Season 4 of “The Vampire Diaries” is creeping ever closer, and now we have some more details from the October 11 premiere that are certainly worthy of getting excited about — the official synopsis. The episode is entitled “Growing Pains,” and is going to be focused very much on a subject that you would expect to play a major role — Elena’s transition from a human into a vampire.
If you have been following some of our spoilers for the past few months, we admit that there’s not much here that you haven’t already heard — though it is nice to see that it will all start to unfold within the span of one episode:
“Elena will begin to transition into a vampire, during which she will no doubt endure both physical and emotional changes. And even though she chose Stefan over Damon, once memories from previous compulsion flood back, she’ll have even more to be confused about.”
As for those memories that were wiped from her mind, they include Damon’s romantic confession — along with the reveal that he was actually the first one of the Salvatore brothers that she met in Mystic Falls. For the Salvatores, the goal early on is going to be trying to find a way to make her fully human again, but it doesn’t really look at the moment like this is going to be possible. After all, wouldn’t a vampire have figured it out before now? It’s also curious that none of the supporting characters for the show — including Tyler, who has Klaus currently trapped inside of his body — are mentioned here at all.
