Julie PlecJulie Plec, Jose Molina and Arielle Kebbel appeared at a panel at the ATX Television Festival over the weekend, and Julie gave some hints about what might be coming up for season 4. As Jose Molina said,

“We have the road map for next season and before we broke for vacation, I was staring and looking at everything we have planned and this stupid grin spread over my face,” he said. “I was like, ‘They are going to s—.’ Already we have so many moments where people are going to freak.”

We’re not going to quote anything else, in case you don’t want spoilers, but read on to find out what relationships might be rekindled, who might or might not be coming back – and at least one long-awaited character we’ll finally meet.

    I just want Elena to say “thank you”.  I Just want to hear her say it and really mean it just once to Damon.

  • A_softsong

    I was reading on eonline.com and it seems that JP is toying with the idea of making Bonnie a dark magic villain this year. I just want to say on thing to JP and the writers.  
    S T O P! 
    Bonnie is stronger than that. To take care of MF’s Bonnie will have to be a very powerful witch.  Sometimes delving into the dark side is for the greater good.  Bonnie is not the “witch Gloria”. Bonnie is a good with but she is not powerful enough yet. Her mind is strong therefore she will be able to resist the pull of the darkside.  So please just 
    S T O P!  That one is just too easy. Create an Elemental from Chronicles of Riddick or a version of the Triad from Charmed, a being that Bonnie must stop. IDK I am not a writer.. Hell call Michael Narducci.

    People don’t bash Stefan just cos Elena loves and chooses him. Stefan is a flawed character like the rest but gets treated like a saint that can do no wrong, there is always an out for whatever he does. There are too many double standards applied here and that is why lots of people bash him.

  • rachel

     *Standing ovation to this post.. Bravo!!!

  • rachel

    Nah, I doubt they’ll give us that. If it is indeed Damon’s blood, everything will be twisted to make it his fault after all.

  • rachel

    If it is indeed Damon’s blood, the irony is that he saves her from 100 miles and she saves him from Alaric by dying…

  • rachel

    Even if Damon would have done the same, he will never side nor defend anyone that threatens Elena’s life.

  • From Beginningg To End

    Tbh I’m not a really big fan of Damon/Rebekah either. I like them both and want them to be happy, just not with each other. I’d like it if they could be friends though, Damon doesn’t really have any friends anymore.

    After a S3 that was full of arguments and negativity I’d like to have a season four where the non-romantic relationships can develop more, instead of everyone just pairing off. These people have all been through hell together, and they’ve all done their share of bad things so now I think they all need to practice more tolerance for each other. The show used to be more like that.

  • ihatepeople

    YES! An actual thank you for saving me all those times, risking your life, and taking the heat for the bad things you had to do to ensure my safety would be nice. She could follow it up with too bad I threw it all away. Haha. A little regret for never listening to him when he was trying to keep her alive would be nice too but I know that’s just pushing it. :)

  • From Beginningg To End

    I think he’ll be equally pissed off at everyone involved, and probably hit Stefan. He’ll probably not hold a sincere grudge against Stefan as long as he will for everyone else though, because he’s his brother and also because Elena didn’t actually die. No matter who Elena picks, we know that Damon probably hoped she’d eventually turn anyway. I just think that will probably diffuse it a little bit, he can only really be mad that Stefan let her die not knowing that would happen.

    Everyone will probably hold a grudge against Rebekah for a fair amount of time, based on what I’ve read in interviews. Damon doesn’t have any particular ties to Rebekah in the first place so I can’t really see him being too quick to even have anything to do with her.

  • ihatepeople

    I know right? Someone will say shame on you for getting “blood jacked”. LOL

  • From Beginningg To End

    Omg that’d be aweful. If there were ever a time to do that they could do it in the final season too because they don’t need to worry about everyone abandoning the show when the favorite dies haha.

  • From Beginningg To End

    Matt and Caroline together again would be silly- if Klaus didn’t kill him Tyler might want to (jk). Also Matt was already just kind of starting to be into Elena again, and now they want him to revisit feelings with Caroline? Is he lonely or what?

  • ihatepeople

    Even if Damon would’ve preferred Elena to turn he knew she didn’t want to. All that effort Damon put in to keep her safe was wasted. He got blamed for having to turn Abby so Elena could live. Yes, she’s still alive sort of which he’ll be happy about but I don’t see him letting Stefan off the hook quickly. I mean it took nearly a century to forgive him for things he’s done that affected Damon. What makes it worse is that Damon told him he’d be the one to get her killed and he was.

  • From Beginningg To End

    I don’t think what happened will undo all the team Salvatore bonding we got in S3. Yes, Damon will be really mad that Elena was for all intensive purposes left to die, and did die, and only by a miracle had vampire blood in her. Ultimately though, she’s still around and like I said somewhere above, no matter who she chose, I think he’s always hoped/figured she’d eventually turn to be with Stefan anyway. It’s like when he fed her vampire blood near the end of S2, she was with Stefan then, but he still didn’t want her to be gone. He’s always settled for just having her in his life so I don’t think he’ll hate the fact that she’s a vampire now enough to erase the bond him and Stefan have again.

