‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 3 Episode 22 ‘The Departed’ Preview: A Recurring Character Returns

The Vampire Diaries season 3 continues next week with the finale, episode 22, “The Departed,” and they’re going to need all the help they can get to deal with Alaric. Will it come from an unexpected source?

Extended Vampire Diaries Season 3 Finale “The Departed” Promo

A shorter promo aired after this week’s “Before Sunset,” but a longer promo is now online teasing more of what’s coming in the final episode of the third season. The drama and danger is going to continue, but the previews still don’t reveal what’s going on with Elena. Why did she collapse at the end of episode 21? Could a character who’s returning in this episode have any answers for them?

The extended The Vampire Diaries season 3 episode 22 promo for the finale, “The Departed” (below) has one longer line from Stefan, an extended look at Alaric versus Damon, and shows the return of a character many have been hoping to see again this season. First, there’s Stefan’s line: “I will do everything in my power to make sure we all come back.” “In my power” was not in the shorter promo, and you do have to wonder if that part of his line is foretelling anything that will happen while they’re away from Mystic Falls.

Meanwhile, Damon’s going to be facing Alaric, who wants to know where Klaus is, and not only is Alaric going to have his arm around his neck, a new clip shows Alaric kicking Damon. This doesn’t look like it’s going to be a fun episode for Damon. Will that turn around with Elena choosing him perhaps in the end? She will be making her choice in this episode, and it could go either way.

The extended preview also shows the return of Elijah. He tells them, “I leave it to you to decide whether to trust me or not.” Can they trust Elijah? Should they trust him? What will he have to say about their bloodline? Will he verify what Klaus said or will he tell them someone else is responsible for their bloodline? Will he know anything about why Elena collapsed? Will he have information that could help them?

Finally, the new promo also shows Rebekah turning to watch as the car goes over the bridge in the end after Elena yells at Matt to watch out. She’s been shown to have a soft spot for Matt. Will that come back in this scene?

What do you think of the extended The Vampire Diaries season 3 episode 22 preview for the finale, “The Departed”?
