We’ve got a roundup of the latest Vampire Diaries Season 4 spoilers from this past month via E!Online, TV Line, TV Guide, and the newest from EW.
Felicia: Needs me some Vampire Diaries information!
It’s flashback time, y’all! Episode four will feature the first flashback of season four and we’re going waaay back…to the 1100s! We’ll meet a vampire hunter named Alexander who was rugged, handsome and charismatic…as vampire hunters tend to be. (Miss you, Alaric!)
Christine: TVD scoop!
“There’s going to be a profound sense of guilt, but shadowing that is going be this overwhelming feeling of being loved. Matt hasn’t felt that kind of love since season one or if ever in his life,” Zach Roerig says of Mystic Falls’ resident human/busboy in the beginning of season four after he learns what happened to Elena (you know, the fangs and bloodlust). “Matt’s going to be guilty, but also because he’s been loved so much, earn his life everyday.” Roerig adds that Matt and Caroline share a scene in the premiere that is “not too emotionally charged” and was the actually the first scene shot of season four. “I was honored to start the year off.”
Via TV Line:
Question: What’s this I’m hearing about a big Vampire Diaries death? Any hints about the victim?—Clay
Ausiello: Stop asking yourself who dies and start asking yourself who does the killing. That’s what people will be talking about the following morning at the watercooler on line at Starbucks.
Question: I’ll take any Vampire Diaries spoiler you’ve got. I’m not picky. —Daniel
Ausiello: A flashback in this season’s fourth episode unearths a “big secret that will change the course of the season for everybody,” teases EP Julie Plec.
Question: Will Bonnie be at odds with group after what she did in the Vampire Diaries finale? —Tony
Ausiello: According to showrunner Julie Plec, she won’t suffer “friendship consequences,” but she will suffer “witch consequences.” Elaborates the EP: “She tapped into something pretty dark to do it, and she’s going to have to tap into that again in the first episode. It’s not going to be a walk in the park for her. She’s going to be struggling with her own darkness inside of her as Elena is starting to adapt to hers.”
Question: What will Meredith’s role on Vampire Diaries be now that Alaric is gone? —Tiffany
Ausiello: In a word, complicated. “Meredith in the beginning is just trying to keep her head above water, realizing that she’s found herself dropped into this supernatural world she never really meant to get involved with,” offers exec producer Julie Plec. “She has a choice to make: Does she want to dive in head first and embrace it? Or does she want to pull back and say, ‘Hey you know what? Why don’t you guys leave me out of it.’ We’ll be seeing a little bit of her in the beginning of the season.”
Via TV Guide:
Is there really a chance that The Vampire Diaries‘ Esther might not be the Original witch?—TJ
NATALIE: The mythology of the witches hasn’t been told completely. Executive producer Julie Plecexplains what’s left to uncover. “To clarify what I said [at Comic-Con] … when Esther used that spell to make her children immortal, which created the Original vampires, that spell existed already. So who wrote it? That’s the question that will remain a question in this season and possibly in the series. We dabbled with the Original vampires, but who were truly the Original witches?”
How long will it be before Elena starts embracing her vampirism on The Vampire Diaries? — Amy
NATALIE: Not long. Once the transition starts, there’s no turning back. Fortunately, she’s got a ton of friends who have already been through it themselves! In the season premiere, Stefan will have a heartfelt chat with Elena about her new strengths and weaknesses. He’ll also present her with her first daylight ring — made especially for her by Bonnie.
Hey, Sandra! It’s been WEEKS since Vampire Diaries scoop. So help a girl out. – Heather
While some of the gang might be looking to help Elena fight her craving for a kill, there’s one person who certainly will not: Damon. Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec says the elder Salvatore is rooting for Mystic Falls’ newest vamp to give in to what he feels is certain to happen. “In his mind, there’s an inevitability to being a vampire that we should just get to and get past. [It's] the equivalent of kicking Elena out of the bird’s nest and letting her fall and see if she can fly.” What do we say gang? Fight or flight?
