From where I stand, season 5 has been filled with many interesting themes. I see a large number of the fans don't really like this season just 'cos there isn't a specific theme. What I say is: bring it on ! There are some many questions that are being neglected, like the travellers part. That part is only just begun and I know that it will make us all jump. There are some things that I really didn't like about this season, like the whole doppelgangers are meant to be thing. I mean sure, the idea of a soulmate is great and all, but really? The universe? The whole story about the fates of the doppelgangers is just, silly, if you ask me. And another thing.. they shouldn't have made Damon go on a killing-spree. I know that it was predictable, that that's what Damon usualy does, but the relationship with Elena did change him and we should have seen just that after the break-up. Though, Enzo has a part in Damon's actions. I just can't wait to see what happens next, it's a confusing and jumpy season we never know what to expect and I really like that. Not everything is about the love triangle, though, and yet that's all the fans ever talk about and seem to care about. No one's really looking into the background story and wondering about the real questions, like what's with the travellers, what are their intentions. And the other side! I'd like to see more of that place through Bonnie. Like, what's it like, what happens to all of them there. We need like a preview of the place and maybe the new villan Markos might want to do something about the other side. And another thing I hate about this season is.. there are way to many breaks, do they wanna make us go mad?
