So when Damon is willing to murder, maim and do whatever he wants to anyone if it means a chance to save Elena, it's noble. But when Davina accepts a position as regent to bring her dead boyfriend back to life, it's a shallow priority. Wow.
So what if she's young? Would you not hate her if she was 22 and not 16? No. You only hate her because she doesn't take crap from no one. She's a badass character who has the power to save and protect herself and those she loves, and uses it without harming anyone. She's loyal, friendly. She's the best character in both shows, and if you can't stand her for all her good qualities just because of her age, then she's not the problem.
Show me a good reason to hate her, and I might agree. Or agree to disagree. But when you show her age as a reason to bash her personality, her decisions, the things she does; when everyone else who's done shallower things get a pass, then your opinion doesn't worth a dime to me.
Davina haters are mostly Klaus lovers. Sadly there are many more of them on the internet than his haters. I for one am quite glad there is someone out there who can put these cretins to their places. Though the show is about those cretins (hence the name), so they will always prevail at the end. This is a show about villains being the protagonists. So anyone who will be trying to do what's morally right will come off as an antagonist or annoying. Davina suffers from this. She's my favorite character in both shows, and the only one I can relate to, but as far as the plot is concerned, she's an antagonist and doomed to lose in the end.
I've had a lot of inactive times, and due to that I cannot in good conscience vote Yes or No on a serious matter like this. I choose to abstain from this voting and sit this one out.
Witchcraft in a bloodline doesn't simply die off. That logic indicates that Qetsiyah's magic should have vanished long before it reached Bonnie, and clearly it didn't.
I don't understand what makes you assume that. The only Bennett ancestors we've seen are Abby (mother), Sheila (grandma), Ayanna and Qetsiyah; but nothing whatsoever indicated that they had witch husbands.
Amara wasn't a witch. She was nothing more than human. Simplest proof is that she died after Bonnie was made the anchor, but the first to pass through her was Qetsiyah. Amara died a human and passed on.
But it doesn't matter whether Silas had lived in the era of Jesus or dinossaurs or whatever existed before them.. Witchcraft in a bloodline doesn't simply die off. That logic indicates that Qetsiyah's magic should have vanished long before it reached Bonnie, and clearly it didn't.
I know Stefan's his doppelganger, but Tessa revealed that doppelgangers are actually more random than necessarily blood-related. Tom Avery is proof of this.
I agree that Elena must be a traveller/witch because Katerina was a witch and most probably, Amara herself must've been a traveller because she was very associated with that crowd back in the day and I don't think it's a coincidence that Katherine would be a Traveller, too.
But here's the thing, Stefan and Damon could be directly descendant from Silas because he might have had siblings, same for Amara, but none of them had children of their own, obviously.
So I voted yes to Elena being an untapped witch only because of Katherine while I voted yes for doppelgangers not being entirely human, but then again, they were, after all, created to be the most mortal versions of Amara and Silas as possible, which would, in effect, make them very human and non-supernatural
. . .
I'm revoking my vote and voting neutral for the doppelganger supernaturalism parts.
Mortal, yes. But doppelgangers are supernatural. I understand the ring example is now not as relevant for - in favor to your argument - her witch side might have taken effect to bring Ric back to life. But Elijah did say (while being oblivious to witchcraft being part of Petrova line) that "a doppelganger is a supernatural occurence, odds are the ring won't work": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCxaAyfRflQ&feature=youtu.be&t=91
About Silas thing; whether Silas had an offspring or not, a doppelganger wouldn't appear unless they were from a bloodline of any person that is blood-related to Silas, therefore making the male doppelganger line witches. Also in the comment above I posted a link of a video in which Silas calls Damon "a distant nephew", indicating they are from a bloodline of one of his siblings, therefore making the Salvatore bloodline a line of witches.
I don't remember Qetsiyah saying doppelgangers appear in random, but I'm not saying she didn't so I'm saying she must have meant that they appear "at a random branch of the bloodline" (logically there should be many unless every member had 1 child only), because it would be weird if Matt - granted he lives long enough - had a grandchild that looks like Stefan, which according to what you said, should be possible. Tom Avery has to be born to one of the many branches of the bloodline that comes from Silas' immediate family, which ultimately makes him too an untapped witch.
unless it's confirmed in some way that we missed, we cannot assume that.
no, she's just a human .. protected by magic against magic, empowered by magic.. and granted 8 lives .. 9, if you count her own ..
she's a cat ! or more likely, a werecat !!
Tyler's a weird one, since he didn't remember it after becoming a vampire either ..
^^ it's gotta have something to do with them being untapped. because somewhere in season 1 Tyler was compelled by Damon, and we all know werewolves are immune to compulsion.
or it too is one of the many other inconsistencies we're trying to make sense of.
I think logically she has to be. She's a direct descendant of Katherine, who was a traveller witch.
Freya was hardly able to stop Aurora, who is not as old as Klaus, and neither an original nor a hybrid. Klaus would decimate her if he wanted.
I've never seen them, so I don't know.
I've been wondering .. what if Bonnie's heart stops by a normal cause, like drowning, gunshot, electric shock, etc., but then she's brought back to life by CPR? Would the window be enough to break Kai's spell, or should brain death occur for Elena to wake up?
Damn, too late to ask this at Comin Con, is it ..
here's my questions (seriously this time)
for Ian: will you be directing more episodes this season, or are you planning on pursuing a career as a director? Because I loved the episode you directed and I would love to see more of your work.
for Candice: between us, if you had 1 wish for your character that the writer promised would grant it whatever it is, what would it be? (please say more actions scenes)
for Kat Graham: for 3 years now I've been imagining how awesome Bonnie would be as a vampire. What is your opinion on this? How would you feel about playing a vampire ex-witch Bonnie?
for Danielle Campbell: Now that Davina has the power of nine tribes, what is she gonna do with all that power? And is her place permanent?
for Julie Plec: 2 questions:
1) In either of the shows, will we be introduced to a new species this season?
PS: combinations (vamp-wolf, vamp-witch) don't count.
2) Who would win: Bonnie vs Davina (in a magical place where both characters are at their strongest)
I got 1 question to Julie Plec:
"How can you sleep at night?"
