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.

Can't wait for the season to start but it seems like every person that is suppose to be the "big bad" are underwhelming after a while. Like someone said the vampire hunter for some odd reason is going to be after Elena (why)? At least this time she can help protect herself is she isn't going over the deep end. Also, which totally makes the whole vampire hunter scenario underwhelming is the fact that basically there are only count them 5 vamps in town minus Kol and Elijah, 2 hybrids, and 1 werewolf coming to town.

bored now thought you weren't going to comment anymore and that you are done watching the show but i bet my ass that you will watch this coming season and comment on the reviews.

Whathappened

- Elena is indecisive on which Fagatore penis she likes better
- The Fagatores go on an un-needed and completely unnecessary rampage/plan to kill the evil, resulting in another casualty/failed attempt... but that doesn't phase them!
- Emo Bonnie is pushed to cast a final spell to rid MF of this "evil"! But because he's hot and the teenybopper fanbase along with JP loves him, he is saved and brought on for the next season. He also during the course of the season falls for an 18 yr old girl, I'm guessing it'll be Bonnie this time. Gonna be a GREAT season 4 I'm EXCITED! >:(

Whathappened

YAAAAAWNNNNN I can already see how this season is gonna go:
- The Fagatore brothers and Elena drama start us off. Elena will make a HORRIBLE mistake that has devastating consequences, but because she is Saint Elena all is forgiven
- Some "evil" makes it's way to Mystic Falls and is after Saint Elena for some arbitrary reason.
- The Fagatores RUSH and do ANYTHING to defend her golden vagina, enslaving the servant witch into casting some spell to protect Elena
- The evil reveals itself to be big, fearsome, and a REALLY attractive 20 something yr old actor. Who is sensitive -_-
- Elena like the dumb ass she is continues to whine and makes deals with the "evil" that only puts herself and others in harms way. Someone close to Bonnie dies (most likely gonna be her dad)because of Elena's actions
- While Bonnie grieves, only Caroline seems to care. EVERYONE worries about Elena's golden vagina, Bonnie is told to stop being a bitch
- Elena is indecisive on which Fagatore penis she likes better
- The Fagatores go on an un-needed and completely unnecessary rampage/plan to kill the evil, resulting in another casualty/failed attempt... but that doesn't phase them!
- Emo Bonnie is pushed to cast a final spell to rid MF of this "evil"! But because he's hot and the teenybopper fanbase along with JP loves him, he is saved and brought on for the next season. He also during the course of the season falls for an 18 yr old girl, I'm guessing it'll be Bonnie this time. Gonna be a GREAT season 4 I'm EXCITED! >:(

Bored Now, didn't you swear off this show and promise the rest of us that you would not return to the forum for TVD???

Ahhh, I am so excited I could scream! Season 4 really has the potential to make it feel like we are "starting all over" again.... that epic feel of Season 1. Yay!

No! Just no!

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

Elena: Why don't you ever let anyone see the good in you?
Damon: When people see good they expect good. And I don't wanna live up to anyone's expectations.
