Elena Gilbert never wanted to become a vampire but alas her worst fear has become a reality. She’s in transition and freaking out over her cravings for human blood. (You can bet that her stress level is at an all-time high. In recent sneak peek images from “Memorial,” she looks eerily pallid and malnourished.) Plus, to add to the immense pile of worries, a vicious new hunter drops by town with very bad intentions. So how are our beloved Mystic Falls residents going to handle all the threats and danger? And is Elena going to quickly spiral out of control as her bloodlust seizes her senses? Dive into the official synopsis for Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 2 below for the fresh scoop:
A NEW DANGER COMES TO TOWN — Elena (Nina Dobrev) tries to cope with the extreme highs and lows that are part of becoming a vampire, and Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) almost come to blows while arguing about what is best for her. Damon decides to help Elena in his own way and asks her not to tell Stefan. A stranger, Connor Jordan (guest star Todd Williams, “Chicago Code”), arrives in town and begins questioning Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Lockwood. Connor’s actions quickly convince Stefan that they are dealing with a dangerous vampire hunter. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) are surprised to see a girl they used to know, April, (guest star Grace Phipps, “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”), has returned to town and is enrolling at Mystic Falls High. At a town gathering, Elena comes close to losing control until Caroline steps in to help her. Finally, Damon confides his feelings to an unexpected friend. Kat Graham and Michael Trevino also star. Rob Hardy directed the episode written by Jose Molina & Julie Plec (#402).
Who do you think Damon will confide his feelings to? Will it be Bonnie perhaps? Or Matt? Or someone completely surprising? Post your guesses in the comments!
