The Vampire Diaries season 8: Between redundancy and nostalgia, a mixed record for the first part of the season

Cinema 25 December, 2016

Discover our record of the first part of season 8 of The Vampire Diaries, which is currently on break until January 13th!
Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries is currently winter hiatus and then allows you to take stock of the first part of the final season of the show. To complete her series, Julie Plec called on Kevin Williamson, who co-directed the show with her in her early days. Together, they decided to return to the basic elements of the series, including the relationship between Stefan and Damon Salvatore. This could have been an original idea for the series if the subject had not been used during that – in fact – almost every season of The Vampire Diaries . Yes, if we have one thing to reproach the vampire series of the CW, it is its lack of renewal and originality. Only last year, Stefan found himself having to save his brother, and, in season 8, nothing has changed . Yes, Stefan will always want to have forced his brother to turn into a vampire. Yes, Damon will always have a little grudge against his little brother for the same reasons. But did not Stefan suffer enough? It’s been years that Damon is a vampire, yet he seems to have matured at all – except when Elena was around.
What we like most in this ultimate season, then, is not the main plot, which is unpleasant, but rather the different relationships between the characters. Stefan has finally taken the step with Caroline, and if for the moment their couple remains uncertain, we still had very beautiful scenes Steroline. Moreover, they are not the only couple in the show, and Bonnie and Enzo may have even doubled. The young couple already had to go through a lot of tests and this season, Bonnie proved how much she wanted to Enzo. First of all by choosing him rather than Damon, his best friend, at the orders of Sybil. But also by being ready to sacrifice himself so that he can recover his humanity. There is no denying it, The Vampire Diaries has given us beautiful scenes of romance in this season, which had largely satisfy the shippers couples of the series .
Finally, we quite like the way that the series to return us to the first seasons , either through the titles of episodes, dialogues or flashbacks with Elena. It is a beautiful way to remind us what the series was, where it comes from and we realize how much time has passed since. We hope in any case that the second part of the season will continue to introduce some elements of the past – we already know that we will be entitled to the Miss Mystic Falls – but it will also be a little more original level The main plot. While waiting to discover later, know that the CW has just unveiled the synopsis of episode 8 of season 8 of The Vampire Diaries , and it is already melty! What did you think of the first part of the final season of The Vampire Diaries?
