The Season 3 cliffhanger on The Vampire Diaries has left our minds swimming with questions. Executive producer Kevin Williamson addressed one the biggest mysteries when he spoke to Hollywood Life at the Young Hollywood Awards: Did Elena (Nina Dobrev) know that she has vampire blood coursing through her veins when she told Stefan (Paul Wesley) to save Matt (Zach Roerig) instead of her?

“No. She was sacrificing herself for Matt,” Kevin revealed. Oh, heck. She really is going to freak out when the show returns in Season 4! “It’s going to be very emotional,” Kevin agrees, saying, “I’m loving the journey that the writers are creating for her.”

His co-executive producer, Julie Plec, has hinted that now that Elena is a vampire, things are going to change between her, Stefan, and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). “I think it’s really gonna open up both [her] relationships between Stefan and Damon in a brand new way,” teases Kevin. Not only that, but the relationship between Damon and Stefan is going to be altered by Elena’s transition.

Sigh. Just when those brothers were starting to get along.
