The Vampire Diaries has a new villain, and, according to Ian Somerhalder, he'll be a look like Damon Salvatore. In advance of season 5, the lead vamp sat down with TV Guide to talk about what to expect from the Atlanta set:

Silas doesn't give a sh--. He's like Damon in Season 1. [He thinks,] 'I am almighty, all-powerful, I will mess you up. This is what I want. I'm going to kill everything in the wake if you screw this up for me, but I'm going to toy with you a little bit.'

While dealing with an absent brother and GF Elena at college, Damon also has to fight tensions with Katherine, essentially an Elena doppelganger (both played by Nina Dobrev). On keeping it together this season, Ian says:

You don't send your girl off to college who really needs a break from your hometown, and tell her 'I need you back here.' You're going to say, 'Go! As much as I want you here and as much as I want to spend time with you, you've got to go live your life.'
