When Is 'The Vampire Diaries' Fall Finale? Your Favorite CW Characters React To The Dates

Are we really talking about finales already? I feel like it was just last week that Damon returned from 1994 on The Vampire Diaries — OH WAIT, that was last Thursday. Apparently time doesn't stop when you're trapped in a supernatural prison. On Monday night, The CW announced its series' fall finale dates and the Vampire Diaries Season 6 midseason finale will air on Dec. 11, with its fellow series airing their fall finales in and around the same week. Talk about having a blue Christmas, you feel me?

I feel like I'm about to break into that Chantal Kreviazuk song, "Time," from the Laguna Beach Season 2 graduation episode. Sure, we still have a little over a month before our favorite TV series go on hiatus for the holidays — but it just feels like too much too soon. (Like Christmas decorations already going up in retail stores.) How will we survive with these dates looming the near future? How can I be expected to be excited for the holidays when the prospect of losing Jane The Virgin's perfect telenovela-inspired drama? Life can be so hard sometimes.

So, what does The CW's Fall finale schedule look like? There will be no rest for the weary and resistant, that's for sure, and we'll be ugly-crying forever.

The First To Go: The Originals — Dec. 8

It's OK, Klaus. We feel your pain tenfold.

We only knew you for a short time, but it hurts so much.

Why, CW, why must you do this to me?
