The Vampire Diaries was an amazing TV show that first aired in 2009 and which ended in 2017, after the release of eight seasons and 171 episodes. Initially, the show focused on a human girl named Elena and her friends - namely, Caroline and Bonnie - as well as the two brother vampires, Stefan and Damon Salvatore.
However, over the course of the series numerous other main characters were introduced, including the Originals - a family of Original vampires that included characters such as Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah among many others.
Immediately, the series, which was based on a series of books of the same name - was a great success so it comes as no surprise that it has won countless of award nominations and awards. The show has also resulted in a number of great actors such as Nina Dobrev becoming famous worldwide.
So, how well do you know The Vampire Diaries, its plot and its characters? Have you seen all of the eight seasons? If you have, then you should have no trouble passing this quiz with flying colors!
1Who returns Elena her diary after she leaves it at the cemetery?
When we first meet Elena in season 1 of the show she spends a lot of her time writing in her diary. That is, of course, understandable - she has just lost her parents and is going through a tough time and writing things down allows her to put her thoughts and feelings on paper. It is far better than bottling things up. At the start of the series, Elena usually wrote in her diary at the cemetery and it was there that she once forgot her diary. Can you recall who it was that returned her diary to her?
2Who bites Vicki?
In season 1 of The Vampire Diaries, Matt's sister Vicki gets bitten by what most inhabitants of Mystic Falls initially assume to be a wild animal. However, it doesn't take us long to realize that it was not an animal that bit Vicki but rather a vampire who is new in town. But can you recall who it was exactly that bit Vicki? If you are a true Vampire Diaries fan then we have no doubt that you'll get this one right.
3Who compels Jeremy to forget Vicki’s death?
Matt's sister Vicki was incredibly unlucky - not only did she get bitten by a vampire and eventually got turned into one in season 1 of the series, she was also eventually killed.

In fact, Jeremy was so distraught that Elena asked someone to compel Jeremy to forget Vicki's death. Can you remember who it was exactly that Elena asked to compel Jeremy?

It goes without saying that Damon and Stefan were not always vampires. Indeed, once upon a time they were humans. However, they were turned into vampires by a specific person. Can you recall who that person was? As you probably remember Stefan had no idea he would become a vampire whereas Damon knew this and actually wanted to become one. If you consider yourself a true Vampire Diaries fan - or alternatively, if you have a terrific memory - then you will ace this question.

Remember Damon's and Stefan's father Giuseppe Salvatore? He wasn't exactly the best father and was actually quite abusive.

After Damon and Stefan tried to help Katherine escape, Giuseppe shot his own sons. Later, he was accidentally killed by someone, can you recall by whom?
6Who initially shows ripper Stefan the path of love and humanity?
When we first meet Stefan he appears to be one of the few good vampires who refuse to feed on humans and instead satisfy their hunger with animal blood.

However, then he met someone who made him see that bloodshed was not necessary. Can you recall who it was?

In season 2 of the show Damon is bitten by Tyler. As you can probably remember, Tyler is a werewolf and a werewolf's bite is fatal for vampires.

At the end of season 1 of the series, Caroline is seriously injured when she gets into a car crash with Tyler and Matt.
