The Vampire Diaries 5.11 Review: “500 Years of Solitude”

This 100th episode of The Vampire Diaries set out to be an epic goodbye to Katherine Pierce, everyone’s favorite ex-vampire turned human.  As viewers we were put through a wringer of complex emotions, most of which evoked more than a few tears.  We were excited to see old faces back for a visit, and almost sympathetic to see Katherine on her death bed.

Excellent music choices always make this show so much better, and it was fitting to have The Fray’s song “Love Don’t Die” at the beginning as we see both Damon and Elena moping around from their breakup.  I don’t even want to call it a breakup, because you’d have to be heartless to not see that they still love each other.  Heck, even Stefan encouraged both of them to not give up on each other.  Damon was surprised that his brother would actually be pushing him to win Elena back, but even Stefan realizes the great love between Damon and Elena.  This might not have made Stelena shippers happy, but those fans will have to admit that even their favored Salvatore for Elena is “shipping” her with Damon instead of himself.
