at . Comments

Cassidy Freeman isn't just coming to The Vampire Diaries - she may be sticking around for awhile!

The former Smallville star has landed a potentially recurring role on The CW smash as Sage, a woman who will be seen on episode 16 via flashback.

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

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.

Damon
