With The Vampire Diaries returning for Season 5 on October 3, we’re anxious to see what this season has in store for Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and his evil doppelganger Silas. What we didn’t expect was that it looks like there’s a new lady in town — we just don’t know which version of Paul she’s here for.

Executive producer Caroline Dries dished to TV Guide about Tessa, the new girl played by True Blood’s Janina Gavankar. According to Caroline, Tessa is “a beautiful and exotic self-assured woman who comes to town to rekindle an old flame.” While it might be easy to assume that she’s burning up for Stefan, remember that he’s currently drowning in a box, so maybe she’s heard word that big bad Silas is back in town and she’s coming for him.

But don’t just expect love to be the only thing Tessa has come to Mystic Falls for. “Tessa has a definite flair for fun,” Caroline teased. “But she has a tendency to hold a grudge. You don’t want to cross her.” Uh-oh, could she be coming to town to exact revenge on a former lover? We’ll have to see!

What do you think about Tessa and her potential love interest in Stefan and Silas? Which doppelganger is she in love with? Hit the comments and let us know what you think!
