What Role Will Meredith Play on The Vampire Diaries Season 4?

by at . Comments

This is difficult to get out, but we can no longer be in denial: Alaric Saltzman is dead. The beloved history teacher won't play a role on The Vampire Diaries Season 4.

But what about his doctor of a love interest? Meredith Fell, after all, is the one responsible for injecting the blood into Elena that will lead to her upcoming transformation.

Torrey DeVitto as Melissa

“Meredith in the beginning is just trying to keep her head above water, realizing that she’s found herself dropped into this supernatural world she never really meant to get involved with,” previews producer Julie Plec to TV Line.

“She has a choice to make: Does she want to dive in head first and embrace it? Or does she want to pull back and say, ‘Hey you know what? Why don’t you guys leave me out of it.’ We’ll be seeing a little bit of her in the beginning of the season.”

Other spoilers have revealed that Meredith may end up sharing a few drinks with Damon, a new/old Damon, that is.

Like when Damon asked Liz to dig into Alaric's past in season 1 and she only found parking tickets? And she's a cop. But when Meredith pokes into it, she finds violence, restraining orders and some time in jail. Girl's got skills.
or how eastern european vampires suddenly become vikings who...somehow ended up settling in....in california....on the FRIGGIN OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE American continents than Europe is. or how Elena's outright stated "i was out at the party without permission, got drunk made a huge scene and my parents had to get me back thus they died and i feel guilt" suddenly turned into a planned innocent school party. Or how Katherine - the every-knowledgeable Klaus evader somehow decided to SETTLE IN in mystic falls all those years ago. Plot Coherence - this show has none.

The show already DIRECTLY contradicts itself in some MAJOR shit Like when Damon asked Liz to dig into Alaric's past in season 1 and she only found parking tickets? And she's a cop. But when Meredith pokes into it, she finds violence, restraining orders and some time in jail. Girl's got skills.

she shot Alaric, and he came back. Which means she's supernatural, so she's already in it.
watch it be retconed when writers write themselves into a corner again. The show already DIRECTLY contradicts itself in some MAJOR shit like Elena's own backstory(are we supposed to believe that Elena elena has a memory span of a hamster,so she does not even remember her own backstory correctly?) , Plec will most likely be banking on everyone having forgotten the shooting and will present some outrageously stupid explanation for that event that contradicts itself. Even Bonnie's cousin who appeared in total of one episode and was there ENTIRELY for the sake of being a plot device, was more interesting than Melissa.

Meredith was never meant to be a major character, maybe they will explore her character later on, maybe they won't. Just because a character isn't getting explored, that doesn't mean he/she shouldn't be interesting. Right now, Meredith is anything but. She's a doctor, she had a crush on Alaric and she's a crappy doctor. That doesn't make her interesting. We know nothing about her as a person. As for the 'getting sucked into the supernatural' thing - she shot Alaric, and he came back. Which means she's supernatural, so she's already in it. Besides, she attacked vampires in her office and took their blood. Can't exactly start complaining about how she never wanted a part in any of this then.

Really don't want to diss Paul Wesley's wife, but.....good acting, very bad character developing. loved her in the books as Elena's bff and half vampire.

Yes borednow find a show you won't bash in every comment. If there was any show that was ruined it was THE SECRET CIRCLE! The Vampire Diaries books are boring and infantile. I am a book lover. I read about 2 books a week. And those books are not as good as the secret circle or nightworld books.
The TV series is WAY better. No show is perfect, not one single show!!! But this show has been amazing. Its given the audience sex, intrigue, romance, a healthy dose of shockers. Maybe lately things have been yawn. But I'm not about to bitch about it in EVERY single post and act like I could make this show a 100 times better cuz I can't and NIETHER can you.
Meredith was never meant to be a major character, maybe they will explore her character later on, maybe they won't. Who knows? Just STFU and watch or don't watch but just STFU cuz your negative comments on TVFanatic are not gonna help make the show how you want it be.

They need to trim the fat. I wasn't interested in Meredith as a character when she came in and I probably won't be come the Fall. There are already enough characters to show and balance out and as much as I like TVD, they don't always do a great job of developing most of its characters. It only becomes kore problematic when they keep bringing more characters into the fold for extended periods of time.

Sometimes I'm not really interested in Meredith Fell but as long as she's a helpful doctor,then I don't think of her as a distraction in the show. I can't wait for season 4. =]

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
