Well so far the storyline has been hinting on this so called greater evil that is about to hit MF right? And in episode 6, they did unravel some of the secrets as well... Sort of at least... So while watching episode 6, something crossed me mind!
What if this professor Shane has a hidden agenda of coming to MF?
He mentioned something about this person called Silas that had been buried by some witch and was supposedly "immortal" and even older than the originals... So maybe Silas is the 1st ever vampire on earth, making him the most powerful of the lot... Which explains the greater evil part
Maybe Shane is finding Silas and the hunters mark is not a map to the cure but to the Silas instead (quite possible since the curse of the moon and the sun was a ruse as well) that's why he is so into the completion of the mark? Or is he Silas himself? And even April and Matt confirmed that Shane did have something to do with the pastors blowing up incident...
All I know is that Silas is suppose to be the badass of the season for now...
