The Season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries (Season 5, Episode 22) promises to be explosive — literally! Now that the vampires have been run out of Mystic Falls by the Travelers, it looks like the only way to get rid of them — and to stop the spell from spreading — is to blow up Mystic Falls.

The promo for the climatic episode, which you can watch below, outlines our heroes' plan to blow up the town. However, it might not be that simple, especially with Markos lurking about. But that's not stopping Damon. He's more determined than ever to kill the Travelers after Julian killed Stefan. And now he's pushing Bonnie harder than ever to find a way to stop the disintegration of the Other Side.

Meanwhile, Elena takes matters into her own hands and demands that Liv and Luke help her find a way to bring back Stefan, but Liv refuses to cooperate until Caroline steps in to offer her some motivation. We love when our Blondie turns into a badass. She'll do anything to bring Stefan back. 

Watch the promo below and tell us how excited you are for the finale in the comments!
