    I also love the way it's like the Kai mask slips for a second in the below gif and you see this odd look of contempt on Chris' face.










    He goes from clownish to "I totally hate you" in a flash. Which has nothing really to do with what Kai is supposed to be feeling in that scene.



    But yeah, the walking away gifs are superb.











    "Why don't you go cry at the Farmer's Market? They sell artisanal handkerchiefs handcrafted by organic free range alpacas. Maybe you can even adopt one."


    "You know who would be super interested in your current man pain? Hollywood Life. I'd look up their number for you . . . but I'm pretty sure you already have them on speed dial under 'CosmicBFFS'."

    That face Ian is making in it is verging on Dawson crying face.

    So many captions for the walk-away gif.

    "Everyone knows what's happening with your hair, dude."

    "'Kay, you two have fun fighting about your eye color."

    As a public service, I hunted down all the decent Kai gifs from 6.16:







































































    . . . and he walks away like a BAMF in his Magnificent Dark Magic Warlock Coat.

    I have to re-watch all the Kai parts because I was too distracted by his face to pay attention to what was going on

    Ugh, Caroline's rave hair was the worst. I hope this isn't how they choose to distinguish Off!Caroline from regular Caroline, like the way they did with Off!Elena's pink streak.

    I like that Caroline does stay a control freak even while off. That feels in character, and that's how she is different from Off!Elena. Honestly, this feels like a fun directions, even if it really is just a way to make getting Steroline together for reals take longer and seem more hard earned.

    My fave stuff was actually Bonnie's arc last night. I'm digging the way she's facing actual consequences for having been trapped alone, and I like that she has Kai-related PTSD. They are usually so quick to brush off the brutish things that happen to them, and this feels kinda realistic. And I also felt Damon's betrayal as an actual betrayal, so that was well done.

    But, oh! Kai! Empathy!Kai is less fun but more interesting, right? He still gets to be a snarky bastard, but we can also see him feel hurt and pain, and that's great.

    I'm no longer heavily invested in any TVD ships anymore . . . but romantically speaking, I think BonKai has more narrative possibilities than a romantic Bamon ever could. For power witch couple reasons, sure, but also when she was storming away from him, it reminded me of Katherine telling Stefan that hate is the beginning of a love story, not the ending. And we know Bonnie and Kai *do* team up in 6.17 to help Damon rescue his mama, and that (plus Caroline and Stefan as a gruesome twosome) is the relationship I'm most interested in. It can't go anywhere b/c of Cordon, obvs, but it should be firework-y while we have it.

    Yes! What was up with her hair? Didn't she just get a new hair dryer? Ha ha.
    Have to admit I am looking forward to a Steroline bad couple arc. However it will be dreary to see them regret it later when their humanity is back.

    Caroline's hair was super distracting this episode.

    First clip from 6.16:



    http://youtu.be/-kXDhux-SWM


    Damon and Kai, opening up Mama Salvatore's coffin.






    Such a classic TVD move to have the so called villain of the season be all like, "yes, of course I will help you heroes with whatever random thing you are up to this Thursday, why wouldn't I?"

    The clip does raise many questions, though. Like, why is Kai still in Mystic Falls? Where does he live now? Does Damon know where he lives, or does Damon just have Kai on speed dial for some reason? How does Kai pay his cell phone bill, anyway? Or afford such a magnificent coat?

    The clip answers none of these, and the ep probably won't either.


    Also, the producer's inside look at 6.16:

    http://youtu.be/5FAtuvnzMpE


    Mostly some S/E bits (talking about Caroline), and a glimpse at the rave.

    Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — LilSlim

    Caroline shutting off her humanity switch is going to have massive repercussions for everyone. “Stefan makes a very, very tough decision that changes everything for him for quite a while,” teases Ian Somerhalder, who’s directing next week’s episode. When I pressed whether Stefan will also be shutting off his humanity switch, Somerhalder played coy. “Stefan goes through a pretty intense transformation,” he says.


    I don't know how Stefan shutting off his humanity will help Caroline rediscover hers, but anything that shakes up Stefan's flatness this season is probably a good thing.

    Ok, just caught up. I liked it. I liked the Bonnie/Damon moment, weirdly enough!

    I was totally eye-rolling Stefan on his "HOLY SHIT CAROLINE IS HOT WHILE SINGING" moment. Like: Shaddup, Stefan.

    The Ric stuff? Eh?

    6.17 synopsis:







    This might have been Chris' last ep, for all we know. I don't think we have any documentation of him filming past 6.17. Totes possible that Kai gets stuck in the 1903 snowy prison world . . . which would be a really elegant solution to the problem of Kai, right? You put him on ice (literally) and yet also keep him safe and alive, so therefore all the Geminis are safe and alive. And he has a conscience now, so he can use the time alone to repent or whatever -- and they can bring him out of cold storage at some other point for chaos agenting whenever Chris' schedule allows (or if Cordon gets cancelled right out of the gate). Would be even better if they made it somehow his choice . . . like he sacrifices himself to stay behind so that the others can leave. Give Kai a nice satisfying hero's exit. (This is assuming that not only D/E travel to the prison world this time).



    Read some spec that Bonnie's 'gift' might have something to do with The Cure. As in, S4's The Race For The Cure. Which backfired on Katherine, of course, because Katherine was 500 yrs old, but wouldn't harm either Elena or Caroline in the same way. So the theory is that we might have a human Elena by season's end.

    Price's recap for 6.15:

    http://www.tv.com/shows/the-vampire-...-142439039951/















    He looooved this ep a whole bunch.



    Did y'all even notice Enzo wasn't in this one? It didn't occur to me until this recap. That's how integral he is to the plotline.
