The Vampire Diaries will be hitting a major milestone on Thursday, January 23, as our favorite supernatural drama will be airing its 100th episode! (Can you believe how fast time flies?!) We’ve been waiting on pins and needles to see what happens in the highly-anticipated installment — so much so that we’re planning a viewing party with all of our friends!

Sadly, Paul Wesley won’t be able to attend, because the TVD heartthrob is stuck in the blizzard in NYC! The 31-year-old actor was photographed braving the snow on January 21, bundling up in a peacoat, a scarf, and his favorite black beanie.

Paul touched down in NYC on January 19 despite the oncoming storm. “40 degrees but I still happily keep coming back,” he wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the dreary looking city. The vacation comes just weeks after Paul soaked up the sun in Australia, where he celebrated Christmas with his girlfriend, Phoebe Tonkin.

While we’re sure Paul’s just as excited as we are to watch the 100th episode, he recently shared his all-time favorite ep while chatting with E! News. 

“Definitely my favorite episode would be the flashback to the 1920s,” he gushed, referring to Season 3’s “The End of the Affair.” “Stefan as a ripper, his friendship with Klaus, and all of those diabolical things that he did.”

Paul might like Stefan’s “diabolical” side, but he’s truly a softie deep down inside. “[My favorite scene is] when Elena touched Stefan’s face for the first time and he showed her his veins (Season 1). It was this beautiful moment of opening up to her.”

Aww, we always knew he was a romantic!


Are you as excited as we are for
TVD’s 100th episode? What do you think is going to happen?
