Woohoo! Score one for me! (The Vampire Diaries)  
Spoiler (not huge, but still a spoiler) for the premiere of season of The Vampire Diaries.

Apparently, the premiere is going to feature a time jump and open on Elena's 18th birthday, which nicely settles the guardian issue with all parents dead. Well, I was rereading some older episode posts I wrote, and I said this in my thoughts on The Sun Also Rises:

"So, yeah, who's gonna be the guardian for the 17 and 16 year old Elena and Jeremy? I mentioned Alaric above, but that doesn't really make sense. I'm wondering if after the finale issue is resolved, they will have some time pass, even if only a week or two, and Elena will turn 18, and that pretty much will clear it up."

Nice one!

Feel like making anyone more predictions with that under your belt?

You can be the Vampire Diaries Paul the Octopus!

Well, I think that not only that Damon/Andie are sexing it up in the premiere, but that Damon is doing the compulsion thing again, and that compulsion story we were supposed to get last season will play out the start of this season. Also, we'll get a jealous Elena. And the reason that Damon is using Andie as a distraction again is because of this *thing* with Elena is so there, and they both know it, but because of the situation with Stefan, Damon is really trying to be a good brother. Also? I originally thought that Stefan would be back in MF (but we'd still see him elsewhere) in the mid-season finale. Now I think he'll be back in MF in the first three episodes.

Oh you didn't know it already? I thought you did.

That's why, at a post in tvdbloodstream, when you mentioned that Alaric becoming Elena and Jeremy' s guardian would be not cool, since he's practically Damon's best friend, and he might be a little emotionally reclined to Damon, I replied that I couldn't have said it better myself, because I thought you already knew and thus you were explaining problems of Alaric becoming their guardian might pose.

Yeah, this Elena turning 18 fact, solves the issue of who is going to be their guardian, as Elena is now old enough and I guess she'll be the legal guardian of Jeremy.

Well, I know it now. I just mean that when "The Sun Also Rises" no one knew that, but in my write-up of the episode, I called the possibility of that happening. And even in that first write-up, I wasn't thrilled with the idea of Alaric as their guardian.

sigh. So far my proud moment is "predicting" the style of Damon's room.

GO YOU!!! (y)=D

I'm really glad they went the making Elena turn 18 route because ITA with you about Alaric not making sense. I mean I can get him being there to offer guidance and help out when needed because he obviously genuinely cares for Elena and Jeremy, but I can't really swallow a guy taking legal responsibility for two teenagers because he happened to date their aunt for a short period of time.

Even if he technically is Elena's stepfather, it's TOTALLY a technicality, and there's the whole fact that emotionally he'd totally have Damon's back over Elena's, and that's just wrong in a guardian of her.
