TV Line has some Vampire Diaries Season 5 Scoop for us in their Fall TV Spoiler Spectacular! Plus a sneak peek at Delena with this new photo from the Season 5 premiere “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.
PREVIOUSLY ON… | Stefan — who was revealed to be Silas’ doppelganger — was locked up at the bottom of the ocean, Elena chose Damon, Katherine became human and Bonnie resurrected Jeremy (but remained a ghost herself).
COMING UP NEXT | The new season picks up three months later, following a (relatively) quiet summer. But this is Mystic Falls, so peace doesn’t stand a chance, particularly with Silas posing as Stefan. “We’re going to explore this phenomenon of the doppelganger and how and why they exist in our mythology,” teases executive producer Caroline Dries, who also previews the arrival of a “legitimately Bigger Bad” down the road who is “scary and creates a new dynamic.” On the romance front, Elena and Damon’s honeymoon period could be disrupted by her friendship with a fellow college student (played by Melrose Place‘s Shaun Sipos), while Caroline remains focused on Tyler even as she connects with upperclassman Jesse (Greek‘s Kendrick Sampson). Speaking of Tyler: While the EP won’t reveal when the hybrid returns, she does promise it will be “in a very beautiful, appropriate moment” — and with “a little bit of attitude” about needing Klaus’ OK. Lastly, Bonnie and Jeremy experience some connectivity issues that not even AT&T MiFi can resolve. Explains Dries: “The external conflict is, ‘I can’t touch you,’ and the internal conflict is, ‘I actually have feelings for you, but I can’t talk to you about it.'”
TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Mystic Falls’ favorite busboy is getting a juicy storyline following his return from Europe. “[Matt is] not a peripheral character this season,” teases Dries. “He really has an interesting, intriguing storyline this year. We are introduced to it briefly in the season premiere.”
