Is Elena really getting a subplot that does not involve the Salvatores and isn’t based on her life being in danger? Cana, Olu, and I wonder as we discuss the new characters heading to Mystic Falls. I question why the new vampire hunter will even phase these kids after what they JUST went through with Alaric, “the ultimate vamp hunter;” we get our preliminary problems with Bonnie’s supposed mentor out of the way, and Olu braces herself for Matt’s storyline.
Quotes From the Podcast:
“Considering the magic on this show is nature-based. And considering the producers have gone this route of ‘There’s no such thing as a monstrous person through and through.’ They always try to humanize their villains and give them a sob story, basically. [….] Why is Dark Magic bad to tap into? And if it is bad to tap into, then why does it exist in this universe where there’s no such thing as a completely bad, evil person who is not redeemable? Why is a person using Dark Magic a bad idea through and through, yet Stefan, Damon, and Klaus are not bad through and through? […] If the main witch character [the only witch character] can’t use Dark Magic, then why do you have it as a concept? […] Why is this power totally bad and should not be messed with, yet Damon can get in Elena’s bed literally whenever he wants no matter what he does, and Klaus just needs a hug and has daddy issues?”-Me
“While Matt certainly did play a part in Elena being on that bridge and dying, he is not 100% culpable. He’s certainly not so culpable that Damon can go around ignoring Meredith in favor of throttling Matt. Not that I want him throttling Meredith either, but his anger in this moment, his revenge scheme or whatever, is tiresome. And if Vicky is not brought up at all, if Damon gets to have the upper hand and Matt apologizes or says anything that suggests he feels sorry to Damon? I will have to turn off the tv. I don’t care if it happens in the first 5 minutes. I will turn off the television.”-Olu
