5.21 - 'Promised Land' (The Vampire Diaries)  
Sorry, busy, busy weekend and another issue. But alas, here it is. Not super long.

My issue being the fact that... STEFAN SALVATORE'S FUCKING HEART WAS RIPPED OUT! I just can't ya'll. I'm still reeling. I know, OBVIOUSLY, that Stefan is going to be fine. Obviously. Because he has second billing and he's freaking Paul Wesley. Right?!?!? So OBVIOUSLY, OBVIOUSLY Stefan is fine. It's just that emotionally my heart is not handling this very well. Ya'll, I cried. OK, not like cried cried. I didn't sob or anything, tears weren't streaming, but I legit had to wipe suspiciously wet eyes away when I went to pick up the phone after watching the episode. And I sat there in stunned disbelief for like ten seconds just staring at the screen alongside Caroline going “No, no, no. Noo. No.”

I mean, you didn't think I was lying or anything when I said all along that I love Stefan, right? Because I do, I love Stefan and I just cannot, will not fathom a Vampire Diaries without my Stefan. This is just not… no. So even though, OBVIOUSLY, they will figure out some play to make this all right and bring Stefan back and fix this all out (and fuck Enzo, I want Alaric to come back, screw that shit, I want Alaric, not Enzo!) I'm still emotionally reeling and all. So, yeah, I'm not quite processing… because, yeah, uhm, fucking Julian ripped my bb Stefan's heart out and that was just fucking wrong!

And he went marbl-y and then Caroline was wailing and crying to God and Stefan and Elena had been talking earlier about how Caroline always sees the brighter side and never gives up and here's Caroline flipping her shit and losing it over losing Stefan and I just am not dealing well, folks. And then he went to Bonnie and she saw him and I just was still in a state of shock because those fuckers killed Stefan. THEY KILLED STEFAN, THOSE BASTARDS! Why are they trying to make me hate any and every character that Michael Trevino plays? Is his piss-poor acting compared to everyone else not enough? His character's general utter uselessness not sufficient? No, he has to go and kill freaking Stefan freaking Salvatore? WHY!?!? WHY!?!?

Takes a deep breath. I just can't do the thinky thoughts. I am sorry, but I do not have it in me. So I will bullet-point.

- Stefan! WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!???!?!?!?!?

- Obviously, he will be fine.

- And when he is fine, we are sooooooooooo getting Stefan and Caroline, because, yeah, Stefan was being all rescue-he-man over Caroline because Julian was going into all attack-mode on her. And honestly, I really thought that Stefan was going to kill Julian, which was going to upset Caroline because then that would REALLY put the kibosh on any chance of resurrecting Tyler forever and ever and thus create a sticky hurdle for Stefan and Caroline to leap over before the coupling begins. So when that fucker ripped Stefan's heart out (WHY!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!), I was truly, genuinely, OMFG!WHY!?!?!?!?!? shocked.

- Also, Stefan and Elena are so completely dunzo. I mean, not only did we get Caroline wailing and gnashing her teeth over Stefan's dead body (WHY?!?!?!??!?!?!, I mean, really, I'm still in shock they even went there, good job, show!), but Elena doesn't even know about it. Nope, she's driving off with Damon, probably having inappropriate, dangerous car sex-shenanigans with him.

- Speaking of… oh, man! We got an exact, replica'd repeat of the staring at each other, rush into each other's arms for a passionate, desperate kiss, word-for-word scene from the last episode just in reverse.

 
 
 

I mean, man! I don't believe it! And I love it…. so hard. They are making it sooooooo obvious that Damon and Elena are THE couple that…

- It's the only thing that makes me worry and get scared that maybe, just maybe, GAH!, maybe Stefan is DEAD-DEAD and is not coming back because that's why they've completely kiboshed the triangle and no, no, no, but I love my Steffy-boo!

- Sigh. :whimpers: Stefan.

- Well, Bonnie finally told someone. There's that.

- I really liked the whole flashback to how they died (the drowning, the shootings) and stuff. That was cool.

