    The 'shock' death of Stefan wasn't nearly as shocking as it could have been, in fact, it barely made a bleep on my shock radar! The problem being that we've been spoon fed the idea that they will find a way to save the other side and bring back the dead, long before Stefan died, so we know he's going to be saved.

    It was a bit of a shock to see them kill Stefan. I wasn't expecting it at all. We all know that they will find a way to stop the travellers in the end, as otherwise there wouldn't be a new season of the VD. Why is Enzo suddenly so keen on being brought We all saw that he essentially committed suicide to mess with Stefan and Damon.

    If everybody whose live was saved by magic begins to die of the thing that killed them in the first place why aren't Jeremy and Matt not affected as they got saved by the magic ring a few times ( and Jeremy also by a spell from Bonnie)?

    Nice to see Elena and Damon back together. They really have a lot more chemistry than Elena and Stefan.

    Does anybody else think that Stefan and Caroline would be a good match? They have the same moral outlook and we heard in this episode how highly Stefan thinks of her. And it would perhaps give Caroline some sort of storyline next season.

    A big bunch of people chanting, bleeding and dying in the townsquare and the rest of the town doesn't come running, no police and no ambulances?

    I still ask myself why Elena et al are even in college. They can't have time to go to lectures and write essays, but we saw Elena preparing for a test a short while ago. Doesn't the college realize that they aren't there half of the time and put them on academic probation?

    Can Stefan really be dead again? What is this Game of Thrones? Well, we know the Travelers will be stopped, otherwise there won't be any witches, vampires, werewolves, dopplegangers and other supernatural creatures around Mystic Falls. Mystic Falls may disappear too, and then there is no Vampire Diaries. Somebody call the Winchesters.

    Wow this was a fantastic penultimate episode!



    Seeing all of our supernatural Mystic Falls gang in such peril was utterly heartbreaking and completely compelling all at once!



    Markos really is a radically terrifying 'big bad' and the Travelers really are extremely creepy, I really wanna see our gang of heroes take him down!



    Damon and Markos's interplay was really fun and horrifying all at once!



    Stefan and Elena's talk about the state of what they are as Vampires and her relationship with Damon was really nice.



    The emotional development between Damon and Elena was wonderfully welcome.



    I also really enjoyed Caorline and Damon's interplay in this episode.



    The after effects of 'Other Side's' disintegration was really scary and ominous!



    What happened to Stefan really came out of left field for me I sincerely hope that Caroline and the gang can save not only him but the whole of Mystic Falls!



    Next Thursday cannot come fast enough for me I just gotta see how this 5th Season ends!moreless
