Just like every episode following the wedding, this season finale is inconsequential.
They just rope in a few of the Originals who have been absent, kill off (like we even believe that’ll be permanent) a couple of villains who never really did anything, anyway, and end without any of the conflict or tension that made last season’s finale so spectacular.
Pick your shit up next season, guys? Okay?
Aiden and Josh should never have tempted fate with their shallow, struggle-free romance.
We can’t have happy couples ’round these parts, boys. This is the land of the Elijah/Hayley rift and Klaus and Camille’s seemingly endless unrequited love.
Learn to be a little more tortured next time, Josh. God.
You’d think I’d be more distracted by the lavish werewolf royal wedding. Or the death of an Original. Or the revival of another. Or the revelation of Hope’s alive status to the world.
But no. The Elijah Hotness Parade is a much higher priority.
Not for Hayley, apparently, though.
