The Vampire Diaries may not return until October 11 on the CW, but that doesn’t mean fans have to wait until then to see what’s coming up as Elena becomes a vampire and how she reacts to that. In addition to the “Growing Pains” promotional photos that have been released, the CW has now also released a sneak peek.
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 1 “Growing Pains” Clip
In case you forgot, season 3 ended with Rebekah responsible for Matt and Elena going off the bridge. Elena forced Stefan to save Matt first, and she drownedÂ—but she drowned with vampire blood in her. That means she’s now a vampire, and while Stefan, Damon, and Meredith know that, Elena does not. What will happen when she finds out?
The Vampire Diaries season 4 premiere clip from episode 1 “Growing Pains” (below) shows just that. Elena gasps awake in her bed, Stefan and Damon sitting in her room. Stefan explains what happened, and when she asks about Matt, Damon, doing nothing to hide his feelings on the matter, tells her to ask “the hero,” Stefan. While Stefan saved Matt, he couldn’t save her, and Stefan explains about her prior injuries that Meredith gave her Damon’s blood to heal. That blood was in her system when she went in the water. The realization dawns on her, and Elena asks, “Does that mean that IÂ—am I dead?” Her reaction is exactly what you would expect considering she has been clear that she has never wanted this. This isn’t going to be an easy adjustment for her, but this is just the beginning.
What do you think of the first The Vampire Diaries season 4 episode 1 sneak peek from the premiere “Growing Pains”?
