"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 finale aired on May 15 and it was explosive, just like fans were promised. It was also quite emotional and hours later, viewers are still in shock over the ending. Two loved characters died at the end and everyone wants to know if they are really gone. While it is too early for spoilers about season 6 to be released, fans can always speculate.
This season of "TVD" has had a lot of different things going on. The Travelers were mysterious and fans spent forever trying to figure out what their real deal was. The Other Side was disintegrating and then there was the storyline of Luke and Liv. Fans were promised that the season finale would be explosive and shocking. That statement turned out to be true, with some people shedding tears at the outcome.
On the last episode, Julian ripped out Stefan's heart and he died as a result. Some fans believed he was gone for good while others thought he would be brought back somehow. Stefan did go to the Other Side, but was saved from a black hole thanks to his old friend Lexi. Then Bonnie was allowing the deceased to pass through her to the land of the living. Even though Stefan was determined to find Damon first, who was also on the Other Side, he accidentally passed through Bonnie, bringing him back to the mortal world.
The Other Side couldn't be saved and since Bonnie was the anchor, if it disappeared, then she had to go with it. But fans were not expecting Damon to be sucked away into the vortex with her. While so many others were able to be brought back, Damon was just a few seconds too late.
Now people want to know if Damon and Bonnie are really dead. While it seems that Bonnie might not come back since she was the anchor, it is hard to imagine Damon not appearing in "The Vampire Diaries" season 6. The whole show revolves around Damon, Stefan and Elena. But will he come back and if so, how will the writers do it?
WetPaint speculated that Damon and Bonnie might come back. Their reasoning is that the episode ended mid-sentence, leaving it on a cliffhanger. Since this is television, anything is possible. Damon is one of the most popular characters on the show and a lot of fans are saying on Facebook that without him, there is no show. Even though nobody really knows how it will happen, there are a lot of fans that are confident that Damon will appear in the upcoming season.
What did you think of the season finale? Do you think that Damon and Bonnie are gone for good or will they somehow come back? Fans will just have to wait until "The Vampire Diaries" season 6 premieres this fall to find out for sure.
