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 used to like elijah but it looks like daniel gillies has been doing drugs - he's lost is edgy sparkle, now he's just edgy.


I'm TIRED of the The Elena Show and The Klaus Diaries, right now her, Klaus, and the Fagatore brothers need to go away! The show should focus on Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Caroline. ^
I can live with Klaus, as long as he keeps his drawings and tears off my screen, but Elena and Damon should get exiled to Denver already. I want Elijah upgraded to Regular and Plec can go write more fanfics. Then we're talking.


out of all the spoilers im so glad that klaus will be back in his body i think he is a great actor and i really like is character i dont think that tyler would have been able to pull off acting like klaus we need joseph morgan to be klaus and with everything that happen last season with elena and damon you knew they could just leave it like they did ofcourse they have to have a moment i dont really think they are going to rewrite history again and make originals before the originals im sure it was a misunderstanding out of all the relationships i really hope and cant wait for caroline and klaus i love getting spoilers but i really really dont want to wait til october this sucks so much stop hating on julie you hate the show that much but yet you have no life because you still waste your time talking shit


Hey look another season of "The Klaus Diaries" FUCK TO THE YES. KLAUS

I second my twin,and Klaus diaries is way more interesting than SE/DE diaries and Bonnie the servant witch. Sorry for the term but that's what show has been reduced to.


To me Damon was only cool and Bad-ass during the first season. But then Elijah came in and totally killed in the Badass department,and has been sitting atop the vd throne of awesomeness ever since.


Lmao @whathappened cheers to that comment Thats how I imagine Julie plec to a tee.....


@IIK_vomit LOL food coma LOVE IT! Food coma while dreaming and putting herself into Elena's shoes imagining having sex with both Damon and Stefan because we all know her fat ass can't get any herself! I'm TIRED of the The Elena Show and The Klaus Diaries, right now her, Klaus, and the Fagatore brothers need to go away! The show should focus on Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Caroline.


Hey look another season of "The Klaus Diaries" FUCK TO THE YES. KLAUS


God I hope this season will have Delena BIG scenes!S&E r so boring,in my opinion,they have been together 2 seasons!Stefan needs a new love interest,because Elena truly loves Damon now,she will finally realize that Damon was always the one 4 her!It's just that the compulsion confused her feelings towards Damon,and always chose Stefan,because Stefan it's what she was looking 4 since Damon met her first!And I want 2 see Klaroline this season,pleasee ;)


I'm interested in the story, not in Delena or Stelena thing. It's so boring.
