‘The Vampire Diaries’ Will Introduce Its First Same-Sex Couple in Season 7

It’s not only the Supreme Court that’s rolling with the changes: it’s The Vampire Diaries too, of all things.

Not that this is a complaint, of course. It’s being reported by TVLine that The CW show will introduce its first same-sex couple in its upcoming seventh season.

The trio of new characters will be introduced in Season 7 will feature two females who just so happen to be lovers. Newcomers Nora and Mary Louise are the same-sex couple in question, with Mary Louise being described as the dreamer of the two, while Nora is fierce and headstrong. In a parallel with the struggles some people are still facing in the gay community, Mary Louise and Nora have apparently been keeping their relationship a secret for close to a century. A freaking CENTURY!

(After all, somebody’s gotta replace Elena)

This alone would make things complicated enough, but the third member of the trio appears to be a bit of a wild card to the situation. Valerie, the third new character coming to Mystic Falls, has a darker sense of humor due to trauma in her past. What’s her story? I suppose we’ll get to the bottom of it when The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 7 on Thursday, October 8, on The CW.

How do you think these new characters will factor into Season 7? What would you want to see them do? Sound off in the comments!
