Connor Jordan’s head-snapping demise on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 5 may have come as a shock to many viewers, but it seems that fang fans are in for a real treat when another member of the hunter’s warrior family is introduced in TVD episode 4.13.
So who’s the studly newcomer in Mystic Falls? It’s none other than a fella named Vaughn, who Zap2It describes as a “ruggedly handsome, charming, built, and tough as hell” guy in his late 20s with a super-sexy accent. Not only is he one of The Five hunters and very comfortable with staking/beheading/burning bloodsucking creatures, but he also happens to be well versed in all things Damon Salvatore, which he unfortunately uses to his advantage.
However, before you begin worrying about Damon too much, perhaps the following news will console you! The one thing that Vaughn does not know about the older Salvatore brother is that he’s head over heels for one Miss Elena Gilbert, the freshest baby vamp in town. And this detail just might help Damon gain the upper hand when he comes face-to-face with the new militant slayer.
Additionally, in that same episode, viewers will officially meet a lovely yet mysterious character by the name of Caitlin. Caitlin, who will be a recurring character throughout the season, is described as “a woman with a profound and surprising impact on Professor Shane, and she’ll help shed some light on his motivations.” Hopefully, Caitlin is going to team up with Bonnie or at least give her a head’s up on the shady Professor’s history with The Five and magic!
What are your thoughts on Vaughn and Caitlin? Do you think it’s a coincidence that they both appear in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 13 or could they possibly be in cahoots? Post your theories in the comments!
