In last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we were introduced to the secret hangout of the Travelers, where we discovered that there was yet another Stefan doppelganger lurking somewhere as an EMT. And with Caroline and Enzo off to hunt him down, could there be a love connection there? And what about this mysterious leader of the Travelers named Markos? What could his arrival mean for the residents of Mystic Falls?

We caught up with Candice Accola to get some information about just how bad Markos is, and what she thinks about Steroline, Klaroline, and more:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We ended last week with Carolne and Enzo going off to find yet another Stefan doppelganger, and my biggest fear was that the next episode would pick up with them already back, but it sounds like we’re going to see this trip and maybe learn a little more about this doppelganger?
CANDICE ACCOLA: Yes, we are going on a road trip with Caroline and Enzo, and they’re on the hunt for Stefan’s doppelganger, and so we’re going to go along with them, and we’re going to meet this doppelganger and we’re going to learn a little bit more about why he is so valuable to the Travelers.

And that leads me to my next concern: Caroline was talking last week like she’s going to be able to go off and kill this guy, but it would be difficult to kill someone who looks exactly like your best friend.
Yes, and I think Caroline has told herself, “No I can do this, I can do this,” and Stefan’s a little bit more clear-headed. At the end of the episode we saw him saying, “I’m not sure you quite understand what you’re saying right now; I’m not sure you can actually handle it.” But Caroline’s off on this road trip to do what she can for Stefan, and Stefan is her main priority, and their relationship and their friendship has grown so much at this point, so it’s her kind of act of valor to really support Stefan, save Stefan and make sure that he is safe. And whatever she has to do in order to keep him safe, she’s willing to do.

I’ve read two different accounts of Stefan and Caroline sharing a moment of friendship in this episode and then potentially it being a little cold outside and maybe cuddling a bit, so what can you tell me about what’s in store for the two of them this week?
I can say when we really filmed the scenes it was very cold, incredibly cold. [Laughs]We saw some really great moments between Caroline and Stefan as friends in last week’s episode, and that’s going to continue into this week’s. Primarily, we’re going to be focused on Caroline and Enzo’s road trip, but we’re also going to see a really nice opportunity, a really raw moment of friendship between Caroline and Stefan.

Paul [Wesley] got his say at PaleyFest when he mentioned how he’d like to see them take that next step and maybe make things romantic, but personally, would you want to see them go there?
Ever since season 2, when Stefan kind of took Caroline under his vampire wing and taught her how to behave like a good little vampire, there’s been a lot of viewers and fans in the Twitterverse expressing their hope of Steroline, I think they call it, to happen one day. So there’s definitely been speculation and some build up, and it would definitely be a bold choice for both of them to engage in any sort of romantic relationship given the friendship of Caroline and Elena and the history between Elena and Stefan. And so you never know what can happen in the future between these two characters, but I imagine it being very dramatic if anything were to happen.

Personally, I was kind of into Caroline and Enzo last week, and I know this week, he opens up a little bit, so is there a connection there?
Well I love that any character that comes on with an accent [is] attracted to Caroline, and I love that the writers gave that a nod in last week’s episode when Enzo goes, “Oh I heard you had a thing for accents.” [Laughs] Caroline and Enzo will be on this road trip together; they’re going to spend some time together, and through Caroline, we’re going to be able to learn more about this new character, Enzo, and why he’s in Mystic Falls, why he’s such great friends with Damon, and a little bit more about his history and who he is, and we’re going to just get to know this new character a little bit.

I’m still trying to work out how I feel about the Travelers, but I know we’re meeting their leader, Markos, this week. Is he the next big bad? What can you tell me about him?
Markos is definitely the next big bad. The Travelers are his legion, his army, so we’re going to learn more about them. We’re going to learn more about the mythology of the Travelers, why they’ve chosen Mystic Falls, and if they are all unified or not.

How does Markos compare to other big bads, to Silas or Klaus or Katherine. Where does he rank?
To be quite honest, we’re still learning about Markos throughout the end of the season, and he’s pretty bad. I think where he differs from the big bads of the past is that what comes with him is a whole new mythology that we’re learning about that is really based in witchcraft. It’s a whole other realm, so what makes him interesting and terrifying is that he’s rooted in [this] new mythology that we’ve been learning about throughout the season, so as we learn about the Travelers, we’re going to learn more about how big and how bad Markos is.

At PaleyFest, EP Caroline Dries also talked about things looking bad and getting worse for Stefan, so what can you tell me about his end-of-season run? Is this going to be awful?
In what way?

I’ll put it this way: Can it be worse than getting stuck in a lock box at the bottom of a quarry?
No, I think being stuck in a lock box is pretty awful. We’re still getting the finale together at this point, but all of the characters are going into the end of the [season] with hope, and if you’ve been a viewer of the series, you know how that turns out sometimes.

Finally, I can’t not touch on Klaroline. At PaleyFest, Joseph Morgan said he kind of feels like it’s more or less a done deal. Is that how you look at the two of them?
Personally, I’ve always looked at the two of them as a done deal, but I guess that’s just the logical side saying, “Why would you ever want to date like a serial murderer to buy you fancy things every once in a while and who’s a terrible awful evil person?” But I guess from the fans and viewers perspective, it’s a little bit more romantic than that.[Laughs] As far as on the series goes, they’re living in two different worlds at this point. Will Caroline ever visit New Orleans? Who knows. Will Klaus ever come back for seconds? Who knows. But at this point it seems that he’s pretty preoccupied in New Orleans and Caroline is definitely preoccupied at college.
