Change is coming to The Vampire Diaries.
The CW show's fifth season wrapped up by executing a plan to save the Other Side. After getting all The Travelers in one place, and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) setting up a gas leak, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), with Elena (Nina Dobrev) in tow, crashed through the Mystic Grill causing a massive explosion that killed all parties involved. Once on the Other Side, while Liv (Penelope Mitchell) enacted a resurrection spell, Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Alaric (Matt Davis) were able to cross back through...

Stefan isn't really staying dead on The Vampire Diaries, right? That's the big question heading into Thursday's Season 5 finale.
As the Other Side crumbles and The Travellers' plan to rid Mystic Falls of all spirit magic is in full effect, it's a race against time to figure out how to solve those very big problems. With Stefan (Paul Wesley) having his heart ripped out in the final moments of last week's episode, now more than ever do Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Bonnie (Kat Graham), Caroline (Candice Accola) & Co. need to pull together to bring Stefan back — and also save themselves from impending doom.

How will Damon react to the death of his brother? By threatening Bonnie!
On The Vampire Diaries' penultimate episode, Stefan (Paul Wesley) was shockingly killed in the final minutes by the Traveler inhabiting Tyler's body. And with the Other Side disintegrating, Stefan could potentially go away forever. Now Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is downright pissed, and he is taking it out on the wrong person considering Bonnie (Kat Graham) is their biggest hope to figuring out a way to bring Stefan back.
The Vampire Diaries villain Enzo may be dead, but his revenge is only just beginning.
After learning that the love of his life, Maggie (Heather Hemmens), was killed by his own best friend Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) flipped the 'ol humanity switch so he could exact retribution without a care in the world. After battling it out with Stefan (Paul Wesley), Enzo died, but fortunately for him, he can still make moves from the crumbling other side — and no one, not even Caroline (Candice Accola), is necessarily safe.
Enzo is down, but he's not out quite yet.
Although the witty vampire was killed on Thursday's Vampire Diaries, he will still be a villainous force throughout the rest of the season
On Thursday's episode, Damon's one-time cell partner Enzo (Michael Malarkey) finally found out the fate of his love Maggie (Heather Hemmens). He not only learned that she was dead, but also that his best friend Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had killed her in the 1960s...

Although The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has wanted to direct an episode for a very long time, he says it took him three seasons to summon the courage to ask.
"I decided I wanted to direct when I saw my first Stanley Kubrick film, so that was a very long time ago, but I knew I wanted to direct an episode of The Vampire Diaries from the minute I got one of the lead roles," Wesley tells TVGuide.com. "I just also knew it was presumptuous to ask any sooner than Season 4, so I asked at the beginning of Season 4 and I got to do it in Season 5."

HBO has already foreshadowed the royal wedding between King Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell this season, but fear not: These nuptials will be far more civilized than last year's traumatic Red Wedding. Still, there will be barbs thrown thanks to those quarrelsome Lannisters. In particular, Cersei doesn't respect the arranged marriage — or her new queen — and will make quick work of publicly undermining her authority.

Those who attended Saturday's Vampire Diaries panel at PaleyFest may now be deaf — fans of Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev definitely made themselves heard. Unfortunately, that also meant that the cast and executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries could hardly get a word in edgewise. Here are the five mini teases they were able to share in between screams:

Paul Wesley waited patiently for four seasons before sinking his teeth into directing an episode of The CW's The Vampire Diaries.
