The Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: "As I Lay Dying" Season 2, Episode 22

Can you believe it's already the season finale of The Vampire Diaries? While last week's episode proved to be pretty epic and extremely tragic, it was hard to imagine the finale would top it.  But it did.

Damon tries to apologize (rather sincerely I might add) to Elena for making her feed on his blood and says, "I know I don't deserve your forgiveness, but I need it." Elena tells him she needs time. So, off Damon goes. He takes a drink and then stands in the sun with his ring off and burns. Stefan shows up to rescue Damon and tells him he cannot kill himself. "What's the plan, Superman?" Damon jokes. Even while dying he's funny!

The Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: "The Sun Also Rises" Season 2, Episode 21

Before I get to recapping let me just say I've had a roller coaster of emotions throughout the last two seasons of Vampire Diaries. This week I experienced that on a whole new level and I fully admit to sobbing throughout the final 15 minutes. We knew there would be death and we knew not every beloved character would make it, but the loss of Jenna was an absolute heartbreaker.

The episode begins where last week left off — Caroline and Matt fighting off werewolf Tyler. They manage to escape with Caroline pleading with Matt not to shoot at him anymore.

The Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: "The Last Day" Season 2, Episode 20

This week's episode of The Vampire Diaries was intense to say the least. Tyler returned, Elena made an important declaration, someone got bit and someone got turned.

Elijah explains the real curse to Stefan, and Damon interrupts asking why they're waiting on killing Klaus. When Elena adds that they can't do it too soon for risk of killing Bonnie, Damon quips, "I'll write her a great eulogy." Elijah also shows off an elixir he has which will resuscitate Elena after Klaus drinks her blood. But Damon won't chance the potion not working and takes matters into his own hands — he force-feeds her his blood so that she'd become a vampire and not die.
