Vampire Diaries Season 5 Speculation: Is Stefan or Silas Covered With Blood? (PHOTO)

What’s with all the blood, Stefan? Or should we say Silas? With a new doppelganger running around, we’re not sure how long it’ll be before the rest of Mystic Falls is able to spot the imposter and free the real Stefan from his underwater prison!

In this photo from The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 3 (“Original Sin”), one of Paul Wesley’s characters has a lot of blood around his mouth — you know, as if he’s just ripped into someone’s neck and fed. He’s also looking very broody. And kind of sexy, yeah? Or maybe we’re just projecting.

It’s totally possible it could be Silas wreaking some major havoc on Mystic Falls while he’s running around incognito, but given Stefan’s Ripper past, it’s so hard to tell. Also, if you were trapped in a coffin at the bottom of a river and managed to get out, the first thing you’d need is a lot of food, right?

More speculation: given his outfit (leather jacket), this is definitely not a flashback, which means it takes place at some bar in the current world. And it sort of looks like he might be hanging out in the town square … which is where a lot of slaughtering has happened on TVD in the past, right?

Since this episode is a few weeks out, we guess we’ll just to wait and wonder. But at least we’ll get to see the premiere next Thursday, October 3 at 8 p.m. ET.

Do you think this is a photo of Stefan or Silas betting bloody? Let us know in the comments!
