‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4 spoilers: Is Rebekah the key in episode 4?

We’re only one day away from the start of “The Vampire Diaries” season 4, but as we start to get deep into this season, we are really going to see quite a few interesting things unfold … including quite a few things that you are not even going to see coming.

Want one prime example? Just look at the official synopsis for the fourth episode of the season (which is actually entitled “The Five”), which is going to actually air on November 1:

“Damon (Ian Somerhalder) goes with Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) to visit Whitmore College, where Professor Shane (guest star David Alpay, ‘The Borgias’) is taking over the Occult Studies classes formerly taught by Bonnie’s grandmother. At a fraternity costume party, Damon takes advantage of the wild scene to give Elena a lesson in choosing a victim. Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) attempt to buy Matt’s (Zach Roerig) forgiveness falls flat, but she is intrigued by unexpected news from Klaus (Joseph Morgan). When Stefan (Paul Wesley) questions Klaus about Connor’s (guest star Todd Williams) motives, Klaus reveals a long-ago encounter with a powerful group of vampire hunters, but it’s Rebekah who delivers the information that stuns Stefan.”

What really makes us the most excited about this episode based on what we are hearing already is simply that we are going to see more of an actual story for Rebekah this season. Some of her feelings for Matt were apparent at times during last season, but we never really saw the two of them go to the next level; and after her role in causing the Wickery Bridge crash at the end of last season, we are not sure that we ever really will.

What do you want to see from Rebekah this season? If you want to check out some more of what Ian Somerhalder has to say about Elena’s transition this season, all you have to do is visit the story over at this link.
