'Vampire Diaries' Creator: Elena's Season 4 Journey 'Won't Be Easy'

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!

What are YOUR thoughts on Elena as a vampire? How do you think she’ll handle her new — and how do you think it’ll affect her relationship with Stefan and Damon? Watch our interview with Kevin Williamson below, then drop a comment with your theories!

I think it would be difficult to tell the difference between Katherine and Elena,coz they are both vampires…and Katherine is really good making ppl think that she is Elena,but it is going to be an epic season:)
It would be awesome seeing both Elena and Katherine..but I THINK ELENA AND STEFAN BELONG TOGETHER,but I also think that they are going to play around with her love for Stefan and her love for Damon just to keep it interesting to watch:)

Katherine isn’t dead. After Mikael fed on her she turned up at the party where she imporsonated Elena and Klaus told her, if he dies, so does Damon. At the end of the episode it came out that Stefan foiled their plan to kill Klaus because she told him. The episode ends where they are driving off. She dissapeares from our screens, and Stefan steals the coffins.

I think she will be commited to Stefan, but it will break Damon’s heart, it would be nice to see Katherine again better yet-Damon and Katherine together. <3

Elena & Damon. They love each other, it consumes both of them. She loves Stephan, but its not a consuming love like with Damon.
