Sadly you are correct. Julie is to TVD what the other producer (what is it Kreisberg who fanned the olicity flames) was to Arrow and unless they do something drastic I think Arrow is doomed too. Of course this is the last season of TVD I am surprised they gave it an additional season. Julie made the show about Nina (who is a fantastic actress) so where would they go?
Lucifer is too obvious (plus if he is a POC that will really cause a firestorm).
But every show doesn't have to turn into a Soap. Unless they turn everything upside down and have Abraham and Jackson become a couple.
According to Jeff Davis the figure that the Dread Doctors unveiled was the Hellhound against some (vague) figure which is suspect has something to do with the creations of the Dread Doctors. Also some people don't understand that the "resurrection" fluid only works on chimeras so Alison won't be back (for God's sake she quit the show). I don't think the Nemeton is a gateway to the "Underworld" whatever that may be. It was ingenious to invoke the Wild Hunt, an epic mythology of the supernatural. That should have been our first clue that Parrish was somehow involved. And shippers beware the connection between Parrish and Lydia may only be on the supernatural level as their "jobs" are connected. The most significant resurrection of the episode was that of Scott who apparently will come back totally changed as result of being dead for 15 minutes.
The ultimate soapy irony would be for Ben to kill his father.
You are so right which is the fatal flaw in the show. I fear that they will pander to the oldtimers who want Bope (yawn) on the other hand the new Ciara might become a patricidal maniac which will certainly stir things up.
I know - can we predict that Joe will somehow turn Sam back again? And WTF with Big Jim?
This was very satisfying. Sometimes you begin and end a series as a complete product. Yes, it was really the Astronauts Wives Club. At least we didn't end with the Coke commercial. I suspect Aquarius will cover this era more in depth on a wider range of subjects.
I like the show but I am sorry I have no faith that Joss and Calista have the combined brains to figure out who dun it!
So I no longer care about anybody except perhaps Hunter who managed to recover and Norrie who finally grew some balls. I still think the dog is going to be the decisive character.
