I dont understand how you all complain about the things that the MF gang gets away with but then are all like the Originals are victims.. That doesnt make any sense. With the exception of Damon and Stefan when he goes off the deep end, the MF gang doesnt go out of there way to mess with people. Every beef theyve had has been because people came to them trying to start something. I really enjoyed Kols character but i have no issue with him being killed, i do have an issue with the way he was killed but thats more about continuity breakers, but he was trying to kill them for something that his brother had put them up to.
I dont think theyve been put lower than humans and stephan admitted that he didnt try his hardest when arm wrestling mason. I will agree though theyve been turned into little more than cannon fodder. The only creature that got a worse cut than werewolves were the hybrids.
It could be just as simple as their not being anything special about it. Even the werewolf clan klaus is from probably isnt the original pack. As this is manily a vampire driven show like true blood they just might keep werewolves under powered
Mystic Falls: I agree with you I dont personally believe that Tatia was anything special. As far as why doppelganger blood was required for the the spell to bind them all together again i believe that it was because she needed to bind them all together with something that they all had in common to begin with. Which would be Elainas blood because she was the doppelganger of the person used to bind them in the first place. The only part i dont agree with you on is the instances in which nature tries to maintain the balance. I personally believe that the balance that natrue maintains is generally a one shot rule. I dont think it takes into account the many ways people will go about trying to break it unless that to causes an imbalance. Silas becomes immortal/nature makes (HIS) doppelganer line- Esther makes TO/Nature makes them weak to some of the ingredients used to make them, Esther curses Klaus/Nature makes (PETROVA) doppelganger line. The only thing i will say that truly confuses me is why the blood of the doppelganger is needed to make more hybrids.
The balance of not letting Klaus be a hybrid is not actually an act of Nature its an act of the servants of nature. If your religious that would be like saying that the act of the pope was an act of god. They still have personal agendas that they are gonna go after. So there really is no reason it would be required except that doppelganger blood is a Powerful binding agent. I want to emphasize that line Doppelganger blood is a POWERFUL BINDING AGENT. Esther didnt say it was the ONLY binding agent. She could have never used Doppelganger blood before, that could have been something that was just taught to her.
Theres nothing to say that the balance has to be permanent. Also i doubt that doppelganger blood is the only thing capable of being a binding agent of new curses as like i said i dont believe tatia was a doppelganger to be begin an i believe the petrova doppelganger was only useful in breaking that one curse. People keep saying well then why use Elainas blood in the plot to kill all of the Originals well thats as easy as it being the fact that her ancestors blood was the thing that joined them as vampires anyway. Also as far as why use it to turn rick well one she was a doppelganger so her blood was useful also because she knew there were so many protecting Elaina that Ester new Klaus would hesitate to kill her because without her he couldnt make more hybrids. Not that it would stop him from killing her just that it would take time for him to pick which was more important which pretty much happend.
The issue with looking outside of the confines of the show is that you can honestly come up with anything that you wanted because there are a lot of different directions that magic can take. Also people keep saying that certain people are trust worth sources because they have their own agenda but then that would mean that anything not specifically shown on the show would be suspect because everyone has their own agenda. I personally believe that Tatia was not a doppelganger and that the petrova doppelganger line originates with the hybrid curse.
The spell causes tatias blood to bind the curse, nature creates doppelganger to unbind the curse and the combination of the two balance each other out requiring the sacrifice of the doppelganger to unbind the curse but needing the blood of the doppelganger to create more hybrids. I also belive that its blood line baised. Regardless of whether or not tatia had her baby before the curse the baby was still born with her blood. They make a great deal out of not believing that there is another doppelganger because Klause slaughters her family and they make just a big of a deal showing how she had a family out of wedlock and then Klaus going through all that trouble to make elaina human again.
I also belive that the doppelganger gene expands and contracts meaning if tatias child has 5 kids each of the 5 has the ability to pass on the gene which is it expanding untill another is born. Also we dont know what the actually time line is between appearances in doppelgangers there could easily be 4 or 5 at one time. They just never met any of them. Even Klaus and Elijah meeting katherine had more to do with her just showing up then them finding her.
Just my own thoughts but like i said before there are some things you have to take at face value because if you expand to far out of the show you can just make up what you want to fit your point of view.
Also werewolfs are not a counter balance to vampires they already existed and prolly had for a while before that iteration of the vampire curse appeared.
I will make one huge speculative leap that thats not really supported by anything except for random parts of the show. I believe the reason Silas has a doppelganger is because the spell that he used is prolly more akin to the spell esther used on rick. Rick had no weaknesses excpet for elaina dying. I believe that his spell was a closer variation to that then the one she used to make her kids because she bound them to something that was immortal and wouldnt die as opposed to a human life.
Has it really ever been stated that doppelganger blood really does anything useful accept break the spells that it was used for. So even if stephan were a super doppelganger it would mean nothing. Also by that logic Elaina would also be some sort of an enhance doppelganger because katherines blood sire damon who sired her. Secondly i dont think any traits are passed down from sire to offspring because if that was the case than all of Klaus's offsprings would have some werewolf in them which i doubt. (Though you could make a case that that is the reason that most of them vampires in his bloodline seem to be extremely vicious)
Im also still trying to figure out if tatia( i think that was katherines ancestors name) was special herself or just some girl whose blood they took. Because from looking at it, it seems that the only reason doppelgangers occur is because nature trying to create loopholes or to balance out spells that werent suppose to occur. I believe the petrova doppelganger line is tied to Klaus as opposed to vampires in general.
Lastly as far as the magic thing goes. Its been stated that you cant be an abomination to nature and use magic and youve pretty much have to stick to canon on that one or you could just start making up things out of the blue to support any theory. The 1 exception i see to that would be expression which isnt confined to the laws of nature. But that brings up my next question when every one mentions possible witches why dont they bring up any of the other childrent besides becca cause they could have all gotten it from their mom. This is just my own thoughts not trying to put anyone elses down.
