Quote aerinha: Buffy had a great human element. Sometimes the monster was a monster and sometimes it was a metaphor for a life issue. Diaires could use that.
Imagine if Uncle John (who should always have been an uncle the adoption thing was dumb) became Elena's guardian either by legally gaining control or after .jenna died and got in the way of Stelena. Human issue, giving them something to triumph over, that was a break from the season long supernatural issue.
Their biggest prob is that every ep has to harp on the season's problem and the characters are moved around to forward it instead of their actions in life ofrwarding the action.
I liked .stelena, I just got bored with them because they wrote them like an old married couple. No love scenes after the first one, breaking up everyn time there was a bump.
Where was Elena's worry that Stefan might want Katherine back? Why couldn't ripper Stefan turn good over the pain of seeing Elena kiss Damon? Why did we have to know who she picked before she died?
Imagine if Elena went off the bridge, vanished, Matt was in a coma and the others spent an ep fighting over who she was going to before er death. Matt wakes, can't remember because vampire Elena compelled him not to.
Sharon I can't figure out who they are jerking around with the sire bond. Til now I would swear Delena would never happen, they were stringing along fans so they kept watching while she'd wind up with Stefan. This could be more of a same, use the bond to say it was the only reason she wanted him. Or they could now be toying with .stelena fans. Give them a hope that it is all fake so they keep watching.
Joey did pick Pacey, but KW wasn't with Dawson by then. However that s driven by fan retraction.
Season three started out ok, but Elena should have moved on when she said she would. Dated a human or two, then just when she kissed .damkn, Stefan sees it and the pain makes him feel. He spends the rest of the season faking being bad so Klaus won't know and to spy on how close Elena is to Damon and for how long. For me it fell apart when Elena Went right back to begging him to love her again.
For what it's worth, Kevin Williamson actually DID write the final episode of Dawson's Creek. Who is to say if that was the actual outcome he intended from the very start... but he did co-write the final episode where Pacey gets Joey. So who knows... maybe he'll fly against expectations again.
For what it's worth, I think Elena will probably die or something in the end and neither brother will be able to live happily ever after with her. But that's just my guess.
It has been so long on Dawson I forgot Kevin wrote the final ep. I only remembered he wrote the drippy ep where Dawson was Joey's "due North star" and then once he left, they put her with Pacey for a couple seasons. No saying if he made the choice on who she picked or not, but it does give me some hope on the Delena front.
I agree with you on the ending. I posted is somewhere on this board at one point, that based on the ep they were writing when they supposedly dreamed up Diaries' end, I suspect Elena will die to save the brothers, thus picking them both.
Did you read the original books? That was the ending to the first 3, but fan HATED it so she added the 4th book. By the time I read them in high school, all 4 were out so I knew it wasn't going to end with Elena dying, but that would have been sooooo unsatisfying. I would hope the TV writers realize there was a reason fans hated it and avoid it, but since it would be the last ep, what do they care if fans are mad?
I'd love it if they let Elena fake her death, like Katherine did in the books, because she knows it is the only way the brothers will bond and that she'll get out. Cut to 80 years later and the brothers go back to Mystic to find someone (Elena the vampire) left flowers on the graves of all her family and friends. They look at each other and it is own. Sort of an it's over, but not over, leaving fans to forever fight over who got her in the end.
I think it would be a great twist with the cure if Damon accidentally became human, breaking the bond. In the later books, I'm told as I stopped at 4, he did accidentally regain his humanity, but then changed back later.
