Elena vampire season 4

Kevin Williamson gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on Elena’s new life. Watch our exclusive video interview!

The third season finale of The Vampire Diaries was a mind screw from beginning to end, and creator Kevin Williamson promises it’s only going to get crazier from here. “It’s not going to be easy,” he told HollywoodLife.com about Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new life as a vampire when we caught up with him June 14 at the Young Hollywood Awards. “It’s going to be very emotional.”

“I’m loving the journey that the writers are creating for her,” he added. I think [executive producer] Julie Plec and the writers are doing a great job.”

OK, so we know our favorite little doppelganger is going to have a rough time as a vampire — but how will it affect the ever-shifting love triangle between her and the Salvatores?

“It’s really going to open up both relationships between Stefan [Paul Wesley] and Damon [Ian Somerhalder] in a brand-new way,” Kevin said. “Her relationship with each of them now takes on a whole new dichotomy. … And more importantly, [we’ll see] how it changes things between Stefan and Damon.”

Is it October yet? I’m dying to see how everything plays out!
