It sounds like Katherine has company in the quasi after-life.
In February (spoiler alert!), Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec has confirmed that viewers will learn a lot more about who is buried along with Elena's doppelgänger underneath the Mystic Falls forest.
"We have a union soldier down there named Harper who we’ll be seeing soon," Plec told TV Guide Magazine.
This character will be played by Sterling Sulieman, a veteran of All My Children who will also star as CTU Agent Tac on this season’s 24. He debuts on February 11.
Earlier this week, Sulieman alerted Twitter followers to the role:
"Not going to Atlanta till Monday! but I got fitted for my Vampire Eyes. Also got to try on the black ones from true blood. Creepy."
