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

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.

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.
