Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) have seen more heartbreak on The Vampire Diaries than any couple should ever have to endure.

From Jeremy cheating on Bonnie with his (ghost) ex-girlfriend, to Bonnie bringing Jeremy back to life only to die from the effort of the spell, to Bonnie becoming a ghost and then dying for real as the Other Side crumbled, leaving her stuck in an alternate dimension prison world, this girl just can't catch a break, can she?

And now that she's got an idea on how to get back to the real world, if she even does make it back then she's in for a rude awakening...Jeremy is leaving Mystic Falls for good!

McQueen is set to exit the CW series next episode, as Jeremy decides to head off to art school and leave all the supernatural shenanigans of Mystic Falls in his rear view mirror.

"I wouldn't dare kill Jeremy; I think that would be all forms of cruelty," executive producer Julie Plec tells E! News. "But I do think that he's a man now, he's not a little kid anymore and he's got to live his life. It's time for him to get started doing that."

But will there be closure for "Beremy" before he goes?

"I can't say that Bonnie ever really has closure with anyone, you know what I mean?" Graham tells E! News. "She kind of just ups and leaves and does her own thing whenever she wants to [laughs]. But, I will say that it definitely does get addressed. I won't say that it doesn't."

McQueen's last day of shooting on the CW show is one that Graham will always remember...because the whole cast played a prank on him!

"There's actually this really cool video," Graham says. "We videotaped it, so I think they're going to release it really soon. We jumped out and surprised him while he was shooting his scene and it was super fun. I mean, it felt like a celebration of such a great, momentous moment, a culmination of all these years that we had all spent together with him. And he was somebody who always brought such silliness and young fun energy to the set. He will be deeply missed."

And though she couldn't reveal exactly what was coming up for Bonnie now that she's speeding off toward Nova Scotia to access Qetsiyah's (Janina Gavankar) magic that is hidden in Silas' (Paul Wesley) headstone (season four callback!), Graham did tease that some big stuff is coming on the show.

"It's going to be a really cool season for everyone," Graham says. "There are some really intense things that happen and some new kind of shocks in this kind of work."

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
