It’s a sad day when I, a card-carrying Elena hater, think her return would be better than suffering the tripe we’ve been getting in her absence.
Or, preferably, Katherine.
Actually, just Katherine, please, Nina.
The very episode following my bitch and moan about TVD not allowing human drama between its characters, and now we’ve got some potent (if rushed) human drama between its characters.
My complaining changes all our lives for the better.
This episode features a lot of stuff.
But at the same time, nothing really happens.
At least the Spice Girls have now officially disbanded.
So you’re telling me that an episode not featuring all the tacked-on bullshit of this season, and pared back to mostly Damon and Stefan, is one of its best (not that it’s saying much)?
I wish TVD had figured that out sixteen episodes ago.
And, thanks to a pleasantly insane CW, TVD will be shambling on to a season 8.
Not even Nina Dobrev can save us now.
Because she abandoned this leaky boat, bitch.
After letting Arrow and The Flash (and Legends of Tomorrow. And Vixen?) get away with crossovers while they sat on their hands, it’s time for the TVD-verse shows to finally unite for two connected episodes.
Will The Vampire Diaries be buoyed by the current good run of its spin-off sister, or will it shine even duller in pale comparison?
Oh, honey. Have you even been watching this season? Duller, obviously.
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?
