Out of all the teen dramas airing throughout the 2010s, The Vampire Diaries was one of the most popular. Although it ended in 2017, it’s still beloved by viewers and it remains a part of television pop culture. The series had an impressive run, and it managed to be unique from earlier supernatural shows that revolved around similar concepts.
Because of how iconic TVD has become, fans find themselves rewatching the show more than once. But rewatches are a big commitment, and it can be easier to replay the highlights. While TVD is adored as a whole, there are specific scenes in the series that fans can’t seem to get enough of.
