It’s May, which means spring is here — and so are TV season finales. The Vampire Diaries is no different, with season 4 drawing to a close in a matter of weeks. So when is The Vampire Diaries Season 4 finale?

It’s scheduled for May 16 on The CW, and it’s one you don’t want to miss. Not only are Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev), Caroline (Candice Accola), Bonnie (Kat Graham), and Matt (Zach Roerig) graduating, there are some ghostly guests in this episode. We’ll see some familiar, deceased faces, and we can’t wait to see who’s back from the dead!

If seeing the crew in their caps and gowns isn’t enough to lure you in, there will be some huge cliffhangers that we’re sure everyone will be speculating on all summer. We’ll find out who takes the cure, and that will certainly have some repercussions for Season 5.

Let’s see. It feels like we’re forgetting something important. Oh, yes. Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena, and Stefan. There will be some sense of closure on the triangle as well. The newbie vamp has reached a conclusion of sorts in terms of the brothers. Does that mean she’s chosen one or has she decided to fly solo? Figuring out what’s up with those three is worth tuning in for alone!
