The Vampire Diaries never fails to leave our mouths agape, but we were none so shocked as when two characters – one near to our heart, the other, not so much – were killed off in one fell swoop at the end of the Season 2.
In Season 2, Episode 21, “The Sun Also Rises", baddie Klaus turned our beloved Aunt Jenna into a vampire as part of his plan to break the hybrid curse. But Jenna wasn’t a fanged female for long – she died shortly after while trying to selflessly save Elena. In the same episode, Elena’s biological father, the ever-fickle John Gilbert, sacrificed himself for his daughter/niece as well (and kind of won our hearts in the process).
We’re totes used to death and destruction in Mystic Falls, but even we were all kinds of shocked when both the J’s bit the dust in one eppy. And we’re not alone: the John-Jenna massacre was so jaw-dropping that it’s in the running to land on E!’s Top 10 TV OMG Moments poll – but only with your help!
We’ll forever miss John and Jenna (er, OK, at least Jenna), but the least we can do is pay homage to the J’s-that-were by voting for The Vampire Diaries over at E!. And in a town where anything’s possible – including deceased characters rising from the dead – it couldn’t hurt to show TVD producers just how much we miss them.
Voting ends Thursday, Dec. 29 at 10 p.m. PST.
