With all of the new storylines launched in the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries, it was almost easy to forget about Nadia (Olga Fonda), the Eastern European beauty who had a threesome with Matt and Rebekah in Prague only to follow the former back to Mystic Falls to perform some sort of spell on him. So, what is she up to?

“You seriously wouldn’t believe [Nadia’s story] if I told you,” TVLine’s Michael Ausiello revealed before dishing that Nadia has “a very surprising connection” to someone else on the show. Our money is on Katherine, who we have already pointed out also hails from Eastern Europe. Given that Katherine recently turned human again, the timing of Nadia’s trip to Mystic Falls seems like it could be connected.

Other possibilities include our boys the Salvatore brothers, who have been around long enough to make friends and enemies all around the world. There’s also Silas to consider. Could Nadia be related to the long lost love he tried to make immortal way, way back when? Whatever her reason for coming to town, she better not hurt Matt — or no amount of “surprising connections” will be able to save her from our wrath!

Whom on TVD do you think Nadia is connected to? Share your theories in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW, followed by the series premiere of Reign.