- I don't like Liv. I think it's the actress. Luke is so much better. Markos remains awesome. Too bad he wants to completely take out most of our main characters.

- Ooh, back to Damon and Elena, I kinda loved the shot of Stefan and Matt watching Elena be all over Damon like he's everything like ever to her. It was the ‘the ghosts of boyfriends past' for a second there. Heh.

- Michael Trevino really is not a good actor.

- Aww, we got Damon as Mr. Clean back. All bummed about his Ming vase being broken, LOL!

- I kinda wanted Markos to find a note that said “Damon was here” in the cave but I figured that would be a wee out of character as that was after Damon's time, but it still would have been funny. I did like the note he left, though. And, yeah, I do think Markos is awesome, and smart. I honestly think he's the first enemy we've had on the show who truly has Damon scrambling ten steps behind. All the others, Damon figured out quickly and he outsmarted them pretty early on and it was just bad luck and the lameness of the rest of the Scooby gang that screwed up his plans, but Markos, he is smarter than Damon.

- Man, Pam/Carl and her husband-killing ways was pretty cold. Pret-ty cold.

- Aww, Jeremy sorta-ish saved Damon.

- I will never not love when Matt and Jeremy play the role of Damon's minions.

- Heh, I loved that they used the cliché of Elena gussying herself up to hitchhike all sexy and then it didn't work at all because it was Maria, the Traveler, who had freed them.

- I didn't quite get my hoped-for Elena getting that all of them do “bad” things to help each other, but at least we got Stefan getting her to realize that, duh, they're vampires, they are ALL toxic. So I was happy with that. I also liked that everyone was calling them *both* on the fact that they are miserable without one another and prodding them to just kiss and make-up already.

- Heh, Damon calling Caroline his blond, sexy frenemy. Hee!

*Sigh* So many great lines, great moments, great scenes, great acting (minus a few key actors, you know which ones), this really was a fantastic episode, but I'm just heartsore over what happened to my beloved Stefan, I am sick with worry what with this being the television season for killing off main characters and I just don't know what I'm going to do with my spoiler-free self until I know for sure that my boo is safe and that he's coming back to me. Which, obviously, OF COURSE, he is. Of course. Of course. Damnit.

Obviously.

How is Damon going to react when he finds out? I know how Elena will. But Damon? I just can't even imagine. I expect it will rip *my* heart out. GEEZ! *Double sigh* One more episode. Wow.

"Holy shit, Stefan!" was definitely my main reaction after the episode ended. Just... wow.

It was becoming clear over the course of the episode that maybe there really wasn't any way out of the spell except for the death of one of the dopplegangers, but I still gasped when Stefan got his heart ripped out.

And, with Caroline... the body of her past love killing the potential of her future love... just made that moment feel even more tragic, because Stefan and Caroline have just been feeling so perfect for each other recently (even more than usual!).

Aaah. I'm not spoiled either, so I have no clue how they're going to fix all this (but they must! Stefan can't be For Real dead!).

I loved everyone calling out Damon and Elena on how much happier they are when they're together. So true. <3

I definitely agree with you on Luke >> Liv. I think both on an acting level and on a character-construction level.

"Holy shit, Stefan!" was definitely my main reaction after the episode ended. Just... wow.

Hah! "Holy shit" were literally the first words out of my mouth when I called my friend. Wow definitely.

It was becoming clear over the course of the episode that maybe there really wasn't any way out of the spell except for the death of one of the dopplegangers, but I still gasped when Stefan got his heart ripped out.

But I still couldn't believe they went there and killed Stefan. I mean, STEFAN! I am still kinda in shock and trying to wrap my brain around it and while I'm 99.999999999% sure that they'll figure a way out of it, yeah, there's a teeny part of me that is wondering if he's gone and I'm like WTF!?

And, with Caroline... the body of her past love killing the potential of her future love... just made that moment feel even more tragic, because Stefan and Caroline have just been feeling so perfect for each other recently (even more than usual!).

I KNOW!!!!

Aaah. I'm not spoiled either, so I have no clue how they're going to fix all this (but they must! Stefan can't be For Real dead!).

