The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere: Teases & Tidbits

by at . Comments

With just over a week to go until The Vampire Diaries Season 4 kicks off, I was fortunate enough to view an advanced copy of the opening two episodes, "Growing Pains" and "Memorial."

What is Elena like as a member of the undead? Does Michael Trevino make a convincing Klaus? What steps does Bonnie take to save her friend? Consider yourself spoiler warned and read on for a mini rundown...

Bonnie and Bars
  • The Council will play a significant role. Look for power players to rise up and demotions to take place.
  • Bonnie pays a major price to try and save Elena from becoming a vampire. It involves both a special spell and an interaction with Klaus.
  • There is seriously hot Stelena action... but it concludes in a less-than-sexy way.
  • Elena drinks Damon's blood. But does she enjoy it?
  • Damon is still very much in mourning over Alaric. But aren't we all?!?
  • We learn something new about Jeremy.
  • A character makes a surprising return in one of the two installments.

Soak up all these spoilers, fire away with comments over what you are most excited about - and meet me back here the moment next Thursday's premiere ends for a much longer, more detailed recap and review!

Given the spoilers on the eps from Zap2it, Elena apparently enjoys drinking Damon's blood...very much. Also, taking the episode 2 synopsis into account, I think Damo asks her not to tell Stefan. And another site said we'll see a surprise appearance from someone we'd thought we'd seen the last of, so I think it'll be our dear Ghost!Alaric. And Elena is definitely going to puke blood after a hot moment with Stefan, it's been confirmed. And Amie, I'm pretty sure that the Stelena shippers are the youngest part of the fandom - the older ones ship DE or Elena/Elijah or Elena/Matt.


I'm with you R -
I hope the "surprising return" is Elijah!!!


Just bring Elijah back and all will be right in the world. :)


Elena drinks Damon's blood? So they will try to make her like Mikael, have her feed off of vampires... That's not so bad idea...


JP & KW will probably screw up Damon & Elena [I So Hope Not]! TVD is on probation when season 4 starts back [giving it till the end hopefully]. What hot Stelena Action if it is not in a Sexy way? That will do it for me if[Elena's 1st HotVamp Sex, which was a Hot Topic a couple of months ago] JP screw that scene up! People are tired of getting Mind/Heart Screwed when it comes to Damon and Elena. As much as I ♥ Damon Salvatore, I would have to give it up [TVD of course]! I can get my Ian Somerhalder [♥] fix elsewhere [smiles]!!!


Hmm, Katherine back because she thinks Klaus is dead? I was hoping so ;-).


Maybe Bonnie will join Team Klaus huh??


"There is seriously hot Stelena action... but it concludes in a less-than-sexy way." Of coarse it does...they wouldn't want to crush the hearts of all the 13 yearold DE fans, now would they...LOL

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.


Hey, Blondie. Today isn't the worst day of your life. Today and tomorrow, it's a cakewalk. There'll be people around you day in and day out like they're afraid to leave you alone. The worst day? That's next week when there's nothing but quiet. Just a heads up.
