Vampire Diaries Spoilers: New Doppelganger Coming in Episode 17!

Watch out, Vampire Diaries. You’re about to have even more doppelgangers coming out the ears! What’s this we hear about another look-alike making his or her way into our TVDers life? Read on to hear all the deets!

According to the synopsis for Season 5, Episode 17 (“Rescue Me”), “In order to keep Stefan from being harmed by Sloan and the Travelers, Caroline and Enzo agree to make a trip to Atlanta to find a newly discovered doppelganger.” What?! More doppelgangers? We’re not sure if we’re prepared for this development. It seems like we just got rid of the last batch.

No word on which variety this doppelganger might be. As they’re looking to exchange his or her life for Stefan’s, we’re leaning towards this doppelganger being of the Silas variety rather than the Amara one. Otherwise, would the Travelers also be after Elena? (And where is Katherine in all of this? Please don’t say dead.)

Would Caroline really turn an unsuspecting doppelganger over to the doppelgangers in exchange for Stefan? Probably, but that’s going to be awkward. Especially if she and Enzo road trip back from Atlanta with said doppelganger in tow. And what are the Travelers up to? What do they need a doppelganger for to begin with? This is also the episode in which Markos, the sexy Traveler leader, makes his first appearance. New handsome villain and another doppelganger? We have a feeling TVD will never be the same.

Are you excited to hear there will be a new doppelganger? Who do you think it will be? Sound off in the comments below!

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
