When your lady friend goes over a bridge and into the water while strapped into a vehicle, there are any number of people to blame: For instance, the builders of the Wickery Bridge who haven’t made any positive improvements since the last fatal accident. The mechanic who failed to do a thorough brake inspection. The crazy vampire who was standing in the middle of the road in order to force the car into the watery depths. But when Vampire Diaries Season 4 returns, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will be blaming someone else for Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) fate.

According to TVLine, the elder Salvatore thinks Elena’s vampirism is Matt’s (Zach Roerig) fault. Granted, the poor kid was driving the car, but he couldn’t very well mow Rebekah (Claire Holt) down, could he? Plus, he has his own problems, now that his only means of transportation is at the bottom of the lake. He cannot afford a new truck.

Elena will be too busy transitioning to point fingers at anyone. However, she will start to remember certain things, E! Online reports, which will negatively impact someone’s relationship.

If E remembers the first time she met Damon, that could certainly make thing sticky between the Salvatore bros.
