Klaus may be out of the game but with Alaric still on the hunt, anything can happen in the season's finale, The Departed.
When Klaus first came to Mystic Falls he hit the small town like a hurricane but now, there's something worse; it can't be killed, it won't show mercy and its name is Alaric.
It was one hundred years ago when a councillor was murdered in Mystic Falls but after a century of time, history may be repeating itself and Alaric may be at the centre of it.
After waking up alive and in prison, Alaric is questioned by Sheriff Liz who suspects he may have something to do with the latest string of murders.
In the wake of Isobel's return, Rick and Elena's long buried feelings are brought to the surface while they try to determine if she is an ally or an enemy.
Picking up in the moments following from the last episode, Isobel is standing at Elena's door while both Elena and Jenna pick their jaws up from off the floor.
