The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW on October 11 with its fourth season, “Growing Pains.” Elena will be transitioning, but can anything stop that from happening? Her friends will sure be trying to find a way.

Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 1 “Growing Pains” Promo

Elena has never wanted to be a vampire, and she’s never been quiet about that. However, that’s what’s coming, unless someone—Bonnie—can find a way to stop it. Does the witch have any ideas? Will she be able to find a way to help her friends? What’s going to be going on with Caroline and Tyler/Klaus? What’s the deal with some of these new characters coming to the series? That’s all teased in the new preview out.

The new The Vampire Diaries season 4 promo (below) begins with a quick look at how season 3 ended and Elena died. Elena asks, “Am I dead?” and realizes what has happened. They have one day to figure out a way to fix it, but Damon argues, “There is no way out of it. You feed or you die.” Elena is going to be a vampire this season, but Bonnie is determined to find some way around it—no matter what that might mean for herself and what kind of power she might have to use for that.

The preview also shows that Elena and Jeremy will have some time together that day as they prepare for the inevitable. Meanwhile, it looks like fans of two couples—Elena and Stefan, and Caroline and likely Klaus—will have something to look forward to. Stefan will be by Elena’s side no matter what, and Caroline’s having fun with who might very well be Klaus still in Tyler’s body while all this drama is going down.

Also coming up in this episode, as previously teased by spoilers, is the character of Pastor Young, who won’t be alive for too long since his daughter comes to town for his funeral in the second episode. The Sheriff warns him, “You have no idea what you’re up against,” and a later shot shows Elena finding him and his men surrounding Stefan downstairs. Is it possible that bloodlust could take over and she kills Pastor Young to save Stefan?
