Vampire Tessa has spent the centuries looking for the brothers Salvatore. Um, she’s almost as bad as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) at hunting down her former love interests! (How long did it take him to find Katherine, again?) Evidently Tessa doesn’t have fond memories of the boys. Still, she seems to be able to hold her own when she tangles with Damon (Ian Somerhalder). In fact, she gets the upper hand when she steals his daylight ring. “Damon is hot” takes on a whole new meaning... (Side note: We know Rebekah is with Matt now, but does anyone else think it's for the best Stefan's Original ex will probably be out of the state when Tessa shows up?)
First appearing in Season 5, Episode 3, Tessa is a “nobleman's daughter,” according to SpoilerTV. Maybe we’ll first meet her in flashback, but unfortunately for the Salvatores, she’s very much a part of their present as well.
