In the final scene of season 4 finale, it seems we have seen Silas's true face, which is same as Stefan's. But has any offical source confirmed that is the case? This show has just about endless loopholes, which is its strength, but also its weakness because while it allows element of suprise, it also tends to create inconsistencies. One thing they have established is that Silas is either a master manipulator, or a big liar. So for all we know Stefan being his shadow self could be another lie. So has the writers given any confirmation yet?
