It’s time for some spoilers! The week’s episode came to a dramatic end when Stefan ripped out manic Enzo’s heart. Truthfully, Enzo played a huge role in his own death, but that’s besides the point. We saw Enzo cross over to the Other Side, but not completely. With the Other Side disintegrating, it seems that there is a loophole that’s letting him stick around and get some revenge on the Salvatore brothers. Here’s what Ian Somerhalder and Caroline Dries said we should expect from the episodes leading up to the season finale.
So why isn’t Enzo dead? Mainly because Ian Somerhalder threatened that if Dries kills off Enzo, he’s going to quit. But all jokes aside, Dries admitted, “His story isn’t over — he’s going to become kind of this ghost villain moving forward and we’ll see him all the way through the finale as the bad guy. He’s pissed that he’s dead, but that’s amplified by the fact that around him, people are being sucked into the ether just like Vicki, so his concern is, ‘I want out.” How much damage can the hunk cause from other side as he tries to find a way to escape? Well… a lot apparently.
“You just wait, you just wait and see — he’s determined to make Damon’s life and Stefan’s life a living hell,” Dries said.
All of this because Damon killed the love of his life 50 years prior without knowing it.
“I think its the same trajectory as with Damon and Katherine, that deep, deep, love… it’s a delicate thing. I wish Damon could shake him and say let it go. Let’s have some drinks and go to a strip club and be done,” Somerhalder said.
And there’s our next possible hint? No, not strip clubs by Somerhalder did joke that the season finale would take place in Vegas.
Because of the Other Side being on the brink of destruction, Enzo has a lot more flexibility as a ghost than previous ghosts had. He’s able to travel between sides and apparently even talk to Damon. Dries teased that during a certain point, Damon will make Enzo a promise to get him out of there, but under so much duress, he doesn’t really know how to achieve it; how to act on his promise.
Enzo is also our direct link to seeing what’s really happening on the Other Side. While Bonnie is the anchor, Enzo will be the one to explain to us whats happening and how we can stop it. He’ll also be the master villain until the season finale. I don’t know about you but something about Enzo being a villain is just not working for me. I liked him better when he had a bad-boy bromance with Damon.
Dries did reveal that the ultimate goal by season 5’s end is to completely get rid of the Other Side. That means when someone dies, they’ll die for good. She also teased that we can expect at least 3 more character deaths. Who are your guesses? I think Bonnie is going to die for sure. And hopefully, this time it’ll be for good. How many times can someone seriously die and come back to life before it’s just old?
We also see the Mystic Falls gang more united going into the season finale as their trying to protect their home, which is being ripped away by the Travelers.
The travelers storyline has been one that’s confused me pretty much this whole season. This week we found out that all they really want is to reverse the witches curse so that they could finally find a place to stay and call home. Really, it’s that simple? Dries say’s yes. “We were trying to give the Traveler’s the simplest goal in the world, of them saying we just want a place to call home. We usually get criticized for making it so confusing,” she added. Well, now you’re getting criticized because I feel like this whole build up has to be for something more than just territory? I mean come on! Really?
Additionally, we wonder what’s going to happen to the people on the Other Side? Will they all be ripped away into eternity like Katherine and Vicki? And what happens when that happens? Where are they know? Are we really closing the door on all of them forever?
As for exes Damon and Elena– they’ve been trying to stay away from each other and they’ll basically be thrown in a cabin in the woods together and won’t have any other choice. “The push and the pull; it’s always been this way with Elena… it really does make a very dynamic component to their relationship. It creates chemistry, all this cool stuff. It’s pretty evident and it’s there to stay for a while. It’s always uncomfortable,” Somerhalder said. Hmm… do you think that these two will end up together in the season finale? Probably not…. but that doesn’t mean the chemistry isn’t there.
“They don’t have to say anything, but the chemistry exists. Even the storyline of them not dating, the chemistry exists,” added Dries.
As for Tyler, he’s going to become a more prominent character as he’s been suffering through his relationship angst and finally missing Caroline. Except that Caroline won’t be single forever and it seems that she will set her sights on someone and it will cause a rift for her and a friend. Ummm Elena?? Caroline’s totally going to move in for Stefan and it’ll be wonderful!!!! *Fingers crossed* Sorry Tyler!
