DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s easy to see why fans of “The Vampire Diaries” are such a devoted bunch. Because the show is so addictive! So addictive, in fact, that fans have been tweeting practically non-stop for days in anticipation of the premiere episode of season four.
But, what is it about The Vampire Diaries that keeps fans glued to the tube? Perhaps it’s the long-running tug of war for Elena (Nina Dobrev) between vampire brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore, played by Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, respectively. That alone is enough to keep viewers engaged. After all, Damon did tell Elena she had to choose between the two, so what’s a girl to do? Well, she obliges, which creates even more friction between the brothers. And who can resist a good love triangle!
Now, as fans anxiously await the start of season four, their excitement is at fever pitch! Season three ended with one heck of a cliffhanger: Elena drowned with vampire blood in her system. What happens next? Without spoiling anything, according to the show’s producers, “everything is in transition.” Elena must decide between becoming a vampire or “face certain death”. And then there’s the Town Council and local church leaders who want to rid the town of Mystic Falls of the vampires.
With all of this and more hanging in the balance, suffice it to say that when season four premieres on Thursday, it’ll have been well worth the wait!
You won’t want to miss the season premiere of “The Vampire Diaries” on Thursday, October 11, at 8 p.m. on CW50.
