The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Who is Markos?!?

at .  Updated at . Comments

Sorry, Katherine.

You may have fooled a forgiving Elena and switched places with your doppleganger on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 11, but you will soon be replaced on this TV Fanatic favorite by a new big bad.

According to E! News, the series will introduce Markos on Season 17.

(UPDATERaffi Barsoumian has been cast in this role.)

An "imposing later from a faraway land," the villain is described as "super dark" and yet magnetic. Folks can't help but be drawn to him and even worship him.

Might Markos be a Traveler? Another vampire? A supernatural species of a type we are yet to meet?

Viewers will find out in late March or early April.

For now, watch The Vampire Diaries online if you need to catch up and react below: What did you think of Episode 100?

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.


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.
