The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW with new episodes on October 11, and the first episode is appropriately titled "Growing Pains." Elena will be transitioning, and her friends will be by her side to help her. But will someone who's not a friend be there as well?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Premiere "Growing Pains" Photos
The CW has released promotional photos (below) from the premiere, and it's going to be a tough hour for Elena. She does not look good, but what else would you expect from someone transitioning? Will Bonnie be able to help her? At least she's not going to be alone in this. It's no surprise that a cell of some sort becomes involved, but it looks like Stefan's going to end up in it.
Meanwhile, Bonnie's going to be up to some magic, and everyone knows what that bleeding nose means. Jeremy's going to be by her side while she does a spell. What will happen to them this season? Will they grow closer as she works to maybe find a way to help Elena?
Caroline and Klaus/Tyler will be joining Bonnie and Jeremy; could this be when everyone finds out about the spell that Bonnie did? Will Caroline realize it's Klaus in Tyler's body (if he's still in Tyler's body) while they're in the woods? She's unhappy about something, and "Tyler" appears to be smirking. Did they share a moment together only for Caroline to realize after that Tyler's not himself, and then she goes to talk to Bonnie about it?
Finally, there's a photo of Rebekah with what looks like a bloody shirt. She's already not going to be anyone's favorite person this season after her role in what happened to Elena, but will she be doing something else to make people angry?
