Someone on the Whitmore College campus is covering up a vampire murder and we have a pretty good idea who that is.

The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere: Who died?

On this week’s Vampire Diaries, viewers will meet the mysterious Dr. Wesley Maxfield (Rick Cosnett), a brilliant professor who’s clearly hiding a dark and dangerous secret.  Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) suspicions about their teacher are further confirmed when fellow student Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) shares some intriguing information.

“He can be a jerk,” Cosnett told TVGuide.com about his character during our visit to the show’s set. “There’s a side to him that will be revealed which is not as nice as we’d all like.”

Cosnett admits it isn’t too long before Maxfield’s jig is up and his motives are revealed. (Hint: Think along the lines of the Founder’s Council.)  “Elena and Caroline are coming into my world, and in bits and pieces, they’re starting to discover parts of Dr. Maxfield,” Cosnett says. “He shows a lot about the human condition and how things go wrong and the dichotomy between good and evil.”

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
