The Vampire Diaries season 8: Episode 9, Damon recovers his humanity, our critic!

Cinema 21 January, 2017

While the episode 9 of season 8 of The Vampire Diaries has just been broadcast on the CW, let us return together on the main events of “The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch”!
Is Damon again on the side of the Gentiles? And yes the meltynauts, after weeks in which Bad Damon shook the streets of the country, the election of the Miss Mystic Falls was the ideal theater to allow our favorite vampire to find the best part of himself: Elena. And it was time! After Tyler’s murder or the horrible deal with Cade, Damon now has to face up to his mistakes if he wants to be worthy of forgiveness by the time Elena wakes up. While the editorial ‘of melty proposed to discover if Caroline and Stefan were destined to go to hell in season 8 of The Vampire Diaries , back together on “The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch” aired last night on the CW . And the least that can be said is that it was an episode to nostalgia assumed. Stuffed with references for any self-respecting fan, he invited us to another Miss Mystic Falls ceremony. The opportunity for the writers to make us relive the beginnings of the love story Delena. We’re not going to lie, it’s been a long time since an episode had not been so successful. Combining action twist, memories and dose of love and romance brilliantly, “The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch” offered us a real dive in the best moments of the series . A few weeks before the final end of The Vampire Diaries, we could not have dreamed better.
It must be said that Paul Wesley is absolutely scary when he embodies the ripper. Never as determined to follow the path indicated by Cade as now, Stefan does not intend to let his brother, growing melancholy, prevent him from doing what he makes euphoric: kill without any scruple. Her goal is clear, return to Mystic Falls in order to exterminate all trace of Elena in her memories. And it was gratifying that our heroine was the motor and the heart of this episode where everyone remembered the very first election of their life and which was also overwhelming at all levels. If the reunion of Caroline and Stefan are far from happening as expected, we loved the confrontation of the pretty blonde and Damon. Giving her body and soul to bring Damon back from darkness, the young woman reminds us how much she has grown since the beginning of the show. Strong, intelligent, unselfish, she surprises us by its ability to bypass the obstacles to make real assets . Yes, she did not manage to convince Stefan to fight for their couple but she excelled in regards to Damon since it is thanks to her that he is finally rid of Sybil. Is the Steroline couple destroyed forever? We will have to wait to get the heart clear but it is certain that there will be damage probably irreparable.
For their part, Bonnie and Enzo clearly form the most adorable couple in the series. In addition to unconditionally loving, these two would do absolutely everything to spend eternity together. And we can not help seeing in them a Stelena power as their declarations of love and complicity are at the height of the first couple of The Vampire Diaries . Will Bonnie drink the blood of Enzo? Strangely enough, and even though it would be very dangerous, it seems to be the most credible. Indeed, we have hardly believed that the beautiful Enzo can become a human. Finally, Matt and Dorian threw themselves headlong into the fight against the sirens. A duet effective and which reserved for us besides a lot of surprises. So, Matt has never been so badass and we love his determination. In short, “The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch” has particularly enjoyed. Playing on our memories and emotions, this episode clearly prepared us to say goodbye to the most emblematic show of the CW. Will Damon manage to manage his guilt? Will Stefan fight to find Caroline? Is Sybil permanently out of harm’s way? All these answers and much more from next week on the American network. What did you think of this episode?