As for the finale, Dries hopes that the viewers will see this giant thing happen and than when season 6 rolls around, we’ll see people coming back together and reuniting. Ah!! Are you excited for the remainder of the season?? What are your thoughts?

9 Shows That Need to Be On Your Radar for 2022
It was bittersweet saying goodbye to plenty of shows in 2021, but the plus side is that it made room for a handful of new shows that are gearing up for their highly-anticipated premieres.
There are plenty of shows that we’re excited about, but since it’s too much for anyone person to take in, we’ve condensed it to a list including the best of the best.
These are all the shows already garnering and generating buzz in 2022 — even before they’ve premiered.
Check out our list of shows (mostly new, but also a few final seasons) that should be on your radar:
How I Met Your Father – Hulu
Fans of How I Met Your Mother can re-live all the magic with a new group of friends with Hilary Duff at the helm. It’s also giving us some Younger vibes, so call it the best of both worlds.
The gender-reversed comedy premieres Tuesday, Jan. 18 with the first two episodes and then on a weekly basis.
House of the Dragon – HBO Max
Even if the final season of “Game of Thrones” left a bad taste in your mouth, don’t worry, the prequel is here to serve as a palate cleanser. Set 200 years before GOT, it’s based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and focuses on the a civil war within House Targaryen. There is no premiere date as of yet, but that hasn’t stopped us from holding our breath.
BEL-AIR – Peacock
Revivals get a bad rap, but they aren’t always terrible. We’ve seen success with Saved by the Bell and Roswell, so fingers-crossed that Bel-Air, a comedy reimagined as an hour-long drama, will deliver in the same way. Will Smith has signed on for the project alongside the original creators. Jabari Banks stars as Will, a young man who moves into the gated mansion of Bel-Air in modern-day America, and explores plenty of conflicts and biases. It has been picked up for two seasons prior to the premiere on Sunday, Feb. 13 with the first two episodes and then weekly episodes.
Ozark – Netflix (Fourth and final season)
We’re crossing the finish line on Ozark this year, which is arguably a good thing because I don’t know how much more my nerves could handle. And the end is likely something the Byrde family definitely wants after getting too wrapped up in a messy situation with the Mexican cartel. Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Gardner all make this series an intoxicating binge from beginning to end, even if the fourth and final season is split up into two parts with the first half arriving on Netflix on January 21.
Disney+ saw massive success with their Marvel shows, so it’s not a surprise that there’s a palpable excitement for She-Hulk starring Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, a lawyer who has one small favor to ask: don’t make her angry. She’s the less-angry-but-just-as-green cousin of Bruce Banner, the Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo, who is expected to make an appearance. No premiere date has been announced yet.
Inventing Anna – Netflix
Shonda Rhines is making her mark on Netflix with a series based on the true and shocking story of fashionable grifter Anna Delvey who faked being a German heiress to scam New York New Yorker’s into thinking she was a German heiress. Ozark’s secret weapon, Julia Gardner, works miracles as Delvey. The cast also stars Scandal’s Katie Lowes and Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox. This is a can’t miss limited series that hits Netflix on February 11.
Lord of the Rings – Amazon Prime
This is a big one for fans of the LOTR films! The television adaptation is a prequel set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and features an ensemble cast — both new and familiar — as they confront an evil unlike ever before in the Second Middle Age. It will make its mark on Amazon Prime on September 22.
Stranger Things – Netflix
We’ve paid our dues waiting to catch up with the residents of Hawkins, Indiana. Only this time, the action will take us to California and Soviet Russia (because, yes, Hopper is alive — spoiler) as the group of friends tries to stop the supernatural entities of the Upside Down once and for all. A premiere date (for the fourth and possible final season) announcement is likely on the horizon, but our money is on late spring or early summer. After all, we’ve waited long enough!
Obi-Wan Kenobi – Disney+
Disney and Star Wars go hand-in-hand, and with the success of the recent The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, it only makes sense that they would dive into Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series is set a decade after the events of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith. In a real treat, Ewan McGregor will reprise the titular role, while Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader. No premiere date has been announced.
