"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 finale is quickly approaching, but there are still a few episodes left. So what will happen before the final episode airs? It turns out that fans are not going to have to wait to see characters killed off. According to an April 28 post by Fashion & Style, it is rumored that there will be three deaths before the season finale airs. The website also discussed Damon's promise to Enzo, something that will happen in "The Vampire Diaries" season 5, episode 20, airing Thursday night.
The information originally came from Zap2It, who reported that executive producer Caroline Dries said that there will be three more deaths in "The Vampire Diaries" in the next few episodes. Even though she wouldn't say who would die, she did mention that all three of those deaths would be permanent. With such vague information, all fans can do is speculate. The one clue she did give is that they would be major deaths.
As fans recall, on the last episode of "The Vampire Diaries," Enzo died and isn't too happy being a ghost. In fact, he vowed revenge. Dries told The Hollywood Reporter that there is a reason why Enzo appeared as a ghost even though he was killed off. She said,
“We purposefully had him show up at the end as a ghost to imply that his story isn't over. He is going to become a ghost villain moving forward. We'll see him all the way through to the finale as the bad guy."
Spoilers for the next airing, "The Vampire Diaries" season 5, episode 20, titled "What Lies Beneath" may give a clue about Enzo. A sneak peek shows the group at a remote cabin, hiding from the Travelers. Elena is relaxing in the bathtub when suddenly a man appears. He pushes her head under the water, trying to drown her. Could that be Enzo, getting his revenge as a ghost? Or perhaps it is one of the Travelers? Or maybe Elena is under so much stress that she just dreams being attacked?
The synopsis for the upcoming episode says that a ghost will use fire and violence to make its presence known. Since Enzo has revealed that he wants revenge, it would make sense that the ghost using fire and violence could be him. For fans that are questioning him attacking Elena since he is a ghost, Dries said something interesting,
“He [Enzo] can do a lot from the Other Side. He's determined to make Damon's life and Stefan's life a living hell. We realize how and why he's able to do that, and it's because all the turmoil on the Other Side is giving him more liberties than other ghosts have had. So his story isn't just about him being the villain but it's also about us getting a new set of eyes into this world, the Other Side world."
"Enzo's pissed that he's dead but amplified around him, people are being sucked out of the ether just like Vicki was. His concern is, 'I want out.'"
The executive producer also said that Damon is going to promise Enzo that he will get him out of the Other Side. As they are trying to get Enzo out of there, they will also try to help Bonnie. As fans know, she is trying to stop the Other Side from falling apart and need to get their friends out while they still can. Unfortunately, Damon makes the vow under extreme duress. He has no idea how to get Enzo out and nobody has been able to be free from the Other Side without huge consequences.
What do you think is going to happen on "The Vampire Diaries" season 5, episode 20? Which three characters do you predict will die before the season finale? Remember to catch the next episode of "TVD" on the CW on Thursday night.
