I'm also liking the direction this season has taken, and I find myself kind of wishing that Claire Holt was on the list to join the cast of The Originals. I have a feeling she's going to become human at the end of this season and get written out of both series for good, which is a shame. She makes a good foil for Elena.
I have to wonder if I'm the only one puzzled by everyone's assumptions about the cure. Nobody ever said that it was some easily duplicated recipe that could be distributed worldwide or used repeatedly; for all we know it's a vial containing a single, special drop of blood (although the writers would get kudos for making it a flower) that only one vampire can drink (smell?
) to become human, but everyone's assuming that there will be enough to go around. I predict that the scooby gang will have to decide who gets to use the single available dose, and it probably won't end up going to the person we expect to receive it.
Do you have something against the name "Damon"?
