'Vampire Diaries' team talks losing two characters, what's next

The only thing worse than losing a character is losing two characters … in the same episode. In tonight’s Vampire Diaries, fans said goodbye to two familiar faces—Liz Forbes and Jeremy Gilbert—both of whom have been around since season 1, back when magic was a mystery and The Originals didn’t exist. After weeks of build-up, Liz finally died of cancer, while Jeremy—in a twist—went off to live life as a vampire hunter. Elena, of course, thinks he’s at art school, but what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her (though it might hurt Alaric). We got some intel on both the characters’ goodbyes, as well as what’s next, from executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries, writer Brian Young, and the actors themselves, Marguerite MacIntyre (Liz Forbes) and Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert).

😢😢i’m still i’m still teary-eyed but at least at least they left it open ended left and I like what they with him being a vampire hunter I mean in the beginning he liked art it didn’t feel right that he was going to art school but the whole vampire thing makes sense I can live with that I just didn’t like how they left Bonnie left that open but I’m glad he’s going to come back guest appearances wedding series finale etc. Going to miss him and beremy me = he was the only thing that still keep me interested in the show Plus Bonnie going to miss him and my ship beremy and I can’t wait to see what he does next
