"We know that a couple of new characters are joining "The Vampire Diaries" early this season, but one person we won't be seeing in the first few episodes is Bonnie's love interest, Jamie. "Jamie hasn't shown up yet and we're four scripts in," executive producer Julie Plec tells us. "He's still a factor in our minds in that he still exists and they have a connection and a bond. We just haven't decided how much more to explore that. We're keeping it on the back burner for now."
Not only that but Carina mackenzie of Zap2it tweeted that she had found out for sure that it was in fact Damon's blood that saved Elena and will ultimately make her transition into a vampire.
While Hollywood life have revealed the following:
"I’ve got some good news and some bad news for those Vampire Diaries fans hoping for a reconciliation between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) in season four: While Elena will remember meeting him before Stefan (Paul Wesley), it doesn’t sound like Damon is in any mood to pal around with her — let alone hop into bed with her!" I think for [Damon] it’s just like, ‘Yep, well, that’s in the past,” Julie Plec tells Entertainment Weekly about Elena’s sudden change of heart. “That was then, this is now. You made your choice.’ … Damon’s not going to be sitting around moping, that’s for sure. He’s going to have a little bit of a ‘tude probably.”
Of course, that doesn’t mean season four will be totally devoid of “Delena” scenes. Quite the contrary, in fact. Julie tells EW that two very “memorable” Damon-Elena scenes will happen on the second and fourth episodes, respectively, including what Julie calls her favorite Damon moments of all-time!
E! online solidified the revelation that it was Damon's blood that saved Elena ""There is always new cast members and those who are dead can always come back to life!" Pedowitz teases of the new season. "As you know, the season ended with Elena becoming a vampire and the goal is how she adjusts to being a vampire and does she follow Stefan's path or does she follow Damon's path? Does the vampire blood lust get her or not?" When asked who will serve as Elena's sire, Pedowitz proved he does actually watch the show, explaining: "It's Damon's blood, which helped, but they never discovered who their sire was in any of the things. They think it's Klaus, but they're not sure." Color us impressed by Pedowitz's TVD knowledge!"
