Just a heads-up re: Other Side info...  
For some reason, Julie Plec decided to impart some clear-cut information on what is going on with the Other Side on The Originals in last night's episode instead of on, you know, The Vampire Diaries because, I don't know, she lives to continue to prove to the universe that she doesn't give a rat's ass about TVD anymore, I guess.

So here's a cut for those who do watch TO and didn't watch the episode yet and don't want to be spoiled, here's the pertinent dialogue. Klaus said that he spoke with a certain Bennett witch in Mystic Falls and she basically said that the Other Side is disintegrating and that once it's gone for good, all of the other supernatural creatures over there will go poof!, bye-bye forever.

Oh, by the way, this is it. I'm done with The Originals after this episode. I keep trying, and the last two episodes were good, but I'm just so done with this Elijah/Hayley-nonsense (seriously? her almost dying is the most upset he's been in a thousand years?!?!?!) and the complete shatting-upon of the Elijah/Katherine backstory. And the Klaus-Marcel story is basically the opposite of everything I love about TVD. So yeah, I'm done, I just can't anymore.

I'm about 5 or 6 eps behind and I can't quite summon the energy to care. I will get to them one day, I suppose.

So Bonnie is taking calls from Klaus now????!

Personally, I wouldn't bother with the show, but like I said, I'm done with it. Family doesn't really matter. The history and backstory of these characters that was created on TVD doesn't matter. Klaus, admittedly, I like a lot more on TO than I ever did on TVD, but he's really the only character I genuinely like on TO.

So Bonnie is taking calls from Klaus now????!

Apparently. But, yeah, Damon is still the evul!

Obviously, haha. Totally unforgivable!
Arabian: Alaric01arabian on May 4th, 2014 06:19 am (UTC)
To be fair, Bonnie hasn't been all "Damon is still the evul!" in a while, but I'm just bitter about TO in general right now, LOL!

I do not watch TO and do not intend to however checked this post - It seems a bit strange that Klaus would be speaking to Bonnie and get the info about the other side and what is happening? In the last TVD episode Bonnie clearly said that she doesn't know what is happening? Is she really talking ot Klaus and lying to her friends or is Klaus not telling the truth or is he indeed talking to Bonnie and not to anyone else? Perhaps I missed something?
Arabian: Bonnie02arabian on April 30th, 2014 09:50 pm (UTC)
No clue. Honestly, I think this is probably what is happening with the Other Side and Julie doesn't care that she gave away an important piece of information for TVD on TO. It's pretty clear that TO is her baby now and she doesn't care about TVD. How she's treated the Elijah/Katherine situation has made that blindingly obvious.

So I think this is what's happening with the Other Side. It's disintegrating and when it goes, all the supernatural creatures will go poof, bye-bye.

I enjoyed the last episodes and if I was a new viewer, I wouldn't mind, but I am also bugged by the nonexistence of Katherine in Elijahs TO-life.

Actually I found it quite hilarious that Klaus calls Bonnie and even more that she took his call and even explained the situation to him - I thought she didn't know what happened with the other side. Although we don't have an explanation for WHY this is happening right now, do we?
Hm, maybe the new TVD-episode will give us some insight.

That's what it is for me. If it wasn't for being a TVD/K/E fan, I could enjoy TO because it is good, but I get so, well, frankly, pissed off at what I see as disrespect to TVD and the backstory of Elijah and his history with Katherine on there.

As for the whole casual information of the Other Side over on TO when we're up in the dark on TVD where the actual story is playing out... it just feels like such a careless slap in the face to TVD viewers. Ugh.

The destruction of the Elijah/Katherine story bothered me so much I couldn't even give TO a fair shot. I really hate it when a relationship (K/E ) is built up just to be destroyed. Like Elijah wouldn't have come back to Mystic Falls after he heard Katherine was DYING? I think not. I also felt they'd redeemed Katherine a bit (like her giving the cure to Elijah, etc) and they just ignored that and made her worse this season.

Here's a K/E vid (remember the good times, haha).

Exactly. There's just absolutely no way at all.

I also felt they'd redeemed Katherine a bit (like her giving the cure to Elijah, etc) and they just ignored that and made her worse this season.

