Vampire Diaries Promo Analysis For Season 4, Episode 15

The promo video for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 15, “Stand by Me” is a lot to process. It sheds some light on Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) fate — but it calls Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) stability into question. We’ll take you through second by second to try and see if the new vamp is about to snap.

0:00 Harry Potter and the Cave of Wonders
Sorry, we were dazzled by that bright light.

0:01 Jer Bear!
And we’re crying again.

0:02 Elena screams out her brother’s name.
This isn’t the first time she’s seen him like this... but it may be the last.

0:04 – 0:06 Elena cradles Jeremy.
Good thing our tears are blurring the sight of her gaping head wound.

0:07 Gilbert ring!
But will it work on the supernatural hunter...

0:08 Yeesh.
Was he always bleeding from his nose? That does not look good.

0:09 Stefan sees the writing on the wall.
Or the lack of response from Jeremy.

0:10 “The ring is gonna bring you back.”
We’re not so sure about this one, E.

0:12 “The ring is gonna bring you back.”
Unfortunately, just saying it twice doesn’t make it so.

0:13 – 0:15 Stefan and Damon have a powwow.
Neither seems convinced Jeremy will pull through.

0:16 – 0:18 Elena’s waiting for Jeremy to wake up.
Um, how long do you have?

0:19 Deathly still shot
Still crying, BTW.

0:20 – 0:22 Matt comforts Elena.
Aw. He must be missing his bestie, too!

0:23 – 0:26 Time of death?
Dr. Fell wants to make it official.

0:27 – 0:28 Vamp with a vengence
Elena takes her rage out on the doc.

0:29 Bonnie goes for a run.
And we thought the race for the cure was over.

0:30 – 0:31 The Salvatores discuss Elena’s sanity.
Prognosis? Not so good.

0:32 Elena sits still.
Paging Oliver Sacks.

0:33 – 0:35 Elena’s in denial.
Does that mean Jer’s really... Can we be denial, too, please?

0:36 – 0:37 Matty breaks down.
All he has now is his truck.

0:38 – 0:39 Witch, please.
If Bonnie won’t help, maybe Silas will?

0:40 Meredith looks terrified.
Probably with good reason.

0:41 – 0:42 The Gilbert family photograph grows ever smaller.
Elena’s last tie to her humanity, right?

0:43 Damon doubts himself.
It takes a village, D.

0:44 – 0:45 Drip, drip, drop: The photograph frame breaks.
Is this reality sinking in?

0:46 – 0:47 Elena starts to grieve.
This isn’t going to be pretty.
