I want to know what people think what Silas is. I think he is a vampire - witch hybrid, I heard theories of about him being a necromancer and him being the original werewolf, I like those theories.
I think he was a witch who used on himself with the help of Quetchia or something,the vampirism spell! That explains why Ayanna knew about the spell and told Esther that spirits forbid it!He is the original of all originals vampires!So i think Klaus should be scared because he might be on his list!
While he may be a vampire he clearly has more tricks than the vampire species that were a result from Esther's Originals. He can cast illussions, read memories through blood, and project his appearance as another person which suggest he is not completely powerless like a witch turned into a vampire. I would say he is his own species that is a cousin to the vampire race spawned throuugh the originals.
I'm thinking that he is like THE orginal vampire, but also because he was a with it is different from the Mikaelson's. So like, the Originals the we know were human before they turned, so when any witch it turned of their line they become a vampire just as a human would. But because Silas was a witch and has his own line the effects are different, making himhave some witch abilities but he can't cast Expression spells because he couldn't do it when a witch.
I agree! I also think that since he has shape-shifted into the form of Shane, he will be taking advantage of Bonnie while in this form. I am also hoping that Rebekah heals the real Shane who is still on the island with her and they both return to Mystic Falls. I think that Silas is in his own body but while his body is still healing, he is using the professor's image before using his own body. I have seen this technique used on True Blood by the shapeshifters on that show and they call the actual technique "skinwalking" so that is really what Silas is doing. He can "skinwalk" and "shapeshift".
Ok what happend in the last episode when we saw Silas as Shane it was all in her head. I know this because he was wearing the same clothes as the real Shane. "Shapeshifters" dont copy clothes only form. I believe Silas is a vampire that has the same abilities the Originals have, but just more advanced because of his age. So he can "plague the dreams" of people to make them see whoever he wants them to see, hence why no one else sees Shane only Bonnie. The spell Esther used was the spell Qetsyia used. The Originals arethe original family of vampiresand Silas is the orginal vampire. Thats my beliefs.
Thanks for your post and I went back on my DVR to look again at the shapeshifters on True Blood about the "clothing issue" and yes, you are correct about the form. So, you are saying that Silas was all in Bonnie's head? Are you referring to the scene on the island and he said he healed her (her back wound) or when he approached her when she was going into her home? Both times no one else was around to see him. She was alone both times so I do not believe that it was in her head. That would only apply if others were around when he was talking to her.
I just read another spoiler that Julie Plec said that the visions or conversations that Bonnie is having with Shane/Silas is in her head. Silas is somehow sending these visions and messages to her. So you are right! Also, Julie Plec said that Shane is still on the island and left for dead but she is not saying for sure if he is dead or dies or will be saved. I guess she does not want to give away too many spoilers.
If Silas is a witch than why does he need blood (Jeremy's) to be risen from his slumber? I thought witches don't have to feed or anything. I'm so confused!
What do you think?
