Previous Vampire Diaries spoilers have revealed that viewers will learn a lot more about the werewolf history of Mystic Falls next season.
We now know at least one way this will go down: producer Julie Plec tells TV Guide Magazine that a new character will be introduced, one who it's safe to assume knows a lot about these creatures and their connection to the area.
"Our big new addition is Mason Lockwood, the mayor's much younger and cooler brother, who has been estranged from the family," she said. "His return introduces a lot of questions about what is so special about that creepy Lockwood family."
Tyler's uncle will play a key role on season two of The Vampire Diaries. Any suggestions on who should portray him?
In other casting news, David Anders confirmed this week that he may not be finished with the series, season one finale stabbing be damned!
Sounds like John Gilbert will have competition for creepiest uncle if he does, in fact, come back this fall.
