Saddest Vampire Diaries Moment

The Top Ten

1 Elena's Slumber Goodbyes. 6x22

Elena is the best character on the show. I literally cannot stop crying every time I see this. How do you watch TVD without Elena?

Kai casts a spell linking Elena and Bonnie's lives, rendering Elena unconscious while Bonnie is alive. In a series of visions or dreams, Elena and her friends and family say their goodbye.

. The blast from the past had tears rolling down my cheeks

I remember watching this Episode for the first time I cried So hard Elena was my 2nd Favorite Character On the show so I was Deeply saddened

2 When Stefan and Elena Broke Up, for Real. 2x06

I really voted for this one because the look on Stefan' s face broke my heart

When Stefan and Elena broke up because of Katherine, it was so painful.

I loved the and they were goals and the best couple on T.V.. End of discussion.

I love them stefan is better than damien

3 Aunt Jenna's Funeral. 2x21

Jenna's amazing. I hated Katherine when I saw that she selfishly allowed Jenna to die. Yet Katherine gets all the credit. People sympathize with her. It is so unreasonable.

My eyes were bawling out and I sobbed out loudly, she didn't deserve this to happen to her, and this is shown by how her heart remained pure even when she died. All the factors that lead up to death such as her relationship with Elena and Jeremy, not to mention John's monologue and the music in the background. This was the saddest moment pre-season four in my opinion.

I loved her it was so sad when she died.

This is so sad!

4 When Caroline's Dad Died. 3x13

Caroline's dad didn't want to be a vampire so he chose to die instead.

I cried so much, Caroline is so sweet and didn’t deserve this

5 When Alaric Died. 3x20

Everyone loved Alaric, for what he did for Elena and Jeremy by taking them in. And when he died! The scene became more painful when they all said their goodbyes

This was the saddest thing ever. Their goodbyes made me cry.

I wish he didn't die he was Elena's last parental figure.

I literally wouldn't stop crying. I felt like a huge piece of my heart was yanked out. When Damon sat there drinking with tears rolling down his eyes, I literally thought a family member died. ah I hate the fact that all of this is over😭😭😭

6 When Elena Died. 3x22

Stefan was the one who saved her and Matt. Elena sacrificing herself, Stefan respecting her choice. Then she became a Vampire.

The actual saddest

7 When Damon Went to Alaric's Grave. 4x02

The saddest moment EVER! I cried, and I don't cry in movies. When Damon was talking and Alaric was listening and Damon tried making jokes to hide his grief. :'(

Damon and Ric's friendship is extraordinary. And when Ric died, I know that a part of Damon just died, too.

This was the saddest moment for me. I almost cried man and I don't cry

NO... This was so sad. And all the time Damon was talking Alaric was there listening.

8 When Liz Forbes Died. 6x14 (Stay)

She was such an amazing character, and the fact that she was surrounded by the supernatural yet still died from natural sad.

Liz Forbes (Caroline's mom) dies of glioblastoma in this episode.

When Caroline is a kid and asks her Mom if she is going to die.

Always my number 1. I cried like a baby

9 When Stefan Died 8x16

this is the saddest scene! I cried myself to sleep so I basically cried for 3 hours and then I woke up the next morning crying like why couldn't they just have Matt Donovan hold katherine!

even though I have always loved Damon so much more than Stefan and at times we was really boring. I wish they didn't kill him off. him and Caroline should have had a future together

This was the saddest episode ever. whenever I need to cry I literally go back and watch this episode because it’s so sad. I don’t know how it’s only ranked 13th

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

10 When Damon ''Died''. 5x22

It's like a part of everyone died! It's a promise from seasons past (season 3) broken! Died for his brother! Unbelievable!

Watching damon talk to elena without her knowing it made me break down

This scene absolutely ruined me, saddest moment ever!

Seriously my saddest moment. I cried for a long time.

The Contenders

11 When Stefan Killed Enzo

The Worst tragedy which I never expected. After Stefan(Humanity-Off) ripped Enzo;s heart... I was hoping that this has to be someone's dream. But, its not the case.

Benzo was the best couple on the show, so pure with so much development
Bonnie and enzo deserved better and every time I watch this scene I cry.

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.

This was so sad I started to hate stefan but he was in his ripper phase so I couldn't blame him. I definitely cried.

12 When Damon Cries and Lets Go of His Brother 8x16

Damon doesn't seem to get emotional so when he did it was heartbreaking.

Never seen Damon cry
When he says I love you little brother

13 When Stefan Saw Lexi. 4x22

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

They was so happy

14 Elena Switched Her Humanity. 4x15

It broke my heart when Jeremy died. Seeing Elena so sad made me cry so much. And when Elena burnt down the house it was probably the saddest thing ever.

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

She was so hurt by jeremys death and named all the people she loved that died

Nina’s acting was honestly incredible in this scene. I cry every time.

15 When Damon Let Elena Go, 5x22

Literally made me cry for hours, such an emotional scene.

16 When Caroline Phoned Stefan. 8x16

This for my friend and I was one of the most sad moments in this episode. When Caroline phones Stefan and tells him how much she loves him and that she understands that he sacrificed himself for his brother, right before he dies. Currently crying while writing this.

Her confessing all her love and care for him was heart wretching

17 When Enzo Died

I cried too much during this scene

This was heartbreaking!

At the start I didn't like and I but I loved how happy him and Bonnie were together and I grew to love him but after he died I couldn't watch VD for weeks after

18 When Jeremy Died

This was absolutely heartbreaking

It was heartbreaking. jeremy was always struggling

19 When Bonnie Dies 5x4

No matter how many times I watch this show, Bonnies death always has tears rolling down my cheeks. I don’t know, this whole show makes me so emotional but Bonnies death brings the water works.

Bonnie died was the most emotional part for me

So sad cried for so long (the funeral by the way)

Bonnie deserves better :,(

20 When Damon Confessed His Love for Elena but Had to Compel Her. 2x8

I feel for young isolated Damon. This kind sir deserved better, as well as what he went through with the Augustine alone. Katherine and elana both chose Stefan and as a 4th devorced single 48 year old gramdma I know how it feels to not be the one, you see.. my ex Albert was an optician and e claimed my eyes weren’t pretty enough for his effection he told me this and left me after my first kid... clemon, and then my other ex husband bob left me for my mum when he got me pregnant with my son.. Johnathan. And then when my otherrr ex Timathy devorced me after we had our little girl wang He left me for my other daughter clemon who at the time was 19. So I know what it’s like to never be the one

At first I hated Damon but then as I kept watching the show,I began loving him so much.But what really had my tears run down like a river is when both Katherine and Elena chose Stefan over Damon,when he was always the one who loved them but didn't get it back.And when he confessed it to Elena,he had to compel her so she wouldn't remember him saying it,it was one of the saddest moments for me..

This was so touching

It’s so so sad

21 When Klaus Had to Give Up on Caroline

He had never give up on her, he just let her realize her wishes for life and he decided to give her the choice to go to him when she is ready. He never gave up on her

I was really rooting for these two

22 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.

I was so sad, she deserved better.

23 When Stefan is Reunited with Lexi in the after life 8x16

He was finally at peace

24 When Nadia Petrova Dies
25 When everyone sees the dead people they miss 8x16


It’s heartbreaking seeing how happy they are to see them

I was crying that entire episode. When all the characters got to see their loved ones who died, 😭
