Józef Simmler, Death of Barbara
Radziwiłł (detail), 1841
What you've said about JP having promoted this idea of TVD being Dawson's Creek the gang edition, is absolutely on point. It's something that bothers me with Candice King as well, she should not be on a vampire show if she finds stuff like that dark. No one wants to see sunshiny Caroline with a fluffy and sweet romance and it's quite bothersome that she's constantly pushing for that image.
