Vampire Diaries Spoilers: David Alpay on the Ambiguous Atticus Shane
Ah, Professor Shane. The Vampire Diaries’ newest... villain? Slightly shady mentor? It’s hard to know what the guy is all about, and David Alpay says that’s intentional.
“I don’t even know if Shane is evil, to be honest,” David tells Hollywood Life. “It’s a little ambiguous. We’re not really sure, and I think that’s a big credit to the writing, which is getting more sophisticated as the seasons go by.”
We know he has a lot of info about the Five, was buddies with Pastor Young, and loves witches. Our sinister radar is going off, big time. We’ll definitely know more after Season 4, Episode 7, “My Brother’s Keeper,” when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has another encounter with the mysterious professor.
