It's not easy saying goodbye to a TV show. "The Vampire Diaries" fans have mixed emotions with the upcoming Series Finale. While many of them say it is time for the show to end, it doesn't make watching the last episodes easy. Apparently it wasn't easy filming the final episodes, either. Paul Wesley says that he cried filming the last scenes for the show and explains why that was.

Saying goodbye to the characters of 'The Vampire Diaries'

The main reason Wesley was upset was that saying goodbye to the characters in the show become real. He stood opposite Nina Dobrev and realized that this was the last time the two of them would be there on the same set in the same characters.

It's like saying goodbye to a friend that you know you will never see again. To make it harder for Wesley, the two characters they play -- Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert -- were epic loves. They were the most important characters on the show at one point and have been on a major journey together.

Paul Wesley's breakout role

Another reason why the final scenes were so important was that Wesley was saying goodbye to his breakout character. While he had been on TV shows in the past, such as "Army Wives," he hadn't had a series regular role. From the very beginning, Stefan was an integral part of the show. There wouldn't have been "TVD" without him and Wesley was able to bring life to the character.

The first time characters reconnect

The final scenes in "TVD" aren't just going to be the last moments for Stefan and Elena. This is the first time the two characters will reconnect. After Elena was turned into a vampire, she was drawn towards Damon. Even after her sire link was broken, she decided to follow her heart and be with him.

Stefan and Elena had a chance to talk towards the end of season 4, but the two were never really the same. Now that the two are human, there is a chance that they could find their way back to each other or just reminisce on some of the things that have happened.

"The Vampire Diaries" series finale airs in two weeks. There isn't long left to say goodbye to the characters and the final scenes will be emotional. Even Wesley couldn't help but shed a few tears.
