The Vampire Diaries: 10 Unpopular Opinions (According To Reddit)

7. Elena Should Have Died In Season 6

While a large portion of fans believe that the show hadn't been the same since Elena Dobrev exited in season 6, there was a small minority who had a different opinion. In fact, they had a different vision for the show altogether. Instead of placing her under a sleeping curse, some have suggested that maybe Elena should have died.

After she got involved with Damon, a few fans felt like she lost so much function and value on the show. They believe that the whole Stelena/Delena love triangle was dragged out as well as the goings-on with Damon. One user even said that her death would have "cut a lot of contrivedness of season 7 and 8."
