Storyline

Alaric has informed the ancestral council, which agreed to depose monsters-compromised sheriff and mayoress and resume the ruthless hunt for vampires. The Salvatore brother make a pact to accept whoever Elena chooses, but she explains to Matt she must, yet can't decide. Original Elijah is back and convinces Stefano and Elena, to Damon's horror, to let his family help them deal with Alaric and Klaus. Tyler convinces Caroline she must leave him and flee as his bloodline is doomed by Klaus's fate, but when Alaric finally gets to his storage-hidden coffin and strikes with the last ultimate stake, the results are utterly different, due to a switch no vampire notices yet. Written by KGF Vissers

Can't wait for next season
11 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OMG! That was a fantastic finale. can't wait for the 4th season premier. This episode was full of emotions and thrills. Finally Elena makes her choice and eye watering scenes. This was a Perfect finale after a little disappointing last episode. They could've done a much better job in previous episode than this after creating a negative character of Alaric.

I haven't read a single book of Vampire Diaries, so i can't compare it with anything but i surely love this show. They have done a brilliant job with the storyline and a great base for the next season and just hoping that they continue like this in the next season. On the whole 3rd season was brilliant with some Amazing starting 9 Episodes and last 5 episodes... and some bad episodes like 1912,Break on through...

If i have to pick "The Reckoning ,Heart of Darkness , The Departed " were the best episodes...... 10 stars to last episode and 9 star to season 3.
