Vampire Diaries: New Characters and their Quick Demises
It seems as though the producers ofÂ Vampire Diaries hopped on the vampire bandwagon at just the right time; the characters are young and fearless and the plot deliciously thickens week after week â¦ but thereâs one question that needs to be answered: why do new characters get killed off or disappear so quickly? Letâs take a look at 3 different examplesâ¦
Vicki – A small-town girl with a ton of baggage, Vicki had great potential to be a bitchinâ vampireâs apprentice. This character had a jaded outlook on life, and thatâs what made her so unique; her teen angst shrouded her inner little girl. But when push came to shove (and itÂ did), the producers decided to get rid of her â¦ was her would-be storyline too strong for the overall showâs plot? Anyway, Damon brainwashed her family members after her untimely death. Donât you think Caroline should have gone instead?
Lexi – This age-old blonde bombshell rolls into town to celebrate Stefanâs birthday like a good friend ought to, but Damon has other plans in mind. Long story short, Lexi finally got Stefan to admit his true intentions for coming back to Mystic Falls; however, she came off as a home wrecker after Elena stopped-by the Salvatoreâs humble abode. Damon ended up framing the heart of gold time traveler just to cover his own selfish tracks. Was it jealousy that got in the way of brotherly bonding, or was Damon just a dead and heartless soul?
Anna – One of the more useless characters onÂ Vampire Diaries, Anna is a user and abuser. She comes into the picture attempting to seduce the naÃ¯ve Jeremy Gilbert, but it turns out that sheâs just a mamaâs girl. It was centuries ago that in the midst of the great vampire hunt, Annaâs mother Pearl was put away for all eternity with other practicing vamps. In the latest episode, those lost souls were ârescuedâ and Anna walked away scot-free with mama in tow â¦ supposedly never to be seen again.
