Vampire Diaries Season Finale

So, I couldn’t resist and I ended up watching The Vampire Diaries finale at work- and trust me I don’t regret it one bit!

Honestly, the best episode ever, I don’t even know how to explain how amazing the episode was in this post…really you need to watch the episode for yourself.

***SPOILER ALERT***

I mean really, I’m not going to hold back about tonight’s events, we just need to discuss what happened, why it happened and more importantly what the heck is going to happen come next season?

First off, I want to thank the CW for renewing the Vampire Diaries for a fourth season, because without it we wouldn’t know what will become of Elena now that she’s a VAMPIRE! Yes, she’s a vampire folks! Breaking news- this just in- Elena is officially a vampire, well not officially but the ending scene which resembled the ending of Twilight:Breaking Dawn Part I pretty much hints to a very vampire-ish Elena next season.

So I’ll try starting off at the beginning, which oddly enough wasn’t the ‘beginning’ we had always thought was the beginning. We as the audience and even Elena always thought Stefan was the first of the Salvatore brothers she had met. Damon is a few hours away from Mystic Falls at the storage unit he was hiding Klaus’ body. Stefan was home…and I hate to admit but he was kind of useless in tonight’s finale but we’ll get to that later. Matt date rapes Elena by putting something into her tea, when she wakes up they’re already a few miles out of Mystic Falls. Matt wants to save Elena and take her as far away from the Vampire life (don’t worry he doesn’t try sleeping with her). Thank the lawd for cell phones because halfway through their ride Elena gets a phone call telling her Klaus is dead…Alaric got to him…which means Stefan and Damon could be dead in a very short while.

Klaus claimed he had turned Stefan and Damon into vampires…which would mean if Klaus die they die…also Tyler would die as well. Also, if you’re lost at this point and haven’t been watching the episodes just stop reading now because there’s really no hope for you. It’s just a really complicated but amazing storyline.

So Elena gets all teary-eyed on the phone with Damon, Matt tells her she better make a choice return home or drive out to the storage unit to say goodbye to Damon, Matt clearly can’t drive fast enough for Elena to say bye to both brothers. Obviously, Elena tells Matt to turn back because she wants to be with Stefan. Damon still on the phone with her, asks her if she would ever choose him…she tells him it’ll always be Stefan, but really if she had met Damon before she had met Stefan- maybe things would have worked out differently. Which doesn’t really make sense, just because you meet someone first doesn’t mean you’ll fall in love with them, right?

Anyways, let’s REWIND a little, to the beginning of the episode. Bonnie decides she wants a few minutes alone with Klaus’ dead body. Meanwhile, Tyler and Caroline are forced by their loving mothers to leave Mystic Falls since everyone in town knows they’re vampires and werewolves. Before leaving, Caroline finds out that Klaus is dead- which means Tyler is about to die as well. In what looks to be their final moment together, they say goodbye, Tyler falls to the ground, Caroline leaves, and we assume Tyler is dying. Of course, in this show assumptions will leave you feeling like a complete idiot. So don’t assume- just watch.

When Bonnie was alone with Klaus, she put a spell on him that somehow transferred his spirit/body into Tyler’s, and when Alaric killed Klaus it wasn’t really Klaus who he was killing. (We don’t know if Tyler is dead or Klaus is just borrowing his body, it’ll be interesting next season Klaus might play as Tyler just so he can be with Caroline) Also, remember Stefan and Damon didn’t die, it’s because Klaus wasn’t really dead, if he had really died they would’ve died as well.

Damon and Rebecca are at the storage unit attempting to escape with Klaus’ body, Alaric shows up, he gets to Klaus and before Damon or Rebecca can do anything he stabs Klaus and he goes up in flames. Rebecca manages to get away, Damon stays at the storage unit in hopes of finding valuable treasures in some of the other units (kidding).

Back to Mystic Falls, Rebecca shows up to tell Stefan (since she saw Klaus go up in flames and didn’t know about Bonnie’s spell she thinks her brother is dead) that Alaric is still alive, the only way he can be killed is if she kills Elena.

Alaric is busy beating the crap out of Damon, while he’s in this weird dying faze, Damon remembers the first time he met Elena. It was the night her parents died, which would also mean she met Damon before she met Stefan!!!!! He recalls meeting her on the bridge, but compells her to forget ever meeting him because the Salvatore brothers hadn’t officially returned to Mystic Falls yet. Which explains why Elena never remembered meeting Damon first. Also, now that she’s a vampire and vampires remember everything that happened in their human life, she might remember her meeting with Damon on the bridge, and that might lead to something- just saying.

Suddenly, he gets this urge to fight Alaric, I guess his motivation was to survive and win Elena back. While they’re fighting Alaric starts getting weak.

