“The Vampires Diaries” season 7 has made the storyline take a three-year leap. The time jump shows Stefan being chased by a mystery woman. The X-shaped cut on his chest has opened up.
Who is the mystery woman chasing Stefan? Caroline can be an option after her breakup with Stefan. It can also be Mary Louise, Bonnie, Nora, Valerie or Lily, who is already dead as revealed in episode 8. In the future, Stefan is happily living with Valerie in Chicago.
The name of the huntress is Rayna played by Leslie-Anne Huff. She is not Elena’s doppelganger for sure.
Executive producer Caroline Dries said, “That’s definitely just a coincidence. We looked at a lot of actors, and I was like, ‘I think she looks exactly like Nina.’ I was convinced otherwise. I actually haven’t met her yet in person, though, and everyone says she doesn’t look like her in person.”
In episode 10 of Vampire Diaries season 7, we see a glimpse of her face. She is going to make her debut in episode 11. She has come back to the land of the living to take her revenge. The “Vampire Diaries” season 7 episode 11 spoilers suggest that none of the gang members are at risk. So why only Stefan? Dries has an answer. “We’ll get to see her present day story and then everything will click when you see her in the future.”
“Vampire Diaries” season 7 episode 11 spoilers suggest some unseen stories about Rayna’s past that will be unveiled to answer the question.
