Looks like The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” has fans in high places! The series got a fun shout-out on last night’s episode of CBS’s “The Good Wife” when Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) read some “TVD” fan fiction aloud to Diane (Christine Baranski).
Diane, up for a potential position as a Supreme Court judge, asked private investigator Kalinda to do a background check on her, so that she’d be aware of any potential snags should she accept the position. What Kalinda found was a bit of a surprise.
“I’ll only tell you as much as you want to know, so at any moment, you can say stop,” Kalinda warned, before she began to read from her little black book of doom. “Elena knew it was wrong to want Damon. She was about to marry Stefan, after all. Yet, when Damon drew her close, Elena found herself unable to resist his vampire charms. When Damon’s fangs dug into her neck, her whole body pulsed with desire. She needed him. She needed him bad.”
Kalinda thought she discovered Diane’s guiltiest pleasure… writing steamy CW fanfic… but it turned out that Diane’s sweet housekeeper was the scribe.
(Spoiler alert: At the end of the fan fiction, Elena and Damon have sex in a pickup truck. “Well, I’m happy for them,” says Diane.)
Kalinda tells Diane that she’s got to fire the housekeeper. “You’re wanting to become an Illinois Supreme Court justice, Diane. If your name becomes associated with vampire fan fiction, the ridicule factor is going to be hard to beat.”
So, “TVD” fan fiction writers of the world… if you’ve got aspirations of being elected to the highest court in the land, you might want to walk away from that epic Klaroline novel you’ve been posting on your Tumblr. (But first, get to the sexy part. We’ve been waiting.)
