NEW SPOILER/SPECULATION POST!
Post any and every spoiler until we get to ComicCon. ComicCon and the spoilers that come out of it will get a podcast, just like the previous two seasons, so I’ll be looking out for those. When it comes to ComicCon, e-mail me whatever spoiler you find like usual, and I’ll of course credit you.
Once this post gets too crowded with links, I’ll create another one.
Co-hosts: Cana and Olu
In this episode, Olu, Cana, and I react to Julie Plec’s post-finale interviews and season 4 previews, and we cast our wishes for each of the characters for season 4.
Quotes of the Podcast: “I feel like Stefan should fade away from Elena, because now she’s basically Katherine. As soon as, or the first time, she compels somebody, he should be like, ‘Okay I’m done.’ [Because it’d bring up uncomfortable memories and he’d be triggered]”-Cana
“[Julie Plec] says that it’s hard to keep [heroines] dynamic, and fresh, and new, and I feel like that should not be a problem, especially on this show, especially with these characters, because like we’ve said these characters are somehow interesting despite the writers. Elena is the main female protagonist. Okay. She has Jeremy, her brother who has lost a lot and has basically dealt with emotional damage from that. There’s an avenue for freshness and dynamic and newness. She has Bonnie, best friend who is a witch and feels she has a calling and has this long history that is also tied to [Elena’s] Petrova/doppelganger history. There’s another avenue. She has Matt, her ex who also has a messed family. And then there’s her friend Caroline, who was her frenemy. And then there’s Tyler, and they’re both founding kids, okay whatever. So she has these opportunities, but again she’s only concerned about the Salvatores. She’s not concerned about these secondary characters, so I feel like as a result, Elena is limited in the amount of experiences she can have, because [Julie] is not interested in those relationships. […..] So if she’s not interested in the people in Elena’s life, then no wonder it’s hard for her to write Elena.”-Me
“Another thing that shows they don’t respect Stefan, that they don’t actually care about him as a character is people don’t have reactions to him. [People don’t get to keep their reactions to Damon or there’s no change after they react to Damon, but they sometimes get to react]. No one reacts to [Stefan].”-Olu
