To feed or not to feed, that is the question Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) must face when “The Vampire Diaries” returns to the CW on Thursday, Oct. 11.
After being unwittingly turned into a vampire in last season’s finale, the season premiere, “Growing Pains,” opens with Elena still in “transition,” as Bonnie (Kat Graham) puts it in one of the newly released videos below. She’s not fully dead nor is she fully alive. What to do? Salvatore brothers to the rescue!
The first clip offers a glimpse at Elena learning her present undead predicament from – who else – the brothers Salvatore. “You were in an accident,” Stefan tells a confused Elena as she wakes up at home.
“When Jeremy brought you to the hospital before all this happened, your injuries were worse than anyone knew,” he continues. “Meredith Fell made a choice. She used Damon’s blood to heal you.”
An enraged Damon interjects, “And when Rebekah ran Matt’s truck off the road you had vampire blood in your system, Elena.” Cue shocked Elena below!

But that’s not all! Take a look at the previews below to see what’s happening with Klaus-inhabited Tyler and why Bonnie is willing to sacrifice it all to “go to the other side” and bring Elena back.
