Nina Dobrev, Rick Cosnett, Candice Accola
Someone on the Whitmore College campus is covering up a vampire murder and we have a pretty good idea who that is.
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere: Who died?
On this week's Vampire Diaries, viewers will meet the mysterious Dr. Wesley Maxfield (Rick Cosnett), a brilliant professor who's clearly hiding a dark and dangerous secret. Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena's (Nina Dobrev) suspicions about their teacher are further confirmed when fellow student Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) shares some intriguing information.
The Vampire Diaries
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 got off to a running start with a fast-paced premiere that set up Elena's upcoming internal struggle with Stefan's torturous summer. Meanwhile Damon strives to keep everything in Mystic Falls under control, Bonnie refuses to reveal her death and, most of all, Silas sets off on his incredibly villainous path of destruction while trying to track down Katherine and her now-cure-laced human blood.
Read on to find out what happens when the summer ends and the death, destruction and drama that was on hold picks up again.
Michael Trevino, Candice Accola
The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Forbes may have resisted Klaus' temptations, but can she resist the lure of college boys?
"We will see other male characters in the series that will be in college and that are good looking. So, there's definitely opportunity for temptation or flirting or whatever young freshman in college do," Candice Accola tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "But Caroline is still holding onto her relationship with Tyler."

When we last saw Caroline, she had graduated high school with her best friends by her side. But the one person missing? Her love Tyler (Michael Trevino). After a brief visit to surprise Caroline for prom, Tyler left town to avoid the threat of his enemy Klaus (Joseph Morgan). But on his way out of Mystic Falls, Klaus told Caroline, "Tyler is now free to return to Mystic Falls. He's your first love. I intend to be your last — however long it takes."
So why is Tyler still absent when the CW series returns? And when they do eventually reunite, will their love remain?

One threesome, two bubble baths, a few deaths and a sly, yet surprisingly swoon-worthy, Silas? Judging back the craziness of the Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere, fans are in for one heck of a (sexy) season.
The show picks up with everyone well-aware that the carefree summer is coming to an end and the next chapter of their lives is about to begin. Confirming what Ian Somerhalder recently told us, Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) are nothing short of adorable (and horny!). Caroline (Candice Accola) is as Type-A as ever while preparing her dorm, Bonnie (Kat Graham) is still pretending that she's away for the summer so her friends don't have to deal with her death ...
The Vampire Diaries
The Vampire Diaries is heading into one fiery season.
In our exclusive first look at the Season 5 poster, the core cast is in stark black while Elena (Nina Dobrev) stands out in her sexy red, see-through skirt. "Blood lines are torched. Battle lines are drawn," the tagline reads.
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Promo: Get a first look at a human Katherine
The Vampire Diaries has cast Australian newcomer Rick Cosnett to play Caroline and Elena's newest foe, Dr. Wes Maxfield, TVGuide.com has learned.
Get scoop on 40 returning shows!
As we previously teased, Dr. Maxfield is a brilliant — and somewhat cocky -- professor at Whitmore College, and after meeting him, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) begin to think he's hiding a dark and dangerous secret. If any of the show's past teachers (ahem, Alaric and Professor Shane) are any indication, we're guessing Maxfield is fully aware of the vampires lurking around town.
The Vampire Diaries' Klaus has moved on to another city, but does that mean he's forsaken his love for Caroline?

The Vampire Diaries took doppelgangers to a new level in the Season 4 finale when Silas finally revealed his true face, showing Stefan (Paul Wesley) that he is, in fact, a doppelganger before tossing him into a lake inside a safe.
