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

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.

wow before the originals????? I mean Klaus is not the original original...there are pre originals??? That is going to be the best part of all this to come...stronger and more evil than Klaus??? hard to believe...and what about the original father of Klaus ......please tell me that that will also be in the future of Vampire Diares...It's only fair seeing that were were introduced to other mothers and fathers ....we need to know a bit about the affair that Esther had with a warewolve yes????


Hey look another season of "The Klaus Diaries"


Delenaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!! That's what I look forward to, and of course more vamps. On a side line, I think Rebecca and Damon also have a lot of common grounds and great chemistry...
Stefan... I do not care about him. But also looking forward to how things are going to wrap around Klaus's return and Tyler and Caroline's forbidden love!


KLAUS!!!! And hopefully STELENA!!!


Ugh I am NOT looking forward to the return of Mr.All talk and no Action KLaus. Original Original Vampires now ? Fat-ass plec must of came up with that while she was in a food coma.


im not happy about elena being a vampire at all nor the fact Alaric is gone but i hope he and Daniel Gillies will be back sometime .Im wasnt happy with Elena choice purely because there was so much build up between delena which they didnt follow through with and one kiss last season didnt justify elena anger toward Damon especially since he has done everything for her .alot of season 3 didnt make sense with delena and so i am not as excited about the next season as the last 2 and a half .i hope this season is better .


They should stop teasing with Delena. Seriously the triangle is getting old plus it may be interesting to see Stefan with another love interest that lives for awhile. At this point both brothers should move on but they won't. How old was Damon when he was turned anyway just wondering? I m just hoping Tyler lives.


I really think Stefan needs a new girl... I mean the show is sort of getting into a "been there done that" thing but now with Elena becoming a vampire it could have been a fresh start! But.. Of course she picked stefan. Let Delena happen and Stefan can be with Meredith!


Okay.. We have had Stelena for 2 whole seasons and a lot of episodes of season 3. Can we PLEASE just have a Delena season?!?!? And that is what I'm most looking forward to the most. Delena just needz to happen already pleeeease!


I agree completely, stop torturing us with stefen and elana let us have Damon and Elana, there is definietly plenty of Chemistry between them. They bring sizzle to the show, definietly one reason I watch, look forward to the new season!

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.


When 9 Russians tell you you're drunk, you lie down.
