When The Vampire Diaries returns October 11th, the whole supernatural gang will be on hand to help Elena through her transition. However, Stefan will share a very special moment with his love and present her with an extraordinary gift.
Once the transition starts, there's no turning back. Fortunately, she's got a ton of friends who have already been through it themselves! In the season premiere, Stefan will have a heartfelt chat with Elena about her new strengths and weaknesses. He'll also present her with her first daylight ring — made especially for her by Bonnie.
