Connor Jordan (Todd Williams)
We loved him because: After a few lackluster villains popped up (Mikael was kind of a letdown, y'all), Connor was a true threat to our vampires. He was even willing to eviscerate innocent human April to draw the vampires out in Mystic Falls. A truly terrifying adversary gave Season 4 the kick it needed.

We lost him because: Elena sure knows how to pick 'em -- Connor was her first kill as a vampire, after he threatened her life, and more importantly, Jeremy's.
