The Vampire Diaries- The Reckoning



“Given the choice, dopppleganger or hybrid, I got with hybrid everytime”

How does Vampire Diaries do it every week!?!?!?
This weeks episode was exceptional based on the fact that everybody was included and everybody had such a vital role. Everyones life was changed all because of prank night. Even Matts because lets be serious… he deserves it. He’s trying os hard to fit in with all his supernatural friends.


Klaus and Stefan are like a bipolar couple. Stefan hates him but he has to listen to him but keeps trying to prove his trust to him, although he would do anything to save Elena. I caught myself cheering when Stefan snapped and told Klaus that he would not turn it off. So violent and sexy, mmm. He ended up feeding on Elena but only because Klaus had caught on to the fact that her blood keeps his hybrids alive. The original witch who had told him the doppleganger had to die forgot to mention that in order for him to change she must die, but for him to stay alive he must feed on her blood. So I guess Klaus owes Stefan one. And even though Stefan and Elena keep talking about how much they love each other and he’s doing everything in his power to save Elena, I feel like the magic they had as a couple is gone. I mean obviously she saw him feed on two of her classmates and all but in that ending scene you could tell she had fallen for Damon. Stefan could tell he lost her to his brother too. It was hilarious how they suddenly seemed to have switched positions, Damon being the sweet sensitive boyfriend and Stefan getting his bourbon drink and sneering as he tells them to carry on. Save yourself the trouble Elena, Damon will always win. Always.

I understand that Katherine wants Damon all to herself and she wants to be the hero and all that but I think she does more bad then good. Not that im complaining because the effects are always very interesting but becusse of her Damon wasn’t there for Elena when she had a gym countdown on her life. Damon was too busy kidnapping Jeremy and interrogating Anna through Jeremy. After Damon went back to save Elena, Jeremy and Katherine went to awake Michael (a vampire hunter). I wonder whats so scary about Michael that had Klaus dipping harder then ever when Damon mentioned him.


Im a little worried about Tyler. We know vampires have heightened senses but how does that work for a hybrid. There is so much we don’t know about this new species Klaus created and its pretty dangerous. Tyler might be feeling all high and mighty but Carolines terrified, as she should be. Does this also mean that in order to stay alive he must drink Elena’s blood. That would be kind of weird…. If I was Caroline I don’t know how comfortable I would be with that….


Matt cracks me up. Poor Matty is the only human on the show simply trying to enjoy prank night while he feels like Dan Humphrey did on Season 1. I got this weird vibe though that Bonnie and Matt might soon be getting some face time? They bonded immensely after she saved his life and now that he is seeing Vicky things are about to get interesting. Plus I doubt Jeremy would really care at this point. He’s too busy talking to his ghostly ex-gf and possibly hooking up with his sister’s lookalike….. Yeah…

 Other Thoughts
-Where the hell is Alaric
-Rebecca is hilarious. Taking pictures of herself and taking over Katerinas witty one liners. Theres something about them old vampires that just so clever and sarcastic.
-Is Jenna ever going to come back from the dead? If Jeremy can have his ex back, and Matt can have his sister, its only fair Ric gets his gf back. At least his ex wife? Anyone?

Memorable Quotes

  • Damon- Stop being cute.
    Katherine- It’s not possible.
  •   Damon- I promise I will never leave you again.

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!

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!

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 Wesley Announce Name of Bourbon Brand



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 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!