I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

I definitely agree with you on Luke >> Liv. I think both on an acting level and on a character-construction level.

And it's weird because Liv has been around longer, but Luke just works so much better. If only one can stick around (if either sticks around) please, please, please let it be Luke even if we are more male than female heavy, I just like Chris Borchu so much more than Penelope Mitchell and Luke more than Liv by far.

Well, that was unexpected. Just like you I'm spoiler free so I cannot imagine what will happen now? Stefan cannot be dead dead. As sad and heartbreaking it was he must/will come back. I cannot imagine that this would be permanent. I was staring at the screen in shock when that happened. I just couldn't believe it. But that makes me think that he will come back. Surely they would not take out one of the 3 main characters just like that. Now they will bring him back together with the others. To refresh the group of characters (Alaric????)
Maybe wishful thinking.

Agree with all your points on DE. No need to elaborate. It couldn't be clearer. However just a little teeny tiny thought - what if Stefan's dead and his resurrection could somehow restart the damn love triangle? Just for the sake of it? I just want it over and hope for final nice build up towards the series finale next season. I just hope it is just little insecure part of my brain being silly.

If anything I hope that Stefan's death and his hopefully possible resurrection is a start of Steroline. Maybe his death would be catalyst for Caroline and Stefan to realize their feelings fully. Caroline's reaction gave away her devastation.

Through all the drama this episode Damon remained cool and snarky. Though I was surprised that he didn't go crazy over missing Elena. She could potentially die. He did capture the banker guy to get some info but was pretty collected. Maybe that is how he operates.

So what now. Really have not idea. If Bonnie's lost her last way of saving them all I cannot think what could be next. I know obviously the writers found a way. But this makes me think of some crazy cliff hanger till next season starts.

Loved the song that played over Stefan's death. It was really powerful.

OK I have to mention DE - that last scene was perfect. Just like you said. I just wonder now how Stefan's death will affect their dynamics. Both will be devastated when they find out. Now knowing that the other side might be no more soon will make it more scary for them.

Oh did I pick up that if they are out of city limits they are no longer threatened by dying? (vampires?) Or does the magic apply everywhere? Because if so then every free walking Vampire would lose the magic of walking in the sun at the time as them and then of course all of them around the world would die. This is the part where I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding.

Thank you for your write up. I was anxious to read it. I knew you would be sad over Stefan. So am I actually...I think the element or surprise made it even harder for me.
Arabian: Damon05arabian on May 11th, 2014 04:13 am (UTC)
Well, that was unexpected.

To say the least!

Just like you I'm spoiler free so I cannot imagine what will happen now? Stefan cannot be dead dead.

No, he cannot!

Agree with all your points on DE. No need to elaborate. It couldn't be clearer. However just a little teeny tiny thought - what if Stefan's dead and his resurrection could somehow restart the damn love triangle? Just for the sake of it?

Then Elena would have been there when he died. If that was the point of it then Elena would have been there when he died so that we would have seen her react to his death.

If anything I hope that Stefan's death and his hopefully possible resurrection is a start of Steroline.

Yup, which is why we saw HER react to his death.

Maybe his death would be catalyst for Caroline and Stefan to realize their feelings fully. Caroline's reaction gave away her devastation.

Yup, yup, yup.

Through all the drama this episode Damon remained cool and snarky. Though I was surprised that he didn't go crazy over missing Elena. She could potentially die.

We saw it on his face when he had the remembered shot and the blood appeared from his wound from his human death. As he walked out the door, you saw it on his face, the realization about him, about Stefan, about Elena. He was hit with the reality of what was happening.

So what now. Really have not idea. If Bonnie's lost her last way of saving them all I cannot think what could be next. I know obviously the writers found a way. But this makes me think of some crazy cliff hanger till next season starts.

I'm freaking out NOW because we have the episode next week, but I know I'll be fine after next week cuz there's no use freaking out with a whole four month wait. I'm weird that way, LOL!

Loved the song that played over Stefan's death. It was really powerful.

Agreed. Really strong. It grabs me every time I see that part.

