30 Day Vampire Diaries-Meme, Day 14  
Back to work this week, and it was loooong. I was sick two days, and worked 13-15 hour days the others, so yeah, did not get to the memes at all. I'll be posting each day I've missed periodically throughout the weekend to catch up.

Day 14 - A scene that makes you sad/cry

Bonnie/Elena, Grams Death (Season 01, Episode 14, "Fool Me Once")

This scene was the first and only time (as of yet) that The Vampire Diaries has made me cry. Katerina Graham did her finest acting in this scene, and she was damn, damn good. As she frantically cried out for Elena, that's when I began to tear up. Grabbing for the spell book, desperately wanting to fix it, and finally completely breaking down in Elena's arms as she realizes she can't, gah, it was heartbreaking. For such a short-lived character, Jasmine Guy's Grams made an indelible impression and everything leading up to that moment was so well-laid out. When she died, it was a sucker-punch to the gut, and I cried.

This scene was heartbreaking and sad and was the catalyst for me not being a Bonnie fan for the rest of the season. This is when Bonnie's vendetta against Damon began and when, in my opinion, her personality and attitude changed from concerned and helpful best friend, to vengeful and spiteful up and coming witch. She had every right to feel angry and to isolate herself from Elena, but some of the ways she went about it left me cold.

Thankfully the Bonnie I liked before Grams' death has emerged again in season two and I like her again. Except of course for her whatever you want to call it with Luka the warlock. Just not feeling it.

I almost agree with all of this. When Bonnie went away, I still loved her, and I completely got her actions and stuff in her return in "Miss Mystic Falls," but it was her actions and behavior in "Blood Brothers" that began to turn the tide and by the end of the season, I was no longer liking her either. But as you said, we're seeing the awesome Bonnie from early s1 again (except for annoying Luka, yes!). So yay!

this scene was a tear jerker for me too =(
Katerina Grahm nailed this scene; the panic, the desperation, the grief, all of it was so real. On top of Kat's awesome acting, there was the fact that we lost a pretty kick-ass character </3

Graham was fantastic here. Easily her best moment in the series. She broke my heart, and that was on top of my upset over Grams!

This was my initial answer for this day. I don't know if I'll stick with it because I've thought of other scenes since...but I may come back to it. Kat Graham's acting is the best it's ever been in this scene--it felt so real, I agree. So sad.

She was so very real. I was quite, quite impressed by her in that. I did like your reasons for why you picked what you did; it made perfect sense.

Ah, yes, this was a very good scene. Kat was at her best here. I really felt for Bonnie.

Kat really was fantastic. The way she cries out Elena's name gets me every time. :(
