So far, The Vampire Diaries Season 4 has kept us on our toes with hunters, delusions, flashbacks, sacrifices, and all that good stuff. We’ve come to expect such twists and turns from our favorite supernatural world, but what have been our favorite storylines this season? It was difficult, but we narrowed it down to Season 4’s top five storylines.

All things Silas/Shane: We have no idea who Professor Shane (David Alpay) really is or why he has such a fascination with Silas and a “greater evil,” but to say that we are intrigued is an understatement. Plus, the more hot professors hanging around, the better!

Delena: Sure, there’s the whole sire-bond twist, but watching Damon (Ian Somerhalder) finally get to be happy (if even for a moment), was just about perfect. Plus, having Elena (Nina Dobrev) be sired adds a layer of complexity to everything she does and everything Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon believe. It’s heartbreaking and so intriguing at the same time.

The Five: Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) finally got a storyline with an edge! Also, have you seen his new hunter muscles?

Expression: The idea of Bonnie (Kat Graham) performing something darker than black magic is horrifying, but we are hooked!

The hybrid hero: From un-siring his friends to becoming Alpha to now being Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) number one target, we love everything about Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) storylines this season.
