The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 8 Review: We Have History Together

13 January 2017 7:28 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

As far as mid-season returns go, The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 8 felt a little slow. Not unimportant to the overall story of our final season, but slow. 

Contrasted with the episode Paul Wesley directed, wherein Stefan sold his soul to Cade in exchange for Caroline's daughters, this Ian Somerhalder directed episode was a little more filler and a lot less thriller.

Maybe that's necessary from time to time. In a typical, full-order season, it wouldn't be uncommon to have a few episodes that don't shine quite as brightly as their counterparts.

Sure, there's new information by way of Matt's family history, but even that feels forced so that a connection between the Sirens and Mystic Falls can be made. Now the Maxwells are the original Founding Family (when the Mikaelsons were already the original Original Founding Family...)

At least we know Ric's second intern's name now. »

8 January 2017 8:52 PM, PST | | See recent news »

This article originally appeared on

When Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award during Sunday’s Golden Globes, the actress used her time on stage to call out President-elect Donald Trump, though she avoided mentioning him by name.

Streep spoke of the importance of empathy in today’s world and referenced the moment that Trump mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski during a rally in 2015 for his disability. “This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in thee public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of »
