7.22 Gods And Monsters
So we've finally reached the end of our first Elena-free year of The Vampire Diaries, and it's been a perplexing year for the show. Not a series that could ever be described as consistent, season seven has been more up and down than most (which beats completely down), and this finale really just sums up that journey.
Gods And Monsters is such an odd episode for season seven to end on, because it's actually a very average episode of the show. I'd go as far as to say that it's the least eventful finale of the entire series, and that's even stranger when you consider that the penultimate episode featured the kind of big, sweeping emotional moments that we've come to expect. Here, it's one big »
Bonnie's rehabilitation and a very heightened emotional situation make for an interesting episode of The Vampire Diaries...

7.21: Requiem For A Dream
Nothing impresses me more than when a television show can bring a character back from the depths of audience hatred - when the writers finally wake up to an actor's talent or a character's potential and craft them some good material. The opposite of this has happened a lot of The Vampire Diaries (Matt, we'll get to you later), but it's rare for a show to really pull it off as well as these guys have with Bonnie.
Damon's speech at the end of Requiem For A Dream, in which he recounts all of the things Bonnie has had to overcome since season 1, and how much he admires her for it, was thus a high point of the whole series for me. »
In this episode, Damon and Enzo lead the charge to save Bonnie before her condition worsens, while Stefan and Matt reluctantly team up for her sake -- which leads to Stefan uncovering the reason Matt's angry with him. Meanwhile, Caroline's determined to help her best friend and joins Alaric on a mission, which makes her realize how much she's missed her former life. Finally, when their plan takes an unexpected turn, Damon makes a fateful decision that will forever change his relationship with Bonnie.
