Something tells us Damon isn’t taking Stefan’s death very well. He’s got that murderous look in his eyes in the extended promo for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale (“Home”). Maybe Markos should be scared.

Now that the Travelers have inhabited Mystic Falls, it looks like the only way to get rid of them is to blow up the town. So Damon comes up with “Project Boom” — aka blow up Mystic Falls. We’re guessing this is the only way to stop the Travelers. After all, if the Travelers home is destroyed, they won’t be able to settle anywhere else because one of their doppelgangers is dead. And if they can’t settle, then they can’t rid the world of magic. Hopefully, this will also stop the Other Side from imploding.

But in order to make Mystic Falls go boom, Damon and Elena need to trigger the explosion… by driving Damon’s car into the Mystic Grill to set off the gas line underneath the town. Are Damon and Elena sacrificing themselves for the good of the town? Or do they jump out of the car before it hits the Grill?

And for those of you hoping to get a glimpse of Stefan in the extended promo, no such luck. It seems that Julie Plec and Co. are keeping the lid sealed on that reveal.

Watch the extended promo below and tell us what you think in the comments below.
