The whole Travelers storyline has been a bit of a bore but the season five finale of The Vampire Diaries? I kinda sorta liked it.

Although, I actually thought there would be more casualties. I mean, real ones. I thought Sheriff Forbes was going to be a goner. Maybe Tyler and Bonnie too. But where it stands right now…Alaric is back from the dead. And I’m so thankful. Enzo is back from the dead. And I’m doubly thankful. Silas and Marcus are gone. A fact of which I’m supremely thankful. May those two never darken Mystic Falls’ doorstep again.

But the big news is that Bonnie and Damon are stuck on the other side, or wherever that massive white light took them. I thought Bonnie’s Grams made some sort of sacrifice for her granddaughter but Bonnie still ended up going out with the other side. I guess we’ll have to wait until the fall to figure out what happened on that front. Are they going to be wherever Marcus and Silas are or somewhere completely different?

I think the cliffhanger was great. Bonnie and Damon, two people who don’t like each other are now in this new place together. Such a good closing shot. Unfortunately, they leave behind the devastated Gilbert siblings. So heartbreaking. Stefan lost both Damon and his BFF, Lexi. He’s definitely going to need Caroline to help him with his grief. Plus, it’s freakin’ tragic how Damon and Alaric are still separated. Finally, is it bad of me to hope the witchy brother and sister have disappeared forever?

I can definitely say this summer hiatus will be a painful one because I’m dying to know what happens next. In honor of Damon’s “demise,” here’s a special edition of “What They Said.” Because face it. The guy gets most of the show’s great lines. And this season finale was no different.

Episode: “Home”
Writers: “Caroline Dries & Brian Young

Damon (about Stefan): “We’ll bring him back.”

Damon: “My brother is over there.”
Bonnie: “I know that.”
Damon: “So is Alaric. And so is your grams.
Bonnie: “I know that, Damon.”
Enzo: “Ahem. Let’s not forget who else is at the top of the search and rescue list.”
Bonnie: “Enzo’s here.”
Damon: “Well if it’s not Mr. Butterfingers himself.”

Damon: “Class is in session. First assignment: anti-magic perimeter. Gilbert, what do you got?”
Jeremy: “I walked around Mystic Falls this morning to see where my hunter instincts disappeared.”
Damon: “Meaning what? Your biceps shrunk and your brain got smaller?”

Damon: “Donovan, you had one job.”

Elena: “We should be there.”
Damon: “Nope. You should not be. You are on witch duty because without crazy locks, no one’s rising from the dead. So, next order of business…mass murder. Quarterback?”

Matt: “We can’t blow up our hometown.”
Damon: “Says one of the only people left in this group who can actually live there.”

Damon: “And that’s where your mama comes in. She’ll convince them to gather somewhere inside. Meanwhile, these two geniuses at 7 o’clock will turn on the gas let it leak. We’ll have about ten minutes before anyone can smell it. You clear out. Boom! Travelers gone. Resurrection spell starts. Loved ones return. Good? Good? Class dismissed.”

Elena: “So you good?”
Damon: “Operation Massacre…assuming Donovan knows the difference between a water main and a gas main. Yeah, I’m good. Listen, I wanted to spare you the gory details and then I figured, well, ‘I’ll be lying and the whole point of saving the universe would be moot because you’d be pissed.’ So here it is. Project Kaboom needs someone to trigger the explosion, so to speak.”
Elena: “Okay…wait…you? No. Damon…no! Absolutely not. No!”
Damon: “Hmm…go with your first instinct, Damon. Lesson learned.”
Elena: “Look at me. Damon…do you see a future with me? Because that’s all I see.”
Damon: “Elena, I’ve seen it since the first second I laid eyes on you.”
Elena: “Then don’t go on a suicide mission.”
Damon: “Listen, technically, it’s only half a suicide mission because we’re gonna be bringing people back from the other side and I’m gonna be with them.”
Elena: “Well, then what if something goes wrong?”
Damon: “All right. Not to relive old fights. But…this is my choice and I need you to respect it.”
Elena: “That was a low blow.”
Damon: “Hey, I will make it back to you, I promise. (They kiss) I promise you.”

Elena (in car racing towards the Mystic Grill): “Damon…”
Damon: “I know. I know.”

Alaric: “Friendly advice…when you finally get the girl, don’t blow her up.”
Damon: “Good to see you too, buddy.”

Elena (crying): “You lied to me.”
Damon: “Even if I wanted to apologize,you couldn’t hear me. So I won’t.”
Elena: “Please don’t leave me.”
Damon: “I don’t have a choice, baby. You are by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my 173 years on this earth. But I get to die knowing that I was loved not just by anyone. By you, Elena Gilbert. It is the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never gonna get any better than this. I peaked. I love you, Elena.”
Elena: “Please…please come back to me.”
Damon: “Bye.”

Damon: “This place is going down, isn’t it?”
Bonnie: “It is. I’m sure there are a million people we’d both rather be with right now, but…” (they clasp hands)
Damon: “A couple thousand at most.”
Bonnie: “Do you think it’ll hurt?”
Damon: “I don’t kn–”

The Vampire Diaries will be back with season six this fall on the CW.
