For Aidan (Sam Witwer), someone from his past will come into the fold and complicate matters even more. Centuries-old vampire royal Suren (Dollhouse's Dichen Lachman) joins in on the supernatural fun -- causing Boston's vampire society to go into a frenzy (and possibly Aidan's romantic life).
Without his maker Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) by his side, Witwer tells THR that Aidan has his hands full in season 2. "With Bishop being gone, Aidan starts taking on some of his traits. It's scary to watch," Witwer says. With the new season starting up, the actor discusses Suren and Aidan's past, a new character that catches Aidan's eye and the struggles the others will face.
The Hollywood Reporter: What is Aidan's journey and conflict going to be in season 2?
Sam Witwer: Extraordinarily dark is what his journey is going to be like. This season has a lot to do with things catching up with Aidan. In the first season, he stayed away from his old buddies and tried to stay on the straight and narrow. Now he has to deal with those people every day. What ends up happening is that the old character traits, aspects of who he once was, start returning to him. He takes a dramatic fall. Things get bad, they get worse and they get dark. I hope we don't have too many fans turning against Aidan.
