** But they were also angry with him for abandoning them when he desiccated himself and intended to sleep until Elena woke up so that they could be together again and the three years he was "asleep" having to not just deal with Rayna but other incidents he could have helped them with. Even then Stefan and Bonnie were the most hurt and upset by his decision to do this because for one thing Bonnie would have been dead when Elena woke up and she would have never seen Damon again and they just became best friends and Stefan because of the fact that his brother is abandoning him just when he needs him. Also Damon's decision was also motivated by his desire to not hurt his brother and his friends anymore because of his bad habit of doing terrible things to them and other people because of his vampire nature and they were also angry at him because of the fact he was saying goodbye to them through letters.



* When Elena and Jeremy [[spoiler: kill Kol, Klaus]] angrily threatens to [[spoiler:burn their house down.]] He's stopped from doing so, but I realized later this happens anyway, [[spoiler:only with Elena doing the burning]]
* Every supernatural death goes through the anchor. [[spoiler: Amara was the anchor]] when Elena and Jeremy [[spoiler: kill Kol]]. That created a WHOLE lot of supernatural deaths, all at once.
* [[spoiler: After Elena forces Katherine to take the cure]], her body begins to catch up with all the years that it has been supernaturally alive, causing her body to start to age and decay. [[spoiler: Katherine took the cure unwillingly, but remember who REALLY wanted it?]] Rebekah! If Rebakah had gotten her wish, imagine the fallout. Not only would she probably have died even faster, being more than twice Katherine's age, but the reactions of her brother's could have been... messy. Klaus is unstable enough with his siblings at least trying to keep him in check, and Elijah would have had the additional guilt of being the one to give her the cure.
** [[spoiler: Katherine]] only started aging after [[spoiler: Silas drank her blood to get the cure for himself]]. It's a bit murky on the show, but I think we're supposed to assume that as long as the cure isn't [[spoiler: passed on to someone else]], rapid aging doesn't come along with it. [[spoiler: Silas may have started aging if he'd lived much longer after Amara took the cure from him, but he wasn't technically a vampire and the cure was specifically formulated for his type of immortality, so it's possibly a side-effect only for former vampires who take the cure.]]
** There's a scene at the end of "Graduation" where Silas takes on Elena's form. We later learn that [[spoiler: his lover, Amara, was the Original doppelganger]] making the whole thing very squicky.

* The Travelers cannot gather in one place without disaster striking. They become Passengers in other people's bodies to get around this, so they're not physically together. Yet, their own unconscious bodies are kept in the same cave. Together. Hmmmm.

* In season 7, Damon has been hit hard with a bad case of InformedWrongness, with [[spoiler: everyone blaming him for Rayna going after Stefan, when in fact it was Enzo's fault for manipulating events. However, since Damon turned all of their lives upside down with his return to Mystic Falls in season 1, it makes sense that their first instinct is to blame him when things go wrong.]]

Added DiffLines:

* While Damon doesn't get along with Caroline, he hated her father for, among other reasons, torturing her by taking her daylight ring and burning her with sunlight. This becomes much clearer in "Mommie Dearest", where it is revealed that [[spoiler: his own father burned him with cigars.]]

* In "A Few Good Men" Sheriff Forbes does a background check on Alaric and he has a clean record. However, in "1912" Meredith does another background check and finds several violent instances. How would the local law enforcement miss such things.
* How did Elijah not realize that Elena was wearing his mother's necklace. The only way it could possibly make sense if he didn't know of it.

* In season five we meet Nadia, a vampire who is revealed to be [[spoiler:the daughter that Katherine was forced to give up]]. Nadia has a lot of anger towards Katherine because [[spoiler:she feels that her mother abandoned her when she became a vampire]]. This is all well and good except for the fact that Elena exists, [[which means that Nadia had a child who she abandoned to become a vampire and search for Katherine- doing the exact thing to her child that she is so mad at Katherine for doing to her]].

* Katerina's "turning" may qualify as this, and/or FridgeTearjerker to explain: Katerina/Katherine ran-away from Klaus when Elijah told her about her about their plans to sacrifice her, and Rose walks in on her attempting suicide ( "I'd rather die than go back to Klaus ) and forces her blood into Katherine's system. When Trevor comes home, Rose ambushes him and scolds him for what he's done,and when they turn around to check on Katherine, she's hung herself. At first, one assumes that Katherine purposefully did this to turn herself into a vampire, but then you realize that Katerina ''had absolutely no way of knowing this.'' as she learned about Klaus (and, subsequently, vampires) from Elijah, but its highly doubtful that he told her all about turning and all that. Even though Katherine tells Elena that she had planned to become a vampire all along, all facts point to Katerina really having tried to kill herself, and her saying things like "You would have helped me run. That was never going to be enough" sounds like someone who had, originally, given up, and her saying "Better you die than I" sounds like someone who has been given a second chance at life. [[Tearjerker Which makes her personality change after turning that much more understandable]]

* When Tyler's car crashes due to the effects of the Gilbert Device, his eyes turn golden. Of course this is to forshadow that [[spoiler: he has the werewolf gene, but it makes no sense as one has to kill someone ([[AccidentalMurder accident or not]]) to activate the curse. Then it hit this troper that Caroline was at that point dying of internal bleeding caused by the crash; in other words the curse was just on the edge of being fulfilled.]]

* Seeing as we aren't getting a Christmas hiatus in Season 4 we have a higher chance of getting a holiday episode. Of course it's happiness level might be lower than the one Series/VeronicaMars had.
* Damon being the one to realize the sire bond in Tyler makes a lot more sense in Season 4, when it's revealed [[spoiler: that he had a sired to him in 1940s]]

* Katherine says that she had been taking vervain for 145 years in "Memory Lane". It seems to be just so she's not harmed by it, but in "Katerina" we learn that Originals can compel other vampires, so it also had the added bonus of protecting her.
* In "History Repeating", Damon vows to drink animal blood, but nothing with feathers. Though seems like a simple joke, if you remember in "You're Undead to Me", Damon killed the crow that followed him around for sustenance. He had a good reason for not wanting anything feathered

* Caroline's seeming ease controlling herself and her murderous urges once she becomes a vampire seem [[MarySue MarySueish]] at first, but it becomes brilliant when one remembers that becoming a vampire turned her into as she put it "insecure, neurotic control freak on crack". Basically she has a predisposition toward control including of herself that got turned UpToEleven when she became a vampire.
