As if you didn't already guess, the transition from high school to college will not be an easy one for our favorite bloodsuckers on "The Vampire Diaries." 

When Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) head to Whitmore College for their freshman year in Season 5, death tags along -- that's right, yet another person (or people) will die ... and pretty fast, too! 

Here are all the details we know so far: Elena and Caroline experience the death of one of their fellow freshman students in an October episode, E! Online reports. The silver lining? The death could spark a potential romance as it will lead one of the ladies to meet a possible new love interest: Aaron, a handsome co-ed who may have a connection the dearly departed.

So who will Aaron woo? Caroline is already reportedly going to fall for Whitmore College upperclassman Jesse, and Elena is supposedly happy in her new relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder). But since things always change so fast on "TVD," your guess is as good as ours.

"The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
