The Vampire Diaries: 12 Popular Couples Ranked From Worst To Best
The Vampire Diaries has become one of the most watched shows on The CW network. The series first aired back in 2009 and has now won numerous awards, nominations, and even earned a spin-off series. Sadly, it came to an end after the series finale on March 10, 2017. The Vampire Diaries enjoyed eight successful seasons and surprisingly managed to thrive even after lead actress Nina Dobrev left the show. Because the show was so fast moving, fans saw a lot of characters come and go, and plenty of relationships — some good, some bad. Here’s a definitive ranking of the 12 most popular couples on the series from worst to best!
12. The Salvatore Brothers and Katherine Pierce
We’re pretty sure not a single fan would be surprised to see the love triangle between Damon, Stefan and Katherine Pierce land in the worst ranked spot on this list. The relationship started long before either Damon or Stefan became vampires; in fact, she’s the one who turned them both into vampires and pitted them against each other. She was no doubt one of the biggest villains in the entire series and had been manipulating both Stefan and Damon from day one when she started a romantic relationship with them both. She later claimed to have only loved Stefan and that she never loved Damon which makes her relationship with them even worse!
11. Caroline Forbes and Alaric Saltzman
This relationship was extremely weird which is why it lands in one of the worst spots on this list. For the majority of the show, their relationship was completely platonic. In fact, they never even really had a close relationship at all with hardly any one-on-one moments together. He was her teacher and she was his student. But when Alaric’s former fiancee, Jo died and her unborn twins were transferred into Caroline’s womb, Alaric ended up falling for her. Caroline helped Alaric raise the twins and took on a motherly role to them. During a flash forward in season seven, they were engaged, but their relationship didn’t last long because Caroline was still in love with Stefan. She only maintained a relationship with Alaric for their twins.
