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?
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!