Well, I think they played that out correctly when Elijah walked away from her and then he was staked by Klaus for the two months after Katherine was first given the cure which would explain why Katherine felt abandoned by him, and thus repudiated any desire to be with him. But it was still shoddily done on HIS end. Because once he was unstaked, he SHOULD have come to see Katherine. And then she could have (not realizing what had happened) done a mean-Katherine like thing, because she IS Katherine and at least put an actual end to them. And I don't know, do SOMETHING, give them some actual real closure, not the bs crap they pulled. Ugh. It just makes me rage.

For me, K/E ended when he left with that goodbye kiss on her forehead and Klaus staked him and he's still in that damn coffin staked and so it's all a tragic misunderstanding on her part thinking he never came back to her, and he doesn't know what happened and won't until he's unstaked.

Thank you for the information. I don't watch TO but this is relevant to their storyline somehow?

Honestly, I just didn't enjoy the pre-pilot that aired during TVD last season. I didn't like Marcel as the villain, at all, and never cared for Hayley. And from what I read about the Elijah/Hayley thing, yes, that does seem a bit......odd. The only reason I would have watched it was for the Klaus-Rebekah relationship. Joseph Morgan and Claire Holt were so good together. And now that she is gone....

Their father, Mikael, showed up and began terrorizing them so Klaus called Bonnie up to find out about the Other Side.

*sigh* I want Rebekah back in Mystic Falls sooooooooo badly. She was horribly wasted and misused and mis-written on TO. UGH, UGH, UGH!
Matt: Ghidorahghidorah15 on May 4th, 2014 02:40 pm (UTC)
Preach it, sister. I'll fully admit to not being an Elijah/Katherine fan per se - I did like the few scenes they had over the course of The Vampire Diaries and thought they could've been a good couple if she'd truly worked to abandon her old self-centered ways, but I don't see it as an OTP or anything. However, I completely agree with you on Rebekah - she belongs in Mystic Falls, not New Orleans. Forget Marcel and Klaus and their endless petty war - she ought to be making happiness with Matt, trading banter with Elena and Damon, and showing Caroline up when it comes to being a classy yet dangerous blonde. ;)
Arabian: Rebekah03arabian on May 5th, 2014 09:07 am (UTC)
Yup, yup, yup. The writing of Rebekah was just horribly tragic on TO. It was really bad. She really was just Klaus and Elijah's sister, and Marcel's love interest. That's all she was. Oh, and she cried. It was horrible. No wonder Claire Holt was ready to skedaddle. Yeah, yeah, she'd been wanting to go for awhile, but I'm sure the awful writing for Rebekah didn't hurt. The fact that at the PaleyFest panel she mentioned Rebekah coming back to Mystic Falls for a handsome quarterback tells you something. Rebekah and Matt WORKED. Rebekah and Marcel? Blech!!

Remind me, when was that held?
Arabian: Rebekah04arabian on May 6th, 2014 05:17 am (UTC)
About a month ago, about 2-3 weeks after her last episode aired.

Who would've thought we'd live to see the day when Klaus would be casually calling Bonnie to chat about the Other Side? lol That seriously cracked me up a little.

I was planning on quitting TO, but there was that very pretty Klaus/Hayley conversation in 1x21 that persuaded me to give this show one more chance. And no, I don't ship them or anyone else on this show for that matter, but I just thought it was a really beautifully written moment & perhaps there is a chance the show will get better.
Arabian: Rebekah02arabian on May 14th, 2014 08:40 am (UTC)
That seriously cracked me up a little.

See, it didn't crack me up. It annoyed me, because it showed the lack of interest that Plec has for TVD. She doesn't care about what makes sense for the TVD characters or the TVD backstory/interactions of the TO characters on TVD.

It's not that I don't think that TO doesn't have great episodes or great moments; it does. It's the utter disrespect and disdain that Plec shows TVD and the Elijah (and Klaus and Rebekah) backstories on that show in order to tell TO stories. I get that TO is a different show; I completely get that, but ONE SEASON in to completely disregard and spit all over so many aspects of characters YOU created? Backstories, relationships YOU created? It's infuriates me on a regular basis when I watch TO. And there are just too many characters I don't care about, actually most of them.
