Wowee. In case you somehow missed it, a LOT happened in last year’s finale. That’s nothing new with the Vampire Diaries, it’s actually one of the best things about it. You can expect no less than twelve crazy things to happen in each episode of TVD, and each plot twist moves the plot and characters forward in a natural progression. It’s a show that’s not afraid to make things happen, and that’s why it’s so fucking great.
So, first big thing is that Elena (Nina Dobrev) chose Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Which is unfortunate for me because every time I see them kiss I vomit in my mouth a little. But they seem happy so what can ya do. (If you’re like me, you can vomit a LOT. It’s really gross. They are gross together.)
Bonnie (Kat Graham) brought Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) back to life (ugh, he’s so whiney), and the spell killed her. The thing is, Jeremy can see dead people because of his immortality ring. So he’s spent the entire summer pretending to send postcards and e-mails to Bonnie’s friends and family so they don’t have to go through the pain of knowing she’s dead. And also, I’m now 100% positive Bonnie is going to be sticking around all season as a ghost that only Jeremy can see. Look, I love Bonnie and Jeremy together. But as individual characters they are both the literal worst. So. I kind of just wish they were both dead and gone. Seriously.
And that Alaric (Matthew Davis) was alive. Wouldn’t that be nice? … 🙂
When Bonnie died her spell that bound Silas (Scott Parks) broke. Welp. Turns out Silas’ true form is…Stephan. So he locked Stephan in a box and threw him in the river. Which was AWESOME. I thought that Silas was going to pretend to be Stephan for most of the season and we were going to sit at home watching, biting our nails, extremely worried about poor Stefan (Paul Wesley) drowning on repeat in the river and nobody even knows to look for him. But. Nah, Silas revealed himself immediately. Cause he wants to kill Katherine.
Which brings me to my next point. Elena force fed Katherine the cure, so Katherine is now human. And extremely vulnerable. Which I’m nervous about because Catherine was the coolest character ever. She still has her bite in this episode, but it’s like she’s lost all of her spunk. Now Nina Dobrev is playing two wet blankets. Poor Nina Dobrev. So much talent… so little outlet for it.
Some woman who Rebecca and Matt had a threesome with over the summer put a spell on Matt. That’s all we know about Matt. Mystery! Rebecca probably left for New Orleans (SAD FACE) cause she is supposed to star in The Originals. I miss her already.
And now, for my favorite plotline… Two vampires attending college, just tryin’a be normal, average vampire college students. Obvs. First of all, this is hilarious. Because WHY. Why are they attending college?? Second of all, Elena and Caroline’s dorm room is literally bigger than my entire apartment. It’s basically the Taj Mahal of dorm rooms. Bigger than Cory and Sean’s, even. And not well lit. Cause it’s for vampires, a-dur.
Welp, these two normal vampire college students have a surprise (GASP) human roommate. Which super foils their whole storing blood bags in the fridge survival plan. But, intrigue, she’s actually part of some odd supernatural scheming that involves Elena’s dead dad.
Then Silas killed Bonnie’s dad and controlled about 50 people’s minds at once. The end.
All in all, it was a pretty exciting, typically fun and fast-paced episode of TVD. I effing love this show, you guys.
