I don’t believe Esther is the first witch. She’s called the Original witch because she was part of the Original vampires’ family. I think that’s why they had the Black witch there. To show witchcraft did not originate with Esther (or the Black witch). They were not related (I know people will be saying they were). The show just told it in a lazy way.
So these people are saying all of the Native Americans were werewolves?
The show just acknowledged that it prioritizes the super special Salvatore relationship over Elena. Lovely.
