Someone on the Whitmore College campus is covering up a vampire murder and we have a pretty good idea who that is.
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.
Share your theories about Maxfield below!
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
The CW is bringing back Michael Malarkey. After casting the young actor as the male lead Prince Maxon in the second Selection pilot this past season, the network has tapped him for a major recurring role on veteran drama The Vampire Diaries. He will play Enzo, a charismatic but tortured figure from Damon’s past who arrives in Mystic Falls desperate to reconnect with his old friend. His first episode airs December 5. American-born and -raised Malarkey, repped by Silver Lining Entertainment and UK’s Hatton Mcewan Penford, studied at London’s LAMDA and has been working in the UK since.
COSTUME PARTY OF THE DAMNED — On campus, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is touched by a sad and secretive student named Aaron (guest star Shaun Sipos). Elena and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) attend the Whitmore Historical Ball dressed as Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII. At the Ball, Elena shares a dance with Dr. Maxfield (guest star Rick Cosnett), who has a disturbing message for her. Caroline’s (Candice Accola) evening at the Ball takes her from happiness to heartbreak. Meanwhile, Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) reveals her surprising history to Katherine (Nina Dobrev), and Damon tries to make a deal with Silas (Paul Wesley). Silas’ demand that Damon commit an unthinkable act leads to a violent confrontation. Kat Graham and Zach Roerig also star. Kellie Cyrus directed the episode written by Sonny Postiglione (#505).
You could barely wipe the smile off Paul Wesley’s face when he was playing The Ripper version of Stefan in 2011, so you can imagine how elated he was when I hit up The Vampire Diaries set as he was bringing to life another pseudo-Stefan, Silas. Meanwhile, his OG incarnation is drowning over and over at the bottom of a lake, unbeknownst to anyone. So to say Paul Wesley is having a killer time this season would be a massive understatement.
Fans are set to have an equally excellent experience watching Wesley as these paired performances bring forth his best work to date, and I’m only talking about episode one!
In addition to reveling in Paul’s permagrin, I found out what the future holds for Stelena now that Stefan heard Elena’s admission of Delena love and discovered that a pairing fans have been ‘shipping for seasons might actually come to fruition!
Think Caroline and Tyler will finally live happily ever after? Think again! Plus, Candice tells HollywoodLife.com why she’s excited for Damon’s upcoming ‘curve ball’ storyline.
The Vampire Diaries‘ fifth season premiere is just hours away — set your DVRs for The CW at 8 p.m. if they aren’t already — and while Elena (Nina Dobrev) will remain knee-deep in supernatural boy drama, she’s not alone! Candice Accola tells HollywoodLife.com that Caroline will face some of her biggest romantic challenges in season five, including a new college guy determined to lure her away from Tyler (Michael Trevino).
>> I’ve seen the premiere, and Caroline has a few really emotional scenes, especially with her mom.
Yeah, that’s definitely a sweet moment. It’s a proud moment.
>> When she drops Caroline off at school, did you feel like you were saying goodbye to your mom?
Personally, because she’s working as a writer on The Originals, I was more excited and happy and thrilled for her. There was a lot of sentiment there than just the idea that our characters won’t be together for a while. It was a genuine moment.
>> Well, that’s pretty awesome.
And a couple weeks after that moment, my family and I brought my little brother to college. We got him unpacked, watched him meet his roommate and got his dorm ready. Then we had to give the hug goodbye, and I was like, ‘Oh my God! It’s just like on the show!’ It was really funny.
The CW’s The Vampire Diaries will literally give it the old college try in Season 5 (bowing tonight at 8/7c), when Elena, Caroline and even (however briefly) a secretly dead Bonnie make their way to a nearby university for some frat boy-filled, dorm room-living, freshman-year fun.
Annnnd then we come back down to reality and remember that this is TVD we’re talking about, where danger and drama run rampant, and the guys of the Greek system can’t hold a candle to those undead Mystic Falls men. That doesn’t, however, mean that the additive saga will falter in the always tricky transition into college.
“The writers just knocked it right out of the park,” Vampire starlet Candice Accola assures TVLine. “I loved the [premiere] and thought it was really, really fun.”
And that’s not all the actress is excited about in the new season. Here, Accola details Caroline’s future with Tyler (and Klaus!), the reveal of Silas’ secret identity and more.
Episode: 5.10 Fifty Shades of Grayson Air date: December 12, 2013
Damon realizes Elena is in danger and enlists Stefan's help to find her. The brothers pay a visit to Aaron, and Damon shocks Stefan by revealing his first-hand knowledge of Aaron's family. In an attempt to stop Damon, Dr. Wes unleashes his secret weapon, forcing Damon to deal with a part of his past he thought was gone forever, as well as the consequences of his decades-long plan for revenge. Meanwhile, Elena is horrified by Dr. Wes' confessions about the dark history of Whitmore College and his own ultimate goal. Finally, a frantic Katherine turns to Matt for help, until she realizes that Nadia may be the one who can solve her problem.
