The Vampire Diaries

Season 5 generally

Plot hole: Bonnie is the anchor for the other side and feels when supernatural beings die. How come she didn't know Katherine wasn't dead? Did she never think it was suspicious that she never felt Katherine's body after she died?

Suggested correction: Katherine died but didn't go to the other side. So she didn't need to go through Bonnie. She went to hell to Arcadius. Bonnie is not the anchor to hell, we don't know how going to hell works.

After everyone finally realises that Elena had been possessed by her Doppelgänger Predecessor, It is actually shown that Katherine were more or less dragged away from Bonnie before she could crossover to the Otherside. So we do have some idea as to how one ends up in Hell.

Suggested correction: Katherine was a human technically when she died.

Technically, she was supernatural because she was a doppelganger, so she should've gone through Bonnie.

And even she was a traveller.

The Return - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Elena's house address is different. In season 1 episode 1 Elena's house number was 935. In this episode Elena tells the ambulance that her address is 2104 Floyd Street. (00:39:30)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The sign by Mystic Falls cemetery says it was established in 1792, but later episodes state the town was built in the 1860s.

Founder's Day - S1-E22

Other mistake: When Elena is taken, Bonnie asks Jeremy for help. She says she needs his blood to cast a location spell to find Elena. But it doesn't make sense. Earlier it was revealed that Elena is adopted, so she and Jeremy don't share the same bloodline and cast could not work well.

Suggested correction: Elena was adopted by her uncle. Grayson Gilbert (her adoptive father) is John Gilbert's (her biological father) brother. Jeremy (Grayson's son) is actually her cousin, and related by blood.


Masquerade - S2-E7

Plot hole: Why did Stefan and Damon suddenly decide to abandon their plans to kill Katherine when the spell linking her to Elena were broken? When only moments earlier, Damon said "The second the spell is lifted, I'm gonna drive a stake right through your heart." So that begs the question why did he never follow through? Why instead place her in the spelled tomb that you know can be dispelled? It makes absolutely no sense when you think about it.

1912 - S3-E16

Factual error: During the flash back of 1912, one of the characters pulls an American note out for Damon, and it had the date 2016 or 2010 on. (00:13:00)

Suggested correction: That's not the date. The blue number is basically the serial number, not the date. The series date would be in too fine of print to see in the shot of the bill.


Show generally

Continuity mistake: Giuseppe Salvatore wasn't buried at the family crypt because it hadn't been built yet. But Lily Salvatore was buried at the crypt despite dying before Giuseppe.

Damon Salvatore: I DO believe in killing the messenger. Why? Because it sends a message.

Show generally

Question: When Elena and Damon were turned into rippers they were confined because they fed on vampires. Why was Lily not a threat, yet she was a ripper and never fed on vampires.

Alana paulatte

Answer: Because Lily's humanity was not turned off as Elena and Stefan's were...therefore she had some control over her actions and had a conscience whereas the other two did not at the time.
