15 Behind-The-Scenes Secrets About 'The Vampire Diaries'

The Vampire Diaries is ending after eight seasons. We're going to say goodbye to Mystic Falls and our favorite vampires, werewolves, witches and all the other supernatural beings! *sobs while eating ice cream out of the tub and rewatching episodes of TVD* Who are going to be the new villains in Season 8?! Is Elena coming back?! Will we get a Delena reunion?! There are so many questions we need answered in the last season!

#1 The fans weren't actually supposed to see Damon and Elena together until much later! The showrunner wanted to make the fans wait three or four seasons! She never wanted human Elena to be with Damon but she gave in to the fans!

We already waited so long! I can't believe they wanted to keep us in the dark! #DelenaForever

#2 In Season 2, Isobel's cell phone number (919-399-2507) was shown on screen and it was an active number! If fans called the number, they got to listen to a recorded message from the cast!
