‘Growing Pains” Stills From Episode 1, Season 4 Of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ [PHOTOS]

Too Hot For TV
The super sexy trio of 'The Vampire Diaries' cover EW.
Just four weeks remain until The Vampire Diaries returns! Little teasers, including promo videos and pictures have been gracing our screens for the last week or two. Interviews with beloved cast members are being released, giving us an idea of what’s to come.

It’s safe to say one of our favorite original vampires, Elijah Mikaelson, played by Daniel Gillies will definitely be reappearing. He is featured in promo pictures and has been interviewed about season four. No more worrying, folks!

Episode one is titled, “Growing Pains”. I guess fangs puncturing your gums would hurt. Elena wants to avoid her transition, so, as usual, everyone is trying to find a cure for her. Damon seems to be the only one thinking logically. No one else got to reverse their death. It’s really a simple concept: you feed or you die. Bonnie and Stefan appear to be trying to figure out a way to help the (almost) baby vampire. But at what cost?

As usual, Bonnie is sacrificing herself and her health to help out the doppelganger. When your nosebleeds return, that’s kind of a sign that you should stop whatever you’re doing. If there is actually a spell to make a vampire turn into a human, wouldn’t you need a super powerful witch (think Esther) to complete it? Will the Original Witch be reappearing? Hmm…

What about the picture of Rebekah, also known as Claire Holt? Has reality finally set in? Maybe her adrenaline rush has finally stopped and she’s realizing her brother is gone and she killed his little human blood bag. Elena herself has said (in reference to her parents’ car crash), “Our actions are what set things in motion. But we have to live with that.” Does that mean she’ll be forgiving when it comes to Rebekah?

I don’t know about you, but between these stills and the other teasers, I can’t wait to see what’s to come in season four!
