Per the usual, Arielle has managed to summarize the crazy TVD plot twists using quips alone. Her thoughts on Qetsiyah’s tall tale of a flashback to Ancient Greece: “It wouldn’t the the TVD college years without a toga party...Too bad someone invited the vengeful ex.” Word.
Arielle called Silas and Amara (aka Simara) “the original ship of all ships,” and responded to one fan’s tweet paralleling their story to Adam and Eve’s: “True, right up to the part where Eve’s heart gets ripped out and served in a cup.” R.I.P., Amara.
Lexi was Stefan’s bestie, and we love how Arielle always manages to infuse of affectionate concern when recapping his storyline. She wonders if the amnesia caused by Tessa’s linking spell also erased the memories of his status as vampire: “Not only does he not know who anyone is, but Stefan might not even know he’s a vampire. I mean, how awkward is that conversation gonna be?”
Fortunately, she notes, the rehash is keeping score for him: “Now we have two Stefans, three Elenas, two travelers (give or take Matt), and poor Stefan doesn’t remember any of them. Luckily, he has the rehash to keep him straight.”
