One of the BETTER Episodes of TVD S8
6 February 2017 | by emir-kovacevicSee all my reviews

I really thought that Season Eight of The Vampire Diaries isn't doing so well even though I expected it to be one of the best seasons of the show. It had an interesting start with a few quite good story lines, but they still weren't like the great story lines from Season 2 or 3. I decided to continue watching it since it's definitely my favorite TV series. However, the more I kept watching this season I realized that the story was really going nowhere and I thought that one episode had to break that nonsense already. I think that this is that episode. In my opinion, I'd say that this is the best episode of the season so far. This episode will leave you with that feeling of actually being unable to wait for the next episode just to see what will happen. For all those of you who are thinking that TVD has lost it's story, I'd recommend you to give this episode a go!
