Right, back to topic.. which is plotholes...

 

Am I the only one still gnawing my teeth together at Esther being such a bad mum she can't even spell her kids' names? Gods, if the writers can't even google 'Rune translation' and spend five minutes getting it straight, it's no wonder they didn't bother with all the other plot holes! Such a lack of effort is just depressing. Speaking of, since when were witches connected to plants anyway? If they are, why did it take Bonnie seventeen years to realize that being a living fertilizer might not be normal? Oh, don't get me started on Bonnie! It's funny how Elena can at least be described with words like 'caring' and 'selfless'. Bonnie, however, is 'useful'... and maybe 'horny'. For Jeremy. And that's it. There's a huge hole where her personality should be.

 

Another thing is that vampires can grow immune to vervain. How so? They're frozen. Dead. Unchanging. Their hair and nails grow, I'm gonna guess back to the length it was when they died, but that's it. Immunity is your body adapting to something, but they cannot adapt, because THEY'RE FROZEN. Therefore, the only immunity they should be able to achieve, would be healing quicklier as they grew older. But no, apparently healing power is selective too, just like their hearing and strength(and everything else). Their lives must be so confusing, no wonder they're all having identity and existential crisises!

Considering most of her kids names did not even START in viking language and instead has hebrew roots, not surprising.

Writers most likely just went "hey let's make it all sound viking-ish" without putting any thoughts into it. 

Hell, the whole "flashback" is fun of anachronisms like Klaus using word FUN, which WAS NOT INVENted or even commonly known till shakespearean times.

Show does not seem to know on if they are alive or dead. One Season someone implies that vampire hearts do not beat, the other that they do , for example.

Don't bother with the language mess. It makes no sense. Having the Originals speak English I understand - can't ask Jomo, Daniel, Claire,Sebastian Roche and what's-her-name Alice to learn perfect Norse overnight, but their language in the flashbacks was WAY too modern. 'Relax, dad, we were just having fun.' It's insulting our intelligence.

If Elijah can speak like a proper, old-timey gentleman in modern times, why couldn't his siblings speak properly in ancient times? (Don't even get me started on Kol, who'd been dead for 100+ and yet somehow took less than a week or so to learn all the slang. AND FINN)

I think that they do. In 2x19 Elena is about to check Elijah's pulse.(girl. he's grey, dead and not moving. guy goes not have a pulse!)

I don't think it ever said she got horribly drunk - just that she skipped family night and got stranded. However I don't really see why both of her parents had to come and pick her up - surely just her mum or just her dad could have done it? It would have saved at least one of their lives. And on that subject, does it ever mention how they drove off the bridge? Matt and Elena drove off trying to avoid Rebekah, but what happened the night her parents died? The weather was fine, and under those circumstances it doesn't seem likely that they would have had an accident. I don't think this was ever really cleared up.

Stefan was in Chicago and had gone all ripper because Lexi had helped him and then left, then Damon convinced Stefan to go all Ripper again at Zachariah's funeral, when Stefan killed Marianna Lockwood.

I am pretty sure that was already the case when I dropped this shit show.

Oh by the way Heroes is getting a reboot in 2015!

Not a reboot. Continuation.

I know of this and weep.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
