The Vampire Diaries- Down the Rabbit Hole

Published

on


“Until we find a way.”
What a cliffhanger, the writers and producers have left us with!! Its almost as if this was a mid-season finale. The gang got so much closer to the cure, almost too close, since the cure might not actually be as beneficial as we thought it would be. 


How many times will we have to say goodbye?? Until they find a way, I guess. But will they ever? Klaus made it clear, that no amount of love for Caroline, will make him revert his vengeance against Tyler. I mean, why would it? Not only has Tyler pissed him off multiple times by turning his hybrids against him and threatening to kill him, he’s dating the girl that Klaus loves. His love for her, let Tyler get a head start on leaving town, but if he finds him, he will kill him. This kind of behavior is what differentiates Klaus from Damon and is the reason why Caroline cannot find love for Klaus anywhere in her heart. Basically, Tyler is the brand new Katherine, on the run from the evil hybrid vampire for the rest of his eternal life. Nevertheless, that scene was not a optimistic Valentines day scene. The waterworks were definitely in full affect, only because out of all the couple on this show, Caroline and Tyler are the ultimate definition of pure love. 


Speaking of Katherine, we’ve been wondering where she’s been hiding ever since her last flea. Well it seems that she has been ahead of everyone and has been waiting for the whole gang to arrive so she could wake Silas. But how did she know anything about Silas?  Why would she want to wake Silas? Is it because she wants the cure? If anyone has got the whole being a vampire thing down, its Katherine, so why would she want the cure? Is her mission also to give the cure to Klaus? Even if that was her idea, that would mean she has to get close to Klaus, and she’s been running from him for 500 years because he despises her and wants to see her dead, so that idea seem to be ruled out. But if that would be the case, than I guess what she did was really in everyones best intention, well except Jeremy’s. 

While Jeremy was trying to pry to cure from Silas’ frozen hands, Katherine just flew in impersonating Elena and fed his blood to the immortal soul. But would the director’s really kill of Jeremy?? If Jeremy dies, that means that Elena has lost everyone that she loves forever, which just means she’s on the verge of a crazy spree. Aside from the fact that she has this love for Damon and Stefan, that kind of love cannot replace the love of her closest family members. Especially with Jeremy, they have gotten so much closer since the very first season. They’ve bonded over loosing family members, Jeremy has coped with having his sister turn into a vampire, she’s accepted him becoming a vampire hunter and they’ve worked on their relationship so that he doesn’t want to kill her. Their basically the closest two people there could ever be, so loosing her brother would just be horrible. Fans have to hold tight till next week to see if he survives after he’s been drained of his blood by Silas. Also, if Jeremy does end up dying, Elena will hunt Katherine down, even if it kills her. 


The most interesting part of this episode is the theme of “hurting and betraying people when you finally reach something you want.” Klaus let Rebekah know that according to the sword and the map, there was only one dose of the cure. Rebekah wasn’t greedy, she let Stefan know that there was only one cure. She than proceeded to break his neck and kill him when she realized that if she would give him the cure, he would feed it to Elena. Betrayed!!!!!! But what goes around comes around and after she finally reached the cave, she got shot by the other vampire hunter, which made it possible for Elena to get there with Stefan. Stefan stayed behind to help Damon, who was held captive the whole time as leverage for the vampire hunter. This is where Damon’s selflessness came in. He was completely down, hurt and abused. He knew Elena wanted the cure and despite his need for the cure, he told Stefan to go help Elena get it. He trusted Stefan enough to be Elena’s accomplice. He than helped Rebekah and took the bullets out of her. Things are really changing him. But despite everything, no amount of love will stop someone from doing something that benefits them.


