Katherine Pierce, you may have taken over Elena's body as a last resort on your deathbed but, as hard as you try to be evil, you'll soon be replaced by a new Vampire Diaries baddie!
E! Online is reporting that a new villain is coming to Mystic Falls and will be introduced to us in Season 5, Episode 17. We'll be meeting Markos, a "charismatic but imposing leader from a faraway land." Exactly how far away? Like, another dimension or something? Aparently he's "super dark, but people can't help but be drawn to him, and he's worshipped by his followers."
Since he won't be joining The Vampire Diaries Season 5 for a while yet, and with exactly zero cast members confirmed, it's time to get the fanbase dialoguing again...
Might Markos be a Traveler? Another vamp? A supernatural type we are yet to meet? Either way, it certainly sounds like he's bad news for the vamps of Mystic Falls, whose own list of followers is pretty slim!
What are your initial thoughts about Markos? Does he have what it takes to be the big bad of The Vampire Diaries? Many more details will likely emerge in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, let me know in the comment section below!
