The Vampire Diaries season 3 ended with Elena transitioning into a vampire, and that's what fans are going to get to see when season 4 begins. But how will Elena react to this big change in her life?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers
TVLine talked to Nina Dobrev about what happened to her character and how Elena will deal with becoming a vampire. Dobrev did admit she was surprised since she saw this happening a couple of seasons later on the show. According to Dobrev, "I think she's going to freak out. I think Elena's not going to be happy about it because she didn't even know. She kind of accepted death and told Stefan to save Matt, not herself." Instead, Elena is waking up to a whole new world.
While she will have her friends by her side to help her through this, that's not going to change the fact that she never wanted to become a vampire, which she has said before. She's never been someone who wasn't sure if she could see this at some point for her. She wanted a mortal life, and now, that's been taken from her (bar the possibility of them maybe finding a spell at some point). This is her life now, and while she will have to get used to it eventually, you can't blame her for freaking out to begin with. Her reaction to the change could lead to some unfriendly feelings towards Meredith in The Vampire Diaries season 4, since she did give her the vampire blood, but considering she did it to save her, Meredith does have a defense. Besides, it's not like the doctor knew what would be coming up (though in their lives and in that town, it's not too surprising).
Dobrev also talked about Elena choosing between the Salvatore brothers and said, "I don't know if there is a right or wrong choice. I think she definitely tested the waters and made an educated decision, and I respect the decision." As she added, "Anything can change at any moment." That is definitely true on this show, especially since she'll be remembering things she didn't remember before now that she's a vampire. Will the times Damon compelled her and how they react to her transition factor into her decision in the future about the brothers?
Finally, Nina Dobrev talked about how she'll play her characters moving forward. She's going to work on "making them different, making my two characters different because they're both vampires now. So I'm going to try and see how I'm going to make them both likeable and both kick-ass characters." Katherine may not be around in Mystic Falls right now, and it's unclear if or when that will change (Klaus is still alive), but you have to imagine at some point, she'll come back. When she does, fans will hopefully get to see some scenes with her and vampire Elena to get to see how she reacts to the change in the doppelgÃ¤nger.
