Mystic Falls is headed for some major change.

A new teaser for The Vampire Diaries, featuring new footage from the upcoming season, has surfaced on the web -- and the first question coming out of Elena's mouth after she's ... resurrected (sort of) from the dead is, well, "Am I dead?!"

Tough question to answer.

"She's still in transition," Bonnie says. "Not fully dead, not fully alive."

For Damon and Stefan, they find themselves in a unique position -- one they probably weren't prepared for.

"We have all day before she has to feed, that's a day to exhaust every possible way out of this," Stefan says, while Elena continues on her nervous breakdown as her journey into transitioning into a vampire becomes clearer and clearer.

"There is no way out of it!" Damon exclaims. "You feed or you die."

The truth hurts.

Watch the preview below, which includes a standout Jeremy line ("The fangs come in yet?"), another car accident and more life-death dilemmas:

The Vampire Diaries returns Oct. 11 on the CW.
