We have a few spoilers to share with you regarding some new Vampire Diaries characters and relationships that will be popping up as the season continues.
First, according to E!Online, Bonnie will be getting a new love interest. Apparently he’ll be okay with her using her powers and, like many other characters on the show, has a few secrets of his own:
His name is Luka, and he’s comfortable with her powers because his history professor father taught him all about the Salem witches. Oh, and he has a family secret of his own that he shares with Ms. Bonnie, maybe before she’s ready…
Zap2it has also revealed that Lauren Cohan, who played cat-burglar Bela on Supernatural in its third season, will be joining the cast of The Vampire Diaries in a recurring role this season. Cohan will be playing a vampire named Rose, who will likely become involved with Damon at some point.
Rose is over 500 years old and described as disarmingly elegant despite a “tough girl” first impression. Five centuries of bloodsucking have given her a certain edge. “Maybe there’s some humanity left in her — have fun finding it,” my source says.
She’s expected to make her first appearance in Episode 8, titled “Rose” — yeah, she’s kind of a big deal.
For an even bigger spoiler, E!Online has said that someone from the cast is going to die soon…and not “die” in the way that Vicki originally did when she became a vampire. Instead, this is more like when Vicki died for real. This character will be gone from the show after the death.
According to reliable sources, The Vampire Diaries will be killing off one of its characters. And it won’t be the Jeremy-got-his-neck-snapped-but-was-wearing-a-magic-ring kind of death. This one will be for good. The character will be no more. And the actor will no longer be working on the show.
My money is on Mason or Matt, but I could be wrong about that. I don’t think they’ll be killing off a main character (ie. the Salvatore brothers, Elena or Katherine), and I think that Bonnie’s witch powers will be useful for the continuing storyline, but there’s a few other characters they may kill. Perhaps even Tyler. Or Aunt Jenna, maybe? I should stop before I name every secondary character on the show.