    Of course, whether or not he’ll trust Stefan with her safety ever again is another matter entirely :p

  • From Beginningg To End

    I agree, Damon doesn’t give away support or forgiveness easily and to just anyone. Him and Rebekah have hooked up and hung out a bit, and he was using her when that happened. So he’s not going to suddenly be like, “well I can kind of see where she’s coming from…”. Damon isn’t really an empathetic kind of guy.

  • From Beginningg To End

    I want a two-way hug. I think that is a very small wish….I don’t know why they won’t give it to me….:(

  • From Beginningg To End

     Oooh I like that!

  • From Beginningg To End

     That’s just so done already, on Buffy and on Secret Circle. If they want to have a dark witch they should introduce Tatia as having dark magic after selling her soul or something. That’d be cool.

  • A_softsong

    Season 3 Episode 10 – He chastises Stefan for preventing him from killing Klaus with the white oak stake,saving his life. Damon also tells Stefan that he (Damon) is cut throat and devious when on a mission.  Damon understand Rebekah and once he calms down, he will see that there is nothing to forgive.  Bex stood on the bridge but ulitimately Stefan could have saved both Elena and Matt. Bex was angry and standing on a bridge but she did not kill either one of them.

  • ihatepeople

    That’s exactly why I could see it happening then. They’d keep Elena with Stefan all the way to the end while continuing to string Damon along. They could kill Stefan off like maybe one or two episodes before series end then Elena could go to Damon without ruining her “epic” love for Stefan. Then as I mentioned in staying with the theme of Damon always losing they’d kill him off just after she finally gives in so he never really ends up with what he wanted. Does that sound about right? LOL.

  • ihatepeople

    You’re right he’d rather have her around in any form even if he doesn’t have her but the fact that he trusted Stefan would keep her safe but didn’t will be what he holds resentment for. I mean again Stefan didn’t listen to him and something bad happened just like when he didn’t listen about not cluing their father in about Katherine being a vampire. They just got lucky so to speak this time because she had vampire blood in her. Now she can torment them for eternity just like Katherine. Hahaha. At some point I’m sure the brothers will make up but that “trust” that team Salvatore had just built up has taken a huge blow and won’t be forgiven easily. I find it ironic that in season 1 Stefan told Elena that everytime he let’s Damon back into his life and trusts him he regrets it. Um I’m thinking it’s actually the other way around.

  • Georgia_Peach

     Damon is going to be very pissed off at Stefan over this one.  I’m not sure how the two brothers will handle this one, but I am sure they both will be completely heartbroken over the whole turn of events.

    Truthfully, the last thing on Damon’s mind will be getting involved in a romantic relationship with anyone.  As usual, the only person he will be focusing on is Elena and how he can help her through all of this. Elena dying and her transition into a vampire will impact everyone that loves her in different ways. 

    As for Rebekah, I adore her.  I could only hope that somehow Damon and Rebekah will actually have their moment in time together and that it would actually last for a while. Rebekah wanting to protect herself and her brothers by taking out the threat that could kill them is an action each and every one of the people that want to judge her for it would do themselves to protect the people they love.  None of them have the right to judge her so harshly.  None of them should throw the first stone.

  • A_softsong

    Damon’s no fool. She chose Stefan and he will honor that. He will keep the relationship between him and Stefan intact. But he will take a beat, hopefully.

  • ihatepeople

    In all honesty neither of them should get involved with Elena romantically while she is dealing with becoming a vampire and she shouldn’t want to either. The focus should be on helping her adjust.

  • Georgia_Peach

    Elena and Stefan are already involved romantically so I see no reason why that should change. Elena will need all the love and support Stefan can give her.  Stefan honors her “free will” to make her own decisions and by her choice he allowed her to drown.  I’m sure Elena will defend him to the end for that one.  Elena will be going through her transition to become a vampire, which will be very traumatic for her.   Of course Stefan will probably be full of guilt …. so there is that too… While Elena is trying to lean on Stefan for support, apparently Stefan will be leaning on Caroline for his support.  

    I’m guessing Damon will be the one that is actually focused on helping Elena and he will be there to get the job done providing she will let him.   Elena can lean on Damon all she wants and he will be her rock, steadfast and sturdy as usual. 

  • ihatepeople

    Trust me I’m well aware there will be the “pookie bear” stuff between Stefan and Elena. Hell she’ll probably have to support him in his guilt as well as defend him. I just think they should all focus on her adjustment before any relationship stuff. We all know Caroline will be doing the rah rah Stefan cheer. I mean he helped her transition so it’s a given. She just can be rather pushy.

    As for Damon, of course he’ll help knowing all the while he’ll always be on the outside taking the heat for whatever necessary things need to be done. Too bad people are too busy seeing the bad in him to notice his sacrifice of his own happiness for the people he loves. Cetrainly doesn’t sound like he’ll ever here those 3 little words from the people in his life. Once he’s fixed her, that is if she listens, she’ll be back to “sorry about your feelings but I’m going back over here now. Bye bye.” Now that she is a vampire this will go on for eternity because we know he doesn’t let go of the people he loves no matter how much he gets hurt.

