I Support TVD's Foray's Into Plot Development Like I Support a Baby Learning to Walk

The Vampire Diaries season 4 has now introduced Todd Williams as the vampire hunter Connor, and something oh-so-intriguing about him is the tattoo on his arm that Jeremy could see but Matt couldn't. What's the deal with that?

According to E! Online, "the invisible tattoo is a map of sorts," and the reason he can see it is not because he can see ghosts. However, they also said that it "is no coincidence" the same design is part of Jeremy's holy card, as seen below. That same design is also part of the sword Alexander (Paul Telfer) holds in the promotional photo from "The Five" below. Alexander is a vampire hunter from the 1100s, but how are they all connected? How is Jeremy connected to them? Jeremy has to be on Connor's radar now because he can see the tattoo, but it seems like even Jeremy doesn't quite know what's going on since he just assumed everyone could see it. Will he come to wish he had never said anything to Connor?

The Vampire Diaries season 4 is going to see Connor offer to train Jeremy, but given his sister is now a vampire, that doesn't seem likely to go over so well. Still, there are a few questions surrounding Connor, and now included in that is what exactly that tattoo is a map of. Why is it etched into the bullets Connor uses? Why does it burn to the touch? How much does Connor know about hunting? Hopefully they give some of those answers soon, and even though it's hard not to worry about what Connor sticking around means for the residents of Mystic Falls, at the same time, it's hard not to be intrigued and excited for what's coming up next with him.

I was so on board the Klaroline train, people — and AM on board — but with Klaus on his usual string of bad behavior, am I the only one feeling like it’s looking less and less likely that this pairing will ever get a chance to play out? Probably not. But Joseph Morgan recently gave me a reason to turn my fan-frown upside down.

When EW recently hit the set of The Vampire Diaries in Atlanta, Morgan said in the first few episode of this season, fans will definitely see a little bit more between these two. “We’ll certainly see their relationship — but I don’t mean relationship in the sense that they’re dating — but we’ll certainly see the dynamic between them develop,” he says.

How? He wouldn’t say. Though he said he relishes the opportunity to show new shades of Klaus. “[The Klaus/Caroline storyline] brings out Klaus’ humanity. I love playing the more charming side of him and the scenes with Caroline really allow me to do that,” he says. “So I hope he has a shot with her. I think everyone deserves love and a second chance.”

If/When his chance comes, however, it will be easier said than done. “I wonder how much of a compromise he’d have to make in order for her to come around to him and whether he will be able to make that compromise,” says Morgan.

I'd like to think that something interesting will actually result from this Hunter plot line.  Everyone loves a centuries old cult.  What's the atheist equivalent of a prayer circle?