While Matt and Elena are driving back to Mystic Falls, on the same bridge that her parents died on, Rebecca jumps in front of Matt’s car forcing him to swerve and literally drive off the bridge into the water. Stuck in the car, Matt is so useless he’s already unconscious, somehow Stefan shows up and he goes to pull Elena out. She refuses and tells him (well she cant talk they’re underwater) to take Matt out first. While Stefan’s dragging Matt’s useless body out of the water, Damon starts really hurting Alaric. Alaric falls down and asks what’s happening to him, we see Elena stuck in the car, she starts losing herself until she’s somewhat dead. Alaric turns to stone and basically falls to the floor. Damon realizes that something must have happened to Elena if Alaric is dead.

After that, I know it’s really amazing huh? Jeremy is home, he sees Alaric, for a second you wonder how Alaric is still alive, then you realize Jeremy sees ghosts and he’s totally seeing the ghost of nice Alaric. It was really sad, that scene broke me into pieces.

Elena is dead, she’s at the hospital, Stefan sitting over her dead body. Damon finally arrives, Meredith tells him that Elena had suffered from a brain hemmorage earlier in the day (the bloody nose)…and that she had to give vampire blood to heal Elena. She didn’t want to worry everyone so she didn’t tell them that it was a huge injury. Obviously, vampire blood + death= vampire transformation, so just like the Twilight people did in Breaking Dawn, so did the Vampire Diaries crew.

 

With a beautiful aerial shot of Elena lying on the table, the camera stays still on her, and all of a sudden she opens her eyes and gasps for air. THE END!

SO AMAZING!!, I loved it, I really don’t know what else to say! I’m sad we have to wait 5 months for the next episode but wow is it going to be worth it! We all knew this day would come, Elena turning into a vampire…it just made sense and I’m so happy the writers wrote it into the finale episode. It was just amazing, well done!

Vampire Diaries: One Big Happy Family

Last night’s episode of Vampire Diaries was ah-mazing and definitely worth the wait! Elijah is back (Damon pulled out his dagger)…Stefan is suspicious of Elijah and if they can trust him. Someone or something is killing people in the Mystic Falls Founder’s Group (the medical examiner and now Alaric). We don’t know who it is at the end of the episode, don’t worry Alaric comes back to life once Elena kills him (since he was wearing his ring and can only return to life if he’s killed by supernatural circumstances- aka Elena).

Klaus, Elijah,Damon and Stefan have a nice dinner at Klaus’ mansion. They discuss the terms of their new agreement, whatever it’s going to be. Klaus will leave Mystic Falls along with his family of hybrids if they give him Elena to protect forever. Klaus needs Elena’s blood to create more hybrids so he basically wants the best for her, and he doesn’t want her near Stefan or Damon. Which sucks for us since we’re on the verge of a Damon and Elena romance.

Caroline’s dad is given the vampire blood…but then Caroline finds him dead in a hospital supply room. When he comes back to life he’s in the vampire transformation period…he needs to drink blood…if he doesn’t he’s dead. His decision, since he hates vampires…is to basically let himself die. So he dies.

Bonnie and her mom (Denise from Breaker High) attempt to open the magically sealed coffin several times. Finally, they open it but not all the way (or so they think), Bonnie decides she needs to leave the cave and text Damon letting him know they’re almost there…right when she leaves, Bonnie’s mom turns around and the coffin opens!!

Cut to: The 4 men continue discussing a fair deal, Klaus threatens to kill Stefan if Damon doesn’t bring back the missing coffin. Damon agrees, and Elijah walks out with Damon. You totally think Elijah is back on Klaus’ side. Just then, Elijah and Damon return….along with the entire family!!!!!! Rebecca…Cole…and some weird guy with long hair. They beat up Klaus for a little bit, they all hate him because he’s left them in their coffins for centuries. Klaus confessed to Rebecca that he killed their mother, right before daggering her and basically turning her into a rock.

When Damon and Stefan are free to go, they return to the cave where Bonnie is. They find the two witches lying on the ground, not dead but definitely passed out, the magic coffin is empty…whatever was inside is free now. Damon and Stefan have a moment together in the woods, Stefan tells Damon that he loves Elena…obviously hinting to Damon that he should back off. Damon replies with ‘I love her too!!’!! crazy!! And then Damon just walks away.

Cut back to Klaus’ house…the door opens…and the epic music fades in…Klaus’ mother appears!! I knew it!!! She’s like some godly figure, moving effortlessly through the house, her entire family starring at her in shock. She reaches Klaus, and he can barely look at her. He tells her that she’s here to kill him, and he seems to be okay with it. She tells him he’s her son and she’s only here to forgive him for what he did. Then she turns around to the rest of the family…and tells them she wants them all to be a ‘happy family’ whatever that means!

Until next week.Ugh.
