The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere to Introduce New Students, Vengeful World Traveler

by at . Comments

With months to go until The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off (on October 10!), The CW has released a few casting notes regarding the opening episode.

Who will we meet when the action shifts from high school to Whitmore University? The following characters, at least two of whom are likely to recur according to SpoilerTV, will be introduced on the premiere:

  • Nadia, described by the network as an emotional beauty in her 20s who has traveled around the world on a "mission of vengeance." (UPDATE: Olga Fonda has landed this role.)
  • Jesse, an upperclassman in his mid-20s. (UPDATE: Looks like Jesse will be getting close to Caroline).
  • Megan, also in her 20s, hard working and especially intelligent.
Elena Gilbert at Graduation

This is all a bit vague, of course, but it's still fun to play the casting game!

Visit our Vampire Diaries forum now and throw out a few suggestions.

UPDATE: The premiere will be titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Nadia will probably go after Katarina she has a messy past and Damon and Jer will try to protect her. Or She will confuse Elena for Katarina and attack her. The girl and the Nerd are there to mess wit Caroline probably. Can't wait for S5! Hopefully Julie does it better than the 90210 crew which totaly messed up the College journey!

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
