"The Vampire Diaries" is on a break right now, but that doesn't mean there isn't any news on what is to come. On Feb. 18, E!Online posted that there are going to be two new characters when the show returns and gave a little information on each of them. One of them is Enzo's love interest and the other could have a secret agenda. To find out more, keep reading, but only if you don't mind spoilers.
Enzo will have a new love interest. Her name is Maggie (Heather Hemmens) and she will be making her introduction in episode 19. While this is the first time Maggie will actually appear on the show, her story was already revealed back in episode 9. In that episode, Enzo told Damon about falling in love with Maggie in 1953. She was a lab assistant to Dr. Whitmore, who performed experiments on him and other vampires.
In the episode, Enzo said,
"She wasn't part of the torture and experiments. For the longest while, she didn't realize Dr. Whitmore was doing more than just observing my behavior. I didn't have the heart to tell her. I was just so glad of the company. When she finally realized what was going on here, she couldn't bear it. So she said she was sorry and she left."
The other new character is Luke, who will be played by Chris Brochu. He is a gay student at Whitmore college who ends up bonding with Elena and Caroline. He will be making is debut in episode 16 and will be in several. The only other piece of information revealed about his character is that he has a secret agenda and has come into their lives for "mysterious and dangerous" reasons related to the tension between the witches and the travelers.
Heather Hemmens of "Hellcats" recently appeared on "Grey's Anatomy" and Chris Brochu has been on "CIS: NY," "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "Melissa & Joey."
"The Vampire Diaries" will return to the CW on Feb. 27.
