"Vampire Diaries" fans were shocked that Elena turned into a vampire in the Season 3 finale... but not as shocked as Elena's going to be when she wakes up feeling very thirsty when Season 4's premiere, "Growing Pains," debuts on Oct. 11.
This new image reveals a not-so-pleased-looking Nina Dobrev as she peers out of what appears to be a jail cell of some kind. Who could have locked Elena up? Is it the intimidating
new hunter in Mystic Falls? Or is it her own friends, who are desperately trying to find a cure for her condition before she's forced to feed?
We have to admit, we weren't too worried about the nameless, faceless Council when Evil Alaric first let them in on the vampires' secret last season. After all, the vamps have been living under their noses for years.
Don't forget to tune in on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. EST!
