Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers: A BFD For...

by at . Comments

This just in: Elena Gilbert will turn into one of the undead on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere. This much we know.

Many questions surround this change, of course: How will she react? What will she remember about Damon? Will she still want to be with Stefan?

Klaus at the Door

But the most significant development from the third season finale will also impact Klaus, who Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec has already promised will be alive and sort of well when the show returns in September.

"The loss of the doppelganger is gonna be a BFD for Klaus and will drive his actions for the season," Plec tells TV Guide. "Suddenly he's vulnerable for many reasons. There's a stake that can kill him, a witch that can desiccate him, and no way to build up the hybrid army he needs - psychologically, at least - to feel safe. Plus, Caroline's going to be peeved at him once she realizes he bamboozled her. In other words, he ain't gonna be so happy."

Read through more spoiler scoop in the TV Guide Mega Buzz now and then vote: Are you glad Klaus is still alive?

I am really glad that Klaus is back. I really missed it without him last season, I was sad when he left because he Joseph was a good actor but you feel for Klaus that he wants to belong and I hope he has a love interest and does not die this season. Klaus made the show so much better, even though without him Elena and Damon make a really great super couple. I hope it stays that way now that she is a vampire. :) :( I will await Season 4 and see how the originals come back and Klaus too and wreaks havoc on everyone. I feel deep down Klaus is good and bad but wants attention, love, power, control and affection.

Thirdly though and probably the most important to the show in general is Elenas transition. Im pretty sure that this huge event is likely to change the whole dynamic of the show quite a bit. I wouldnt be suprised and am secretly hoping too that by changing her into a vamp their going to make her character slightly darker and at last make her self sufficiant. I will be very dissapointed if they change her back to human, I cant see that event ever really being pulled off though anyway. Lets face it even if Bonny had been there within a short time after she died if she had the power to turn vampires back to human dont you think at the very least she would have turned her mother back not too mention a few others who would likely choose their humanity if given the choice. Lastly the changes with the couples in season 4. Im a big fan of Claus Caroline as long as its the Claus played by Joseph Morgan and not him in Tylers body. As long as they bring in a new "bad guy" I think that deep down Claus could be really good and that a lot of the evil hes caused has been out of his consuming need to have his family together and be loved. He seems to really like if not love Caroline as much as he knows how. If theres anyone who has a chance to expose this side of him it would be Caroline, and she really deserves happiness. On the Elena/Stefan/Damon topic I have never been strongly for or against Stefan and Elena being together even though I personally prefer Damon but I think that while Elena was human they made more sense than her being with Damon. Now that she going to be a vamp though (provided she can exept being one) Damon are a much better match. I have no doubt that this match is where the show is heading, at least for a little while and I cant wait for season 4. For a show that started out looking like it would be "Home and Away" but with Vampires etc the VD writers have done an awesome job in keeping viewers of all ages hooked. Congrats

Ok firstly Rebekah only killed Elena so that herself and her two remaining brothers could finally be free and stop running. If Claus wasnt staked she never would have done it. Im hoping Claus will realise this and leave her alone, lets face it as much as she can be a self obsessed pain she also plays the role of an "evil" female character well. Female "bad guys" have been dominated throughout the series by the males and were almost extinct after Catherine changed sides. Secondly I cant believe people have hardly mentioned the loss of Elaric. I for one am a little sad at the loss of this character not to mention the fact that this now only leaves what like 4 of the main characters as human not to mention that Elena and Jeremy losing loved ones is getting slightly old and boring.

Klaus took a bunch of elenas blood though when she hit her head and soo shouldn't he still have some bit of hope for more hybrids and ps I hope meridith gets her heart ripped out for Elenas death just saying

what a suspenseful ending! cant wait for season 4. Elena an undead and Klaus cant make any hybrids. unfortunately Tyler just have to be the one-body for Klaus (Bonnie Why!?). I love Vampire diaries though cant wait. i wonder if Elena still going to choose!?... who will it be? Stefan...! Damion...! mmh! just have to wait and see!

I do love the turnouts of the finale, Elena's choice was amazing, consuming love, what the hell. Stefan is the right thing for her, we just need a little rekindling of their love, something that could happen to spark it up again. Bonnie is pissing me off, couldn't there be another way, she gave KLAUS a hibrid body but i guess i could forgive her, there was no other way. Damon needs to fall in love with someone else, Elena/Katherine baggage isnt good for him, He needs a break. I do hope there's a way they could save Tyler cause Caroline is gonn be pissed. Naturally a lot of cast's would be pissed next season. A Lot. I Love TVD

I am not sure where I read it, but I also read that the producers are hinting at a vampire reversal. Paul Wesley hinted that at some gala for the show, and that sounded kinda cool. So maybe Elena won't be a vampire very long.

I like the whole vampire thing they have going on but it won't initially change Elena's mind on Damon or Stefan... people have mentioned that Elena will remember Damon compelling her to forget he met her first but what about in the (1st/2nd) season when she lost her necklace with vervain in and he told her he loved her but didn't deserve her and then compelled her again? Surely this will have a slight impact :) Someone on here earlier said that Delena fans needed to butt out but nope, we still have hope mwahahahaha :)

Like Rose said: 'Damon will either be the best thing for her or the worst. Stefan will always be good for her.'
Plec says we'll see Stelena be together for a LITTLE while in season 4. I can imagine --> she chose him. It would be weird if she just changed her mind.
BUT everything Elena's ever felt, al her characteristics will be magnified once she is a vampire. Adding her new memories of Damon, Elena could just become a whole different person. Memories make you who you are.
In the end of season 4 we'll hopefully find out what kind of love: supportive love or consuming love, will win Elena's heart..

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.
