Hell hath no fury like a 2,000-year-old woman scorned.
After almost a full season since the character was first mentioned, Vampire Diaries fans finally got to meet the show's most powerful witch, Qetsiyah, in the flesh. Turns out Tessa (Janina Gavankar), the Mystic Falls newcomer determined to take down Silas (Paul Wesley) was also the witch who created the immortality spell, the other side and the cure.

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.
Paul Wesley has played several reincarnations of his Vampire Diaries character, from sensitive Stefan to Ripper Stefan and various shades in between. But at the start of Season 5 (Thursday, 8/7c, The CW), Wesley takes on his biggest challenge yet by playing two characters — a physically destroyed Stefan and his immortal and manipulative doppelganger Silas.
A Threesome! Swoon-worthy Silas! 5 Teases from The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 premiere
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 ...

Taking down an adversary is much more complicated when it's someone you once thought of as family.
On the CW's new series The Originals, a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to New Orleans to take over the city he once ruled. Problem is, the current head honcho is his former protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who no plans to step down.
The Originals Video: Meet Klaus' biggest competition yet
"There's a lot of history and love in the past," Morgan tells TVGuide.com in the video interview below. "Coming back to New Orleans and trying to kick him off the throne, [Klaus] has mixed feelings about the whole thing. That's what allows them to have this heart-to-heart with undercurrents of, 'I kind of want to kill you.'"

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev
Now that Elena has professed her love for Damon on the The Vampire Diaries, the big question is: How long before Damon messes it up?
"One of the big obstacles [for them], especially for Damon, is to make sure he doesn't f--- it up because he has a tendency to do that whether he means to or not," Nina Dobrev tells us in the video interview below from the show's Atlanta set. "He's going to try to be on his best behavior and Elena is going to embrace him, but she knows who he is and sometimes that comes to the surface and reminds her. But they'll try to figure it out because love prevails and they want their love to conquer all. They have gone through so much to get to where they are now. If they didn't keep fighting for it, it would be a shame."
