Hell hath no fury like a 2,000-year-old woman scorned.
Bonnie Bennett is not used to being powerless.
It’s always been quite the opposite for this witch, in fact, as Kat Graham’s beloved Vampire Diaries character has often held the magic key to get herself and her friends out of almost any jam on this CW hit.
But there was nothing Bonnie could do at the conclusion of last week’s season opener when Silas murdered her father in the Mystic Falls town square and all Bonnie was left screaming and crying into the ether, with no one around to hear or help. What will be the fallout of that heinous act on tonight’s “True Lies?”
The vampires are back. Last week marked the return of CW’s most smash hit series, “The Vampire Diaries,” and with several of the lovely bloodsuckers in college, the new season promises to be the most dubious yet. There will be new enemies, new romance, betrayal, and of course, more secrets.
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere: Who died?
On this week’s Vampire Diaries, viewers will meet the mysterious Dr. Wesley Maxfield (Rick Cosnett), a brilliant professor who’s clearly hiding a dark and dangerous secret. Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) suspicions about their teacher are further confirmed when fellow student Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) shares some intriguing information.
“He can be a jerk,” Cosnett told TVGuide.com about his character during our visit to the show’s set. “There’s a side to him that will be revealed which is not as nice as we’d all like.”
Cosnett admits it isn’t too long before Maxfield’s jig is up and his motives are revealed. (Hint: Think along the lines of the Founder’s Council.) “Elena and Caroline are coming into my world, and in bits and pieces, they’re starting to discover parts of Dr. Maxfield,” Cosnett says. “He shows a lot about the human condition and how things go wrong and the dichotomy between good and evil.”
Based on our exclusive first-look photo, it seems Maxfield will definitely be confronted by Caroline. But is that Katherine, and not Elena, in the photo? Either the doctor has something Katherine needs or our wavy-haired doppelganger is pretending to be Elena.

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
Caroline Forbes is off to college!
So, knowing this Vampire Diaries character as well as long-time fans do, this must mean sorority parties, right? A number of extracurricular activities? The loudest fan at every Whitmore College football game?
Not exactly, Candice Accola told me in an exclusive interview.
