The vampires are coming!

As seen at the conclusion of this week's new episode of The Vampire Diaries, that seal was never properly closed on the Mystic Falls tomb. We've already seen Sterling Suilieman's Harper rise from the dead as a result - and we can now confirm he won't be alone.

Stephen Martines has been cast as a blood sucker named Frederick. He won't be up to any good at all when the series returns from hiatus on March 25.

Martines rose to prominence on General Hospital and recently recurred on The Closer in the role of a journalist who squared off with Kyra Sedgwick's Brenda.

oh my god!!! it's a pattern. The same thing happened to me :(
This guy is a world class jerk. how can people even work with him????


Ladies, if you happen to come across this Stephen Martines asshole, run like hell, seriously. He is a class A con artist and will bleed you of everything you have if you let him. Make no mistake about him...he is the last person you want anything to do with. He's a liar and a scam artist and a thief, and I wish I'd never laid eyes on him.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
