The finale episode of The Vampire Diaries, Season 4 majorly tugged at the heartstrings of avid TVD watchers. Last we saw, Stefan’s locked away — and drowning! — thanks to his doppelganger, Silas. But, as much as the first immortal being in the world sucked to holy hell, he’s supposedly not the worst we’ll see on the show.

According to TV Guide, Executive Producer Julie Plec says of Season 5 Silas, “He still wants to get free from what he calls ‘this stinking 2,000-year-old immortal life.’ He still hopes to die, to cross over to the other side, and be with his true love” thereby throwing “a wrench in things” for Mystic Falls’ resident vamps, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder).

Julie continues, “He’s causing the most trouble at the beginning of the season, for sure, but by no means is he the biggest villain.” Dun dun dun…
