As previously reported, this Whitemore University upperclassman will take an interest in Caroline, though he will also possess a particular disdain for vampires in general. For a very personal reason.

Look for plenty more to be revealed about The Vampire Diaries Season 5 next weekend at Comic-Con... and don't forget to submit questions now for TV Fanatic. We'll be on the red carpet Saturday with all the stars!

No offense, but I'm not liking this whole situation. I hate when TVD writers introduce these characters that are recurring, and bring no purpose to the show whatsoever. This guy is being brought in because they got rid of Klaus, and they need a storyline for Caroline. End of story. They need to keep Caroline single, and show her in college, bff's with Elena, friends with Stefan, etc! Not another romance. Ugh..
