‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 4 Spoilers: What Elena’s Transition Means for Stefan and Damon

The Vampire Diaries season 3 ended with Elena transitioning after she drowned when she and Matt went off the bridge. She forced Stefan to save Matt first, but unbeknownst to him, she had vampire blood in her. What’s coming up next for the three part of the show’s main love triangle?

Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers

Julie Plec told TV Guide that “the first episode is a lot of people feeling a lot of guilt, a lot of torment and Elena having to manage all of that in the midst of realizing she has a big decision to make.” Stefan saving Matt first and going back for Elena only for it to be too late will “haunt him and infuriate Damon.” However, the good news (at least for Stefan and Elena fans) is that it’s going to “lead Elena to explain even more to Stefan why she chose him because of that.” Plec did tell TVLine that Stefan has no idea she made her choice and he was it.

There’s a lot that needs to be discussed in that first episode, and even though spoilers have already revealed that Elena’s not going to suddenly decide she’d rather be with Damon just because she’s going to remember all the times she compelled him, it is going to mean that the love triangle is not completely over. It’s still around, but there are going to be more layers to it.

Love triangle aside, Elena transitioning is going to affect the brothers’ relationship in The Vampire Diaries season 4. According to Plec, “this could drive a pretty severe wedge between the brothers” because “they’re going to have different points of views”: “It’s going to bring back a lot of the issues about Damon when he came to Mystic Falls and what he expected his vampire life to be. They’re just not going to agree. It’s going to be frustrating for both of them, and even though they’re in it together, they’re coming at it from different sides.”

Some of the best scenes on the show are those between the bothers, and you knew they had to come up with something to keep both brothers in town since they had been planning for the one she didn’t choose to leave. That’s exactly what Elena transitioning did, and it also means there are bound to be some scenes featuring Stefan versus Damon on some issues. What will this mean for the brothers during the season? Will their relationship, which was doing pretty well despite their love for Elena, once again be strained? Will there be “a pretty severe wedge between” Stefan and Damon that they’ll need to get past at some point?
