‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 4 Spoilers: How Elena Deals With the Change

The Vampire Diaries season 3 ended with Elena drowning and coming back to life, all thanks to the vampire blood Meredith gave her when she came in earlier with a cerebral hemorrhage. One thing the show has established is that she didn’t want to become a vampire. So how is she going to deal with this?

Julie Plec talked to TVLine about what’s coming up, and she did say “they’re going to try to pull out all the stops to try to prevent it when we come back, but I think the writing is on the wall as far as her journey.” While becoming a vampire is going to mean that she’s going to remember all those times Damon compelled her, which will make things once again complicated for the love triangle, that’s not all that’s going to be difficult for her.

According to Plec, “It’s going to affect her in a lot of ways. It changes everything for her. It’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be a struggle. It’s going to illuminate a lot of things about who she is, and it’s going to screw with her head and her emotions. It’s going to be tough.” She’s going to have plenty of people at her side to help her through this, but at the same time, it is something she’s going to be going through. She had never planned for this to be her life, but now it is, unless they can find a way to change that. The question does remain though about how much of The Vampire Diaries season 4 will be about Elena dealing with this transition before she can fully accept it.

Plec added, “But the beauty of Elena is now we’ll get to see her try to rise above it and be a champion in spite of this. We’ll see how hard that is and how long it takes her to become a functioning vampire, if at all.” What should be interesting to see in terms of how she handles it and perhaps becomes “a functioning vampire” is whether or not she knew she had the vampire blood in her. If she did, she may be better prepared for what’s coming. She would’ve known that this would be the outcome. If not, she never expected to wake up with her entire life having changed. Still, it sounds like she’s going to try to handle it the best she can, and it will probably help to know that because of her actions, Matt survived.
