Throughout the weekend, the stars of TVD and The Originals shared pictures of their mini-vacation.

Co-star Ian Somerhalder could not make it, but he sent the couple a heartfelt message on Instagram writing, “”Candace and Joe- my brother, my sister. What a magical day this is for both of you. From the eye of the storm I am still with you in spirit!”I am missing my home state of Louisiana and my city, the great city of New Orleans.

The couple got engaged in May 2013 in Florence Italy. This is the first marriage for Accola. King shares two daughters with his ex-wife Julie.

They met at the DirecTV’s Celebrity BeachBowl in 2012, after co-star Nina Dobrev talked to King for Accola, who was too shy.

The newlyweds shared their first pictures after tying the knot on Instagram. The black-and-white photos captured the aura of the happy day, showing the newlyweds during their first dance and kissing in front of their guests.

Accola, 27, wore a Monique Lhuillier gown. The groom rocked a Tom Ford tux for the “French Quarter Wedding.”We hope the bride got permission from Klaus and Marcel for the party, as they tend to have some good old fashioned fights in the quarter.

“Officially Mr. and Mrs. King! Best night ever!,” Accola wrote.

The celebration kicked off with a parade through the streets of New Orleans. Accola traded in the traditional veil for a princess tiara for the after-party.

The other photo was shared via King’s Instagram. “My wife, she makes me wanna dance,” he captioned the photo.

 

Over in Maui, Glee’s Matthew Morrison tied the knot with model fiancé Renee Puente.

Morrison, 35, and Puente, 31, tied the knot on Saturday, Oct.18. 

It was a small affair, with about 50 family members and friends who arrived in Hawaii earlier this week. 

 “I’m very happy. Renee’s not in the industry — I need that normality. We like to stay home and cook, we’re not that Hollywood,” the actor told Closer magazine.

Morrison wore a custom Brooks Brothers tux. The bride wore a Gustavo Cadile gown.

They were first spotted together in 2011. He popped the question last summer, tweeting that he was going to marry his best friend.

This is the first marriage for both.

Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3

Why Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on Stranger Things Season 3

This post contains spoilers. If you have not watched Stranger Things Season 3, do not continue reading.

Billy Hargrove made a splash on Stranger Things Season 2 as the resident bad boy, but it wasn’t until the third season where he became fully integrated and essential to the core storyline.

In the third season, Billy rose from being a supporting character to essentially carrying the series, yet he never got the recognition he deserved.

There have been a handful of characters who I could’ve demanded justice for in the Stranger Things realm from Barb to Bob to Alexei. Trust me, they all deserve it, but Billy’s storyline especially triggered me because he was cheated from the very beginning.

He was never set up to win, and when he finally did achieve his redemption arc, it was glossed over because of a bigger death; one that admittedly, carried more weight.

I’m obviously referring to Hopper’s death.

The emotional stock of Billy’s decision to fight through the evil coursing through his body in order to save Eleven didn’t have time to sink in or resonate before the writers ripped our hearts in half by killing the hot-headed-who-always-meant-well police chief and Eleven’s dad.

But here’s why Hopper’s death shouldn’t have overshadowed Billy: there’s a huge probability that Hopper isn’t dead.

The scene following the credits showed the Russian’s referring to an “American” prisoner.

The Russians referred to Hopper as the American multiple times throughout the season, so it’s likely that Stranger Things Season 4 will be a rescue mission to save Eleven’s beloved papa.

But Billy is gone for good, and still died a secondary death.

And in his final moments, the only person who mourned him was Max, who for most of the season was forced to turn against her brother because he became the Mind Flayer’s host.

At no point did any of Max’s friends show concern over Billy nor did they try to save him from the Mind Flayer’s control. From the getgo, they rode him off as the “bad guy” because he wasn’t liked around town and accepted his fate.

Billy may have been deemed the “classic bully” and boy, he did a good job at it, but Bily wasn’t a bad guy who deserved his death.

Billy was broken and tormented.

As we saw when El tapped into his subconscious, his father was abusive and his mother abandoned him.

Instead of dealing with the trauma, Billy acted out and became a womanizer.
