‘The Vampire Diaries’ Episode Guide (March 10): Series Finale

“Forever Yours” Special Presentation (03/10/17; 8:00-9:00PM) – After eight amazing seasons, The Vampire Diaries is coming to a dramatic and epic end.

This one-hour retrospective features interviews with past and present cast members and guest stars, a conversation with the executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, behind-the-scenes footage from the final season and special moments from the past eight years.

“I Was Feeling Epic” Series Finale (03/10/17) – With the fate of Mystic Falls at stake, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) must fight their greatest enemy for one last battle.

The final episode of “The Vampire Diaries” was directed by Julie Plec. It was written by Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson.

In season six of “The Vampire Diaries,” after his girlfriend Elena (Nina Dobrev) was forced into a supernatural coma, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) vowed to protect Bonnie (Kat Graham) at all costs, even though Bonnie’s life is now linked to Damon’s happiness.

Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) put their relationship on hold after a rollercoaster romance provoked by Caroline’s mother’s death. Alaric (Matt Davis) lost his fiancée, Jo, along with the twin babies she was carrying. And Lily Salvatore (guest star Annie Wersching), Damon and Stefan’s mother, emerged from a supernatural prison with the help of Enzo (Michael Malarkey), bringing with her a sinister family of witch-vampire hybrids called the Heretics (guest stars Elizabeth Blackmore, Scarlett Byrne, Teressa Liane, Tim Kang and Jaiden Kaine).

Season seven of “The Vampire Diaries” finds those closest to Elena Gilbert striving to redefine themselves in the wake of losing her. Some recover, while others slide back to their darkest selves. Lily takes advantage of this rocky emotional terrain and works to drive a wedge between her sons, even as she loses control of her volatile family. As the Heretics take up residence in Mystic Falls, Matt (Zach Roerig) will stand up for the humans, while Bonnie’s fighter instincts harden as she spends more and more time with Damon. Alaric hits rock bottom before finding new hope in an impossible supernatural mystery—which could either be his salvation, or the ultimate test of Stefan and Caroline’s love story. And looming over all the present-day suspense, flash-forwards to three years in the future will show glimpses of a horrific supernatural threat with profound consequences for our heroes and Mystic Falls.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Outerbanks Entertainment, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. The series was developed by Kevin Williamson (“The Following,” “Scream”) & Julie Plec (“The Originals,” “Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), who serve as executive producers along with Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Pretty Little Liars”) and Caroline Dries (“Melrose Place,” “Smallville”).
