Who’s up for some last-minute Vampire Diaries finale scoop? TVLine caught up with Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev at The CW’s annual Upfront event to get their take on tonight’s death-defying episode (8/7c) — and it’s not looking good for either of their characters.

First thing’s first: How is Elena going to react to the news of Stefan’s (likely temporary) demise?
“She’s going to be upset, I’m not going to lie,” Dobrev told us. “She’s not going to be doing jumping jacks and high-fiving everyone. But you know Elena; she doesn’t take no for an answer, and she doesn’t let death get in the way of anything. … What is death? Whatever.”
But just because Elena is going to do whatever she can to save Stefan, that doesn’t mean everyone will make it out of the finale unscathed.
“You will see a couple familiar faces pop up tonight, and you’ll also see a few familiar faces disappear,” Dobrev teased. “We’re going to reset everything and make it so that once you die, you’re dead.”
That grim forecast aside, Wesley told us he’s actually loving Stefan’s deadly twist, even citing it as his favorite moment from the entire season.
“I thought it was awesome, I loved it,” he said. “I saw it at the table read and was like, ‘Oh s–t. Great job, guys.’ I was genuinely surprised.”
He also agreed with our admittedly far-reaching theory that The Originals‘ Davina should zip over to Mystic Falls and bring Stefan back, Mikael-style, saying simply, “Davina’s dope.”
That she is, Paul Wesley. That she is.
