  • I think it's because the twin brother was a total fucking moron?
    It’s just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

    • Could be! Totes valid. Poor Luke. Maybe that's why Kai keeps finding himself helping the Salvatore gang so much. Luke always gave in to helping them, too.

      Other than 'he feels guilty and wants to apologize', they never even gave Kai an actual motive for staying in Mystic Falls instead of heading off to wherever the coven is that he's supposed to be leading. He *wanted* to be leader of the Gemini coven, right? So . . . staying in a location that has only *one* reluctant member of his coven in it makes no freaking sense. Go off and lead, dude. (Not that it matters now).






      Anyways, here's the synopsis for 6.18:

      Here's the synopsis for "I Could Never Love Like That."
      KILLER KARAOKE – With their humanity turned off, Stefan and Caroline (Candice Accola) begin wreaking havoc at Whitmore, leaving Damon to come up with a risky plan involving Lily (guest star Annie Wersching). After rushing to help Jo (guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) treat victims of Stefan and Caroline’s latest killing spree, Elena discovers Jo is pregnant, prompting her to reevaluate her own life as a vampire. Meanwhile, when Sarah (guest star Tristan Mays) boldly turns the tables on an unsuspecting Enzo (Michael Malarkey), he is forced to open up about his tragic past. Lastly, at Scull Bar, a twisted round of karaoke leaves Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Matt (Zach Roerig) in a dangerous situation. Leslie Libman directed the episode with story by Matthew D’Ambrosio and teleplay by Chad Fivash & James Stoteraux (#618). Original airdate 4/16/2015.
      'Elena evaluates life because baby reasons' means that she's going to get misty eyed about teh babiez, Damon is going to see that, and he's going to offer her the cure.

      If I am remembering correctly, after taking the cure Katherine was NOT able to ever become a vamp again, right? So it's a pretty permanent sort of thing. Elena would not be able to become human, have her babies, and *then* decide to vamp herself to be with Damon 'forever'.

      It's good that they know all these things the second time around so they can make an actually informed choice oh who am I kidding whoever gets the cure will have it forced upon them or something messy.

      Tyler and Zach are NOT the people I was hoping to hear sing karaoke.

      • Paul Wesley also stars. Ack. Never a good sign.

        Really super irritating that Elena (again!) is being stripped of her agency while her love interest makes decisions for her. Hate that so much. SO FUCKING MUCH.

        • 6.20 synopsis:

          THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

          “I’d Leave My Happy Home for You” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

          THE CURE – As Alaric (Matt Davis) and Jo (guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) reluctantly participate in their bachelor and bachelorette parties, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) discuss the ramifications from an impulsive offer that Damon makes. Unsure of what to do, Elena turns to Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jo for advice, but is left conflicted when Bonnie raises some unanticipated concerns. When Enzo (Michael Malarkey) realizes Lily (guest star Annie Wersching) is on a dangerous downward spiral, he asks Stefan (Paul Wesley) to help intervene before it’s too late. Lastly, fed up with the supernatural threats that plague their town, Matt (Zach Roerig) takes his frustrations out on Tyler (Michael Trevino), while Alaric considers a life-changing piece of advice. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Brett Matthews & Rebecca Sonnenshine (#620). Original airdate 4/30/2015.
          I assume Elena's exit is going to be cure related, so she's the obvs choice, but I wonder if Damon's 'impulsive offer' is for them to go back to the 1910 prison world for the 1910 cure, so he can take that cure and she can take the 1994 cure, and they can be human together. That's obvs not going to work, though.

          • Ugh. This episode was soooo boring.

            I am officially skipping all Enzo scenes going forward.

            The Delena scenes are so awkward. I really don't care about Mama Salvatore. I hate that Damon was being the quiet hero to bring Stefan back. I hate that Damon will be the one to "save" Elena and make her human again.

            I don't blame Elena for leaving: she has NOTHING to do this season.

            The only thing I liked was that Matt refused Elena's blood. And I liked that she seemed like human Elena with Matt for the first time since she changed.

            I really don't like the vampires on this show! They're a bunch of assholes!

            • I was not impressed with this episode either. They really gave Elena nothing to do. The Enzo stuff, Malarkey had revealed some of that leading up to the episode, so it was boring. I am not interested in Sarah Salvatore either. I guess we can figure out what is happening to Kai in the 1903 prison world now. I am guessing he will be coming back as a combo witch/vampire.

              • Think all the normal viewers agree with you as the ratings are:
                On The CW, The Vampire Diaries returned to a series low 0.6, down 14 percent from a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating for its most recent original episode.
                Think it had 1.34 million viewers.

                • For me, this ep was blah blah blah blah wait-- did they say Vampire Warlock Kai!!?! Everything but that idea was a boring blur.

                  I would totes be down with Vampire Warlock Kai because YES. I don't even care that it makes no sense to change the 'vampires can't be witches' rule, whatever.

                  • They probably should have ended at S6 rather than dragging it out - it's now down to joint 4th in the CW ratings - The Flash is way out in front. And it's tied with iZombie on 4th which makes people think iZombie will be picked up. It used to be way out in front of everything on ratings. (Goes off to look at baseball stats now)

                    • Yeah, I'm hearing rumblings that iZombie will be picked up, which is a good thing.

                      I'm sure the ratings will pick up a bit toward the end of the season as people tune in to see how they are going to write Elena off. But S7 is likely to be a death spiral.

                      • AV Club's review is pretty spot-on here:

                        The thing about this is that two seasons ago, it wouldn’t have seemed out of place at all, but in the past few years Elena has existed as far more of a plot driver than a character. Beyond wanting to have Damon, what has Elena really wanted? She wanted to go to school, sure, but that thread was dropped so quickly—and Whitmore used more like a backdrop for supernatural stories than anything about Elena’s character growth—that it feels like a lifetime ago. Jo mentions Elena’s desire to be a doctor here but how much has she truly expressed that desire in the past? TVD took a bit of a wrong turn with Elena a while ago, and while it’s admirable the show is attempting to build her character back up in order to give her a valiant sendoff, it feels a bit like they’re paying for the sins of their past in how awkward it all seems right now.
                        They also noted how weird it is that nobody told Matt or Tyler that Caroline and Stefan were "off". It's like none of these people are friends anymore.
                        It’s just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

                        • Yeah, and Jo not even knowing they'd trapped her brother in 1903. It's like these people don't know how to use their phones.


                          Price recap of whatever we watched most recently. 6.18? 6.19?
                          http://www.tv.com/shows/the-vampire-...-142922661332/

                          A quick note about Nina Dobrev's departure, and ONLY a quick note because you know we'll have more to talk about after the season finale. As much as we've made fun of Elena or been frustrated by her choices or laughed at her self-obsession, Nina Dobrev is and always has been the best actor on the show. Not just this show, but pretty much any show on TV. She's so extremely good that her loss will be nothing short of devastating. If you thought losing the Mikaelsons was a blow, whoa mama, this is gonna hurt. That being said, Season 6 has been such a thrilling course correction that I want to see what the brain trust has in store for this show post-Dobrev. You know? Let's talk about how well they do next Fall. For now let's appreciate every single frame that Nina Dobrev is in, I know I am.

                          I really do not understand his love affair with this season. Other than Kai, what is there to love?

                            • I dont see why he loves this season so much, except for Kai. I mean all the characters are so far apart from each other and just drifting and Yes I completely agree it is like they do not know how to pick up a phone and talk and say hey this is whats up with our friends. I mean come on no one new Jo was pregnant and now they are suppose to be getting all into their wedding?
