It certainly sounds like another death is coming to Mystic Falls.
Asked by E! News what fans can expect in the near future on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Nina Dobrev couldn't have been less specific - or more ominous - in teasing:
"Something happens in the near future, something pretty tragic and terrible and kind of show changing. It's going to really affect every single person. It's going to especially affect Damon, Elena and Stefan in a pretty crazy, controversial way. The whole show is going to shift. It's going to be explosive."
Might Jeremy somehow be kicking the bucket? What other character is connected closely to Stefan, Elena and Damon?
