In this extra episode, I talk about the TwitterGate scandal (lol). Julie Plec snaps, Matt Davis attempts a rescue and fails, but learns lessons, Cadlymack makes a special guest appearance, and I’m scared for Bonnie. To summarize: best episode of the season. Go home, Oak Tree arc. You ain’t got nothin’ on this.
Posted on March 19th, the night of TwitterGate:
Here’s a separate post for it. I’m catching up and currently writing a rant that I’ll post here.
Julie. Can’t she just flat out say she doesn’t like Bonnie or writing for her and that it pains her to even picture her being wanted in a serious manner by any attractive White dude? She makes me sick. And then her cronies will say shit like, “I’m sure there are great things coming for Bonnie! I think there’s something big coming!” Like wake the fuck up, it’s been three damn seasons. Bonnie’s too beautiful and strong for murderous vampires (not that I shipped Kennett or Klonnie, but I probably could have if her ass had even given a sign that she was half-ass interested like she did for Beremy), BUT ELENA AND CAROLINE’S STORIES ARE ABOUT HOW STRONG THEY ARE AND THEY’RE TOO SMART TO FALL FOR LAME ASS FLIRTING VAMPIRES AND YET THEY FALL ANYWAY! Why can’t she just admit it? She can’t stop using the Salvatores to torture Elena’s ass while simultaneously chaining her to them. Caroline. Let’s not even talk about Caroline and the bullshit nonsense that is Klaus wishing he could conjure up a pony for her since she likes horses. But conveniently Bonnie’s too strong and beautiful to even be FLIRTED with by a vampire. Like she doesn’t even have to fall. I’ve seen both Klonnie and Kennett fans say they don’t necessarily need Bonnie to reciprocate. But not only is Bonnie too beautiful and strong to fall, and this is the downright GORGEOUS part of her logic, she doesn’t even get the OPTION to fall because Kol and Klaus and whoever the fuck else JP can manage to NOT pair with Bonnie (unless he’s Black and severely under-developed) just so happen to be simultaneously repelled by her beauty and toughness and fucking fierceness (JP’s favorite adjective to describe Bonnie). That’s why Klaus just HAPPENS to be a dumbass who’s never thought to try to sway Bonnie to his side. Anything to keep him away from Bonnie and to keep people from getting ideas.
Also? Thanks, JP. You pretty much just told me how this Abby storyline is going to go. You killed her for fuck all. I mean it’s not like you’ve managed to do justice to Bonnie’s story as an individual to at least DISGUISE the fact that you’re allergic to writing guys liking and flirting with her. It’s not like you showed an iota of interest in developing their mother-daughter relationship, or showing Emily’s perspective in 1864, or Lucy, or Ayanna, OR THE WITCH MYTHOLOGY!
Thanks, Julie Plec. Thank you.
And here’s the thing. We all know ignorance can be a complex thing. If anyone didn’t know, now you know.
So we might still get Bamon or Bonnie/Vamp or Bonnie/White guy. JP might still give it to us in season 8. But how much would she, in her pettiness, fuck Bonnie’s character up to make it happen? Even if it wasn’t necessary. Would she be able to help it? Because it’s looking increasingly like she just can’t help herself when it comes to her disdain for Bonnie and her fans (no matter what they ship).
