Nina Dobrev and Michael Trevino, who are both leaving The Vampire Diaries after season 6, commemorated their exits in the cutest way possible on Wednesday night: with a helium-voiced sayonara.
Dobrev, 26, who announced her departure on Instagram earlier this month, also posted a Polaroid-style shot of her hugging her costar, 30, whom she tagged as part of her "#TVDFamily."

Elena and Stefan, together forever.
Nina Dobrev's time on The Vampire Diaries is quickly coming to a close, and on Monday she reached a bittersweet milestone – her final scene with costar Paul Wesley.
Dobrev, 26, and Wesley, 32 – who goes by @paulwesley on Twitter and @paulvedere on Instagram – have been the show's leads through six seasons. With a seventh season on the way, Dobrev has announced she is leaving (as is Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler Lockwood) and officially commemorated the end of the Stelena era with a sweet Instagram post.

Nina Dobrev isn't long for Mystic Falls.
The original cast member of The CW's The Vampire Diaries confirmed Monday via her Instagram account that she'll depart the show after this season.
Underneath a picture of Dobrev, 26, with TVD creator and showrunner Julie Plec, the actress wrote, "I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime."

After six years starring as Damon on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder moved behind the camera for the very first time to direct Thursday's episode.
Having just learned that his mother may have actually been alive (or, more accurately, undead) for the past 100-plus years, Damon enters "The Downward Spiral" with a whole new set of abandonment issues.
In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, the actor, 36, opens up about what it was like to direct for the very first time (which, funnily enough, segued into musings about the inevitable march of time), what's coming up for Delena (and even Bamon) and his ideal ending for The Vampire Diaries.

Thursday's Vampire Diaries may be called "Stay," but for Steven R. McQueen, it's time to go.
The episode marks McQueen's final episode as Jeremy Gilbert, a role he's played since the TVD pilot in 2009. The episode sees Jeremy and his sister Elena (Nina Dobrev) reminiscing before he hits the road, so it only seems appropriate that McQueen, 26, tells PEOPLE some of his standout memories from his six-season run.

The Vampire Diaries' midseason premiere, "Woke Up with a Monster," certainly gave fans a lot of options as to who might meet an impending and untimely end in the near future.
As the series begins its sprint to the season finale, characters both beloved and brand new stared down death.
Star Paul Wesley directed the episode, which picked up directly after Kai (Chris Wood) abducted Elena (Nina Dobrev) and as Caroline (Candice Accola) struggled to accept her mother's cancer diagnosis. Even amid those merciless circumstances, Elena and Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) weren't the only folks in Mystic Falls whose lives were in peril.
But who looks most likely to say goodbye sooner rather than later?

When we last left the denizens of Mystic Falls, many of them were in mortal (or immortal) peril. Obviously.
Elena (Nina Dobrev) was kidnapped by Kai (Chris Wood), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) has vowed to ruin Stefan's life, and Matt (Zach Roerig) has been roped into helping him. Meanwhile, Caroline's (Candice Accola) mother has an inoperable brain tumor that vampire blood can't cure.
To find out whether our intrepid heroes will ever experience any modicum of happiness, The Vampire Diaries returns from its midseason hiatus on Thursday, with Paul Wesley at the helm as director.
