Please can we stop comparing BOnnie to willow?
Willow was well developed character and the build up to dark side was gradual and awesome from the very first second we met her.
Bonnie is characterless plot device.
YESm YESSSSSSSSSSSSS YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
OUAT as well as REvenge is pretty much THE BEST things on tv right now, alongside mentalist.
Was there actually anything to be excited over that entire hour...
Elena getting drowned was very enjoyable. One just has to imagine that she dies there permanently and the show ends. :)
I don't care about Elena enough to want to see her into a vampire.
THIS SO MUCH.
Its too late. That should have been the FIRST turning we have seen. Now after, what 50? humans turning vampires situations they finaly decide to turn her? What was the point of S2 and S3? They could have turned her in the end of S1 and that would actually have had some emotional impact.
Now people despise miss cardboard far too much to care about her turning.
Not to mention that Book-Elena's NORMAL life was built up and interesting. We saw her ties to the world and WHAT SHE LOST. we CARED. we do not with miss cardboard.
How can she be Bella Swan when The Vampire Diaries series was written before Twilight? She turns into a Vampire in the Books too
BECAUSE BOOK ELENA IS NOT TV SHOW ELENA. Entirelly different character. Book Elena is original blair waldorf, original cordelia chase, original buffy summers and all of those other self-assertive well developed female protagonists. TV SHOW Elena is a bland cardboard box with no personality.
Also her vampire turning in the books was awesome. It developed DE relationship dynamics because of the guilt Damon felt for her turning. Then again damon was not a wussy like the tv show one.
Seriously what was the point of NOT turning her in the end of season one? What was the point of S3 and S2? No point at all. Both of those seasons did nothing to the triangle, nor Elena's character.
Oh wait, it did a lot to elena's character. It made majority of fandom despise her.
This would have been way more effective if we did not have what 6?10?20? vampire turnings before this and if we cared at all about miss cardboard.
The only question remains is - HOW WORSE can this show get next season? I for one, am fed up with this already and won't be back.
But FInale...finale was a failure of NBC's HEROES level.
Overall looking back, I still question on why the hell did they not turn Elena in the end of season one? Because ultimately both S2 and S3 were entirely pointless downward ride towards mediocrity till the point when show was not even enjoyable as trainwreck.
Had she turned then, before her character degraded and we had thousands of other turnings, it might have been interesting? Now? Sorry show, too little too late. You just proved with this episode that you do not know how to handle your own characters.
Overall I will certainly won't miss this show at all and the only regret is that i got out of it way too late, with memories of the GOOD QUALITY TVD stained by most of S3 mediocrity.
A lot of us hoped that after horrible finale something would change - steffie was supposedly bad and all that stuff and "nothing was the same" ...sadly S3 was worse. The show managed to waste all the "twists" of S2 finale, making the main trio even more unlikeable and bland, wasted perfect good villain, Klaus turning him into wussy and introduced a bunch of characterless "originals".
Whats worse, S3 had absolutely no direction. Every episode we would return to exact same point of story, bringing nothing new to the table. TVD was a headless chicken, running around the farm in all directions and bumping into the walls.
