“And like the rest of their secrets they kept it buried”
The night of illumination occurred at Mystic Falls tonight but it was also a night of deaths, ghosts coming back to finish what they started, and hope… maybe. Mystic Falls welcomed back Anna, Mason Lockwood, Pearl, Lexi, and Bonnies grandma!!!! Ghosts and supernatural beings galore. Do normal people still exist in Mystic Falls besides Matt. I literally blame all of tonights mayhem on Matt. Damn human.
Jeremy is an asshole. Guys are all the same. After he was able to touch Anna again he ended up kissing her in the bathroom and professing his love to her claiming she was the only girl he loved. Low blow to your girlfriend huh? I’m not quite sure Anna was even there for the right reasons I mean she did say she didn’t want to be alone and came back hoping to reconnect with her mother. Plus she’s just a shady little ghost! She stole the necklace and allowed all those tomb vampires to wreck havoc on the town. Not cool. Mayor Lockwood almost died because of her! Then after she was sent back to the other side Jeremy has the nerve to try to explain things to Bonnie. Psh. She set him straight right away and with good reason! Go Bonnie!!!
Elena is continuing her mission to save Stefan. After plotting to find Lexi, Lexi walked right into her arms. Knocking Stefan out and locking him in the dungeon she sucked out his blood and made him suffer. It didn’t seem to be working very well because after his “I Love You” plee to Elena didn’t work he went straight back to rippah Stefan. Elena admitted she wasnt giving up hope even after a glimpse into her gloom and doom future with him but she did finally stand her ground. She didn’t give in to his plea’s but rather walked away to be with the people that actually love her and want her around leaving Stefan to drown in his pain.
After being tortured by Mason in return for brutally ripping his heart out Damon and Mason embarked on a journey together where Damon learned the meaning of trust and realized that no matter what the situation is sometimes it’s not worth holding a grudge. Sure Mason wanted to save Tyler from heading down the same grim road as he did but it was cute to watch. Even with stakes pierced through his body Damon never skips a beat with his comical lines. This led to Damon and Alaric forgiving each other and finding some random hieroglyphics from the past that could potential hold all the answers they need. Score!
-Where was Tyler this episode? Was he frolicking around the forest with Rebekah? I’m surprised Caroline wasn’t the least bit concerned about her boyfriends whereabouts.
-Is Katerina really dead? That would be a shame. I really grew a liking towards her.
-Since the spell didn’t work on the necklace because it somehow pieced itself back together what does that mean for the other side? Did the door close or are they still going to be coming in and out of people’s lives?
-Also, since the necklace still exists is that some symbol for hope. Is Stefan going to find his way out of this? Does he even love Elena anymore?
-I can’t wait to see what part Michael has to play in all of this. That story wasn’t really hashed out too much in this episode.
-I still believe Elena should call it a day and put her energy towards something more worthy, like Damon. She criticized Jeremy that he cant be in love with a ghost forever but how is it fair that she can be in love with a vampire forever? Same general idea sweetie.
-Mystic Falls has way to many founder day events. Theres one like every week. Do people seriously attend them every time???
- Anna: Its just a bunch of historical lies.
- Damon: Cause he chained me to a chair and stuck a metal rod in me, lets just say im having deja vu.
- Damon: When I kill someone their suppose to stay dead. FIX IT.
- Caroline: Please tell me that’s a recipe for witch cookies.
- Stefan: Who forgot to invite me to the family summit?
- Anna: I’m only here cause you wanna be with me as much as I wanna be with you.
- Bonnies Gma: Witches talk even on the other side, who do you think makes all the rules?
- Elena: You need to disapear or evaporate or whatever ghosts do.
- Ric: Are you incapable of remorse, just apologize!
- Lexi: I’m doing what I do best sweetie, I’m saving your life.
- Mason: I’m a ghost, not God.
- Lexi: The necklace represented hope.
- Stefan: Ironic that its about to get blown to pieces.
- Elena: I wont love a ghost for the rest of my life.
- Damon: You gunna bury me alive?
- Mason: Don’t tempt me..
Joseph Morgan Reveals If He’d Ever Reprise His Character Klaus Mikealson for ‘Legacies’
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!
Is Netflix’s ‘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!
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.

#SweetMagnolias is set in a fictional town called Serenity. Sheryl Anderson repeated, throughout the shooting of the show, that it was important that everyone might see themselves in Serenity. I like that idea more than ever these days—Serenity not just as a place, but a state of mind. The show drops on #Netflix in just 5 days on May 19.
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 Wesley Announce Name of Bourbon Brand
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. Ladies and gentlemen please meet, Brother’s Bond Bourbon. Time, quality and passion distilled for you and me. We appreciate your support more than you know. If you are 21 years or older in the United States or legal drinking age in your home country please Go to: Brothersbondbourbon.com to sign up. We can’t wait to share with you! Please share this website address with friends and family. Let’s bond. Love, Ian and Paul
“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!
