We haven’t seen the lovely Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) on The Vampire Diaries since she helped move Caroline and Elena into college — and even that appearance was too brief for our liking. Luckily, Mystic Falls very human sheriff is back in the 100th episode, set to air Thursday. What could Marguerite tell us about Season 5, Episode 11 (“500 Years of Solitude”)?
What’s Sheriff Forbes been up to since we last saw her, now that her daughter is “safely” away at college? "She could be drinking with Matt at the bar," Marguerite joked with Zap2it. "But she's probably finally sheriffing the town now that it's calmed down a little. Or not. She's probably just as effective or ineffective as ever. She's trying to fight her way through as just a little human in a town filled with supernaturals." She and Matt should totally start a Team Human support group.
Marguerite spilled that Sheriff Forbes would definitely be in the 100th episode, but what role will she play in the milestone installment and moving forward? "I don't know what their trajectory is with Sheriff Forbes right now. She does show up in the 100th episode, but then I don't really know what her thing is after that," Marguerite confessed, which doesn’t seem to bode well for more Sheriff Forbes appearances in the near future. This is very sad for us, but Marguerite has enough TVD-related work on her plate. She is one of the writers for TVD spin-off, The Originals!
"I'm so wrapped up in The Originals right now that I can't possibly hold another thought, unlike Julie Plec who is just some kind of a freak of nature,” gushed Marguerite. “She's amazing. I don't understand how her brain could hold that much. But I'm always thrilled whenever I get to show up in an episode. It makes me happy."
As for what else might be going down in Mystic Falls for the big 1-0-0, the TVDer did give this little tease: "I will say that you will see a lot of familiar faces and it's very thrilling. Watch it live. You will regret not watching it as soon as it airs, believe me." OK, you convinced us.
Are you as excited as we are to know that Sheriff Forbes is back in this week’s ep? Did you know Marguerite is a writer on The Originals? Sound off in the comments below!
