Who knew that centuries’ old monogamist lesbians wouldn’t want their father figure’s penis in their bed, right?
It’s funny. As The Originals rises, The Vampire Diaries falls, and vice versa.
Season 5 of TVD was bland (after we lost Katherine, anyway), while season 1 of The Originals was a burst of fresh blood.
Season 6 of TVD gave us the holy, eternal Kai, while season 2 of The Originals stuck us with a no-stakes plot against the goddamn baby.
And now, as The Originals throws off the shackles of baby oppression and gets back to vampire business, so TVD sinks into mediocrity as every character somehow forgets how easy it is to stake or tear out a heart.
Let’s hope that mystery female assailant from the flash forwards turns out to be Katherine.
