Last time we were in Mystic Falls, Rebekah caused a big ol’ car accident, Dr. Fell roofied Elena with vamp blood to save her from a brain hemorrhage, Caroline fled from Tyler’s love shack cave of wolf doom with anguished tears pouring down her face, Jeremy interacted with the ghost of Alaric Saltzman, and Bonnie absorbed some of that Freaky Friday mojo and conducted a switcheroo between Klaus’ body with Tyler’s. Oh, and Elena drowned and then awoke in transition much to the dismay of Damon and Stefan Salvatore. The best part though? The supernatural drama hasn’t even begun according to recent juicy spoilers for the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries!

Believe it or not, life for Miss Elena and crew takes a turn for the worse on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 1, “Growing Pains”! So what sort of crazy mayhem is going down in the season premiere? Well, let’s just say nosebleeds, dark spells, cage imprisonments, and shirtless woodland hookups are going to resume once again — but with more kinks and evil thrown in for good measure! Now go ahead — don’t be shy — you know you want to roll in a great big pile of sexy, promo pics:


Hang in there, girl! I'll get you out.

What does Stefan hear with his super vamp ears? Whatever it is, he looks hella freaked!

'She glanced this way / I thought I saw / And when we touched she didn't shudder at my paw / No it can't be, I'll just ignore / But then she's never looked at me that way before'

Did Hemione Granger cast a Freezing Charm on these two? Or is it more of a Petrificus Totalus? Because they look absolutely scared to the point where they don't dare move a muscle.

'New and a bit alarming / Who'd have ever thought that this could be?'

Redrum. Redrum. Redrum. Either that's fruit punch or Bex has been a very naughty vamp!

Trapped in a cage with no where to go? Either the bunnies are finally enacting vengeance on Stefan, or some Big Bad's really got it in for him!

Jeremy Gilbert takes a moment to absorb the fact that life in Mystic Falls sucks. And that he's standing in the middle of a prime fire hazard.

Bonnie falls into a deep trance. Jeremy tries to shake her awake, 'Snap out of it, boo!'

Hey there, Tyler...why are you speaking with a British accent? And why do you keep calling me sweetheart and inviting me to high tea?

All the photos are quite disturbing to be honest. It doesn’t appear as though The Vampire Diaries Season 4 is going to be embracing the concept of happy endings. However, truth be told, we’re quite sketched out by that image of Stefan Salvatore locked up in a cage. Who tossed him in there? Why does he look so ravenous? Is he becoming Ripper-fied again? Post your theories in the comments!
