We knew the fourth season of The CW's Vampire Diaries was going to be different, and a new clip from the premiere shows how quickly things are changing. Fang fans, say hello to Vampire Elena (Nina Dobrev).

The clip seems to pick up pretty quickly after the action-packed season three finale, and shows Elena coming to grips with exactly how she is still (kind of) kicking in the new premiere.

Luckily, she has Stefan and Damon there to help walk her through the transition, but this definitely looks like it will make for some real drama as she tries to figure out her new undead lifestyle.

The best line? "He didn't."

Check out the clip below, which will have to tide us all over until the new season kicks up on Thursday, Oct. 11.

How do you like this twist heading into season four?
