THANK YOU! So many people are complaining like crazy about this new story line, but I actually like it. When you have a show like TVD you have to add certain aspects into the storyline that may be a bit confusing at first. People are saying that there are to many plot holes with silas, but its because they haven't fully explained him yet. This is 3 episodes into the new season and we really don't now that much yet about our new villian. We do know that he is just an immortal, despite the idiots that think he is a vampire and say that hasn't ever been explain. Silas himself said he wasn't a vampire and that should be confirmation enough. Just because Jeremy beat his ass doesn't mean he isn' powerful, the five's destiny is to kill silas so they need to be stronger. As far as Stephen and Elena being destined to be with each other, I think that is interesting. It's been done a lot before, but it is also something I wasn't expecting. It hads a whole new dynamic to them as a couple. I think we are going to have a lot of new concepts introduced this new season and I am excited. True fans of TVD need to get off their high horse and realize that this show isn't always going to be exactly how they want it. Its going to change and they are going to add new story lines in the mix to keep the story going. Season 4 had some off moments towards the middle, but it picked back up after Elena turned off her humanity. So far season 5 has a lot of interesting new things happening and I am exctied to see where it goes.
I also like it that they change it, some parts are unexplained and it's not straight forward. This keeps it dynamic, interesting and things to think about, even after it's over hopefully.
I think it's stupid there is nothing interesting or clever about it. It just confuses viewers and destroys canon not to mention it makes plot holes and opens up questionsthat will probably never be answered. Then the Vampire vs Immortal debate is stupid. 4 people have stated he is a vampire and no one ever said he was an entirely different species called an Immortal, but somehow that makes more sense? GTFO. The plot is starting to get better, but the new changes destroyed some fo the good things that I liked about the show
Confusion (up to a degree) can be good. I also don't like everything answered and zero plot holes, that makes it too straight forward and well "too easy". Anyway, regarding Silas you can view vampires as a shadow species of "Immortal" species kind of like how Stefan is a shadow self to Silas himself as a person. He likely doesn't have fangs, he isn't hurt by the sun or vervain (latter unverified but likely), doens't have any hightened senses aside from his psychic ability so the only thing he has in common with vampires are his immortality through blood as a life force.
The amount of confusion now is ridiculous and unbearable. Also, if Esther hadn't used the white oak tree and vervain in the originals creation there wouldn't be much in common with them and regular vampires either. However, like I said, I don't fell like getting into a Vampire-Immortal debate.
Quit bitching having something new is always great besides a show's mythology always goes south look at Charmed and Supernatural.
I've watched both and I don't know what you're talking about. Also, I have the right to an opinion so you can screw off and quit harassing me like a whining 5 year old that's mad someone else has an opinion.
I don't think the confusion is as bad as some people percieve it to be. Yeah there are a lot of unanswered questions and plot holes right now, but that is how you keep people watching in a TV show like TVD. I have a feeling most of this will be explained in further detail as the season goes on and I am interested to see what happens with this whole new mythology they are bringing in. I mean yeah they said esther was the original witch, but maybe it was just thought that she was and maybe she only thought that Tatia was the original dopleganger. I mean none of the characters knew about Silas till last season., including the originals if I remember correctly. I like when shows keep me confused up until the last minute because I think it adds a different persepective of the story, if that makes sense. I mean TVD is one of the few shows I almost have to rewatch before a new season because so many details matter and are brought back up again. I am currently rewatching right now because they started mentioning stuff I didn't even really remember and I rewatched the first two seasons a year ago. The show has a lot going on, but that is what makes me and probably many others want to see it till the end.
There is a difference between screwing up previously set mythology and timelines and introducing new ones. Also, unless they throw in something like "oh why does..." blah blah I highly doubt we'll get the answers to the questions either. It doesn't make me want to continue watching it if the writers are going to butcher the show. Especially for someone like me who watches for the mythology and storyline.
What do you think?
