#in a perfect world this is the kalijah i want #the two of them making snarky faces at each other #and elijah looking generally unkept with his tee-shirts and his stubble and his sticky uppy all over the place hair #because i reject the idea that elijah only ever wears suits#elijah’s suits are a carefully planned facet of his apperence #like every other part of his personality #they are used as an intimidation factor #the lofty buisness man #royalty#he is above you #he does not descend to your level #we have only ever seen the careful and calculating elijah of mystic falls #but somewhere out there there is an elijah that wears tee shirts and has stubble and bed head and sleepy eyes #and that elijah is the same elijah that sucks bruises that don’t stick along katherine’s collar bone #because god damn nina #and they are snarky and glorious together and argue about who makes better coffee #and katherine is indignant and elijah amused and complient because he has 500 years of grovelling to do
Tonight’s episode was so boring. Nothing really exciting happened. I thought that’s what a mid-season finale was all about?
OooooOoo so Davina is going to remind Camille about her memories, big fucking deal.
Tonight’s episode almost felt like it could have been a conclusion with a few tweaks here and there. Who knows, maybe they had it left open in case the show was cancelled by mid-season; that’s just the impression I got.
TO didn’t even start out strong for me. It has always been repetitive. Julie Plec really is a one trick pony. Sure, a spinoff is supposed to take from the old show, but it’s meant to be new and different as well. All I see is Klaus’s story in MF transplanted into New Orleans.
Maybe I just don’t like ‘change’ but really, a great writer’s job is to convince. They are supposed to convince you to buy into their world and to leave your reservations at the door. There are little pockets of hope for this show here and there, but so far - as I’ve already said - I feel like I’m being fed shitty leftovers…not the good kind of leftovers that taste even better on the second night.
Camille is a terrible character. Actually, I don’t even think I can call her a character.
I don’t ship Elijah and Hayley because I don’t particularly like Hayley, and I don’t like the martyr superhero role she fuels for Elijah. It’s also a lovely rip off of Kalijah. Elijah will betray Klaus for Hayley just like he did for Katherine.
The only thing that genuinely puts a smile on my face when I watch the show is Davina and Josh being besties. The rest of the time I’m just laughing about how ridiculously contrived everything is.
His hormones must be all out of whack. That is the only reason I can think of to explain why he gets teary eyed in every scene of every episode.

Aw that Hayley with her witty one liners. Call Damon someone is stealing his thunder.
