He got the girl! They better not screw it up!

My oh my! These finales are taking my breath away. I won't lie I was a little bored mid season with Elena having a mid life crisis but these last few episodes have brought back all the feels. The twist and the turns are just Wow!! And Damon! Damon Damon!! How can he be so, what can I say just Damon!! His happy face is so rare and so lovely.
