Not many writers or directors or producers of a show really pay close attention to what they feel the fans would want. Other then pretty little liers and supernatural your the only other one. Yes I will be sad because I loved her with Damon on the show so we need to find a kick ass girl for him next season but for the most part I'm ok with her going and how it's going to happen. I think it was well thought out on your part and I hope one day I get the opportunity to do the things your doing and make the decision your making and make them just as right as you are. Can't wait for next season.
