Everyone has shows that are total guilty pleasures right? Shows that you’re probably too old to be watching but you just can’t get enough of them. Well, ‘Vampire Diaries’ was absolutely one of those shows for me. I would say it is in my top three guilty pleasure shows that I didn’t want people knowing I watch. The other two are ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and ‘Teen Mom’ in case you were curious.
Last night we said goodbye to Mystic Falls after eight season. It’s insane to think that the show lasted that long, but it did, even after Nina Dobrev left. Ir still managed to have heartbreaking storylines and kept you interested. For the most part at least.
I will preface this post with saying that there are spoilers and I am definitely going to ramble but I won’t apologize at all.
Through the eight seasons of ‘Vampire Diaries’ there have been so many deaths of major characters but I never thought they would actually kill off a main character. Last night, they did just that. Unfortunately Stefan sacrificed himself so Damon could live a long life with Elena. Fucking Stefan died for his brother and that is beautiful, okay?
The only death that hit me harder than that one was when Caroline’s mother passed away because holy shit, that really did a number on me.
For the record, everyone was thinking that Bonnie was going to die, because she almost always dies. Her heart did stop for a moment but she didn’t die.
Last night’s episode was beautiful and it brought back every single character. Every major character that had been killed off was brought back which I thought was beautiful. This is a show about the living and the living dead, and bringing both of those worlds together in a different way was very beautiful.
Truthfully, I can’t say much more. Bonnie went off to travel the world, Caroline opened up a boarding house and got a note from Klaus which spun Twitter into an absolute rampage. There are many rumors that Caroline will make her way over to ‘The Originals’ which I actually hope happens. Caroline Forbes is one of my all time favorite television characters. Katherine Pierce was great too, I am so glad we got to see her before she was literally sent back to hell.
Elena and Damon ended up together and when they both died, they were reunited with their families. Elena say Jon, Jenna, and her parents. Who did Damon see? He saw Stefan of course and said “Hello Brother”.
The quote that really did me in though?
“One day after a long life we find each other again.”
I can only hope that is true.
Thank you for a great series, I hope we see all these actors again.
