She'll have her cake — and eat it too! Nina Dobrev shared several flashback photos from her time on The Vampire Diaries ahead of her final episode on Thursday, May 14. But even more, she shared with her devoted fans what exactly went down after filming her last scene ever. (Hint: Food fight!)
Dobrev was caught off guard when her TVD family snuck up behind her with cake and silly string while on set with ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. She screamed, got cake in the face — and even fought back!
"Because I deserved it. #Caked," the 26-year-old captioned a video of the prank. "6 years of pranks… It was bound to bite me (No pun intended) in the ass eventually. #caked #lastday."
She added: "But I didn't go out without putting up a fight. If I was gonna go down, I wasn't going to go down alone. @iansomerhalder."
At the time, Dobrev and Somerhalder (spoiler alert!) were finishing up their final Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore scene. They danced, they kissed, and they undoubtedly made thousands of Delena fans cry at home.
Dobrev's stunning violet dress may have needed a trip to the dry cleaners after the mess, but the actress didn't seem to mind. Before saying goodbye to Mystic Falls for good, she also gave her costars and crew personalized clapboards. Each had her signature, her nickname "Looch," and a dedication to TVD's late camera assistant Sarah Jones, who died in a train accident while working on the film Midnight Rider in February 2014.
"We've been a family for 6 years, and since this is a Vampire Family our lifetime has no limit," Dobrev had inscribed on each. "You will forever be in my heart. Fangs for the memories."
