by at . Comments

Non-spoiler alert: Elena Gilbert will transition into a member of the undead on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere.

Actual spoiler alert: She'll be placed behind bars on that same episode.

TV Guide Magazine has published the first photo of the new Elena. Check it out below and get a glimpse at this bloodthirsty creature. Also, take note of her location. Who has her locked up? Her friends for her own protection, perhaps?

Elena as a Vampire

Nona Dobrev has said her character won't want to eat people simply because she's now a vampire, leaving her "hungry and moody." We can imagine!

Watch our interview with Dobrev at this summer's Comic-Con for more scoop from the actress and check out another Vampire Diaries premiere picture now.

Elena Gilbert as a Vampire: First Imprisoned Look! Comments (Page 2) - TV Fanatic


Ok, i cant stand the fact that elena will not kill people, what type of show is this for her not too. Most of the fans wanted and needed to see another side of elena. For god sakes we have blood thirsty klaus who not to mention turned into a fan fav bc of his appetite. And not to mention damon and his cruel ways, so ot just dont add up. I guess only time will tell, idk im ready for a blood thirsy, incontrollable, cruel elena. We deserve that much!


@Simply Because
In what world is "won't" not a word? If you wanna be a grammar nazi, you have to actually be right.


I really cannot believe I just read a line, "She said her character won't want to eat people." Won't want? Are you serious? No, the proper thing to say is "She said her character will not want to eat people," or, "will never eat people," or "does not want to eat people." Won't is not a word! No wonder I have no hope for society when it comes to the English language. Moving on, I love The Vampire Diaries. I never read the books, but so far this show has to be one of the better ones on The CW. And for those that say it is boring and judge Nina, as well as the others, then why the hell are you watching it?


@ Jacqueline
It's an intresting idea that it may be Bonnie! Elena looks frightened in this photo, and it has been said that Bonnie will be trying everything to prevent the transition. Since this seems like a location we've never seen before, it could very well be a place where Bonnie has taken Elena so that she does not feed and no one can find her while B figures out how to return her to being a human. At least we're im September now!


i like this show but im also not crazy about it at the same time.
It's like I have to watch it because i watched since the start and I DO like it but also it doesn't make that excited. Its a weird feeling lol


as i was saying... elena needs to kill @least 4 people,talk about asking too much...!


OH DEAR LORD...SAVE US NOW elena can NOT adapt stefans bunny,she has to eat people,hell u know what i want elena to WIPE OUT HALF OF MYSTIC FALLS atleast that would make her a little bit less boring than human elena...because we all know how boring human elena is...i hope they figure out some kind of way to make evil elena appear,because that girl can NOT eat bunnies.ok,im setting goals high for this season... and i mean way,way,waaayy up high,i want elena to KILL atleast 4 people this season,talk about


I'm not sure why she's locked up but it might be for her own protection after she finishes her transition. It might have been Damon even though I'm not completely sure or Bonnie. I wonder how Elena will be as a vampire and I can't wait for season 4. =]


Now the questions that come to mind: where is this place and when is it, what kind of world where ugliness is the norm and beauty the deviation from that norm? You want an answer? The answer is, it doesn't make any difference. Because the old saying happens to be true. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, in this year or a hundred years hence, on this planet or wherever there is human life, perhaps out amongst the stars. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Lesson to be learned in the Twilight Zone.
