It Had To Be Done (TVD - 6.22)  
Spoilers for one particular scene from last night's episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Loved the episode, and I can't watch the final Damon/Elena scene without getting choked up but it's even better without Stefan and Caroline (once again, sigh) inserted in the scenes. Yeah, yeah, some of Stefan's dialogue fits Damon and Elena nicely, but the scene is still better without them. See?


More thoughts, erm, later. And I promise I will not take a month to write the finale post this time. I will say... HAH! My faith was totally justified. Thank you, show!

ETA: Redid this and did a better job with the music, I think. :)

Indeed it was. Thank you, writers. You made the right call. Now let's see how long this show will actually last with Elena offscreen being Sleeping Beauty. :P

I think they can get a season out of it with the Heretics and Damon dealing with it. Plus, I'm hoping they'll get Nina to come in and shoot some stuff--flashbacks and what-not. We'll see. My faith hasn't been misplaced yet. :)

I'm afraid dancing (or a least so much of it) doesn't do it for me, however much in character it is. :)

I knew it wouldn't for you. I knew. But hopefully the nihilism as promised by the last shot did!

Yes, that's much more the ticket. Although that's not really how I saw that scene last night. I need to see it again, as I seem be swimming against the tide.

I know I haven't been around much these days but I kept following TVD. I think this season has been surprisingly good (for me at least ;)), I liked it much better than the last one. A lot more focus on the characters and their relationships (the Caroline and her mom plot, Damon and Bonnie, Stefan/Caroline and so on).

Also there was a great villain, ie Kai whom I was actually sad to see leave. I know I should've rooted for his death but since I didn't care for Jo at all (I was surprised they did go there though, with her being pregnant and all) I still liked him in the end.

I actually liked Stefan/Caroline intercutting with Damon/Elena because there was a lot in common and it was a callback to 4x07. Also, Stefan's declaration got me all mushy inside and worked well with the dance scene (even if the dancing was slightly over the top, but who cares?). And the show clearly put Stefan/Caroline and Damon/Elena in the same category, ie soulmates and I'm happy with this.

As for Elena, with whom I had a lot of issues for a while, I feel like I've gotten her back these last episodes. This episode was beautiful and had a lot of 3x22 feels.

I'm crying just re watching the dancing scene. I'm going to miss Elena. I do hope we won't have to wait "60" years. I'm still a bit numb. Not too sure what to think of the flash forward at the end.
Looking forward to your post.

The one and only couple
Good job!! I cant't watch this scene without tearing up. But at the same time I am so so happy. Wow. This show.
Looking forward to your post! Have a great time. Cheers!
