The Vampire Diaries: “I’m Thinking Of You All The While”

Jo died. And Alaric completely fell apart holding Jo in his arms. The entire Gemini Coven is dead. And Liv sacrificed her life to save Tyler’s.

And I was just like…

Tyler’s a werewolf again. And he left to start a new life…aka Goodbye Trevino.

But, before leaving he took a bite out of New-Witchpire-Kai as a parting gif! Bringin’ the smackdown!

Thank god!! Damon saved Bonnie!! I knew Damon loved Bonnie and wouldn’t abandon her!! And that scene with him carrying her out of the rubble…Perfection. BAMON FRIENDSHIP POWER LEVEL-UP!!!!

And Damon ripped Kai’s stupid little head off!! YAAAS!!

But, what kills a witchpire? Because he absorbed and got rid of the werewolf bite. So, that doesn’t kill him. And if you rip a vampire’s head off, they live. From what I understand from past episodes, you have to stab them with a stake. So, is Kai still alive?!

Kai linked Elena and Bonnie. So, Bonnie will live a full life and then when she dies, Elena will get to live her life. Interesting plot twist.

Those goodbyes were touching: 

The feathers! 

Jeremy made it back! 

Elena’s sweet advice to Alaric about pain and grief after losing Jo: “You have to let yourself drown in it. Then, eventually, you’ll start to swim. And every single breath you fight for will make you stronger.” 

To Matt: “You’re human, loyal, and good.” 

And Damon’s goodbye with her was sweet. 

But that dance was a tad awkward…I mean, it would have been much more beautiful if they just swayed and talked or recreated the Ms. Mystic Falls Pageant dance. But, that slow-mo professional ballroom dance was a little weird.

The end of Elena’s story is kinda sad…But also, we knew Elena was going to go somehow because Nina was leaving the show. And, if you think about it, she and Bonnie will BOTH get to live happy, full lives. And the vamps will see Elena again in another lifespan.

So, it’s all good…I’m happy with that ending.

Those freaky witchpires lived and are on the loose in the current day with Lily!

And what was with that ominous, flash-forward, end scene with Cop-Matt (YAY!) and Damon watching over what looks like a decimated Mystic Falls? Did Lily and her witchpires do that? Kai? 

Can’t wait until next season!

Favorite Quotes From The Episode:

Stefan: I think in the end I needed him more than I needed her.

STEFAN CHOSE DAMON!!! BROTHERLY LOVE!

Elena: Bonnie Bennett, you have spent your entire life making sacrifices for me. Now it’s time I do it for you…

IT’S ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY SAID IT! ESPECIALLY YOU, ELENA! BONNIE HAS BEEN SACRIFICING HERSELF FOR ALL YOUR ASSES FOR YEARS!

Seriously, give Bonnie an award or something…

Stefan to Caroline: I understand if I have to wait for you. And I will…I’ll wait. And when you’re ready for me, I will be ready for you.

STEROLINE!!
