When The Vampire Diaries left off, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) had been possessed by a mysterious creature lurking in the Armory's vault - but that's only the half of it.

As previously reported, an incredibly powerful new woman will arrive in Mystic Falls this season. And we hear that she'll have close ties to what's happening with Damon and Enzo, who are still on their killing spree when Season 8 picks back up. But while this raggedy trio is definitely ruthless, they aren't necessarily as evil as you might think.
