Adam disagreed with the rather eccentric fanfiction ending in that post, but there's no reason he couldn't change his mind and use that as the reason for writing Heather out. The whole time travel thing wasn't planned originally for the finale. It's one thing to love being a Vampire Cheerleader, but being a Vampire Office Manager? Especially going centuries in the body and brain of a petite high school junior. This lecture on Mr. Dark's carousel might be foreshadowing. The others might have be able to adapt, but she might not have been. There's also watching mortal friends and lovers grow old and die.Gotoh wrote:We definitely know that she didn't change back into a human.tau neutrino wrote:Heather also could have met them off panel, like Char delivering the message to Leonard. Another possibility is that Heather met final death in the intervening centuries (also possible for J.C.) or even turned back into a human and died of old age.
Someone said on the comments for the latter that he must have suffering Stockholm Syndrome. I think he must have wanted to let Heather off the hook, and he definitely didn't enjoy riding in the trunk. In the former, he doesn't seem to be letting them off the hook so much as regretting the violence and Heather and the others being led off in chains. Otherwise he wouldn't have helped the PMS. The trouble is, Leonard saying that makes him sound like a masochist. He was stuck in a trunk for an approximately 10-11 hour trip from Colorado to Las Vegas. Immediately, he had to carry everyone's bags, and Lesley, supposedly the nice one, discouraged someone helping him. When not carrying their luggage, he was expected tostay in a closet or handed off like a dog to the B squad. Suki made him massage her feet and kicked him in the head (that could really cause damage especially with vampire strength). He was forced to perform in drag. Lori called him "thrall" and ordered him around, scolding him when he didn't get in the trunk fast enough. (Heather had her license, so she could have borrowed her parents' car and driven him.) Suki made him buy a Playgirl, then stole his copy of Batwoman and later fed on him. Zoe tried to get him to strip, with Lesley adding insult to injury by referring to his "baby rattle". When he's done serving them, they make him walk home so he won't interfere with them picking up hot guys. Just imagine this done to a female character. Bianca Harrow was painted as a villain just for insulting her servant. If it was a group of males doing it to a female, the writer would be lynched.
It's doubtful Leonard enjoyed Plan BC after the first time. The VC regard him as a thrall, not a man, and he can't initiate anything. He already does what they tell him, so he's stuck carrying their bags while they use Plan BC on the gym owner. (Notice he uses the past tense. Suki hints at using him as a replacement for her Hello Kitty massager, but there would be no time for it that night. Considering Suki's fetishes and the fact that Leonard can't refuse, that might be a good thing.) It's likely that they string him along with fan service then send him off with a peck on the cheek like at the tanning salon. Even if he did get to shag them, no amount of sex should be worth your dignity.
She betrayed both, her parents more actively. See my defense of Mrs. Hartley in this thread.Gotoh wrote:If you ask me, the ones Heather really need to make amends with are her parents.
