‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4 spoilers: What’s next for Paul Wesley’s Stefan

Paul WesleyThanks to the events of “The Vampire Diaries” season 4 thus far, it is fairly safe to say that one character in particular in Stefan Salvatore is at a crossroads. After all, he is now being routinely forced to subject himself to the fact that his brother Damon is now with the woman that he loves in Elena, and he also does not really have any sort of direction for his future. He’s supposed to find the cure … and then what? His best-case scenario could be that he cures himself of his vampirism, and then he just has to die alone.

So what will be coming up for him? According to TV Guide, he is going to be looking for solace with someone, but who? The only clue that we have is the character is female and blonde, so that really only leaves us with two options: Caroline and Rebekah. The former would be the one that would ultimately make the most sense, largely thanks to the fact that she is a friend to Stefan already and could help him get out of this rut. (There is also no indication that this interaction will turn romantic.)

As for Rebekah, is it possible that these two could find some common ground? In a sense, they have both been shunned at times by their very siblings in favor of other people, and they do have a rich history that dated back a full century (at least based on some of the flashbacks that we saw in Chicago during season 3). This would ultimately give Stefan a little bit more of something to do, although there is still admittedly a rather enormous part of us that just wants to see Matt and Rebekah together at the end of the day.
