The Vampire Diaries season 4 may have to address Elena becoming a vampire and Klaus in Tyler’s body, but there is also the matter of the love triangles of the show. How will those continue to be part of the CW drama?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers
TVLine talked to executive producer Julie Plec about what’s coming up for all the relationships in the new season. Two love triangles will continueÂ—Damon, Elena, and Stefan, and Tyler, Caroline, and KlausÂ—while a new one may developÂ—Bonnie, Jeremy, and April. So how will recent events affect these relationships?
Things are going to be different for the Stefan-Elena-Damon love triangle now that she’s a vampire, and Plec explained, “This circumstance, which is pretty horrific, is going to make them all care about each other even more deeply and argue even more intensely and fracture even more greatly and love as deeply as possible.” It’s a way to almost reboot the love triangle after Elena chose Stefan at the end of last season before everything went down. Yes, Elena is going to be remembering those times Damon compelled her, including when he told her he loved her, but Plec said that she’s not going to change her mind. That doesn’t mean that it doesn’t give her something to think about and that does “imbed itself in her brain a little bit.” So it seems like Elena’s going to be with StefanÂ—at least to begin the seasonÂ—while Damon returns to being the Damon fans will recognize from the first season. Of course, with Elena becoming a vampire and having to adapt, this could mean some changes in Elena as well, changes that could lead her to Damon at some point. Anything can happen now that Elena’s a vampire and she has to adjust to this life she never wanted.
Another love triangle that will continue in The Vampire Diaries season 4 is that between Tyler, Caroline, and Klaus. Klaus is currently in Tyler’s body, and it has already been teased “clothes will fly when Tyler and Caroline reunite,” but it has yet to be revealed it that’s a reunion between Tyler and Caroline or Klaus still in Tyler’s body pretending to be Tyler and Caroline. All Plec would tease was “I definitely think that Klaus is going to unwittingly provide a little bit of mistaken identity hijinks in the first episode back.” That said, Plec also said that “Tyler and Caroline have a really solid bond, a really solid relationship,” so it sounds like they’ll get some happiness together at some point once Tyler’s back in control of his body and Klaus is back in his. However that clothes-flying reunion goes, the love triangle there is far from over, which means more good scenes between Caroline and Tyler, Caroline and Klaus, and Klaus and Tyler. How can that not be a good thing?
The final love triangle that Plec addressed is one that could develop with the new character of April, who knew Jeremy and Elena when they were younger. Plec explained that they don’t have plans for her to be romantically linked to anyone, “but [they're] certainly open to seeing where the chemistry flies.” So it is possible that after seeing each other again, something could spark between Jeremy and April. Speaking of Jeremy, things are far from over between him and Bonnie. Plec said they “are very bonded to each other. In spite of having found a piece of closure in their relationship, they will continue to be drawn to each other emotionally. Whether it’s romantically or not, I can’t really say.” With graduation coming up and the storyline involving her magic and the witches, Bonnie could be reevaluating things in her life, including her relationship with Jeremy. Will they get back together before the end of the school year, or will they at least have a conversation about their relationship that provides closure of some sort?
