The Vampire Diaries Season 4: First Look at Elena!

by at . Comments

When The Vampire Diaries Season 4 kicks off on October 11, fans won't just be treated to brand new episodes of this CW thriller.

They will also be privy to a brand new Elena Gilbert, as the formerly innocent Mystic Falls resident transitions into - SPOILER ALERT! - an official member of the undead.

And TV Guide Magazine has posted the first photo from the upcoming premiere, which depicts a bloodthirsty Elena... locked behind bars for some reason? That's what it appears like to us:

That's the impression we get.

Are Elena's friends trying to protect their pal? Is Damon hoping for a round of very kinky sex? Are we misinterpreting the scene?

Sound off with your theories now and circle October 11 on your DVR. We can't wait.
