I am gonna start this by telling you that I have a couple of reasons for my opinion and my hatred for the show and all those reasons are interrelated to each other.
To be honest, in real sense I stopped watching the serial a long time ago but still kept my eyes on it to see myself being right. So here are the reasons: Mainly the reason is that Elena, Damon and Stefan is messing with everything that a lot of us care about.Here Goes :
1. There in real sense for me(and I believe for most of you) is no character except Damon, Stefan and Elena.
Think about it and I am sure you already came across it. Every other character in series is nothing but a plot device. Their behaviour and actions isn’t based on “what they would do, or, what they should have done by people” but indirectly on ” The Love Triangle”. Audience is being manipulated in believing that other characters have stories too. And this is the same reason why many characters since the beginning have died, they are written as to how they affect the love triangle. I will present a very strong yet unseen example:
Remember the Alaric appears when Damon goes to his grave to drink in episode 2 of season 4. We are supposed to believe it’s about Dalaric, I believed it at first too but I am sorry because it’s not; Its about Delena. I will prove my point; when Alaric gets back for sometime at the end of season and meets Damon – that’s when it stuck me. It was supposed to be about Damon and Alaric yet they talk about “Get the girl” or “You have no idea how she feels about you” etcetera. It’s all about making Elena and Damon happen, there is nothing about Dalaric – just lies.
2. Plot often makes no sense, but what matters is “The Love triangle” Here is a thing, remember in season 5 when Silas become mortal and also a witch and promises Damon and Elena to bring Bonnie back. We were counting on that remember. What they plan is that Silas is gonna bring Bonnie back and die – they way it happened with Jeremy and Bonnie. But before that Silas wants to destroy the other side so he won’t get stuck there. Can anyone answer how the hell would he bring Bonnie back from the other side if he is first gonna destroy the other side for his death? There is no other side to bring bonnie back from. And why is hell didn’t anyone see it?
Some of you may argue that Bonnie could’ve been bought back without other side, but no. Why? Remember what Damon tells Elena when they find Amara (and she being mortal)? He says that the fate of the place where Bonnie currently resides depends on Amara and they have to protect her, so other side matters. How many episode did you waste in that?
There are other minor things too, for example, When Damon finds Silas disguised as Alaric in the tunnels(or something), why doesn’t Silas see that Damon suspected him? Why doesn’t instead of saying “Damon Stop” he simply uses his powers to free himself? And from Bonnie too? …. In season 2 Damon and Stefan try to kill Catherine and almost fail, but when Elena tries to kill her in season 4 – she alone almost kills her. How? I care to know.
In season 5 Jeremy and Silas pick a fight. And Silas says that he cannot control Jeremy and isn’t stronger than him either, then how does he kill him in season 4 so easily? – The list can go on.
3. Again, The Love Triangle makes a scene look like a joke. It is just that there are times when they discuss the a topic related to Delena + Stelena, but what they should do is … well something different. Travellers in season 5 take buckets of blood from Stefan and Elena. You notice what they discussed there? It was hilarious. They should have been talking about their racing hearts, not about relationships. Am I right or Am I right?
