WARNING! Huge spoilers for Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 22, “The Departed” ahead!
What the what?! We need to re-watch The Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale three or four times (and we will). We can’t even process the choice Elena (Nina Dobrev) made between the Salvatores because the last minute of the show was too, too shocking.
Basically, Dr. Fell (Torrey DeVitto) pumped our girl full of vamp blood (but who’s her sire?!) and sent her on her merry way. Then Elena plunged over Wickery Bridge to her doom, and then… her eyes popped open. Yep, Elena is 100% vamped out. This twist happened pretty quickly in the books, but are you glad to see her fang out in the show? There are all kinds of implications — for one, she’ll remember every time Damon (Ian Somerhalder) compelled her, including that one kiss and the fact that she met him first. But remember she told Stefan (Paul Wesley) that she never wanted to be a vampire. Yep, like we said, that’s a lot to process.
So, are you glad Elena has joined the world of the undead?
