The story finally kicked up tonight. And among other things we finally got our endgame answer. Stelena is officially over! Delena if they can work things out without misunderstandings will be together because as Elena said, and I'm paraphrasing because I don't remember actual words, they make their own destiny. ( I really wish that was the case in some of these indian soaps but that's another story).
It's Witches vs Travelers and the Travelers need doppelganger blood i.e. Stefan and Elena's blood to win that war! The whole fated for each other was Markos's spell that brought the doppelgangers together. So they're not fated. Hurrah for Delena fans!
Stefan and Elena in Markos's induced dreams saw as Elena said, "Paradise" but it wasn't real and could never be since they were human and parents in the dreams and that could never be reality. I think tonight JP and co. finally closed Stelena's chapter and on for Delena if those two could get their acts together.
Damon thought he was beating Elena to it by telling her that he can't ever be friends so he never wants to see her again because he thinks it's the only solution. I mean I get it. Try being in Damon's shoes. Elena saw a beautiful life with Stefan, real or not and that intimidated Damon and made him doubt himself. He will not admit it but he compares and measures himself to Stefan all the time. Stefan is the perfect Salvatore in everyone's eyes though he is far from perfect. Stefan is kind, loving, compassionate and well-liked while Damon is the screw-up, the murderer, the 'bad' brother.
Damon was witness to Stelena love and he feels like he can't compare because he can't change who he is. (See the no. of times Damon told Elena that he's not Stefan). He doesn't have to change. Who he is, is who Elena fell in love with in the first place and they still haven't had the mature conversation I am waiting for where Elena shows him that he doesn't need to change because she loves him flaws and all. Damon can be good but he constantly self-sabotages because no one really believes in him.
Delena should be back on by end of the season I think...I am hoping JP and co. does justice to bring them back together and that they have someone in mind for Stefan (Steroline maybe?)
They're trying wayy to hard to make Enzo Klaus-like and Julie, let me tell you now, that awesomeness can not be replicated. There's only one Klaus Mikaelson and bringing in another British sweet-talking, snarky vamp ain't gonna change that!
KOL! KOL! KOL! Courtesy of Matt being dead once again, we got to see Kol on the other side and the Original vamp isn't like he used to be. He seemed more vulnerable to me, pleading with Matt to find out what was happening on the Other Side.
All in all, decent episode. I liked the Stelena stuff, the Delena stuff...the story is finally going somewhere. Hopefully somewhere good. And Tyler being a passenger for a traveler close to Markos spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
What did you guys think of the episode?
