Valerie Tulle: [voice-over] Dear Diary, I am in Hell. It's hard to imaging a place far worse then where I come from, but by some spectacular miracle I found it. In the weeks since I arrived here in Mystic Falls three things are clear: the food is literally made of poison, the air smells like the plague, and everyone wants to know what everyone else is doing. I don't fit in here, nor do I want to. This is not the world I imagined.

Awful start to a previous good show.
9 October 2015 | by anyarugtvedSee all my reviews

I just watched the first episode of season 7 and i was horrified.

First of all Elena is severely lacking, i know everyone has a difference of opinion on this, but i loved her in the show. At least until she became a vampire, and then a little less but she is vital to the show, in my opinion.

Secondly there is the Stefan/Caroline friends/couple dilemma, that gets taken up once again. I mean come on. Been there, thought about it, move on already. Much rather see Tyler back with Caroline or even Klaus. But not Stefan.

Third there is the weird new "familiy" heretics. I thought it was crazy and weird when Kai was a vampire/witch and could use magic, but then again he was a witch once. But new crazy old vamps who can use magic?? Thats just not right..

Then there is the weird thing with Alaric, wanting to bring Jo back? Seriously? Oh well he is back from the dead too, so i guess it wouldn't be too strange.

Then there is the whole Enzo thing? I mean, fair that he has become a regular or some, but then at least give him a bit more exciting story then siding with a psychotic vampire and her lunatic family.

I got a bit excited of the last two minutes because Stefan seemed to be chased by a new vampire hunter, which is awesome news to the show.

All in all i think it is a bad start to the "new" vampire diaries.
