Mystic Falls is minus one big bad — for now. But there’s still plenty of hurt to go around on the Season 3 finale of The Vampire Diaries. We’re hurtling toward a cliffhanger ending, so prepare yourselves for a heart-stopping final scene.

When Ian Somerhalder spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, he previewed what Damon gets up to in the final moments of the episode. “I was getting my ass kicked,” Ian says of the last scene. (Is that whatthis photo is about?) The actor laments Damon used to be the bad guy, and now he’s “just getting beaten down.” Hm, we wonder who is delivering the thrashing. Alaric (Matt Davis), perhaps? Or maybeKlaus (Joseph Morgan) will get his blood back? Speaking of blood, “There’s a lot,” promises Somerhalder.

Add that to another reason we’re concerned that someone will die, especially since Joseph Morgan thinks there will be “backlash” at the end of “The Departed.”
