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.

Tots agree Julie.absolutely.


I for one think October is like 900yrs away and I need me some VD, but don’t want the winter and cold weather to come. I will admit though I love the Stefan/Elena couple and hope it continues forever. I also think that because Elena saved Meredith (Bathroom scene) that Meredith felt in her heart that she should save Elena from that brain hemorrhage she had, I don’t think Meredith or anyone else could have seen what was coming next for Elena, i.e. drowning or worst die - Vampire Elena.
I hope they keep Meredith, she really can act, she puts feelings in her character, and I like her because she did save Elena, no matter what.
My option: Call me old fashion, but it would be disgusting to me if Elena and Damon get together.
1. Because, it’s like your boyfriend goes to war, and then you start screwing his brother, Yikkieeee/Nastyyy.
2. Stefan and Elena have that soul mate, love deep into your eyes kind of chemistry in this show, and I don’t want that to end. It’s this reason I love and keep watching this show. "StefLena forever" and then some.....


Criasly i just nid delena!!...how can elena end up with stefan, its not right. Honestly, it doesnt make sense. Somebody give damon a break or this show is just not worth it....i love VD but if it doesmt end like that, ill kill the writers. Honestly, i wouldnt watch if damon wasnt there!!..would anyone?


I can't believe Alaric's dead... He was my favorite freaking character!!! Does anyone else really want Elena and Katherine to become frenemies this season? I think that would be so cool. I used to be a hardcore Delena fan, but I watched all the episodes over again and now I just want her to pick one. Or even better, DON'T pick one! I can't really see her ending up with either Salvatore anymore. I feel like maybe she should go date some other guys or just hang out alone for a little while. I hope we see more of her and Elijah, not necessarily as love interests, but as friends. They're great together. As for Meredith, if she stays for a long time I hope they make her character more interesting. I don't really care that much about her character right now.


I wish she WON'T be back ever, actually.

Actually, the part about Vikings in America is not very far-fetched at all. Go google Leiv Eriksson - he was a Norwegian Viking who went ashore in 'Vineland' - New Zealand.
I know that. But "Vineland" refers to isles on american shore ON THE SIDE OF ATLANTIC OCEAN. California is on the VERY opposite part of the continent where Pacific Ocean is, its entirelly impossible for vikings and their level of preparedness to SURVIVE long enough to even reach that far in the land, what's with various native tribes and very different climate from what they were accustomed to. Reaching THE OTHER shore is so utterly impossible. Settling - even more so due to natives.


I can't believe Alaric is dead. Fav line: (to damon) "you're on speaker, d**k!"


Honestly, I don't really have anything against her, but no, I don't want to see her in the storyline, I think that there is enough characters, that are more important than bringing her in full time, plus there have been numerous shows that just kept bringing characters on them when you don't need them or want them, and take away from the original one's, and that is the reason you watch is to see the main characters, not the unimportant ones.

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. Actually, the part about Vikings in America is not very far-fetched at all. Go google Leiv Eriksson - he was a Norwegian Viking who went ashore in 'Vineland' - New Zealand. That was around 1000 AC. So that part is covered. But the rest? Wealthy Vikings in Eastern Europe with Jewish, German and Norse names who write in Runes despite being the only people in the village who understand it? Great logic there, TVD. Not to mention that not one of the kids had married and established their own families... even Rebekah should have been wed... but no, they were still living with their parents and playing with swords in the backyard(I'm looking at you, Elijah...). So! They were socially retarded as well. Great villains you've made, Plec.

She shot him in the head. He was dead. Had he been given vamp blood prior to that, he would have gotten fangs. He didn't. End of story. Liz must've been served some cover-up story. Meredith is supernatural, or the writers have gold fish memory(no, actually, science says gold fishes can remember for up to six months. The writers have... rock memory).

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.
