‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 4 Spoilers: Friendships, Relationships and Family

The Vampire Diaries season 3 ended on a few cliffhangers, leaving much to be resolved in season 4. Slowly, more and more teases are coming out about what to expect, and the latest is from the ATX Television Festival panel over the weekend.

Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers

TV Guide has some scoop about a variety of aspects about the show, including friendships, relationships, and family. One of the best friendships that have developed on the show has to be that between Stefan and Caroline, and Julie Plec called her his “future [best friend] Lexi.” Elena aside, everyone’s going to be going through a tough time with her transitioning, and that includes Stefan. He knows that this is something Elena never wanted—she told him as much—but it’s something he can’t stop. She forced him to save Matt first, but that doesn’t mean he’s not going to feel guilty over that, and there are likely to be some who will turn on him for doing that. Caroline’s not going to be one of them, as Plec revealed, “Caroline is an acolyte of the Stefan school of sobriety so to speak, so she’s going to be all, ‘I’m with you buddy, I’m on your team’ as they try to help Elena.” It’s been enjoyable to see scenes between them so far, and it’s good news that that’s going to continue in season 4.

So what else is coming up for Caroline in The Vampire Diaries season 4? Plec did tease, “I think Caroline and Matt [Zach Roerig], in the long run of the series, will have another moment.” Matt has defied all logic and somehow survived—remaining human—three seasons so far. Matt’s obviously going to be dealing with his own emotions over Elena’s transition, and he’s another one whom Caroline could be there for. With Klaus currently in Tyler’s body, it does give them the chance to explore Caroline and Matt a bit more—whether that’s just friendship, looking back at what they had, or even looking forward to the future a bit. While Caroline does love Tyler, things are definitely different in Mystic Falls right now, and it’s still uncertain how long Klaus will be in his body. Depending on how long that lasts, that could give them a chance to explore other relationships.

The fourth season will also feature the introduction of a new character, Bonnie’s father. As Plec put it, “It’s time!” She went on to say, “This year is a big year of transitions. It’s the end of senior year, and there’s a rich home life for everybody we’re going to explore.” At the end of senior year is graduation and then post-graduation plans. Will Bonnie’s father show up to talk to her about what she’s planning to do in the future? Just how much about Mystic Falls and everyone Bonnie knows will he find out about? How involved will he get with everything that’s really going on in her life?
