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?

i recken klaus will live, (hello! he can't die, otherwise no one else really poses a threat to elena.) klaus needs elena alive for his hybrids. someone will come along who wants elena dead so klaus can't do that and it will be someone from kalus's past or someone who could kill klaus and potentially those vampires he created (who i think is stefan and what not) so they'll pose a massive 'threat'. well maybe anyway.. hopefully season four is better than the start of season three!!

Saraah

i highly doubt that she'll end up with either one of them otherwise it wouldnt be an option,to be honest i think that the relationship between stefen and elena is only going to be like a brotherly and sisterly relationship and if thats the case then thats the only shot delena have but even then i really couldnt see delena in an actual relationship where they kiss and hug and say they love it each other it feels awkward just thinking about it eghh!

I would like to point out that writers are "handy" with words....while she said "love triangle" and how could we all not immediately think of Elena, Damon and Stefan-there are more love triangles in TVD! Also, I think i read on a spoiler that Stefan and Damon had a little brother? There is also Klaus and his werewolf bloodline aka possible family (more people to be ashamed of him). They also mention "loopholes" a lot well I'm sure they will try and find someone, maybe someone that was turned when the originals were that knows how to kill an original and still keep the bloodline alive...lastly Elena is the doppelganger which may mean that eternally that is part of the balance-two love interests....think about it-Katherine first had Elijah and Klaus, Damon and Stefan maybe that is her gift or curse, someone who eternally loves her so she doesn't or (didn't) voluntarily really want to offer her doppelganger services....she is supernatural so who knows what else she can/will do.... Until Thursday later TVD Fanatics

Why do i have the feeling that Elena is going to choose Damon....i don't know..cause maybe they have been builting all this feelings for too long and they need to pay all the fans off...i have no idea.!maybe because if she chose Stefan it would be hardly a suprise....and they stated many days ago that they are going to surprise everyone that's being watching the show..i HOPE they do make her realise her true feelings for Damon because it's getting really hard to watch her being so confused..we need action between her and Damon....ACTION!it's unfair..but my opinio is that this triangle is a non stop one because of the fact that the whole storyline is based on that and the produsers said a few days ago that these two brother will always be in love with Elena and not anyone else so will Elena be in love with both of them...you see, there might be a decision for now but not an endgame!Julie Plec said so!

I like Elijah too. If you've read the books please tell me who she chooses... please... pretty please..

It says that Elena chooses one of the Salvatore brothers, so it seems that everyone else is left out. I "think" in the books she went to Damon then back to Stefan but then again they are not following the books closely. When Julie says she thinks that she will have to leave the country I can only guess with how many want Elena to be with Damon, that it would be Stephan or NEITHER. That would be a choice of which Salvatore brother too. I hope they do something with her character who has been pretty boring this year. Love the show.

who's the new villain??

Elena needs to choose herself and the brothers need to choose each other. Elena can grow up somemore and then be with Elijah. They have a spirtual connection and chemistry.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
