    No, that’s not stupid at all that Damon is suppose to dangerous. I mean he accepts his vamp side and knows how to use it to his advantage and do the messy deeds no one else can handle. What you’d mentioned about Damon wanting to saty a vamp is true for the books but remember in season 2 when Damon killed that girl in the middle of the road he confessed to her that he missed being human more than anything. If he had a chance to be human especially if it meant he could live a normal life with Elena I think he’d take it. I’m sure both brothers would. That being said though I’m not sure he’d adapt well to it after 162 years of having vamp powers. The hardest I think would be his inability to protect Elena. I think ultimately he’d turn back. So if any of them turned human it might be interesting for a brief time to see how they would struggle with it and then make the choice to turn back. I don’t see it lasting for a whole season so we’d have our vamps back in no time.

    Your right, I totally forgot about that!!! (How could I?!)

    And that would be quite a storyline, I like it! A lot! :D

    But what do you think is  most likely going to happen?  And do you think Alaric will be killed or is he the big bad next season?

    And I know I said it about a hundred times in a hundred different ways but the suspense is killing me!!!

  • ihatepeople

    The suspense is killing all of us! I haven’t been able to concentrate and I’ve been worried about it for days. :(

    I don’t think Ric will be killed. They said they’re going to leave his fate ambiguous. We saw the white oak stake can’t kill him last ep. The desication thing didn’t go over well last time because he was too strong to be over come long enough for it to work. What about daggering? I’d mentioned earlier that it could be a myth that if a vamp daggers an original the vamp dies. The originals could’ve created this lie as a means of protection. What if Damon daggers Ric but instead of dying he turns human? I say Damon because it would be fitting that he take down his friend. Just a wild thought.

    I’m wondering if Bonnie will be the big bad next season. She seemed to enjoy tapping into the dark magic when she stopped Jer’s heart. It says she makes a deal with heartbreaking consequences.

  • NLM

    Yeah i’ve been having the same problems! :(

    And yes a dagger could do the deed.. And I wouldn’t be suprised if the orginals lied about the whole ”vampire can’t dagger us” thing either. Only Damon would take such a risk, so it would be a very fitting end for Alaric!

    About Bonnie; I think your right! She looked way the happy while using that dark magic (and those creepy veins). By the way didn’t Bonnie’s mom lose her powers by using that spell?
    I think Bonnie will take a trip to crazyland next season!

    But that been said, I’m really looking forward to see what is going to happen on thursday, we’re all going crazy about the hundreds of possibilities.. But I think this final episode of season 3 is going to end with a HUGE cliffhanger (like every season), and to be honest i’m really not looking forward to that..  Because season 4 is far far away so after thursday we will have weeks probaly months of going crazy by te suspense! :p Sitting on the edge of our seats waiting and some more waiting.. For season 4!

  • ihatepeople

    I know what you mean about not looking forward to the huge cliffhanger followed by the long summer wait. It’ll be ahahahahahahaha worthy I’m sure. I’m trying to prepare myself for heartbreaking as well but I think I’m failing miserably.

    You know you bring up a good point about Abby losing her powers when she did the spell on Mikael but Bonnie kept her powers and seemed to have thrived on it. Is it because Abby wasn’t as strong a witch as Bonnie or maybe Bonnie has tapped into other magical realms that her mom didn’t because of all the situations she has been forced into. This has gradually left her open to the powers of the dark side. Ok now that sounded like a Star Wars reference. LOL. I’d like to see dark magic Bonnie next season like we got to see dark Willow on Buffy.

    You’re right that Damon would be willing to risk dying by daggering Ric in order to take him down. It would be interesting to see the surprise and alternate consequences if the originals did lie about the dying thing. It would certainly change things for the future with them wouldn’t it?

  • NLM

    Can you even  prepare  for heartbreak? Because I never learned that skill! :P
    I already stocked up in tissues , chocolate and booze! (My cure for heartbreak and almost everything else. LOL.)

     
    Yeah your right about Bonnie, she’s probably a lot stronger then Abbie was and she did a lot of crazy spells and shit for everyone in Mystic Falls. But I just thought it was strange that Abbie only said something about the dark magic and not about her losing her powers? Maybe Abby got ‘’addicted’’  to dark magic and lost therefore her powers? Just a thought.
    Hahaha I love Star Wars, so I will quite enjoy seeing Bonnie join the dark side! It would be very interesting to see.  I’m down for Darth Bonnie!

     
    Yes the originals future will definitely change  if they lied about the dying thing.. Then they should be really careful because I think there are a lot of vampires out there who will have a bone to pick! So I totally agree, it would be quite entertaining to see!

  • ihatepeople

    OMG! Darth Bonnie, that’s hysterical! Good theory about her mom getting addicted. Maybe the Bennette witches punished her for it and took away her powers and only left her with herbal powers. Interesting thought.

    Yeah I wouldn’t put it past them to lie in order to protect their family. Look how the sun and moon curse was fake. If the daggering thing is a lie they would be really vulnerable. Getting one of those daggers is far easier than getting the remaining white oak stake from Ric.

