Let's make this example to understand Castiel.(i liked his development in fifth season. pretty much only redeeming part of that snoozecalypse)
Writer decides to write story about santaclaus.
Episode One: Santa gives toys to children.
Episode 2: Santa stops bank robbery and visits church.
Episode 3: Santa is seen with a hooker completely drunk sniffing cocaine. No reason given.
Episode 4: Santa decides to conquer the world and kills the children. No reason given.
And yes, a HUGE problem with the show afrter third season is that Writers start planning every episode with this line:"okay so sam is wrong and misguided and dean is right and then..."
Not to mention that Whatever was left of a gray morality setting is completely gone.
I pretty much hate this show nowadays...
It used to be REALLY good. First three seasons that is(And third season was the height of the show). Kripke had balls back then. The show had badass females(Season3 Ruby is still one of my favorite characters), good character development, mysteries.
Nowadays its a shadow of its former self. Writers no longer have any spines and bend to every whim of rabid fanbase and death? Its even more cheap than on heroes, because half the cast can put you back together by the snap of their fingers...
Character development got stuck in the "let's discuss our crappy lives" mode for at least 3 seasons already and there's total of zero of character growth. Half of main cast(notably Sam) is HORRIBLY neglected and NOTHING ever seems to have any longterm consequences nowadays.
The show tries to excite but falls flat on its face(seriously, what they tried to do with Castiel was the most ridiculous thing ever and best example of term "character asassination") and 99% of every season ends up being a completely pointless stretch out (seriously, any point of purgatory? any point in grandpa jerk and mcjackasses? any point in wall story? Nope).
What used to be a nice ride turned into a cheap and plotless excuse to have two relative young and pretty men ocassionally loose clothes, ignite slash fans and launch some puns that stopped being funny such a long time ago...
With DE its atleast built up, the hyped Kat addition into the figure was what? Kat obsessing over Stefan and both brothers trying to kill her? That was the big addition J.Plec hyped so much? Where's tension? Where's Stefan showing at least abit of conflict on who he actually loves? NOt here...
As for relationships:
The beauty in complexity was that most of those dots had pretty much equally as important attention and equally important impact upon storyline.
TVD Show so far does not really have a triangle. Thankfully it is sort of starting to build it up...adding bonnie now would be tragic mistake. Adding bonnie ever would be tragic mistake.
I would not say TVD'slove triangle is complicated. BTVS had a wholy lot more complicated thing...I would not even call it a geometrical figure in that show...
As with TVD,
You have basic set up of Kat/Damon/Elena/Stefan/Kat and it should stay that way. And even now TVD struggles to handle it and fails somewhat(kat part of figure is neglected, d/e part is neglected, etc). Adding someone else into this would only cheapen and simplify the current love rectangle.
Adding bonnie into this would be as useful as five legged dog would be...
Still cry over Madeline's death in Nikita (the original tv show, not the soulless copy airing right now). It was...quick, cold, calculated and reactionless, like death was always about in that show, but the moment her body is brought out of the Room and Operations bends to kiss her last kiss always gets to me. The Man With No Expression was completelly broken down by that moment...and there's something really sad in the atmosphere that gets to me...but oh well... that show always had style...
Damon/bonnie has NO CHEMISTRY.
Bonnie/Damon had ZERO chemistry. Friends? I could see and even then there should be a considerate amount of time before bonnie even looks at Damon as person(The guy chews on your neck, is the reason your granma is dead and you forgive him in month? No.)
"omg they should totally make Giles and Buffy hook up! They never(almost) really hurt each other, never killed each other's relatives and do not bicker!"
this above is as absurd as bamon sounds : )
And unless Elena somehow morphs into Buffy, I can't see Elena being involved with someone she has no feelings at all for.
Its typical teen show riding on the whole twilight train.
Its horribly dull re-adaptation with NOTHING that could feel fresh. Bland stereotype characters placed in teenager school drama plot.
Its passable for teenagers coming back from school to watch while they munch french fries or whatever they eat nowadays.
But its nothing more than that.
Its not worth attention for following.
TVD belongs to similar cattegory, except that TVD has some originality and is generally about entertainment. Plot twists and other things like Damon and Katherine make it worth watching, but still nothing too deep, lots of flaws, but better than generic teenager drama teen wolf is..
Its a triangle rule.
D/E can't be mentioned without S/E
K/D without K/S.
B/D without D/E.
And so on.
You can't just "neglect' one part of triangle :)
I certainly hope it won't get rushed, just to get over it all...
