29 Epic Elena Gilbert Moments: Say It Isn't So, Nina Dobrev!

at .

We're all still reeling from the news that Nina Dobrev is leaving The Vampire Diaries. In a statement released yesterday on the star's Intagram account, she thanked fans for an amazing six seasons but said it's time to move on. 

What will that mean for the actress who gave us Elena Gilbert? We're not sure, yet, but we're certain only good things are in her future.

As for the rest of us, however, we'll be over here crying with faces not nearly as pretty as Elena Gilbert's cry face. Or rejoicing. Some fans seem quite split on the news of Dobrev's departure.

Regardless, let's take a look at 29 Epic Elena Gilbert moments to remember why we fell in love with Dobrev, doppelgangers, and waged an all-out war between Delena and Stelena shippers worldwide.

How will Elena Gilbert depart The Vampire Diaries Season 6? We're not sure, but if history is any indication, it will be nothing short of epic.

We've seen characters die, turn into ghosts, and come back to life. We've seen magical rings which turn those who wear them slightly crazy. (Okay, a lot crazy.) We've seen vampires transition and refuse to transition. 

And then we lost Liz Forbes to an actual medical illness which vampire blood couldn't cure. 

The possibilities for Elena Gilbert's end are, well, endless. Sound off, TV Fanatics, how do YOU want to see her go? And while you're there in the comments, go ahead and tell us your favorite Elena Gilbert moment!

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 18 airs Thursday, April 16th, at  8/7c on The CW, but you can relive your favorite Elena Gilbert moments when you watch The Vampire Diaries online right here at TV Fanatic!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You are by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my 173 years on this earth.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
