'Vampire Diaries' finale: Behind the scenes on 'Founder's Day'

vampire-diaries-finale-stefan-damon-thumb copy.jpgThe CW promises that the season finale of "The Vampire Diaries" will serve up "chaos, destruction and death." Founder's Day sounds like a blast!

"There's a lot of stuff that happens and it's fun," Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon, tells Zap2it's KorbiTV. "It took a long time to shoot and there are eight cliffhangers. I think people are going to like it. I hope."

Eight cliffhangers! Well, Isobel planted a seed in the last episode and Stefan is keeping a close eye on Damon and Elena. Meanwhile, last minute preparations for the Founder's Day festivities are under way, but so is Johnathan Gilbert's plan (which can't be good). Can Damon and Alaric stop him in his tracks? And has Bonnie's spellbinding deception been discovered?

Spoiler alert!

The season finale of "The Vampire Diaries" airs Thursday, May 13 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
