If the first three years of The Vampire Diaries series are any indication, Season 4 is going to chock full of chaos, heartache, and intensity. Not only is Elena on the brink of becoming a vampire but Damon is returning to his bad boy roots, Bonnie is meddling with dark magic, and Klaus has taken over Tyler’s body as well. How’s that for supernatural drama? You can bet that senior year is going to be a hectic time for our favorite Mystic Falls residents. In fact, here’s a new description for Season 4 that will clue you into exactly how much suffering will take place:
Season Four begins with the knowledge that everything is in transition. Elena faces her worst nightmare when she awakens after the accident and finds she must now endure the terrifying transition to become a vampire – or face certain death. Stefan and Damon are torn even further apart over how to help Elena adjust to a life she never wanted, and everyone has to cope with the chaos Alaric created when he outed the vampires and their supporters to the Mystic Falls Council and local church leaders. Despite everything that has happened to them, as Elena and her friends enter into the final stretch of high school before graduation sends them off on different paths, they feel the bond to their home town of Mystic Falls take on a deeper meaning when a new mysterious villain is introduced who seems intent on destroying it.