    No, there really isn’t a full proof way to prepare yourself for the heartbreak. I keep trying to think of al the worse case scenarios so it won’t seem so shocking but alas I’ll still be upset I’m sure. I’m down with your chocolate solution for sure. Maybe I should take up drinking too. :)

  • NLM

    Oh God now I can put bad influence on my skills list too!
    I really shouldn’t promote drinking..  Therefore all I’m going to say is that it helps me..  a lot!  
    But chocolate always help too.. (especially when you drink hot chocolate spiked with rum or whiskey) LOL. I’m just
    joking, you should really just stay with the chocolate!  
     

    Yeah getting a dagger is a lot easier and safer too! Besides I think they better get rid of that white oak stake, it doesn’t work on Ric and it kills the originals therefore they will die too ( I know Klaus said he is the creator of their bloodline but like you said it wouldn’t be the first time he lied!)  But still daggering is also a really big risk if it doesn’t work!  I think they will first try if Bonnie maybe can reverse the spell Esther used  to make Ric super original! Or maybe turning Elena.. But I have to say I would like it if Ric gets daggered and Damon turns human , you convinced me, that would be very interesting and surprising to see..  (and maybe Damon will be finally be picked by Elena)

     
    Haha I found that Darth Bonnie very entertaining too, I already saw a picture in my head with Bonnie in a Darth Vader costume and  trying to get people join the dark side! (LOL may the force be with her)
    But yeah I found that theory interesting too! And your theory about the Bennett witches taking her powers as punishment very believing! But what I do find strange is that bonnie said the witches made her go to Ric to give him blood, why didn’t they intervene earlier? If the witches wanted the vampires dead so badly why did they let Bonnie uses her powers to help them like what a million times?
     

    But luckily we don’t have to wait much longer and then hopefully all our questions will be answered!
    Probably not though…

    wow you can’t read that one bit! I will post this comment again on the top ;)
    I’m sorry!

  • ihatepeople

    Check reply above since this is getting so squished. LOL

  • ihatepeople

    No worries I’m well old enough to drink. My New Year’s resolution has been to take up drinking for the last 2 years to survive my job but like most resolutions I’ve failed. Haha. I’m going to just drowned my sorrows in chocolate and go into a sugar coma to get me thru the summer wait for season 4. LOL.

    I wonder if Bonnie can reverse Esther’s spell on Ric since it was her blood that turned him. I mean I completely agree with you that I don’t get why the witches would have Bonnie give her blood to Ric and not have intervened earlier in getting rid of vampires. Bonnie in a Darth Vader costume. LMAO! “Abby you are my mother” instead of “Luke I am your father”. :0~)

  • NLM

    LMAO!!  I laughed so hard I almost peed my  pants..  
    You have no idea how much fun I had over that phrase ‘’Luke I’m your father’’ and you making it ‘’Abby you are my mother’’ hahahahahah hysterical, just genius!

    And good point about her blood turning Ric, but maybe it doesn’t matter? Just helps it because now  they are connected? I don’t know.. Luckily we don’t have to wait much longer.. Only a few hours!!!

    I can’t keep still, I’m so nervous! I try to distract myself but it’s not working one bit..
    (I already opened a bottle of wine but maybe I should open something stronger..)

    How you’re doing?

     
    And if you don’t mind me asking; what do you do? If your resolution for New Year’s has been drinking for the last two years to survive your job? LOL.

    By the way, don’t feel bad  I failed a lot of resolutions too, most of them the next day already or a few weeks after! 
    And Nice plan, drowning your sorrows in chocolate and go into a sugar coma! I’m in!!!

  • ihatepeople

    I’m glad you got the infamous Luke reference. LOL.

    I couldn’t focus at work ALL damn day! I must have been on this site 15 times today just nervously looking for something. Off to my workout. At least that will distract me until “show time”. Ian tweeted for people to watch like there would be any way we’d miss it. OMG Hell no!

    I’m an administrator at a hospital where I oversee 250 plus resident doctors in training. This time of year is the busiest because we have people graduating and new ones coming in on top of the daily duties. Keeping everyone on track is driving me to drink plus all the political garbage.

    I might need to pick more chocolate before I go home. :)

  • NLM

    Yeah I definitely got it, LOL. I’m also huge Star Wars fan, seen the movies like a hundred time or so, yeah I know  I’m kinda a dork… :p
     

    Me too, surfing the web like a class A stalker!  And you would need to sedate me to keep me from watching TVD  tonight!
     
    By the way did you read this?:
    “Because of the circumstances, one of the Salvatores does leave town,” Nina says. Don’t worry – the guy who hits the road isn’t out of the running. “When Elena does make the decision, she’s alone. She’s not with either brother. She’s taken away from that element of temptation, and away from the pressure, and she’s not forced to make an impulsive decision because they’re both standing in front of her.”
     

    I had a little bit of hope there that it might be Damon but I got crushed again when I read other interviews! IT’S NOT FAIR!  Sorry I’m whining but I’m just said and one ball of nerves it’s getting worse by the second…  L  What do you think?
     

    Wow, I totally understand that you drink, I probably would drink all day long, seven days a week! LOL. No worries just joking (I think).
     

    Yeah my candy drawer is full of chocolate, and with full I mean it doesn’t close properly.. :p
