What Just Happened on 'The Vampire Diaries' - Season Finale Recap!

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!!!

OMG… Did all of that really just happen on the season finale of The Vampire Diaries this evening?! We’re still trying to process everything that went on!

If you forgot what happened on the show last week, it appeared that Paul Wesley‘s character Stefan was killed off the show for good after his heart was ripped out of his chest. But as we know, it is rare for anyone to stay dead forever on the show.

During this week’s season five finale, there were some major developments for Ian, Kat and Matt Davis‘ characters.

Click inside to find out what happened on the season finale episode…

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) are officially dead! And we mean, dead dead. After Damon learned of Stefan’s (Wesley) death, he was on a mission to bring his one and only brother back from the deteriorating Other Side.

So he crafted a plan to blow up the Travelers in Mystic Falls, complete with him as the one who lights the match. He enlisted from the only humans he knows – Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig). Obviously, Elena (Nina Dobrev) was not OK with this suicide mission, so she went along, much to his chagrin. Damon and Elena died – seemingly as humans, long story – in the blast.

Meanwhile, Caroline (Candice Accola) killed Luke in order to get Liv to do the spell to bring back Stefan, Elena, Damon, and Tyler (Michael Trevino), who also died, at the hand of Markos and the Travelers’ spell around Mystic Falls. Everything seemed to be going well as Stefan, Tyler, Alaric (Matt Davis) – yes, Alaric! – and Markos (Michael Malarkey) passed back through Bonnie. Tyler realized he was no longer a hybrid, but a human! Does that mean everyone else is? Or just those who died as humans? We don’t know yet!

Anyway, Elena impatiently waited for Damon to pass back over, but he was too late. Lexi (Arielle Kebbel) – yes, Lexi! – risked her own chance at life to hold out for Damon, but Liv cut the spell off too soon. Damon was stuck on the Other Side for good. And it was getting bad over there.

In the final few scenes, we saw Elena break down in tears over her lost love, begging him to come back. Bonnie told her to say goodbye to Damon, and he told her she was the best thing to ever happen to him. Even though she couldn’t hear him. In the interim, Bonnie made a call to Jeremy and broke the news about her own fate. She never had a chance to survive as the anchor.

In the end, Damon and Bonnie held hands as the wind picked up and they went into the light, literally.
