We're in the second half of of the sixth season of the CW TV series, The Vampire Diaries, and I'm starting to get a little apprehensive. After the last episode aired on February 19th, I'm starting to see some things that are starting to repeat themselves, and some things that are making me nervous for the show's well-being. It's throwing me for a loop and I'm not sure how much I can handle anymore.
Jenna died, when Alaric died, when Jeremy died, when Jeremy died for real, when Damon died. Honestly, so many deaths, so many tears shred I can't even count them all. But, honestly, lately, the deaths don't scare me as much, I have way too much hope that they're going to come back. Of that short list of four I just gave, three of the people who died are currently alive and well.
The episode titled "Let Her Go," dealt with a lot of things that were sort of different for the Vampire Diaries. Sheriff Forbes died a natural death, Jeremy left Mystic Falls because he was moving on with his life, not to follow some strange magical cycle, and in the previous Sheriff Forbes and Damon uncovered that the truth behind Elena's parents crash was actually an accident. These things are so normal, so natural, they were so unexpected for a show that focuses so heavily on the supernatural. I think that including things like this every so often is more than necessary for a show like this, it throws us for a loop. We don't expect it.
Caroline, I don't care if it'd be any different if Stefan told her his feelings sooner, I don't want to go through this again. I'm sorry for my lack of interest, but I find it hard to believe that I would I'm the only one thinking this. I predicted it would happen as soon as she said she "had to make it through the day," I probably could have predicted it sooner if I thought that revisiting that plot was even a slight possibility. What was NOT predictable was the part where, as Bonnie was finally getting out of the other world prison, that she saw Damon and Stefan's mom. ???? ???????????????????????????????????????????? What??????
Kai, or the fact that everyone is going to be overjoyed that Bonnie is finally back, or the fact that Jeremy is out of Mystic Falls. I guess I'll be eagerly waiting to see what comes next. Unfortunately. As always.
