Vampire Diaries Producer Teases Season Premiere "Death Sequence," Major Delena Moment

by at . Comments

Alaric Saltzman may be dead (moment of silence, fans...), but Julie Plec has made it clear in a new interview that one of the history teacher's final acts will play a key role on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere.

"[He] told a lot of details about a lot of people that in the first episode back we’ll see have created a little bit of a domino effect,” the producer told Entertainment Weekly at the Television Critics Association press tour, adding that a “powerful, surprising death sequence” will take place on October 11.

Other tidbits/spoilers revealed by Plec include:

  • Delena supporters should especially look forward to episode four of the new season: “There’s a really interesting moment between Damon and Elena where she’s acting a little bit out of character and they both get caught up in a moment."
  • Klaus will quickly return to his body... and continue to cause problems moving Forwood: "Things are going to be evolving and changing for all points of all triangles on this show.”
  • Bonnie will desperately try to prevent Elena from transitioning. We somehow doubt she'll succeed.
  • Hot vampire sex may be on the way between Elena and a mystery man, but it doesn't go down on either of the first two episodes at least.
  • We'll see various Originals return throughout the season... but should we NOT refer to them as Originals? "Esther’s creation of the original vampires was predicated on a spell that she already had, so where did she get that? And what does that mean?” asks Plec. “Does it mean that there are vampires that pre-date the original vampires?”
  • Look for Klaus to have some kind of agenda that involves the new hunter in town.

Which of these storyline has you most excited? Who might be involved in the aforementioned death sequence? And, seriously, how much will you miss Alaric?!? Sound off now.

I blame Elena for Elijah's softness this season. In Bringing Out the Dead he was his good old self, scheming, switching loyalties, getting a haircut, flirting with Damon and catching up on MF's latest gossip in just a few hours. Then, in Dangerous Liaisons, he met Elena, and everything about his character went to hell from there. And that's a tragedy, because I actually used to like Elejah. In season 2. They trusted each other, and the relationship was (with the exception of him wanting her to get sacrificed by his brother on a creepy alter and her having killed him once) mutual. Then, in season 3, their friendship turned into crap. You tried to kill my entire family and lied to my face? I'm so sorry, I have to write you a tender letter and flee town out of guilt because I saved my family. You tried to kill us all again and succeeded with my brother? I couldn't bear to kill you, so I'm going to spend decades running, just for you. I HATE this. Bring back season 2's Elijah! Kill Elena and make him main character. Make it happen, Plec. Please.

Yeah I know Elijah didnt shine in this season as he did in season 2,but neither did Klaus.In fact he hasnt at all ......... Give me some examples of scenes where you were like "Fuck yeah !! Klaus is the shit !!" . . I myself dont know of any.

Elijah didn't do much badassery in season 3. Of course he was impressive in season 2, but my point is that he's really just a softie now. The most "epic" he did was rip a hybrids heart out and kidnap Elena (which he eventually felt sorry for, writing a cheesy apology to the girl who HELPED someone try to kill his family). Then he came back to negotiate Klaus' body, that was reasonable (it's his brother). But really, Klaus will always have that criticism of going soft since he's supposed to be the villain, but Elijah was really no different and I was barely impressed.

In terms of being a pure Badass VAMPIRE Elijah kills klaus.I posted somewhere that we have yet to see any true moments/scenes were you sit back and go "Wow,holy shit" with anything related to Klaus.In this viewers eyes, the scene from season 2 involving Elijah (with moonstone) coming to Damons aid and annihilating werewolf jules wolfpack in mere seconds has yet to be topped.The man is awesome and is the shows best Vampire handa down.

**From an older post of mine** **Edit** Im fed to the teeth with the Lameness that Klaus has become.Season 2 did a great job of creating an aura of mystery around the (still up for debate) first and oldest living Vampire.But somewhere during this season (S3) he's just crashed and burned as someone to fear.I to now want the show to bring on an actual villian that instills fear in the hearts of all that is good in Mystic falls.Not some second rate villian who spends far to much time monologing about what they intend to do,but rather just DO . . . . Kinda like The Joker in The Dark Knight.In the movie he says he never has a plan,he just does what he does.An absolute psychotic Vampire in that vein is something I would personally love to see

I can't wait to see what happens in season 4 and see if things get better throughout each event. =]

llk_vomit, I have to disagree with Elijah. He's still the best Original, but his badassery got numbed down when he turned TeamElena. Come on, the girl helped his mother to kill him, and when the gang found white stakes for Klaus, she STILL didn't care about them being linked. He even apologized to her via letter. "sorry for letting my sister try to kill you because you tried to kill me first" yeah I'll always love Elijah but FUCK that, he's not drawing and crying now and then but he's actually softer than Klaus.

I talk shit about her because shes fucking the show up !! Nuff said

Happy birthday Paul Wesley hope its the best one yet

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.
