Celebrate good times, come on! Oh, wait, this is Mystic Falls and there are none of those? OK.

According to The Vampire Diaries synopsis for Season 4, Episode 23, “Graduation,” lots of (dead) people show up to watch Mystic Falls High School send its seniors off. The town is full of malevolent spirits, but an unexpected hero comes to save the day, if not the graduation ceremony.

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is in trouble when one of the ghosts comes after him, while Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Matt (Zach Roerig) fight their own cure-hungry spirit.

With all that going on, who still cares about graduation? Caroline (Candice Accola). She gets a special, heart-warming gift. From Klaus (Joseph Morgan) perhaps?

It sounds like Bonnie (Kat Graham) manages to close the veil, but that doesn’t mean the end of Silas. Stefan (Paul Wesley) discovers something truly troubling about him.

Finally, Elena (Nina Dobrev) reaches a conclusion about Stefan and Damon and comes face-to-face with Katherine (Nina Dobrev) in an “epic” encounter. The vamp probably wants her shoes back.
