I was going to try to stick it out but last night's episode just drove home for me how really crappy the show is now and was last year.
The only thing in terms of character development this show delivers anymore is romantic angst--which I could care less about. And I couldn't be any more tired of the hallucination of characters berating and psychoanalyzing a character. And Jeremy turning out to be a hunter--can anyone say contrivance. April is as useless a character as ever. Klaus too.
The first two years were the show's best after that it came off the rails--I think it had to do with Julie Plec taking over and Kevin Williamson having less of an influence.
