Not exactly disappointed, no..Since, truth be told, for the first time I wasn’t expecting anything of it, which turned out to be a great strategy, lol. Everything aside though (boring subplots, inconsistency, etc), yes, after all these years I feel like the fans and the show itself deserved more. Most certainly a better and more fulfilling ending instead of this anti-climatic and flaccid one. And that’s a fact. On the other hand, I am really happy for Eric and Pam, I have to admit, even though that last scene (including Eric’s recycled one) at Fangtasia made no sense whatsoever, jmo.
Also, not having Lafayette in the series finale is an insult. :/
But it’s over. *sighhhh* I don’t know about you but I’m done with stressing over it all. I’m choosing to focus on positive stuff and remember and cherish all the amazing moments that this show gave us..and for which I’ll always be grateful. At the end it’s all that really matters.
Now are you with me or not?
Oh I am so fucking with you.
I thought you might be.
Alex has said he cried like a baby when it was over. True?
He was. [She starts to cry.] I had told him, “I’m not gonna be able to deal with it.” I started crying weeks before. I said, “Look, when we have our last day, we have to just act like we’re gonna see each other tomorrow. Let’s just go, ‘See you tomorrow!’ and walk away because I’ll be a mess, and I can’t deal with it.” He knows I’m an emotional person. I said, “Literally, you’re gonna have to help me out and pretend.” In that Stock Exchange scene, we had to look at each other and be laughing and happy. I kept thinking, “Don’t cry. Don’t cry. Don’t cry.” They said, “That’s it!” and he hugged me. And then I felt that he was crying. And I was like, “Oh no! Oh no! I’m in trouble! I’m in trouble!” So then I just, of course, was a mess. And I finally just said, “See you tomorrow! See you tomorrow!” and ran to my car…I couldn’t believe that he cried. He’s a stoic Swede normally.
Part of me wondered whether they’re pretending to be a couple in public now, for the sake of New Blood sales, when we saw that kiss on the hand.
That was just a sweet little thing that happened.
So Swedish, so undead, so perfect.
