'Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Spoilers: New Villain Markos Arrives at Mystic Falls in Episode 17

By on

Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) may have cemented her fate as the villain again in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 but it will not be for long. The E!Online spoiler report on the CW TV series tease that a new villain named Markos will be arriving at Mystic Falls soon with executive producer Julie Plec even teasing the fans about the storyline focusing on the mysterious Travelers.

The charming but a scary leader Markos is set to make an appearance in the upcoming Episode 17. The answers to the questions involving the Travelers is expected to be provided since the 100th episode "500 Years of Solitude" showed a group of Travelers surrounding the trapped Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) to get a bucket of blood while reciting an unknown spell.

The Travelers' agenda is unclear as well but executive producer Julie Plec has assured that "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 will touch on the story of Nadia's (Olga Fonda) faction. "We've been doing a nice slow, slow, slow burn of this Traveler storyline...what we will come to understand what exactly it is these people want, what it has to do with this alleged doppelgänger prophecy and what they need from our doppelgängers. At the end of that, there will be a face to that group that we will meet later in the season who we haven't cast yet," revealed Ms Plec in the E!Online TV Scoop report.

Markos' arrival at Mystic Falls appears to be a threat to the TVD gang. The character has been described as someone super dark with his followers worshipping him and people cannot help but be pulled towards him like a magnet.

Meanwhile, "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 continues with Episode 13 titled "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on Thursday night, February 6, at 8 p.m. ET on the CW network. The new episode will show Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) returning to his evil ways with Augustine vampire friend Enzo (Michael Malarkey) after Katherine, who is in Elena's body and so into Stefan, broke Damon's heart by declaring that the relationship is over in Episode 12 "The Devil Inside."
