We are only a few weeks away from the Vampire Diaries season 3 finale, "The Departed," and The CW has just released the very first photos associated with that episode. They don't give away all that much about the plot or the various twists we might expect, but the pictures do show us something new: The Gilbert family. Parents and all.

Keep reading to check out these Vampire Diaries season 3 finale photos!

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


WARNING: Despite the non-spoilery nature of the photos which follow, one might still interpret this article as being laden with Vampire Diaries spoilers. If that is the case, go now. Save yourself!

Still here? Good.

"The Departed" features a series of flashbacks in which Elena remembers the simpler times before her parents' fateful and fatal plunge off the Wickery Bridge. Check out the photo below to get your first look at the Gilbert parents.

We don't know how much of a role Grayson and Miranda Gilbert (guest stars Jason MacDonald and Erin Beute) will play in the Vampire Diaries season 3 finale, but we know what they look like now. At least, we know what they look like before the big drowning scene. Rumors from the Vampire Diaries set indicate that we may see that look as well.

Don't believe me? Then check this out:

Elsewhere in the season 3 finale, Jeremy, Caroline and Tyler all make life-changing decisions, Stefan and Damon leave Mystic Falls on a mission until Elena needs one of them to return, and Bonnie makes a secret deal that could have heartbreaking consequences.

Also, it's very likely that people will die. That's not a spoiler, by the way. It's just what happens in Vampire Diaries season finales.

Don't miss the Vampire Diaries finale -- set yourself a reminder on the free BuddyTV Guide App.

The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale, "The Departed," will air on Thursday, May 10 at 8pm on The CW.
