The Vampire Diaries
Season 8 Episode 16: “I Was Feeling Epic”
Directed by Julie Plec
Written by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec
Created by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec
Starring Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice King, Zach Roerig, Matthew Davis, Michael Malarkey
The CW
Air Date: Friday, March 10th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Vampire Diaries, they needed to lure Katherine, queen of hell, out of hiding so they planned Stefan and Caroline’s (Paul Wesley, Candice King) wedding. The traitor was the newly returned Kelly Donovan (Melinda Clarke). The wedding was beautiful with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) as minister. It was the reception where things got hairy, as the house exploded with Bonnie (Kat Graham) and the twins inside. The girls siphoned Bonnie’s magic to protect them, and it was only with Enzo’s (Michael Malarkey) encouragement that she was able to give a lifesaving magic lesson to the girls. Bonnie collapsed as Vicki Donovan (Kayla Ewell) rang the bell.

Before the start of the finale, the cast and creators gave us “Forever Yours,” a look back at the love stories, friendships, and the power of family that has moved through this little vampire series for eight seasons. It’s amazing to see how young they were at the beginning and how at the end, with all the smiles and the darkness.

Spoilers below for the very last episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Last time on The Vampire Diaries, Kai (Chris Wood) gave Cade (Wolé Parks) Elena’s coffin, but kept the dagger for himself. Cade wanted Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to fetch it for him. The brothers knocked Kai out and took him to the Armory. He taunted Caroline (Candice King) saying he knew what would help the twins. He siphoned magic from the walls, and stalked the little girls. Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Caroline saved them. Stefan tricked Damon and went to kill Cade himself, but that didn’t work (even with a bell plan). Cade made Damon choose between saving Stefan or Elena, but instead Damon sacrificed himself. Just as Cade was readying to send dead Damon to hell, Bonnie (Kat Graham) showed up and fought for his soul. That struggle only stopped once Stefan came back and killed him. Bonnie locked Kai up in a lonely world with an annoying song on loop. He revealed that Katherine was now the queen of hell.

Last time on The Vampire Diaries, we saw how Kai Parker (Chris Wood) escaped halfway from hell, via bell tolling. He started deteriorating and revealed evil intent (surprise) to Damon (Ian Somelhalder), before stealing away Elena’s coffin (and after promising to bring her back). Dorian kidnapped Stefan (Demetrius Bridges, Paul Wesley), and shot him for destroying his life in the past… then called Matt with regret. Stefan and Cade (Wolé Parks) had a talk when Stefan was on the brink of death, but Stefan wanted to live. Alaric told Caroline (Matthew Davis, Candice King) the girls were magically acting out.

Last time on The Vampire Diaries, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was trapped in his own head, and even Sybil (Nathalie Kelley) couldn’t get him out. It was up to Caroline and Bonnie (Candice King, Kat Graham) to go in through a back door. Caroline reunited with her mom (who arrested her), and Bonnie figured out that it was really Stefan (Paul Wesley) who needed to be in there (cameo by Vicki Donovan – Kayla Ewell). He jumped in and told Damon he forgave him, but there was a twist. It was Damon who needed to forgive Stefan, and he kept repeating it. Stefan was not having it, so he jumped out ready to have the whole town go up in hell flames. Damon to the rescue! Humanity back, he saved the town and is ready to make amends. Oh, and Cade (Wolé Parks) sent Sybil and Seline up in flames, after becoming corporeal on earth.

Last week on The Vampire Diaries, Sybil (Nathalie Kelley) played a little game – have Bonnie (Kat Graham) choose who should die, Damon or Enzo (Ian Somerhalder, Michael Malarkey). We all knew exactly who Bonnie would choose. Things got a little hairy, as Stefan kept jumping in the middle of the fight, because Damon made him his second. Stefan (Paul Wesley) was determined not to let either of them die. But once the ladies finally showed, Enzo chose Bonnie… by switching off his humanity. Then, predictably, Sybil went back on her word, Bonnie almost died and everyone ran. They did manage to capture Sybil with a giant tuning fork, but she still had Damon doing her bidding, which apparently included killing Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino).

Last week on The Vampire Diaries, Enzo and Damon (Michael Malarkey and Ian Somerhalder) acted as bloody errand boys for a watery monster aka The Siren (Nathalie Kelley), who demands the flesh of evil. Damon coped by shutting off his humanity switch, while Enzo used all of his will to keep his innermost thoughts to himself, while leaving clues from Homer’s Odyssey for Bonnie (Kat Graham). Alaric’s nanny almost died, but Caroline vamp-runned home in time to knock out the culprit (who bit out her own tongue instead of talking), saved the nanny via vampire blood, and check on the savvy children.

Last season on The Vampire Diaries, there were a bunch of flash forwards in the midst of the present hijinks. Mommy dearest and her Heretics took over Mystic Falls, but our gang evacuates it to make sure no one gets hurt – of course that did not work out that well. The Phoenix stone captured vampires and made them live in their own personal hell, and Damon and Stefan (Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley) got a taste of it. Damon’s was during the Civil War, and although he did manage to escape it, it followed him out, until he burned Elena’s coffin (or so he thought). Their stepdaddy, more of a monster than anyone, was resurrected, but was eventually killed again.

Caroline (Candice King) gave birth to Jo and Alaric’s magical twins, then they became a family. Bonnie and Enzo (Kat Graham and Michael Malarkey) fell in love. The huntress, Rayna, made everyone go on the run, until they managed to put her down, and it temporarily transferred to Bonnie. Damon sacrificed himself to save Bonnie, and was captured by a monster, Enzo falling prey soon after.

Starring Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Matthew Davis, Michael Malarkey, Scarlett Byrne, Todd Lasance
The CW
Air Date: Thursday, December 10, 2015, 8pm

The midseason finale of The Vampire Diaries helped move the plot closer to this “three years from now” world we keep getting glimpses of, and continued to explore the common TVD themes of kindness, family, revenge, and betrayal.

Spoilers ahead.

In Chicago three years from now, we see Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) together as a couple. At the beginning of the season, this idea would have seemed crazy, but the story has brought the two closer and closer together, and this couplet is very believable. Stefan declares that he must go save Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Caroline (Candice Accola King) because they are both people he cares about, and that Valerie can’t come because he won’t add a third to the list of people he loves that are missing.

The latest episode of The Vampire Diaries is titled, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me.” Can I actually NOT end that title with, “Kill Me?” The answer is no. But all you teens will have no idea what I’m talking about. Batman Forever, anyone?! U2?! Ugh, maybe I’m old. Let me know.

ONTO my spoiler-filled recap/review!

Three years from now, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is kidnapped at the very news studio where Caroline (Candice Accola King) used to run the show! Finally, we see it’s Lily (Annie Wersching) who has Damon captive. He apologizes, but…no…it’s not Lily; it’s someone else…

Do people spell “mommy” with an “ie?” The Vampire Diaries does! In Episode 7.7 of the hit CW show, “Mommie Dearest,” the concept of motherhood is further explored. Parenthood has been a growing theme all season and it’s clear that this very human, very soul-felt connection is a complex relationship that can often be both predictable and surprising.

Today, I’m going to take a look at the storylines of TVD 7.7 with a focus on our resident TVD mothers, Caroline (Candice Accola King), Lily (Annie Wersching), and Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore). With my weekly SPOILERS AHEAD WARNING, onward we go.
