Elena Gilbert will be a full-on member of the undead on The Vampire Diaries Season 4. This much we know.
But a few spoilers/teases from this week shift the focus from how Elena will react to this transition and move it to what she will do about it. Our guess, based on the rundown below? KILL.
We've culled a few quotes and tidbits from a week's worth of reveals and interviews. To wit:
- Yes, there will be a major death sequence on the October 11 premiere. But the questions should NOT be "who dies," according to a TV Line tease. Start asking yourself instead: Who does the killing?
- Julie Plec echoed this sentiment in a chat with TV Guide, saying of Season 4 Elena: "How she gets blood is going to be one of the big problems."
- Damon, meanwhile, might find a new friend. Plec says the scorned Salvatore brother will need a new daytime drinking pal. Enter Meredith: "I don't think she's going to be as easy to sway as Alaric was, but there's going to be a buddy bond that forms between them, which will be fun." (Source: Zap2It)
- There will be a significant flashback on Episode 4. It will reveal a big secret that changes the course of the season.
