Ian Somerhalder has given the season finale of The Vampire Diaries his lofty seal of approval, sending fan excitement to new levels of fever pitch as well as prompting a barrage of rumors about the unthinkable happening...
The undead ultra-babe was interviewed by E! Online for it's Watch With Kristen segment and Somerhalder let slip that the action packed ending is leagues away from what fans are expecting. [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) star spilled that;
The ending, I think, is really gonna throw people. It definitely involves Damon in a very cool way. There is some very very cool stuff with Damon, Elena, Bonnie…stuff you just didn't see…It is definitely a cliffhanger
But, it gets even more juicy according to Entertainment Wise. The website reports that Somerhalder implied that the end could be nigh for our beloved Damon. When pressed about Damon's survival Somerhalder teased by saying;
When Damon dies, it is the dopest scene
Surely he can't mean in this season?! Whenever Damon's death day could be, it is quite worrying that Somerhalder already knows the ins and outs of the scene...
Although just thinking about Damon's possible departure is enough to get most fans writhing around in a cold sweat, it isn't the most unlikely scenario in the universe.
According to Caroline Dries, the executive producer of TVD, Somerhalder has previously threatened to quit the hit CW series unless his conditions were met. Dries stated that the hunky actor took her to one side and said he would leave the show if Enzo was killed off.
Thankfully the production team bowed to his demands and purposefully had Enzo appear at the end of an episode as a ghost to signify that his story is not over yet... Dries teased that;
He (Enzo) is going to become a ghost villain moving forward. We'll see him all the way through to the finale as the bad guy
All in all, it seem like things are as mysterious as ever in Mystic Falls! With so many clues, rumors and quotes rushing around the only way to know what is going to go down is to hold on tight for the thrilling season 5 finale.
If Somerhalder is excited, I am too!
