So far, everything of what we’ve heard about The Vampire Diariesnewest character, Tessa (Janina Gavankar), has been in relation to the Salvatore boys. So what’s this about a connection between Tess and our favorite ghost witch Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham)? Read on to find out!

Kat recently talked to TVGuide.com about the link she shares with Tessa: "They have a connection which you'll soon find out is much deeper and more long-lasting than everyone could've thought. What it becomes is really cool."

We were already super-intrigued by Tessa, who we find out in this sneak peek for tonight’s episode (Season 5, Episode 3: “Original Sin”) was the one to save Stefan from his safe at the bottom of the quarry (or to at least send the guy subsequently drained to save Stefan from said safe). She has been introduced in spoilers as someone who has a past connection the Damon and Stefan. So, what is she doing hanging with Bonnie? We didn’t think Bonnie could even form relationships past Jeremy and other peeps on “The Other Side.” Can Tessa also talk to ghosts? Will she and Bonnie work to take down Silas together? Because, that would be awesome.

What do you think the connection between Bonnie and Tessa is all about? Share your theories in the comments below!
