“I am the girl you love. You wouldn’t actually do anything to hurt me. You just proved that. So what should I be afraid of?”
They did it!!! They finally got through to Elena and got her humanity back. Although I must admit, as much as I hated the bitchy Elena, the sappy feeling Elena is just as bad. Its like you cant win with that girl.
Of course, it was delicious watching the two boys torture and try to instill feel in a girl whom their completely in love with. As much as I hate to admit it, Elena’s pretty smart without her humanity. How can she be scared of what the Salvatore brother’s will do to her, if she knows they love her so much they would never actually hurt her. All they do is save her!!!! Which made Damon’s plan actually very intriguing and gave the only human on the show, Matt, a purpose for life.
Despite hating everyone and pretending that she doesn’t care for anything, seeing Matt die in front of her eyes because of her was just the thing to send all the emotions floating back. They came straight from her soul; a regurgatation of things she bottled up inside. When something finally shook that bottle hard enough and everything seeped through, Elena finally understood the things she had done to the people she once cared about. She finally realized the mistake she made in burning her house down, the grief over her brother’s death, the sadness over killing innocent people and the want to kill her own best friends. Its like waking up from a really bad nightmare, or a bad hangover, to realize how dumb your actions were the night before. It isn’t pleasant. Now that the Salvatore brothers have their “girlfriend” back they must deal with the pain she’s feeling.
Everything in the episode was done tastefully, no pun intended. It was a fantastic episode full of emotional rollercoasters. Bonnie teamed up with Katerina, which I didn’t see coming, in order to get Sila’s stone. She has promised him that she will do the spell during the full moon to get rid of the veil and send him to the other side. What Sila’s doesn’t know, is that she has a plan of her own, for which she needs Katherine’s help. In return, she will offer Katerina the freedom she has longed for, for 500 years. The pairing of these two seems promising, yet deadly at the same time. She’s a Bennett, but will she have it in her to defeat Silas?
This unlikely team up and Bonnie’s attempt at ignoring Silas, leads to some almost devastating results for Caroline. She’s fooled into thinking that Klaus is back (and almost revealing her true feelings for him. Gloat all you Claroline worshippers.) Than she is fooled again into thinking that she’s talking to Matt, when its really Silas. He needs to stop doing this to people, for real. If he had given Caroline the opportunity to call Bonnie, maybe she would have, but no, he just daggered her and left her there. That’s whatever because Caroline is a strong person, but when it seemed like he killed her mother, I was weeping like a baby right with Car. You have to see your daughter graduate Liz, you can’t die. That’s what I really hate. When supernatural creatures kill loved ones in order to “prove” something. How pathetic. All in all I’m so grateful that Liz is alive. These poor souls in Mystic Falls don’t deserve to loose anymore family members. I must say that despite all the horrible things that have happened to Caroline (Tyler and Klaus leaving, her mother almost dying, Elena trying to kill her, Elena saying horrible things to hurt Caroline) she still manages to be the sweet blonde that wants whats best for everyone. Its people like that, who don’t stop believing in the good of humanity despite only seeing the ugly and bad.
Lastly, Rebekah has been trying to get on Matts good graces for quite some time. Usually, she’s pretty evil and her attempts at being good fail miserably. Yet on this weeks episode, you could tell she was genuinely sorry about her role in turning Elena into a vampire and killing her and making Matt almost drown because she steered them off a bridge. Its going to take a lot for Matt to forgive her for basically screwing up everyones life, but it’ll happen eventually. They make a really cute couple for sure and I’m totally team Mattekah???
Graduation is only an episode away. Elena’s got her humanity back, but she has a new plan. She’s latched on to the idea that killing Katherine will somehow make everything better and restore order. I’m not really feeling that storyline and I hope the writers steer from it because that whole vengeful act against Katherine is really season 2. Elena has a lot more to be grateful for and I believe a little bit more wisdom under her belt. Plus, she has so many people that love her and so many opportunities. Well, that is if Bonnie succeed’s in her spell. If she breaks the threshold to the other world, than everyone is screwed. What are your predictions for the upcoming episode? Are you excited for the season finale??
- Katherine: Lying, scheming and a secret rendezvous with muah. Not very Bonnie Bennett of you.
- Damon: Bad girls don’t get nice jewelry.
- Rebekah: You dated that?
- Matt: She likes projects…
- Rebekah: Looks like the lunatics have taken over the asylum.
- Katherine: Tell me what you told him to turn him against me or I will feed you your own eyeballs.
- Elena: You’re the definition of damaged goods.
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.

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!
