Can you believe that the eighth and final season of The Vampire Diaries is about to start this weekend? Eight seasons. EIGHT. SEASONS. It feels like a lifetime ago when we first saw Elena, Damon, Stefan, and the rest of the gang! Before Elena went to sleep for the next 60 years, before Damon lost his humanity (again), before Stefan lost his hero hair and got it back, fluffier and dreamier than ever, before Caroline had twins (!) with Matt (!!!), before Bonnie practiced witchcraft, before Jeremy became a vampire hunter, before Klaus and Silas and all the other big baddies came to town, before everyone got together with everyone, before all the drama and bloodshed, the Mystic Falls residents were just babies living normal high school lives. Take a walk with us down memory lane, all the way to the very first episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Back then, Elena was still grieving for her parents (and writing in her journal).

Elena and Stefan's love story was just starting to unfold.

Damon was the brooding bad boy that everyone had a crush on.

Jeremy was still into Vicki, Elena's ex's sister.

Caroline wasn't even a major character yet!

TL;DR. Babies. They were all BABIES.

They've come so far, lost so many loved ones along the way, and gone to hell and back a few times since their BB days. We can't wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds in the final season, premiering this Saturday, 3pm and 9pm on ETC.

What are you excited to see in TVD’s final season?
