One season, sooooo many deaths. So many, we’ve split the Best Death Scene (nickname: Golden Gravestone Awards) into two different polls. Last week, we asked Vampire-Diaries.net readers to chime in on their picks for the most memorable significant character death scenes and you have chosen your Top 5!
It’s the summer hiatus – and IT SUCKS. So to help wile away those lonely TVD-less hours as we await Vampire Diaries Season 3, we’ve rounded up a slew of guest bloggers (and huge Vampire Diaries fans) for a series called Ripping Open TVD. Each blogger will be focusing on one particular aspect of what we’ve just experienced in Vampire Diaries Season 2 and adding a hefty dose of Season 3 speculation. Remember: These are guest posts, so these are the opinions of the person writing them, not necessarily Vampire-Diaries.net. Cool? Cool. This week, Shira Rosenblatt makes the case for why death is no longer a “game changer” on The Vampire Diaries and why she hopes Season 3 will “reinvigorate” the stakes.
“There are more dead people than living. And their numbers are increasing. The living are getting rarer.” Eugene Ionesco, Rhinoceros
It is no surprise that death plays a major role on The Vampire Diaries. After all, two of the three main characters technically are dead. As much as we dread the killing of our favorite characters, whether we knew them a long time or fell in love with them at first guest starring sight, it is expected that on a supernatural show where the characters are in neverending life and death situations, we will inevitably say goodbye to some. In Season 1, Vampire Diaries excelled at killing characters at the right times for the right reasons, though I sometimes disagreed with the choice of character. In most cases, the major deaths last season moved the story forward or changed the story in ways that reverberated through to Season 2. When the show used the term “game changer” to describe a death, more often than not, the description was accurate.
I think we can all agree that the Grim Reaper pretty much lives in Mystic Falls. People die all over this town! They die at dances, at parties, in their houses and out in the woods. There’s so much death going around that a fair number of characters get to experience it multiple times in different ways! With all this wacky expiring going on, it’s high time we gave The Grim Reaper his due on a job well done and vote on the Best Death Scenes in Season 2.
Now, because there are so many awesomely dreadful demises to choose from, we’re splitting this up into two parts – major and minor characters. Which major player will take home the Golden Gravestone this week? Check out your choices below!
And here’s an added bonus: Leave a comment on this post that makes a case for your pick and you’ll be automatically entered to win a copy of A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls: Your Favorite Authors on The Vampire Diaries (co-edited by us and Leah Wilson), courtesy of Smart Pop Books. You have until Tuesday, June 28th at midnight ET to have your comment count as an entry. We’ll also only be counting ONE comment per person, but feel free to discuss away in the comments.
EDIT: Egads! I forgot Caroline! Commenters who pointed this out, you’re totally right! She’s definitely a major character and she did die in Season 2, she should absolutely have been on this list. My only excuse is that I’m so focused on keeping Caroline alive forever that my brain shies away from associating her with death in any way. You should be able to vote for her now if you want to, I apologize profusely for leaving her out.
Vampire-Diaries.net readers have spoken! We asked who your choices were for Most Underrated Character of Season 2 and you made passionate cases for nearly everyone the list. (Who knew there was so much love for John Gilbert and Sheriff Forbes?!) But there can only be one who stands heads and shoulders above them all…
And a special note: You may have noticed some new bylines in the blog these past few days – please welcome Abby and Kate to the V-D.net blogging team! Both have contributed guests posts in the past (check out Klaus – Deconstructing the Destructive and What’s Wrong with a Salvatore on Each Arm?) and are long-time friends of the site. Abby is also a staffer at Salvatore Boarding House, where she does their (hilarious!) weekly Top Ten, and Kate is a contributor at The Televixen, where she does Castle and Haven recaps, interviews TV stars, and covers general TV news. We’re happy to have them on board (and not just because we can now concentrate on getting the new layout finished!) and hope you will be, too. Follow them on Twitter: @AbbyGraham and @katelinnea.
All of us have that one character we feel just doesn’t get their proper due – so now’s the time to be loud and proud. Who was the Most Underrated Character of Vampire Diaries Season 2? Who deserves more recognition for who they are and what they do? Whose Season 2 efforts – be they main cast or guest star – have been so wrongfully overlooked by fandom? We’re excluding characters featured in the Season 2 MVP post so we can highlight the other vampires, witches, werewolves, and humans who had an impact this season. Pick THREE characters you feel were woefully underrated.
NOTE: Don’t confuse “underrated” with “underused.” That’s an entirely different poll!
