There are a couple of season finale spoilers floating around for this Thursday's season 3 finale of The Vampire Diaries, "The Departed". Yes, they are cryptic, but there are some hidden teases as well ;) What will that fateful night's flashback reveal for Elena? Could it be that someone else saved Elena, not Stefan?! You tell me!
The only spoiler you’re getting out of me is that she does make a choice. [Beat] I lied. I have one more spoiler for you: The scene/moment/twist you’ll be talking about Friday morning involves a flashback.
For one thing, it wasn’t part of some bigger conspiracy. “That was an accident. Period. End of story. No supernatural influence,” executive producer Julie Plec says. But on the season finale, Elena and Matt’s impending accident will seem oddly reminiscent of the Gilbert family crash — including who saves them.
