I love Valerie, I really do… but I can’t see her having a happy ending in the series. It breaks my heart to think about it, too. I mean, she’s an awesome character who’s grown up so much and sacrificed a lot…
When/If she finds out about Danny/Vlad, it’s really going to hurt her since she genuinely likes Danny, and looks up to Vlad as her mentor. Considering how hard it is for her to let people into her life, I doubt that that’s a blow she can ever really get over, meaning she’ll seclude herself even more.
I know full well she and Danny aren’t going to get together in the series, and I doubt very much that she’ll ever have anything with Tucker again. People read way too much into that. (Valerie was using Tucker for information, and Tucker would fling himself at any girl who returned his smile. Besides, once Valerie finds out about Danny she’s gonna be mad at Sam and Tucker, too… ) She’s too proud to go back to the populars, and she won’t fit in anywhere else. In the end, thanks to her own pride, temper and sense of self-preservation, the only person she’ll have is herself.
