Paging Dr. Fell: Why The New Deal (EP310) Was A Big DealOkay, so The New Deal (EP310) was a big deal for a whole slew of reasons (those are spoilers we can continue to suppress here for the international fans), but we know that fans of The Vampire Diaries book series had reason to be very excited about last night’s episode. After nearly two and a half seasons, a fan favorite book character finally made her debut on TV: Say hello to Dr. Meredith Fell, played by Torrey DeVitto.

If you’ve been following this website since the beginning, when we were covering the pilot’s development and production – waaaaaay back in early 2009 – you know there was a big sticking point with book series fans: Where’s Meredith? We blogged about it one, or two, or three times. In April 2009, Julie Plec acknowledged Meredith’s absence from the pilot for the first time, saying: “Be patient, Meredith fans.” And now here we are.

Zap2It has a nice write-up on Julie and Kevin Williamson finally making good on their promise to bring Meredith into the TV series fold. As is to be expected, there have been some changes made to the character in translating her from page to screen – TV!Meredith is now a Fell and is older than her book counterpart – but Julie hints that the good doctor will have a bigger role to play as we head into the rest of Season 3:

Book Meredith is unique in that she’s one character who is completely unaffected by Damon’s charms — in fact, she makes him a little bit nervous. Most of Meredith’s scenes are with Alaric and Damon, so viewers can look forward to seeing just how Damon reacts to a little romance getting in the way of his bromance. “She’s a Fell, so she’s got a point of view about how to handle the vampire business in this town,” Plec teases. We’re sure Damon will be thrilled.


We know she had a very brief appearance on last night’s episode, but how do book fans feel about finally having Meredith on their TV screens? Let us know in the comments!

Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.

On December 10th, Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder hosted The Ripple Effect event, a charity dinner benefiting The Water Project. Vampire Diaries cast and crew members turned out to support the event and help raise awareness of the desperate need for clean water in Africa and around the world. Julie Plec, Nina Dobrev, Michael Trevino, Arielle Kebbel, and Bianca Lawson all attended the event, and while we haven’t seen a picture of Kevin Williamson yet, he was tweeting about Kat’s speech.

Here’s a selection of photos from Kat Graham Source (see LOTS more in their Gallery):
