Elisheba Anastazja. I am primarily a Vampire Diaries blog. Be warned, I am multi-fandom and text post prone. Please enjoy your stay.
I could be completely okay with Kol’s death. I really could, because his character would have been ruined by staying. His death was necessary (albeit mostly to save the main characters). The reasons I’ll never actually be okay with Kol’s death are:
1. His family’s reaction was absolutely nothing. Rebekah let like three tears out and then joined the gang that killed him. Elijah actively sympathized with his killer over the death of her brother, the boy who actually plunged a stake into Kol’s heart. Klaus is the only one who really reacted, but apparently three days in a living room is enough for Klaus to let things go because everyone knows that guy never holds a grudge….
2. Kol’s death wasn’t meant to be good story-telling or progress the story. Julie Plec doesn’t make choices like that. She makes her writing choices based off what she thinks will be fun for her to right, right at that moment. Hence, Kol’s death, Bonnie’s death, Silas being awoken/killed/having Stefan as a doppelganger, and the magic loophole Klayley baby.
3. The Originals doesn’t consist of the Originals. Nope, not even the three that are on the show. Finn and Kol are dead. Esther and Mikael are dead and their storyline resolved. Rebekah is a flimsy, whimpering shadow of who she once was. Elijah is…ugh…my skin crawls at what he has become. Klaus isn’t interesting to watch, especially to a new viewer. He’s a petulant, spoiled, tantrum-throwing, abusive, needy, greedy, megalomaniac who can be outsmarted by a rock.
Maybe, if all those points weren’t factors surrounding the death of Kol I would be resigned to his death and accept it, but they are and so I will hold onto it as a point of irritation because Julie Plec should be held accountable for EVERY single moment of bad writing she has ever inflicted on the viewers she mocks.
How teachers assume groups of three work: everyone does 1/3 of the work
How they actually work: One cunt does absoloutley nothing, another person doesn't really understand but tries their best, and the third person ends up doing 70% of the work so that they don't fail.
