In this episode, we fact check what was said about the sire bond in 3.06 vs what they “revealed” in 4.08. We wonder why sire bonds happen in some cases (twice in Damon’s case with Charlotte and Elena) and not others (Katherine with Damon and Stefan). We cover Elena’s dismissive words to Caroline and Bonnie. And we talk about how Expression and Dark Magic could have been okay on this show.
Quotes of the Podcast: “What story are they trying to tell with Damon and Elena that needed to take four seasons? It didn’t need to take four seasons. This whole siring complication is just to try to get around the fact that, honestly? They probably should’ve started dating in season 2.”-Olu
“There’s a part of me, actually all of me, that feels like it wasn’t worth it. We get three seasons of buildup, and the time comes, and they add in this thing. They add an outside force to make it happen.”
“Stefan’s been nice. He’s done good deeds. But selfless?”-Olu
“From a character standpoint, from a writing standpoint, what were those flickering lights supposed to do? ‘Cause it looked like she was just going to make them flicker for eternity.”
