Blackmore will play Lady Toni Bevell, a visitor from overseas who has a lot in common with Sam and Dean (another hunter perhaps?). The actress, who plays Valerie on The Vampire Diaries, will make her debut on Supernatural this spring and will recur in Season 12 as well.
At the moment, the Winchesters are neck-deep in their dealings with "The Darkness" on the show, but that arc is, in theory, going to wrap up at the end of the current Season 11. Is it possible that's going to happen with the help of this mysterious Lady Toni Bevell? We'll have to wait and see.
