So it is official, HELL has frozen over. Really it has, I promise. I always said that the day I, Nancy Smith (yes, that is actually my real name which is the 2nd most popular name and only 2nd to the name Mary Smith which is my sisters name :p) watched that lame ass show on the CW called the Vampire Diaries that I would be either dead, in a catatonic state and couldn’t help it or Hell would have frozen over. Well I am obviously NOT dead or in a catatonic state, because I am typing…duh, so Hell obviously is frozen and crystallized because I not only watched it (all seasons and am up to date) but I LOVED it. People, can I just ask one thing?
What the fuck is wrong with me? OK maybe that was a loaded question but seriously I mean first Smallville and now Vampire Diaries, how could I miss these two shows that everyone and their dog has raved about and I am just like “oh yeah whatevs man, I will watch it on demand or whenever”, never really intending to watch it or with the Vampire Diaries I totally put my foot down. After Twilight, now please do not laugh at me, I could not imagine watching another show about vampire love and their being a love triangle and everything ugh, I just couldn’t deal with that all over again. I mean Twilight was alright if you could stomach KSpew, all you had to do is concentrate on all the pretty and I just figured that The Vampire Diaries was more of the same, shitty acting masked in pretty faces and teen drama. Don’t get me wrong you have plenty of that (pretty and drama that is), I mean c’mon this IS the CW…they aim to please BUT the actors can act!!!! Something that Catherine Hardwick the director for Twilight forgot to take into consideration when she was casting her female lead role.
Why, OH Why wasn’t Nina Dobrev available to play Bella Swan (either that or they could have just killed off KStew’s Bella and put us out of our misery right away :D )? I can see such a different outcome for the saga, aside from the shitty writing it started out with at least the acting would have been worthy of the billions it raked in and all the media attention and there would have been NO ROBSTEN!!!! That in itself or the fact we would have never had to hear jack shit about Kristen Stewart or see any of her shitty movies would have been worth ANYTHING they had to pay Nina but that is all history and I am getting way off track.
I am not going to go into a great deal about the origins of the story except as everyone knows it was a wildly popular young adult book series that made it to the TV by L.J. Smith and it was based around the Salvatore brothers who are vampires and Elena Gilbert who is not. Seriously is there a young adult book series that isn’t coming to a TV or movie screen near you
anytime soon? We had the Twi saga which was just so so compared to the Mortal Instruments (City of Bones), Beautiful Creatures based on the Caster Chronicles, Warm Bodies and I am just waiting for the Uglies book series and we will be all set.
So since this has already said it is going to be chalk full of spoilers I am just going to go ahead and ruin it for anyone (the 3 people) in the world that haven’t seen the show yet. Elena has a mushy relationship with Stefan and they are all kissy kissy and it is all really sweet and boring but you can see she really is hot after Damon but won’t allow herself to have such feelings because she is a good girl (yeah right) so she wavers emotionally back and forth between the two
never really giving in to Damon but then something terrible happens…she dies. Oh what to do, what to do. WAIT, they are vampires; they can make her one too!!! So they did, then all the sudden she is climbing all over Damon’s shit and can’t get enough of him which to me makes way more sense
because between the two of them he is seriously hotter, in a smoldering bad boy kinda way and just happens to be her real life love. THIS Twilight and Robsten fans translates well onto screen not forced and weird like your beloved golden couple. This is the difference between a real life loving couple and a made up all in your warped freakish heads because you can’t live without a real life Bella and Edward relationship.
So at some point Elena’s Brother died, they were on this adventure crusade or whatever you wanna call it to go and get the remains of this really bad ass nasty dude Sirus that Bonnie was tricked into
digging up I think (God please correct me if I am wrong I watched all episodes in like a week). Elena was so shattered that Damon told her to turn her emotions off, I guess vampires have the ability to do that (what I nice little trick) and now she has and has literally turned into quite the little
monster bitch. She has done everything but eat the Prom queen which she actually attempted to do but was stopped by Bonnie and her witchy powers. Oh did I forget to mention Bonnie was a witch? Yeah and there are Werewolves too, and werewolf hybrid mixed with Vamps, but we will get there.
Now they have Elena locked away to try and force her to switch her
humanity back on but being a stubborn little bitch I have a feeling that Stefan and Damon might be waiting a little longer than they anticipated….so moving on to Bonnie.
Bonnie was Elena’s best friend who found out she was a witch quite by accident. She has pretty much only used her witchy powers for good until a professor found a way to exploit her curiosity
and her wanting to learn to control her powers for good to benefit himself. He wants to resurrect the guy Sirus, who if done so correctly will unleash Hell on earth and every single immortal ever been killed will come back to life, even the really really bad ones and that means danger and even the really bad ass immortals that rarely need to be scared are shaking in their boots. This brings us to Klaus….
Ahhh, Klaus or Niklaus. Something about him is so sexy and
delicious and mean and nasty and God should I go on? He is just bad with a capital B and I LOVE him and I love Joseph Morgan for bringing us such a truly bad character that we can truly love and hate at the same time. Klaus is a true immortal and can only be killed by one thing which is a stake from a special tree which he just happens to possess so basically the ONLY thing that might be able to kill him is Sirus and that is only because he can get into his head and probably make him kill himself.
Klaus is also madly in love with Caroline who is also one of Elena’s best friends who was turned in to a vampire early on. She is actually dating a werewolf or I should say the first werewolf hybrid that Klaus sired and when Klaus saw the two of them together he wanted her…. end of story. He sent Tyler (his bitch boy) away and basically will kill him if he ever sees him near Caroline again.
I think Caroline is another one who closets her feelings because she
always runs to Klaus and she says it is because she can exploit his feelings for her but you can see she feels something…time will tell, but the problem is we may not have that time. Not only did Klaus JUST find out he is going to have a baby cub from a recreation of the howling he had with that little snake in the grass Haley :D but they are also making a new show just about the originals i.e. Klaus, Rebekah, Elijah and whatever other brothers they have lying around in the
attic in New Orleans so the bond between Klaus and Caroline might be permanently severed which might make me cry just a little, although he did leave her a voice mail saying he wanted her to see the city with him so maybe they will bring her along and dump that she wolf soon after giving birth to the golden cub? One can only hope, they need more tie-ins from the other show. I’m still trying to wrap my head around Klaus being a baby daddy…..
Speaking of tie ins, Elijah is in love with Katarina which is Elena’s
actual first person or Elena is her Doppelganger or however you would say that but anyhoooo, does this mean she is going to be in both shows or is he going to have to give up his true love because of the thing with Klaus hunting her down? Geez this thing gets more and more complicated by the minute but see, that is why I love it. There is actually meat to the
story and something to think about unlike glittering vampires that you or my 7th grade daughter could write the ending to their story without even thinking about…I mean with exception to the vampire baby and ripping it out with his teeth but God please; let’s not go back there it was bad enough the first time. This story has everything and just when you think it can’t get any better it does. There is some other twist with something new but not something cheestastic but something that if you try and wrap your head around it; it makes some kind of sense, so in my book it works and works well.
Honestly I have no clue what is going to happen and that is the
beauty of it, I usually have these shows pegged from about two shows into the season but with a very few exceptions I can’t and this show that I said was so stupid and I would never watch in a million years or unless I was dead or catatonic or hell froze over is really really good and so now I am eating my words and telling everyone to watch and that no the CW is NOT just for tween little girls and their shows actually are good…OKAY there , I said it. I hope to hear what any fans of the show have to say and what you think of certain characters etc. I love to have discussions and debates here so have at it :D
Peace, love and lots of happy vampire biting and sex on the CW ~ Nan
