‘The Vampire Diaries’ Spoilers: Guilt, Reaction And Retribution In Season 4

2 years ago, by

May 23, 2012


According to The Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec, Elena’s human death will have a heavy impact on Matt and Jeremy when season 4 begins. Their plotting and actions had serious repercussions to Elena’s now uncertain future and will most certainly trigger not only guilt, but reaction and possibly retribution.

“I think that’s the worst tragedy of all is that they plotted together to get her out of town so she wouldn’t have to be part of this life. And now as a result of having been on that bridge at that moment, Matt is basically responsible in his own way for her being the one thing she never wanted to be. He’s going to carry that very heavily. It’s going to take his some time to get past that. And I would say certainly Jeremy, who would never want this for his sister, is going to have a real, real visceral reaction against Rebekah for what [she] did. There might be a little bit of retribution.”

    Of course, Elena will blame neither of them. It’s what she does.

    ok whatever cut the crap and talk about caroline and fake tyler whats going on with them? theres more to this show then elena and  being a vampire

  • NCIS

    Yeah Elena will comfort them and tell them it wasn’t their fault.

     Tyler is possessed by Klaus…at least I think so. I don’t like the storyline between Caro and Tyler; they’ve changed it so much from the book :

  • Emilyjune2010

     That is the only thing I don’t like about the show: Elena is always trying to do the right thing and Stefan is always feeling sorry for whatever just happened…just one endless loop. I like the show for the surprises (things that weren’t in the book)…

    normally I would say that Elena won’t blame that… but the fact that she’s a becoming a vampire know.. means she is going to experience her feelings more deeply.. maybe, if the writers want to give us a more interesting new elena, she is not able to hide that she’s not always honest about not blaming anyone.. maybe we will se new Elena being a little more bitchy because of several reasons.. and then she will have more understanding for katherine and her action.. by the way.. BRING KATHRINE BACK.. I love her :)

    The great thing about The Vampire Diaries is that it has 2 powerful story lines. The sad thing is JP doesn’t seem to know it.  

    Season 4 should focus more on Caroline’s story.

    Focusing on Caroline’s story doesn’t take away from the show but give it equilibrium. It balances it out.

    Caroline, Tyler and Klaus.. I CAN NOT WAIT until that comes to a head.  I just want Klaus to get the girl.  I love Tyler but Klaus is awesome.  I don’t care how many people the vampire drained, I like him now. Love has a grip on him and he is struggling not to kill Tyler.  Tyler is alive only because Klaus would loose Caroline. I really wish that this season could be about this real triangle.

    Damon should hook up with Rebekah because they are so much alike and would be good for each other. And yes, I think he should tell Elena and Stefan to their faces that Rebekah did the right thing by taking Elena out to save her family since, her death was the only way to kill Alaric.  Season 1 and 2 Damon understood this and the collateral damage of poor Matt.

    I think Elijah should intervene when it comes to Jeremy and compel him to forget before he get is little cute self killed. (Jeremy is just too… well you know what I mean) Love me some him.

    I am hoping that Bonnie and Jeremy get back together. Jeremy should just suck it up, apologize, let Bonnie slap the taste out of his mouth and make up. They are such a strong couple together.  However, I think Kol should come back and give Jeremy some competition.  Bonnie would train him to be a good little vampire. He would not be able to resist her little “sister strut” (S2E7) and he’d be as strung out as his brother is with Caroline. 

    Elena chose Stefan and she turned into a vampire.  Done! I am just not interested in the current story line.  Damon is human and needs to return to being the perfect vampire. Stefan is just sorry and hopefully will realize that moderation is key to everything.  Elena is dumb as a box of rocks and is hell bent on killing herself. She acts like she is  trying to “channel” Kelly Bundy from Married With Children minus the sex.  If anybody is to blame for her becoming a vampire it is herself. At the point I couldn’t care less about the main story line.

    Please don’t bring Katherine back. That story is done as well.

    She has no one to blame but herself.

  • Andy Ass

    Human Elena would but how would vampire Elena react?
    Can’t wait!

  • Andy Ass

    Why on every article you have to make the same comment?
    Read at premise, look at all the promotional photos and checked which 3 people have yet to miss an episode.
    If after all that you come back and still don’t know who the show is about then I suggest you watch Sesame Street.

  • Andy Ass

    Yep.
    Can’t wait to see how becoming a vampire changes her.
    WRT Kathrine, I’d like to see her back too but Klaus is still in Mystic falls and as long as he’s there she won’t be back.

  • Andy Ass

    The show is not supposed to balance out.
    There’s 3 main stars and they’ll get the most attention.
    Saying it to be more balanced is like saying Smallville should have given Marta and Jonathon more attention.

  • rk212005

    yes thank  u i agree

  • rk212005

    wow finally someone other then me that wants to see klaus and caroline together and have more then 5 mintues in the sence

    In season four I hope somebody beats the shit out of Rebekah.. I hate that chick…. OR KILLS HER thats even better and omggggg Stefan and Damon are gonna be so mad at her!! Also I hope in season four there  is more Elijah :))))  I wonder what he is  gonna think when he finds out Rebekah was the one who killed Elena and changed her ya know since he like secretly likes/loves her. I JUST CAN’T WAIT!!!!

  • Vics

    @google-d661acdddbea990674151a3ef07d6d6b:disqus Remember that they all think Klaus is dead. The only one that knows he’s not is Bonnie. That’s why I have a feeling we will see Katherine around at the beginning of next season… I hope…

  • Andy Ass

    Yeah it could happen.

  • An

    ok. um so in season 1 and 2 i loved Elena. i thought she was a powerful king nice genuine girl. now in season 3 it like what the heck???!!! i hate her character, i actually like katherine more (and i hate her). Stefan is the only reason why i watch the show…. because lets not kid ourselves we all love ian but damon’s character is a buthole and it’s not realistic that anyone can like him. 
    i also love Caroline and Tyler. but i do not think they should get more attention. they are meant to be minor chacters and they get enough exposure as is.
    Honestly the show has gone down hill….i dread to see the new episodes because i know something will happen that i will hate. The problem is they move wayyyy to fast. It’s only been 3 seasons and look at how much has happened; now if a character dies it’s no longer a surprise nor is it a tragedy.
    anyways… go Elena and Stefan <3 go love go

  • Norulz

    Elena a vampire?Well who’s gonna fall in love with her now?I wonder who she would be like….A Stefan kind of vampire or a Damon kind.
