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

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.

Honestly .... I could care less about her....


hi am a fan 4rm kenya n we wld mmmh prsme da damon wl b wd elena n hpe dat it'l b lyk dat


Not really interested in Meredith either, and I have to agree with Annie and Bored now. Elijah was the last newly introduced character that I actually cared about, but instead, the writers chose to focus on Klaus and Rebeccah. I'm still hoping that we'll get better stories for Stefan, Bonnie, Tyler and Jeremy the next season, but if they keep introducing new characters, that's not going to happen.

And yeah what show REALLY lacks is:
1) lasting consequences of ANY kind. As it is now, nothing really matters. you could cut out the entire S2 and S3 and have Elena turn in the end of S1 and NOTHING would change in the show. Nothing that ever happens has any lasting consequences.
2)lack of any sort of moral compass or moral dilemmas - the show logic in no way resembles earth logic. Everything is justificable for those "characters" as long as its for elena and none of reactions and decisions really make sense nor match up to the events at hand.

To be honest, the last "new" character I actually cared about that was introduced on TVD was Elijah back in season 2.
THIS SO MUCH. It was the only character introduced in S2 that I liked. everyone else in s2 and s3 were...disposable and bland plot devices. hell the show even was awfully fast to throw S1 recurring characters under the bus to hype up S2 too...


@Annie. I agree with you 100%. This show seems to be all about "over compensating" for Elena and Damon and they totally forget about the other very real characters that surround them. Even Stefan, as you rightly pointed out, has no plotline of his own. Yet he's one of the big 3. His rippah phase was so badly developed that I think they just abandoned it half way through the season. They absolutely refuse to develop the ones we care about...like Bonnie, Jeremy, Tyler etc. EVERYTHING IS ABOUT THE SACRIFICIAL BRUNETTE!!!! While they leave the others to rot. I mean who the HELL cares about Meredith??? REALLY


@Bored Now This WE so far includes Me, MT and Sa'ad702 and there plenty more people who don't want you here. If the show is flawed then why do you continue to watch it. It's just to piss us off with your comments isn't it??


To be honest, the last "new" character I actually cared about that was introduced on TVD was Elijah back in season 2. I've had some sympathetic moments with Rebekah and Klaus, but otherwise haven't been able to bring myself to care about any of the characters that were brought in after Elijah. So obviously, I honestly don't care what happens to Meredith at all. I want the show to focus on its main characters and main supporting characters more. Give Jeremy and Caroline and Tyler and even Stefan better plotlines for once. Many of them are sadly underdeveloped, and I care much more about them than any guest star or recurring character that will be killed in 3 episodes. I mean honestly, what happened to Stefan's "crazed ripper" plotline? That lasted less than a quarter of the season and was just swept under the rug with no consequences. What even.

Agreed! But I am not really surprised. THis show has shown again and again that the writers have no idea how to write female characters and all the plotlines they ever get are romance stuff or supportive roles. I guess expecting Meredith to be anything interesting was too much :P


No borednow, the question is why are YOU still here? Why do you waiste your precious time watching a show you despise and commenting within 10 seconds of every TVD post? Don't you have other hobbies? Wow it's ridiculous. Cool we all think your so smart because ou analyze the show sooooo well. There now can you leave??

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
