TV Guide gives us some inside scoop on what to expect in season four of The Vampire Diaries.

Stefan will lean on Caroline during Elena’s transition: “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 [Nina Dobrev],” Plec said. “I remember saying in Episode 203 when Stefan takes Caroline under his wing that the two of them and their chemistry was so delightful… It’s such a pleasure to watch.”

Season 4 will make viewers scream: Writer Jose Molina gave a most agonizing tease. “We have the road map for next season and before we broke for vacation, I was staring and looking at everything we have planned and this stupid grin spread over my face,” he said. “I was like, ‘They are going to shit.’ Already we have so many moments where people are going to freak.” 

Damon’s evolution will continue: After re-watching a scene from the Season 1 episode “162 Candles,” which screened at the festival, Plec noted that Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has evolved in the two seasons since. “This is a reminder that Damon is a character that started in a very dark place, but with a lot of love and emotion brewing under him,” Plec said. “All of our characters, including his own brother, had to witness his evolution as a person and he has done some really extraordinarily sh—y things, but he has also done them in the name of love, pain, abandonment, self-preservation, survival and family. He’s going to keep evolving and Elena’s feelings for him are going to continue to evolve.”

We cannot wait!
