Well here is a turn up for the books! The American TV network CW has just announced that The Vampire Diaries is introducing – wait for it – the show’s first same-sex couple.
Although, it’s too early to tell the exact plot, the new characters already have particular descriptions. However, what we do know is two characters Nora and Mary Louise, are a dangerous duo of down-low lovers with murderous tendencies.
The vampires, both turned in their mid-20s, have kept their relationship a secret for more than a century, and although their connection is clear to those able to infiltrate their inner circle. Mary Louise’s constant doting can sometimes feel a bit smothery for fiery Nora’s liking. Still, anyone foolish enough to cross either of them will feel both their wraths.
There’s not much else know about the roles but we chuffed to hear the show is finally giving us some more lesbian visibility.
Season 7 of The Vampire Diaries premieres on October 7th on the CW.
