The Vampire Diaries always leaves us guessing, especially now that this sire bond is in play. We have tons of questions that we hope will be answered in Season 4, Episode 9, “O Come All Ye Faithful.” 

Is Damon going to release Elena?
We’ve temporarily given up trying to understand the sire bond. All we know is, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) can’t quite seem to keep their hands off each other. The elder Salvatore was on the brink of telling Elena to live her life without him, when she seemed to convince him otherwise. What does that mean for their coupledom — and what will Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) have to say about it?

Will Shane be successful?
It seems like Professor Shane (David Alpay) has been waiting around for 12 un-sired hybrids to murder for weeks nows. Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) finally cracked Adrian, but something tells us it won’t be smooth spelling. Tyler now has some weird alpha power over the hybrids, and chances are, when he finds out what Shane is up to, this little wolfie will bite back.

Who will die?
Speaking of dying, a character we’ve known since Season 1 will lose their life in the episode. The suspense is killing us. Oh, bad funeral pun. Too soon.

Why is Jeremy in exile?
Something sends Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) off the deep end — why else would Bonnie and Shane haul him out to the Gilbert lake house? It seems like the perfect place to keep an overzealous hunter from hunting... until two vampires show up.

What is Winter Wonderland?
It’s not Christmas in Mystic Falls. Heck, it might not even be winter, but the town is decking its halls with candy canes, twinkly lights, and snow. We can’t wait to find out more about this strange holiday.
