That kind of love never dies
October 14, 2014
The Vampire Diaries has gone bonkers. In fact, it has been on a downward spiral since mid-Season 3, but I love it anyway. No matter how many hiatuses I take, I always end up returning and having a marathon, then it’s back to the painful waiting for a new episode every week.
I tend to never finish dramas because they can’t hold my short attention span, let alone follow them for so long. Six seasons and four years (I started watching only a year after its pilot). I’m still here.
Some things never change and some things you simply don’t stop loving.
Some thing always brings me back to you. It never takes too long.
Even when the show is completely crazy and the writing has gone to shit. Seasons 4 and 5 had the worst plots ever because who cares about travellers and the cure? Not me! I thought the one about the Augustine vampires was great but it didn’t last… just like any new potential characters they introduce and then kill off within a few episodes.
Maybe now I’m just watching for Delena and the regular characters who I care very much about… Following Season 6 now and I cried during both episodes wtf. The whole show is one never-ending funeral. I just want everyone to be happy.
Freaking heartbreaking 5×22 finale with a perfect soundtrack WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT.
I completely forgot about me hating the previous episodes where practically everyone got killed off because they were all going to return together anyway (damn pointless and just for the shock factor) and loads of other reasons (like I said, I forgot after the epic finale).
And 5×11 was no doubt one of the best episodes ever. Everyone, even Jenna and John, came back, be it through flashbacks or as ghosts. How not to cry???
Anyway before Season 6 aired, the cast were asked to make three statements about what’s going to happen for their characters. Two of them would be lies and one would be the truth:
I so wanted the one about Alaric and Elena being in a romantic relationship?!!?!? LOL already knew that was a lie but a girl can dream.
Unfortunately, the Season 6 premiere wasn’t great… We have a druggy Elena, Jeremy who doesn’t give a fuck, a perpetually angry Tyler, yada yada yada. Everyone’s apart and grieving in their own ways 🙁
Elena has now gotten Alaric to compel her to forget Damon. This ship will be the death of me. I’m only not as pissed as I should be cos I cling onto the belief that they will find their way back to each other. After all, it’s not the first time we are getting our hearts ripped out by such rubbish. Sire bond, anyone?
A rare moment where they actually look happy and are not interrupted… but hey guess what, it’s not real. I’m only still holding on by reminding myself that their relationship is a marathon and not a sprint. I’ve already waited five seasons, what’s more?
Lol I don’t even know the point of this post… I just have a lot of feelings.
