The Vampire Diaries doesn't simply return with a new episode on Thursday, January 23.
It returns with the show's 100th episode, a milestone for any series and one The Vampire Diaries cast celebrated a few weeks ago with a party in Atlanta.
TV Fanatic was on hand for the event and we got some time with Nina Dobrev on the red carpet.
The actress was in a celebratory and reflective mood, expressing shock and gratitude over all the time she has spent on the series. As for her favorite scene as Elena? Well, it coincides with her favorite scene as Katherine.
