Much like last episode, I would be hesitant to call this episode, and series finale, a trainwreck. Because trainwrecks are actually exciting.
If I had to distill The Originals series finale down to one word (and this is the Internet, baby. Distilling complex ideas into clickbaity, list format is the name of the game), it would be “meh.”
And “meh” is not how I want to feel about the finale of what once was the best vampire soap opera on the CW.
Even the TVD finale wasn’t meh (it wasn’t good, either. But you know).
It makes me wonder how much of a garbage dump the Legacies finale will be. And by “finale,” I mean at the end of the first season. Do you really think that it’ll be renewed?
TVD Series Finale Pros/Cons List:
Cons: was shit.
Pros: had Katherine.
Eh, I’ll take it.
No, really. I am concerned.
Katherine isn’t in this episode. Which means we only have next week’s finale left, and I’m gonna guess there’s a strong chance that Nina Dobrev will need to spend at least a little bit of that episode as Elena.
I want more Katherine than we’ve gotten, is what I’m saying. And a fuckton less of Matt’s fucking family.
