The final episode of the last season of the highly popular show is called “I Was Feeling Epic.” According to Paul Wesley, it will be a satisfying end to an immensely popular show. However, the actor who plays Stefan reveals that a major character will die in the finale. The last episode of the CW series, which won’t be more than an hour, will have a lot to deliver. Wesley said he was “blown away” by the fact that the makers were able to tell it all in just 44 minutes. He called the finale episode a “satisfying” one.
Ian Somerhalder, the actor who plays Damon, said earlier that it was good that the show was coming to an end. He also said that it might not be a good idea to have a reboot. It will be “stretching” it, he said.
“In 10 years, I’m going to be living probably on a ranch in Wyoming and you’ll never hear from me again,” the Hollywood Reporter quoted the actor as saying. “It’s good to close this chapter… there’s something beautiful about closure.”

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 16 promo was released on March 3, and it has already got more than 400,000 views. The promo does not reveal much, but it says the episode will show how it all started and how it will all end. The finale seems to be a roller coaster ride from past to present to future. From day one, everyone has been talking about the love triangle in the show. Somerhalder says in the extended promo that it is going to be a “hell of a ride.” He asks people to “get ready” for it.
Stefan and Caroline, played by Candice King, finally got married in the show’s episode called “We’re planning a June wedding.” The March 3 episode did not, however, feature a happy wedding celebration. The wedding was planned to lure the reigning queen of hell, Katherine, played by Nina Dobrev. While Katherine did not appear at the wedding, the episode left viewers wondering who would die in the finale.
As Wesley said that someone would die in the finale, the same was claimed by Entertainment Weekly. The finale will apparently feature a funeral that is going to leave Elena Gilbert crying. Julie Plec, who co-wrote the finale episode with co-creator Kevin Williamson, said they were “absolutely feeling epic” while shooting the scene.
“We wanted to go big, emotionally, with the action, and with the spectacular of it.”
TV Guide wonders if it’s Bonnie Bennett, played by Kat Graham, who dies in the finale. She has martyr herself many times before. She also has nothing to lose, as Enzo is gone. Alternately, it could be Damon. If he sacrifices himself to save Mystic Falls, his brother and Elena, it would be a great way to prove that he is not a selfish monster anymore. It’s all speculation at the moment.
For now, you have The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 16 promo. Watch it and warm up for the finale, which airs on Friday, March 10 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
