    Based on what is said about the Meloni character, that he is the mastermind of the mainstream movement, and that I have not seen a casting call for a ‘Roman”….it seems to fit. By the way I love this website…I look for spoilers on my lunch break at work and stumbled to your website about a month ago. I love it!

      Aww thanks so much for your kind words! I try to get info up as soon as I find it! Yah it has been bugging the heck outta me how they cast Christopher M but no mention of his character! I posted this idea that he might be Roman in one of the FB forums. It makes a lot of sense. He was supposed to be a “powerful vampire/authority member”. Glad I am able to make your lunch break a bit more fun!!
