The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 12 – TV Review

TVD What Are You? Stefan hungover

It’ll be okay as long as you don’t get breathalyzed. Or vomit.

I was going to use a different first image for this review. Because something actually of excitement and note occurs.

But the moment truly is worth keeping as a surprise.

Of my two dying wishes for this show, it fulfills one of them.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 10 – TV Review

TVD Nostalgia's a Bitch Cade

That’s what happens when you smoke Sirens.

Somewhere amongst all this “magic does what we say it does,” telepathic mind journey, forced life-or-death situation bullshit this episode, I’m sure there’s an invested, personal story that’s driven by our main characters somewhere.

Sadly, that story is the twenty millionth retread of Stefan and Damon’s “I hate you/me for turning you/me into a vampire” whinge.

Only six episodes to go, everyone. Let’s slog it out.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 9 – TV Review

TVD The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch Sybil Miss Mystic Falls

This episode is as confused as this terrible attempt at a caption.

I mean, I knew the Sirens were tedious and arbitrary.

TVD We Have History Together Alexandra Chando

For the second season in a row? Oh, Rayna.

At least Alexandra Chando’s young doctor doesn’t tease us with the possibility of becoming an actual character, like Rayna did.

And it was nice of TVD to throw her a bone after passing her up all those years ago, thereby sentencing her to ABC Family Hell.

Thanks, Season 8.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 7 – TV Review

TVD The Next Time I Hurt Somebody It Could Be You Caroline drinking

Is this not appropriate weeknight behaviour?

Well, the fucking twins are still around.

And TVD pulls a plot point that it already used five seasons ago.

I don’t know if even Katherine’s return could save things at this point.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 6 – TV Review

TVD Detoured on Some Random Backwards Path to Hell Damon dead

Damon’s off to Hell. Again.

You’d think Damon’s staking would be a bit more climactic.

Too bad it’s mired in flawed logic and needless melodrama.

Welcome to TVD Season 8: The Death Throes.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 5 – TV Review

TVD Coming Home Was A Mistake Caroline gun

When she inevitably gets fired from her journalism job for never actually going to work, it’s an idea.

This episode shows that TVD evidently feels bad about offing Tyler so unceremoniously. So, to compensate, everyone pretends to have been super invested in him all along. Which is hilariously false.

The Tyler indignity continues.
