The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere: Teases & Tidbits

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.


He's your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.

Klaus [to Caroline]
