Like any popular TV show or franchise, fans have different opinions about the characters they follow week in and week out. 

The Vampire Diaries is no different. Eight seasons, followed by two spinoffs, Legacies and The Originals (which had five seasons), saw plenty of shipping and headcanon with all of the characters that came and went.

Enter Camille, played by Leah Pipes. She’s a bartender who served the wrong hybrid at the wrong time in her bar before embarking on a relatively short adventure as a new vampire.

Cami’s character deserved better than what happened to her, according to some fans on Reddit.

Cami deserved better in love and in death

A few Redditors sounded off about how Cami deserved better in her relationships and didn’t need to die toward the end of season 3.

“Klaus loved Camille way more than whatever feelings he had for Caroline.” And another said:

“Klaus was incredibly bad. I don’t know how unpopular this is, but I’ve seen plenty of people praising him. Watching his actions often made me mad. It wasn’t until Cami and Hope came along that he became much better of a person.”

“Klaus and Camille were soulmates.” So, why didn’t Klaus and Camille end up together?

Perhaps it was because some fans felt Camille and Klaus seemed forced. Yes, Klaus felt as if Cami could be his confidant, and he could trust her because she was human. There was no suspicion there. She was just tending bar.

Yet, could a human really, honestly and truly, love a powerful vampire-werewolf hybrid who has been around for over a millennium? On the other hand, showrunners teased a Caroline-Stefan wedding from season 1, and Klaus had to move on from Hayley at some point, right? 

Aside from her relationships, fans liked Cami and her drive to help people, and many wished they got more time with the character after she became a vampire.

Clearly, the showrunners need to up the drama and supernatural shipping throughout The Vampire Diaries and the spinoffs.
