The Top 10 Most Heartbreaking Times Your Fave TVD Characters Lost a Parent
It’s a general rule of thumb that parents are the ones responsible for protecting their children. And, with all of the crazy stuff happening in society today, this is a challenging task. But, throw in some vampires, ghosts, witches, and werewolves, it becomes nearly impossible!
The Vampire Diaries‘ town of Mystic Falls has a very long history, both of vampires, and of humans who attempt to protect the town against them. But, protecting the entire town, your family, and yourself is a tall order — not everyone succeeds. Sadly, something’s gotta give. Take a look to see the 10 most heartbreaking times your favorite TVD character lost their mom, dad or both:
When Elena & Jeremy's parents died in a car crash.
Everyone knows that when you reach a certain age, hanging out with your parents just isn't cool. So, we totally understand why Elena ditched 'Family Night' to go hang out with some friends at a party. Fortunately, her parents didn't hold it against her — they even went to pick her up when the party became too much for her to handle.
As the three were driving home, the car went over the bridge and into the water! Having run into Elena earlier in the night, Stefan was lurking nearby and saw the whole thing. He heroically jumped in to save the family. Still conscious, Elena's father insisted that Stefan save his daughter first. When Stefan agreed and then went back to the sinking car moments later, it was too late. Elena's parents had succumb to the water, leaving her and her younger brother, Jeremy, in the care of their Aunt Jenna.
