At the end of the most recent episode of The Vampire Diaries (Season 5, Episode 12: “The Devil Inside”), Damon reverted back to his old ways after “Elena” broke his heart. And his first victim was unfortunately none other than Aaron Whitmore. Dr. Wes is not going to be happy about this when he finds out what Damon and Enzo did to Aaron. As if he already didn’t hate vampires enough.

Vampire Diaries star Rick Cosnett recently spoke to TVFanatic.com about what’s next for Dr. Wes Maxfield, and not surprisingly, he’s getting desperate. On Thursday’s episode (Season 5, Episode 13: “Total Eclipse of the Heart”), Wes continues his all-important research project to rid the world of vampires with the help of a new benefactor (guest star Caitlin McHugh), but he hits a few stumbling blocks along the way — mainly, Damon and Enzo.

“Basically, let’s just say that Wes is a survivor and he takes very desperate measures and will do anything to get what he wants and to see his legacy and his plan come to fruition,” he said. “It’s pretty cool what happens.”

We hope Wes is taking a few survival skills from Katherine because he’s going to need them when Damon and Enzo come looking for revenge. However, it looks like Denzo is going to run into a snag of their own when “their plan takes an unexpected and horrifying turn.” We’re really hoping Jeremy has his Gilbert ring handy…  

Do you think Dr. Wes will be able to survive Damon and Enzo’s plan of attack? Sound off in the comments!

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, February 6 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
