Exclusive Video: Watch CW's Insanely Sad Goodbye Tribute to The Vampire Diaries' Jeremy Gilbert

See some of his best moments

Robyn Ross

The Vampire Diaries' Jeremy Gilbert is leaving Mystic Falls - for good - but not without a proper goodbye.

On Thursday's episode, the one-time spiky-haired, brooding younger brother-turned-loyal, buff vampire hunter takes off for art school. Off-camera, Steven R. McQueen, who's been with the show since its 2009 premiere, is exiting the series. "[He's] all grown-up and ready to move on," executive producer Julie Plec told TVGuide.com last month. "We got him a cake and dressed as superheroes and gave him a big party!"
