The Vampire Diaries is a show where witches can bring people back from the dead, vampires kiss humans instead of ripping their throats out, and werewolves have silky smooth chests when they haven’t transformed. And we accept all of this without blinking an eye. Yet it’s the little things that make us scoff and say, “That would never happen.” Check out the biggest logic fails from Season 4, Episode 23 “Graduation.”
Since when do mayors hand out diplomas?
Sure, it was a nice moment when Mayor Rudy gave Bonnie (Kat Graham) her diploma and she said goodbye to him forever, but... shouldn’t there have been a representative of the school there? We buy that he might have made a speech, but it would’ve been nice to have a glimpse of the elusive Mystic Falls High principle. We imagine he or she is very happy to see this particular class graduate.
If an explosion goes off and no one hears it, did it really happen?
None of his friends seemed overly concerned when Matt (Zach Roerig) told them he’d had a near-death experience at the hands of one of the Five. Get some new friends, Matt! He and Rebekah (Claire Holt) had just set off a giant explosion, thanks to Alexander and Connor. (Not to mention the one Alaric moved out of the Grill earlier.) No one cared. Despite the small area Mystic Fall encompases, graduation continued and no one batted an eye. Maybe the Sheriff was taking care of it, and that's why she wasn't there to see her daughter graduate?
Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is jealous of Elena (Nina Dobrev)?
We get that both Salvatores are in love with Elena, but Katherine’s woe-is-me speech about her doppelganger stealing her life didn’t really ring true for us. Aside from the fact that she’s been out-running Klaus (Joseph Morgan) all these years — and really, if anyone stole her life, it’s him — she’s had it pretty good. She’s been compelling herself an endless supply of fabulous shoes for years!
