Okay, this episode, man, I don't even know how to put it into words. It was good, not as good as it used to be, sure naturally, but better than some of the stuff they've put us through. But it's like every single thing that happened was the worst thing that could've happened. And you can feel it's gonna happen. There's one moment where you're like 'okay, bad but fixable' but you know they're gonna go with the worst possible outcome.
Like Damon breaking up with Elena. What the hell was that ? Come. On. Damon, I mean Damon just left Elena. Oh really ? Because that's unheard of *cough*fouth time!!*cough!
Seriously, they have pulled that shit a million times over. Damon's not good enough for Elena because he is oh so selfish, so he leaves her. Sure he always has a good reason. His brother's always better than him, better for her. Or he doesn't want her to have to defend him for all the terrible things he's done because he's a terrible terrible person. And, oh right, he can't be with her because it might not be real for reasons of the supernatural sort. You know, the regular stuff.
We get it, she's gonna end up with Stefan. Every single time Damon and Elena move forward, something happens that makes Damon realize he's done bad things. So he checks out. And the rest of the time Elena is Team Stefan.
That being said, I do still hope that somehow Elena and Stefan won't end up together. Let's be honest here for a second, shall we ? Stefan and Katherine together ? Yes, please. That's chemistry right there, it is so much more interesting than Stefan and Elena. Or even Damon and Katherine. Well Damon and anyone really. I don't see him ending up with someone other than Elena and calling it a happy ending. Damon's happy ending is Elena choosing him over his brother. Anything else will be emo Damon. And although that used to be nice, it's not really doing for me anymore.
Anyway, that is absolutely not the point. Katherine and Stefan. Finally, it's happened. But Katherine is still a bad person and former big bad, remember ? Back when the show was awesome ? And well, Stefan is still Stefan, living brooding moral compass and all the way good person. So it's not like he's gonna forgive her right away I mean that wouldn't be fun. But anyway, it's on a nice little path, heading in the right direction, please TVD, do not disappoint.
Besides, excuse me, but that look ??? He doesn't look at Elena that way. No sir, he does not.
Please, please don't ruin it. Like by killing Katherine off. Or putting her in someone else's body, don't you dare do that. Actually I think I'd rather she died than look like someone else. And no trying to kill Elena, please for the love of everything that is holy, we all know it's never gonna happen, just let it go. How about she just magically heals ? Or dies and comes back immortal ?! Yeah do that.
So, Katherine took the cure a while back and became a human. All was right with the world. Except, she's aging super fast and she can't ingest vampire blood. By the way we would've done just fine with the simple Katherine's not good at being a human plot. That was great. But Katherine dying ? Except for making her way to redemption a lot quicker, it really sucks. If she dies.. well I can't say I'm gonna stop watching, because after 5 years of this, my brain is wired to never give up on the Vampire Diaries, but man, I'll be pissed !
I might be repeating myself but I want Stefan and Katherine to end up together. Again, the relationship is much much more interesting than say, Stefan and Elena's. I really like Katherine. Lately, her scenes have been the only ones actually worth watching in my opinion. And even in season 2, they made it so we loved to hate her. She's just badass like that. I'd very much like it if she had a happy ending too. And her happy ending is Stefan.
I know that's a lot of screen caps but man, that moment ! I know they're played by the same person but Katherine is waaaaaay better than Elena, more, I don't know.. moving I guess ? When Elena's sad, now I just don't care, okay I see you're sad and yeah, bummer but it's not sad for me. However seeing Katherine's face when Stefan says he's sorry about her dying, I'm like "WHAaAaHaAAHyY ?! Pleeeeease let her be happy" *ugly sobbing*
This is gonna sound so fangirly but remember in the second season when there was a flashback explaining how Katherine didn't die in 1864 (we all know that date by heart now don't deny it) ? Damon and Stefan had gotten shot trying to rescue her and after she got free, she kneeled over his transitioning-to-vampire-dead body and promised they'd be together again. Super cheesy, be prepared, but in the episode before when they "were together all night" wink wink, it made me think of that moment when she's remembering, all dreamy and such. And I was like "awwwww she kept her promise".
Damon and Katherine are actually the only two characters I care about and want to be happy. I've been shipping Delena for years now -kind of sounds super committed when you phrase it like that like, people, years we have been fighting for this, years I tell you ! Anyway I've always wanted Damon to get Elena. Because I want him to get the girl ! Elena is a pain but she has the merit of being his freaking soul mate. It's almost cheesy how he's all like she's the girl. Same for Katherine. Almost 4 seasons she's been pining for Stefan ! Come on, let her have him, girl deserves it.
So I don't want her to die. I don't want Damon and Elena to break up, I don't want Stefan to be the one rescuing Elena, I don't want Elena not to go after Damon, I don't want the writers to always choose the worst of the two possible endings. Stefan actually did okay in that department. Okay, you're not gonna forgive her instantly but, hand-holding. But the other stuff sucked.
On the plus side, we did not see or hear of Bonnie, Caroline OR Jeremy once in the entire episode. That was a much needed and appreciated break.
