The Vampire Diaries season 4 may not be airing episode 16, “Bring It On,” until March 14, but the CW has released the official episode description teasing what’s to come next for Elena now that her humanity is off.
“THE NEW NORMAL Â— Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new outlook has everyone concerned, leading Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to agree that going back to the normal routine of high school would be the best thing for her. Caroline (Candice Accola) is pleasantly surprised when Elena decides to rejoin the cheerleading squad, but her pleasure turns to shock when Elena’s behavior proves dangerous. Not giving up on their search for the cure, Damon and Rebekah (Claire Holt) work together until his unwanted advice catches her off-guard. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) tries to use Hayley (Guest star Phoebe Tonkin) to get the information he’s after and makes an intriguing discovery in the process. Meanwhile, a bored Elena throws a wild party and gets into an ugly fight.”
If there’s one thing that has remained constant, it’s that things can never be normal when school is involved. Considering they barely attend classes as it is, why would an attempt to get back to normal include going back to school? That in itself just opens them up for something going wrong, and really, they should expect Elena to not be acting like she should (the promo shows that she apparently begins feeding on the cheerleading competition). And then of course, as if things couldn’t get worse, adding a party in Mystic Falls to the mix is just asking for even more troubleÂ—especially when the person throwing it is Elena.
And it’s not like the others don’t have enough to deal with as it is, with Katherine out there with the cure, Klaus still very much an issue (especially for Tyler at the moment), and the matter of Shane and Silas that was introduced at the end of The Vampire Diaries episode 415, “Stand By Me.” Though you do have to wonder if the others are better off with an Elena with her humanity turned off versus what she would be like otherwise after losing her brother. And with Hayley coming back into the picture, things could be getting even more complicated in the future. The last thing they need is to be distracted in any way, but which Elena would be more distractingÂ—an Elena in pain like she was or an Elena whom they have to keep an eye on to keep her from going too far?
