With The Vampire Diaries, at long last, dead and buried, it’s time for The Originals to see if it can stand on its own.
Oh, honey. It’s been doing that just fine since last season.
And don’t worry, Damon is still around, too. He’s just out of frame.
Just like Elena is out of this show.
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.
Yes, while some choose to accept their grief, Elena decides to chop hers up in a bowl, instead.
Because the only thing missing from the Elena Cavalcade of Melodramatic Issues was “drug addict.”
Season 6: ticking the boxes.
