We don’t like it any more than you do, but all good things must come to an end. And that includes Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries. Mark your calendars for May 12, because the last episode, “As I Lay Dying,” is bound to include spells, curses, and spilled blood. Yep. Executive producer Julie Plec has told us several times that not everyone we know and love is making it to Season 3. This is going to be one long summer.
