our TVDers. There will also be an 19th-century flashback featuring Stefan, his very dashing side-part, and a horse and buggy — not necessarily in that order. We will  be getting a Matt/Jeremy/Damon scene, as we know from Zach Roerig’s (Matt Donovan) tweet during last week’s filming. In conclusion, there is plenty to look forward to in this watermark ep!
