The Vampire Diaries: Who Dies Next?


Not many shows have decided to kill off their main characters within the first season, at least in large amounts. Few have really taken the leap, but The Vampire Diaries really takes it to the next level by killing them off left, right, and centre, and with increasing frequency. It doesn’t look like they will be stopping anytime soon, so let’s make some predictions on who will be killed next.

It‘s a little bit of an exaggeration to say their killing off “main characters”. Damon, Stefan, and Elaina are never going to die, possibly not even the witch, but all of the other characters probably will end up in the dirt or mysteriously disappearing. This is not exaggerating. Every other character that’s been around since the first episode will most likely be dead at some point. You know this, by the way new characters keep being introduced to fill the gap of dead ones, but let’s stick to the near future deaths. So far, there is a pattern of killing family members: uncle Zack, the hot sister of the football quarterback, grandma witch. They seem to kill people who are played out in the story. That means anyone whose part in the overall story has come to a close is as good as dead. So my money is on the football jock Tyler Lockwood. He’s only shown up for a few minutes an episode lately and none of the main cast interact with him anymore. Plus, it seems like he might turn out to be a werewolf. That’s reason enough to kill him.
