8x06: Detoured On Some Random Backwoods Path to Hell - December 2nd

EXTENDED PROMO | STILLS | WEBCLIP I | WEBCLIP II

PAUL WESLEY DIRECTS THE EPISODE WHICH FINDS STEFAN MAKING AN UNEXPECTED SACRIFICE - When her children become the focus of the Siren's latest plan, Caroline takes drastic measures to ensure nothing gets in the way of keeping her family safe. In a race against the clock, Stefan pledges to do everything he can to save the twins, while tensions between Alaric and Caroline boil over, leading them to face some harsh realities about the future of their family. Meanwhile, when Enzo finds himself unable to fight off Sybil's latest move, Stefan dives into his subconscious and along the way, sets off a chain of events that leaves him faced with a life-changing decision. Bonnie and Matt also appear.

Stefan got crapped on this episode. Damn.

Honestly everything this episode was lame for me aside from Bonnie/Enzo and even they laid the cheese on too thick .

Wondering if this new development is setting up for a Defan endgame because I'm thinking they both might die with the way the season is going.

Ian and Paul keep on pitching Defan dying in the end so I'd be surprised if Julie did it. She services fans but not actors I could see one of them dying though.

This episode took me forever to finish because my stream was freezing and it wasn't that great. Props to Paul though. He directed and he was in those fighting scenes and he says he doesn't watch his scenes when he directs.

As opposed to when he doesn't get crapped on Stefan is the resident toilet in this show I will be so glad when this show ends... having to watch Stefan getting shat on all the time is exhausting.

It just seemed extra crappy for him. First Caroline pushes him away because she thinks/knows he would choose Damon over everyone. Then Alaric yells at him to basically give Enzo a lobotomy/murder him to get info while Bonnie is asking and trusting him to help him. Caroline refuses to talk to Stefan. Damon wants to force Stefan into eternal servitude of the devil because he wants to avoid hell. Damon and Sybil force Stefan to murder someone in self defense. Caroline is upset Stefan gave up his life and saved her kids...That was more bs on him than I have ever seen in one episode.

Which is why Stefan should get a happy ending. This **** has been going on for too long.

I'm more leaning on one of the bros sacrificing themselves for the other or they both going out in a blaze of glory. I think it all depends on if Nina will be coming back.

So far, I am not liking this season. Tyler is dead. Damon is written as the villain. They've wrecked Team Badass. I always thought TVD would end on a happy note but at this point I almost feel like I want to wait until the season ends and just binge instead of watching destruction of all these relationships and characters week after week. So far, it's just not feeling like a proper goodbye.

So Damon made a deal with Cade for the Salvabros to become his new "sirens" to bring in the bad people?
You know that Damon will regret this decision when his memories of Elena return and then we will have to see everybody fight for those two to get out of the fangs of the devil again .... this is so unsatisfying.
Like I would get if the Salvatores ended up like this in the finale but not so soon in the season so I know this is not their endgame.
The emotional stakes on this show are so low ... you have Alaric kill Damon in the last scene to be some kind of big event and everything and then you can see him immediately in the promo for the next episode. This is not how you do writing. Like JP think about this

I don't know but out of the two sirens I like Seline better ... Sybil was so annoying this episode

Yeah I'm all for them killing her soon .

I think the key to this whole thing will end up being Bonnie. She doesn't have magic, but I don't see them keeping her like that long so I really think if/when she gets her powers back she will be able to stop either the sirens or both them and Cade.

Sybil is by far one of the most annoying guest stars we've had on this show. She's actually a female version of Damon. She blames Seline for something which happened centuries ago just like Damon blamed Stefan and Katherine despite the fact that she clearly enjoys the bad things she does They're kinda perfect for each other if you think about it

Right now I doubt he'll regret it. His goal is not to go to Hell. It has been since 8x01 before he had his subconscious rewired. Back then though he was trying to protect people he cared about. I don't think Sybil erased Elena. I think she just directed loyalty he felt towards Elena towards her instead so now Damon could care less about what the others think of him.

So I don't post on here very often and I stopped watching TVD around s4 or s5....and I'm so confused.

I just saw a trailer on the CW for this episode I think...Caroline w/ kids? Damon trying to take them? And a while ago I saw another one where Damon was wandering around and hearing Elena's voice.

Does anyone feel like catching me up via pm? I've been meaning to actually get back into it but ever since Nina left it hasn't been the same for me. How's the episodes been? Should I stop being lazy and watch the episodes I've missed?

^The writing only got worse and honestly if I could go back in time I would have quit in S4 which is what I wanted to do I only stuck around for my favourite character/ship. Who was your favourite? Maybe just catch up on that person's storyline.
