The CW Network has released a photo gallery for The Vampire Diaries' Season 4 premiere "Growing Pains", debuting Thursday, October 11 at 8 PM ET. Nina Dobrev stars as Elena, who isn't quite herself this season after the events of the Season 3 finale in May. I'll give you a hint, the "Growing Pains" title is quite a literal one. We also have a gallery of promo images as well, so check out this plethora of photos before delving into Season 4 next month.
