at .

Beware, Mystic Falls.

A trio of new blood suckers are on the way.

Sources have confirmed that Scarlett Byrne (Falling Skies) and Teressa Liane (Neighbours) will come on board The Vampire Diaries Season 7 as Heretics Nora and Mary Louise, the show’s first-ver same-sex couple.

These women have been in a mostly secret relationship for a century and are fiercely protective of one another.

Then there’s Elizabeth Blackmore. The former Legend of the Seeker will portray Valerie, a violent Heretic with many past struggles who is definitely NOT about peace.

The Vampire Diaries Season 7 will premiere on Thursday, October 8 and include somewhat of a time jump.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie, will haunt me, forever.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
