And can you believe Stefan was the one to finally get the job done?
After being retconned out of his great love for Elena, being passed over for main character status in Elena’s wake (thanks, Damon), and losing his girlfriend to his (and her) old teacher in the flash forwards, who knew Stefan had any will left to do anything?
Bonnie’s pain is a tiny consolation prize to the rest of this pointless, sappy episode.
Maybe season 7 will pull a reverse season 5, and have its second half come in to save its so-far abysmal first?
Well, my smarmy assertion last week about TVD’s fall against The Originals’ rise seems to be holding true.
The Originals had a powerful, knockout episode this week.
And poor TVD had to dangle the deaths of its leading men in an attempt to force us to feel anything about this once great soap.
