The Contenders

11 When Stefan saw Lexi. 4x22

Their friendship is unlike any other. It's too bad she didn't get to stay long. - ElizabethClarkson

12 When Stefan killed Enzo


I literally sobbed when Stefan dropped Enzo’s heart on the ground. The look on his face as he falls to the ground dead destroyed me! And Bonnie’s pained screams absolutely broke my heart. Benzo was absolutely my favorite couple throughout the entire series and I cried so hard when Enzo died.

13 Elena Switched Her Humanity. 4x15

When Jeremy died, Elena couldn't handle the pain, she decided to switch off the pain by switching off her humanity. - ElizabethClarkson

Not only his death but Caroline's phone call to him and the fact that they just got married broke my heart.

He was fans favirote character... I don't know why they make his ending so sad

15 When Enzo Died

I cried too much during this scene

This was heartbreaking!

16 When Nadia Petrova dies
17 When Stefan died
18 When Rose died 2x12

I cried every time I saw this scene
Damon comforts Rose as she lies feverishly in bed. She remembers her old life, on a sunny hillside with horses all around, and dreams Damon is there. He's controlling her dream. Rose says she misses being human and mattering to people. She thanks him for making the pain go away. She says she's not afraid anymore. In bed, he gently lets go of her hand.
On the sunny hillside, Rose challenges him to a race to the trees. As she counts to three, back in bed he slowly takes out a stake and positions it over her heart. When she reaches 3, he drives it in.

19 When Jenna died
20 Sheila Bennett Dies. 1x14
21 When Damon killed Kai. 6x22
22 When Stefan Phoned Elena 3×1
23 When Katherine's parents and her sister died

Katherine was the most damaged character on the show. No one suffered or lost as much as she did. She didn't start out a villain, when her family died, that is what killed Katerina, not the rope. - Whitecoat

24 Damon Lets Elena Go, S5
25 When Elena & Damon Sleep Together while Stefan leaving his house 4×7
26 When mary-lou and Nora died destroying the pheonix stone.

I was so sad. When mary-lou is casting the spell and nora too is siphoning it reading the poem.
