So... that happened.

Viewers had been counting down the days untilĀ The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 22 partly because it served as a season finale and they knew there would be a major cliffhanger, of course.

But mostly because they also knew this would be Nina Dobrev's final ever appearance on the series.

Talk had circulated since the star made her announcement, with fans wondering whether TVD would kill Elena off or send her packing from Mystic Falls.

Also: just how many boxes of tissues would we need as we witnessed these events.

Without giving anything away, let's just say Elena's departure was satisfying and sentimental, touching and well done.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 22 Quotes

[to Caroline] Yesterday you told me that you made a list of all the ways that loving me has ruined your life, and I get it. I haven't made it easy on you, but I made a list too. Of all the ways that loving you has changed mine. You were by my side when I needed a friend. You made me laugh, you made me dance. You told me that I would find love again, and I understand if you need time to heal and to live your life without me. I understand if I have to wait for you. And I will. I'll wait. And when you're ready for me, I will be ready for you.

Stefan

[to Kai] One thing you're not going to do, you're not going to mess with me. I am in a very volatile place right now and I will start beheading people that I don't like, starting with you, if she doesn't wake up.

Damon