Yet, its great that there is no cure. It would be to easy and pretty pathetic if Elena was fed the cure and became a human. They need more spice. In order to kill Silas, you must feed him the cure. In order to make Klaus human, you need to feed him the cure. No one wants Silas alive and no one wants Klaus to go on a killing rampage for killing Cole. But theres only one cure. In order to get the cure, you must raise Silas, whose got him own vengeance and need to kill everyone for being buried alive for so many years. Katherine took care of the cure, but now what will happen with it? How will the story with Silas unravel? The only reason that Shane was looking for Silas was because Silas went into his mind and made him believe that he would be able to see his family again. Its pretty much all a hoax as he makes you see the people that died that are closest to you and tries to lure you in to waking him up. Which means that Silas has a plan of his own, and I doubt that would be to spare anyone from death. 

Moving on to the relationship drama within the show. Rebekah was jealous seeing Elena and Stefan bond over being “friends”, which was compelling to see since it just indicates how serious their relationship has gotten in the time that Elena and Stefan broke up. But at the same time, Stefan still cares about Elena and I think in the back of his mind he still wants to be with her. Elena clearly loves Damon, but I think Damon is scared that he just can’t be good enough for her, despite all the changes that have been happening to him, which are changes for the better. Now with Tyler on the run, the relationship between Caroline and Klaus will have more freedom to develop and I’m sure Klaus will pursue it. Finally, it seems quite unfortunate that at the same time that Bonnie and Jeremy have been bonding and rekindling their friendship, which could potentially, lead to a new relationship, Bonnie gets stabbed and Jeremy may or may not survive. Also, what does this new vampire hunter have to do with anything? What’s his role in everything? I guess we have to wait until next week, although I’ll probably clenching my paws in anticipation till than.

“So can I have a moment, Just to say hello. Can u let your anger go? It’s been a long year And I’m finally ready to be here.”

Joseph Morgan Reveals If He’d Ever Reprise His Character Klaus Mikealson for ‘Legacies’

Published

on


If you’ve been waiting for the day where Klaus Mikealson strolls back into Mystic Falls to pay his daughter, Hope Mikealson, and the Salvatore School — which he helped fund — a visit, well, don’t get your hopes up. 

The first two seasons of Legacies have given us some grade-A guest stars from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals including Aunt Freya (Riley Voekel), Kai Parker (Chris Wood), and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).  We even briefly saw Lizzie and Josie Saltzman’s birth mother Josette (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe). 

But as for baddie Klaus Mikealson, the man who brought him to life, Joseph Morgan, doesn’t think he’ll ever reprise his role again.

And turns out, he has a really good reason!

TV Guide caught up with the actor to talk about his Peacock show, Brave New World, and when asked about guest starring on The CW teen drama, he bluntly and rapidly shut down the possibility.

“No never, never. You’re never going to see it.” Morgan said. “You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2. So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

As much as we’d like to see Klaus in the flesh again, you have to admit that’s a satisfactory answer. It shows that Morgan cares enough about the character not to reprise him without a purpose or taint his legacy. 

Klaus Mikealson’s story came to a fitting end in the series finale of The Originals when he redeemed himself for the greater good and sacrificed himself alongside his brother Elijah to save his daughter. Since then, Hope has carried on his legacy; his memory lives on as she mentions him pretty often and channels what he taught her to protect her friends and fight off a plethora of demons and monsters. 

Morgan added that he felt like series creator Julie Plec understood where he was coming from. 

“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Morgan continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.” 

Morgan may get a pass, but Candace Accola surely doesn’t.  We’d love to see her reprise her role of Caroline Forbes considering she’s raising two daughters with Alaric but has yet to pay them a visit or help out with the school! Don’t let us down, Caroline! 

The fact that she is still alive in the supernatural world and has such close ties to Mystic Falls but yet never comes to visit doesn’t paint her in a great light!

Sweet Magnolias

Is Netflix’s ‘Sweet Magnolias’ Filmed in Mystic Falls?

Is the town of Serenity in Sweet Magnolias Filmed in Mystic Falls?

The small town of Serenity, filled with Southern charm and people who know everything about everyone, is one of the main character’s in Netflix’s new Hallmark-esque series Sweet Magnolias. 

