The time has finally come, Vampire Diaries fans, for Season 5 to go out with a bang — literally! Season 5, Episode 22 (“Home”) is the gang’s last chance to stop the Travelers from destroying magic and the Other Side. What is Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) big plan? Blow up Mystic Falls, of course!
With Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) on a mission to escape the Other Side before it collapses, Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) are strapping in and ready to start a huge explosion to halt the Travelers in their tracks. Apparently they’re going to trigger a chain reaction using the gas lines beneath the town by crashing into the Mystic Grill — we just hope Delena doesn’t go down in flames!
It’s still too early to consider anyone safe, especially since the synopsis for the episode teases that “heroism, sacrifice, relief, and despair” will all take place. At the end of the night we know there will be heartbreak and tears — it’s the Vampire Diaries, after all!
What do you think will happen in the Season 5 finale? Hit the comments and start speculating!
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday, May 15, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
