Only chiming in because I read "one of the four" to mean "don't use two, three, or all four" as well.

However it does say "inspired by one of the four" and if you make a video to all four seasons, then yes, one of the four has inspired you.

Although, that's like saying "I'm going to eat one of these chocolates" then having "another one" aaaand then before you know it you've eaten the whole box. :3

Doesn't say "just one" so that's that. :P

Any word on how many people will be eliminated this round? The original chart hasn't been updated for us having 32 people instead of 16.

Just showing visual representations of the seasons might quality for the theme but it won't exactly score you high points in terms of concept. At least not for me. Remember we're not just looking for random season scenes, you still need a theme to tie it together. For example if you were to pick "Spring", that doesn't mean you need to show flowers blooming in every scene or lots of rivers and mountains and stuff. Spring also gives off the impression of birth, renewal, growth, new beginnings, life etc. There's a lot of connotations, picking one or more of those and creating a video centered around it will still fit the theme and also earn you bonus points for being original and creative. Like Code said on the first page, it doesn't need to be a literal representation of the theme, as long your season(s) are recognizable then you can go as wild as you want for your ideas.

I don't wanna watch 32 videos with just clouds or sun either. :|

Lots of this right here. I felt like screaming this last summer. For a lot of these themes that Code uses, there's a wealth of established literary symbolism present across tons of cultures. You don't need to reinvent the wheel or try to bullshit your way into technically fitting the theme if you look at it the right way. Use it to your advantage, and form your idea around the theme, and you'll do well.
