‘The Vampire Diaries’ Spoiler Round-up: Season 4 Scoop For Matt, Bonnie, Meredith and Elena

I have a spoilery round-up of awesome for The Vampire Diaries to share with my vamp loving TVD Family. The scoop is fresh from the lips of Executive Producer Julie Plec and features dish on Matt, Bonnie’s darker side, Meredith’s struggle and Elena’s choice.

Matt ~ Guilt or Love
“There’s going to be a profound sense of guilt, but shadowing that is going be this overwhelming feeling of being loved. Matt hasn’t felt that kind of love since season one or if ever in his life,” Zach Roerig says of Mystic Falls’ resident human/busboy in the beginning of season four after he learns what happened to Elena (you know, the fangs and bloodlust). “Matt’s going to be guilty, but also because he’s been loved so much, earn his life everyday.” Roerig adds that Matt and Caroline share a scene in the premiere that is “not too emotionally charged” and was the actually the first scene shot of season four. “I was honored to start the year off.”

Bonnie and the Dark Side
According to showrunner Julie Plec, she won’t suffer “friendship consequences,” but she will suffer “witch consequences.” Elaborates the EP: “She tapped into something pretty dark to do it, and she’s going to have to tap into that again in the first episode. It’s not going to be a walk in the park for her. She’s going to be struggling with her own darkness inside of her as Elena is starting to adapt to hers.”

Meredith’s Role in Season 4
“Meredith in the beginning is just trying to keep her head above water, realizing that she’s found herself dropped into this supernatural world she never really meant to get involved with,” offers exec producer Julie Plec. “She has a choice to make: Does she want to dive in head first and embrace it? Or does she want to pull back and say, ‘Hey you know what? Why don’t you guys leave me out of it.’ We’ll be seeing a little bit of her in the beginning of the season.”

Elena ~ Fight or Flight
While some of the gang might be looking to help Elena fight her craving for a kill, there’s one person who certainly will not: Damon. Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec says the elder Salvatore is rooting for Mystic Falls’ newest vamp to give in to what he feels is certain to happen. “In his mind, there’s an inevitability to being a vampire that we should just get to and get past. [It's] the equivalent of kicking Elena out of the bird’s nest and letting her fall and see if she can fly.” What do we say gang? Fight or flight?

    I am so excited to see a dark Bonnie! Her storylines always
    seem to fall to the wayside, so it would be nice for her to get her due. I also
    hope that Matt doesn’t suffer too much guilt, the fact that he was able to
    escape and remain human is a feat in itself. This season sounds incredible so
    far, I am so excited for it to return. But, my work schedule at Dish causes me
    to get home late, so I’ll be recording this season with my Hopper. Its 2,000
    hours of recording space will be put to work this fall with so many shows returning.
    It seems like Elena changing has set a chain of events in motion, and I can’t wait
    to see where it leads.
