      This! I am not at all excited for this season.

      • Franfry says:

        Really? I’m a whole lot more excited than I was before last season. I have hopes that Stefan will get a storyline that doesn’t revoke around the insufferable Elena. The Silas thing sounds interesting. I know I’ll probably be disappointed but I can still hope :).

  5. Cherry says:

    Without the Originals this season on Vampire Diaries will be great. We can focus on the main cast once again. I loved the Originals but they seemed to grow tiresome being the constant threat.

    • Mari says:

      I think that’s because they mostly ended up being too powerful and non-killable, but didn’t really have a good purpose for being there. Hopefully moving them to their own show will help with that.

  6. Fabe says:

    Human Katherine is gonna be the bomb. I’m so happy they are making her a main character this year! It will bring some much needed life back into the show!

  7. Danielle H. says:

    Not that the Vampire Diaries isn’t one of my fav shows, but they need to get an overarching purpose going on here. The show can’t go on forever. It feels like it just meanders along and they keep coming up with plot point after plot point then sit down and figure out another one. It isn’t organic in any way.

  8. JA says:

    Wow, Ian Somerhalder looks amazing with shorter hair. And I thought he couldn’t get any better looking…Looking forward to a new season of TVD!!! Can’t wait!

  9. Cassie says:

    Not really looking forward to the DE this season, i’d rather see them both with other people. But Silas and Katherine omg i knew something freaky like that would happen :D but i miss kat as a vampire though and this season is gonna be awesome

  10. Sheila says:

    Yay, Russell Tovey!
