“Vampire Diaries” was back with a bang on Oct. 11. The hit CW show had fans on the edge of their seats for an hour as Elena (Nina Dobrev) was forced to choose between life and death, and loves Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhadler.)
Elena awakes from a long sleep only to find out that she’s dead, and transitioning into a vampire. All she needs to complete the transformation is to feed on human blood. However, the shocked Elena says she doesn't want to be a vamp, and urges Stefan to get Bonnie to try and find a way to keep her from the transition.
Bonnie, working some very dark magic, agrees, but angers the spirits, who refuse to let her bring Elena back from the dead. Later, Bonnie is forced by Klaus, who’s hiding out in Tyler’s body, to help him get back to his own body. Bonnie, again, works black magic, and her dead grandmother’s spirit pays the price.
Meanwhile, the vampire counsel is on the prowl, and vowing to kill any and all vampires in Mystic Falls. They kidnap Stefan, Rebekah, and Elena, who needs to feed before the day is through, or die. Finally, before she can take no more, Stefan attacks a guard, and Elena drinks his blood, completing the transition into a vampire.
Vampire Elena faces Damon, and tells him she remembers everything he’s ever compelled her to forget, including that he met her before Stefan, and his admission of loving her. However, Elena claims she’s in love with Stefan, and he’s her choice.
Stefan spends Elena’s first vampire sunrise with her, as the couple contemplate what the future will be like in their drastically changed lives.
It looks like season four of the “Vampire Diaries” is set to be the most dramatic season yet, and fans can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
