Elena's baby brother is all grown up and going to art school! Let's take a look at Jeremy Gilbert's best moments now before we bid him a fond farewell.
Hey, at least he isn't dying this time.
Smartass Jeremy Gilbert
Jeremy Gilbert is the smartass kid brother everyone secretly wishes they had. Even at his absolute worst, Elena still loves him.
Remember when Jeremy was just a stoner in love with Vicki Donovan? He's certainly come a long way since then.
Jeremy Gilbert cried. A lot. A LOT. Maybe it was the pot. Maybe it was the fact that absolutely everyone he loved kept dying on him. We may never know.
Jeremy and Anna
After Damon turned his stoner girlfriend into a vampire and Stefan had to kill her to save his life, Jeremy met another vampire who stole his heart. Can we really blame him for falling in love with Anna? No, no we cannot.
Jeremy Wakes Up
Okay, Jeremy DID try to kill himself so that he could become a vampire to be with Anna forever only to discover (eventually) that his mission on Earth was very, very different.
Badass Jeremy Gilbert
No one really believed it possible but even before he became a hunter and took up the crossbow, Jeremy Gilbert had it in him to be a badass.
