I know The Originals is back 24th Feb on Syfy but dont think a date has been set for The Vampire Diaries yet although I've seen several fansites say February.
I thought this was a perfect opportunity to have a recap. For me The Originals is now the best although my heart will always belong to TVD due largely to Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder).
I think TVD lost its way a bit last series & the traveller/Silas storyline didn't work for me. It was too long winded & complicated and seriously how many times can people die & come back to life.
This series has got off to a much better start although a tad slow. I loved the Damon/Bonnie segments on the other side. I'm also really glad Alaric is back as I loved his character. Enzo is another fab character who is so far underused in my opinion.
I like the new direction with the founder member. How much does he know? Where's Enzo gone? What about the new girl? And does Bonnie ever come back?
The Originals is amazing this series although Michael's I hate my children/must kill Klaus is getting a bit ridiculous. The acting has been brilliant & I can't pick a favourite character. I love the new Kaleb/Kol character & hope he has a permanent slot. Marcel is gorgeous. Cami, Rebecca & Hayley are strong, feisty, beautiful women and Klaus & Elijah are amazing characters. Davina is the only annoyance for me I find her character whingey & not as well rounded.
I love The Originals as it has so much history. Vampires are not the most powerful or feared & it also has brilliant moments of humour & warmth.
I can't wait for it to start again. What's going to happen to baby Hope? Ester? What a brilliant twist that was!!! How will Rebecca get out of the house & into her body? Will Hayley really marry Jackson? Will Elijah be ok? What will Klaus & Elijah do to Kol when they find out about Rebecca? When will the evil aunt appear? So many unanswered questions!
Is it 24th Feb yet? :) Glad they've both been renewed. My love of vampires can continue.
