The Vampire Diaries Season 4 to Center Around Mysterious "Arc of Evil"

by at . Comments

Has the excitement of Phoebe Tonkin joining The Vampire Diaries worn off at all yet? No?

You may continue celebrating, but do so with this warning: things are about to turn awfully dark in Mystic Falls.

That's what producer Julie Plec teased during an interview at this month's CBS Television Critics Association All-Star Party, cryptically saying of early episodes:

There is an overreaching arc of evil, and this year, we're doing something a little different in that we don't know or say who that is right away. The mystery is who is this evil because clearly it's something or somebody, and we don't know who it is. And so that's a question we'll be asking a lot in the first few episodes as we build up to our first... reveal of the season's bad guy.

We presume Plec is referring to the vampire hunter to be portrayed by Todd Williams. But it sounds like there will be a lot going on outside of this one new Mystic Fall resident, doesn't there?

Ponder the possibilities now and head over to Wetpaint to read the full interview with Plec.

Are you kidding! "we're doing something a little different in that we don't know or say who that is right away." Ummm, what about the time when they "hid" the identity of Klaus for how long?!
What Julie Plec says is just stupid and makes no sense. Im sorry but i want spoilers not pointless information.
PLUSSSS, we already know that this bad guy's name is Conner, played by Todd Williams. So yeah, pointless quote right there ^^ Ms Plec. That is all.

LMAO at Plec's comments about Bonnie: "...the actions that she will have to take in the premiere will put her in a very dark place....."
Prior to season 3, Julie Plec kept saying that Bonnie would have a new love interest, which turned out to be a joke, considering that there were flashback relationships with even more screen time. I'd love to get excited about the idea of a darker Bonnie, but for all I know, Bonnie in a "dark place" could just be code for Bonnie in the corner....again!

LOVEEEEE The vampire diaries. Cannot wait for season 4. Julie is the BEST! btw people who are being negative take note. Julie must be doing something right, TVD's has a season 4. Kevin and the Secret circle was cancelled. Keep up the GREAT work Julie!!!!

Man! constructive criticism is one thing : but some of the comments in this thread amount to nothing but insults... I love the show even if I don't agree with all their decisions.

This show had become so predictable and disappointing in surprised that it has high ratings. The actors are great ( except Elena) but the story line has to change!! Julie plec if ur reading this please do something!!

Ugh yet more mindnumbing dullness from Julie Plec's pie-hole.

Little-bit

Nobody is evil in Mystic Falls just a person with daddy problems. And mommy problems.

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.
