19 Shocking Vampire Diaries Deaths
Who will be back for The Vampire Diaries Season 6?
The first major character and the first of Jeremy's girlfriends to die. Her death set the tone for the rest of the series and made us realize that no one was safe.
Stefan's oldest and best friend. Too bad she was there when Damon needed someone to get the Founder's Council off of his undead trail. She came and she went and her death has been felt throughout the entire series.
The first of the parental characters to go, but unfortunately not the last person Bonnie would lose. She went out as only a witch could do -- on an overdose of magic.
Katherine was not messing around when she came to town and killed Caroline just to send a message! Luckily for us Caroline came back to be one of the most likable vampires ever.
Another character who we started to get to know and then poof she was gone. At least before departing she showed us a different side of Damon and illuminated on the dangers of werewolf venom.
