The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 16 Caroline is pleasantly surprised when Elena decides to rejoin the cheerleading squad, but her pleasure turns to shock when Elena’s behavior proves dangerous. Not giving up on their search for the cure, Damon and Rebekah work together until his unwanted advice catches her off-guard. Klaus tries to use Hayley guest star Phoebe Tonkin to get the information he’s after and makes an intriguing discovery in the process.
Meanwhile, a bored Elena throws a wild party and gets into an ugly fight. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Elisabeth R. Finch & Michael Narducci.
Elena stretches on Stefan in "Bring It On"What is the “new” Elena Gilbert like now that she’s officially switched off her humanity and embraced her inner vampress? She’s sassy. She’s wild. She’s ravenous. And, oh my Salvatore, homegirl has no problem flashing her cheerleading spanks while stretching out her long, lean limbs in public.
In a new sneak peek video from The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 16, Stefan (Paul Wesley) confronts Elena (Nina Dobrev) — who is the midst of warming up for a cheerleading competition — about her recent feeding habits. He doesn’t chastise her but seems very concerned with her questionable behavior. And you can’t blame the guy — after having gone full-on Ripper twice in his lifetime and destroying entire villages, he definitely knows a thing or two about the gruesome ramifications of blood lust.
In fact, Elena has spiraled so out of control that he actually dares to ask her (yes her, sweet compassionate former doppelganger) if she’s involved with the missing blood supply at the local hospital, to which she responds offhandedly, “Trust me. I’m sick of bloodbags. I prefer something a little warmer.”
Watch the “Bring It On” clip below and behold the new Elena as she casually raves about sinking her teeth into delicious human necks and uses Stefan’s shoulder as a balance beam:

Stefan: Hey. We need to talk.
Elena: So talk. You can help me stretch. [She places her bare leg on his shoulder. Stefan glances at it for a second.]
Stefan: Okay. Did you feed on that cheerleader?
Stefan: I see. You wouldn’t happen to know anything about the hospital’s missing blood supply, would you?
Elena: Trust me. I’m sick of bloodbags. I prefer something a little warmer.
Stefan: Look, Elena, I know what you’re going through. I was having the time of my life when I first turned too. I didn’t start ripping people’s heads off until 1912, and the next thing I know I was killing an entire village.
Elena: Am I supposed to be scared of becoming you?
Stefan: Yea you are ’cause I know how deep down you can fall, and I know how difficult it is to climb back out. [pauses] Come on. You’re better than this.
Elena: “I don’t know. Maybe this is the better version of me.”
Are you shocked by Elena’s blase attitude about feeding on innocent people? Do you think she’s on the verge of becoming a Ripper just like Stefan did? Post your thoughts in the comments!
THE NEW NORMAL — Elena’s new outlook has everyone concerned, leading Stefan and Damon to agree that going back to the normal routine of high school would be the best thing for her.
