To Feed or Not To Feed? Elena Has To Decide in Season 4 Of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ [Video]

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Finale The Departed (5)

The CW gave fans their first look at season 4 of The Vampire Diaries in a tantalizing teaser trailer at Comic-Con that managed to tease the new season while giving almost nothing away. Last season’s killer finale (forgive the horrible pun, I couldn’t resist) saw our hero Elena poised to face the one fate she never wanted for herself: she’s now a vampire. Rather than pretend Elena’s touching speech about wanting a human future for herself never happened, the trailer uses the dialogue from the mountaintop scene she shared with Stefan in season 2 to create a poignant voiceover that both illustrates Elena’s feelings and gives us a bloody recap to remind us just what her newfound vampirism means.

What about new footage you ask? There’s not much, but we do get a glimpse of the Salvatore brothers debating Elena’s predicament and Damon manhandling poor Matt. More importantly the trailer poses the most pressing question for Elena–to feed or not to feed? Watch the trailer below and then let us know what you think in the comment section.

Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries will premiere October 11 at 8:00pm on The CW.
