I'm really concerned how the writing or fleshing out of TVD villains is taking a turn for the worse.If you look at the show and I prefer starting with season 2 (which imo was the height of the show's writing prowess) it's troubling...
Just look at the trajectory
Season 2 Villain supreme=Klaus - wants to unleash his werewolf side and become the most powerful immortal
Season 3 Villain supreme=Esther (not bearing in mind Mikael being killed 2 or 3 episodes after he was over hyped) - wants to kill her family and so all vampires
Season 4 Villain supreme=Silas - wants to basically kill himself and dodge 'damnation' with fellow supernaturals
Honestly the villains not only have poorer stories but they are getting weaker as well.I mean it's really embarassing that Silas could not get free of Damon choking him.I say it's a travesty really.Assuming Bonnie is the other major death will we really have something to look forward to in season 5?
