The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Scoop: New Villain Ahead!

by at . Comments

We aren't yet done with season three - check out photos of Mystic Falls residents roaring back to the 1920s now, along with the official synopsis for "Before Sunset" - but Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec is already looking ahead to season four.

At last night's Warner Bros. TV's "Television: Outside the Box" event at the Paley Center in Los Angeles, Plec said she and her writing team have been focusing on 2012-2013 for about two weeks and...

"We've got a lot going on, a lot of really amazing character moves, great romance, a new mystery, a new villain and I'm really excited about it."

TVD Core Four

Plec added that the "challenge" ahead of the staff is to find a villain even scarier than Klaus, although she would not reveal to The Hollywood Reporter whether or not Klaus will actually be around to meet this newcomer.

What can viewers expect to close out season three?

A lot of "wooden stake shenanigans," Plec teased, as well as a resolution to a certain love triangle, as the finale will address "the ultimate question of Elena's choice" between Stefan and Damon.

We might as well ask in that case: Which Salvatore should Elena choose?

Tbh I think everyone that has said she should choose Stefan because Damon has her in real are pathetic cuz u never know Ian somerhalder could have done the role of Stefan and Paul Wesley Damon then what would you people say . In my opinion I think the promise that the Salvatore bros made about one she doesn't choose leaves is not gonna be kept because it was made when she was human so it will cause even more drama . People who voted are not choosing through elenas opinion they are choosing though who they think is sexy no that's not how it works in my opinion Katherine should be bought back in the show and one of them should fall for her and everyone knows that's more likely to be Damon . I also think Klaus shoulf come back and cause even more drama cause Elena is not a doppleganger no more cause her blood aint pure no more since she's a vampire -_- which will cause Klaus to go mad cuz he can't make more hybrids and I don't want Tyler to die he's well sexy

I honestly think Paul Wesley (Stefan) is WAAAAYYY HOTTER than Ian Somerhalder (Damon) and me being a TVD fan, Nina Dobrev (Elena) is cuter with Stefan. If anything, bring back Kathreen coz nw thats the right match for Damon. Itching for Season 4! ! !

Elena nd damon should be together nd damon wud do ani thing 4 elena .I also feel sorry 4 damon no 1s ever tld him they love him they just say that they care about him.but I also think elena chose staefan so mani times nd hurt damon that damon deservs better

i think Elena should pick Damon cause she changes him in many ways. Also Stefan left Elena for blood and became a killer again how do we know that wont happen again? who will be there for her? pick Damon he will be loyal.

Damon- alwys him. His feelings are more pure, and he will do anything for her. Stefan will risk with the Elenas life- Damon would NEVER do that. He will always keep her alive- he'll even let Elena hate him for it. Stefan is always making promisses, and he usually is not able to keep them. Damon doesn't make promisses- he will just give his best.

You all want Elena to choose Damon only because he is sexier . That's bull shit. For Elena this doesn't matter. However , they are together in real life , so i hope just in the movie that Elena choose Stefan.

elena should choose stefan coz i dont feel delena hugging en kissing en tellilng each other love u its just so awkward damon is just good protecting her like a big broher soething

Can't wait for Season 4...Love it!!! Awesome actors...ALL OF THEM!!! Hoping Elena chooses Damon but...Will have to stay tuned!!!

Hey I think damon should totally go out with Elena because he is so cute, sexy, and dangerous, he helps elena not get killed, so does stefan, but that doesnt matter because Ian Solmahalder is SO CUTE!!! and is more sexier than Stefan.Whooo! i love you Damon Salvatorr!!!

Elena must choose Stefan,they must be together for always, I mean Stefan is the best thing for Elena, as what Caroline told Elena that Stefan is Elena's epic love.
