I realize that at this point, talking about the TVD season finale and the countless things that went wrong with it would be a bit repetitive.
To be sure, the episode had some good parts, too. I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy some aspects of it that were handled well, namely, Matt and Rebekah’s adventures, the Klaroline resolution and the Stefan/Silas subplot.
But the bad outweighed the good by a landslide.
For a while, I thought the bitter taste in my mouth was left by Bonnie Bennett’s rushed and underwhelming departure. I thought my vitriol was caused only by the disregard shown to her character.
Then, slowly, I realized why I was still angry.
Bonnie still thinks of Elena as “her best friend”?
Someone should let her know Elena doesn’t give a rat’s ass about her right now.
If anyone should get that title, it’s Caroline.
And I hate that, since Katherine threatened to kill Elena, Bonnie’s in “saving the doppelganger” mode yet again.
I mean, Jesus, she’s literally died and she’s still more concerned about Elena?!
What are they gonna do, make her die twice just so she can sacrifice herself again?
I really, really hope that won’t be Bonnie’s sole purpose in this finale.
Cuz if that’s the case, heads will roll.
this would have been a perfect moment had Elena actually CHOSEN to turn it off
as it is, this lecture should have been given to Damon
guys, there’s definitely something up with Damon in those promotional photos
i mean Elena seems to be concerned about a possible wound
and even though you can’t see Damon’s face, he seems to be cringing or turning away like he doesn’t want her to see it, or doesn’t want to deal with it
that’s made more obvious here
where he literally turns away from her. he’s trying to deny something is wrong and Elena is not buying it; in fact, she gets all panicky (note that this is humanity-on-Elena so she is legit concerned, not just angry).
finally we have this photo and I don’t know, does anyone think he’s looking a bit unvampire-ish?
he seems more vulnerable than usual and his facial expression screams “i’m hiding smth potentially harmful.”
he’s still got his daylight ring on but there’s something off about him.
maybe it’s just my imagination, but it seems like a repeat of the season 2 finale when Damon was bitten and needed Klaus’ blood, but now it’s something that can’t be cured, because he has literally taken the cure.
then again, it could be something totally different. but it’s something.
and i’m getting the hunch that, whatever it is, Elena won’t be able to help him or he won’t want her help(judging from those pics).
if that’s the case, our favorite witch might need to step in, if you know what i mean.
So let me get this straight; not only are they torturing Elena, but they’re gonna let the vampire who KILLED her brother rub it in her face?
man if I were Elena I’d vow to kill those motherfucking Salvatore brothers with my bare hands.
you know tvd is becoming a horror show
think about it; this young girl is taken as lover by two brothers, then dies, then is alive, then is sired to one of them, then is compelled to erase her emotions, then gets tortured for it
at first i thought it was a joke
or a fanfic
elena, caroline and bonnie go to college?
uuuum, i think you sort of need to study and take tests and write essays and apply to schools and i don’t know work your fucking ass off?
kinda insulting for the rest of us who had to do it the ol’ fashioned way
these three can’t even show up for school once a month
hell, do they even know where it is anymore?
pretty sure they haven’t opened a textbook in what, 2 years?
and no, planning or attending proms, parties and pageants does NOT exempt you from actual school work
are they saying that elena and caroline compelled the board of admission? or did bonnie put a spell on them?
did the salvatore brothers bribe anyone?
cuz given their track record these three should be aiming at waitressing at the Grill until they do-over the last 2 years of high school
“Hey, Bonnie. Heard you got your mind wiped. That sucks.”
Excuse you, Elena, but you do not talk to the queen like that.
You also do not give her the bitch face.
You just don’t.
Because if by some writing loophole you managed to beat Caroline in one of the most cringe-worthy fighting scenes of the season, if not the show, you’re not going to be able to last a second when Bonnie Fucking Bennett releases her dark magic on your doppelganger ass.
You do not want to anger the girl who kept the Original hybrid trapped in your house for three fucking days.
You definitely don’t want to piss off a direct descendant of Qetsyiah.
Bonnie might have ignored you here cuz she’s flawless and you’re just a baby vamp who doesn’t know any better (switching off wasn’t your choice, we get it), but keep it up and you’re gonna get such a shitstorm of aneurysms, you won’t even be able to touch Caroline’s dress.
And if you do go up against the queen and try to give her shit during prom, Bon Bon will walk past you looking perfect and she’ll be like
