The Vampire Diaries Picture Preview: Messing with Tessa

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The CW has released photos from The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 7.

Titled "Death and the Maiden," the episode will feature a whole lot of Janina Gavankar as Tessa, with the official network description teasing Damon having to turn to this ancient witch for help with a "new plan."

Why does she have blood on herself? What is Elena demanding of Tessa? And what is Damon searching for with that flashlight?

All good questions. But we won't have answers until the episode airs on November 14.

For now, click through the following images and prepare for an installment that also promises a "heartbreaking confession" from Stefan.

Castle Season 7 to Focus on Rick, Tighten the Caskett Bond

What can fans expect from Castle Season 7? A strong focus on Rick, for starters.


I love that they brought her into the show. Gave a lot of background into characters and replaced Bonnie as the witch to the show for the time being. I enjoy watching her more than Bonnie too.


It's called Death and the Maiden? Just after a Ravenswood episode was called the same? Odd. I really don't like the addition of this Tessa. One episode of her was really plenty.


Damon's brother, mom, uncle and love interest?
Tessa's sister, childhood friend, dad and ex boyfriend?
