Group time is over. In The Vampire Diaries synopsis for Season 4, Episode 15, “Stand by Me,” half the wandering Mystic Falls crew heads home, while others stay behind on the Canadian island.

Even though Canada has free healthcare, Stefan (Paul Wesley) is tasked with taking Elena (Nina Dobrev) to Dr. Meredith Fell (Torrey DeVitto). Caroline (Candice Accola) is worried about the new vamp’s mental well-being, so Matt (Zach Roerig) is called in for reinforcements. Clearly, they’re all dealing with what happened to Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).
On the island, (this is all so Lost), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) finds Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) reaction to his Debbie Downer announcement surprising. Apparently, the Five member Vaughn (Charlie Bewley) has stopped hunting and started sharing, because he fills them in on some recent developments.
Shocker: No one likes what Bonnie (Kat Graham) has to tell them about Professor Shane’s (David Alpay) plot.
Damon and Elena are still in communication, because his assistance helps her formulate a plan.
Fans who have been waiting for Elena (Nina Dobrev) to fully embrace her vampirism on The Vampire Diaries probably didn’t want it to happen like this. Nina Dobrev tells Entertainment Tonight that Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) death sends the newbie bloodsucker to a dark place.
“Jeremy was the last person she had left, so it’s very likely that Elena could go off the deep end now that she doesn’t have the one thing that kept her human,” says Nina, adding, “It’s going to destroy her.”
Part of the problem is that Jer has come back from the dead so many times already; the elder Gilbert sibling will try anything and everything to bring him back. Nina says, “Elena is basically mentally unstable, going a little crazy, and everyone is trying to help.”
Then Nina hints that the grief will fundamentally change Elena. “It’s an Elena we haven’t seen before, and you’ll be shocked, quite frankly,” promises Nina.
Elena the Ripper? That would definitely be shocking — but not something we’re sure the compassionate vamp could recover from.
