Nina Dobrev recently opened up about what’s in store for Elena in Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries, and also how Elena is going to react to learning that she actually met Damon first. Will it be the game changer that so many fans hope it will be? After all, in the season finale she did say to Damon, “Maybe if I had met you first…”
“Finding out that she chose Stefan even though she actually met Damon first. . . there’s so much going on and there are so many emotions,” Dobrev recently told Us Weekly. “It’s going to be a new beast going into Season 4.”

“I know that Elena’s going to struggle a lot with keeping her humanity,” Nina shared. “Up until now, that’s what she’s been struggling to hold on to. Her life is so supernatural, and now, without having a choice, she’s going to have to live with it for the rest of her life.”

Bella was literally begging Edward to be a vampire well before the end of the book series. The fact that Elena was never like that is something that sets The Vampire Diaries apart from other stories from the same genre. It also makes the coming realization that she is a vampire now so much more challenging for Elena. It wasn’t something that she was wanting or counting down the days for…
