We’re still not over “The Vampire Diaries” series finale or any of the beautiful scenes that brought tears to our eyes. From Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) reunion with her family to the ghost of loved ones past watching over Mystic Falls to Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline’s (Candice King) tearful goodbye, the finale was basically a rollercoaster of emotions and nostalgia.

The most contentious decision executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson made in the finale, however, was the one to kill off Stefan Salvatore in a final, epic moment of sacrifice.

Steroline fans were devastated, Stelena fans felt like they got their hearts ripped right out of their chests and Defan fans … well they’re probably still huddled in a corner somewhere sorting themselves out. This may be an unpopular opinion, but while Stefan’s death was certainly heartbreaking, it was also the perfect choice for the end of the series.
