I want to say that the point of the flashbacks, was to forshadow a future "delena". Damon was the one who met her first, and since she is now a vampire, chances are she will lose the compulsion to forget that they met etc etc so on and so forth.
I was unhappy with how they turned Tyler into Klaus. I love Joseph Morgan, but to be realistic... Klaus was becoming a cockroach. He just won't go away. Even the actor goes away and he is STILL THERE.
I also wonder about Matt's fate, did he make it? What if Stefan didn't make it in time? WHY did Stefan listen to Elena??
I'm not too sure how I feel now that Elena is a vampire, this sort of thing really only seems to ever work out in books but on screen the shows like this *or* where the popular couple get together, those are usually series enders right there. (Hopefully won't be the same way for Castle, or this show!)
Anyway, I reallllly liked this finale. It had it's good, and it's bad...as does all finales.
What will happen with the Originals now? I'm realllllly crossing my fingers for maybe Elijah to become a more main character because Rebeckah was beginning to get on my nerves as well.