Based on Sherryl Woods’ novel, the series, starring JoAnna Garcia, focuses on family, friendship, careers, and picking up the pieces for three lifelong 30-something friends who decide to convert an old home into a spa. 

Small towns are a huge draw for TV shows, and Serenity has already drawn comparisons to other iconic and quaint towns like Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls.

However, it should be compared to one supernatural town instead! 

While there’s nothing supernatural about Serenity, if you found yourself waiting for a vampire to walk through the town square as Garcia’s Maddie is cooling off after a meeting with her lawyers about a divorce, you’re not alone. 

If the town looks eerily familiar (almost like you’ve been there before and lived there your whole life), it’s because you have… well, at least if you’re a CW fan! 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BwEkKKpH8EP/

Fans of  The Vampire Diaries and Legacies will recognize that Serenity is Mystic Falls! 

In that same spot when Maddie comes to terms with the dissolution of her marriage and is consoled by her best friend Helen Decatur (Heather Headley from Chicago Med) on Sweet Magnolias Season 1 Episode 1, we’ve seen Damon and Stefan Salvatore come to blows and the Malivore pit open up. 

The episode even gives us a glimpse of Mystic Falls’ Founders Bell.

Serenity and Mystic Falls overlap even further as the restaurant previously known as Mystic Grill (a popular hangout in town for Elena Gilbert and friends) was turned into Sullivan’s, Dana Sue’s (Brooke Elliot from Drop Dead Diva) restaurant! 

Mystic Grill is also home to a museum of TV memorabilia and show costumes (and there’s plenty of Mystic Falls TVD fan tours) called The Alley, so it’s likely it will soon feature pieces from Sweet Magnolias. 

While Sweet Magnolias was a cute series, it was hard for me to get fully invested because I kept getting thrown off with Mystic Falls being referred to as Serenity! As much as I want to like Serenity, it will always be Mystic Falls in my eyes. 

Of course, Mystic Falls is a fictional town (though, it’s very real if you ask any TVD fan), set in Convington, GA located about 30 miles from Atlanta. 

We’re not surprised Sweet Magnolias used the town as their backdrop — without the vampires, werewolves, witches, and doppelgangers, it truly is charming in that Hallmark kind of way.

Sweet Magnolias is currently streaming on Netflix. It also stars Chris Pine (American Pie), and Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey 101).

If you’re looking for some sweet “comfort food” to pull you away from reality, Sweet Magnolias is definitely your cup of iced tea.

Ian Somerhalder and Paul Welsey reveal bourbon name

During the WizardWorld-hosted virtual reunion for the cast of The Vampire Diaries, the Salvatore brothers, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, who played Damon and Stefan Salvatore, respectively, revealed the name of their joint bourbon brand. 

The brand is called “Brother’s Bond,” Ian revealed, adding that it pays tribute to the alcoholic drink that bonded their characters on The CW series from 2009 to 2017. 

“Here it is. Our passion. Our baby,” Ian wrote on Instagram. 

“Time, quality, and passion distilled for you and me,” he added adding that anyone over the age of 21 can go to brothersbondbourbon.com to sign up.

The duo announced that they were developing the liquor in September of 2019.  “Can you imagine if the Salvatore brothers had their OWN bourbon? Well, it’s coming! @paulwesley and I have been working our asses off with our incredible team to make this happen,” Ian wrote on Instagram at the time

During the Twitch stream on May 27, the actors revealed that they’ve been developing the taste from the ground up and ensuring it was smooth and sweet on the palate.  

“Every single aspect of this we designed ourselves,” Somerhalder said during the virtual reunion, which also included Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert), Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan), and Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood), among others. 

“This is our baby,” Ian said from his Airstream. He explained that the bourbon is a culmination of their hard work and journey together.

If you were a fan of TVD, you know that bourbon bonded the brothers and defined their kinship. They may have disagreed on a lot, but they always agreed on bourbon. 

It’s unclear when the brand will be available in stores, but we’ll update as soon as we find out!
