The Vampire Diaries season 4 premieres next week with "Growing Pains," and Matt's not going to have it easy after Elena died when she forced Stefan to save him first. So what comes next for a character who has remained human despite everything?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers
According to Hollywood Crush, Zach Roerig has teased that Elena and Matt's friendship is going to deepen: "The thing about Matt and Elena's friendship is that it's kind of never been really seen on screen except for last year with the flashbacks. ... But now, the fact that Elena gave up her life for Matt; and then Matt allowing Elena to feed from him: it's just a like a sacrifice on both ends on an extreme level that brings them really close together." It's no surprise that Matt lets Elena feed from him considering all the blame coming his way about the situation she's in. After all, Damon's not going to make Matt's life easy. Then there is the fact that logically, if Elena is going to feed from someone she knows, there aren't exactly many humans left in her life.
But that's not all that's coming up for Matt and Elena, as he's going to take her to the Mystic Falls pageant, which does make you wonder about the state of Elena's relationship with Stefan (and what's going on between Elena and Damon by then). There's also the matter of the pageant being a big town event, and everyone knows what that means on this show. Could Elena be protecting Matt at the pageant in Vampire Diaries season 4?
This season will also be introducing a new vampire hunter, Connor (Todd Williams), and Roerig previewed that "he's definitely a force to be reckoned with" and there is an upcoming "altercation" between Matt and Connor: "Previously Matt has been divided on whether he's with vampires or against vampires. But with Elena being a vampire, he's now on the opposite side of the law." Will Matt end up in the crossfire siding with vampires because of Elena? Will Connor try to get to Elena using Matt? You just have to hope Matt makes it to graduation, but considering he's lasted this long and now with Elena protecting him as a vampire, it seems (hopefully) a safe bet he will.
