|Lisa Tucker as "Greta"|
The Vampire Diaries
Jonas and Luka Martin
Anna and Pearl
I know some of you have been waiting for this one for a hot minute and oh...wow...*rubs temples*.
Yes, Greta Martin is - or should I was say, was - related to Jonas and Luka Martin. She's their daughter and sister respectively; she's the whole reason they cut a deal with the vampire Elijah, because his brother Klaus "took" her, and we never get to know what the hell that means. Like, really...was she kidnapped? Did he compel her to walk off with him? Were rufies involved???? I mean, how come we never find out exactly how Klaus found and got a hold of Greta and what all transpired between them?
This, by the way, is one of those excellent examples of shitty, half-assed CW characterization. I have a feeling she was thrown in at THE last minute. After all, two Black warlocks serving a white vamp looks bad, so there has to be a life-or-death "reason", right? Enter Greta, whom we find serves Klaus faithfully like some housebroken crackhead. She claims her duty is to Klaus and his "new order" but we really don't know WTF is going on with her, nor why a perfectly gorgeous actress was wasted on such a shit-tastic character.
She doesn't even care that her whole family is dead. She doesn't bat an eyelash when she gets the news of her family's death, and when you recall the hell they went through trying to get her back...you know what? Never mind.
Now for the dead Negro portion of the rant (what...surprised? Why?).
For lo and behold: that which the writers shoveth in thy face without explanation, they taketh the same way.