OK I have to mention DE - that last scene was perfect. Just like you said. I just wonder now how Stefan's death will affect their dynamics.

I don't think it will affect them as in their relationship, but yeah, devastation indeed. I think that Elena, while she will be sad, will wind up having to be there more for Damon and then find herself there for Caroline and realizing that there are those feelings there. We'll see.

Both will be devastated when they find out. Now knowing that the other side might be no more soon will make it more scary for them.

Oh, yeah.

Good episode!

Alas, my heart was not moved by Stefan’s death. I wasn’t spoiled for it exactly, but the Tumblr crowd strongly suspected it was coming so it wasn’t a big surprise. That’s said, I don’t know why I feel nothing at all, I do like the character (the TV version at least) when I don’t want to throttle him myself. Perhaps it’s because I know he’ll be back*.

* Not a spoiler, I don’t know this, but it’s pretty likely.

I did lol a bit at Damon randomly changing his t-shirt half way through for no reason. Did wardrobe suddenly realise that they needed to show up the blood stain better?

There’s one ep of the season to go, ::sniff::

See, that's part of why I stopped reading tumblr, they take the synopses and pics and interviews and everything and rip everything apart and spec it all to death so strongly so that if they aren't spoiled, they take away surprises too. That's what happened in season 03.

That was kinda what I was saying that so impressed me though. Even though I know he's coming back (almost surely), I am so emotionally invested that it still got to me.

I did lol a bit at Damon randomly changing his t-shirt half way through for no reason. Did wardrobe suddenly realise that they needed to show up the blood stain better?

Well, there actually was a reason. Damon would have just got finished with carrying a bunch of comatose, dirty, stinky bodies from a muggy, dirty cave and we all know what a stickler for cleanliness Damon Salvatore is. I can COMPLETELY believe that, yes, he went and changed his clothes. Sure he had the help of his minions, but he no doubt did a bunch of the heavy lifting himself too. So he probably changed once they got back to the boarding house before he began directing the moving of the bodies. (I'm pretty sure that's when Damon changed.) There might have even been a cut scene. It's not like we haven't been treated to random shots of Damon (and Stefan and Tyler, etc.) changing shirts before just to offer up gratuitous shirtless shots, so it makes sense that they would have written it in, but it got cut for time.

There’s one ep of the season to go, ::sniff::

I know.

I can't help myself, I want to be where people are discussing stuff and if that means I am a bit spoiled so be it. It isn't usually a problem, I blubbed throughout the Black Beauty film and I've known that story since I was 5.

I have now seen the episode properly again and I realise now that Damon had to change because Enzo made a hole in his black shirt. I still maintain the only reason he was wearing something so light after was for the bloodstain.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on May 14th, 2014 11:27 am (UTC)
I know what you mean, it is fun to discuss and (a) if I didn't like going completely spoiler/spec free SO MUCH with TVD and (b) if tumblr wasn't a cesspool of negativity, I'd probably be there too.

Oh, yeah, the blood showed up better definitely and I'm sure that was totes deliberate, but at least there was a truly legitimate reason for the shirt-change. Two of them in fact. :)

I watched bits again and now I know that the magic will be broken in the town first and it will soon spread everywhere so this means that all magic created by witches would eventually disappear everywhere. So the bunch are for now trying to outrun it and look for solution in the meantime if I understand.
Arabian: Damon05arabian on May 10th, 2014 09:33 am (UTC)
Yes, you understand correctly. OK, good, so strike that part of my reply to you then, LOL!
tj2013tj2013 on May 10th, 2014 09:53 am (UTC)
Yes to all you wrote!
Gosh, I was sitting there, open-mouthed, just thinking No. No. No. They did it. They killed Stefan freaking Salvatore. No way.
In retrospect his last glimpse of Damon and Elena is just heartbreaking.
I am hoping (please, TVD gods, pretty please) that they find a way to bring him back, but I am totally clueless on how the writers are going to pull that off. I am sick with worry, too.
Are we going to see the scene where Damon hears his brother is dead? Geez, and after him telling Stefan to not only bring Elena home safely, but to Stefan to come home safely too. After all the brothers are in a good place together, Damon and Elena have accepted they belong together, and now THAT? I am still reeling.
I even dreamt about it last night. Hmph. This show is making me an emotional wreck. But hell, yeah, I love it.
The episode overall, the lines, everything was perfect.
One more week. And then? And then? Geez.

