    The finale was great. I was shocked that Lestat called Antoinette his love and turned her into a vampire !! The crazy part is he wanted her to replace Claudia smh Even if she joined the family, Louis would be more depressed and eventually kill himself. The present Louis has major PTSD and still love with his abuser. It also looks like his memories may have been altered. Was anyone else creeped out how Armand grabbed Louis hand and floating above him? Another red flag is the fact the books are so high up and Louis likes to read but can’t fly. Louis also looked like he forced smile after calling Armand which is sad.

      I’m actually just flat out too excited about the Armand reveal to think much beyond “yes, that’s what I wanted.” With that being said, I believe there have already been interviews with cast where they’ve said it’s not a brainwashing situation here — which is good. Louis has definitely already been through enough, especially with how the series has heightened the toxicity with Lestat in ways that…are what they are.

      A potentially different take on where the books are: Armand’s personal items and/or things Louis wants to forget may be where only Armand can get them, while the books that Louis actually wants to read could be within his own reach. Unless the series goes in a wildly new direction going forward, those theatre programs…will not be things Louis is interested in being reminded of, as a general rule. To say the least.

      I was definitely shocked with the Antoinette reveal, and it was very foolish on Lestat’s part to ever think she would’ve replaced Claudia in Louis’ heart. It doesn’t even make sense with the shows’ take on the characters and relationship, given how Lestat specifically dragged Claudia — who he hated and wanted to be rid of — back in 1×06 *specifically* because of how Louis felt about her. Very weird inconsistency there.
