SECRETS OF THE PAST — When Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) have the same dream that Stefan (Paul Wesley) is in danger and desperately needs their help, they convince Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to help them find Stefan. However, their plans are thwarted by a mysterious young woman named Tessa (guest star Janina Gavankar) who seems to know everything about Stefan’s history. In flashbacks to a distant time and place, Tessa reveals the shocking secrets in her past and what she has planned for the future. She also has a disturbing message for Damon about his own future. Silas (Paul Wesley) forces an unwilling accomplice to help him search for Katherine, leading to a confusing and life-threatening situation for Matt (Zach Roerig). Finally, Silas reveals the reason he’s determined to find Katherine, and Damon and Elena face a disturbing new reality. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Melinda Hsu Taylor & Rebecca Sonnenshine (#503).
Man, that Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) has a type. His ex Tessa (Janina Gavankar, True Blood) is coming to The Vampire Diaries Season 5, and according to TVLine, she’s just as nasty as Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev).
The ancient vamp returns to Mystic Falls, looking for her ex and his brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder). One reason she’s definitely a b-i-t-c-h? She steals Damon’s daylight ring.
If that’s not enough of a tease for you, we have another tidbit from director Joshua Butler, who revealed the title of Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 2: “True Lies.” He tweeted, “Awesome. Thanks to @IMDb, I can stop calling #TVD 5×02 by its Season/Episode number. #TrueLies #DirectorPride.”
There’s not much we know about this episode yet (other than that it’s named after a 1994 Schwarzenegger film, we presume). But Joshua is just the best and has previously tweeted two intriguing photos, one of a human Katherine and the other of what looks like a kiss between Damon and Elena.
But don’t expect to see Tessa in “True Lies.” the “nobleman’s daughter” won’t appear until Season 5, Episode 3. And wouldn’t you know it? IMDb has that episode’s title, too. According the site, here are the names of the first five episodes:
Season 5, Episode 1, “I Know What You Did Last Summer”
Season 5, Episode 2, “True Lies”
Season 5, Episode 3, “Original Sin”
Season 5, Episode 4, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”
Season 5, Episode 5, “Monster’s Ball”
Since the last three haven’t been verified yet, we won’t get too excited, but suffice it say we’re expecting an elegant-yet-terrifying soiree in Season 5, Episode 5.
Look out, Elena and Caroline, there’s a hot new professor on campus for Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries.
According to TV Guide, Nina Dobrev (Elena) and Candice Accola (Caroline) will be joined at Whitmore College by Australian newcomer Rick Cosnett, who will be playing Dr. Wes Maxfield, and he’s going to have it out for the two freshmen.
Dr. Maxfield is a brilliant, sexy, and somewhat cocky college professor, and he’s going to have the girls’ suspicions up as soon as they meet him. Of course they’re going to think that he’s got a super dark and mysterious secret — don’t all teachers in Mystic Falls?
Just look at the previous teachers they’ve had on the show. First there was Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis) and then there was Professor Atticus Shane (David Alpay). While Alaric was in league with the young vamps — Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) specifically — he had secrets, though none as big and dark as Professor Shane.
So it definitely doesn’t sound like the girls will be hot for teacher, it looks like they’ll be hot on his trail.