I KNOW!! WE HAVE TO HAVE THAT SCENE! It will be so painful and beautiful and awful and amazing!

Yeah, me too. BUT STEFAN MUST BE RESURRECTED!

Well, not Trevino's acting, but yeah, other than that... YES!

I expect no less. Caroline Dries has co-written the episode and Chris Grismer is directing, as far as I know. It's gonna be heartwrenching.

One more season..............
Uh huh, right. But what about the cliffhanger at the end of next episode? Another 5 months of hiatus. Can't think about that right now... still in shock.
I will be watching the finale together with a friend (we are doing this since Season 3 finale) - so after that we can have coffee (since we watch it in the morning) or bourbon. Or bourbon in coffee, heh.
Arabian: Damon13arabian on May 11th, 2014 11:36 am (UTC)
I'm very happy that Dries is writing and Grismer is directing. :D :D

what about the cliffhanger at the end of next episode?

I'm weird about finale cliffhangers. I have a mild freak-out and then I'm totally fine until the week or so before the show returns. I'm pretty chill during the summer cuz it's such a long wait. :shrugs:

tj2013tj2013 on May 13th, 2014 10:19 am (UTC)
Ehm, I do have another question, maybe you can help me:
what did Stefan mean when he said to Elena that humans go to therapy, but vampires get a pass? Pass about what? Did he mean they go on a killing spree or do something violent and it's kinda ok and they have to accept it? What do you think?
Arabian: Damon05arabian on May 27th, 2014 08:21 am (UTC)
Sorry, missed this comment. I think he meant something along the lines of what I said way back a while ago in that it's in their natures. You don't punish a lion for hunting and eating its prey because that is its nature. So when a vampire does hunts, kills, etc., well, that is actually a vampire's natural instinct, so when they do those things, they are following their natural instincts so they get a pass. Humans, it's not their natural instinct, so they have to work through it. Vampires can't work through it, it's who they are.

I think. :shrugs:

I knew I shouldn't go anywhere. I went out of town for mere three weeks and see what happened! LOL

How do they dare to kill Stefan now that we were getting such great Damon/Stefan stuff?? *continues to sob* I still can't believe it happened, even if there is a pretty good chance it's not permanent *sigh* But as sad as I am, I can't help being completely in love with the poetry of Caroline being the sole witness and Stefan, in a way, dying in Caroline's defense as opposed to dying in defense of Katherine. Now we only need Damon to die in Elena's defense and the poetic equation will be complete... AND THE SUMMER RUINED lol

I'd argue Markos isn't smarter than Damon. It's just that with other villains Damon was able to obtain the necessary info and figure things out pretty quickly. With Markos he just didn't have a way to obtain enough information to outsmart him and it's more luck than intelligence that got Markos thus far. IMHO ^^

I'm losing my mind overanalyzing 5x01 in order to predict what will happen in 5x22! haha My random ideas include:
- a Damon saving Elena's brother in 5x01 / Elena saving Damon's brother in 5x22 parallel
- Elena wondering in 5x01 how their "long-distance relationship" is going to work makes me think that Damon and Elena get separated in the finale, that one of them will ~die or that both of them will ~die, but one of them will stay on the Other Side and the other will be sucked into oblivion
- seriously, mutual ILYs in 5x01 can only mean that DE get separated at the end of 5x22

And please tell me that the only way to come back from the Other Side will NOT be to come back human! *whines* lol

I missed your posts so much!!! ♥

Yup, it's kinda like when Damon told Katherine in "Memory Lane" that he was dying for someone worthy of it now, you know. *sigh*

GAH! NO! Don't even say that! What is it with you and your obsession with Damon dying?! Geez!

