I AM SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
I AM SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
Charlie’s last letter.
“I don’t know if I will have the time to write anymore letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about or know someone who has gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We’ll all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening, I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.”

I find it beautiful that the writers decided to parallel Elena’s reaction to Vicki’s death and Matt’s reaction to Jeremy’s.
In season 1 Elena had just found out about vampirism and then Vicki dies right in front of her. She witnesses one of her childhood sweetheart’s sister die and then on top of that she has to lie to his face about it. She breaks down because she can’t handle the thought let alone the reality of Matt, Jeremy, and herself losing one more person and they just did. Elena waits until she is alone in the car to break down because she won’t let anyone else see her like this. She has to be strong for her friends.
Now here we are 74 episodes later. Matt has lost so many people. He has watched Elena now lose 7 people that were a part of her little family. One of his best friends left town without saying goodbye and now his other best friend is lying lifeless in a house that is burning down. On top of that Elena is now going through what Matt went through a few seasons ago and he loses it. Matt waits until he is alone in the car to break down because he won’t let anyone else see him like this. He has to be strong for his friends.
This isn’t how their lives were supposed to be.
This is truly beautiful. Love the parallel too. Wow… This is so sad :(
Int. Gilbert House - Night
Stefan sits on the couch in the Gilbert house watching The National Geographic channel. Tears stream down his face as he tries to suppress his sobs. Just then Elena enters through the front door and throws her jacket over the banister. Stefan quickly wipes the tears…
This is soooo true for me!
