Vampire Diaries Casts Stitchers Star as Mysterious Season 8 Character

The Vampire Diaries Spoilers

If Allison Scagliotti thinks stitching her friend into dead people’s memories is a tad on the unusual side, just wait until she steps foot in Mystic Falls.

Scagliotti, who also stars on Freeform’s Stitchers, will recur in The Vampire Diaries‘ upcoming eighth season — premiering Friday, Oct. 21 at 8/7c on The CW — as Georgie, TVLine has learned, an occult reach intern “driven by a horrific darkness in her own past.” (So, yeah, she’s got some demons.)

Georgie, who “channels her existential anxieties into a new field of study that will force her to confront her deepest fears,” makes her first appearance in the Season 8 premiere.

Much of TVD‘s eighth season is being kept under wraps; when last we spoke with executive producer Julie Plec, she couldn’t even reveal the name of the mysterious creature that turned Damon and Enzo evil in the season finale. Plec did, however, tell us that she’s “really excited” about the show’s new theme, “which should become very clear the minute [The CW starts] announcing episode titles.”
