Can’t wait until next Thursdays third season finale of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES following last night’s doozy of an episode?! Never fear, theTVaddict.com is here… Here that is with your first look at the May 10th episode ominously titled “The Departed” that promises to be quite the game-changer thanks to some life-altering decisions made by Jeremy, Caroline, Tyler, Bonnie and the brothers Salvatore. The whom leave Mystic Falls on a mission only to split up when Elena needs one of them. More first look photos of which — including flashbacks featuring Elena longing for simpler times when her parents and Aunt Jenna were still alive — can be found after the jump.

McQueen, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, Matt Davis and Joseph Morgan. Catch up on past episodes you may have missed for free online at clicktowatch.tv
