Stefan who? Paul is in full-on Silas mode in this behind-the-scenes shot from a season five photo shoot.
With Stefan chilling in a box at the bottom of a lake, Silas is going to be free to run amok when The Vampire Diaries returns for its fifth season Oct. 3, and it looks like Paul Wesley is already comfortable with his new dark persona. The CW posted this picture, a behind-the-scenes outtake from the show’s newest photo shoot, to its Facebook page Aug. 20 — and we’re more pumped for “Stilas” than ever!
‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 5: What Can We Expect From Silas?
Just when we thought we had Silas all figured out, he revealed himself to be the original version of Stefan’s doppelganger on the fourth season finale, turning everything we knew about him — and Stefan — completely upside down. We’ve learned a few nuggets about the big bad since then, just enough to entice us until we see him again in October.
“[There will be] a pretty cool mythology that will carry on in terms of Silas, and the mystery of his past — 1,000 or 2,000 years ago,” executive producer Julie Plec said during the show’s panel June 9 at the ATX Television Festival in Austin.
If this means we might flashback to Paul Wesley in a cave, count me in!
