Also, Klaus's open eyes, set in a desiccated face, mutely staring at Bonnie and Damon...CREEPY!

I loved Elena's little speech to Matt (you know, while he was watching her to see if the roofies were going to kick in). Brought tears to my eyes. I also think it's noteworthy that she mentions that consuming love, as it becomes so poignant when we later learn about Damon and Elena's ACTUAL first meeting...when he tells her:
"You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for….”
We have not seen the last of Delena yet...not even close.

When Alaric stakes Klaus, I could feel Bex’s devastation and Damon’s fear for his bloodline. Absolutely FEEL it. Awesome scene. Kudos to Claire Holt, truly.

When Elijah shows up to make a deal with Elena, we revisit the central theme of the triangle that Damon makes choices for Elena, while Stefan sits back and lets Elena make her own choices. I kind of think that this theme also shows that Damon will do anything to save Elena, even if it means she hates him for it, while Stefan won't risk losing Elena’s affection. But arguments have merit, but I think Elena’s survival should be left up to Damon. Oh, BTW, I LOVED Damon's speaker-phone argument, hilarious!

So, Blondie and the hybrid are going to run, huh? Don’t they think they can take out the council? And, at this point as they discuss running together, is Tyler really Tyler or is he already Klaus?

Um, is it REALLY a good idea to leave Bonnie with Klaus? And, of course, Damon thinks it's a good enough idea to agree to Bonnie's request. Honestly, I actually feared that Bonnie was going to allow Klaus to drink her blood or something... I didn’t anticipate the spell she did, though, in hindsight, I should have realized something shady was about to happen..

As the show opens, it’s nice to see Elena smiling! And great to see Sara Canning as well :-) A few minutes later, when the bros are talking to Jeremy we get an awesome Damon line: "Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you not being the dumbest brother on Earth?"
I kind of wish it was Damon that went back for her, but it's fitting that it was Stefan. Once the friends returned home, I thought for SURE that the Caroline/Elena exchange was foreshadowing Caroline’s imminent demise. Glad I was wrong!

Up next is a nice little flashback moment that reminded me how Bonnie was once normal and not quite so tragic. It was nice to see the kids in school doing normal things, and it’s nice to get a little bit of insight into Matt and Elena’s relationship.

Next we see Evilaric offering beer and a “stake” to Jeremy. He tries to convince him to join Team Vampire Hunter. I LOVE me some Salvatores but, were I Jeremy (and Jeremy were not a fictional character), I might actually agree with Alaric. The vampires have done nothing but kill him, endanger his sister and sort of screw up his life. There was a moment in which I genuinely worried that Jer might fall in line with Evilaric's plans.

@Jennifer Renee Beatley
She woke up in a morgue. Pretty sure Elena was dead.

It's true Elena did not say she chose Stefan because she met him first but she said if Damon was first she may have picked hiim.

WOW! That's all I can say. But why wasn't more said about DAMON MEETING ELENA FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I would like to point out, Elena DID NOT say she chose Stefan because she met him first. She said he came into her life at the time when she needed someone and she fell for him. I don't think we should assume that if Elena met Damon first, she will fall for him. She said, maybe. Both Damon and Stefan love Elena and they would've made different choices for or about her. I think that's another reason why she's torn. Stefan always gives Elena her free will. Damon always makes choices that will make sure Elena will be alive. She's an 18 year old human being and not perfect. I don't think she even knows who she totally is. So, chill with the judgements.

@mich67...Yeah, I'll still be watching...I'm a glutton for punishment.

I'll still be watching, too...for laughs.

So yeah, turning would have worked best emotionally and shockingly in the s1 finale, with exact same scene, but with katherine instead of becky.

In my opinion though, if Elena turned in S1, it would be too soon. I think S3 is okay but the writers could've done better. I expected more from them. Season 1 was the best and they brought it to that level. It's disappointing that S3 (when Elena turns) is not one of the best. I do agree that it'll be more shocking and emotional if Katherine caused Elena's 'death'

I'm glad Meredith gave Elena the vampire blood. I hope it's from Damon's line. So that if one original from the bloodline dies, they all dies.
I don't like the twist of Klaus as their bloodline. I hope this will change in the future. Some mix up the writer would create. They're good with that. I was hoping for Rebekah or Elijah to be the bloodline. Klaus is just too predictable.
All in all, I think it's a great finale. Not the best among the three. But it was amazing. I love how Matt is like a brother to Elena. And I hope Matt and Jeremy will be a family. Since both of them are alone now.
In the world where The Vampire Diaries exists (i assume news travel fast among vampires), I wonder what Katharine would feel or think if or when she finds out that Elena is turning to a vampire? Cause when Elena was a human, Katharine might have a shot with either one after a century or so but now that Elena is a vampire, she might not have that shot anymore. haha. Poor Katharine. I love her though.