  • ihatepeople

    They won’t though. They’ll expect him to fix it as always. It is rather selfish. Being the guy that he is though he’ll help even if it he gets hurt in the process. It’s very hard watching him have nothing for himself.

  • ihatepeople

    Damon does deserve something for himself. It’s painful to watch him not have it. I think Bex could’ve been a choice though not really a love match due to mutual trust isses but they could’ve had some fun. I think the writers ruined that possibility when they had her stand on the bridge blocking them. Sure Damon would probably have done the same to protect his family but ultimately he loves Elena (to his own detriment) so I don’t see getting involved again with Bex given what’s happened as an option. They should bring in a new hot vamp for him.

    Regarding your 2nd paragraph, we’re already being set up for round 4 of the non-existant triangle. It’s aparent in the interview comment about Damon continuing to evolve and “Elena’s feelings for him evolving”. We’ll be back in the circle to nowhere before long. They just think it will fool us into thinking things will change because she turned but the end result will be the same with “always Stefan”. They don’t want to seem to break the theme of Damon never being good enough for any kind of happiness. We’ll be taken right along with him.

  • From Beginning To End

    Oh I definitely agree that he’ll be really mad, I just don’t think it’s going to put them back at square one.

  • ihatepeople

    Maybe not but I doubt they’ll be the “team” they’d become either. That will take some time.

  • Georgia_Peach

    There is no reason at all the writer’s pen could not put Damon and Rebekah together as a couple and make it believable.   Both characters have the ability to love passionately and deeply.   At this point I would enjoy Damon and Rebekah together. 

    There are three more season ahead so anything can happen before the series finale. 

  • Ariel Lopez81

    I’m guessing vampire speed doesn’t apply to swimming lol just kidding :P but I totally agree with you…that part bugged me I mean your a vampire who can jump to the top of a Ferris wheel, don’t tell me you can’t save two people from drowning.

  • Ariel Lopez81

    Question: Am I the only one who saw Meredith’s wound/flesh move whenever Ric went “Psycho Alter ego” on her and cut her? I really want to know if she’ll be a new supernatural being….what it would be I have no earthly clue.

  • ihatepeople

    Sure anything is possible down the road. Depends if she’s still alive 3 seasons from now. Presently though, beyond say taking pity on her, I’d say she has about as much chance of getting romantically involved with Damon as he has of Elena dumping Stefan for him. He definitely needs someone for himself. I just think it’ll have to be someone new and DEFINITELY not a mediocre character like Meredith. Gag.

  • A_softsong

    Which episode? I didn’t see it.

  • Georgia_Peach

     When I said “down the road” with three more seasons left and by the series finale, I was talking about Damon and Elena finally hooking up….as if that would actually ever happen.  I see no reason to bring in a new vampire as a love interest for Damon when Rebekah is already there. The chemistry and the story is already in place to build on. The writers could make it work.

     

  • ihatepeople

    Ah I see. Yeah if DE actually do hook it up it will be just before they kill him off given their love of torturing him. He and Bex do have hot chemistry but again we know how much they like to keep him emotionally and physically tormented. Same goes for Bex for that matter. Given that and now making her unwelcome by all I don’t see it happening anytime soon if at all. I’d be fine with it for a while but if it does get written that way it should be later in the season after things cool off. For all we know Jeremy might try using that stake Damon has on her.

  • Georgia_Peach

     I am really hoping the whole “kill Klaus, kill the Originals, is over.  The Originals and Salvatores need to put their animosity aside and join forces against the next “threat” that will come to Mystic Falls.  Maybe a Damon/Rebekah romance would be a step in the right direction.  At the very least it would be something new.  I don’t want to keep going in circles with the storyline being second verse same as the first. 

  • ihatepeople

    Everyone is going to need to team up now that Ric outed them all to the council. I expect to see a lynch mob unless of course they decide to just blow that part of the finale off next season. Since Damon was on the council I think he needs to help get it under control. That will give him something else to focus on while the epic couple rekindle things. They probably won’t take Damon’s advice on the transition thing until everything else has failed then they’ll expect him to fix it.

    As for the circle to nowhere, they think they’re changing it up because Elena has turned. We’re already being lead that way by Elena’s evolving feelings comment. All that this will do is create a little strife between everyone. Damon and his fans will be lead to think something will actually happen for a change only to have it used to prove that Stefan and Elena found their way back to each other for the umpteenth time against the odds. No thank you. Let Damon work on the council issue and have some hot vamp sex. He needs a break from the emotional drama. Unfortunately I don’t think we’ll get our way though. Do we ever?

  • kali995

    me too they have never said a word about her did she die

  • Jeslyn

    It would be a shame to end the bloodline. It would be nice to find out that Elena has not only turned, but is also pregnant. The child will not be a vampire, but a human. The real clincher, who is the father, Damon or Stefan?
