jesus lord, i’ve been wondering since 4x08, “why the fuck did bonnie bring the tea for them to try? they aren’t witches. shit, they’re vampires. WHY DID SHE BOTHER TO BRING THE TEA? WHY THIS TEA, THIS TEA THAT MAKES ONE’S MIND SUSCEPTIBLE TO HYPNOTISM?” AND NOW, I SEE. I FUCKING SEE. why would she have brought them the tea, when they’re her kind’s natural enemy, and it’s supposed to help tap into expression and allow an individual to be hypnotized unless the point was to have them hypnotized all along? LORD.
