Marguerite MacIntyre, aka Sheriff Forbes, Officiates a Same-Sex Wedding
We’re not going to lie — it’s taken us quite a while to start liking Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) on The Vampire Diaries. At first, it was hard to like Caroline’s (Candice Accola) overbearing and vampire hating mom, but seeing how she’s changed her mind about Caroline’s supernatural self and become a protective mom, we love her to death now.
And just in case we didn’t love her enough, it seems as though the Marguerite took her fictional civic duty to the real world this weekend, officiating a same-sex wedding for two of showrunner Julie Plec’s friends.
“Today I get to witness my girls @liztigelaar and @awrou get married, as officiated by Sheriff Forbes @Caryshotwife. Today is a good day.” Julie tweeted on October 26.
We’ll let it slide that Julie didn’t share a photo of her in her fancy wedding attire — after all, she does work so hard to make The Vampire Diaries for us each week. But we just love the fact that Marguerite got to perform such a personal thing this weekend.
Last we saw Sheriff Forbes, she was helping Damon and Elena look for Stefan. Right before that, though? She was having a creepy confrontation with Silas where he cut open her hand and drank her blood. Gross!
