Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer

According to TV Line, we'll first see the character - described as “sexy and fearless, with a devilish smile" - in 1912. Look for her to have a connection to both the Salvatores and the Originals.

That's all we know for now, but we do have an update on Samantha Gilbert: this family member will NOT be seen in present day. She'll also appear in one of the show's famous looks back. The role has not yet been cast.

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.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
