And, seriously, I forgot about half of these... They weren't even make villains! Each season had one or maybe two primary villains, and those villains have been:
Damon (Season 1)
Katherine (Season 2, various times throughout seasons)
Elijah (beginning Season 2)
Klaus (Seasons 2 & 3, various times throughout seasons)
Original family (Seasons 3 & 4)
Esther (Season 4?)
Mikael (sort of, for Klaus)
Silas (Season 5?)
Travelers (current)

Klaus will always be my favorite villain. He was truly the first "big bad". Katherine was afraid of him, Isobel was mostly a threat because she worked for him, Elijah (while scary) initially arrived to kill Klaus.. He was truly the "original" (ha!) villain on The Vampire Diaries.

Allison berry barbieri

Agreed. Hysterical tears for The Originals. Dry eyes for all of TVD...even through Elena's bawling. TVD has faked me out too often.

Why would his human child be on the other side? And angels and Satan do not even make appearances on this show. Confused.

Why would you assume it's the final season? I doubt it. I think it will keep going as long as the actors are willing and the show gets good rating for the CW. Look at Supernatural. I love that show but it should have ended after Season 5! But, huge fan base and big ratings means more seasons in TV world!

Tyler is still a wolf. Like Markos said before Tyler died "You are just a boy with a werewolf gene".

Allison berry barbieri

True! I didn't think of that until reading these comments. I think that there is real validity to that theory of the holding hands being the saving grace!

Questions and My Hope for Season 6: Questions:
1. Is the spell in Mystic Falls still active? There was no proof that killing the travelers stopped the spell. In fact now that both dopplegangers live again, can it keep spreading? I either missed something, it was left open, or there was a continuity error. 2. For anyone that has read the books, do they follow the story in the books at all? Or have they gone so off-book that it's really just it's own show now? 3. What on earth is Alaric? Human? Vampire? 4. Did Vicki find peace? Is that why we didn't see her? Or was she sucked into the void? 5. Is Sheriff Forbes dead or alive? I am weary of TVD these last two seasons. The trajectory of the show is even evident in the season finales:
Season 1- Katherine shows up, cuts off UncleDaddy's fingers and we have our first villian! Awesome and shocking!
Season 2: Klaus kills Jenna (and this is when we thought death meant something on TVD), UncleDaddy John sacrifices himself for Elena to live, Stefan goes RIPPER! Oh no! What will happen?! Save Stefan! I'm so sad for Jenna!!!
Season 3: BEST FINALE EVER! Elena makes a choice, Bex kills Elena, ELENA IS A VAMPIRE!
Season 4: What the frack? What does Silas look like Stefan?? Another doppleganger (what is UP with the dopplegangers??)? Stefan is in a box... What? I mean, huh? Where is this going? But, Delena love so that was cool.
Season 5: Seriously? Between the Traveler crap, death having absolutely no meaning, the spells and the convoluted mess that is the Other Side and Bonnie as an anchor.... And then Damon?! Really? Ugh. It left me dry-eyed and angry. My hopes:
Julie Plec and Co, can you please simplify the show at least a little? Let's hope this is truly a "reset" and you can start a new story that doesn't have resurrected witch mothers trying to take down her children (Esther), a mystery cure that amounts to almost nothing (Silas), a truly baffling doppleganger history that makes sense but still is confusing, and this Traveler CRAP. I hope that:
1. Damon is rescued as a vampire but with a caveat or something that ends what has become an annoying relationship with Elena. Or, EVEN BETTER, Elena goes to save him and somehow comes back human. I liked human Elena MUCH better.
2. Bonnie finally bites it. Sorry guys, no more witchy JuJu to fix EVERYTHING.
3. The Other Side collapses and is gone forever. Dead means DEAD. It was only created by that traveler chick anyway, right? No need for it.
4. Tyler is a werewolf (no more hybrids on this show), Caroline/Stefan/Damon are vampires, Elena comes back human upon saving Stefan, Alaric is just a teacher and not a whatever he was when he died, Bonnie is gone and witches are out of the picture. Jeremy and Matt stay just as they are.
5. They tell a story with their current characters instead of always having to have a "big bad villian".

Okay, Matt Richenthal, you got a few key things wrong based on TVD mythology: Lexi is not back. Come on, Bon Bon. Couldn't you have just stumbled into her as well? Wouldn't Lexi coming back just do exactly what you complained about? Death meaning nothing? A few people had to die permanently, and Lexi will be permanent. Tyler is human. Interesting. That's the sort of change-of-pace TVD needs. Is everyone who returned human? Or only Tyler because of how he was tossed into the cursed town as Julian? NO, Tyler is NOT human. He is a boy with a werewolf gene. They all died as supernatural beings or they would not have ended up on "The other side"...hence, Elena saying to Damon in the car "We have to do it while we're still vampires". The ones that went out as vampires came back as such, hence I do not think Damon will come back as human. The way Tyler died is the reason he is not a hybrid. He was forced into the part of Mystic Falls where the spell was active. He first stopped being a hybrid, burned in the sun and then neck snapped...he did just a kid with the werewolf gene.

Sadly, I agree with this statement. I don't want an end to the show, I love it...but I want it reinvigorated or tied up nicely before it becomes absolute crap. It's happened with Supernatural, it's happening with TVD... I really thought things were getting good again when Elena was turned into a vampire but it went south again half-way through that season. And, I routed for Damon and Elena so much...and then they got together and... eh. I just wish they would stop coming up with weird ways to keep the show going, and sort of strip it back down to the original characters and their journeys....we don't need a "big bad" every season, do we?
