It’s pretty much Meredith’s fault that Elena is a vampire. Will there be backlash?
Here’s what I’ve been saying, and I really do stand by this: I think Meredith should be getting praised for this! People don’t realize there would be no more Vampire Diaries if Meredith hadn’t saved Elena’s life. She’d be dead! I think we should all acknowledge that. You’re right.
They should really change it to The Meredith Diaries.
You know, what? I’m going to have a talk with Julie Plec about that later today.
Speaking of Julie, she recently said Meredith would be a “stabilizing force” for Damon this season. Can you elaborate?
I think you’ll see a bond grow between Damon and Meredith. It’s cool because he’s this erratic character, and she really holds her ground with him and with all the other characters. She’s strong-minded and doesn’t put up with his bulls**t. So deep down, whether he acknowledges it or not, he admires that about her. That’s how their friendship begins, really.
