It was a glorious visit to Mystic Falls last night, wasn’t it? Well, at least it was for viewers — definitely not for all our beloved supernatural residents who found themselves being hunted down by Pastor Young and his deputy cronies. Yep, that’s right. The Founders Council members dethroned Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Lockwood and usurped their power…and tried to take down Rebekah, Caroline, Stefan, and fresh baby vamp Elena in the process.
Crazy, right? Well, that’s a true understatement right there. All the twists that took place on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere provoked some seriously strong reactions from fans worldwide, and we have documentation of some of the most entertaining ones below!