With Markos he just didn't have a way to obtain enough information to outsmart him and it's more luck than intelligence that got Markos thus far. IMHO ^^

I can see that, but I still think that Markos is smarter. We can agree to disagree on this one. It's not like Damon doesn't have everything else going on over Markos, LOL!

I'm losing my mind overanalyzing 5x01 in order to predict what will happen in 5x22! haha My random ideas include:

Hah! Good idea.

- a Damon saving Elena's brother in 5x01 / Elena saving Damon's brother in 5x22 parallel

Ooh! Good one. Yeah, I can see that. OR.... Jeremy saying Stefan!

- Elena wondering in 5x01 how their "long-distance relationship" is going to work makes me think that Damon and Elena get separated in the finale, that one of them will ~die or that both of them will ~die, but one of them will stay on the Other Side and the other will be sucked into oblivion

HUSH YOUR MOUTH!

- seriously, mutual ILYs in 5x01 can only mean that DE get separated at the end of 5x22

SERIOUSLY, HUSH YOUR MOUTH!

And please tell me that the only way to come back from the Other Side will NOT be to come back human! *whines* lol

Why would that be a bad thing? I wouldn't mind if Stefan was human, I mean Elena is a vampire now, so the only reason that would be an issue would be if Elena was still human and it was a way of re-hooking those two up.

OF COURSE I'm going to read & reply to all your other posts!!! Are you kidding me??? I live for them!!!! ^^ I just need a little bit, er, quite a bit of time to catch up ;)

haha I guess my obsession with Damon dying stems from the fact that it's an inevitable storyline & I just want it to happen already, so we can have it over with! LOL

Nah, why would Jeremy went out of his way to save Stefan? He's never even played video games with him.

I wouldn't mind Stefan becoming human either! In fact, it'd be a welcomed twist. I just wouldn't want that to happen to Damon & Elena.

A part of me hopes that both of them will end up trapped TOGETHER on the Other Side or in some other kind of an afterlife space, but that would just be too nice, wouldn't it? So it's rather unlikely...

haha I guess my obsession with Damon dying stems from the fact that it's an inevitable storyline & I just want it to happen already, so we can have it over with! LOL

I don't know why you think it's inevitable. I just don't think it is because I think they (the producers) realize that it's such an empty threat because they know that everyone knows that there is simply no way that Damon is going to actually die since Ian Somerhalder is NOT leaving the show before the six seasons are up. It AIN'T gonna happen. Besides they already did the "Damon's gonna die" thing at the end of season 02. They already went to that well, no reason to go there again.

Nah, why would Jeremy went out of his way to save Stefan? He's never even played video games with him.

Hee.

I just wouldn't want that to happen to Damon & Elena.

I wouldn't mind that as a story for Damon and Elena personally, but I know I'm in the minority there.

A part of me hopes that both of them will end up trapped TOGETHER on the Other Side or in some other kind of an afterlife space, but that would just be too nice, wouldn't it? So it's rather unlikely...

Well, as I said in my response in my other post, I think that Damon and Elena are essentially going to kill themselves to GO to the OtheR Side to bring Stefan back, so, maybe they'll wind up getting trapped over there.

"Besides they already did the "Damon's gonna die" thing at the end of season 02. They already went to that well, no reason to go there again." - Well, they went there EVERY SINGLE season finale so far. In 1x22 Stefan got Damon out of the burning building, then we had 2x22, obviously. In 3x22 Evilaric was about to kill Damon + there was a threat of the whole bloodline dying and in 4x23 we had a werewolf bite again. So I'd say the writers are almost as obsessed with Damon dying as me! lol!

True, true, every season, and this time they went there all the way. Let's hope that season 06, they decide to NOT go that route, LOL!

Um, I was going to say things about this episode, but I don't even remember what happened in this episode anymore. STEFAN IS DEAD. THEY KILLED MY STEFAN! I DON'T EVEN CARE WHAT ELSE HAPPENED. NO. I CANNOT. AND CAROLINE'S SOBS ARE MY SOBS. WHAT EVEN NO.

So basically I agree with like everything you wrote. It follows my thinking. I have to go watch the next episode now because STEFAN IS DEAD!
