This is a sad day for people who like pretty vampires. It wasn’t totally surprising that Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) lost his life in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 12, “A View to a Kill,” but it was still hard for a lot of fans to take. 

Nate helped them grieve on Twitter. 

Even if you won’t miss Kol — he did threaten to chop Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) arms off — we still hope to see Nate’s name show up on some call sheets for The Originals spin-off. That’s what flashbacks are for!
