The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale ended with something that wasn't too shocking once you put the pieces together. Now it opens up things for where season 4 will go. What will happen now that Elena's life has completely changed?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers
Julie Plec did tell Entertainment Weekly, "there will be a discussion to be had about [Elena transitioning] at the beginning," but there doesn't seem to be any way that she decides against it. Instead, it's going to be time to look forward to what this means for Elena. Next season is also going to address whether or not Elena knew she had vampire blood in her. If she did or if she didn't, would that have made a difference as to whether or not she would've forced Stefan to take Matt from the car first? If she didn't, Meredith is probably going to have at least two very angry vampires to answer to.
The good news is that it looks like Matt will be around in season 4, as Plec said, "I think for Matt to not survive that after everything would be just too damn tragic." However, he's still just human, and really, the way things are going, once again, you're going to be worried about whether or not he's going to make it through the season alive.
Everyone was looking forward to Elena's decision in The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale and what that would mean for season 4. Originally, the brothers had decided that whomever she didn't choose would leave town. Now that Elena's transitioning, will that still be the case? Will they both stick around to help her out, or will Damon leave since she did choose Stefan?
Plec did bring up the fact that "when you die and are in transition, your memories start to come back. So, there's some new information that will be introduced to Elena in the first episode of next season." That means Elena's going to remember all those times Damon compelled her. Uh-oh, that could make things very complicated. After all, the season finale revealed another of those times. While it's "gonna get under her skin and embed itself into her even more" and "cause complications with Stefan," "she's committed to Stefan. She loves Stefan." That means that "we'll get to actually see them be together for a little while." What will it mean for their relationship that she's a vampire? Since she no longer now just has a human lifetime, what will that mean for their future? It is something that could obviously really complicate things with the brothers. After all, it's hard to say a love triangle is completely over when there's an unlimited amount of time on their hands.
Plec did say, "Elena as a character will continue to evolve and change, as will our boys, as will their feelings for each other and for her." This is certainly setting up for an intriguing season 4, especially that first episode. Elena's going to have enough to deal with in general, not to mention her feelings for Stefan and Damon. While Plec did say that Stefan and Elena will "be together for a little while," that could always change before the season's over (it could even change before the middle of the season), and it should be fun to see how each brother reacts to what happened.
