The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Scoop: New Villain Ahead!

by at . Comments

We aren't yet done with season three - check out photos of Mystic Falls residents roaring back to the 1920s now, along with the official synopsis for "Before Sunset" - but Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec is already looking ahead to season four.

At last night's Warner Bros. TV's "Television: Outside the Box" event at the Paley Center in Los Angeles, Plec said she and her writing team have been focusing on 2012-2013 for about two weeks and...

"We've got a lot going on, a lot of really amazing character moves, great romance, a new mystery, a new villain and I'm really excited about it."

TVD Core Four

Plec added that the "challenge" ahead of the staff is to find a villain even scarier than Klaus, although she would not reveal to The Hollywood Reporter whether or not Klaus will actually be around to meet this newcomer.

What can viewers expect to close out season three?

A lot of "wooden stake shenanigans," Plec teased, as well as a resolution to a certain love triangle, as the finale will address "the ultimate question of Elena's choice" between Stefan and Damon.

We might as well ask in that case: Which Salvatore should Elena choose?

Whats with everyone calling Stefan,Stephan?? If you are a true fan, you will know it is Stefan!!! :@


I think Elena should end up with Stefan coz Stefan has been there for her the whole way.. well exept when he was forced to turn everything off.. But they should end up together.. Sorry Damon..


i think elena should end up with damon and stefan with kathrien and elena should have a baby with damon since humans can procreate and only vamps cant which she isnt .


Okay, Ist of all I miss Catherine. N I think Catherine should end up with Stefan. N Damon with Elena. That would be weird n exciting. Stefan is just too good for Elena n Elena too gd for Damon


I think is fair if elena ends up with demon and stefen with katherana petrova .dont u think demon deserve 2 b loved .and kat always goes 4 stefen,he can relove her


plzzzzzzzzzzz pick damond


Pls stefan!!!he's always care for her,PLS JUST PICK STEFAN!!!damon alr had elena in real life/in the show,should let stefan hav her!!!
