While we wait for the second half of the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries to get started, news has arrived that a new vampire student named Luke will arrive on this scene.

It will be nice to finally get some definitive and diverse representation on the show. I wait to see the character's personality up close and personal.
What do you think of this news? Bold new step for The Vampire Diaries?
