I am sad for it's end, especially because I really found the finale episodes of season 3 to be totally rushed. They claimed it was a natural end, but you can obviously contrast those episodes with the rest. Wasn't too happy with it, would have definitely liked to see more going on with Vanessa.

I still identify with her character in many ways. I also enjoyed Dorian - at first I wasn't sure about his portrayal but the more I saw of it, truly fit with his origin. And well, I adored Dracula for a while.. then I found him a bit annoying in the finale.

Lolols I felt the same about Dracula.

I honestly didn't like too many characters except Vanessa and Justine. Im the complete opposite of the two but I was def drawn to their intensity.

Spoiler!

Finally finished the series, which was a total surprise to me that it was actually the end and not the season finale like I thought it was. It felt like there was a whole new season to be explored with the addition of three new characters. It feels like they gave us a strong, independent woman at the beginning of the series and then... what happened after that is a mystery. lol She triumphed in season two, although she did feel a bit too scared for my liking, and then season three rolls around and 1h It's frustrating and definitely didn't feel like a natural end. It was stated that season 2 was when the writer realized that season three would be the last season, which is right around when I started noticing some inconsistencies, ironically.

I still love the atmosphere of the show. It is amazing overall. I'm just a little disappointed.


And then there was a thing, but not any thing, it was a thingy thing.

Hey guys is it weird if the main character has a similar name as mine and the main vampire who obsessed over her trying to turn her to the dark side has my ex's name? My jaw dropped. Because he was trying to get me to go over to the dark side forever. 2yn
