We're running down the best and worst of The Vampire Diaries Season 7, and with this being the first season since the departure of Nina Dobrev's Elena Gilbert, we have a lot of thoughts.
The Heretics no doubt breathed some new life into the show, but by the end of the season they were pretty much extinct. What's up with that?
The conclusion of the season actually left us with more questions than answers, so things seem pretty exciting going into The Vampire Diaries Season 8.
Without further ado, here's our full rundown of the best and worst of the past 22 hours of The Vampire Diaries!
Most Surprising Plot Development
Kat Graham killed it this season as Bonnie Bennett, but we didn't expect little Bonbon to go after her friends. Yes, in a crazy turn of events she became the huntress and went after her vampire pals!
Valerie was such a breath of fresh air. She was poised to become the new bitch on the show when it was revealed that she was totally into Stefan Salvatore, but she actually turned into one of the best characters on the show.
Anything do with the Armory. That whole storyline just felt so forced that we couldn't bear to pay any attention to it. It sucks that it's being dragged kicking and screaming into Season 8.
Most Heartbreaking Death
Lily Salvatore was such a great character. She had so many layers and we miss her dearly. Just as she was getting somewhere with her kids, she died saving their lives and it turned out it was all for nothing.
Most Pointless Character
We never thought it would be possible for someone to be more useless than Matt Donovan, but then Julie Plec threw Mary Louise into the mix.
The second episode of the season was vintage Vampire Diaries. It had Caroline all tied up after trying to take out the Heretics. The Heretics kept playing magic tricks on her to piss her off. It was great!
