Look out, Damon Salvatore.
Shaun Sipos is coming for your woman.
According to E! News, the former Melrose Place star will return to The CW this fall as Aaron on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, a college student with a tortured past who bonds with Elena over their mutual, dark family histories. Sipos is expected to stick around for at least a few episodes.
And he won't be the only Whitmore man to make an impression on one of TVD's leading ladies: Kendrick Sampson is on board as Jesse, who is expected to cozy up to a certain blonde vampire freshman.
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off on Thursday, October 3.
