Are you kidding me? Damon has grown?
Damon has degraded.
As obsessed as he was in the first season, at least he was snarky badass anti-hero, season two and onwards he deteriorated into a crybaby wimp who could not do anything without "loves of his life" saying something. .
So, she completly ignores Caroline and Stefan's friendship in season 3, but in season 4 it's all very important? Okay, that makes sense!
thats what this show has always done, sadly.
TVD ignores stuff and characters till it suddenly decides it needs that.
So Caroline/Steffie friendship was non-existent when Steffie was going through crybaby hell, but now suddenly because its Elena, the friendship yet again is there.
Its same on how they are using Bonnie's family - her mother suddenly appeared out of nowhere because they needed a plot device for Klaus and now her Father will most likely appear for the very similar reason.
The only consistent thing about the show is that every damn character is in love with elena and that Elena is this awesome saint flawless mary sue that does no wrong.
and all of those themes are...3 seasons too late.
Plec, one usually ESTABLISHES why viewers should care about characters first and only then starts doing stupid stuff.
As it is right now, there's no reason to care about anyone but Tyler and Caroline. And certainly no reason to care about miss cardboard Elena.
And if Plec thinks that suddenly after 66 episodes of nothing, she will manage to make viewers CARE about those characters and make them alive, she can dream on. The book has been already written. And no matter what happens the sour taste fo season two and three can't be washed away.
1. Will she be killed within an episode? If not then I guess within two?
2. Will she have even more sexist shitty role than Meredith, Elena and Sage did?
If yes to either of those two, then sorry don't care.
Dantes sails off without Mercedes,but WITH Haydee...who forced him to accept her love for him.(Fernand,entrusted to take care of her,had sold Haydee into slavery,and Dantes rescued her and used that past to bring Fernand down).
So basically Emily and Nolan ride off to sunset :P
Edmond Dantes sails off with Haydee at the end of "The Count of Monte Cristo",his revenge issues behind him,and sure as shooting the series finale of Revenge will be our heroine sailing off to Haiti with Jack,her revenge issue behind her.
The thing is, Dantes sails off ALONE. He got his revenge but he lost his love in progress of that.
Betting that the end of the show will be Amanda sailing off, but Jack will be either dead or has left her by then.
What did Emily say as her last line last night?
"let it play".
(cont'd because char limit) Its not a show about Emily getting some sort of happy ending because, frankly I REALLY doubt that it will ever happen.
Emily has been going significantly darker and darker with every episode and has been adding more and more to the list of law-breaking offenses. I doubt they will leave her kill-free for long. Its a logical step. They just have to make sure to squeeze as much emotional potential from it as possible.
BoredNow,nobody to root for = no reason to watch the show.If our heroine proves no better than her adversaries,BYE BYE REVENGE.
You do not your character to have a moral ground to root for him. You need a character to be relatable to root for him/her.
No one roots for Dexter because of some high ground because the guy has no high ground. People root for him because he is interesting compelling character, for example.
Emily has a relatable background enough to be rooted for but what separates her from cookie-cutter main characters is that she does NOT have a moral high-ground and can go pretty damn dark and cruel.
Emily's capability of doing morally questionable and cruel things is arguably one of the BIGGEST attractors to this show. Nobody watches revenge to see Emily be a good guy. People watch revenge to see Emily be badass and destroy others no matter the costs. Its not a show about Emily getting some sort of happy ending because, frankly I REALLY doubt that it will ever happen.
Charlotte was acting very Victoria-like until she regretted hurting Yonkers.
THIS SO MUCH.
Till her regret and plane crash, she was being very much a mini-Victoria. However right now she can either go mini-victoria or mini-emily.
