‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4 spoilers: New photo shows stunned Elena

Elena’s journey to becoming a full-fledged vampire is going to be a difficult one on “The Vampire Diaries,” and the photo to the left certainly suggests that this is not going to be an easy transition fo her to make.

Really, we don’t have much of an idea where Elena is here, or what sort of frame of mind she is out save from looking exhausted and rather stunned. The character began her transformation at the end of last season, when she died while carrying vampire blood within her after what happened with the car accident. Now we arrive at the inevitable adjustment period, where Elena has to figure out not only how to live as a vampire, but also how it will impact some of the personal relationships that she already has. Before her transformation, she appeared to be committed to Stefan as the person that she wanted to be with for the rest of her life — but now the phrase “rest of her life” has surely changed, as has the knowledge that she has about one of her other past suitors in Damon. Ian Somerhalder’s character had glamoured her on more than one occasion to forget about a few details here and there concerning their past together, but as soon as the transformation is complete these thoughts are going to rush back into her brain.

Where do you think that Elena is in this photo? We want to hear some of your theories below! The new season of “The Vampire Diaries” kicks off on The CW on Thursday, October 11 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.┬áIf you want to check out some more scoop when it comes to Bonnie and Jeremy on this upcoming season, be sure and head on over to this link.
