OMGGGGGGGGGG! E’erybody was predicting that Elena would make the changeee early on (way back when the series was starting), but it’s been so off the radar as of late that it’s like we all forgot. Then last night’s finale happened! Can you say “game-changer”? O.M.G. What else is there even to SAY?
It’s no secret that the details on TVD have gotten confusing as of late. It’s messy, this life with vampires and werewolves and witches, friends! Klaus was captured, but not before he could switch bodies with Tyler (right?), so now Tyler is gone (mega-frowns), and Klaus lives on. And because Klaus lives on, NONE of those that he made into vampires are dead — and that’s GOOD because we’re still pretty sure that Stefan and Damon both fall into that category.
Nobody but Bonnie knows that it wasn’t Klaus who died in that coffin, which means there were SO MANY SAD MAYBE-GOODBYES in the mix here. The most heartbreaking? Obvssss Elena’s to Damon. Elena finally told Damon that it was Stefan who had her heart, and that maybe if they’d met first things would be different. CUT TO: Damon’s memory conjuring a long-ago chat with a pre-vampire obsession Elena. The two shared a cute little convo (heavy on the chemistry, too!), before Damon compelled Elena to forget. Which means… Survey sayyys: DAMON *DID* MEET ELENA FIRST. And that makes him want to die. I mean it doesn’t! It actually inspires him to fight off Alaric! And he’s winning! But… DUN DUN DUNNNNNN, he’s only winning because Alaric is dying! AND ALARIC IS ONLY DYING BECAUSE ELENA IS.
Ready for the plot twist? C’mon, you know it. E-Girl would be hella dead, except that Paul Wesley’s Wife (Name? There are too many characters, guys!) helped Elena through her little bump on the head — which turned out to be bleeding on the brain — by…
TURNING HER INTO AN EM-EFFING VAMPIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Elena is finally a vampire! ALL THAT’S LEFT TO SAY IS, LET THE GAAAMES BEGIN!
Final thought: Yeah, also… Poor Tyler! Poor Rebekah. Oh, and poor Alaric. Man, this show…
