vampire diaries season 5 cast 'The Vampire Diaries' bloodlines: Get to know the complicated family tree with our infographic

“The Vampire Diaries” Season 5 kicked off on Thursday (Oct. 3) with a surprising new mystery: who is Elena’s (now-dead) college roommate Megan, and what was her relationship with Elena’s (also dead) father? Before we can even attempt to figure out Megan’s connection to Elena’s family, it would probably be a good idea to brush up on all the relationships we do know on The CW’s supernatural drama so far.

In the past four seasons, “The Vampire Diaries” has woven a tangled web of relationships and connections as vampires turned humans, werewolves awakened their curses, hybrids were created, witches cast their spells, and humans had extramarital affairs. We’ve simplified matters and charted out all of the bloodlines on “The Vampire Diaries” for you.
