The clock is ticking down on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.
And the same can be said for the life of Bonnie Bennett.
As loyal viewers of this long-time CW drama know all too well, this beloved witch seemingly only has a few days left to live.
That is, unless she agrees to help The Armory open its vault and accept the help this shady organization is supposedly willing to give her in return.
Where is all this headed?
Viewers will fine out on Friday, May 13 when The Vampire Diaries bids farewell for the summer with its Season 6 finale.
To whet our collective appetites for what's on tap, however, The CW has released the following synopsis, which brings Caroline's kids into the picture in very unexpected fashion:
Despite their best efforts to help Bonnie (Kat Graham) through the harrowing predicament she now faces, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Caroline (Candice King) realize their options are running out and drastic measures need to be taken.
With their only chance of saving their friend lying inside the Armory, Stefan (Paul Wesley) breaks the news to Caroline that they may need help from an unlikely source – her and Alaric’s twin daughters.
Elsewhere, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) keeps Bonnie preoccupied by bringing her back to their cabin but when his plan takes an unexpected turn, it’ll be up to Damon to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his closest friends.
The CW has already renewed The Vampire Diaries for Season 8, though there's a strong possibility that the series will conclude next year.
Kat Graham has already said she'll leave the series afterward and Ian Somerhalder has had to walk back his own comment that said Season 8 would be the drama's swan song.
The network is yet to make an official announcement.
But the show was moved to Friday nights this spring. Its ratings have dropped considerably. Graham will soon leave. Nina Dobrev is already gone.
We still watch The Vampire Diaries online or on television sometimes, but its best days are clearly behind it.
Give us 13 episodes in 2016-2017 and give us a proper chance to say goodbye, CW. That's all we ask.
