Good, but should have been longer
11 March 2017 | by XxxDaniel94See all my reviews

Iv'e watched this show since its beginning, its had its ups and downs, but has remained a very good show, with fantastic characters. Season 7 and 8 have been the least best seasons out of the series, but this episode was one of the better episodes.

First of all, it was great seeing all the characters make at least one small cameo, and the little hint at the end about the Originals (I look forwards seeing that return). However, I do think this episode felt rushed. With scenes been quickly edited together, and characters teleporting from one scene to another.

After 8 years, I think they should have wrapped this up a little better than handled. While this was a great episode, it had a lot of emotion behind it. But I couldn't help but feel it needed to be at least another 30 minuets longer, to give us more time with the characters we have grown to love over the past 8 years.

The Vampire Diaries has been terrific, and I can't say anything else bad about this episode, because ... its not bad. I hope that some of the characters make it over to the Originals. This episode had great acting, and very good writing, and despite being rushed, was a fitting conclusion to a great TV series.

This show will be missed.
